A ‘car owner buys petrol at Rs. 7.50, Rs. 8 and Rs. 8.50 per litre for three successive years What approximately is the average cost per litre of petrol if he spends Rs 4,000 each year?

• Let us take LCM of 7.5, 8, 8.5 we get : 510 • Let us assume that we have used Rs. 510 each year. Thus in the first year, we have used 8.5*8 liters and in the last year, we have used 7.5 *8 liters and in the second year we have used 7.5*8.5 liters. Thus the average cost per liter is : (3 *510)/191.75 = 7.97 answer.

Solution…
• Let us assume B takes X days. • A takes .75X to complete .5 work or 1.5X days to complete the entire work. • 1/X + 1/1.5X = 1/18 • (2.5 / 1.5x) = 1/18 • 1.5x = 45 • X = 30 • Thus B will take 30 days to complete the work.

www.afterschoool.tk

AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS

27

Solution… • 1/6 + ¼ = (10/24) or 2.4 hours. • Thus it will be approx. 4 + hours. • First 4 hours will be filled by A and B each, which will give 2/6 + 2/4 = 20/24 • Now A will fill the remaining 4/24, which will take A exact one hour. • Thus it will take 5 hours complete to fill the tank. Answer.

29

Solution… • • • • • Let us assume the distance = X X/40 – X/50 = 6/60 10x / 2000 = 1/10 100x = 2000 or X = 20 20/40 gives 1/2 hours or 30 minutes, which is 11 minutes late, so correct time is : 30 -11 = 19 minutes answer.

(1) 500 (2) 600 (3) 750 (4) 900

www.afterschoool.tk

AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS

31

Solution… • In one minute the distance covered by the train is : • 90 * 1/60 = 1.5 KM. • This is length of train + length of platform. • (both are equal). • Thus the length of platform / length of train is 750 meters. Answer.

A vessel is filled with liquid, 3 parts of which are water and 5 parts syrup. How much of the mixture must be drawn off and replaced with water so that mixture may be half water and half syrup ?
(1).5 • (2).3 • (3)1/7 • (4) .2
www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS 33

Solution…
• Let us assume that total mixture is 8 liters. Now we have to have 4 liters of water and syrup each. • Thus 1 liter of syrup has to be taken out. In order to draw 1 liter syrup, we have to use this formula :
www.afterschoool.tk

• Solution: 8/5 * 1 = 1.6 • Thus we will draw out 1.6 liters of mixture and add this much of water and then both the quantities will be equal. • 1.6/8 or .2 is the right answer so answer is (4) option.
