# -Fifty minutes ago if it was four times as many minutes past 3'o' clock, how

many minutes is it to 6 'o' clock?
soln:

difference between 3o clock and 6 o clock is 180 minutes.
so the difference between current time and 6 o clock be x.
so x+50+4x 180
5x 180-50
x 26
so the current time is 5:34

-1. Find the day of the week on 16th july, 1776.
Ans: Tuesday

Explanation:16th july, 1776 means = 1775 years + period from 1st
january to 16th july.Now, 1600 years have 0 odd days.100 years
have 5 odd days.75 years = 18 leap years + 57 ordinary years= (36
+ 57) odd days = 93 odd days= 13 weeks + 2 odd days = 2 odd
daysTherefore, 1775 years have (0 + 5 + 2) odd days = 0 odd
days.Now, days from 1st Jan to 16th july; 1776

Jan Feb March April May June July31 + 29 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 30 +
16 = 198 days

= (28 weeks + 2 days) odd daysTherefore, total number of odd
days = 2Therefore, the day of the week was Tuesday

2 .Find the angle between the minute hand and hour hand of a click
when the time is 7.20?

Ans: 100deg

Sol: Angle traced by the hour hand in 12 hours = 360 degrees.
Angle traced by it in 7 hrs 20 min i.e. 22/3 hrs = [(360/12) *
(22/3)] = 220 deg.Angle traced by minute hand in 60 min = 360
deg.Angle traced by it in 20 min = [(360/20) * 60] = 120 deg.

past 12.Gain in 24 hours = [(5/11) * (60*24)/65] = 10 10/43 min. 145/6 hrs of this clock = 24 hours of the correct clock. How much of the day does the clock gain or lose? Ans: the clock gains 10 10/43 minutes Sol: In a correct clock.A clock is set right at 8 a.55 minutes are gained in 60 min.60 min. At what time between 2 and 3 o’ clock will the hands 0a a clock . required angle = (220 .m.m. spaces over the hour hand in 60 minutes.m. What will be the true time when the clock indicates 1 p. But they are together after 65 min.120) = 100deg. the minute hand must gain 60 minutes over the hour hand. gain in 65 minutes = (65 5/11 . the clock gains 10 10/43 minutes in 24 hours.The minute hand of a clock overtakes the hours hand at intervals of 65 min of the correct time.65) = 5/11 min. the minute hand gains 55 min.24 hours 10 min. the correct time is 28 hrs 48 min.———————————————- 4.———————————————- 5. ———————————————- 3.Therefore. of this clock = 24 hours of the correct clock. The clock gains 10 minutes in 24 hours. on a day to 1 p. 48 min.Therefore.Therefore. Therefore.29 hours of this clock = [24 * (6/145) * 29] hrs of the correct clock= 28 hrs 48 min of the correct clock.m.m. past 12. on the following day = 29 hours. are gained in [(60/55) * 60] min == 65 5/11 min.This is 48 min. after 8 a. on the following day? Ans. Sol: Time from 8 a. To be together again.

———————————————- 6. Top 2) A can run 22. b covers 480m and therefore remains 20m behind.Therefore. past 2. To be together.Then . they are 10 min space apart.5 m or 6 sec. B runs 300m in =6*300*2/45 =80 sec. the hands will coincide at 10 10/11 min. What was the day of the week on 12th January. past 2.5 m in 6sec. the hour hand is at 2 and the minute hand is at 12.: Monday ———————————————- 7.5 m while B runs 25 m. 1979?Ans: Friday 1) In a 300 m race A beats B by 22. Therefore. i. b covers 4m A covers 360m B covers 4/3*360=480m Thus when A reaches the winning post.A win by B? Sol: The speeds of A and B =3:4 To reach the winning post A will have to cover a distance of 500-140 m i.together?Ans: 10 10/11 min. the minute hand must gain 10 minutes over the other hand.In a kilometre race B beats A by? Sol: B runs 25 m .A has a start of 140 m.e 360 m while A covers 3m. . 55 minutes are gained by it in 60 min. Now. First day of 1999 is sunday what day is the last dayAns.What is the B's time over the course? Sol: B runs 22. A wins by 20m.A runs 45/2 m B runs 1000 A runs = 1000*45/2*25 =900m B beats A by 100m 3)In a 500 m race. Sol: At 2 o’ clock. the ratio of the speeds of two contestants A and B is 3:4. 10 min will be gained in [(60/55) * 10] min = 10 10/11 min.e. B's time over the course =80 sec.
