LET US CHANGE THE WORLD

Solution…
• • • • • • • • • We know that the equation is like this : X^2 – (Sum of roots)X + Product of roots Sum of roots = 3 X^2 +Y^2 = 29 (X+Y)^2 =X^2+Y^2 +2XY 3^2 = 29+2XY XY = -10 Thus solution : X^2-3x-10 = 0 ANSWER

EXPLANATION…
• • • • • • • • • • • • • You can solve the equation as : (X-1) (X-6)(X-3)(X-4) +8=0 (X^2 -7x+6) (X^2-7x+12)+8 = 0 Take X^2-7x as Y (Y+6)(Y+12) +8= 0 Y^2+18Y+80 = 0 Y^2+10y+8y+80=0 Y(y+10) +8(Y+10) = 0, Y=-10 or – 8 (let us try with -10) X^2 -7x = -10 or X^2 -7x+10 =0 X^2-5x-2X+10=0 X(X-5) -2(X-5) Thus X = 5 or 2 answer

Ankit (A), Gautam (G) and Mahipal (M) score only 6,4,and 1 as batsman. The number of G’s sixes are greater by 50% than that of M and less by 25% that that of A. The number of G’s fours are greater by 50% that that of A and less by 25% from M. Number of 1s scored by M is 50% greater than that of A and G’s is 25% greater than that of A. 276 runs were scored in the match, A scores 40 ones. Runs scored from 6s is 75% of runs scored from 4s. Who scored maximum runs?
LET US CHANGE THE WORLD www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHOOOL CENTRE FOR 7

SOLUTION….
• A scores 40 ones. M scores 60 ones and G scores 50 ones. • Total ones = 150 • Remaining runs : 276-150 = 126 (which consist of only 6 and 4) • 6s are 75% to 4s. So their ratio is 3:4 or we can write 3x+4x = 126 • 3X+4X=126 or 7X = 126 or X = 18 • Runs scored through 6 = 54 and runs scored through 4s = 72
LET US CHANGE THE WORLD www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHOOOL CENTRE FOR 8

Continued…
• • • • • • • • • • • • • M’s sixes= X, G= 1.5X , A = 2X X+1.5X+2X=54 4.5X=54 or X=12 G=18 A = 24 A’s fours = X G=1.5X M=2x X+1.5X+2X=72 or 4.5X=72 or X =16 G=24 and M = 32 Now add their total scores : A= 40+24+16 = 80 M=60+12+32=104 G=50+18+24 = 92 Thus M scores highest runs answer

A train at the speed of 54 Km per hour takes 12 seconds to cross a cyclist moving in the same direction and 6 seconds to cross a cyclist in opposite direction. Both the cyclists are moving at the same pace. How much time will one cyclist take to cross the train, if the train is not moving?
LET US CHANGE THE WORLD www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHOOOL CENTRE FOR 10

Solution…
• • • • • • • • • Let us assume the length of the train as X Let us assume the speed of the cyclist to be Y. X / (54-y) = 12/3600 X/(54+y) = 6/3600 Solving it we get : 3600x = 648 – 12Y 3600X = 324 + 6Y We get 18Y = 324 Y =18
www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHOOOL CENTRE FOR 11

LET US CHANGE THE WORLD

Continued…
• • • • • No put the value of Y in the first equation. 3600X = (54-18) *12 X = 12 / 100 (KM) X – 120 meters Convert the speed of cyclist into meters per second. 18 * 5/18 = 5 meters per second • This is 5meters per second. • Now divide 120 / 5 = 24 seconds. • Thus the cyclist will take 24 seconds each to cross the standing train.

A,B,C are 3 pipes which can individually fill a cistern in 8,10,12 hours respectively. They can be used as inlet or outlet pipes. In the first hour A and B are inlets but C is outlet. In the 2nd hour A and C are inlets and B is outlet. In the 3rd hour, B and C are inlets and A is outlet. After 3 hour, how much water is there in the cistern?
LET US CHANGE THE WORLD www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHOOOL CENTRE FOR 15

SOLUTION…
• In a span of 3 hours, each pipe is open for 2 hours as inlet and 1 hour as outlet. Thus each pipe is inlet for 1 hour. • Combine these : • 1/8 + 1/10 + 1/12 LCM of 8,10,12 is 120 =37/120 cistern is filled up. Answer

Ankit holds 500 shares in JSPL, which gives 20% dividend. When the shares are at 675, he sells them and invests half the proceeds in 10% stocks at 90. The remaining amount is invested in a house, which gives an annual rent of Rs. 2000. find change in his annual income?
LET US CHANGE THE WORLD www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHOOOL CENTRE FOR 17

Solution..
• He gets 20% so he should get 20*500 = 10,000 per year of return now. (assuming the share to have a face value of 100) • Half of the amount will be : 250*675 = 168750 • He will be investing this in stocks – he will get : 1875 shares. On each share, he will get Rs. 10, so he will get : 18750. • On remaining money he gets 2000. thus his new income is 20750, thus there is an increase of 10750 in his income. Answer

How much time does a watch gain or loose per day if its hands coincide every 66 minutes?
• The hands should take 60*60/55 minutes. • Thus it should take 65.45 minutes, (convert .45 into seconds, as it is in decimals) but it is actually taking 66 minutes, thus the watch is slow. It is (66 – 65 minutes and 27 seconds) = 33 seconds slow. • In 24 hours, it will be : (24*33) = 792 seconds slow or 13.2 minutes slow. answer

Which is greater 1000^1000 and 1001^999?
• • • • • • We can write it as 1001^999 / 1000^1000 We can write it as : (1001/1000)^1000 *1/1001 We can write it as : (1+ 1/1000)^1000 * 1/1001 = (1.001)^1000 *1/1001 The firs part will be less than 2 in any case. Thus the final outcome is 2/1001, which is less than 1. (if it were more than 1, then our answer would be opposite). thus 1000^1000 is more than 1001/^999. answer

In 1 km race, A gives B 40 m. start. A wins by 19 seconds. If A gives B 30 seconds start then B wins by 40 meters. Find their respective speeds?
• Let us assume that A takes X seconds and B takes Y seconds to cover the distance. X + 19 = 960/1000 Y Y – 30 = 960/1000X Solving these, we get X and Y as 125 and 150 seconds. Their speeds are: (1000/125 * 18/5) and (1000/150 * 18/5) which are : 28.8 km and 24 km per hour. Answer
