7. Direction: Study the table carefully and answer the following questions.

The following table shows the total population in 6 different cities and the percentage of females in them.

 Name of the City Total number of Population Percentage of female A 32000 50% B 64000 52% C 48000 35% D 50000 60% E 40000 40% F 45000 45%
Question:
The number of females in city A is approximately what percent more or less than the number of males in city E?
• 30%
• 45%
• 66.66%
• 35%
• 33.33%

Alternate Method

Given:

 Name of the City Total number of Population Percentage of female A 32000 50% E 40000 40%

Formula Used:

Decreased percentage = {(Decreased value)/(Base value)} × 100

Calculation:

The number of females in city A = 50% of 32000

⇒ (50/100) × 32000

⇒ 32000/2

⇒ 16000

The percentage of males in city E = (100 - 40)%

⇒ 60%

Total number of males in city E = 60% of 40000

⇒ (60/100) × 40000

⇒ 60 × 400

⇒ 24000

The required decreased value = 24000 - 16000

⇒ 8000

The required decreased percentage = (8000/24000) × 100

⇒ 100/3

⇒ 33.33%

∴ The number of females in city A is approximately 33.33% less than the number of males in city E.

• 18400

Given:

 Name of the City Total number of Population Percentage of female A 32000 50% B 64000 52% D 50000 60% F 45000 45%

Calculation:

The percentage of males in city A = (100 - 50)%

⇒ 50%

Total number of males in city A = 50% of 32000

⇒ (50/100) × 32000

⇒ 32000/2

⇒ 16000

The percentage of males in city D = (100 - 60)%

⇒ 40%

Total number of males in city D = 40% of 50000

⇒ (40/100) × 50000

⇒ 40 × 500

⇒ 20000

Total number of males in city A and D together = 16000 + 20000

⇒ 36000

Total number of females in city B = 52% of 64000

⇒ (52/100) × 64000

⇒ 52 × 640

⇒ 33280

Total number of females in city F = 45% of 45000

⇒ (45/100) × 45000

⇒ 45 × 450

⇒ 20250

Total number of females in city B and F together = 33280 + 20250

⇒ 53530

The required difference = 53530 - 36000

⇒ 17530

∴ The difference between the number of males in cities A and D together and the number of females in cities B and F together will be 17530.

9. Direction: Study the table carefully and answer the following questions.

The following table shows the total population in 6 different cities and the percentage of females in them.

 Name of the City Total number of Population Percentage of female A 32000 50% B 64000 52% C 48000 35% D 50000 60% E 40000 40% F 45000 45%
Question:
What is the average number of males in cities B, E and F together?
• 19000
• 19725
• 26490
• 28950
• 26000

Since population are in thousands we can ignore last three zeros to simplify the calculation

⇒ Average = (64 × (100 - 52)% + 40 × (100 - 40)%  + 45 × (100 - 45)%)/3

⇒ Average = (64 × 48% + 40 × 60%  + 45 × 55%)/3

⇒ Average = (64 × 16% + 40 × 20%  + 15 × 55%)

⇒ Average = (64 × 16 + 40 × 20  + 15 × 55)/100     (%→ 1/100)

⇒ Average = (1024 + 800 + 825)/100

⇒ Average = (2649)/100

Since we ignored zeros at last we need to multiply with 3 zeros

∴ Required Average =  26490

Alternate Method

Given:

 Name of the City Total number of Population Percentage of female B 64000 52% E 40000 40% F 45000 45%

Calculation:

The percentage of males in city B = (100 - 52)%

⇒ 48%

Total number of males in city B = 48% of 64000

⇒ (48/100) × 64000

⇒ 48 × 640

⇒ 30720

The percentage of males in city E = (100 - 40)%

⇒ 60%

Total number of males in city E = 60% of 40000

⇒ (60/100) × 40000

⇒ 60 × 400

⇒ 24000

The percentage of males in city F = (100 - 45)%

⇒ 55%

Total number of males in city F = 55% of 45000

⇒ (55/100) × 45000

⇒ 55 × 450

⇒ 24750

Total number of male in cities B, E and F together = 30720 + 24000 + 24750

⇒ 79470

The required average = 79470/3

⇒ 26490

∴ The average number of males in cities B, E, and F together will be 26490.

10. The radius of the circle is 13 cm more than the breadth of a rectangle. The area of the circle is 3850 sq.cm. The circumference of the circle is equal to the perimeter of a rectangle. The area of the rectangle is equal to the area of a square. Find the perimeter of a square.
• 352 cm
• 164 cm
• 176 cm
• 188 cm
• 196 cm

(Radius of circle)2 = 3850 × (1/ π)

Radius of a circle = 35 cm

Breadth of a rectangle = 35 – 13 = 22 cm

Circumference of a circle = 2π × 35 = 220 cm

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2(Length + Breadth)

Length of a rectangle = (220/2) – 22 = 88 cm

Area of square = length × breadth = 88 × 22 = 1936 sq.cm

Side of a square = (1936)1/2

Side of a square = 44 cm Perimeter of a square = 4 × 44 = 176 cm

11. Total age of 12 students in a class is 120 years. Two students of average age 8 years left the class and 5 new students of average age 11 years joined the same class. Find the new approximate average age of class.
• 13 years
• 12 years
• 10 years
• 8 years
• 7 years

Given:

Total age of 12 students = 120 years

Total age of two students who left class = 8 × 2 = 16 years

Total age of 5 students who joined class = 5 × 11 = 55 years

Total age of (12 - 2 + 5 = 15) students of a class = 120 - 16 + 55 = 159 years

∴ Required average = 159/15 = 10.6 years ≈ 10 years

12. A goods train started from P to Q at a speed of 54 kmph. After 10 hours, a passenger train started from Q to P at a speed of 63 kmph. Two trains will meet when passenger train travels 252 km from point Q. Find the distance between the city P and Q.
• 128 km
• 768 km
• 1008 km
• 960 km
• 458 km

GIVEN :

Speed of goods train = 54 kmph

Speed of passenger train = 63 kmph

Distance covered by goods trains in 10 hours = 54 × 10 = 540 km

CALCULATION :

Let the distance between the P and Q be M km.

Remaining distance to cover for goods trains = M - 540

Relative speed = 54 + 63 = 117 kmph

Two trains meet = 252 km from Q

Then,

⇒ (M - 540)/117 × 63 = 252

⇒ M - 540 = 468

⇒ M = 1008 The distance between the P and Q is 1008 km.

13. In the given question, two equations numbered l and II are given. Solve both the equations and mark the appropriate answer.

• x > y
• x < y
• x ≥ y
• x ≤ y
• x = y or relationship between x and y cannot be established.

Calculation

I. 2x2 - 39x + 189 = 0

⇒ 2x2 - 18x - 21x + 189 = 0

⇒ 2x(x - 9) - 21(x - 9) = 0

⇒ (x - 9) (2x - 21) = 0

⇒ x = 9, 21/2

II. y2 - 16y + 63 = 0

⇒ y2 - 7y - 9y + 63 = 0

⇒ y(y - 7) - 9(y - 7) = 0

⇒ (y - 7) (y - 9) = 0

⇒ y = 7, 9

 Value of x Value of y Relation 9 7 x > y 9 9 x = y 21/2 7 x > y 21/2 9 x > y

∴ x ≥ y

14. In the given question, two equations numbered l and II are given. Solve both the equations and mark the appropriate answer

• x ≥ y
• x = y or the relationship between x and y cannot be established.

Given:

I) 9x2 - 3x - 2 = 0

II) y2 - 8y + 16 = 0

Concept used:

Calculation:

From I,

9x2 - 3x - 2 = 0

⇒ 9x - 6x + 3x - 2 = 0

⇒ 3x(3x - 2) + 1(3x - 2) = 0

⇒ (3x - 2) (3x + 1) = 0

⇒ x = 2/3, - 1/3

From II,

y2 - 8y + 16 = 0

⇒ y2 - 4y - 4y + 16 = 0

⇒ y(y - 4) - 4(y - 4) = 0

⇒ (y - 4) (y - 4) = 0

⇒ y = 4, 4

Comparison between x and y (via Tabulation):

 Value of x Value of y Relation 2/3 4 x < y 2/3 4 x < y - 1/3 4 x < y - 1/3 4 x < y

x < y.

15. In the given question, two equations are numbered l and II as given. Solve both the equations and mark the appropriate answer.

I. x2 + 20x + 64 = 0 II. y2 + 27y + 110 = 0

⇒ x(x + 4) + 16(x + 4) = 0

⇒ (x + 16)(x + 4) = 0

⇒ x = -16, -4

II. y2 + 27y + 110 = 0

⇒ y2 + 5y + 22y + 110 = 0

⇒ y(y + 5) + 22(y + 5) = 0

⇒ (y + 5)(y + 22) = 0

⇒ y = -5, -22

 Value of x Value of y Relation -16 -22 x > y -16 -5 x < y -4 -22 x > y -4 -5 x > y

∴ Relationship between x and y cannot be established
