**SECTION V: ELEMENTARY MATHEMATICS (NUMERICAL ABILITY)**

141. (b) Profit will be shared in the ratio of

11 × 3 : 16.5 × 3 : 8.25 × 3

= 11 : 16.5 : 8.25 = 44 : 66 : 33

Anil’s share in the profit:

33/143 × 19.5 = 4.5 lakhs

50% of Anil’s share = 2.25 lakhs.

142. (d) Cost price of TV when discount is not offered = 11250 × 100/90

= Rs 12500

Total cost of TV after transport and installation = 12500 + 800 + 150 = 13450. To earn 15% profit, he must sell at 13450 × 115/100

= Rs 15467.50.

143. (b) Interest earned in 1st half of a year

= 20,000 × 10/100 = 2000

Similarly, during second half, interest earned = 2200

During second year, interest earned = 4840 (*Note*: Interest is calculated as compound)

144. (a) Required no. of ways

= 2P2 × 4P4 = 48

145. (d) Required no. of ways

= 3C1 × 5C1 = !! × !!! = 30

146. (a) Let work done by 1 man in 1 day

= 2x

work done by 1 woman in 1 day = x

8 men and 4 women together can complete a piece of work in 6 days

Work done by 8 men and 4 women in 1 day = 1/6

=> 8 × 2x + 4x = 1/6

=> 20x = 1/6

=> x = 1/120

8 men and 4 women worked for 2 days. Work completed = 1/6 × 2 = 1/3

Pending work = 1−1/3 = 2/3

Then 4 men left and 4 new women joined them

*i.e.*, 4 men and 8 women worked and completed the work. Work done by 4 men and 8 women in 1 day = 4 × 2x + 8 × x

= 16x = 16/120 = 2/15

Required number of days

= (2/3) / (2/15) = 5 days

147. (b) Let the total monthly income be Rs x. After spending 50% remaining is Rs x/2, After spending (50% + 25% + 10%) of x/2, Remaining is

x/2 – (x/2 × 85%) = 900 (given)

x/2 – 85/200x = 900 (given)

x = 12000.

148. (c) Let the sum of money be x

*B*’ share = 4/26x. *C’s *share = 9/26x

*C*’s share – *B*’ share = 2580

i.e. 9/26x – 4/26x = 2580 x = 516

Therefor, A’s share = 516 × 3 = 1548

D’s share = 516 × 10 = 5160

A + D = 1548 + 5160 = 6708

149. (d) The multiplier for a 20% increase is 1.20, for 25% increase is 1.25

Let n = the original numerator

Let d = the denominator

1.2n = 3 n = 3/1.2

n = 2.5 and 1.25d = 5

d = 5/1.25 d = 4

2.5/4 but the numerator has to be an integer, mult by 2/2

2.5/4 × 2/2 = 5/8 is the original fraction

150. (d) Total amount after three years = 25500 + 8440.50 = Rs. 33940.50

Thus

[(100 + r) / 100] ^3

= 33940.50/25500 = 1.331

Thus, r = 10%

So the simple interest will be

[25500 × 3 × 10) / 100] = Rs 7650

*Note: *For this type of question we need to apply our common sense. We can see that 8440.50 is more than 30% of 25500. This implies that the rate of interest may be 10% (for one year). Now check whether this is true or not. At 10% rate of compound interest for 3 years the equivalent simple rate of interest is 33.1%, so 33.1% of 25500 should be equal to 8440.50. And this is true. So our conclusion is correct.
