Answer & Explanation

1. Given Ratio = 7/2 : 4/3 : 6/5 = 105 : 40 : 36

Let Initial investment in Rs. 105, Rs. 40 & Rs. 36

Ratio of investments

= [105 * 4 + (150% of 105) *8]: (40 * 12) : 36 * 12

= 1680 : 480 : 432 = 35 : 10 : 9

B’s share = 21600 * 10/54 = Rs. 4000.


2. Let the capital s of A, B,& C are 3x,5x and 9x

& Ratio of timing of their investment = 2 : 3 : 1

Let they invest their capital for 2y , 3y and y months respectively

Then their profit ratios are –

3x * 2y : 5x * 3y : 9x * y

= 6 : 15 : 9 = 2 : 5 :  3


3. From question-

7 + K : 16 + K :: 43 + K : 79 + K

(7 + K)/(16 + K) = (43 + K)/(79 + K) : K = 5


4. Let Income be 3x & 2x

& Expenditures be 5y and 3y

Then : 3x – 5y = 1000; 2x- 3y = 1000

X= 2000 & y = 1000

So, A’s Income = 3x = Rs. 6000


5. Equivalent discount in Two successive discount is

= [20 + 20 – (20 * 20)/100] = 36%

Difference = 36% – 35% = 22 Rs. : Amount of bill = 2200


6. Let the third no.be 100

First no. = 7 & Second no. = 28

Hence, Required Percentage = (7/28) * 100 = 25%
