Q10. I. (x)^2=961             II. y=√961

Answer & Explanation

1.(3); Required number of sweets=((112-32)×6)/32=(80×6)/32=15


2.(3); Breadth of carpet=3 m
∴ Length of carpet=3×1.44=4.32
∴ Area of carpet=3×4.32=12.96 m^2
New length=4.32×140/100=6.048 m
New breadth=3×125/100=3.75 cm
New area=6.048×3.75=22.68 m^2
Increased area=22.68-12.96=9.72 m^2
∴ Required increased cost=9.72×45=Rs.437.40/-


3.(5); Water in 60 gm mixture=60×75/100=45 gm
Again, water in (60+15) gm mixture=45+15=60 gm
∴ Required percentage=60/75×100=80%


4.(1); Required compound interest=20000[(1+15/100)^4-1]=Rs.14,980.125/-


5.(4); Actual average weight=(53×58-65+45)/53=57.62 kg


I. x^2+x-20=0
II. y^2-y-30=0
∴ No relation


I. 225x^2-4=0
II. √225 y+2=0


I. 4/√x+7/√x=√x
II. y^2-(11)^(5/2)/√y=0


I. x^2-10x+24=0
x=4 or x=6
II. y^2-9y+20=0
y=4 or y=5
No Relation

I. x^2=961
II. y=√961
So, x=y
