Answer & Explanation








V=Pie r^2h




Let M.P=100







Let time taken by B =t

so time taken by A=t+2

when speed of A is double then time taken by A=(t+2)/2

so,(t+2)/2= t-1

t=4 hr





Numbers of sweets got by students = 45*9=405

Numbers of sweets got by teachers = 8*18=144

Recquired Sweets=405+144=549


8.c Let numbers of students in A and B are x and y






From above Eq.




Speed of train=880/16*70/100=38.5



13 A

10 B

Total work=13*23

Recquired time=13*23/23=13 days



Let B has done the work in x days


A=3/2x days


x=30 days
