11) if the sum of \begin{aligned} \frac{1}{2} \end{aligned} and \begin{aligned} \frac{1}{5} \end{aligned} of a number exceeds \begin{aligned} \frac{1}{3} \end{aligned} of the number by \begin{aligned} 7\frac {1}{3} \end{aligned}, then number

  • 1) 15
  • 2) 20
  • 3) 25
  • 4) 30
View Answer View Explanation
Ans.   B
Explanation :
Seems a bit complicated, isnt'it, but trust me if we think on this question with a cool mind then it is quite simple... Let the number is x, then, \begin{aligned} (\frac{1}{2}x + \frac{1}{5}x) - \frac{1}{3}x = \frac{22}{3} \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} => \frac{11x}{30} = \frac{22}{3} \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} => x = 20 \end{aligned}

12) find the number, If 50 is subtracted from two-third of number, the result is equal to sum of 40 and one-fourth of that numbe

  • 1) 214
  • 2) 216
  • 3) 114
  • 4) 116
View Answer View Explanation
Ans.   B
Explanation :
Let the number is x, \begin{aligned} => \frac{2}{3}x-50 = \frac{1}{4}x + 40 \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} <=> \frac{2}{3}x-\frac{1}{4}x = 90 \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} <=> \frac{5x}{12} = 90 \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} <=> x = 216 \end{aligned}

13) Product of two natural numbers is 17. Then, the sum of reciprocals of their squares

  • 1) \begin{aligned} \frac{290}{289} \end{aligned}
  • 2) \begin{aligned} \frac{1}{289} \end{aligned}
  • 3) \begin{aligned} \frac{290}{90} \end{aligned}
  • 4) \begin{aligned} \frac{290}{19} \end{aligned}
View Answer View Explanation
Ans.   A
Explanation :
If the numbers are a, b, then ab = 17, as 17 is a prime number, so a = 1, b = 17. \begin{aligned} \frac{1}{a^2} + \frac{1}{b^2} = \frac{1}{1^2} + \frac{1}{17^2} \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} = \frac{290}{289} \end{aligned}

14) Sum of three numbers 264, If the first number be twice then second and third number be one third of the first, then the second number

  • 1) 70
  • 2) 71
  • 3) 72
  • 4) 73
View Answer View Explanation
Ans.   C
Explanation :
Let the second number is x, then first is 2x, and third is 1/3(2x) \begin{aligned} =>2x + x + \frac{2x}{3} = 264 <=> \frac{11x}{3} = 264 \end{aligned} \begin{aligned} => x = 72 \end{aligned}
