Explanation: Explanation: Explanation: 2524.79 × 29.92 + 495.26 = 76037 or 76000 approx

Explanation: (8736 - 4454 - 2613) + 1311 = ?
1669 + 1311 = 2980

Explanation: (42.13)2 + (23.96) 2 - (17.11)2
1775 + 574 – 293 = 2056

Explanation: 110   111   103   130   66 ?
+13   –23   +33   –43   +53
Hence, question mark (?) will be replaced by 191.

Explanation: 64 128 92 156 148 212 ?
See the bold part. It makes a series as follows:
64   92   148   ?
+28 +56 +112
Hence, ? will be replaced by 260.

Explanation: Here the series consists of two series S1 and S2: S2:   14    15     16
+1   +1
The next term will be 17.

Explanation: Here the series is:
5 × 1 + 12 = 6;
6 × 2 + 22 = 16;
16 × 3 + 32 = 57;
57 × 4 + 42 = 244;
244 × 5 + 52 = 1245;
1245 × 6 + 62 = 7506

Explanation: Here the series is: 3 × 8 – 7 = 17
17 × 7 – 6 = 113
113 × 6 – 5 = 673
673 × 5 – 4 = 3361
3361 × 4 – 3 = 13441
13441 × 3 – 2 = 40321

Explanation: Let √x = a
56a2 - 99a + 35 = 0
56a2 - 49a - 40a + 35 = 0
7a(8a - 7) - 5(8a - 7) = 0
a = 7/8, 5/7
x = 49/64, 25/49
Let √y = b
32b2 - 52b + 21 = 0
32b2 - 28b - 24b + 21 = 0
4b(8b - 7) - 3(8b - 7) = 0
b = 3/4, 7/8
y = 9/16, 49/64
Hence, x≤y

Explanation: x2 - 5√3x + 35√21 - 7√7x = 0
x(x - 5√3) - 7√7(x - 5√3) = 0
x=7√7, 5√3
y2 - 5√5y + 30 = 0
y2 - 2√5y - 3√5y + 30 = 0
y(y - 2√5) - 3√5(y - 2√5) = 0
y = 3√5, 2√5
Hence, x > y
Explanation: 16x2 + 14x - 15 = 0
16x2 + 24x - 10x - 15 = 0
8x(2x + 3) - 5(2x + 3) = 0
x = 5/8, - 3/2
20y2 - 31y + 12 = 0
20y2 - 15y - 16y + 12 = 0
5y(4y - 3) - 4(4y - 3) = 0
y = 4/5, 3/4
Hence, x < y

Explanation: 6x + 5y = 61 …….(i)
5x - 6y = 60 …….(ii)
Multiplying equation (i) and (ii) with 5 and 6 respectively, we get
30x + 25y = 305
30x - 36y = 360
Solving both the equations, we get
y = - 55/61, x = 666/61
Hence, x > y

Explanation: Explanation:
Percentage of liquid B initially present in the jar= 2×100/5= 40 %
Percentage of liquid B finally present in the jar= 4×100/5=80%
let us liquid B initially present in the jar as the first solution in which the percentage of liquid B is 40% The second solution is liquid B which is being mixed and it has 100 % liquid B.
So, 80 % of the liquid B present in the resultant mixture may be taken as average percentage.
Using rule of allegation on liquid B present we can write Or, the ratio of liquid left in the jar to liquid B being mixed =1:2
Since the quantity if liquid B being mixed is 20 litres. The quantity of liquid left in the jar is 10 litres.
Therefore, the total quantity of liquid initially present in the vessel=10+20=30 litres quantity of liquid A=3/(2+3)=18 litres.

Explanation: Let CP = 100
So, MP = 150
SP = 120
Discount = 150 – 20 = 30
Discount % = 20%

Explanation: Let the students passed be 7x and failed be 4x.
(7x + 8) / (4x - 8) = 9/2
X = 4
Number of students failed = 4x = 4 × 4 = 16

Explanation: Let the speed of the train be x km/hr and that of the car be y km/hr.
Then, 240/x + 960/y = 16 .... (i)
And, 400/x + 800/y = 50/3 .... (ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), we get: x = 60 and y = 80.
Ratio of speeds = 3 : 4.

Explanation: Speed of the train = (72 × 5/18) m/sec = 20 m/sec
Distance moved in passing the pole = 180m
Required time taken = (180/20) sec = 9 sec

Explanation: In 20 hours, one project is completed by X and in the same time, Y + Z will complete 2.5 project and X + Y + Z will complete 3.5 projects in 20 hours.
Thus, to complete 28 projects, 160 hours are needed.

Explanation: Amount = P (1 + r1/100)(1 + r2/100)(1 + r3/100)
= 12,500(1 + 3/100)(1 + 4/100)(1 + 5/100)
= Rs.14,059.50

Explanation: Explanation: Ratio of A,B and C.
A: B: C = (50000 × 12 + 70000 × 12 + 70000 × 12) : (70000 × 12 + 90000 × 12) : (70000 × 12)
= 2280000: 1920000: 840000 =19: 16: 7
A’s share = Rs. (2,10,000 × 19/42) = Rs. 95,000

Explanation: Net part filled by both pipes A and B together in 1 hour
=1/20 + 1/30 = (30+20) / 600 = 1/12
Hence the time taken to fill the tank = 12 hours

Explanation: Number of Marketing students in Institute A = 32500
Number of Finance students in Institute D = 37500
The ratio= 32500:37500 =13:15

Explanation: Total number of students in Institute D in all three faculties = 22500 + 35000 + 37500 = 95000
The average student in each faculty = 95000/3 = 31667

Explanation: The number of IT students in all the Institutes = 27500 + 30000 + 22500 + 22500 = 102500
The average IT students in each Institute = 102500/4 = 25625

Explanation: The total number of IT students in Institute C = 22500
Total number of students in Institute C = 80000
Percentage of IT students = 22500/80000 × 100 = 28.13%

Explanation: Total number of Finance students in all the Institutes = 127500
Total number of IT students in all the Institutes = 102500
Their difference = 127500 - 102500 = 25000

Explanation: Percentage of Indian IT Professionals working either in Australia or New Zealand is 14% + 12% = 26%
