**Q8. Average of four numbers is 26. Sum of the smallest and the largest number is 55. If difference between other two numbers is one then find the square of second smallest number.**

576

625

529

484

676

Solution:

Let four numbers in increasing order is a, b, c & d

ATQ,

a + b + c + d = 4 x 26= 104

a +d = 55

⇒ b + c = 49

c – b = 1

b = 24, c= 25

b² = 576

ATQ,

a + b + c + d = 4 x 26= 104

a +d = 55

⇒ b + c = 49

c – b = 1

b = 24, c= 25

b² = 576

**Q9. Mixture containing milk and water in ratio of 2 : 3 has volume of 30 liters. If 10 L of water is added to it then find the ratio of milk to water in the mixture?**

7 : 9

3 : 7

2 : 3

5 : 7

**Q10. Shopkeeper buys 3 articles for Rs 2100 (CP of each article is same). If he made overall profit of 20% on selling all the three articles then find the profit obtained on selling one article.**

Rs 140

Rs 170

Rs 280

Rs 70

Rs 105

**Directions (11-15): In each of these questions, two equations numbered I and II are given. You have to solve both the equation and give answer**

**Q11. I. 2x² + 11x + 15 = 0**

**II. 4y**

**²**

**+ 13y + 9 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

if x > y

if x ≥ y

if x = y or the relationship cannot be established

**Q12. I. x**

**²**

**- 36x + 324 = 0**

**II. y**

**²**

**- 35y + 216 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

if x > y

if x ≥ y

if x = y or the relationship cannot be established

**Q13.**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

if x > y

if x ≥ y

if x = y or the relationship cannot be established

**Q14. I. 2x² + 17x + 35 = 0**

**II. 3y² + 17y + 24 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

if x > y

if x ≥ y

if x = y or the relationship cannot be established

**Q15. I. x² + 72 = 108**

**II. y³ + 581 = 365**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

if x > y

if x ≥ y

if x = y or the relationship cannot be established

Solution:

I. x² + 72 = 108

x² = 108 – 72 = 36

x = ±6

II. y³ + 581 = 365

y³ = –216

y = –6

x ≥ y

x² = 108 – 72 = 36

x = ±6

II. y³ + 581 = 365

y³ = –216

y = –6

x ≥ y
