Rs. 16000

Rs. 28000

Rs. 20000

Rs. 24500

Solution:

Ratio of Investment of A and B = 3: 1

And ratio of time taken by A and B = 2: 1

So, ratio of profit of A and B = 3 × 2:1 × 1= 6:1

1----------Rs 4000

So, total profit =7---------7×4000=Rs.28000

And ratio of time taken by A and B = 2: 1

So, ratio of profit of A and B = 3 × 2:1 × 1= 6:1

1----------Rs 4000

So, total profit =7---------7×4000=Rs.28000

Rs. 5400

Rs. 3600

Rs. 2700

Rs. 1800

Rs. 2400

Solution:

Let the common multiple be ‘x

Now, 5x – x = 3600

∴ 4x = 3600 ⇒ x = 900

A’s share = 3x = 3 × 900 = 2700

B’s share = x = 900

A’s share + B’s share

= 2700 + 900 = 3600

Now, 5x – x = 3600

∴ 4x = 3600 ⇒ x = 900

A’s share = 3x = 3 × 900 = 2700

B’s share = x = 900

A’s share + B’s share

= 2700 + 900 = 3600

**Q13. A certain number is divided into two parts such that 5 times of the first part added to 11 time of the second part makes 7 time of the whole. The ratio of the first part to second part is:**

2 : 1

5 : 11

7 : 5

2 : 3

3 : 5

Solution:

Lest first and second part of the number be x and y, respectively. Then,

5x + 11y = 7(x+y)

⇒ 11y –7y = 7x – 5x

⇒ 4y = 2x

∴ x : y = 2 : 1

5x + 11y = 7(x+y)

⇒ 11y –7y = 7x – 5x

⇒ 4y = 2x

∴ x : y = 2 : 1

**Q14. Twenty years ago the ratio between the ages of Sikha and Swati was 1 : 4 and at present it is 1 : 2. What is the age of Sikha at present?**

2 : 3

1 : 2

4 : 3

3 : 4

3 : 5

Solution:

Sudhir’s present age = 2x years

Pranav’s present age = 3x years

∴ 3x – 2x = 6 ⇒ x = 6

∴ Required ratio = (2 × 6 + 6) : (3 × 6 + 6)

= 18 : 24 = 3 : 4

Pranav’s present age = 3x years

∴ 3x – 2x = 6 ⇒ x = 6

∴ Required ratio = (2 × 6 + 6) : (3 × 6 + 6)

= 18 : 24 = 3 : 4
