MATHEMATICS1. The sum of 15% of a positive number and 20% of the same number is 126.What is one-third of that number?
A. 360
B. 1080
c. 120
D. 40
E. None of these
ANSWER: C
EXPLANATION
Let the number = x
According to the question
(15/100) x x + (20/100) = 126
(35/100) x x = 126
35 360
We want to find out x/3 x/3 = 360/3 = 120
So answer is 120.
2. If 70% of a no. is subtracted from itself it reduces to 81.what is two fifth of that no.?
A. 88
B. 91
c. 108
D. 116
E. None of these
ANSWER: C
EXPLANATION
Let the number be m.
Then m -70 0/0 of m = 81
— m – 70/100 m = 81
* m – 0.7m = 81
0.3m = 81
= 81/0.3
270
Now, we need to find 2m/5
= 2 x 270 / 5
= 2 x 54
= 108
3. What will come in place of question mark in the following equation?
– 1936248 = 1635773
A. 3572021
B. 3572031
c. 3572028
D. 3572061
E. None of these
ANSWER: A
EXPLANATION
Given, ? – 1936248 = 1635773
= 1936248 + 1635773
= 3572021
4. Evaluate :
986 237 + 986 863
A. 104600
B. 1084800
c. 986000
D. 986860
E. None of these
ANSWER: A
EXPLANATION
We are given 986 x 237 + 986 x 863
Hence taking 986 common We have 986 (237 + 863)
= 986 1100
= 1084600
5. A two digit number is 4 times to its sum of digits, when 9 is added to the number, the digits will get reversed. Then what is that number?
A. 21
B. 12
c. 36
D. 42
E. None of these
ANSWER: B
EXPLANATION
Let the number = yx
So, unit place digit of two digit number = x 10th place digit of two digit number = y
So number formed by these digits = 10y + x
By reversing digits we get a number = 10x + y
According to the question
IOy + x + 9 = + y
By put and trial method we get x = 2, y = 1
So the number is = (10 x 1) 12
And given condition two digit number is 4 times to its sum of digits
12 = 4 x (1+2) = 12 satisfied
