yes we ll make that also

thanku mam :))

Thankyou so much ðŸ™‚

total work 180 units kaise aaya

LCM taken of no. of days taken by all

ok….thanx mam

mam mera total work unit 360 aa rha hai

yaa u can take that

hi batman sir,…..:))

Q6

pulkit-9days

paras-9days

neha-24

ruhi-9

happy-24

ma’am 180 not 72?

yess i have taken 180 ..72 is where ???

lcm of 9,9,24,9,24 = 72?

is the number of days taken by me are correct?

yes yes its correct but u didn’t consider all the 12 people

okkk…its a single wrk completed by all of them. i took it as individual no. of days taken by all of them to do work individually..

ohkk

thank you ma’am ðŸ™‚

yes it is single work .

yup..i interpreted it wrong

it happens sometime Dear .:

ðŸ™‚

ohkk but 72 can’t be taken for 15 na …i have taken 180 for all including boys and girls

15?

15 for ashu and 15 for hema too …72 can’t fit here na so 180 taken

u can take any number u want

it is correct dear ..where you get problem

got it knw..i understood ques wrong

yup this is where i gt stuck..wen 4 persons are working we take lcm of those 4 only why here everyone’s work in being taken into account?

but mod says its a single work done by all of them and the number of days is indicative of days individual person worked for those many days on the same work…not the individual person takes days to complete the whole work.

no but if u take LCM of these 5 people as 72 then too the answer will come as 1/6

it won’t make any difference …it is my method of doing ques ..if u feel comfortable doing traditional method u can go for that too

yes right :))

hope it helps everyone nw ðŸ™‚

yess i ll keep in mind to give a more elucidated solution next time ðŸ™‚

@Alice thankyou dear

in 2 DI .first qo ,you should place an extra info ,qo looks more appropriate

If pulkit and paras started to work and after 2 days they were replaced by neha, ruhi and happy they were work for 2 days then they too stopped , how much work is still left ?

yess it is like that only..typo

i know .the sense by which you made this qo but seems it looks improper,many are stuck on that point

yes ðŸ™‚

no prblm ðŸ™‚

true

yes it is edited now.. refresh the page once

Yup :

i got the same doubt

u can take any LCM u want but answer will remain always the same

heeeheee…:)

ðŸ™‚ how is that possible ??

??????

see above

problm????

if in question 1st ,if it is only asking about the 4 people pulkit paras neha ruhi happy

then in that case there is no need to find out the lcm of whole , right?

but problem is , answer is not coming same from both the cases, which is supposed to be same , isn’t?

6th que??

hmm

qo is correct .

yes it is but i think they r not getting the method ..

1/6 ans is comming?? whers the pblm

what rearrangement ???

make work equal if not getting i think thats only otherwise its correct…..:))

——————–

ohkk…but still answer will be same na

efficiency = 100/no. of days

yesss off course for better undestanding i meant to say i did it that way only now when i saw the comment then i checked the soln posted in that heheheheh….:)))

:))

yup..its same..perfectly fine ðŸ™‚

now everything clear ???

yes ma’am ðŸ™‚

it ws already wen u explained last time..i took it wrong

no pblm ðŸ™‚

keep learning ðŸ™‚

explain ur solution i ll check that

answer is coming

by LCM approach .without knowing the whole work how could you find out the their efficiency of per day,so it is necesry

it means he has to complete whole work in the specified time only

he did 45 in 5 days but he was supposed to do 60 units so to compensate this 15 units’s deviation he will have to work more in next days to complete the work in time.

so remaining work = 135 and time 10 days so he should do 135/10 = 13.5 units per day now

and change is 13.5 – 12 = 1.5 and % = 1.5/12 *100 = 12.5

What is the total revenue generated if all the items produced in February are sold (assume MP to be SP here) ?

A) 945000

B) 994000

C) 995400

D) 954000

View Answer

Option D

Solution :

revenue from pencils = 40*3 = 120

revenue from erasers = 35*2.4 = 84

revenue from markers = 70*9 = 630

revenue from scales = 35* 2 = 70

revenue from sharpeners= 30*1.5 = 45

TOTAL=949 INSTEAD OF total = 954

RE-CHECK QO NO 5/

949 ans aa rha hai mera

YES ,You are Rite then,. correct Option is not there…

next di mae total work unit aapka kya aa rha hai?

yes you can take 180 or 360 .both are correct here ,we take such value which is minimum possible value of that given no.

ok wait i ll check

yes my mistake ..we ll edit thankyou

Anytym >Miss

@@imvendetta:disqus Hey , i didn’t get the question number 10th’s answer from second last line

would you like to explain dear?

so remaining work = 135 units so complete it in 10 days he should do 135/10 = 13.5 units per day

therefore increased efficiency â€¦ 13.5 â€“ 12 = 1.5 >> 1.5*100/12 = 12.5%

Didn’t get this?

sure .let me explain

Ashu started working alone at his normal efficiency but after 5 days of starting he found that he has done only 25% work so to complete the remaining work on time by how much percentage he should increase his efficiency?

A) 12.5%

B) 15%

C) 10%

D) 20%

Ashuâ€™s 1 dayâ€™s work â€¦360/15 = 24 units

In 5 days he should have done=120 units

but he did 180/4 = 90 units

so remaining work = 270 units he has to complete it in 10 days

he should do 270/10 = 27 units per day

therefore increased efficiency â€¦27-24 ==3==3*100/24 = 12.5%

@@imvendetta:disqus Thankyou so much bro ðŸ™‚

i think you were stuckd in decimal values.sometimes it complicates values that y i took 360

you got it right buddy

thanks again:)

Qo no=6

Let total work=LCM of All members=360

Pulkit 1 Day work=360/9=40

Paras 1 day work=360/9=40

2 day they work togeather=(40+40)*2=160

Neha 1 day work=360/24=15

Ruhi 1 day work=360/9=40

happy 1 day work=360/24=15

N+R+H worked for 2 days ,=(15+40+15)=70*2=140

total work completed by them=160+140=300

left work=60/360=1/6

how do you get lcm 360 explanation please

9……10………12…….15…….20……..24.. are the number of days taken by all

360 is assumed total work which is LCM of all these figures.

ty

anyone tell me 7?

yess

how 100?

how 45?

yes just 5 mint plz

see i have taken the total work to be 180 units

so to get one day’s work we ll divide no. of days taken by a person by 180

so one day’s work of punit will be …..180/12 = 15 units

similarly we ll get …ashu’s 1 day’s work .. 12 units …………nikku’s work………..18 units

paras’s 1 day’s work ……………….20 units…..pulkit too ….20 units and …pradeep …15 units

adding all we get …20+20+15+15+12+18 we get 100

similarly for girls we ll get 45

ty got it my mistake

BOYS-12……15……10…9….12…..9

………………………..180……………

…………15…….12….18…20..15….20

15+12+18+20+15+20=100

180/100=9/5

GIRL-10…..15…..24……24

…………………120………

……..12………8…….3…….3

12+8+3+3=30

120/30=4

LESS=4-9/5=11/5

5/9-7/18==3/18=1/6

qs 10

complete it in 10 days ??

yes jo normal time wo le rha hai usme hi complete karna hai

5 days me 60 karna tha na but hua kitna – 45 to remaining 10 days me wo 135 krega (180-45 ) = 135

abhi bhi ni aaya 10 days ?

normal time kita leta wo 15 days na

first 5 days me usne total work (180) ka 25 % kiya means 45

left work = 135 and days left = 10 days (15-5 )

in ques 1st why we not take total cp = 56×2000 ??

we ll have to take cost of defected products too…. only then we ll able to get real profit

ok thank u

Bcoz ,we need the total cp there..not only the one which are eligible for sale

que 4 xplain pls

production in June and production in April difference ( in rupees )

If in July production of markers increases by 20% , scales by 15% and sharpeners by 12% over the previous month , then What is the total production of all the three products in july ?

A) 115950

B) 114950

C) 119450

D) 115490

View Answer

Option B

Solution :

In june markers produced = 20000 ..increase in july â€“ 20% i.e 4000

scales produced in june = 45000 â€¦increase in july â€“ 15% i.e 6750

sharpeners in june = 35000â€¦â€¦.increase in july -12% i.e 4200

total in june ..1,00,000 â€¦.increase in july â€¦â€¦..14950 >> increased production = 114950

bro isme 20000*120/100 kiu ni hua….cz increase hua h na?

pura Question bathoo

DI k question without diagram k smj m nhi aate

@@disqus_sqmL5JaJJZ:disqus how you can assume total work is 180 units…any idea behind?

u can assume any figure u feel easy doing calculations with

I have taken a common multiple of all the values given

Mam in que 10 .. where it is given that work should be completed in 10 days..

see it is given that

the work is to be done in the prefixed time that is 15 days

he has worked for 5 days already and completed 25% work

so in the remaining 10 days he have to do remaining 75% work

Okk ty mam?

pls post daily ambi…cz DI mein bhut work krna h…so for alll…pls do post on regular basis.. nd take each topic…pls…mah request

yes sure ðŸ™‚
