x>= y - In a class, the average age of student is 8 years, and average age of 16 teachers is 28 years. If the average age of the combined group of all the teachers and students is 10, then find the number of students.

Let the number of students be x

=>10 = [8x + 16*28]/ [x+16] => x = 144 - The perimeter of a rectangle, whose length is 8 m more than its breadth, is 92 m. What would be the area of a triangle whose base is equal to the half of the diagonal of the rectangle and whose height is equal to the length of the rectangle?(Answer is in approximate value)
223 sq. m200 sq.. m150 sq. m198 sq. m188 sq. mOption A

2 (b + 8 + b) = 92

=> 2 (2b + 8) = 92

=> b = 19m and l = 19 + 8 = 27 m

Diagonal of the rectangle = [(27)^{2}+ (19)^{2}]^{1/2}= 33 (approx.)

Area of the triangle = Â½*33/2*27 = 223 sq.m - In a container, there is 480 ltr of pure milk from which 24 ltr of milk is replaced with 24 ltr of water, again 24 ltr milk is replaced by same amount of water, as this process is done once more. Now, what is the amount of pure milk?
405.5 litre355 litre411.54 litre333.20 litre412.11 litreOption C

Amount of pure milk = a [ 1 â€“ b/a]^3

Where, a = pure milk in starting

b = amount replaced

= 480 [1- 24/480]^3

= 480[1 â€“ 1/20]^3

= 480 * 19/20 * 19/20 * 19/20

= 411.54 litre - A trader marks his goods at such a price that after allowing a discount of 18%, he makes a profit of 28%. What is the marked price of an article whose cost price is Rs.1804?
Rs.2055Rs.2816Rs.2060Rs.3500Rs.2007Option B

CP : SP : MP = 100 : 128 : 128(100/82)

The marked price of an article = 128*1804/82 = Rs.2816 - A bag contains 3 white balls and 2 black balls. Another bag contains 2 white and 4 black balls. A bag and a ball are picked random. Find the probability that the ball will be white.
3/711/159/146/137/15Option E

The probability of selecting one bag =1/2

Now, probability of getting a white ball from bag A =1/2Ã—3/5=3/10

and probability of getting a white ball from bag B =1/2Ã—2/6=1/6

Hence, Probability that white ball is drawn either first or second bag =3/10+1/6

=7/15
