9261, 485, 12167, 576, 15625, 676

(21)^3=9261

(22)^2 = 484

(23)^3=12167

(24)^2=576

(25)^3=15625

124*2+2=250

250*3+3=753

753*4+4=3016

3016*5+5=15085

12.35,37.05,111.15,333.45,1002.35

12.35*3=37.05

37.05*3=111.15

2500,1971,1610,1321,1152,1100

2500-(23)^2= 1971

1971-(19)^2 = 1610

1610-(17)^2=1321

1321-(13)^2=1152

1152-(11)^2= 1031 - Suraj bought an article in Rs.62000 and sold it at 25% loss. From this amount she bought another article and sold it at 30% profit. What is his total profit/loss?
Rs.100 profitRs.1550 lossRs.1500 profitRs.1550 ProfitNone of theseOption B

SP = 62000*(75/100)*(130/100) = Rs.60450

Loss = 62000-60450 = Rs.1550 loss - The cost of a table and chair in the ratio 5:7. If the cost of table and chair is increased by 10% and 20% respectively, then what will be the new ratio resp.?
55:5347:3351:3255:84None of theseOption D

Required new ratio = (5*110)/(7*120) = 55:84 - A,B and C invested some amount in a business. A received (1/10) of the profit and remaining is divided between B and C in the ratio of 1.25:1. If the difference between the shares of C and A is Rs. 8340, What is B’s share?
Rs.13,500Rs.15,400Rs.13,900Rs.15,000Rs.20,000Option C

Let profit be 100x.

A got = 10x

B:C = 1.25:1 =5:4

=50x:40x

Now, 40x-10x = 8340

=> x = 278

50x = Rs.13900 - The length of a rectangular floor is twice of its breadth. If Rs.256 is required to paint the floor at the rate of Rs.2 per square metres, then what would be the length of floor?
20 m16 m10 m18 m25 mOption B

Area = 256/2 = 128m^2

2b*b = 128

=> b = 8

Length = 16m - In respect of a bill of Rs.40,000 what is the difference between a discount of 36% and two successive discounts of 25% and 12% ?
3%1%5%2%6%Option D

First discount = 36%

Second discount = 25+12 – (25*12)/100 = 34%

Required difference = 36%-34% =2%
