Exercise 12(B)

**1. If x, y and z are in continued proportion, then which of the following is true:**

**(i) x: y = x: z**

**(ii) x: x = z: y**

**(iii) x: y = y: z**

**(iv) y: x = y: z**

**Solution:**

Here option (iii) is in continued proportion i.e. x: y = y: z

**2. Which of the following numbers are in continued proportion:**

**(i) 3, 6 and 15**

**(ii) 15, 45 and 48**

**(iii) 6, 12 and 24**

**(iv) 12, 18 and 27**

**Solution:**

Here options (iii) and (iv) are in continued proportion

(iii) 6 / 12 = 12 / 24

1 / 2 = 1 / 2

(iv) 12 / 18 = 18 / 27

2 / 3 = 2 / 3

Therefore (iii) and (iv) are in continued proportion

**3. Find the mean proportion between **

**(i) 3 and 27**

**(ii) 0.06 and 0.96**

**Solution:**

(i) 3 and 27

The mean proportion between 3 and 27 can be calculated as below

Mean proportion =** âˆš**Â 3 Ã— 27

= **âˆš**Â 81

= 9

Therefore mean proportion between 3 and 27 is 9

(ii) 0.06 and 0.96

The mean proportion between 0.06 and 0.96 can be calculated as below

Mean proportion = **âˆš**Â 0.06 Ã— 0.96

= **âˆš**.0576

= 0.24

Therefore the mean proportion between 0.06 and 0.96 is 0.24

**4. Find the third proportional to:**

**(i) 36, 18**

**(ii) 5.25, 7**

**(iii) Rs 1. 60, Rs 0.40**

**Solution:**

(i) 36, 18

Let the required third proportional be x

Hence, 36, 18, x are in continued proportion

â‡’Â 36: 18 = 18: x

â‡’Â 36x = 18 Ã— 18

â‡’Â x = (18 Ã— 18) / 36

â‡’Â x = 324 / 36

â‡’Â x = 9

Therefore the required third proportional is 9

(ii) 5.25, 7

Let the required third proportional be x

Hence 5.25, 7, x are in continued proportion

â‡’Â 5.25: 7 = 7: x

â‡’Â 5.25x = 7 Ã— 7

â‡’Â x = (7 Ã— 7) / 5.25

â‡’Â x = 49 / 5.25

â‡’Â x = 28 / 3

â‡’Â x =

Therefore the required third proportional is

(iii) Rs 1.60, Rs 0.40

Let the required third proportional be x

Hence Rs 1.60, 0.40, x are in continued proportion

â‡’Â 1.60: 0.40 = 0.40: x

â‡’Â 1.60 Ã— x = 0.40 Ã— 0.40

â‡’Â x = (0.40 Ã— 0.40) / 1.60

â‡’Â x = 0.1

Therefore required third proportional is 0.1

**5. The ratio between 7 and 5 is same as the ratio between Rs x and Rs 20.50; find the value of x**

**Solution:**

Given

Ratio between 7 and 5 is same as the ratio between Rs x and Rs 20.50

Hence, the value of x can be calculated as below

7: 5 = x: 20.50

5x = 7 Ã— 20.50

x = (7 Ã— 20.50) / 5

x = (143.5) / 5

x = 28.7

Therefore the value of x is 28.7

**6. If (4x + 3y): (3x + 5y) = 6: 7, find:**

**(i) x: y**

**(ii) x, if y = 10**

**(iii) y, if x = 27**

**Solution:**

(i) x: y

Given

(4x + 3y): (3x + 5y) = 6: 7

We can calculate x: y as below

7(4x + 3y) = 6(3x + 5y)

28x + 21y = 18x + 30y

28x â€“ 18x = 30y â€“ 21y

10x = 9y

x / y = 9 / 10

Therefore x: y is 9: 10

(ii) x, if y = 10

Given

(4x + 3y): (3x + 5y) = 6: 7

And y = 10

Hence we can calculate x as below

7(4x + 3 Ã— 10) = 6(3x + 5 Ã— 10)

7(4x + 30) = 6(3x + 50)

28x + 210 = 18x + 300

28x â€“ 18x = 300 â€“ 210

10x = 90

x = 90 / 10

x = 9

Therefore the value of x is 9

(iii) y, if x = 27

Given

(4x + 3y): (3x + 5y) = 6: 7

And x = 27

We can calculate x as below

7(4 Ã— 27 + 3y) = 6(3 Ã— 27 + 5y)

7(108 + 21y) = 6(81 + 5y)

756 + 21y = 486 + 30y

9y = 756 â€“ 486

9y = 270

y = 270 / 9

y = 30

Therefore the value of y is 30

**7. If (2y + 5x) / (3y â€“ 5x) = , find:**

**(i) x: y**

**(ii) x, if y = 70**

**(iii) y, if x = 33**

**Solution:**

(i) x: y

Given

(2y + 5x) / (3y â€“ 5x) =

Hence x: y can be calculated as below

(2y + 5x) / (3y â€“ 5x) =

We get

(2y + 5x) / (3y â€“ 5x) = 5 / 2

2 [(2y + 5x)] = 5[(3y â€“ 5x)]

4y + 10x = 15y â€“ 25x

25x + 10x = 15y â€“ 4y

35x = 11y

x / y = 11 / 35

x: y = 11: 35

Therefore x: y is 11: 35

(ii) x, if y = 70

Given

(2y + 5x) / (3y â€“ 5x) =

And y = 70

Hence x can be calculated as below

(2 Ã— 70 + 5x) / (3 Ã— 70 â€“ 5x) =

On calculating further, we get

(2 Ã— 70 + 5x) / (3 Ã— 70 â€“ 5x) = 5 / 2

2 [140 + 5x] = 5 [210 â€“ 5x]

280 + 10x = 1050 â€“ 25x

25x + 10x = 1050 â€“ 280

35x = 770

x = 770 / 35

x = 22

Therefore x is 22

(iii) y, if x = 33

Given

(2y + 5x) / (3y â€“ 5x) =

And x = 33

Hence y can be calculated as below

(2y + 5 Ã—33) / (3y â€“ 5 Ã— 33) =

(2y + 5 Ã—33) / (3y â€“ 5 Ã— 33) = 5 / 2

2 [(2y + 165)] = 5 [(3y â€“ 165)]

4y + 330 = 15y â€“ 825

11y = 1155

y = 1155 / 11

y = 105

Therefore y is 105
