1. Weight of 8 identical articles is 4.8 kg. What is the weight of 11 such articles?

Solution:

It is given that

Weight of 8 identical articles = 4.8 kg

So the weight of 1 article = 4.8/8 kg

Here the weight of 11 such articles = 4.8/8 × 11

We get

= 0.6 × 11

= 6.6 kg

2. 6 books weigh 1.260 kg. How many books will weigh 3.150 kg?

Solution:

It is given that

Weight of 6 books = 1.260 kg or 1 kg 260 g

Number of books = 6

So the number of books in 1 kg = 6/ 1.260

Number of books in 3.150 kg = (6 × 3.150)/ 1.260

Multiplying 1000 to numerator and denominator

= (6 × 3150)/ 1260

= 3150/ 210

= 15 books

3. 8 men complete a work in 6 hours. In how many hours will 12 men complete the same work?

Solution:

It is given that

Time taken by 8 men to complete a work = 6 hours

So the time taken by 1 man to complete the work = 6 × 8 hours

Time taken by 12 men to complete the work = (6 × 8)/ 12 = 4 hours

4. If a 25 cm long candle burns for 45 minutes, how long will another candle of the same material and same thickness but 5 cm longer than the previous one burn?

Solution:

Time taken by a 25 cm long candle to burn = 45 minutes

Time taken by a 1 cm long candle to burn = 45/ 25 minutes

So the time taken by a 25 + 5 = 30 cm long candle to burn = (45 × 30)/ 25 = 54 minutes

5. A typist takes 80 minutes to type 24 pages. How long will he take to type 87 pages?

Solution:

Time taken by a typist to type 24 pages = 80 minutes

Time taken by a typist to type 1 page = 80/24 minutes

Time taken by a typist to type 87 pages = (80 × 87)/ 24 = 290 minutes

6. ₹750 support a person for 15 days. For how many days will ₹ 2,500 support the same person?

Solution:

It is given that

₹ 750 can support a family for 15 days

So ₹ 1 will support a family = 15/ 750 days

Similarly ₹ 2500 will support a family = 15/ 750 × 2500 = 50 days

7. 400 men have provisions for 23 weeks. They are joined by 60 men. How long will the provisions last?

Solution:

It is given that

No. of weeks 400 men have provisions = 23 weeks

No. of weeks 1 man have provisions = 23 × 400 weeks

So the no. of weeks 400 + 60 = 460 men have provisions = (23 × 400)/ 460 = 20 weeks

8. 200 men have provisions for 30 days. If 50 men have left, for how many days the same provisions would last for the remaining men?

Solution:

No. of days 200 men have provisions = 30 days

No. of days 1 man have provisions = 30 × 200 days

So the no. of days 200 – 50 = 150 men have provisions = (30 × 200)/ 150 = 40 days

9. 8 men can finish a certain amount of provisions in 40 days. If 2 more men join them, find for how many days will the same amount of provisions be sufficient.

Solution:

No. of days 8 men can finish a certain amount of provision = 40 days

No. of days 1 man can finish provision = 40 × 8 days

So the no. of days 8 + 2 = 10 men finish a provision = (40 × 8)/ 10 = 32 days

10. If the interest on ₹ 200 be ₹ 25 in a certain time, what will be the interest on ₹ 750 for the same time?

Solution:

It is given that

Interest on ₹ 200 = ₹ 25

Interest on ₹ 1 = ₹ 25/200

So the interest on ₹ 750 = (25 × 750)/ 200 = 750/8 = ₹ 93.75

11. If 3 dozen eggs cost ₹ 90, find the cost of 3 scores of eggs. [1 score = 20]

Solution:

We know that

3 dozen = 3 × 12 = 36 eggs

3 scores = 3 × 20 = 60

Cost of 36 eggs = ₹ 90

Cost of 1 egg = ₹ 90/36

Cost of 60 eggs = (90 × 60)/ 36 = ₹ 150

12. If the fare for 48 km is ₹ 288, what will be the fare for 36 km?

Solution:

It is given that

Fare for 48 km = ₹ 288

So the fare for 1 km = (288 × 36)/ 48 = ₹ 216

13. What will be the cost of 3.20 kg of an item, if 3 kg of it costs ₹ 360?

Solution:

It is given that

Cost of 3 kg of an item = ₹ 360

Cost of 1 kg of an item = ₹ 360/3

So the cost of 3.20 kg of an item = (360 × 3.20)/ 3 = ₹ 384

14. If 9 lines of a print, in a column of a book, contain 36 words, how many words will a column of 51 lines contain?

Solution:

No. of words in a 9 lines of a print = 36

No. of word in a 1 line of a print = 36/9

No. of words in 51 lines of a print = 36/9 × 51 = 204

15. 125 students have food sufficient for 18 days. If 25 more students join them, how long will the food last now?

Solution:

No. of pupils in the beginning = 125

No. of pupils joined = 25

So the total no. of pupils = 125 + 25 = 150

No. of days food is sufficient for 125 pupils = 18 days

No. of days food is sufficient for 1 pupil = 18 × 125 days

No. of days food is sufficient for 150 pupils = (18 × 125)/ 150

We get

= (18 × 5)/ 6

= 15 days
