A.  Rs. 6576.10/-

B.  Rs. 6686.10/-

C.  Rs. 6756.10/-

D.  Rs. 6876.10/-

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

Rs. 6876.10/-



Explanation :

=> Rebate = 6% of Rs. 6650 = ( 6 / 100 ) x 6650 = Rs. 399/-

=> Sales Tax = 10% of ( 6650 - 399 ) = ( 10 / 100 ) x 6251 = Rs. 625.10/-

=> Final Amount = 6251 + 625.10 = Rs. 6876.10/-


Two numbers A and B are such that the sum of 5% of A and 4% of B is two-third of the sum of 6% of A and 8% of B. Find the ratio of A : B

A.  3 : 4

B.  2 : 4

C.  4 : 2

D.  4 : 3

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

4 : 3



Explanation :

5% of A + 4% of B = 2 / 3 ( 6% of A + 8% of B )

=> ( 5 / 100 ) x A + ( 4 / 100 ) x B = 2 / 3 ( ( 6 / 100 ) x A + ( 8 / 100 ) x B )

=> ( ( 1 / 20 ) x A + ( 1 / 25 ) x B ) = ( 1 / 25 ) x A + ( 4 / 75) x B

=> A / B = 100 / 75

=> A / B = 4 / 3 = 4 : 3


Two students appeared at an examination. One of them secured 9 marks more than the other and his marks was 56% of the sum of their marks. What are the marks obtained by them?

A.  13, 22

B.  23, 32

C.  33, 42

D.  43, 52

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

33, 42



Explanation :

Let their marks be ( x + 9 ) and x

Then, x + 9 = 56 / 100 ( x + 9 + x )

=> 25 ( x + 9 ) = 14 ( 2x + 9 )

=> 3x = 99

=> x = 33

so their marks are 33 and 33 + 9 = 42

=> 33, 42
