Solution

**Concept:**

**Divisblity rule of 9:** if the sum of digits of the number is divisible by 9, then the number itself is divisible by 9

**Calculation:**

We have 481A673

If the number is divisible by 9 then

4 + 8 + 1 + 6 + 7 + 3 = multiple of 9

⇒ 29 + A = multiple of 9

If A = 7, sum become 36 which is divisible by 9.

**∴ Smallest whole number is 7.**

**2. Rupam borrows from a bank at 10% compound interest per annum. After how much time the compound interest will become 21% of the principal?**

- 1 years
- 2 years
- 3 years
- 4 years

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

**Given:**

Rupam borrows from a bank at 10% compound interest per annum.

**Formula used:**

A = P (1 + R/100)^{T}

**Calculation:**

Let Principal (P) = 100

∴ Amount (A) = 121

⇒ 121 = 100 × (1 + 10/100)^{T}

⇒ (1 + 10/100)T = 121/100

⇒ (11/10)T = (11/10)^{2}

T = 2 Years

**∴ After 2 years, the compound interest will become 21% of the principal. **

**3. If the compound interest earned for the 2nd year is Rs. 240 and the rate of interest applied is 20% per annum, then find the principal invested.**

- Rs. 100043% answered correctly
- Rs. 2000
- Rs. 1200
- Rs. 2400

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

**Given:**

The compound interest earned for the 2nd year = Rs. 240,

R = 20% p.a.

**Formula used:**

(1.) C.I_{n+1} = (1 + R%) × C.I_{n}

Where,

C.I_{n} = Compound interest earned for nth year

C.In+1 = Compound interest earned for (n + 1)th year

R = rate of interest applied

(2.) S.I = PRT100PRT100

Where,

P = Principal

R = Rate of interest applied

T = Time invested

**Concept used:**

Simple interest and Compound interest are the same for the first year.

**Calculation:**

According to the question,

⇒ C.I2 = (1 + 20%) × C.I1

⇒ Rs. 240 = (1 + 20%) × C.I1

⇒ Rs. 240 = 1.2 × C.I1

⇒ C.I1 = Rs. 200

Now,

Let P be the principal invested.

Since simple interest and compound interest are the same for the first year,

Therefore,

⇒ 200 = P×20×1100P×20×1100

⇒ P = Rs. 1000

**Therefore, ‘Rs. 1000’ is the required answer.**

**4.If an observation 70 is removed from the data 60, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, 80, then the median is increased by:**

- 2

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

**Given:**

Observations are 60, 68, 70, 72, 74, 76, 78, 80

**Concept used:**

The following steps are helpful while applying the median formula for ungrouped data.

- Step 1: Arrange the data in ascending or descending order.
- Step 2: Secondly, count the total number of observations ‘n’.
- Step 3: Check if the number of observations ‘n’ is even or odd.

**Median Formula When n is Odd**

Median = [(n + 1)/2]^{th} term

**Median Formula When n is Even**

Median = [(n/2)^{th} term + ((n/2) + 1)^{th }term]/2

**Calculation:**

As the numbers are already in the increasing order so we don’t need to arrange them

Now, median = 4thterm+5thterm24thterm+5thterm2

⇒ 72+74272+742

⇒ 73

Now, if 70 is removed the new median will be = 4th term,

⇒ 74

So, median increased = 74 – 73

⇒ 1

**∴ Required increased in the median is 1.**

**5.Simple interest on a certain sum is 16/25 of the sum. Find the rate per cent and time, if both are equal.**

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

**Concept used:**

in this type of questions

first we take the L.C.M. of the given numbers.

**Calculation:**

** **Factor of the given numbers :

15 = 3 × 5

32 = 2^{5}

^{ }48 = 2^{4 }× 3

L.C.M. of 15 , 32 and 48 = 2^{5} × 3 × 5 = 480

The largest 4 digit number is 9999.

When we divide the largest 4 digit number i.e. 9999 by 480 , we find the remainder 399 & when we substract this number from 9999 , we will get the largest 4 digit number which is exactly divisible by 15, 32, 48.

Therefore,

The number is : 9999 – 399 = 9600

Hence, the correct answer is **“9600”.**

**12. An article was marked at 20% above its cost price and a discount of 20% is given on the marked price. Find the profit or loss percentage.**

- Neither profit nor loss
- 4% Loss81% answered correctly
- 8% Profit
- 10% Profit

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

**Given:**

An article was marked at 20% above its cost price

A discount of 20% is given on the marked price.

**Formula used:**

S.P = C.P [1 – Los%/100]

S.P = selling price , C.P = cost price

**Calculation:**

C.P = 100

Market price = 100 + 20 = 120

⇒ Discount = 20/100 × 120 = 24

⇒ S.P = 120 – 24 = 96

⇒ Loss = 100 – 96 = 4

⇒ Loss % = (4/100) × 100 = 4%

**∴ The loss percentage 4%**.

**13. A shopkeeper marks up the price of an article 60% above the C.P. and gives 10% discount, Find the profit %.**

- 48
- 24
- 54
- 44

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

**Given:**

Mark up% = 60%

Discount = 10%

**Concept used:**

Marked price = C.P. + Markup % of C.P.

Selling Price = Marked price – Discount

Profit % = S.P.−C.P.C.P.S.P.−C.P.C.P.* 100%

**Calculations:**

Let the C.P. of the article = 100x

Marked price = 100x + 60% of 100x

⇒ Marked price = 160x

Selling price = 160x – 10% of 160x

⇒ Selling price = 160x – 16x

⇒ Selling price = 144x

Profit = 144x−100x100x144x−100x100x* 100 %

⇒ Profit = 44%

**Hence option D is the correct answer.**

Reattempt mode is Off. Turn it on from bottom bar

Solution

** Shortcut Trick**5% of C.P – 4% of C.P = 6

⇒ 1 % of C.P = 6

⇒ 100 % of CP = 600

**∴ Cost of T-shirt is 600 Rs.**__Alternate Method__

**Formula used:**

S.P. = C.P (1 + P%/100)

**Calculation:**

Using the above formula,

SP_{1} = CP(1 + 4/100)

⇒ SP_{1} = (26/25)C.P —–(1)

SP_{2} = (1 + 5/100)

⇒ SP_{2} = (21/20)C.P —–(2)

According to the question,

SP_{2} – SP_{1} = 6

⇒ (21/20 – 26/25)C.P = 6

⇒ (105 – 104)C.P / 100 = 6

⇒ CP = 600 Rs.

**∴ Cost of T-shirt is 600 Rs.**
