1. 30

2. 40

3. 60

4. 70

5. 45

Sol : A+ B = 30

A = 16

B = 16 + 28

After 16 days of work of B (16×1= 16) 16 work will be done

Remaining work = 30 - 16= 14

B = 14 / 28 =.5

B = 30 / 0.5 = 60

2. There are total 94 people in a party consisting of male and female. Fifth part of the male and eighth part of the female are in the ratio 3 : 4. If out of all the males, 50% are married while out of the total female 25% females are married, then find the percentage of unmarried people (approx.)?

1. 60

2. 65

3. 68

4. 70

5. 72.22

Sol : 16m x 4.5 = 24m x D, D = 3 days

24m x 3 = 36w x 5, m : w=5 : 2

Total work= 24 x 5 x 3 = 360

2m = 5w so ,

Work done by 5w and 8m in 2 days ( 5 w + 8 m ) =( 5 × 2 + 8 × 5 ) = 100

Remaining work will be = 360 – 100 = 260

Require percentage will be = 260/360 ×100 = 72.22%

Brother amount = 16%

Sister amount = 24%

According to questions ,

8% = 1200

Saving is 24% , so 24% will be equal to = 3600.
