6. The average of eight numbers is 25, out of which average of first two numbers is (39/2) and the average of the next three numbers is(70/3) . The sixth number is less than the seventh and the eighth by 5 and 8 respectively. Find the seventh number.
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:31
Explanation:
---> Sum of eight numbers = 25 * 8 = 200
---> Sum of first two numbers = (39/2) * 2 = 39
---> Sum of first three numbers = (70/3) * 3 = 70
---> Let, the sixth number be x
---> So, sum of sixth, seventh and eighth number = 200 – (39+70) = 200 – 109 = 91
---> = x+x+5+x+8 = 91
---> = x = 26
---> Therefore, seventh number = 26 + 5 = 31
---> So option (a) is the correct answer.

SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:51
Explanation:
---> Let the odd numbers are = a-7, a-5, a-3, a-1, a+1, a+3, a+5,a+7 ---> let the even numbers are = b-3,b-1, b+1,b+3 Now, ---> a-7+ a-5 + a-3 + a-1 + a+1 + a+3 + a+5 +a+7 = 8a = 256 ---> a = 32 ---> smallest odd number is 32-7 = 25 ---> similarly, 4b = 100 ---> b = 25......second largest even number is 25 + 1 = 26 ---> Required Sum = 25+ 26 = 51
11. 3 years ago, the ratio of age of A and B is (5: 4). C is 8 years younger than A. The present age of C is 4 times of Dâ€™s present age. Find the present age of B, if the age of D, after 7 years is 12 years?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:23 years
Explanation:
---> 3 years ago, the ratio of age of A and B = 5: 4 (5x, 4x) ---> The present age of A and B = 5x + 3, 4x + 3 ---> Present age of C = Present age of A â€“ 8 ---> Present age of D = 12 â€“ 7 = 5 ---> Present age of C = 4 * present age of D ---> 4*5 = 20 years ---> Present age of A = 20 + 8 = 28 years ---> 5x + 3 = 28 ---> 5x = 25 ---> X = 5
12. 6 years ago, the ratio of the ages of Arun and Prathap is 7: 6. Present age of Rajeev is 10 years more than one – sixth of Prathap’s present age. Find the ratio of present age of Prathap and Rajeev, if Arun’s age after 6 years is 40 years?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:2: 1
Explanation:
----> 6 years ago, the ratio of the ages of Arun and Prathap = 7: 6 (7x, 6x)
----> Present ages of Arun and Prathap = 7x + 6, 6x + 6
----> Present age of Rajeev = (1/6)*Prathap’s present age + 10
13. The ratio of the ages of Tina and Rakesh is (9:10) respectively. Ten years ago the ratio of their ages was (4:5) respectively. What is the present age of Rakesh?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:20yr
Explanation:
---> Let current ages of Tina and Rakesh are X and Y Given that ---> (X : Y) = (9:10) or (X/ Y) = (9/ 10) â†’ X = (9Y/10)â€¦â€¦ (a) ---> Ten years ago their ratios ---> (X-10: Y-10) = (4:5) o r (X-10/Y-10) = (4/5) â€¦. (b) ---> By putting the value of X from (a) into (b) ---> ([(9y/10)-10]/y-10) = (4/5) ---> ((9y/2) -50) = 4y-40 ---> (9y/2)-4y = -40+50 ---> ((9y-8y)/2) = 10 ---> we get Y = 20 ---> Hence Rakeshâ€™s present age is 20 yr.
14. The ratio between Rakesh and Kalai is (17: x). Kalai is 2 years elder than Manoj. Manojâ€™s age after 4 years will be 20 years. The difference between Rakesh and Kalai is equal to Manojâ€™s age. Find the value of x?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:9
Explanation:
---> The present age of Rakesh and Kalai = (17: x) ---> Kalai = (Manoj + 2) ---> Manojâ€™s present age = 20 â€“ 4 = 16 years ---> Kalaiâ€™s present age = 16 + 2 = 18 ---> Rakeshâ€™s age â€“ Kalaiâ€™s age = Manojâ€™s age ---> Rakeshâ€™s age = 16 + 18 = 34 ---> 17â€™s = 34 ---> 1â€™s = 2 ---> The value of x = (Kalaiâ€™s age/2) ---> = (18/2) = 9
15. The age of the father is 34 years more than the sonâ€™s age. Ten years hence, the fatherâ€™s age will become three times the sonâ€™s age that time. What is the sonâ€™s present age in years?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:Seven
Explanation:
---> Let the sonâ€™s present age be x years. ---> Then the fatherâ€™s present age is (x + 34) years. ---> Fatherâ€™s age after 10 years = (x + 44) years ---> Sonâ€™s age after 10 years = (x + 10) years ---> (x + 44) = 3(x + 10) ---> x + 44 = 3x + 30 ---> 2x = 14 ---> x = 7
16. There are four friends A, B, C and D. Five years ago the ages of A and B was in the ratio of 5: 8 respectively. 10 years hence, the ages of C and D will be in the ratio 9: 10 respectively. Present age of A is 25% less than the present age of D. Find the difference between the ages of B and C if the average present age of A, B, C and D is 37 years 6 months.
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:10 yrs
Explanation:
Let the ages of A and B five years ago were 5x years and 8x years respectively. So, the present ages of A and B are '5x + 5' years and '8x + 5' years respectively.
Given that present age of A is 25% less than the present age of D. Present age of D = (5x + 5)*(100/75) = (20x + 20)/3 years Age of D after 10 years = [(20x + 20)/3] + 10 = (20x + 50)/3 years
10 years hence, ratio of ages of C and D = 9 : 10 Age of C after 10 years = [(20x + 50)/3]*(9/10) = 6x + 15 years Present age of C = 6x + 15 - 10 = 6x + 5 years
As per the question, Present age of A + Present age of B + Present age of C + Present age of D = Total age of all 5x + 5 + 8x + 5 + 6x + 5 + (20x + 20)/3 = 4*37.5 15x + 15 + 24x + 15 + 18x + 15 + 20x + 20 = 450 77x + 65 = 450 77x = 385 x = 5 So, present age of B = 8(5) + 5 = 45 years Present age of C = 6(5) + 5 = 35 years Required difference = 45 - 35 = 10 years.
17. The sum of the ages of A, B, and C is 54 years. The ratio of the ages of A and C is 1:2. Bâ€™s father age is twice the age of B. Sum of the ages of A and C is equal to Bâ€™s father age. Calculate the age of B.
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:18 yrs
Explanation:
Given: The ratio of the ages of A and C is 1 : 2. Let the age of A be 'x' and age of C be '2x'. Sum of the ages of A and C is equal to B's father age. Hence, B's father age = x + 2x = 3x
B's father age is twice the age of B. Then B's age = (1/2)*3x = 1.5x
Also given that the sum of the ages of A, B, and C is 54 years. x + 1.5x + 2x = 54 4.5x = 54 x = 54/4.5 x = 12 Therefore, B's age = 1.5*12 = 18 yrs.
18. The ratio of the ages of veer and Vikram 15 years ago was 2 :1 and their ages difference 5 years ago was 10 years, then find out the ratio of ages of Veer and Vikram 15 years hence?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:(5 : 4)
Explanation:
Let the present age of Veer be 'x' years and the present age of Vikram be 'y' years. 15 years ago, ratio of their ages = 2 : 1 (x - 15)/(y - 15) = 2/1 x - 15 = 2y - 30 x - 2y = -15 ...(i)
Given that their ages difference 5 years ago was 10 years. So, age difference between them will be same. x - y = 10 ...(ii) By solving the equation (i) and (ii), x = 35 yrs; y = 25 yrs
15 years hence, Age of Veer = 35 + 15 = 50 yrs Age of Vikram = 25 + 15 = 40 yrs Ratio of their ages after 15 yrs = 50 : 40 = 5 : 4.
19. Rithika's present age is four times her son's present age and two fifth of her father's present age. The average present age of all of them is 40 years. Find the sum of Rithika's son's present age and Rithika's father's present age?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:88 years
Explanation:
Given, Rithika's present age = 4 * Rithika's son's present age ---> The ratio of present age of Rithika and her son's age = 4 : 1 ---> Rithika's present age = 4x ---> Rithika's son's present age = x
Given, Rithika's present age = (2/5) * Rithika's father's present age ----> 4x = (2/5) * Rithika's father's present age ---> 2x = (1/5) * Rithika's father's present age ---> 10x = Rithika's father's present age
Also, Given that, Average present age of all of them = 40 years ---> (Rithika's present age + her son's present age + her father's present age)/3 = 40 ---> (4x + x + 10x)/3 = 40 ---> 15x/3 = 40 ---> 5x = 40 ---> x = 8 Therefore, Rithika's son's present age = x = 8 years Rithika's father's present age = 10x = 10 * 8 = 80 years Now, sum of Rithika's son's present age and Rithika's father's present age = 8 + 80 = 88 years
20. The mean temperature from the 9th to the 16th of January, both days inclusive, was 11.6 degree Celsius and from the 10th to 17th January was 12.2 degree Celsius. The temperature on the 9th January was 10.8 degree Celsius. What was the temperature on the 17th January?
SHOW ANSWER
Correct Ans:15.6 degree Celsius
Explanation:
Given, mean temperature from 9th to 16th January = 11.6° C Total no. of days from 9th to 16th January = 8 ---> Total temperature from 9th to 16th January = mean temperature from 9th to 16th January * Total no. of days from 9th to 16th January = 11.6° C * 8 = 92.8° C
Given, mean temperature from 10th to 17th January = 12.2° C Total no. of days from 10th to 17th January = 8 ---> Total temperature from 10th to 17th January = 12.2° C * 8 = 97.6° C
Given, Temperature on 9th January = 10.8° C
Now, Total temperature from 9th to 17th of January = Temperature on 9th January + Total temperature from 10th to 17th January = 10.8° C + 97.6° C = 108.4° C
Then, Temperature on 17th January = Total temperature from 9th to 17th of January - Total temperature from 9th to 16th January = 108.4° C - 92.8° C = 15.6° C
