**The tank full of petrol in Haroon’s motorcycle lasts for 10 days, if he starts using 25% more every day for how many days will the tank full of petrol last?**

Explanation:

Let us assume that Arun uses X units of petrol everyday.

So the amount of petrol in the tank when it is fuel will be 10X.

If he started using 25% more petrol every day, then the amount of petrol he how uses everyday will be

X (1 +25/100) =1.25x

Therefore, number of days his petrol will how last = Amount of petrol in tank / amount of petrol used everyday = 10x/1.25x = 10/1.25 = 8 Days

Explanation:

Let us assume that Arun uses X units of petrol everyday.

So the amount of petrol in the tank when it is fuel will be 10X.

If he started using 25% more petrol every day, then the amount of petrol he how uses everyday will be

X (1 +25/100) =1.25x

Therefore, number of days his petrol will how last = Amount of petrol in tank / amount of petrol used everyday = 10x/1.25x = 10/1.25 = 8 Days

**In a survey it was found that 80% of those surveyed owned a car while 60% of those surveyed owned a mobile phone, if 55% owned both a car and a Mobile phone, What percent of those surveyed owned a car or a mobile phone or both?**

Explanation:

Given that percentage of car owners = 80%

Percentage of mobile phone owners = 60%

Percentage of people having both car and mobile phone = 55%

Percentage of people having only car = 80 -55 = 25%

Percentage of people having only mobile phone = 60 -55 =5%

Percentage of people having car or mobile phone or both = 55% + 25% + 5% = 85%

Explanation:

Given that percentage of car owners = 80%

Percentage of mobile phone owners = 60%

Percentage of people having both car and mobile phone = 55%

Percentage of people having only car = 80 -55 = 25%

Percentage of people having only mobile phone = 60 -55 =5%

Percentage of people having car or mobile phone or both = 55% + 25% + 5% = 85%

**In an examination, every candidate took physics or mathematics or both 65.8% took physics and 59.2% took mathematics the total number of candidates was 2000. How many candidates took both physics and mathematics?**

Explanation:

Let x% candidates take both the subjects.

Therefore, Percentage of candidates who opted physics = 65.8%

And percentage of candidates who opted mathematics = 59.2%

Therefore, x =(65.8 + 59.2 – 100)%

= (125 -100)% = 25%

Also total number of candidates = 2000

Therefore, Number of candidates who opted both the subjects = 25/100 x 2000 =500

Explanation:

Let x% candidates take both the subjects.

Therefore, Percentage of candidates who opted physics = 65.8%

And percentage of candidates who opted mathematics = 59.2%

Therefore, x =(65.8 + 59.2 – 100)%

= (125 -100)% = 25%

Also total number of candidates = 2000

Therefore, Number of candidates who opted both the subjects = 25/100 x 2000 =500

**In a company, 60% of the employees are men, of this 40 % are drawing more than Rs. 50000 per year. 36% of the total employees of the company draw more than Rs.50000 per year then what is the percentage of women who are drawing less than Rs. 5000 per year?**

Explanation:

Total number of employees be 100

Then number of men = 6000/100 = 60

Number of women = 4000/100 = 40

Therefore, number of men drawing more than Rs. 50000 = 2400/100 = 24 men

Since the number of total employees drawing more than Rs. 50000 = 3600/100 = 36

Number of women who draw more than Rs. 50000 = 36- 24 = 12

Number of women who draw less than Rs. 50000 = 40 -12 = 28

Therefore, Percentage of the women who draw less than Rs. 50000 per year = 28/40 x 100% = 70%

Explanation:

Total number of employees be 100

Then number of men = 6000/100 = 60

Number of women = 4000/100 = 40

Therefore, number of men drawing more than Rs. 50000 = 2400/100 = 24 men

Since the number of total employees drawing more than Rs. 50000 = 3600/100 = 36

Number of women who draw more than Rs. 50000 = 36- 24 = 12

Number of women who draw less than Rs. 50000 = 40 -12 = 28

Therefore, Percentage of the women who draw less than Rs. 50000 per year = 28/40 x 100% = 70%

Number of literate males = 70% of males = 126000

Explanation:

Total population = 300000

Total number of males = 180000

Total literates = 5% of total population = 150000

Number of literate males = 70% of males = 126000

**In a test a candidate attempted only 8 Questions and secured 50% marks in each of the questions if the obtained a total of 40% in the test and all questions in the test carried equal marks, how many questions were there in the test?**

Explanation:

Let the marks of each question be 10

Total marks got by the candidate = 8 x 5 =40 marks

40% = 40 : 100 = 100

Therefore, Total number of questions = 100/10 =10

Explanation:

Let the marks of each question be 10

Total marks got by the candidate = 8 x 5 =40 marks

40% = 40 : 100 = 100

Therefore, Total number of questions = 100/10 =10

**Candidates in a competitive examination consisted of 60% men and 40% women 70% men and 75% women cleared the qualifying test and entered the final test where 80% men and 70% women were successful? Which of the following statements is correct?**

Explanation:

Let there are 100 persons in which 60 men and 40 women number of men who cleared the qualifying test

= 70 x 60/100 = 42

Number of women who cleared the qualifying test

= 40 x ¾ = 30

Number of men who get success in final test

= 42 x 4/5 = 33.6

Number of women who get success in final test

= 30 x 70/100 = 21

Hence more men cleared the examination than a woman.

Explanation:

Let there are 100 persons in which 60 men and 40 women number of men who cleared the qualifying test

= 70 x 60/100 = 42

Number of women who cleared the qualifying test

= 40 x ¾ = 30

Number of men who get success in final test

= 42 x 4/5 = 33.6

Number of women who get success in final test

= 30 x 70/100 = 21

Hence more men cleared the examination than a woman.

Explanation:

Value after 2 Years = Rs[100000 × (1 – 10/100)2]

= Rs (100000 × 0.9 × 0.9) = Rs 81000
