 So , its proves that that boys percentage in a class is 60%.

x1+x2+x3 =(15*3)= 45
x2+x3+x4 =(16*3)= 48
On subtracting ,we get x4-x1=3
∴19-x1 =3 ⇒ x1=16.
First number = 16

Q 10 - 10 years ago. the average age of a family of 4 members was 24 years. Two children having been born, (with age difference) the present average age of the family is the same today. The present age of the youngest child is?

A - 5

B - 3

C - 1

D - 2

Answer - B

Explanation

Total age of 4 members, 10 years ago = (24 x 4) years = 96 years 
Total age of 4 members now = 96 + 10 x 4 yrs = 136 years 
Total age of 6 members now = (24 x 6) years = 144 years 
Sum of the ages of 2 children = (144 - 136) years = 8 years 

Let the age of the younger child be z years. 
Then, age of the elder child = (z + 2) years 
so, z + z + 2 = 8 
2z = 6 
z = 3 
Therefore Age of younger child = 3 years.
