Q 2 - 28 is the average of 3 numbers. Find out the value of third number if the given condition is such that the second number have the double value in the comparison of first number and third number have 4 times value of first number?

### Answer : A

### Explanation

If x is the value of third number. Then the value of second number is x/2 , if x/2 is the value of second number then the value of first number will be 1/2 . x/2 = x/4. Total sum of three number = (3*28) =84 ∴ x+x/2+x/4 = 84 ⇒ 7x/4 = 84 ⇒ x= (84*4)/7 = 48 So, its proves that the value of the third number is 48.

Q 3 - A class has 24 students. If 18 year old boys left the school and one new boy join the school in that situation the average decrease by 1 month. Find out the age of new boy?

### Answer : A

Q 5 - What should be the average of monthly consumption if 110 ltr is the average of 7 month and Rs. 86 is the average for the next 5 month consumption?

### Answer : D

### Explanation

12 month consumptions = [(110*7)+(86*5)] ltr. = 1200 ltr. ∴ per month consumption = 1200/12 = 100 ltr.

Q 6 - Find out the original average weight of the class if 1 kg weight increased in average weight if we add a new person who has 50 kg. If one more add in the class then the average weight increased with 1.5 kg over the original average.

### Answer : A

### Explanation

if x is the average the number of students and y is the average weight. Then , xy+50/ (x+1) =(y+1) ⇒ xy+50= xy+x+y+1 ⇒ x+y= 49...(i) xy+50+50/(x+2) = (y+3/2 )⇒ xy+100 = xy +3x/2+2y+3 ⇒ 3x/2+ 2y = 97 ⇒ 3x+4y =194 ...(ii) Multiplying (i) by 3 and subtracting it from (iii), we get y =47. Hence , the original average of weight is 47 kg.

Q 7 - The average score of a cricketer for ten matches is 38.9 runs. If the average for the first six matches is 42, then find the average for the last four matches?

**Answer - B**
