Q2 answer

Total time = 500/V hr
Consumption of petrol/hr = 2/2500 x V^2
Total Consumption of petrol = 2/2500 x V^2 x 500/V = 2/5 x V

Exp = 60 x 500/V + 30 x 2/5  V

To minimize exp, diff of above should be zero

12 – 30,000 * 1/ V^2 = 0

=>  V^2 = 30,000/12

=> V =  50 lt

And total exp = 600 + 600 = Rs. 1200

Soln. a/b=c/d ...............................................(1)



adding 1 to both sides




but  b/d=a/c (from 1)

Q-6.  a/b=c/d=k(let) i.e,

Q-6.  a/b=c/d=k(let) i.e, a=bk,c=dk

Now a^2 +b^2 /c^2+d^2= b^2(1+k^2)/d^2(1+k^2)= b^2/d^2

Q4 answers
Fixed = F
Royalty = R
30,000 = F + 1000 R
50,000 = F + 2000 R
=> R = 20
And F = 10,000
When 5000 books are sold, total income = 10,000 + 20 * 5, 000 = 110, 000
Income per book = 110,000 / 5000 = 22

a = 1, b = 2 , c = 4

a : c = 1 : 4

a^2 : b^2 = 1 : 4

b^2 : c^2 = 1 : 4

(a^2 + b^2) : (b^2 + c^2) = 1 : 4

Q3 answer

Given in question, a/b=b/c ----- (1)

now from (1)  , a/c= b2/c2  -----  option (a)

again , b/c=a/b =>b2/c2=a2/b2= a/c  ------ option (c)

Now from (1) , a=bk,b=ck, then a2+b2/b2+c2= a/c ----- option (b)


Hence ans - (d)

Q5 Answer

Given p=3q=4r --(1) , 2q=5s=12t -- (2)

Now combine both,  we will get 2p=6q=8r=15s=36t

again it can be written in the form , p/180=q/60=r/45=s/20=t/10= k (say)

Now match with all options which is given in question , we will find only option (d) , where it can not be integer. explaination --P/8 will be integer, but s/r= 20k/45k= not integer .

Hence option (d). Any doubt contact me on
