Answer and Explanation.

1. F + C + T = 100-------------eq1 15F + C + 0.25T =
100-------------eq2 eq1=eq2 .solve to get F=3T/56 ;F=3,T=56,C=41

2. a) There is no need to consider their meeting pt at all.the train
has been running for 90miles/(60miles/hr)=1.5hrs.bird flies till train
reaches destination frm strting pt.so bird flies for1.5hrs at the vel
given(90).so dist=1.5*90=135miles b) time of train=1hr.so dist of
bird=60*1=60miles

3. (a) u don't need to sum it up.since it's a knock out only 1 person
emerges winner finally.so15+1=16is answer.becos after15 matches finally
we shud've 15losers and 1winner.(b) 49:its always one less than no of
players as per the idea given above.so no need to check okay cos its
always true.ans is 49.

4. Let x= current age 4(x+4)+5(x+5)=10x ;so x=R 41 years

5. 37(x-y)=x^2-y^2. u no tht x^2-y^2=(x-y)(x+y).so (x-y) cancels on
both sides to give x+y=37.so sum of unequal halves=37 which is the req
answer.

6. R ans:7 teams okay.for a match u need 2 teams.suppose there r
totally 'n 'teams.Now uve to choose 2 teams out of 'n' teams.so answer
=no of such choices=no. of possible combinations. So we've ans =
nC2(ncombination2)=21;solve to get n=7.Sol: n(n-1)/2=21. so n=7.if u
don't understand c the graph beloweach team plays no. of matches=no of
teams ahead of it. One bar '' represents one team. ------------7 6 5 4
3 2 1 0 -----------21last team is written as 0 matches becos this team
has already played with all other teams-hence sum of matches
=6+5+4+3+2+1=21 which is correct only if no of teams =7

7. R 141. G+2=j-22. 2(G-2)=J+2.solve these 2 to get J=14

8. a). Sol:each mky takes 8 min to eat a banana b).ans:8m=48 m=6

9. Use sets and venn diagram to solve such questions.a,b ,aub,anb
etc.12=tennis+leave18=jog +leaveso jog-tennis=6again jog+tennis=14.so
solve and get jog=10,leave=8,tennis=4.so tot=22

10. Ans= 32*2 + 30*2=124
