A person invested a certain, sum for five years
at the rate of r% per annum simple interest. If
he
had invested the same sum at the same rate
compounded half yearly for one year, he would
have received the same amount. Find the value
of r.
(1) 1000% (2) 1600%
(3) 800% (4) 500%,,

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution …
• Let us assume that the amount deposited
was Rs. 100.
• Try with options. 100 + 8000 = 8100 (at
16% per annum).
• 100 * 9 * 9 = 8100 (at 1600% )
• So answer is 1600% answer.

A person invested Rs.20000 in abank which is
offering 10% per annum simple interest. After

bank and deposited the total amount in another
bank which gives an interest rate of r% pa.
compounded annually. After 2 years he
received an amount of Rs.2460 more than what
he had invested in that bank. Find the value of
r.

A man borrowed Rs.55000 from two banks
under compound interest, compounded
annually. One
bank charged interest at the rate of 8% per
year
and the other bank at 12% per year. If at the
end
of the year the man paid Rs.4900 as the total
interest to the two banks, how much loan did he
take from the first bank?
(1) Rs.47500 (2) Rs.42500
(3) Rs.32500 (4) Rs.12500

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution
• Let us find the
average interest
rate:
• 4900/55000 * 100 =
8.9%
8 12
8.9
• The ratio is 31:9
• 31/40 * 55000
• = 42625 3.1 .9

What is the the present’ value of the
payments of
Rs.8400 to be received at the end of the first
year and Rs.8640 to be received at the end
of the second year, If compound interest at
20% p.a. is reckoned

• = 8400/1.2 + 8640/(1.2)^2
• =13000 answer.

conducted.
• Although I had been aware for several months that great
difficulty was being experienced with the A-7D brake, it
was not until April 11, 1968,
• the brake ran out of lining material after a few stops had
been completed and the tests were terminated.
• During the first few attempts to qualify the brake to the
dynamic tests, almost a full year after qualification
testing had begun,
• Attempts were made to secure a lining material that
would hold up during the grueling fifty-one-stop test, but
to no avail.

Sanjay borrowed Rs.14000 at 10%
pa. He repaid Rs.8000 at the end of
the 1 year. What amount should he
pay at the end of the
next year to completely discharge
the loan, compound interest being
reckoned annually?
• Principal for 2nd year : 15400 – 8000=7400
• Interest on 7400 = 740. Thus total amount
payable = 8140 answer.

A shopkeeper defrauds both the dealer and the
customer by measuring the weights incorrectly.
When he is purchasing items from the dealer,
he takes 20% more than the indicated weight
and while selling he gives to the customer n
quantity, such that if 20% is added to it, the
indicated weight is obtained. If the price that the
shopkeeper charges his customer is the same
as what the dealer charges the Shopkeeper,
what is the shopkeeper’s profit percentage?
(1) 40% (2) 44% (3) 50% (4) 60%

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution
• Let us assume that the shopkeeper buys
100 kg @ 100. He gets 120 KG. for 100.
Now 120 kg will be sold as :
• 120 * 100/80 = 150. thus he obtains Rs.
100 @ 100 per kg. Thus he is earning
50% profit on cost. Answer.

A salesman used to get a commission of 12%
on his total sates. A new policy is introduced
and he
now gets a fixed sum of Rs.4680 and 8%
commission on total sales made in excess of
Rs,16000 The salesman’s total sales for the
previous month exceeded Rs.16000 His total
sales for this month was the same as that of
last month and his revenue this month is
Rs.1000 more than that of Iastmonth. Find his
total sales (in Rs.) this month.
(1) 40000 ‘(2) 56000 (3) 60000 (4) 70000

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution
• Let us assume that his sale is X.
• .12X + 1000 = 4680 + .08(X-16000)
• .12X + 1000 = 4680 + .08X -1280
• .04X = 4680 – 2280
• X = 2400 / .04
• X = 60000 or the sale was of Rs. 60000.

Merchant A sold an article after giving a 30%
discount. Merchant B sold the same article after
giving three successive discounts of 10% each.
Merchant C sold the same article after giving
successive discounts of 15%, 10% and 5%. If
the marked prices of the three merchants were
the
same, find the ascending order of their selling
prices.
(1) ACB (2) ABC
(3) BCA (4) BAC

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution
• Let the selling price be 100.
• Selling price by 1st seller = 70
• By 2nd seller = 100*.9*.9*.9 =72.9
• by 3rd seller = 100 *.85*.90*.95 = 72.67
• Thus correct order is ACB . Answer.

The price of an item went up by 25% and a
family decided to reduce its consumption so
that the total expenditure would increase by
only 8% as compared to the previous
expenditure. If 25 kg of the item was
consumed previously, then how many kg of
the item should be consumed now?
(1) 25 kg (2) 20 kg (3) 22.4 kg (4) 21.6 kg

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution
• Let us assume that the earlier rate was
Rs. 100
• Total expenditure = 2500
• New rate = 125
• New consumption: 2500*1.08
• =2700
• Thus new consumption = 2700/125 = 21.6
kg. answer.

Solve it ….
• A salesman used to get 8% on the total
sales as commission. Under a new policy
he now gets a fixed amount Rs.2000 and
5% commission on any amount of sales
above Rs.10000. The salesman thus got
Rs.540 more this month. What were his
total sales for this month?
• (1) Rs.20000 (2) Rs.26000
• (3) Rs.32000 (4) Rs.35000
www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS
Solution
• Let us assume the the sales was of Rs. X.
• .08X +540 = 2000+ .05(X – 10000)
• .08X + 540 = 2000+.05X – 500
• .03X = 2000 – 500 – 540
• X = 960 / .03
• X = 32000 answer.

Find the length of a train running at
45 kmph which can cross a bridge
of length 250 m. in 38 seconds.

• Convert speed into meters / seconds


• = 45*5/18 = 12.5 m per second
• Speed travelled in 38 seconds :
• 38 *12.5 = 475
• The distance of train is 475 – 250 = 225

Find the time taken by a train of
length 100 m running at a Speed of
72 kmph to cross another train of
length 200 m running at a speed of
63 kmph in the same direction.
• Add the two lengths = 100 + 200 = 300
• Find the difference of speed = 72 – 63 = 9
• Convert speed into meters / seconds
• = 9 *5/18 = 2.5
• Divide length by speed = 300/2.5 = 120 seconds
or 2 minutes. Answer.

Two trains running at 63 kmph and
45 kmph cross each other in 15
seconds, when they run in opposite
direction. When they run in the
same direction, a person from the
faster train observes that he
crossed the other train in 40
seconds. Find the lengths of
the two trains. - -

www.afterschoool.tk AFTERSCHO☺OL's MATERIAL FOR PGPSE PARTICIPANTS


Solution
• Let us add their speed
• 63 + 45 = 108 km per hour
• Convert it into m/s = 108*5/18 = 30 m./s
• In 15 seconds they will cover 15*30 = 450
meters. Thus their combined length is 450
meters. We cannot find the length of the
individual trains. Answer.
