Solutions:Ā  (1 toĀ 6)

Average = total sum of elements /number of elements
Average of 5 numbers = 34.4
total of 5 numbers= 34.4 x 5 = 172
Similarly total sum of 1st and 2nd number = 46.5 x 2 = 93
Similarly total sum of 4th and 5th number = 18 x 2 = 36
3rd Number = 172 – (93+36) = 43
hence , E option is correct

Average of 5 numbers is given as 56.4
Total of 5 numbers = Average x Number of Elements
Total of 5 numbers = 56.4 x 5 = 282
Average of 1st and 2nd number is 53
Total of 1st and 2nd number = 53 x 2 = 106
Average of 4th and 5th number is 56
total of 4th and 5th number = 56 x 2 = 112
1st + 2nd + 3rd +4th +5th = 282
106 + 3rd + 112 = 282
3rd = 64
hence option E is correct

Let the ages of the father and son be F and F-26.
Their ages four years ago are F-4 and F-30.
The ratio of these ages is 19:6
Therefore, (F-4)/(F-30) = 19/6
Or, 6F – 24 = 19F – 570
So, 13F = 546
Or, F = 42 and the age of the son is 42-26 = 16
Hence, the required ratio is 42:16 = 21:8

Let the number be X
So, 0.65X – 0.36X = 58
Or, 0.29X = 58 and X = 200
Hence, 23% of X equals 0.23*200 = 46

Let the money Gaurav inherited be equal to X
So, his hostel expenses equal 0.4X
Expenses on books and stationery is 0.2X
Remaining amount is X – 0.4X – 0.2X = 0.4X
Transport expenses is 50% of 0.4X = 0.2X
Remaining amount is 0.4X – 0.2X = 0.2X
He saves 50% of it, that is 0.1X and it equals 450.
So, the value of X is 450/0.1 = 4500

Let the money Gaurav inherited be equal to X
So, his hostel expenses equal 0.4X
ExpensesĀ on books and stationery is 0.2X
Remaining amount is X – 0.4X – 0.2X = 0.4X
Transport expenses is 50% of 0.4X = 0.2X
Remaining amount is 0.4X – 0.2X = 0.2X
He saves 50% of it, that is 0.1X and it equals 450.
So, the value of X is 450/0.1 = 4500
