Let the ten’s digit and unit’s digit of the original number be $x$ and $y$ respectively.

=> original number = $10x + y$

Average of digits = $\frac{x + y}{2} = 7.5$

=> $x + y = 7.5 \times 2 = 15$ ————-(i)

When 9 is subtracted from it, => Reverse number = $10y + x$

=> $(10x + y) – 9 = 10y + x$

=> $9x – 9y = 9$

=> $x – y = \frac{9}{9} = 1$ —————-(ii)

Adding equations (i) & (ii), we getÂ :

=> $2x = 16$ => $x = \frac{16}{2} = 8$

Putting it in eqn(i), => $y = 15 – 8 = 7$

$\therefore$ Original number = $87$

Let the two successive positive integers be $(x)$ & $(x + 1)$

Acc to ques,

=> $(x) \times (x + 1) = 7482$

=> $x^2 + x – 7482 = 0$

=> $x = \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{(1^2) – (4 \times 1 \times -7482)}}{2}$

=> $x = \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{29929}}{2}$

=> $x = \frac{-1 \pm 173}{2}$

=> $x = 86 , -87$

Since the numbers are positive, => $x = 86$

$\therefore$ Greater number = 86 + 1 =Â 87

Let the original fraction be $\frac{x}{y}$

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{x + \frac{400}{100} * x}{y + \frac{500}{100} * y} = \frac{10}{21}$

=> $\frac{5x}{6y} = \frac{10}{21}$

=> $\frac{x}{y} = \frac{10}{21} \times \frac{6}{5}$

=> $\frac{x}{y} = \frac{4}{7}$

Let the number be $100x$

Acc to ques,

=> $(67 – 43) \%$ of $100x = 912$

=> $\frac{24}{100} \times 100x = 912$

=> $x = \frac{912}{24} = 38$

=> Number = 100 * 38 = 3800

$\therefore$ 19% of 3800 = $\frac{19}{100} * 3800$

= 722

Let the numbers be $100x$ and $100y$

We need to find = $\frac{100x}{100y} = \frac{x}{y} = ?$

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{42}{100} * 100x = \frac{56}{100} * 100y$

=> $42x = 56y$

=> $\frac{x}{y} = \frac{56}{42} = \frac{4}{3}$

=> $x : y = 4 : 3$

Let the number be $x$

Acc to ques,

=> $108^2 + x^2 = 13033$

=> $x^2 = 13033 – 11664$

=> $x = \sqrt{1369} = 37$

Let the two successive positive integers be $(x)$ & $(x + 1)$

Acc to ques,

=> $(x) \times (x + 1) = 3192$

=> $x^2 + x – 3192 = 0$

=> $x = \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{(1^2) – (4 \times 1 \times -3192)}}{2}$

=> $x = \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{21769}}{2}$

=> $x = \frac{-1 \pm 113}{2}$

=> $x = 56 , -57$

Since the numbers are positive, => $x = 56$

$\therefore$ Smaller number =Â 56

We know that $65^2$ = 4225

=> $65^2 < 4321 < 66^2$

Also, $66^2$ = 4356

=> Least number added = 4356 – 4321 = 35

Let the three consecutive odd numbers are = $x , (x + 2) , (x + 4)$

Acc to ques,

=> $x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 1383$

=> $3x = 1383 – 6$

=> $x = \frac{1377}{3} = 459$

$\therefore$ Largest number = $x + 4$ = 459 + 4 = 463

Let the number be $10x + y$

Acc to ques,

=> $x + y = 14$ and $x – y = 2$

Adding both equations, we getÂ :

=> $2x = 16$

=> $x = 8$ and $y = 6$

$\therefore$ Product of the digits of the two – digit number = $8 \times 6 = 48$

Let the number be $x$

Acc to ques,

=> $\frac{3626}{x^2} \times 32 = 2368$

=> $\frac{3626}{x^2} = 74$

=> $x^2 = \frac{3626}{74} = 49$

=> $x = \sqrt{49} = 7$

GivenÂ : $43x + 43y = 4816$

=> $43 (x + y) = 4816$

=> $x + y = \frac{4816}{43} = 112$

$\therefore$Â Required average

=> $\frac{x + y}{2} = \frac{112}{2} = 56$

Let the number be $x$

=> $\frac{2}{5} x + 169 = 3x$

=> $3x – \frac{2x}{5} = 169$

=> $13x = 5 \times 169$

=> $x = \frac{5 \times 169}{13}$

=> $x = 5 \times 13 = 65$

Let the unknown number be x.
Given 6x-168 = 168-x
7x = 336
x=48
15 % of 48 = 0.15 x 48 =7.2
Option E is the correct answer.

$\frac{5}{6}$n-35% of n = 1392.
$\frac{5}{6}n-\frac{35\times{n}}{100}=1392$.
$\frac{29\times{n}}{60}=1392$.
$n=2880$.
55 % of n = $\frac{55\times2880}{100}$.
