Let the two numbers be 3x and 7x respectively.
Given, $(3x)^2+(7x)^2 = 3712$
⇒ $9x^2+49x^2 = 3712$
⇒ $58x^2 = 3712$
⇒ $x^2 = 64$
⇒ x = 8
Then, Largest number = 7x = 7*8 = 56

Given, $(5x)^2 – (2x)^2 = 1029 ⇒$25x^2 – 4x^2 = 1029
⇒ $21x^2 = 1029 ⇒ x^2 = 49 ⇒ x = 7. Then, the two numbers will be, 2x = 2*7 = 14 5x = 5*7 = 35 Then, Sum of two numbers = 14+35 = 49. 3) Answer (C) Let the present age of daughter be ‘d’ and mother’s be ‘m’ (d-4)/(m-4)=3:8 8d-32=3m-12 8d-3m= 20 (d+6)/(m+6)=8:13 13d+78=8m+48 13d-8m=-30 64d-24m=160 39d-24m=-90 25d=250 d=10 m=20 10 years from now their ages will be d=10+10 and m=20+10 Ratio =20:30 =2:3 4) Answer (B) let the incomes of U and V be 7x and 9x. Now (7x+300)/(9x+300)=4:5 35x+1500=36x+1200 x=300 Income of V =9*300 =2700 5) Answer (B) By taking the amount of soda in each sample we have 1/4,4/7,2/5 and wine as 3/4,3/7,3/5 Total soda content in new sample is ((1/4)+(4/7)+(2/5))=171/140 Total wine content in new sample is ((3/4)+(3/7)+(3/5))=249/140 Ratio =171:249 6) Answer (D) let their incomes be 5x and 6x Then their expenditures will be 5x-250 and 6x-200 Therefore (5x-250/6x-200)=4:5 25x-1250=24x-800 x=450 P’s income=450*5 =2250 7) Answer (C) Amount received by A,B,C and D be 5x,6x,4x and 3x respectively B-D=6000 i.e 6x-3x=6000 x=2000 Total sum is 5x+6x+4x+3x=18x=36000 8) Answer (A) Let x, y are the ages of Ravi and chinna x+y = 30 —-(1) x-y = 14 —–(2) add (1) & (2) x+y+x-y = 30+14 2x = 44 x = 22 then y = 8 Ratio = x/y = 22/8 = 11/4 = 11:4 So the answer is option A. 9) Answer (D) Let us assume that there are 9x boys and 5x girls. So we have 14x = 420 => x = 30 => The college has 30*9 = 270 boys and 5*30 = 150 girls => Now after 30 new boys join the number of boys will become 300. The new ratio is 3:2. Hence, the number of girls must be 200. Thus, 50 new girls must have joined. 10) Answer (C) For fourth proportional we have 12:36::108:x Therefore 12x=36*108 x=324 11) Answer (A) For mean proportional we have 32:x::x:128 Therefore$x^{2}$=32*128 x=64 12) Answer (D) For 3rd proportional we have 12:36::36:x Therefore 12x=36*36 x=108 13) Answer (D) The third proportion is given by the following equation, 48 : 64 :: 64 : ? So, ? = 64 * 64/ 48 = 85.33 14) Answer (D) The given scenario can be represented as follows: So, the required ratio is 25 : 10 = 5 : 2 15) Answer (A) Let the present ages of Ram and Shyam be 5x and 7x respectively. Ages of Ram and Shyam 6 years ago = 5x-6 and 7x-6 (5x-6)/(7x-6) = 2/3 3(5x-6) = 2(7x-6) 15x-18 = 14x-12 x = 6 Present ages of Ram and Shyam = 30 years and 42 years. Sum = 30+42 = 72 years. 16) Answer (D) D = C B = C + 125 A = B + C A + B + C + D = 750 Solving these 4 equations, we get C = 100 B = 225 A = 325 D = 100 17) Answer (C) Let their ages be 5x and 8x. After 8 years, their ages are 5x + 8 and 8x + 8. But 5x+8:8x+8 = 3:4 Solving for x, we get x = 2 So, difference of ages = 8x – 5x = 3x = 6 years 18) Answer (B) For a, b, c and d to be proportional, a:b :: c:d must hold true. => 8 : 18 :: 24 : x => 8x = 24 * 18 => x = 3 * 18 => x = 54 19) Answer (D) Water : Milk = 3 : 2 => water = 3x and milk = 2x => x = 30 => water = 90 litres and milk = 60 litres. For ratio to become 1:5, water quantity must be 5*60 = 300 litres. => water to be added = 300 – 90 = 210 litres. 20) Answer (B) Let the two numbers be a and b respectively.$\frac{a+b}{a-b}$=$\frac{15}{2}$2a + 2b = 15a – 15b => 13a = 17b$\frac{a}{b}$=$\frac{17}{13}\$
