**solutions:-**

S6.Ans(b)

Sol.

Let the number of days he was absent be x days.

180 (40 – x) – 20 x = 5200

7200 – 180x – 20x = 5200

7200 – 200x = 5200

x = 2000/200 = 10 days

S7.Ans(d)

Sol.

Amount of salt in 40 kg of solution = 4/100 * 40 = 1.6 kg

Let x kg of pure salt be added.

Then, (1.6 + x)/ (40 + x) = 12/100

160 + 100x = 480 + 12x

88x = 320

x = 3.64 kg

S8.Ans(c)

Sol.

(80x + 94y)/(x + y) = 86

80x + 94y = 86x + 86y

8y = 6x

x/y = 8/6 = 4/3 = 4 : 3

S9.Ans(b)

Sol.

Let the age of Angad be x years

Bankie’s age = 3x

Cherry’s age = x + 12

x + 3x + x + 12 = 57

or, 5x + 12 = 57

x = 9

Angad, Bankie and Cherry’s age are 9, 27, 21 years

S10.Ans(a)

Sol.

N2 – 35% of N1 = 4/5 N2

N2 – 4/5N2 = 35/100N1

N2/5 = 35/100N1

N1/N2 = 1/5 * 100/35 = 4 : 7
