SSC 2015:Brief Notes on Average With Quiz

TIPS FOR SOLVING QUESTIONS RELATED TO AVERAGE:
1. The average of a number of quantities of the same kind is equal to their sum divided by the number of those quantities. Thus,
Average =  Sum of the quantities / Number of quantities

 ANSWER AND SOLUTION :


1(A)Explanation:
Total number of biscuits = 1*8+2*6+3*4+4*2= 8 + 12 + 12 + 8 = 40
Average number of biscuits = 40/10= 4

2(C)Explanation:
The sixth number = 6*32 + 6 * 37-11*35
 = 192 + 222 – 385
 = 29

3(C)Explanation:
Total runs required to win the match = 20 * 7.2 = 144
Runs scored in 15 over = 15 * 6 = 90
Runs required in 5 overs = 144 – 90 = 54
Required run rate = 54/5 = 10.8

4(B)Explanation:
Fifth integer = 9*32 – 4*26 – 4*8
= 288 – 104 – 112
= 72

5(B)Explanation:
Let avrage run of 1 innings = x
Total runs of 11 innings = 11x
Score of 12th innings = 90
Average run of 12 innings = x=5
Total runs of 12 innings = 12(x+5)
12(x+5) – 11x = 90
12x + 60 – 11x = 90
x = 30
Thus, average run after the 12th innings = 30+5= 35

6(C)Explanation :
Let the monthly income of A = a
monthly income of B = b
monthly income of C = a
a+b=2×5050———(Equation1)
b+c=2×6250———(Equation2)
a+c=2×5200———(Equation3)
(Equation 1) + (Equation 3) – (Equation 2)
=>a+b+a+c-(b+c)=(2×5050)+(2×5200)-(2×6250)
=> 2a = 2(5050 + 5200 – 6250)
=> a = 4000
=> Monthly income of A = 4000

7 (D)Explanation :
Let Kiran’s weight = x. Then
According to Kiran, 65 < x < 72 ————(equation 1)
According to brother, 60 < x < 70 ————(equation 2)
According to mother, x = 68 ————(equation 3)
Given that equation 1,equation 2 and equation 3 are correct. By combining these equations,
we can write as
65<x=68
That is x = 66 or 67 or 68
average of different probable weights of Kiran = (66+67+68)/3=67

8( B)Explanation:
Required average =  (67 x 2 + 35 x 2 + 6 x 3)/(2+2+3)
= (134 + 70 + 18)/7
= 222/7
= 31  5/7 years.

9(B)Explanation :
Average marks of batch1 = 50
Students in batch1 = 55
Total marks of batch1=55×50
Average marks of batch2 = 55
Students in batch2 = 60
Total marks of batch2=60×55
Average marks of batch3 = 60
Students in batch3 = 45
Total marks of batch3=45×60
Total students = 55 + 60 + 45 = 160
Average marks of all the students = ((55×50)+(60×55)+(45×60))/160
=(275+330+270)/16 = 875/16=54.68

10(C)Explanation :
(3+11+7+9+15+13+8+19+17+21+14+x)/12 =12
=>137+x/12=12
=> 137 + x = 144

=> x = 144 – 137 = 7

  8. dekho…angle ADC= 88 ho jaega

    and CD parallel AE
    so angle DAE will be 88
    thn angle FAD = 108 (88+20)

    angle BAD= 72(180-108)

    so angle BCD = 180-72=108
