**Detail Solution :**

a) A boat running upstream takes 8 hours 48 minutes to cover a certain distance, while it takes 4 hours to cover the same distance running downstream. What is the ratio between the speed of the boat and the speed of the water current respectively?

Solution:

Suppose, the speed of the boat in still water and the speed of the water current are x km/hr and

y km/hr.

According to the question:

(8 + 48/60)(x-y) = 4(x+y)

(44/5)(x-y) = 4(x+y)

11x-11y = 5x+5y

6x = 16y

x : y = 8 : 3

Answer: 8 : 3

b)

3 coins are tossed at random. Show the sample space and find the probability of getting:

– (i) one head two tails

– (ii) One tail

– (iii) One tail and two heads

Sample Space = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT)

– (i) Probability of getting one head and two tails:

In the sample space we can see, a total of 8 types of outcome is possible.

Among these 8 types of outcomes, the combinations with one head and two tails are : HTT, THT,

TTH, i.e: 3 outcomes.

So, the required probability is 3/8.

– (ii) Probability of getting one tail:

In the sample space we can see, a total of 8 types of outcome is possible.

Among these 8 types of outcomes, the combinations with one tail are : HHT, HTH, THH, i.e: 3

outcomes.

So, the required probability is 3/8.

– (iii) Probability of getting one tail and two heads:

In the sample space we can see, a total of 8 types of outcome is possible.

Among these 8 types of outcomes, the combinations with one tail and two heads are : HHT, HTH,

THH, i.e: 3 outcomes.

So, the required probability is 3/8.

Answer: Sample Space = {HHH, HHT, HTH, THH, HTT, THT, TTH, TTT), (i) 3/8, (ii) 3/8, (iii) 3/8.

c) A, B and C can complete a work in 12, 15 and 25 days respectively. A and B started working together whereas C worked with them in every third day. Find the number of days required to complete the work.

Solution:

A and B together can complete in 1 day = 1/12 + 1/15 = 9/60 = 3/20 of the work.

A and B with the help of C can complete in 1 day = 3/20 + 1/25 = 19/100 of the work.

So, their 3 days’ work = 2×3/20 + 19/100 = (30+19)/100 = 49/100 of the work.

So, their 3×2 = 6 days’ work = 49×2/100 = 49/50 of the work.

Remaining work = 1 – 49/50 = 1/50 of the work.

on the 7th day, A and B will take (1/50)/(3/20) or 20/150 or 2/15 days.

Therefore, the required number of days = 6 2 15 days.

Answer: 6 2 15 days.

d)

The price of a shirt and a pant together is Tk. 1300. If the price of the shirt increases by 5% and that of the pant by 10%, it costs Tk. 1405 to buy those two things. Find the respective price of

a shirt and a pant.

Solution:

Suppose, the prices of a shirt and a pant are Tk. x and Tk. y respectively.

According to the question:

x+y = 1300 ———— (i)

1.05x + 1.1y = 1405 ———- (ii)

Subtracting (ii) from 1.1 times the value of (i) we get,

0.05x = 25

x = 500

Substituting the value of x in equation (i) we get,

500+y = 1300

y = 800.

Answer: Shirt = Tk. 500, Pant = Tk. 800.

e) Twice the width of a rectangle is 10 meters more than its length. If the area of the region

enclosed by the rectangle is 600 square meters, then find its perimeter.

Solution:

Suppose,

L = x

W = 2x-10

Atq,

2x^2-10x= 600

2x^2-10x-600 =0

2(x^2-5x-300) = 0

x^2-20x+15x-300 = 0

(x-20)(x+15) = 0

x= 20

L = 20

W = 20*2-10 = 20

Perimeter, 2(20+30) = 100 Ans.

f)

A customer bought 5 pencils and 6 erasers at Tk. 80. Next week, the price of each pencil increases by 20%, but the price of erasers remains unchanged. Now, the customer buys 2 pencils and 3 erasers at Tk 39. Find the new price of each pencil.

Solution:

Suppose, the original prices of a pencil and an eraser are Tk. x and Tk. y respectively.

According to the question,

5x+6y = 80 ———– (i)

&

2×1.2x + 3y = 39

or, 2.4x+3y = 39 ——— (ii)

Subtracting the double of (ii) from (i) we get,

0.2x = 2

x = 10.

So, the new price of a pencil is = 1.2×10 = 12.

Answer :12
