Option: (a) 1:8 (b) 1:6 (c) 1:4 (d) 1:2 (e) 2:1

Explore : Let, Sunny hat $ X

:. Curie has $ 3X

:. Marie has $ (3X x 2) or $ 6X

:. The ratio of amount of money Sunny has to the amount of money Marie has

= X:6X = X/6X = 1/6 = 1:6

Answer: (b)

**Question: 18Masum has twice as much money as Selim and Selim has 50% more money than what Babal has. If the average money with them is $ 110, then determine the amount of Masum's Money.**

Explore: Let, Babal has $ X:. Selim has $ (X + X x 50%) = $ (X x 0.5%X) = $1.5X :. Masum has $ (1.5X x 2) = $3X According to the question, X + 1.5X + 3X = 110 x 3 => 5.5X = 330 => X = 3.30/5.5 = 60 :. Masum has $ (3 x 60) = $ 180 Answer: $ 180 |

**Question: 19 The cost of a book is 1.5 times that of a CD. The price of a pencil is 1/3 rd of that of a pen, The cost of the pen is twice as much as that of the CD. What is the ratio of cost of the book to cost of the pencil?**

Explore: Let, the cost of CD =X

:. Cost of a book = 1.5X

Cost of a pen = 2X

?Cost of a pencil = 2X x 1/3 = 2X/3

:. The ratio of cost of the book to the cost of the pencil

= 1.5X :2X/3 = 1.5X/(2X/3) = 1.5X x 3/2X

= 4.5/2 = 9/4 = 9:4

Answer: 9 : 4

**Question: 20 A room has a floor area of 150sq. feet. If the length & breath of the room are in the ratio 3:2, then what is the length of the floor in feet?**

Option: (a) 10 (b) 15 (c) 20 (d) 9 (e)

**None**

Explore: Let, L be the length of the room

According to the problem,

length/ width = 3/2

Or, L/width = 3/2 => width 2L/3

:. L x 2L/3 = 150

=> LxL = (3 x 150)/2 = 3 x 3 x 25

:. L 3 x 5 = 15

Answer: (b)

**Question: 21 A gentleman spends 2/5th of his monthly income on food, 1/4th on education and the rest $ 200 is saved. What is his monthly income?**

Option: (a) 2000 (b) 1500 (c) 1200 (d) 1000 (e) None

Explore: Let, X be his monthly income.

:. (2/5)X + (1/4)X + 200 = X

:. 200 = X - (2/5)X - (1/4)X

= X (1-2/5 -1/4)

= X((20-8-5)/20) = X(7/.20)

:. X = (200 x 20)/7 571.43

Answer: (e)
