In a bag, there are coins of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p in the ratio of 1 : 2 : 3. If there is Rs. 30 in all, how many 5 p coins are there?

**Answer: Option 'B'**

**Let the number of 25 p, 10 p and 5 p coins be x, 2x, 3x respectively.
Then, sum of their values = Rs. ( 25 x / 100 + 10 x 2x / 100 + 5 x 3x/ 100 ) = RS. 60x /100
Therefore, 60x/100 = 30 <=> x = 30 x 100/60 = 50
Hence, the number of 5 p coins = (3 x 50) = 150.**

Two numbers are in the ratio 1:2, if 20 is added to each they are in the ratio 11:18. Find the two numbers.

**Answer: Option 'A'**

**Numbers are in the ratio 1 : 2
Two numbers are 1k and 2k
Adding 20 to both the numbers, 1k+20 and 2k+20
Given that 1k+20 : 2k+20 = 11 : 18 => 18(1k+20) = 11(2k+20) => (18-22)k = 20 x (-7) => k = 35
First Number , 1 x k = 35 Second Number 2 x k = 70
Numbers are 35 and 70**

Three numbers are in the ratio 3:5:7. The largest number value is 42. Find difference between Smallest & largest number is?

**Answer: Option 'D'**

**= 3:5:7
Total parts = 15
= The largest number value is 42
= The largest number is = 7
= Then 7 parts -----> 42 ( 7 × 6 = 42 )
= smallest number = 3 & Largest number = 7
= Difference between smallest number & largest number is = 7 - 3 = 4
= Then 4 parts -----> 24 (4 × 6 = 24) **

**Answer: Option 'D'**

**50paisa : Rs.1/- : Rs.2/- = 4 : 2 : 1 ---> coins ratio
= 2 : 2 : 2 ----> money ratio
Rs.2/- × 10 coins = Rs.20/-
Rs.1/- × 20 coins = Rs.20/-
50 Paisa × 40 coins = Rs.20/-
Then 50paisa coins in that bag = 40 cions**

The sum of three numbers is 98. If the ratio of the first to second is 2 :3 and that of the second to the third is 5 : 8, then the second number is:

**Answer: Option 'C'**

**Let the three numbers be A, B, C.
Then, A : B = 2 : 3 and
B : C = 5 : 8
Now, A : B = 2 : 3
=> A : B = (2 × 5) : (3 × 5) = 10 : 15
Now, B : C = 5 : 8
=> B : C = (5 × 3) : (8 × 3) = 15 : 24
Thus, A : B : C = 10 : 15 : 24
=> A = 10x, B = 15x, C = 24x
Given, A + B + C = 98
=> 10x + 15x + 24x = 98
=> 49x = 98

If a:b=1:2, b:c=3:4 and c:d = 2:3 find a:b:c:d?

**Answer: Option 'B'**

**a:b = 1:2, b:c = 3:4, c:d = 2:3
1:2
3:4
( a = 1 × 3 = 3, b = 2 × 3 = 6 and c = 2 × 4 = 8)
(a = a × b, b= b × b and c= b × c)
a:b:c = 3:6:8
a:b:c = 3:6:8 and c:d = 2:3

Two number are in the ratio 3 : 5. If 9 is subtracted from each, the new numbers are in the ratio 12 : 23. The smaller number is:

**Answer: Option 'A'**

**Let the numbers be 3x and 5x.
Then, 3x - 9 / 5x - 9 = 12/3
=> 23×( 3x-9) = 12× (5x - 9)
=> 69x - 207 = 60 x - 108
=> 9x = 99
=> x = 11
