Comparing quantities
Exercise : 8.1
q.1: Find ratio of the following :
(a): Speed of a cycle 15 km per hour to the
speed of scooter 30 km per hour .
Sol : Ratio = 15 km : 30 km
= 15 : 30
= 15/30
= 1/2
=1:2
(b) : 5 m to 10 km .
Sol : Ratio = 5 m : 10 km
= 5 m : 10000 m
= 5 : 10000
= 5/10000
= 1/2000
= 1 : 2000
(c) : 50 paise to Rs 5 .
Sol : Ratio = 50 paise : Rs 5
= 50 paise : 500 paise
= 50 : 500
= 50/500
= 1/10
= 1: 10
Q.2 : Convert the following ratio to % :
(a) : 3 : 4
Sol : 3 : 4 % = 3/4
= 3/4 x 100
= 75 %
2:3
(b) :
Sol : 2 : 3 % = 2/3
= 2/3 x 100
= 66 2/3 %
Q.3 : 72 % of 25 students are good in
Mathematics . How many are not good in
Mathematics ?
Sol : No. of st. good in maths = 75 %
No. of st. not good in maths = (100 – 72)
= 28 % of 25
= 28/100 x 25
= 7 st.
Q.4 : A football team won 10 matches out of the total
no. of matches they played . If their win % was 40 ,
then how many matches did they play in all ?
Sol : Let they played games in all be x .
The no. of games won by f.b. t.= 40% of x
= 40/100 x (x)
= 2x
According to the Q. : 2x/5 = 10
x = 10 x 5/2
= 25
Therefore, 7 st. are not good in Mathematics.
Q.5 : If Chameli had Rs 600 left after
spending 75% of her money, how much did
she have in the beginning ?
Sol : let the t.money she had in the beginning
was Rs x.
The money she had spent = 75% of Rs x
= 75/100 x (x)
= Rs 3x/4
Money she had left = Rs x – Rs 3x/4
= Rs {x – 3x/4} = Rs x/4
According to the question ;
x / 4 = 600
x = 600 x 4
= Rs 2400
Therefore , the money she had in the
beginning was Rs 2400 .
q.6 : If 60% people in a city like cricket, 30%
like football and the remainig like other
games then what % of the people like other
games ? If the total no. of people are 50
lakh, find the exact no. who like each type
of game ?
Sol :% of p. like o.game = [100 – (60+ 30)%
= (100 – 90) %
= 10 %
Total no. of people = 50 lakh
= 50,00,000
No. of people like cricket = 60 % of 50,00,000
= 60/100 x 50,00,000
= 3,00,000= 3 lakh
No. of people like football = 30% of 50,00,000
= 30/100 x 50,00,000
= 15,00,000 = 15 lakh
No. of like people o. games = 10% of 5000000
= 10/100 x 5000000
= 5,00,000 = 5 lakh
Therefore, 3 lakh people like cricket, 15 lakh
people like football & 5 lakh people like
other games .
Exercise : 8.2
Q.1 : A man got a 10% increase in his
salary . If tis new salary is Rs 1,54,000,
find his original salary ?
Sol : Let his original salary be Rs (x) .
Increase in his salary = 10% of Rs (x)
=10/100 x (x)
= Rs x/10
New salary = o. salary + i. salary
= Rs x + Rs x/10
= Rs 11x/10
According to the question ;
11x/10 = 154000
(x) = 154000 x 10/11
(x) = 1,40,000
Therefore, his original salary is Rs 1,40,000.
Q.2 : On Suday 845 people went to the Zoo.
On Monday 169 people went . What is the
% decrease in the visiting the Zoo on
Monday?
Sol : No. of people went to Zoo on Sunday
= 845 people
No. of people went to Zoo on Monday
= 169 people
Decrease in no. of people visiting the Zoo
= 845 – 169 ( people )
= 676 people
% decrease in the no. of people visiting the Zoo
= 676/845 x 100%
= 80%
Therefore, the % decrea % .se in the people
visiting the Zoo on Monday is
Q.3 : A shopkeeper buys 80 articles for Rs
2,400 and sells them for a profit of 16 %.
Find the selling price of one article ?
Sol : C.P. of 80 articles = Rs 2,400
Profit = 16 % of Rs 2,400
= 16/100 x 2,400
= Rs 384
S.P. of 80 articles = C.P. + Profit
= Rs 2,400 + Rs 384
= Rs 2,784
S.P. of 1 article = Rs 2,784/80
= Rs 34.80
Therefore, the selling price of one article is
Rs 34.80
q.4 : The cost of an article was Rs 15,500,
Rs 450 were spent on its repairs . If it is
sold for a profit of 15%, find the selling price
of the article ?
Sol : C.P. of an article = Rs 15,500 + Rs 450
= Rs 15,950
Profit = 15% of Rs 15,950
= 15/100 x 15,950
=Rs 2,392.50
S.P. of an article = C.P. + Profit
= Rs 15,950 + Rs2,392.50
= Rs 18,342.50
Therefore, the selling price of the article is
Rs 18,342.50
q.5 : A VCR and TV were bought for
Rs 8,000 each. The shopkeeper made a
loss of 4% on the VCR and a 8% on the
TV. Find thegain or loss % on the whole
transaction ?
Sol : Combined C.P. of the both VCR and
TV = Rs 8,000 + Rs 8,000
= Rs 16,000
Loss of 4% on the VCR = 4/100 x 8,000
= Rs 320
S.P. of the VCR = C.P. – Profit
= 8,000 – 320
= Rs 7,680
Profit of 8% on the TV = 8/100 x 8,000
= Rs 640
S.P. of the TV = C.P. + Profit
= 8,000 + 640
= Rs 8,640
Combined S.P. = Rs 7,680 + Rs 640
= Rs 16,320
Gain of the whole transaction = S.P. – C.P.
= Rs 16,320 – Rs 16,000
= Rs 320
Gain % = 320/16,000 x100
= 2%
Therefore, the gain % on the whole
transaction is 2% .
q.6 : During a sale, a shop offered a
discount of 10% on th M.P. of all the
items. What would a customer have to pay
for a pair jeans marked at Rs 1,450 and
two shirts marked at Rs 850 each ?
Sol : M.P. of a pair of Jeans = Rs 1,450
M.P. of a Shirt = Rs 850
M.P. of the two Shirts = Rs (2 x 850)
= Rs 1,700
T.M.P. of a pair of Jeans and Shirts
= Rs 1,450 + Rs 1,700
= Rs 3,150
Discount of 10% = 10/100 x 3,150
= Rs 315
S.P. = T.M.P. – Discount
= Rs 3150 – Rs 315
= Rs 2835
Therefore, the customer will have to pay
Rs 20,000 each for a pair of jeans and
two shirts .
q.7 : A milkman sold two of his buffaloes for
Rs 20,000 each. On one he made a gain of 5%
and on the other a loss of 10%. Find his
overall gain or loss ?
Sol : C.P. of both the two buffaloes be (x)
and (y) .
S.P. of each buffalo = Rs 20,000
C.P. of the first buffalo
= S.P. x 100/100 + 5
= 20,000 x 100/105
= 4,00,000/21
C.P. of the second buffalo
= S.P. x 100/100 – 10
= 20,000 x 100/90
= 2,00,000/9
Over-all loss = C.P. – S.P.
= 4,00,000/21 + 2,00,000/9 – 40,000/1
= 12,00,000 + 14,00,000 – 25,20,000/63
= 80,000/63
= Rs 1,269.84
q.8 : The price of a TV is Rs 13,000. The
sales tax charged on it is at the rate of 12%.
Find the amount that Vinod will have to
pay if he buys it ?
Sol : C.P. of the T.V = Rs 13,000
Sales tax charged on it = 12% of 13,000
= 12/100 x 13,000
= Rs 1,560
S.P. = C.P. + Sales tax
= Rs (13,000 + 1,560) = Rs 14,560
q.9 : Arun bought a pair of skates at a sale
where the discount given was 20%. If the
amount he pays is Rs 1,600, find the
marked price ?
Sol : Let the M.P. be Rs (x) .
Discount of 20% = 20/100 x (x)
= Rs x/5
S.P. = M.P. – Discount
= Rs x – Rs x/5
= Rs 4x/5
According to the question ;
4x/5 = 1,600
x = 1,600 x 5/4
x = Rs 2,000
Therefore, the M.P. of the pair of skates
is Rs 2,000 .
q.10 : I purchased a hair – dryer for Rs
5,400 including 8% VAT. Find the price
before VAT was added ?
Sol : When the price including VAT is
Rs 108 ,
Original price = Rs 100
When price including VAT is Rs 5,400 ,
Original price = Rs 100/108 x 5,400
= Rs 5,000
Therefore, the price before VAT was added
is Rs 5,000
