(a) 35:24
(b) 41:30
(c) 35:32
(d) 36:25
(e) 24:25
8. In the village A, 75% of the actual registered voters were male registered voters and that of actual female registered voters was 1400, what was the total population of village A?
(a) 5000
(b) 7200
(c) 7500
(d) 6400
(e) 5200
9. In village B, the voter’s turnout was 36% of the total population. The voter’s turnout in village B was what percent of actual registered voters?
(a) 60%
(b) 65%
(c) 70%
(d) 80%
(e) 75%
10. Total population of village C was 12500 and the voter’s turnout was 80% of the actual registered voters. What was the voters’ turnout in village C?
(a) 7500
(b) 7200
(c) 6400
(d) 6000
(e) 8000
Solutions:
1. (e), let, female number of students dropped out = x
Then, according to the question, [(350-90)+(200-x)]*25/100 = (350+200)*16/100
Then on solving we get x= 108
2. (d), according to the question, [(9x-30) + (8x-60)] = 4x+3x
Or, 10x= 90
So x = 9
Therefore number of total students (male +female) = 3x+4x = 7x = 7*9 = 63
3. (e), let, total enrolled students (male + female) = x
Number of students dropped out (male + female) = 3x/11
Therefore number of students (male + female) who complete the course = x-3x/11 = 8x/11
Therefore the percentage of students (male + female) who completed the course and got job = (8x/11)/x * 100% = 800/11% = 72.72%
4. (a), let the number of enrolled male students from city C = x
And number of enrolled female students from city C = y
Percentage of number of students who got the job = number of students
25% = 96 => 1% = 96/25 => 100% = 96/25 * 100 = 384
Therefore number of total students (male + female) who complete the course = 384
Now, total number of enrolled students (male + female) = 384+52+20 = 456
According to the question, x+y = 456 and (x-52) = (y-20)
So equating both equation, we get x =244
Hence, number of enrolled male students from city C = 244
5. (e), total number of students (male + female) enrolled from city B = 270+210 = 480
Now, number of students who got the job = 480*40/100 = 192
But in these 192 students include the students also who dropped out.
Therefore required number of students (male + female) who got the job = 192-(33+32) = 127
6. (b), percentage of number of eligible voters in the village D, in the year 2015 = 60% + 20% = 80%
Number of actual voter registered in the year 2015 = 75%*80 = 60%
Required % = 60-60/60 * 100 = 0%
7. (a), let the population of village D= x
And the population of village E = y
Now, according to the question,
𝑥 60% 60% = 𝑦 70% 75%
On solving we get x/y = 35/24
8. (a), let the population of village A = x
Now according to the question,
𝑥 80% 70% 75% 𝑥 80% 70% 25% = 1400
Or, x*56/100 * ½ = 1400
On solving we get x = 5000
9. (a), let the total population of village B = x
Now according to the question, 𝑥 60% 80% = 36%
Then on solving x =6/8
Now the percentage = 6/8*80% = 60%
10. (b), no of voters turnout in village = 12500 × 80/100 × 90/100 × 80/100 = 7200
