A radio when sold at a certain price gives a gain of 20%. What will be the gain percent, if sold for thrice the price?
E) None of these
Sol. Let x be original cost of the radio.
The solding price = (100+20)x=120x

So, gain percent is (360-100)=260%.
If the Arithmetic mean is 34 and geometric mean is 16 then what is greates number in that series of numbers?
Sol. Let two numbers be x, y;
Arthmetic mean=34=>( x+y)/2=34
geometric mean=16=>(xy)pow 1/2=16
By trail and error 16*16=64*4
So the greatest number int hat series is 64.
The diameter of the driving wheel of a bus is 140cm. How many revolutions per minute must the wheel make in order to keep a speed of 66 kmph?
