#### Ten years ago, P was half of Q's age. If the ratio of their present ages is 3:4, what will be the total of their present ages?

Explanation:
Let present age of P and Q be 3x3x and 4x4x respectively.
Ten years ago, P was half of Q's age
⇒ (3x−10) =1/2(4x−10)
⇒6x−20=4x−10
⇒2x=10
⇒x=5
Total of their present ages
=3x+4x=7x=7×5=35

#### In the first 10 overs of a cricket game, the run rate was only 3.2. What should be the run rate in the remaining 40 overs to reach the target of 282 runs?

Explanation:
Runs scored in the first 10 overs = 10 × 3.2 = 32
Total runs = 282
Remaining runs to be scored = 282 - 32 = 250
Remaining overs = 40
Run rate needed = 250/40=6.25

#### A man's speed with the current is 15 km/hr and the speed of the current is 2.5 km/hr. The man's speed against the current is:

Explanation:
Man's speed with the current = 15 km/hr
=> speed of the man + speed of the current = 15 km/hr
speed of the current is 2.5 km/hr
Hence, speed of the man = 15 - 2.5 = 12.5 km/hr
man's speed against the current = speed of the man - speed of the current
= 12.5 - 2.5 = 10 km/hr
