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?
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)
Total of their present ages
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?
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
To harvest something, one must have a crop, which is the essential element for this item.
Autumn (choice a) is not the only time crops are harvested. There may not be enough of a Crop to stockpile (choice b), and you can harvest crops without a tractor (choice c).
Here are some words translated from an artificial language.
hapllesh means cloudburst
srenchoch means pinball
resbosrench means ninepin
Which word could mean "cloud nine"?
Hapl means cloud; lesh means burst; srench means pin; och means ball; and resbo means nine. Leshsrench(choice a) doesn't contain any of the words needed for cloud nine. We know that och means ball, so that rules out choices b and c.When you combine hapl(cloud) with resbo (nine), you get the correct answer.
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:
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
