#### Question No 2

Sushil was thrice as old as Snehal 6 years back. Sushil will be time as old as Snehal 6 years hence. How old is Snehal today.

Solution!
let Snehal's age 6 years back =x
content, sushil's age 6 years back = 3x
(5 / 3)( x + 6 + 6 = (3 x + 6 + 6)
so 5 (x + 12 )= 3(3 X + 12)
so x = 6, Sanaya age = x+ 6
years = 12 years
.

#### Question No 3

#### Question No 6

A and B can do a job in 6 days. A is 6/4 times as efficient as B. The same job can be done by A alone.

(A's 1 day works)/(B's 1 day work)=6/4
Let A's and B's 1 day's be 6x and 4x respectively.
6x+4x=1/6
10x=1/6
x=1/60
A's 1 day work=(1/60*6)=1/10

#### Question No 25

An equilateral triangle is surrounded by three squares, as shown. What is the value of x?

Solution!
We have labeled the diagram to help explain this answer. PR = RS because they are sides of a square, and RS = RT because they are sides of an equilateral triangle. RQ = RT because they are also sides of a square. Therefore RQ = PR. And because RQ and PR are sides of an isosceles triangle, angle RPQ = angle RQP. Right now remember that angles of a triangle totaled equals 180Â°. And angles of a square are all 90Â° and angles of an equilateral triangle are all 60Â°. Following? Good. So all the angles at point R must equal 360Â°. Soâ€¦ Angle PRQ = 360 â€“ (90 + 90 + 60) = 120. Therefore x = (360 â€“ 120) / 2 = 30.

#### Question No 26

There are a total of 42 computers . Each computer runs one of three operating systems: OSX ,Windows ,Linux .The ratio  of the computers running OSX ,Windows, Linux  is 2:5:7. Find the number of computers that are running each of the operating systems.

Solution!
Let's x is the ratio between them
Then,
2x+ 5 x + 7 x = 42
14 x = 42
x = 42 / 14
X = 3
2 x = 2 ( 3) = 6 OSX
5 x = 5 ( 3) = 15 Windows
7 x = 7 x(3) = 21 Linux
