A movie theatre sold 5 times as many children's tickets as adult tickets to an afternoon show. If 132 tickets were sold in all, how many were children's tickets?

Adult tickets : X

Children ticket: 5 x

5 x + X = 132

6 X = 132

x = 132/6

X = 22

Children tickets: 5 x

5(22 )= 110

A person travel at the rate of 60 miles per hour and cover 300 miles in 5 hours. If he reducing is paid by 10 miles per hour how long will it take to cover the same distance?

Original speed= 60 miles per hour

If the speed is reduced by 10 miles per hour.

Then the new speed= 50 miles per hour

Distance to be covered= 300 miles

Time= distance/speed

Time=300/50

Time=6 hr

In following questions, one term in number series is incorrect.

Find out the incorrect number 10, 14, 28, 32, 64, 68, 132

Find out the incorrect number 10, 14, 28, 32, 64, 68, 132

Alternately, the numbers are increased by four and doubled to get the next number>

Thus, 10 + 4 = 14;

14 * 2 = 28;

28 + 4 = 32;

32 * 2 =64 and so on.

So, 132 is wrong and must be replaced by (68 * 2) i.e. 136..

In a class of 80 students 40 are taking French 20 are taking German. Of the students taking French or German 9 are taking both courses how many students are not enrolled in either course

German taking students:20

French taking students:40

Both taking students:9

= German + French - both

= 20 + 40 - 9

=51

= total student - enrolled student

=80-51=29

So 29 students are not enrolled.
