Son’s age = 30 + 3 = 33 years

Question no – (28)

Solution :

5 years ago,

son’s age = x

Father’s age = 7x

Present age –

Son’s age = x + 5

Father’s age = 7x + 5

After 5 years,

Son’s age = x + 5 + 5 = x + 10

Father’s age = 7x + 5 + 5 = 7x + 10

According to questions,

= 7x + 10 3 (x + 10)

or, 7x + 10 = 3x + 30

or, 7x – 3x = 30 – 10 = 20

or, 4x = 20

or, x = 20/4 = 5

Present age of son = 5 + 5 = 10

∴ Present age of Father’s

= 7 × 5 + 5

= 40 years

Question no – (29)

Solution :

Let, Mamta’s age = x

After 12 years Mamta’s age = x + 2

= 12

Question no – (30)

Solution :

Let, present age of son1 = x

present age of son2 = y

present age of fathers = 3 (x + y)

24 years father of son1 = x + 24

24 years father of son2 = y + 24

24 years son fathers = 3 (x + y) + 24

According to questions,

= 3 (x + y) + 24 = (x + 24) + (y + 24)

or, 3x + 3y + 24 = x + 24 + y + 24

or, 3x + x + 3y – y = 24

or, 2x + 2y = 24

or, 2(x + y) = 24

or, x + y = 24/2 = 12

Present age of father = 3 (x + y)

= 3 × 12

= 36 years

Question no – (31)

Let, total property = x

Property for boy = x/3

Property for daughter = x/4

rest property for with = x – (x/3 + x/4)

= x – (4x + 3x/12) = x – 7x/12

= 12x – 7x/12 = 5x/12

According to question,

= 5x/12 = 3200

or, x = 32000 × 12/5

= 76800

Therefore, the value of his property will be 76800 Rs.

(i) and (ii)

x + y = 90

x + 0.50y = 50
———————————————–
0.50y = 40

or, y = 40/0.550 = 80

x = 90 – 90 = 10

x = 10, y = 80

Question no – (36)

Solution :

Quality of lead of 78 kg = 78 × 67/100

Let of lead = 2613 + x

let of alloy = 78 + x

According to question,

= 26.73 + x/78 + x

= 60/100

= 3/5

or, 234 + 3x = 130.65-5x

or, 5x – 3x = 234 – 130.65

or, 2x = 103.35

or, x = 103.35/2

= 51.67 kg

Question no – (37)

Solution :

Quality of lead of 50 kg = 50 × 60/100 = 300 kg

Let, of lead = (30 + x)

Let, of lead alloy = (50 + x)

Lead% of new allow = 30 + x/50 + x × 100

According to questions

= 30 + x/50 + x = 70/100

= 3/4

or, 120 + 4x = 150 + 3x

or, 4x – 3x = 150 – 120 = 30

or, x = 30 kg

Question no – (38)

Solution :

Let, no of day labourer work = x

Number of day labourer absent = 30 – x

Amount to days he worked = 100x

Amount to days cut for absence = 20 (30 – x)

= 600 – 20x

According to questions –

= 100x – (600 – 20x) = 2040

or, 100x – 600 + 20x = 2040

or, 120x = 2040 + 600 = 2640

or, x = 2040/120 = 22 days

Day of absence = 30 – 22

= 8 days

Question no – (39)

Solution :

Let, no of goats = x;

Number of hens = y

We know that = x + y = 60 – (i)

Total legs = legs of goats + legs to knows

= 4x + 2y

Again 4x + 20y = 190

or, 2(2x + y) = 190

= 2x + x = 95 = 95 – (ii)

(ii) – (i)

2x + y = 95

x + y = 60
————————————-
x = 35

y = 60 – 35 = 25

Goats = 35

Hens = 25
