Solution
1.The total sales (in thousands) of all the seven years for various batteries are:
For, 4AH = 75 + 90 + 96 + 105 + 90 + 105 + 115 = 676
For, 7AH = 144 + 126 + 114 + 90 + 75 + 60 + 85 = 694
For, 32AH = 114 + 102 + 75 + 150 + 135 + 165 + 160 = 901
For, 35AH = 102 + 84 + 105 + 90 + 75 + 45 + 100 = 601
For, 55AH = 108 + 126 + 135 + 75 + 90 + 120 + 145 = 799
clearly, sales are maximum in case of 32AH batteries.

2.Required difference = [(84  ̶  45) × 1000] = 39000

3.For, 1992 = (75/543) × 100 = 13.81%
For, 1993 = (90/528) × 100 = 17.05%
For, 1994 = (96/525) × 100 = 18.29%
For, 1995 = (105/510) × 100 = 20.59%
For, 1996 = (96/465) × 100 = 19.35%
For, 1997 = (105/495) × 100 = 21.21%
For, 1998 = (115/605) × 100 = 19.01%

4.From the table it is clear that the sales of 7AH batteries have been decreasing continuously from 1992 to 1997.

5.Required % = [(145  ̶  108) / 108] × 100 = 34.26% ≈ 34%

6.Let the population of village X be x.
Then, 38% of x = 12160
Or, x = (12160 × 100)/38 = 32000
Now, if s be the population of village S,
then 16 : 11 = 32000 : s
Or, s = ( 11 × 32000)/16 = 22000

7.let N be the total population of all the seven villages.
Then, population of village T below poverty line = 46% of (21% of N) and
population of village Z below poverty line = 42% of (11% of N)
so, required ratio = 46% of (21% of N) : 42% of (11% of N)
= (46 × 21) : (42 × 11)
= 23 : 11

8.Population of village R = 32000 (given)
Let the population of village Y be y.
Then, 16 : 15 = 32000 : y
Or, y = (15 × 32000)/16 = 30000
So, population of village Y below poverty line = 52% of 30000 = 15600

9.Population of village Y in 1997 = 30000 (given)
Let the population of village V be v.
Then, 15 : 10 = 30000 : v
Or, v = (10 × 30000)/15 = 20000
Now, population of village V in 1998 = 20000 + (10% of 20000) = 22000
So, population of village V below poverty line in 1998 = 58% of 22000 = 12760

10.Let the total population of all the seven villages in 1997 be N.
Then, population of village R in 1997 = 16% of N = 16N/100 and
Population of village Z in 1997 = 11% of N = 11N/100.
So, population of village R in 1999 = [(16N/100) + {10% of (16N/100)}] = 1760N/10000 And population of village Z in 1999 = [(11N/100)  ̶  {5% of (11N/100)}] = 1045N/10000
Now, population of village R below poverty line for 1999 = 51% of (1760N/10000) And
population of village Z below poverty line for 1999 = 42% of (1045N/10000)
So, required ratio = 51% of (1760N/10000) : 42% of (1045N/10000)
≈ 2 : 1
