9.c)

10.a)

__Solution__now, 2x + y + x = 18

or, 3x + y = 18.....(ii)

When the digits are reversed, number = 100(x) + 10y + 2x = 102x + 10y....(iii)

so, 201x + 10y - 102x - 10y = 396

or, x = 4

From eqn (i)

3 × 4 + y = 18

or, y = 6

Required difference = 2x - y = 2 × 4 - 6 = 2

2.Number = xyxyxy

= xy × 10000 + xy × 100 + xy

= xy (10000 + 100 + 1)

= xy × 10101

3.First number × second number = HCF × LCM

or, 864 × second number = 96 × 1296

or, second number = (96 × 1296)/864 = 144

4.Sum of the interior angles of a regular polygon of 'n' sides = (2n - 4) × 90°

Therefore, (2n - 4) × 90° = 1080°

or, n = 8

5.Lateral surface area of the cylinder = 2πrh = 2 × 22/7 × 7/2 × 16 = 352 sq.cm

6.Man : Woman (efficiency) = 3 : 2

i.e, woman completes 2/5th work in 18 days.

Therefore, time taken by the woman to complete the whole work = (18 × 5)/2 = 45 days

7.Single equivalent discount for 20% and 15% = [20 + 15 - {(20 × 15)/100}] = 32%

single equivalent discount for 32% and 10% = [32 + 10 - {(32 × 10)/100}] = 38.8%

8.SP for a profit of 12% = (8000 × 112)/100 = Rs.8960

Therefore, discount = 11200 - 8960 = Rs.2240

If the discount percent be x,

then (11200 × x)/100 = 2240 or, x = 20%

9.Sugar in original solution = (75 × 30)/100 = 22.5gm

Let, xgm of sugar be mixed.

so, (22.5 + x)/(75 + x) × 100 = 70

or, x = 3000/30 = 100gm

10.Rate of downstream = 10 kmph

Rate of upstream = 5 kmph

so, speed of the current = 1/2 (10 - 5) = 2.5 kmph
