Answer:

Try These (Text Book Page No. 124)

Question 1.

What percentage ola day is 10 hours?

Answer:

In a day, there are 24 hours .

∴ 10 hrs out of 24 hrs is \(\frac{10}{24}\)

As a percentage, we need to multiply by 100

∴ Percentage = \(\frac{10}{24}\) × 100 = 41.67%

Question 2.

Divide ₹ 350 among P, Q and R such that P gets 50% of what Q gets and Q gets 50% of what R gets.

Answer:

Let R get x, Q gets 50% of what R gets

∴ Q gets = \(\frac{50}{100} \times x=\frac{x}{2}\)

P gets 50% of what Q gets .

∴ P gets = \(\frac{50}{100} \times \frac{x}{2}=\frac{x}{4}\)

Since 350 is divided among the three

∴ 350 = \(x+\frac{x}{2}+\frac{x}{4}\)

350 = \(\frac{4 x+2 x+x}{4}=\frac{7 x}{4}\) = 350

x = \(\frac{350 \times 4}{7}\)

Q gets = \(\frac{x}{2}=\frac{200}{2}\) = 100,

P gets = \(\frac{x}{4}=\frac{200}{4}\) = 50

∴ p = 50, Q = 100, R = 200

With a lot of pride, the traffic police commissioner of a city reported that the accidents had decreased by 200% in one year. He came up with this number by stating that the increase in accidents from 200 to 600 is clearly a 200% rise and now that it had gone down from 600 last year to 200 this year should be a 200% fall. Is this decrease from 600 to 200, the same 200% as reported by him? Justify.

Answer:

Increase from original value 200 to 600

Decrease from original value 600 to 200

here original value is 600

% decrease = \(\frac{600-200}{600}\) × 100 = \(\frac{400}{600}\) × 100 = 66.67 % decrease

Increase from 200 → 600 and % decrease from 600 → 200 are not the same

A shopkeeper marks the price of a marker board 15% above the cost price and then allows a discount of 15% on the marked price. Does he gain or lose in the transaction?

Answer:

Let cost price of marker board be 100

CP = 100 Marks it 15% above CP

∴ Marked price MP = \(\frac{15}{100}\) × CP + CP

= \(\frac{15}{100}\) × 100 + 100 = 15 + 100 = 115

Discount % = 15 %

∴ He sells it 97.75 which is less than his cost price. Therefore he loses

Loss = 97.75 – 100 = – 2.25

Question 1.

Classify the given examples as direct or inverse proportion:

(i) Weight of pulses to their cost.

Answer:

As weight increases cost also increases.

∴ Weight and cost are direct proportion.

(ii) Distance travelled by bus to the price of ticket.

Answer:

As the distance increases price to travel also increases,

∴ Distance and price are direct proportion.

(iii) Speed of the athelete to cover a certain distance.

Answer:

As the speed increases, the time to cover the distance become less.

So speed and üme are in indirect proportion.

(iv) Number of workers employed to complete a construction in a specified time.

Answer:

As the number of workers increases, the amount of work become less, so they are in indirect proportion.

(v) Area of a circle to its radius.

Answer:

If the radius of the circle increases its area also increases.

∴ Area and radius of circles are direct proportion.

Question 2.

A student can type 21 pages in 15 minutes. At the same rate, how long will it take student to type 84 pages?

Answer:

Direct proportion

No. of minutes = x

k = \(\frac{21}{15}\)

\(\frac{21}{15}=\frac{84}{x}\)

Question 3.

If 35 women can do a piece of work in 16 days, In how many days will 28 women do the same work?

Answer:

Inverse proportion

No. of days = x

k = 35 × 16

∴ 28 × x = 35 × 16

Question 1.

If x and y vary directly, find k when x = y = 5.

Answer:

I If x andy vary directly then \(\frac{x}{y}\) = k.

Here x = 5; y = 5

∴ k = \(\frac{5}{5}\)

k = 1

Question 2.

If x and y vary inversely, find the constant of proportionality when x = 64 and y = 0.75

Answer:

Gìven x = 64, y = 0.75

and also given x andy vary inversely.

∴ xy = k. the constant of variation.

∴ Constant = 64 × 0.75

Constant of variation = 48

Draw a circle of a given radius. Then, draw its radii in such a way that the angles between any two consecutive pair of radii are equal. Start drawing 3 radii and end with drawing 12 radii in the circle. List and prepare a table for the number of radii to the angle between a pair of consecutive radii and check whether they are in inverse proportion. What is the proportionality constant?

Answer:

As the number of radii increases angle decreases.

Hence they are in inverse proportion

∴ xy = 4 proportional constant

3 × 120° = 360° = k = 360°

Identify the different variations present in the following questions:

Question 1.

24 men can make 48 articles in 12 days. Then, 6 men can make _____ articles in 6 days.

Answer:

Let the required no. of articles be x

Men (P) | Days (D) | Articles (W) |

24 | 12 | 48 |

6 | 6 | x |

(i) Mens and days are Indirect variables.

(ii) Men and Articles are direct vanables

(iii) Days and articles are also direct variables using formula.

Let

P_{1} = 24

P_{2} = 6

D_{1} = 12

D_{2} = 6

W_{1} = 48

W_{1} = x

x = 6 Articles

Question 2.

15 workers can lay a road of length 4 km in 4 hours. Then, _____ workers can lay a road of length 8 km in 8 hours.

Answer:

Let the required no. of workers be x

Length (work) | Hours | Workers |

4 km | 4 hrs | 15 |

8 km | 8 hrs | x |

(i) Length and workers are direct variable as more length need more workers.

The proportion is 4 : 8 : : 15 : x ——– (1)

(ü) Hours and workers are indirect variables as more working hours need less men.

∴ The proportion is : 4 : : 15 : x ——– (2)

Combining (1) and (2)

Product of the extremes = Product of the mean

4 × 8 × x = 8 × 4 × 15

x = \(\frac{8 \times 4 \times 15}{4 \times 8}\)

x = 15 workers

Question 3.

25 women working 12 hours a day can complete a work in 36 days. Then, 20 women must work hours a day to complete the same work in 30 days.

Answer:

Let the required hours be x.

Women | Days | Hours |

25 | 36 | 12 |

20 | 30 | x |

As women increases hours to work decreases

∴ It is an inverse proportion.

∴ Multiplying factor is \(\frac{25}{20}\)

As days increases hours needed become less

∴ It is also an indirect variation.

∴ Multiplying factor is \(\frac{36}{30}\)

∴ x = \(12 \times \frac{25}{20} \times \frac{36}{30}\)

x = 18 hours

Question 4.

In a camp there are 420 kg of rice sufficient for 98 persons for 45 days. The number of days that 60 kg of rice will last for 42 persons is .

Answer:

Let the required number of days be x.

Rice (kg) | Men | Days |

420 | 98 | 45 |

60 | 42 | x |

If amount of rice is more it will last for more days;

∴ It is Direct Proportion

∴ Multiplying factor is \(\frac{60}{420}\)

If men increases number of days the rice lasts decreases

∴ It is an inverse proportion.

∴ Multiplying factor is \(\frac{98}{42}\)

x = \(45 \times \frac{60}{420} \times \frac{98}{42}\)

x = 15 days

Question 1.

Vikram can do one-third of work in p days. He can do th of work In ________ days.

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{3}\) of the work will be done mp days.

∴ Full work will be completed in 3p days

\(\frac{3}{4}\) th of the work will be done in = 3p x \(\frac{3}{4}\)

= \(\frac{9}{4}\)p = 2\(\frac{1}{4}\) p days.

Question 2.

If m persons can complete a work in n days, then 4m persons can complete the same

work in ______ days and \(\frac{m}{4}\) persons can complete the same work in ______ days.

Answer:

Givenm persons complete a work in n days

(i) Then work measured in terms of Man days = mn

4 m men do the work it will be completed in \(\frac{m n}{4 m}\) days = \(\frac{m}{4}\) days.
