170

15,300 fx = 29,000

Mean = fx/f = 29,000/200 = Rs.145. [Ans.] Method II Weekly wages in Rs, 80 100 100 120 120 140 140 160 160 180 Total No. of workers fi 20 30 20 40 90 fi = 200 Mid-value xi 90 110 130 = A 150 170 di = xi A 40 20 0 20 40 difi 0 800 0 600 0 800 3600 difi = 3000

L ADB = 90 [angle in a semi-circle is 90, AB is diameter] L ACO = 90 [same reason, OA is diameter] In s ACO and ADB, L ACO = L ADB = 90 L CAO = L DAB [common] Hence, ACO ~ ADB [A A similarity rule] Therefore, OA/AB = OC/BD Or, OA/2OA = OC/BD [AB = 2OC, given] Or, BD = 2OC. [Proved.]

Solution : PRT is tangent at R and RQ is a chord from the contact point, Therefore, L PRQ = L QSR = y [Angle in the alternate segment] and L QRS = 90 [angle in semi-circle is 90 as, QS is a diameter.] In PRS, L SPR +L PRS + LRSP = 180 [sum of angles of a = 180] Or, x + y + 90 + y = 180 Or, x + 2y = 180 90 = 90. [Ans]. Question 7. In the figure given below, O is the centre of the circle and L AOC = 160. Prove that 3Ly 2Lx = 140.

Solution : By arc property of the circle, Lx = 1/2(LAOC) = 1/2(160) = 80 The vertices of the quadrilateral lie on the circle, so it is a cyclic quadrilateral. Therefore, Lx + Ly = 180 Or, 80 + Ly = 180 Or, Ly = 100 Hence, 3Ly 2Lx = 3100 280 = 140. [Proved.] Question 8. A, B and C are three points on a circle. The tangent at C meets BA produced at T. Given that L ATC = 36 and that the L ACT = 48. Calculate the angle subtended by AB at the centre of the circle. Solution :

Let O be the centre of the circle. OA is joined. In TAC, L TAC = 180 (48 + 36) = 96, L CAB = 48 + 36 = 84, Now OC is perpendicular to TC, [C being point of contact]

L OAC = L OCA = 90 48 = 42 [OA = OC, being radii] L OAB = L CAB L OAC = 84 42 = 42, Again AOB is isosceles, L OBA = L OAB = 42 Therefore, L AOB = 180 (42 + 42) = 180 84 = 96. [Ans.] Question 9. In the given figure below, find TP if AT = 16 cm and AB = 12 cm.

Solution :

In s PAT and PBT, L TPB = L PAT [angles in the alternate segment are equal] L ATP is common Therefore, PAT ~ PBT [AA similarity rule] Hence, PT/AT = BT/PT Or, PT2 = ATBT = AT(AT - AB) = 16(16 12) = 64 Or, PT = 64 = 8 cm. [Ans.]

Which is better investment : 7% Rs.100 shares at Rs.120 or 8% Rs.10 shares at Rs.13.50? Solution : Let the investment be Rs.120 13.50 In the first case : As, investment is Rs.120 income is Rs.7 Hence, when investment is Rs.120 13.50 income is (Rs.7 Rs120 13.50)/Rs.120 = Rs.94.50 In the second case : As, investment is Rs.13.50 income is 8% of Rs.10 = Re.0.80 Hence, when investment is Rs.120 13.50 income is (Re.0.80 Rs.120 13.50)/Rs.13.50 = Rs.96.00

Therefore, second investment is better. [Ans.] Question 4. A company with 10000 shares of Rs.100 each, declares an annual dividend of 5%. (i) What is the total amount of dividend paid by the company ? (ii) What would be the annual income of a man, who has 72 shares, in the company ? (iii) If he received only 4% on his investment, find the price he paid for each share. Solution : (i) Dividend per share = 5% of Rs.100 = Rs.5. Dividend paid by the company for 10000 shares = 10000 Rs.5 =Rs.50000. [Ans.] (ii) Annual income of a man for 72 shares = 72 Rs.5 = Rs.360. [Ans.] (iii) Let his investment per share be x. As per question, 4% of x = Rs.5 Or, (4/100) x = Rs.5 Or, x = Rs.5 (100/4) = Rs.125. [Ans.] Question 5. A man invested Rs.45000 in 15% Rs.100 shares quoted at Rs.125. When the market value of these shares rose to Rs.140, he sold some shares, just enough to raise Rs.8400. Calculate : (i) the number of shares he still holds. (ii) the dividend due to him on these shares. Solution : Number of shares which he purchased = Rs.45000/Rs.125 = 360. (i) Let the number of shares he sold be x , As per question, Rs.140 x = Rs.8400 Or, x = Rs.8400 /Rs.140 = 60. Hence number of shares still with him = 360 60 = 300. [Ans.] (ii) Dividend per share = 15% of Rs.100 = Rs.15. Hence dividend for 300 shares = Rs.15 300 = Rs.4500. [Ans.]]

Total principal for 1 month = Rs. 29720.00 = P, T = 1/12, R = 4.5%. Interest = (PRT)/100 = Rs. (297200 4.5 1/12)/100 = Rs. 111.45. Maths - Sales Tax and Value added Tax (Solved) Question 1. Dinesh bought an article for Rs. 374, which included a discount of 15% on the marked price and a sales tax of 10% on the reduced price. Find the marked price of the article. Solution: Let marked price be Rs. x, Discount = 15%, Rate of Sales Tax = 10%. Discount on Rs. x = 15% of x = (15/100) x = 15x/100. Price after discount = x 15x/100 = 85x/100. Sales Tax = 10% of 85x/100 = (10/100)(85x/100) = 85x/1000. Price including sales tax = 85x/100 + 85x/1000 = 935x/1000. As per question, 935x/1000 = Rs. 374 Or, x = Rs. 374(1000/935) = Rs. 400. Hence, marked price = Rs. 400. [Ans.] Question 2. Ms. Chawla goes to a shop to buy a leather coat which costs Rs.735. The rate of sales tax is 5%. She tells the shopkeeper to reduce the price to such an extent that she has to pay Rs.735, inclusive of sales tax. Find the reduction needed in the price of the coat. Solution: Let the reduced price of the coat be Rs.x Sales tax = 5% of x = (5/100) Rs.x = Rs.x/20 Amount paid by Ms Chawla = Rs.(x + x/20) = Rs.21x/20

## As per problem, 21x/20 = 735 Or, x = (20/21) 735 = 700

Reduced price of the coat = Rs.700 Hence, reduction needed = Rs.735 Rs.700 = Rs.35. [Ans.] Question 3. a shopkeeper buys an article at a rebate of 30% on the printed price. He spends Rs.40 on transportation of the article. After charging sales tax at the rate of 7% on the printed price, he sells the article for Rs.856.Find his profit percentage. Solution: Let the printed price of the article be Rs.x. Sales tax = 7% of Rs.x = (7/100) Rs.x = Rs.7x/100. Selling price = Rs.x + Rs.7x/100 = Rs.107x/100. As per question, 107x/100 = 856 or x = (856 100)/107 = 800. Hence, printed price = Rs.800. Rebate = 30% of Rs.800 = (30/100) Rs.800 = Rs.240. Cost price of the article = Rs.800 Rs.240 = Rs.560. Overhead = cost of transportation = Rs.40. Actual cost price = Rs.560 + Rs.40 = Rs.600. Profit = Printed price Actual cost price = Rs.800 Rs.600 = Rs.200. Profit percent = (profit/cost price) 100% = (200/800) 100 = 100/3% = 33(1/3)%. [Ans.] Question 4. The catalogue price of a colour TV is Rs.2400. The shopkeeper gives a discount of 8% on the listed price. He gives a further off-season discount of 5% on the balance. But sales tax at the rate of 10% is charged on the remaining amount. Find : (i) the sales tax amount a customer has to pay. (ii) the final price he has to pay for the colour TV. Solution: Catalogue price = Rs.24000. Discount = 8% of Rs.24000 = (8/100) Rs.24000 = Rs.1920. Price after discount = Rs.24000 Rs.1920 = Rs.22080. Off-season discount = 5% of Rs.22080 = (5/100) Rs.22080 = Rs.1104.

Price after off-season discount = Rs.22080 Rs.1104 = Rs.20976. (i) Sales tax = 10% of Rs.20976 = (10/100) Rs.20976 = Rs.2097.60. [Ans.] (ii) The final price a customer has to pay = Rs.20976 + Rs.2097.60 = Rs.23073.60. [Ans.] Question 5. [VAT] A manufacturer produces a good which cost him Rs.500. He sells it to a wholesaler at a price of Rs.500 and wholesaler sells it to retailer at a price of Rs.600. The retailer sells it to the customer at a price of Rs.800. If the sales tax charged is 5%. Find the tax charged under VAT by : (i) manufacturer, (ii) wholesaler and (iii) retailer. Find the tax paid by the customer. Solution: Cost of production of manufacturer = Cost of wholesaler = Rs.500. Tax charged by manufacturer from wholesaler = 5% of Rs.500 = Rs.25. Cost charged by wholesaler from retailer = Rs.600 Tax charged by the wholesaler = 5% of Rs.600 = Rs.30. Cost charged by retailer from customer = Rs.800. Tax charged by retailer from customer = 5% of Rs.800 = Rs.40. Tax paid to Govt.

The Government collects the same tax at different stages equal to Rs.40. [Ans.] Maths - Compound Interest (Solved) Question 1. Ramesh invests Rs. 12800 for three years at the rate of 10% per annum compound interest. Find : (i) The sum due to Ramesh at the end of the first year. (ii) The interest he earns for the second year. (iii) The total amount due to him at the end of the third year. Solution: Principal = Rs. 12800, Rate = 10%. Interest for one year = (PRT)/100 = (12800 10 1) / 100 = Rs. 1280. (i) Sum due after one year = 12800 + 1280 = Rs. 14080.[Ans.] (ii) Interest for 2 nd year = (14080 10 1) / 100 = Rs. 1408.

Amount after 2 nd year = Rs. 14080 + Rs. 1408 = Rs. 15488. Interest for 3 rd year = (15488 10 1) / 100 = 1548.80. [Ans.] (iii) The amount due after 3 year = 15488 + 1548.80 = Rs. 17036.80. [Ans.] Question 2. A man borrows Rs.5000 at 12% compound interest per annum, interest payable after six months. He pays back Rs.1800 at the end of every six months. Calculate the third payment he has to make at the end of 18 months in order to clear the entire loan. Solution: As 12% is the interest p.a. so half-yearly interest will be 6%. Principal for the first six months = Rs.5000. Interest for the first six months = Rs.(5000 6 1)/100 = Rs.300. Amount after six month = Rs.5000 + Rs.300 = Rs.5300. Money refunded after six months = Rs.1800. Principal for the second six months = Rs.5300 Rs.1800 = Rs.3500. Interest for the second six months = Rs.(3500 6 1)/100 = Rs.210. Amount after second six months = Rs.3500 + Rs.210 = Rs.3710. Money refunded after second six months = Rs.1800. Principal for the third six months = Rs.3710 Rs.1800 = Rs.1910. Interest for the third six months = Rs.(1910 6 1)/100 = Rs.114.60. Hence payment he has to make after 18 months to clear the entire loan = Rs.1910 + Rs.114.60 = Rs.2024.60 [Ans] Question 3. A man invests Rs.5000 for three years at a certain rate of interest, compounded annually. At the end of one year it amounts to Rs.5600. Calculate : (i) the rate of interest per annum. (ii) the interest occurred in the second year. (iii) the amount at the end of the third year. Solution: Here, P = Rs.5000, A = Rs.5600, n = 1, r = ? (i) Using A = P (1 + r/100)n, Rs.5600 = Rs.5000 (1 + r/100)1 or, 5600/5000 = 1 + r/100 or, 56/50 = 1 + r/100

or, r/100 = 56/50 1 = 6/50 or, r = (6 100)/50 = 12 % p.a. [Ans.] (ii) Interest occurred in the second year, I = PRT/100 = (Rs.5600 12 1)/100 = Rs. 672.[Ans.] (iii) Amount at the end of three years, Using A = P (1 + r/100)n, where, P= Rs.5000, r = 12%, n = 3. A = Rs.5000 (1 + 12/100)3 = Rs.(5000 112 112 112)/1000000 = Rs.7024.64. [Ans.] Question 4. The compound interest on a certain sum of money at 5% per annum for two years is Rs.246. Calculate the simple interest on the same sum for three years at 6% per annum. Solution: Using C.I. = P [(1 + r/100)n 1], we get Rs.246 = P [(1 + 5/100)2 1] Or, Rs.246 = P [(21/20)(21/20) 1] = P (41/400) Or, P = Rs.(246 400)/41 = Rs.2400. Now, P = Rs.2400, r = 6% p.a., t = 3 years Using S.I = Prt/100, S.I. = Rs.(2400 6 3)/100 = Rs.432. [Ans.] Question 5. On a certain sum of money, the difference between the compound interest for a year, payable half-yearly, and the simple interest for a year is Rs.180. Find the sum lent out, if the rate of interest in both the cases is 10%. Solution: Let the principal, P = Rs.x, r = 10%, t = 1 year Using S.I. = Prt/100, S.I. = Rs.(x 10 1)/100 = Rs.x/10 No of conversion period, n = 2 1 = 2, r = 10%/2 = 5% per conversion period, P = x, Using C.I. = P [(1 + r/100)n 1], C.I. = Rs.x [(1 + 5/100)2 1] = Rs.x(21/20 21/20 1)

= Rs.x(441/400 1) = Rs.(41/400)x. As per problem, C.I. S.I. = Rs.180 Or, Rs.(41/400)x Rs.x/10 = 180 Or, Rs.(41/400 1/10)x = 180 Or, Rs.x/400 = 180 Or, x = Rs.180 400 = Rs.7200. [Ans.] Question 6. A certain sum amounts to Rs.5292 in 2 years and to Rs.5556.60 in 3 years at compound interest. Find the rate and the sum. Solution: Here, Rs.5556.60 Rs.5292 = Rs.264.60 = Interest for 1 year on Rs.5292. i.e. P = 5292, t = 1 year, S.I. = Rs.264.60, r = ? Using, S.I. = prt/100 264.60 = (5292 r 1)/100 or, r = (264.60 100)/5292 = 5% 2nd part : Let P = x, A = 5292, t = 2 years, n = 2, r = 5% p.a. Using, A = P(1 + r/100)n 5292 = x (1 + 5/100)2 or, 5292 = x (105/100)2 = x (2121)/(2020) or, 5292 = x (441/400) or, x = (5292400)/441 = 4800 Hence, rate = 5% and the sum = Rs.4800. [Ans.] Question 7. The cost of car, purchased 2 years ago, depreciates at the rate of 20% every year. If its present worth is Rs.315600, find : (i) its purchase price (ii) its value after 4 years. Solution: (i) Here, V = present value = Rs315600, t = 2 years, r = 20%, V0 = purchase price = ?

Using V = V0(1 r /100)n, 315600 = V0 (1 20/100)2 or, 315600 = V0 (80/100)2 = V0 (44) (55) =V0(16/25) or, V0 = 31560025/16 = Rs.493125. [Ans.] (ii) Again, V0 = Rs.493125, V = value after 4 years, t = 4years, n = 4, r = 20%. Using, V = V0(1 r /100)n V = 493125 (1 20/100)4 = 493125 (80/100)4 = 493125 (256/625) = Rs.201884. [Ans.]
