#### Question 13

The work done by (x – 2) men in (4x + 1) days and the work done by (4x + 1) men in (2x – 3) days are in the ratio 3: 8. Find the value of x.

#### Answer 13

Assuming that all the men do the same amount of work in one day and one day work of each man = 1 units, we have,

Amount of work done by (x – 2) men in (4x + 1) days

= Amount of work done by (x – 2)(4x + 1) men in one day

= (x – 2)(4x + 1) units of work

Similarly,

Amount of work done by (4x + 1) men in (2x – 3) days

= (4x + 1)(2x – 3) units of work

According to the given information,

#### Question 14

The bus fare between two cities is increased in the ratio 7: 9. Find the increase in the fare, if:

(i) the original fare is Rs 245;

(ii) the increased fare is Rs 207.

#### Answer 14

According to the given information,

Increased (new) bus fare = 9/7 x original bus fare

(i) We have:

Increased (new) bus fare =9/7 x Rs 245 = Rs 315

Increase in fare = Rs 315 – Rs 245 = Rs 70

(ii) We have:

Rs 207 = 9/7 x original bus fare

Original bus fare =

Increase in fare = Rs 207 – Rs 161 = Rs 46

#### Question 15

By increasing the cost of entry ticket to a fair in the ratio 10: 13, the number of visitors to the fair has decreased in the ratio 6: 5. In what ratio has the total collection increased or decreased?

#### Answer 15

Let the cost of the entry ticket initially and at present be 10 x and 13x respectively.

Let the number of visitors initially and at present be 6y and 5y respectively.

Initially, total collection = 10x 6y = 60 xy

At present, total collection = 13x 5y = 65 xy

Ratio of total collection = 60 xy: 65 xy = 12: 13

Thus, the total collection has increased in the ratio 12: 13.

#### Question 16

#### Answer 16

Let the original number of oranges and apples be 7x and 13x.

According to the given information,

Thus, the original number of oranges and apples are 7 x 5 = 35 and 13x 5 = 65 respectively.

#### Answer 32

**Selina Solution of Chapter 7 – Ratio and Proportion Concise Maths Exercise 7-(B)**

#### Question 1

Find the fourth proportional to:

(i) 1.5, 4.5 and 3.5 (ii) 3a, 6a^{2} and 2ab^{2}

#### Answer 1

(i) Let the fourth proportional to 1.5, 4.5 and 3.5 be x.

⇒ 1.5 : 4.5 = 3.5 : x

so ⇒ 1.5 x = 3.5 4.5

Hence⇒ x = 10.5

(i) Let the fourth proportional to 3a, 6a^{2} and 2ab^{2} be x.

⇒ 3a : 6a^{2} = 2ab^{2} : x

and ⇒ 3a x = 2ab^{2} 6a^{2}

so ⇒ 3a x = 12a^{3}b^{2}

Hence ⇒ x = 4a^{2}b^{2}

#### Question 2

Find the third proportional to:

(i) 2 2/3 and 4 (ii) a – b and a^{2} – b^{2}

#### Answer 2

(i) Let the third proportional to 2 and 4 be x.

⇒ 2 2/3 , 4, x are in continued proportion.

⇒ 2 2/3 : 4 = 4 : x

(ii) Let the third proportional to a – b and a^{2} – b^{2} be x.

⇒ a – b, a^{2} – b^{2}, x are in continued proportion.

⇒ a – b : a^{2} – b^{2} = a^{2} – b^{2} : x

#### Question 3

Find the mean proportional between:

(i) 6 + 3 and 8 – 4

(ii) a – b and a^{3} – a^{2}b

#### Answer 3

(i) Let the mean proportional between 6 + 3 and 8 – 4 be x.

6 + 3, x and 8 – 4 are in continued proportion.

6 + 3 : x = x : 8 – 4

x x x = (6 +3 ) (8 – 4 )

x^{2 }= 48 + 24– 24 – 36

and x^{2 }= 12

x= 2

(ii) Let the mean proportional between a – b and a^{3} – a^{2}b be x.

a – b, x, a^{3} – a^{2}b are in continued proportion.

a – b : x = x : a^{3} – a^{2}b

x x = (a – b) (a^{3} – a^{2}b)

x^{2} = (a – b) a^{2}(a – b) = [a(a – b)]^{2}

x = a(a – b)

#### Question 4

If x + 5 is the mean proportional between x + 2 and x + 9; find the value of x.

#### Answer 4

Given, x + 5 is the mean proportional between x + 2 and x + 9.

(x + 2), (x + 5) and (x + 9) are in continued proportion.

and (x + 2) : (x + 5) = (x + 5) : (x + 9)

so (x + 5)^{2} = (x + 2)(x + 9)

Therefore x^{2} + 25 + 10x = x^{2} + 2x + 9x + 18

25 – 18 = 11x – 10x

Hence x = 7

#### Question 5

If x^{2}, 4 and 9 are in continued proportion, find x.

#### Answer 5

#### Question 6

What least number must be added to each of the numbers 6, 15, 20 and 43 to make them proportional?

#### Answer 6

Thus, the required number which should be added is 3.

#### Question 7

#### Answer 7

#### Question 8

#### Answer 8

#### Question 9

#### Answer 9

#### Question 10

What least number must be subtracted from each of the numbers 7, 17 and 47 so that the remainders are in continued proportion?

#### Answer 10

Let the number subtracted be x.

(7 – x) : (17 – x) :: (17 – x) (47 – x)

Thus, the required number which should be subtracted is 2.

#### Question 11

If y is the mean proportional between x and z; show that xy + yz is the mean proportional between x^{2}+y^{2} and y^{2}+z^{2}.

#### Answer 11

Since y is the mean proportion between x and z

Therefore, y^{2 }= xz

Now, we have to prove that xy+yz is the mean proportional between x^{2}+y^{2} and y^{2}+z^{2}, i.e.,

LHS = RHS

Hence, proved.

#### Question 12

If q is the mean proportional between p and r, show that:

pqr (p + q + r)^{3} = (pq + qr + rp)^{3}.

#### Answer 12

Given, q is the mean proportional between p and r.

q^{2} = pr

#### Question 13

If three quantities are in continued proportion; show that the ratio of the first to the third is the duplicate ratio of the first to the second.

#### Answer 13

Let x, y and z be the three quantities which are in continued proportion.

Then, x : y :: y : z y^{2} = xz ….(1)

Now, we have to prove that

x : z = x^{2 }: y^{2}

That is we need to prove that

xy^{2 }= x^{2}z

LHS = xy^{2} = x(xz) = x^{2}z = RHS [Using (1)]

Hence, proved.

#### Question 14

If y is the mean proportional between x and z, prove that:

#### Answer 14

Given, y is the mean proportional between x and z.

y^{2} = xz

#### Question 15

Given four quantities a, b, c and d are in proportion. Show that:

#### Answer 15

LHS = RHS

#### Question 16

Find two numbers such that the mean mean proportional between them is 12 and the third proportional to them is 96.

#### Answer 16

Let a and b be the two numbers, whose mean proportional is 12.

Now, third proportional is 96

Therefore, the numbers are 6 and 24.

#### Question 17

Find the third proportional to

#### Answer 17

Let the required third proportional be p.

, p are in continued proportion.

#### Question 18

If p: q = r: s; then show that:

mp + nq : q = mr + ns : s.

#### Answer 18
