The average salary per head of the entire staff of an office including the officers and clerks is Rs.90. The average salary per head of the officers is Rs.600 and that of the clerk is Rs.84. If the number of officers is 12, find the number of clerks in the office?

A.

1540

B.

960

C.

840

D.

1020

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option DExplanation

Let number of clerk be x.

Average salary of entire staff = Rs. 90

Average salary of per head officer = Rs. 600

Number of head officers = 12

Total salary of 12 officer = 600 * 12 = Rs. 7200

Average salary of clerk = Rs. 84

Total salary of clerk = x * 84

12 + x (90) = 7200 + 84x

1080 + 90x = 7200 + 84x

6x = 6120

x = 1020

Hence, Number of clerks in the office = 1020.

In an exam, the average marks for 80 students of Class V is 35. The average of marks in section A of the class is 55 while the average of marks in section B is 30. Find the number of students in section B?

A.

45

B.

50

C.

64

D.

60

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

Total students i.e. Section A + Section B = 80

Section A = (80 – Section B) = 80 – B

∴ 80 x 35 = B x 30 + (80 – B) x 55

2800 = 30B + 4400 – 55B

1600 = 25 B

B = 64

∴ B = 64 = Number of students in section B.

If we choose four numbers, the average of the first three will be 16 and that of last three is 15. If the last number is 18, the first number will be?

A.

20

B.

21

C.

23

D.

25

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Sum of Last 3 numbers= 15*3=45

Hence the last number is 18

So, Sum of 2nd & 3rd = 45-18= 27

Again sum of first three numbers =16*3=48

Therefore the 1st number will be

sum of 1st 3 number-sum of 2nd & 3rd number

i.e. 48-27=21
