B. Rs. 3500
C. Rs. 3400
D. Rs. 4200
E. Rs. 4500
Answer – B. Rs. 3500
Explanation :
Average monthly expenditure for 3 months = Rs. 2750
Total expenditure for 3 months = Rs 2750 x 3 = Rs. 8250
Average monthly expenditure for 3 months = Rs. 2940
Total expenditure for 3 months = Rs 2940 x 3 = Rs. 8820
Average monthly expenditure for 3 months = Rs. 3150
Total expenditure for 3 months = Rs 3150 x 3 = Rs. 9450
Total savings for 9 months = 4980
Average monthly income for 9 months = (8250 + 8820 + 9450 + 4980)/9 = 3500

2. The average age of a family of 8 members is 24 years. If the age of the youngest member be 6 years, the average age of the family at the birth of the youngest member was?

B. 21.42 years
C. 27.42 years
D. 26.42 years
E. 24.42 years
Answer – B. 21.42 years
Explanation:
Total present age of the family (8*24) = 192 years
Total age of the family 6 years ago = (192 – 6*7) = 150 years
At that time, Total members in the family = 7
Therefore Average age at that time = 150/7 = 21.42 years

200x + 520 x 15 = 250 ( 15 + x )
250x â€“ 200x = 520 * 15 – 250 x 15
50x =Â 4050
x = 81

E. 28%
Answer – C. 38%
Explanation:
Suresh’s average monthly expenditure for the first four months of the year = Rs.260.
260 * 4 = Rs. 1040
For the next five months,the average monthly expenditure was Rs.40 more than what it was during the first four months. He spent 260 + 40 for one month
In 5 months he spent 300 * 5 = 1500
He spent Rs.560 in all during the remaining three months of the year.
Total expenditure = 1040 + 1500 + 560 = 3100
Savings = 5000-3100 = 1900
% savings = 1900/5000 * 100 = 38%

= 22x + 250 – 12x – 300
10x = 50
x = 5
