Difficult Math Problems With Answers
Following are few examples of solved problems.
Example 1: -
The average age of ten members in a family same as it was 4 years ago, because an old member has been replaced by a young member. Find how much younger is the new member?
Let the sum of the ages of nine member (total) be x
and the age of oldest member be z
so its average 4 yrs before = (x + z)/10.
After 4 years
let z be replaced by y.
Now each person’s age is increased by 4. So the new sum of ages of the nine members
= x + 4 x 10
= x + 40
So the new average age = (x + 40 + y )/10
now (x + z)/10=(x + 40 + y)/10
Multiplying by 10, we get (x + z) = x + 40 + y
Canceling x on both sides, we get
z = y + 40.
So the older member is 40 years older than younger
Example 2 : -
A computer can do "a" calculations in "b" seconds. Suppose we have to do c calculations. How many minutes will the computer take to complete the calculations?
Given that the computer can do "a" in "b" seconds . So in a second, it can do a/b calculations
In a minute, it can do 60a/b calculations
So a calculation require b/60a minutes
Given that it has to do c calculations
So for c calculations, the computer will take cb/60a minutes
