Solution: Question: 3

The ratio of income to the expenditure of a family is 7: 6. Find the savings if the income is Rs.1400.

Solution:

The ratio of income and expenditure = 7: 6

7x = 1400

x = 200

Expenditure = 6x = 6 × 200 = Rs.1200

Savings = Income - Expenditure

= 1400 -1200

= Rs.200

Question: 4

The scale of a map is 1: 4000000. What is the actual distance between the two towns if they are 5cm apart on the map?

Solution:

The scale of map = 1: 4000000

Let us assume the actual distance between towns is x cm

1: 4000000 =5: x

x = 5 × 4000000 = 20000000 cm

1km = 1000 m

1m = 100 cm

Therefore

x = 200 km

Question: 5

The ratio of income of a person to his savings is 10: 1. If his savings for one year is Rs.6000, what is his income per month?

Solution:

The ratio of income of a person to his savings is 10: 1

Savings per month = 6000/12

= Rs.500

Then let income per month be x

x: 500 = 10:1

x = 500 × 10

x = 5000
