Question: 3x is 5% of y, y is 24% of z. if x = 480, find the values of y and z.

Solution:Given,

= x is 5% of y

= x= (5/100) y

= y = (100/5) x

= y = 20 x

= y = 20(480)

= y = 9600

Also given,

= y is 24% of z

= y= 24/100 z

= z= 100/24 y

= z = (100/24) × 9600

= z = 40000

12 % protein. Amount of protein intake = 12% of 2600 = (12/100) × 2600 = 312 calories

25 % fats. Amount of fats intake = 25% of 2600 = (25/100) × 2600 = 650 calorie

Question: 19The value of the machine depreciates every year by 5%. If the present value of the machine is Rs.100000, what will be it’s value after 2 years?

Solution:It is given that the value of the machine depreciates by 5% every year. Present value of the machine = Rs.100000

Therefore, 5% of 100000 = Rs.5000

Value of the machine after 1

^{st}year = Rs (100000 - 5000)= Rs. 95000

5 % of 95000 = Rs.4750

Value of the machine in the 2

^{nd}year =Rs (95000 - 4750)= Rs 90250

After two years, the value of the machine will be Rs.90250

Question: 20The population of the town increased by 10% annually. If the present population is 60000, what will be its population after 2 years?

Solution:Present population = 60000

It increases 10% annually

Increase in the population in the first year = 60000 + 6000 = 66000

66000 is the increase in the population in the second year = 10% of 66000 = 6600

Thus population after 2 years = 66000 + 6600 = 72600

The population of the town after 2 years is 72600.

Question: 21The population of the town is increased by 10% annually. If the present population is 22000, find the population a year ago.

Solution:Let the population of the town one year ago be x

Now, it is given that population of the town increases by 10%

Present population = x + 10% of x

But present population of the town = 22000

According to the question,

= x = 20000

The population of the town a year ago is 20000.
