2. A invests $12000, B invests $8000, C invests $6000 and they got a profit of $1200. How much share A got more than B and C?

Ratio of amt invested by A & B=3:2
Ratio of amt invested by B & C=4:3
Thus, Ratio of amt invested by 3 of them=A:B:C=3:2:1.5
Profit got to A more than B=(3/6.5)-(2/6.5)=(1/6.5)=2/13
Profit got to A more than C=(3/6.5)-(1.5/6.5)=(1.5/6.5)=3/13.

17. Suppose there is 3 buckets of fruits in 1st bucket there is apple in 2nd there is oranges and in 3rd mixed fruits is there and all 3 buckets has been labeled incorrectly you have to labeled them correctly by taking one fruit from any of the basket. what will be your approach to solve this?

Take out a fruit from bucket 2, if that is an orange then go to bucket 1 if that is an apple then go to bucket 3 and if that also gives you an apple then the point to note here is the labeling which is incorrect on all the buckets is the key to figure out right fruits there in each of the buckets. If the label on bucket 2 says "Mixed" then that is incorrect and it needs a label as "Oranges". Check the label on bucket 1, if that says "Apple" then that is "Mixed" and indeed bucket 3 would be "Apples" which would have the label as "Orange".

the digit count of the sequence isof the form..... (ie)1+5=6 3+0=3 2+8=1 etc.
6 3 1 7 2 7 1 .....so the remaining two nos. should have the count 3 and 6 respectively.....
moreover the flow of the sequence is "the second no. is greater than first and all other are less upto the no. with count 2(i.e) middle no.

and the no. next to middle no. (i.e)34 is greater than 20...
so all others should be less than 34....

on keeping all these in mind... v ll have 21 : 2+1=3
15 : 1+5=6

so the sequence is 15 30 28 25 20 34 28 21 15

A completed work in 100 days before and A is 6 times faster than B..

let total days to work is n.

A=6B;

60,35,5?

The detail solution to this question is like this.

Let's Say father's age in year is Y yr. Son's age in weeks is x week, which if converted to year is 7x/365yr. Now as per the question,

The Father replies, "My son is as many weeks as my grandson is in days

so grandson's age in days is X days.,which if converted to year is x/365 yr.

So 1st equation: y+7x/365+x/365 = 100....................(1)

Father says My grandson is as many months old as I am in years.

means, grandson is y months old,b'coz father is y yrs old.So equating grandson's age in days(x days) from above statement with his age in months (y month),both converted in years, gives us

x/365 = y/12.......................(2)

solving these two equations gives y=60 in years,that is father' age.grandson is as many months old as father is in years.So grandson's age is 60 months,i.e 5yrs,which converted to days is 1825 days.As son's age is as many weeks as grandson's age is in days.So son's age is 1825 weeks,that is converted in yrs is 1825*7/365=35yrs.

father 60yrs

son 35yrs

Grandson 5yrs
