10. Krishnamurthy earns Rs. 15000 per month and spends 80% of it. Due to pay revision, his monthly income has increased by 20% but due to price rise, he has to spend 20% more. His new savings are:

Rs. 3,400

Rs. 3,000

Rs. 3,600

Rs. 4,000

**Answer**

1. Average increases by 3.6

So total increases = 3.6*10 = 36 (this is the difference between the original and interchanged number) If the original number is 48 then its reverse is 84 which is 36 greater then the original number So the difference between the digits = 8-4 = 4

2. let the marked price of item is M.

M×.9×1.08=3402

M=3402÷ (.9×1.08)

M =3500

3.

4.

Let the third number be 100

Then, first number = 70

Therefore, second number = 63

Hence, required % =(70-63)/70×100

=7/70×100=10%

5.

Required effect =(+40-40-(40 × 40)/100)%

i.e. the area will decrease by 16%.

6.

In 1 kg mixture quantity of iron = 200 gm

Let x gm sand should be added, then 10% of (1000 + x) = 200

∴ x = 1000 gm = 1 kg.

8.

9.

Percentage decrease =r/(100 + r)×100%

=(25/125)×100=20%
