If 18 men working 5 hours a day for 8 days can complete a job, how many men working 8 hours a day for 6 days will be needed?

Solution
Suppose x men are required
\(\Rightarrow x=\frac{18\times 5\times 8}{8\times 6}=15\)
A train 110 m long travels at 60 km/hr. How long does it take to cross a platform 240 m long?

Solution
The train has to cover a total distance of (110 + 240)m = 350m
Speed in metre per second =\(\frac{5\times 60}{18}=\frac{50}{3}\) metre/see
\(Time=\frac{350}{\frac{50}{3}}=\frac{350 \times 3}{50}\)
= 21 seconds
A man is walking at a speed of 10 kmph. After every km, he takes rest for 5 minutes. How much time will he take to cover a distance of 5 km?

Solution
Normal time taken to cover 5km at the speed of 10 kmph = 30 minutes
He took rest for 4 × 5 = 20 minutes
∴ Total time = 30 + 20 minutes
= 50 minutes
Find simple interest, if P = ₹. 500, R = 2% per six months, T = ^{5}⁄_{2} years

Solution
SI = \(\frac{PRT}{100}\)
=\(\frac{500\times 2\times 2\times 5}{2\times 100}\)
= Rs. 50
