Hi Friends,

Here are the ques..


1.Solve for X,   (3 marks)

2.A person took part in a cycling race with many others. After pedaling for several minutes, he obtained that 1/5 th of the racers ahead of him and 5/6 th of the cyclist behind him together formed the total number of participants. How many people participated in the race?



 Let X be the total number of racers.


          (X-1)/5 – 5(X-1)/6=X



3.A big cube painted red on all the sides. It was cut into 27 smaller cubes by six straight lines. How many of the smaller cubes painted on all three sides, on two sides, on one side and no faces painted? (8 marks)



Let n be the side of cube.

Sides of cube = three X three X 3

No faces painted=(n-2) X (n-2) X (n-2)

                           =(3-2) X (3-2) X (3-2) = 1(Sure)


1 side painted = six X (n-2) X (n-2)




2 sides painted = 12 X (n-2)

                        = 12(Sure)



All the three sides painted = 8(Sure)


4.There is a five-digit number. The 5th digit is 1 4th of the 3rd digit and 1 half of the 4th digit. 3rd digit is 1 half of the 1st digit. 2nd digit is five more than the 5th digit. What is that 5-digit number? (6 marks)



Let the 5th digit be X, then 4th digit =2X and 3rd digit = 4X.

And also 2nd digit is five more than the last digit.

Therefore second digit = X + 5

Also 1st digit = 4X * 2


It is clear from the above statements that the 5th digit must be 1.


Therefore the number is 86421. (Sure)


5.A car is traveling in a uniform speed. The driver sees a milestone, which is a 2-digit number. After traveling for an

Let the milestone be XY.

After an hour he saw a milestone numbered YX.

After a different hour he saw a milestone numbered X0Y
