Introduction Q15. Average of 10 terms increases by 10, when 10 more terms are added to it. Find the sum of these 10 newly added terms, if average of these new 10 terms is double the average of the initial 10 terms. Solution: Let initial average of 10 terms be x' So, the new average atter the inclusion of 10 new terms would be (x+ 10) Initial sum = 10 * x New sum 20(x + 10) And the average of the 10 new terms = 2x So, their sum 2x x 10 20x Equating the sums, we get 10x + 20x = 20x + 10) x = 20 Sum of newly added 10 numbers 20x 20 x 20 400.

Introduction Q16. A boat has a maximum capacity to carry 1200 kg. There are 20 children and 20 adults waiting on the river bank to cross the river in the boat Each child weighs 30kg and each adult weighs 50kg.

Introduction Q17. The average salary of marketing department, having 22 employees working, of ABC company is 3.7 lac more than the average salary of operations department, having 15 employees working, of same company.
