1. A 250 m long train is running at a speed of 55 Km/hr. It crossed a platform of length 520 m in? (Its a Previously asked on SSC 2012 exam) (*without a train question it is impossible to conduct an exam, I think you got, what I mean)
a) 40.4 sec                                           b) 40.5 sec
b) 50.4 sec                                           c) 50.5 sec
Speed = 55 Km/hr
(to convert km/hr into M/s)
= 55 x 5/18 M/s
Distance = 250 m + 520 m ( If questions is about train crossing a post you need to consider only the length of Train, )
= 770 m
Time = Distance / Speed
= 770 x 18 / (5 x 55)
= 50.4 sec
A can do a piece of work in 10 days and B alone can do it in 15 days. How much time will both take to finish the work?
This question can be solved by different methods. We need to conserve time in exams so solving this problem using equations is a good idea.
Time taken to finish the job = XY / (X + Y)
= 10 x 15 / (10 + 15)
= 150 / 25
= 6 days
A and B together can do a piece of work in 10 days. B alone can finish it in 20 days. In how many days can A alone finish the work?
Time is taken by A to finish the work = XY/(Y-X)
= 10 x 20 / (20-10)
=  200/10
= 20 days
1. Find the difference between the Simple Interest and Compound Interest for an amount of 50,000 at 10% of an interest rate for 2 years?
If you try to solve this problem without using Equation, You gonna spend too much time on this question.
Difference between SI and CI for 2 years = P (R/100)2
= 50000 x 10/100 x 10/100
= 500
Mathematics question from LCM & HCF
The LCM and HCF of two numbers are 8 and 48 respectively. If one of them is 24, Find the other?
HCF x LCM = Product of Numbers
8 x 48 = 24 x the other number
other number = (8 x 48) / 24
other number = 16
Sum of two number = 16 and product = 48, find the difference of the two number ??
To solve this question, you can use the equation,
(X-Y)2  = (X+Y)2 – 4 XY
(X-Y)2 = (16)2 -  4 x 48
(X-Y)2 = 256 – 192
(X-Y)2 =  64
X-Y = 8
