Important Mathematics for exam

1. Speed of a boat in still water is 16km/h. If it can travel 20km
downstream in the same time as it
can travel 12 km upstream, the rate of stream is.
Solution: Speed downstream: Speed upstream=20:12=5:3
Speed of current=5-3/5+3*16=4km/h

2. In one hour, a boat goes 11km along the stream and 5km against the
The speed of the boat in still water (in km/hr)is:
Solution: Speed in still water=1/2(11+5)kmph=8kmph

If ratio of downstream and upstream speeds of a boat is ‘a:b.’
Then ratio of time taken= b:a
Speed of stream=a-b/a+b *Speed in still water
Speed in still water =a+b/a-b *Speed of stream

3. How many number of times will the digit '7' be written when listing the integers
from 1 to 1000?
A) 271
B) 300
C) 252

Answer - B

4. How many numbers are there between 100 and 1000 such that at least one of
their digits is 6?
A) 648
B) 258
C) 654

Answer - D

nPr = n!/ (n-r)!
nCr = n!/r!(n-r)!
nCr = nC(n-r)
nCr = nPr/r!

worked alone?
A) 24 hours
B) 12 hours
C) 15 hours
D) 30 hours

Important Formula
1. Speed, Time and Distance:
Speed = Distance / time
Time = distance /speed
Distance =speed*time
