### Ques 1

In the first 10 overs of a cricket game, the run rate was only 3.2. What should be the run rate in the remaining 40 overs to reach the target of 282 runs?

#### Solution

→ Runs scored in the first 10 overs = 3.2*10 = 32

So, the required run rate in the remaining 40 overs is 6.25.

### Ques 2.

A grocer has a sale of Rs. 6435, Rs. 6927, Rs. 6855, Rs. 7230 and RS. 6562 for 5 consecutive months. How much sale must he have in the sixth month so that he gets an average sale of Rs. 6500?

#### Solution

→ Let X be the sale in 6th month
→ (6435+ 6927+ 6855+7230 +6562+X)/6=6500
→ 6435+ 6927+ 6855+7230 +6562+X = 6*6500

### Ques 4.

The captain of a cricket team of 11 members is 26 years old and the wicket keeper is 3 years older. If the ages of these two are excluded, the average age of the remaining players is one year less than the average age of the whole team. Find out the average age of the team.

#### Solution

→ Average age of the team is X.
→ Sum of the age of all the 11 members = 11X
→ Age of captain = 26
→ Age of wicket keeper = 29
→ Average age of 9 remaining members = (11X – (26+29))/9 = (X-1)
→ Solving this we get X = 23 years.

### Ques 5.

The library has an average of 510 visitors on Sundays and 240 on other days. What is the average number of visitors per day in a month of 30 days beginning with a Sunday?

#### Solution

→ Hence there will be 5 Sundays and 25 remaining days in a month begin with Sunday.
→ Average visitors in a month of 30 days = (510*5) + (240*25)/30 = 285.
So, the average visitors in a month of 30 days is 28

### Ques 6.

The average age of husband, wife and their child 3 years ago was 27 years and that of wife and the child 5 years ago was 20 years. What is the present age of the husband?

#### Solution

→ 3 years ago, (husband – 3) + (wife – 3) + (child -3) = 27*3 = 81
→ Husband + wife +child = 90
→ 5 years ago, (wife – 5) + (child – 5) = 20*2 = 40
→ Wife + child = 50
→ Husband + 50 = 90
→ Husband = 40 years
Hence husband’s present age is 40 years.

### Ques 7.

The average weight of 8 person’s increases by 2.5 kg when a new person comes in place of one of them weighing 65kg. What is the weight of the new person?

→ Total runs scored in 17th innings be 17X.
→ Average runs scored after 16th innings be (X-3)
→ Total runs scored in 16th innings = 16(X-3)
→ Total runs scored in 16th innings + 87 = 17th innings
→ 16(X-3) + 87 = 17X
→ X= 39
Average after 17th innings is 39.
