### Question 1

A bag contains 780 red, 2160 green and 3060 blue marbles. What percentage of the total is the most visible color in the bag?

### Question 2

If 4% of A + B = 9% of A - B, then what percent of B is A?

**A**

$2{3/5}$ %.

**B**

$4{1/2}$ %.

**C**

$1{1/7}$ %.

**D**

4 %.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

We have been given 4% of A + B = 9% of A - B, so ${A + B}/{A - B}$ = $9/4$. By componendo and dividendo, ${(A + B) + (A - B)}/{(A + B) - (A - B)}$ = ${9 + 4}/{9 - 4}$, which gives $A/B$ = $13/5$ = ${13/5}$, which is same as: $2{3/5}$%

### Question 3

If 17% of X + 8% of Y equals 2/3 of the sum of 4% of X and 15% of Y, then the ratio of X to Y is?

**A**

${6/43}$.

**B**

$1{1/6}$.

**C**

$2{2/45}$.

**D**

3.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

We can drop the % from both sides and write the given equation as 17X + 8Y = $2/3$ × (4X + 15Y), which is same as 3 × (17X + 8Y) = 2 × (4X + 15Y). Let r = X/Y. Dividing both sides by Y and putting r = X/Y, we get, 3 × (17r + 8) = 2 × (4r + 15), solving for r we get r = ${6/43}$.
