Ques:- A certain type of mixture is prepared by mixing brand A at Rs.9 a kg. with brand B at Rs.4 a kg. If the mixture is worth Rs.7 a kg., how many kgs. of brand A are needed to make 40kgs. of the mixture?

24

Step-by-step explanation:

A + B = 40.

And at Rs 7 a kg for 40 kg, you want a total of Rs.280.

So the second equation is 9A + 4B = 280

From the first equation: B = 40 – A

and sub into the second equation:

9A + 4(40-A) = 280

9A + 160 – 4A = 280

5A = 120

A = 24.

And you should check: B should equal 40-24 = 16. Check with the final equation: 9*24 + 4*16 = 216 + 64 = 280. So it works.

Ques:- What are Testing Techniques
Ques:- A man swims downstream 30 km and upstream 18 km taking 3 hours each time, what is the speed of the man in still water?

Given:
Speed of man downstream= 30/3=10km/h
Speed of man in upstream=18/3=6km/h
Speed of man in still water=1/2 (speed of upstream+ speed of down stream)
= 1/2 (10+6)
=1/2*16
=8km/h
