Q1). x^1/3 – x^1/9 = 60 . find the value of X. (3 marks)
Ans : write x^1/3 as x^1/9. x^1/9. x^1/9
Now x^1/9(x^2/9 – 1) =60
Now use trial and error method. Then x= 4^9

Q4) There was a cycle race going on. 1/5th of the those in front of a person and 5/6th of those behind him gives the total number of participants. How many people took part in the race? (3 marks) Ans : 31 (5 marks)
Let the total number of participants be X
So, [(x-1)/5 + 5(x-1)/6] = X
Q5) A man starts from XYZ city and drives a constant speed. After some time he sees a milestone with two digits written on it. after he drives for an hour, he sees another milestone with the same digits, but in reversed order. After another hour of journey, he sees another milestone with original digits but with a zero between them.
What was the speed of his car if milestones show kilometers? ( 6 marks)
Ans ) 45 kmph
Let speed of car be x kmph
Let at first he sees digits as ‘ab’…that is the value of number is: 10a+b
After traveling for one hour, he sees the number as ‘ba’…thus its value is 10b+a
After traveling another hour,he sees the number as ‘a0b’…thus value is 100a+b
10a+b+x=10b+a..which gives x=9b-9a
10b+a+x=100a+b..which gives x=99a-9b
Equating we get,
since ‘a’ and ‘b’ are digits, a=1 and b=6 and thus x=45
Q6). Uncle Reuben and Aunt Cynthia came to town for shopping. Reuben bought a suit and hat for $15. Cynthia paid as much as for her hat as Reuben did for his suit then she spent the rest of their money for a new dress.
