15. There were 192 apples and pears in a box. John removed 2/5 of the apples from the box and he added 24 pears into the box. As a result, there was an equal number of apples and pears left in the box. How many more apples than pears were there in the box at first?




16.65% of the animals on a farm were cows and the rest were goats. When 240 more cows and goats were added to the farm, the percentage of cows increased by 20% and the number of goats doubled. How many goats were there on the farm at first?

Q15

Apples at 1st---> 5u

Suppose we add 24 pears and none of the apples were removed, then ratio of ARazz---> 5:3

Thus, 8u---> 192 + 24 = 216

1u---> 27

No. of pears at 1st ---> 27 x 3 - 24 = 57

No. of apples at 1st ---> 192 - 57 = 135

Diff ---> 135 - 57 = 78

Ans : 78





Q16

Ratio of C:G---> 65u: 35u

When 240 cows and goats were added,

% of cows increased by 20%---> 65u x 120% = 78u

goats doubles ---> 35u x 2 = 70u

Thus, (78u + 70u) - 100u = 48u ---> 240

35u---> 240/48 x 35 = 175

Ans: 175
