**Hi Bankersdaily Aspirants,**

Learning is a step by step process and you should gradually progress in that to ace the process. As you all know we have started a new Learn Series to help with your preparations for various exams like IBPS PO , IBPS RRB Scale I officer , IBPS RRB Office Assistant , IBPS Clerk , IBPS SO , SBI PO , SBI Clerk , SBI SO and many other exams in this type. Nevertheless this series will also contribute you all the tips and tricks to every miscellaneous sections and also all the important topics which are asked in the exams.

1)BASED ON INCREASE & DECREASE

2)BASED ON FINDING TOTAL NUMBERS

3)BASED ON WRONG ASSUMPTION

## #.1.TYPE 1:

### BASED ON INCREASE & DECREASE:

**1)There were 35 employees in the start up company.If the number of employees increases by 7,the expense send for Refreshment increases by Rs.42 per day while the average expenditure per head diminishes by Rs.1.Find the Original expenditure for the Refreshment?**

Let us Assume Average Expenditure be **X **initially

Therefore,the total Expenditure =**35X**

When 7 more Employees join the Company,total expenditure =35x+42(Given in the Question)

After this the expenditure decreases by Rs.1 for each employee

(35X+42)/(35+7)=X-1

(35X+42)/42=X-1

(35X+42)=42X-42

7X=84

X=12

Thus,the original expenditure for refreshment=35*12=**Rs.420**

## PRACTICE THIS QUESTION BY YOURSELF:

### 1)There were 45 Students in a Class.If the number of Students increases by 9,the expenditure of maintenance increases by Rs.25 per day while the average expenditure per head diminishes by Rs.1.Find the original price of Maintenance?

## #.2. TYPE 2:

### BASED ON FINDING TOTAL NUMBERS:

**1)The Average age of all the employees in the Start Up is 25 years.The Average age of Male Employee in the Start Up is 27 years & that of the Female Employee is 23 years.If the number of Female employee in the Start up is 32.Then Find the number of Male Employee in the Start Up?**

Given that,

The number of Female employee in the Start up is 32 & the Average Age of the Female Employee is 23,Let the Individual age of the Female Employee be x

Therefore, 32*X/32=23

**X=23**

The Average age of all the Employee in the Start Up is **25**

736+27X=25(32+X)

736+27X=25X+800

2X=64

**X=32**

#### Therefore **the number of Male Employee in the StartUp = 32**

## PRACTICE THIS SUM:

**1)In a Tutorial Centre the Average Age of Students studying for Class 12 exam is 22 years.The Average age of boys of the class is 26 years and that of the girls is 19 years.If the number of girls in the class is 16.Find the number of boys in the class?**

## #.3 TYPE 3:

### BASED ON WRONG ASSUMPTION:

**1)The average weight of 15 Employees was Calculated to be 52 kg and it was later discovered that one weight was misread as 21 kg instead of the correct one of 12 kg.The Correct average weight is?**

Average Weight of 15 Employees =52 Kg

Therefore,the Correct Average weight:

Given Weight+(Correct Weight – Wrong Weight)/Total number of Employee

=52+(12-21)/15

=52-9/15

=52 – .6

**=51.4 Kg**

**PRACTICE THIS SUM:**

### 1)The Average mark of Aakash in 5 Subjects is 89,and it is noted finally that Science Mark is wrongly written as 90 instead of 95 then find the average mark of Aakash?
