### Explanations

1. Cost price of the wallet 2. Let the maximum aggregate marks be x.

Therefore, 8 % x = 210 – 168 X= 525

3. Let the ages of women and her daughter are 5x and x respectively.

Therefore, 6x = 42

X = 7

After 5 yr, 4. The average 5. Cost of 4 Bowls and 6 Bottles = Rs. 142.5

Cost of 8 Bowls and 12 bottles = 2×142.5 = Rs.285

6. Let the number be x.

63 % of x = 2583

1 % of x = 2583/63

45 % of x = 2583/63 × 45 = 1845

7. In descending order,  8. His percentage 9. Days in June, July and august 2008 = (30 + 31 + 31) days = 92 days

A canteen requires for 3 days = 45 kg

A canteen requires for 92 days 10. Let the first and second numbers are x and y, respectively.

Therefore,  x : y = 5 : 2
