Hi Guys,

Can some one help me in getting the questions from 1-200.

Thanks,

Almost a repeat post, but just meant to drive home the point 😉

The following thread will become sticky by the afternoon. **Carry on the discussions from #201 onwards here...**

i am getting d answer as D none of the fore going

chek dis out and tell me where it went wrong (if it did)

let "a" be d people who only study at home

" c" be d poeple who only attend classes

" b" people who attend classes and study at home

"d" who do nothing

now from the question a set of equations can be framed

a+b+c+d=300

(c+d)+(a+d) = 4/3(a+b+c+b)

c= 7/5(a)

b= 1/2(d) and a+c=2/3(b) we need to find out what d+b is

solving we get a=5/4(d) b=1/2(d) c=7/4(d) and a+b+c+d=300

therefore b+d = 100

which is not in the options

now what is going wrong in this

#200

ANS - 180

a = students who only study at home

b = students who only attend classes

c = stduents who do both

n = students who do neither

according to the Q,

a+b = 2c ...1

c = n/2 ...2

a+b+n = 4/3*(a+b+c)

b = 7/5*a

a+b+c+n = 300 ...3

frm 1,2 n 3 ->

c = 60, n = 120

so reuired answer -> c+n = 180.

hi folks ..this is my first post

todays question :**In a certain class of 300 students , the number of students who either do not study at home or do not attend classes is a third more than of those who either study at home or attend classes. the number of students who do not study at home but attend classes is two fifths more than those who study at home but do not attend classes, while the number of students who study at home as well as attend classes is half of those who neither study at home nor attend classes. If the number of students who only study at home or only attend classes is a third less than those who do either, then how many students who either do neither or do both?**

**(a) 150 (b) 180 (c) 210 (d) none of the foregoing**

**my answer is (b)**

**solution :**

**the equation we get is :**

**3x = 4z + R + Y**

**z= X/2**

**x+ Y + z + R = 300**

**solving these : x = 4z + R + y / 3 = 2z**

**=> 2z = R + y**

**=> 3z + x = 300**

**=> 5z = 300**

**=> z = 60 .**

**therefore x +z = 180 .**

**where x = no of persons which neither study at home and neither attend classes .**

**y = no of persons attending classes only**

**r= no of persons studying at home only**

**z = no of persons doing both .**

**thanks**

**My answer is 180 i.e option (b)**

a = students who study at home

b = students who attend classes

z = students who do both the above

x+y = c = students who neither study nor attend the classes

Accroding to the conditions in the question, we have 5 equations

(1) c = 4*(a+z+b)/3

(2) b = 7*b/5

(3) z = 0.5*c

(4) a+b = 2*(a+z+b)/3

(5) c+z+a+b = 300

Using equations (3), (4) and (5), we get,

z = 60

c = 120

Our answer = z+c = 180

P.S - We don't require equations (1) and (2) to solve this question.

180 it is

simple ques on venn diagrams

a = study at home only

b = both

c = attend classes only

d = neither

a+ b + c + d = 300

a + c = 0.67 ( a + b + c )

b = d / 2

only these 3 r enuf

to get d = 120 b = 60

hence ans = 180

I am getting 180.

#NL 200

My answer : (b) - 180

Intersection =(x+y)/2 where x,y are the number of people doing only attending classes and studying at home.

From the last equation (x+y)'=120 ,from third eqn.,(x+y)'=2(intersection).

So Intersection +(x+y)'=120+ 120/2 =180
