The average salary of the entire staff in a office is Rs 250 per month. The average
salary of officers is Rs 520 and that of non-officers is Rs. 200. If the number of
officers is 15, then find the number of non–officers in the office
Correct
Let the required number of non–officers = x
200x + 520 x 15 = 250 ( 15 + x )
250x – 200x = 520 * 15 – 250 x 15
50x = 4050
x = 81
Incorrect
Let the required number of non–officers = x
200x + 520 x 15 = 250 ( 15 + x )
250x – 200x = 520 * 15 – 250 x 15
50x = 4050
x = 81

In 5 months he spent 300 * 5 = 1500
He spent Rs.560 in all during the remaining
three months of the year.
Total expenditure = 1040 + 1500 + 560 =
3100

The average weight of 40 students in a class is 75 kg. By mistake the weights of
two students are read as 74 kg and 66 kg respectively instead of 66 kg and 54 kg.
Find the corrected average weight of the class
Correct
Weight of 40 students = 40*75
new weight = 40*75 – 74 – 66 + 66 + 54 = 40*75 – 20
so new average =( 40*75 – 20)/40 = 74.50 kg
Incorrect
Weight of 40 students = 40*75
new weight = 40*75 – 74 – 66 + 66 + 54 = 40*75 – 20
so new average =( 40*75 – 20)/40 = 74.50 kg

The present average age of a family of 5 members is 40 years. If the youngest
member of the family is 12 years old, then find the average age of the family at the
time of birth of the youngest member.
Correct
Present age of the family = 5*40 = 200
years.
12 years ago at the time of the birth of
youngest member, age of family = 200 –
12*5 = 140.
So average age = 140/4 = 35 year
Incorrect
Present age of the family = 5*40 = 200
years.
12 years ago at the time of the birth of
youngest member, age of family = 200 –
12*5 = 140.
So average age = 140/4 = 35 year

The average age of a husband and wife at the time of marriage is 22 years. After
3 years, they have a one year old child. Find the average age of the family of three at the time of birth of the child.
Correct
At the time of marriage sum of the age of
husband and wife = 44 years.
After three years, total age of the family = 44 + 3+ 3+ 1 = 51 years.
At the time of child birth, age of family = 51-1-1-1 = 48 years.
So average age = 48/3 = 16 years
Incorrect
At the time of marriage sum of the age of
husband and wife = 44 years.
After three years, total age of the family = 44 + 3+ 3+ 1 = 51 years.
At the time of child birth, age of family = 51-1-1-1 = 48 years.
