Q1) If a man takes 3 hrs and 5 hrs respectively in going from point A to B then from B to A at 6km/hr and 8 km/hr respectively. What will be the distance between points A & B?

Ans: Directly apply the formula to get the answer: d= (t1+t2)((a+b)/ab)

d= (3+5)((6+8)/48) = 8*(14/48) = 14/6 km.

Where T1 & T2 are the time taken, a & b are the respective speeds and d = distance.

#### SHORTCUT TRICK -2 (Multiplication By 11)

If a number is given to be multiplied by 11, you can use the following method to calculate the answer. Suppose you have 79*11. Put the number of 79 at units and 100’s place and put the total of that number in between. if the total exceeds 10 add 1 the digit at 100’s place thus bringing your answer.

ab*11 = a(a+b)b,

If a+b>10 add 1 to ‘a’ and keep the rest term intact. below is the sample question.

Q2) Calculate what is 79*11.

Ans: If you go by the regular formula you might not be able to do it verbally. This trick is applicable only when a number is said to be multiplied by ’11’ Here is a direct trick to solve this multiplication.

79*11 = 7() 9 = 7(16)9 = 869

### SHORTCUT TRICK – 3 (Calculation of Multiple Interest on CI)

If a loan is taken for more than 1 year and the rate of interest in varying for different years, you can directly use the formula given here to calculate the answer.

Amount = P[1+R1/100] [1+R2/100] [1+R3/100] where R1 = rate of interest for 1st year, R2 for the second year and so on.

Q3) If 40000 is given as loan for a period of 3 years with the interest rates 6%, 8% and 9% for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year respectively. What is the total amount that has to be paid at the end of 3 years?

Ans: By going with the regular method you will have to calculate the CI for each year and then add the CI of next year to the previous years’ number.

Here is a direct trick to avoid this:

Amount = P[1+6/100] [1+8/100] [1+9/100] where R1 = rate of interest for 1st year(6%), R2 (8%) for the second year and so on. Put the values and get the answer. Repeat it for any other similar case.
