## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Solutions Term 3 Chapter 2 Life Mathematics Additional Questions

Question 1.

120 men had food for 200 days. After 5 days 30 men left the camp. How long will the remaining food last.

Solution:

Since 30 men left after 5 days, the remaining food is sufficient for 120 men for 195 days. Suppose the remaining food lasts for x days for the remaining 90 men.

We have

More men means less days the food lasts

∴ It is inverse proportion

120 : 90 = x : 195

Product of extremes = Product of means

120 × 195 = 90 × x

x = \(\frac{120×195}{90}\)

x = 90

x = 260.

∴ Remaining food last for 260 days.

Question 2.

15 men earn Rs 900 in 5 days, how much will 20 men earn in 7 days?

Solution:

In one day 15 men earn Rs 900

In one day 15 men earn \(\frac{900}{5}\) = Rs 180

In one day 1 men earn \(\frac{180}{5}\) = Rs 12

∴ 1 men earn in 7 days = 12 × 7 = Rs 84

∴ 20 men earn in 7 days = 84 × 20 = 1680

Question 3.

A and B together can do a piece of work in 10 days, B and C can do the same work together in 12 days, A and C can do together in 15 days. How long will it take to complete the work working three of them altogether?

Solution:

(A + B)’s 1 day’s work = \(\frac{1}{10}\)……….(1)

(B + C)’s 1 day’s work = \(\frac{1}{12}\)……….(2)

(A + C)’s 1 day’s work = \(\frac{1}{15}\)……….(3)

(l) + (2) + (3) ⇒

[A + B + B + C + A + C]’s 1 day work = \(\frac{1}{10}\) + \(\frac{1}{12}\) + \(\frac{1}{15}\)

(2A + 2B + 2C)’s 1 day work = \(\frac{6 + 5 + 4}{60}\)

2(A + B + C)’s 1 day work = \(\frac{15}{60}\)

(A + B + C)’s 1 day’s work = \(\frac{1}{4 × 2}\) = \(\frac{1}{8}\)

∴ A + B + C work together to finish the work in 8 days.
