assorted lr


15 years back my neighbour Mrs. Sareen had 3 daughters Sudha, Seema, Reema- and their combined ages were half of hers. During d next 5 years Sonny was born & Mrs. Sareen’s age equalled the total of al her children’s ages.

After some years Kishu was born and then Sudha was as old as Reema and Sonny together. And now, the combined age of all children is double Mrs.Sareen’s age , which is as a matter of fact, only equal to that of Sudha and seema together. Sudha’s age is also equal to that of the two sons.

What is the age of each of them?

1)next door to me lives a man with his son.they both work in the same
factory.i watch them going to work thro my window.the father leaves
for work 10min earlier then his day i asked him about it and
he told me he takes 30 min to walk to his factory ,whereas his son is
able to cover the distance in only 20 min.
i wondered if the father were to leave the house 5 min earlier than
his son,how soon the son would catch up with the father.
how can u find the ans?

2)when i walked into that shop in new market i had altogether Rs 140
in purse.when i walked out i didnt have a single paise instead i had
a sari,a pair of shoes and a handbag.
the sari cost Rs 90 more then the handbag and the sari and the
handbag cost together Rs 120 more than the pair of much did
i pay for each item?

3)it was a skiing resort in switzerland.i met a skiing enthusiast by
the skiing slope. he had a packed lunch with him.he asked me to to
join him for lunch back in the spot where v were standing at 1
pm.,after he had done a bit of skiing.i told him no,as i had an
appointment to keep at 1pm.but if v could meet at 12 noon,i told him
that perhaps i could manage.
then he did some loud thinking,”i have calculated that if i could
skii at 10km/h i could arrive back at this spot by 1pm.. that would b
too late for u.but if i skii at the rate 15km/h then i could reach
back here at 11 am.and that would b too at what rate must i
skii to get back here at 12 noon?……let me c”
he got the rite figure and he got back exactly at 12 noon.we had an
excellent lunch
what do u think the figure was?
