50. There are 2 candidates P & Q in an election. During the campaign, 40% of the voters promised to vote for P and rest for Q. However, on the day of election 15% of the voters went back on their promise to vote for P and instead voted for Q. 25% of the voters went back on their promise to vote for Q and instead voted for P. Suppose P lost by 2 votes, then what was the total number of voters?

48.

Let number of boys who participated= 4x

Let number of girls who participated =3x

no of candidates who passed the examination= 80% of 7x= (28x/5)
no of girls who passed the examination= 90% of 3x= (27x/10)

So,  no of boys who passed the examination= (28x/5)- (27x/10)= (29x/10)

As %= (29/40)*100= 72.5%

boy = 4x ; girl = 3x ;  total = 7x

total passed is 80% =>0.8 * 7x = 5.6x

girls passed is 90% =>0.9* 3x = 2.7x

hence boy passed = 5.6x-2.7x = 2.9x

pass percentage = 2.9x / 4x  =0.725 or 72.5 %

total voter = 100x

                     p             q

 1st eqn       40x           60x

2nd eqn       -6x           +6x

3rd eqn       +15x         -15x

total =       49x             51x

As the final difference between them = 2 (given) = 51x - 49x;

hence x=1; 

total voter = 100.

Mathematically- 

1983= 1.5

1984= 2

1985= 2.xx

D. 352


cost per unit in 1985= 330/150

in 1986, total units= 160

therefore, total cost= 330/150*160=352
