The price of 80 apples is equal to that of 120 oranges. The price of 60 apples and 75 oranges together is Rs. 1320. The total price of 25 apples and 40 oranges is:

Let price of one apple $$=a$$
price of one orange $$=b$$
Price of 80 apples = Price of 120 oranges
$$\Rightarrow 80a=120b\\ \Rightarrow 2a=3b\\ \Rightarrow b = \dfrac{2a}{3}~\cdots(1)$$
Price of 60 apples + Price of 75 oranges =Rs. 1320
$$\Rightarrow 60a+75b=1320\\ \Rightarrow 4a+5b=88\\ \Rightarrow 4a+\dfrac{5(2a)}{3}=88 \quad \text{[ Because substituted value of } b \text{ from }(1)]\\ \Rightarrow 12a+10a=88 \times 3\\ \Rightarrow 6a+5a=44 \times 3\\ \Rightarrow 11a=44 \times 3\\ \Rightarrow a=4 \times 3=12$$

$$b=\dfrac{2a}{3}=\dfrac{2 \times 12}{3}=8$$

Total price of 25 apples and 40 oranges
$$=25a+40b\\=25\times12+40\times8\\=300+320\\=620$$

A man has Rs. 480 in the denominations of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes and ten-rupee notes. The number of notes of each denomination is equal. What is the total number of notes that he has ?

Let number of notes of each denomination be $$x$$
Then $$x + 5x + 10x = 480$$
$$\Rightarrow 16x = 480$$
$$\therefore x = 30$$
Hence, total number of notes $$= 3x = 90$$

There are 6 working days in a regular week and for each day, the working hours are 10. A man earns Rs. 2.10 per hour for regular work and Rs. 4.20 per hour for overtime. If he earns Rs. 525 in 4 weeks, how many hours did he work?

Regular working hours in 4 weeks
$$=4 \times 6 \times 10=240$$ hours
Amount earned by working in these regular working hours
$$=240 \times 2.10= \text {Rs. } 504$$
$$=525-504=\text{Rs. }21$$
Hours he worked overtime
$$=\dfrac{21}{4.2}=\dfrac{210}{42}=5$$ hours
Total hours he worked
$$=240+5=245$$

Simplfy: $$b - [b -(a+b) - {b - (b - a+b)} + 2a]$$

$$b-[b-(a+b)-{b-(b-a+b)}+2a]$$
$$=b-[b-a-b-{b-(2b-a)}+2a]$$
$$=b-[-a-{b-2b+a}+2a]$$
$$=b-[-a-{-b+a}+2a]$$
$$=b-[-a+b-a+2a]$$
$$=b-[-2a+b+2a]$$
$$=b-b$$
$$=0$$
