Question 3268 | Mathematics Past Questions

In the first day, it was 2000 candidate
While in the next 4 days it doubled daily,
Mark that word "doubled daily"; it means if the first day is 2000, the 2nd day will be 2 × 2000 = 4000
And if the 2nd day is 4000 the 3rd day will be 2 × 4000 = 80000 and if the 3rd day is 80000 the 4th day will be 2 × 80000 = 16000 and if the 4th day is 16000 the 5th day will be 2 × 16000 = 32000. Therefore the next 4 days are 4000 8000 16000 and 32000.
Then the last 10 days it was 250 through out
Making a total of 2500
Therefore the total candidate that registered is 2000 + 4000 + 8000 + 16000 + 32000 + 2500 = 64,500 candidates.

Question 3245 | Mathematics Past Questions

Please NOTE; if 18 is added, the answer will be 35
But if 18 is subtracted, the answer will be 53

Timothy provided a contribution 2 years ago

Question 3245 | Mathematics Past Questions

The question is not correct
8 is not subtracted
Rather it is 18 that is added
As a result the answer is 35 and not 33
Hence B is the correct option

Question 3185 | Mathematics Past Questions

3 of the numbers are even, so A is the odd number out.

There could be other reasons for choice, but this is certainly the most obvious!

Question 3189 | Mathematics Past Questions

The total mark is assume as 100
So 100 of 72% is 72 as Yaq score
While his brother scored 2/3 of Yaq score of 72
Hence His brother's score is 2/3 × 72 = 48
While their niece score is twice that of Yaq brother,
That is 48 × 2 = 96
And not 95

Question 8734 | English Language Past Questions

I really think the answer to this question is
(A) surfeit
Stint means a limitation while
Surfeit means excessive amount of something while
Meticulous means a person who is very attentive, very careful and precise.
In all surfeit is the right antonym to stint.

Question 3091 | Mathematics Past Questions

Percentage error = measurement - actual measurement / Actual measurement × 100
%error = 5%
Actual measurement = 50cm
Measurement = ?
Substituting into equation above we have
5/100 = measurement - 50 / 50
Cross multiply
5 × 50 = 100{M - 50}
250 = 100M - 5000
Collect like terms
250 + 5000 = 100M
5250 = 100M
M = 52.5cm and not 512.5cm
Simple right

Question 3087 | Mathematics Past Questions

Let the total age be X
1/4 of X = x/4
1/5 of X = x/5
1/3 of X = x/3
Therefore
X - 13 = x/4 + x/5 + x/3
X - 13 = 15x + 12x + 20x / 60
Cross multiply
60x - 780 = 47x
Collect like terms
60x - 47x = 780
13x = 780
X = 60. That is.

Question 3082 | Mathematics Past Questions

1 dozen = #2.55
20 dozen = #X
Cross multiply
X# = #51
Now for oranges
2orange = 10k
100orange = Xk
Cross multiply
Xk = 500k
Therefore
20dozen and 100 oranges = ?
First convert 500k to naira
500k = #5
Hence
20 dozen + 100 oranges
= 51 + 5
= 56. That is.
Simple right

Question 3075 | Mathematics Past Questions

Note the digit numbering is from 1 to 366
The number of digit 1 is from 1 to 9
That is 9-1 = 8 + 1 = 9 × digit 1 = 9
Number of digit 2 is from 10 to 99
That is 99 - 10 = 89 + 1 = 90 × digit 2 = 180
Number of digit 3 is from 100 to 366
That is 366 - 100 = 266 + 1 = 267 × digit 3 = 801
Total digit used = digit no 1 + digit no 2 + digit no 3
= 9 + 180 + 801
= 990. That is it.

Question 3067 | Mathematics Past Questions

I = 36; it's not 516
P = 480
T = 3
I = PRT/100
Therefore
R = I100/PT
Substituting our value
R = 36 × 100 / 480×3
R = 2.5%. that's it.

Question 3054 | Mathematics Past Questions

%gain = 25
Sp = 35 × 7500 = 262500
Cp = ?
Profit = Sp - Cp
%gain = SP - Cp /Cp
25/100 = 262500 - Cp/Cp
25Cp = 26250000 - 100Cp
125Cp = 26250000
Cp = 210000
Therefore
Profit = 262500 - 210000
Profit = 52500
Hence 52500 should be the answer and not 26250

Question 3005 | Mathematics Past Questions

If 2 biros and 3 pencil is #18
Note a pencil is #2.5
Therefore 3 pencil will be
3 × 2.5 = 7.5
Subtract the total amount of pencil from 18
18 - 7.5 = 10.5 as the amount for the 2 biros
Now how much is a biro
Remember
2biro = #10.5
1biro = #x
Cross multiply
x# = #5.25. That's it

Question 2986 | Mathematics Past Questions

Let the number be x
8/x equation 1
3/x equation 2
But 8/x is 5 more than 3/x
Let the value of 3/x be y
Therefore
3/x = y equation 3
And
8/x = 5+y since it's 5 more than 3/x...... Equation 4
Final equations are
8/x = 5+y...... Equation 1
3/x = y....... Equation 2
Simple right
Now substitute the value of y in equation 2 for 1
8/x = 5+3/x
8/x = 5x+3/x
8x = 5x^2 + 3x
Collect like terms
8x-3x = 5x^2
5x = 5x^2
Therefore
5x - 5x^2 = 0
Now factorize
5x(1-x)=0
X =0
Or
X=1
Note x cannot be zero so
Our answer is 1.
Hence C is correct.
Clear right!!!

Question 2973 | Mathematics Past Questions

If 50men buid it in 60 days
How many more men is needed or should be added to the 50 men to finish same work in 40 days.
Xmen = 40 days
First we find the total men that can do the work in 40 days
Xmen x 40 days = 50men × 60 days
Xmen = 75
Now subtracting 50 men from 75 men will give the total that was added to the 50 men to finish the work in 40 day's
75-50= 25 men
Hence 25 men was added.

Question 2971 | Mathematics Past Questions

Odd numbers are numbers not divisible by 2.
Adding the odd numbers between 1 and 11.
Note that the word "between" is more like a weak inequality that accepts numbers from boundaries. Hence the odd number between 1 and 11
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 9 10 11
Are 1 3 5 7 9 11
Adding up this value, we will end up having and even number 36
Therefore A is correct. That's it

Question 2968 | Mathematics Past Questions

P×T=A
A= actual price
T= total price or marked price
P= probability
A= #16700
P=100-15/100=85/100
Therefore
85/100×T=16700
T=19649~19650
Hence the marked Price is 19650. That's it

Question 2966 | Mathematics Past Questions

In a leap year we have 366 days and 13 months.
If he bake 500,000 loaves in a leap year.
What will he bake in a day if he only works Mondays to Saturdays
If he does not work on Sundays, we have to subtract all Sundays from the year
Hence 366-52
We will be left with 314 working days.
Therefore
1 day = 500000loaves/314days =1592loaves
Now, for the month of February
We have only 24 working days
Therefore
1day = 1592loaves
24days = xloaves
Cross multiply
We have 38208 loaves for the month of February. That's it.

Question 2965 | Mathematics Past Questions

%gain= sp-cp/cp×100
Cp=1500
If 10 eggs were damage from the 100 eggs, we will be left with 90 eggs
Note; he sold the rest at #20 each
Therefore the SP will be
#20 = 1egg
#x = 90egg
X = 1800
That is SP for 90 eggs equal to 1800
Therefore
%gain =1800-1500/1500×100
= 20% gain.
