class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.1 (1)

1 Find the ratio of the following.

(a) Speed of cycle 15 km per hour to the speed of scooter 30 km per hour.

(b) 5m to 10 km (c) 50 paise to Rs 5

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.1 (1).

(a) Speed of cycle = 15 km/hr

Speed of scooter = 30 km/hr

Hence ratio of speed of cycle to that of scooter = 15:30= 1:2

(b) 1km = 1000 m

10 km = 10×1000 = 10000 m

Ratio=5 m: 10000 m=1: 2000

(c) Rs 1= 100 paise

Rs 5 = 5×100=500 paise

Hence ratio = 50 paise : 500 Paise =1: 10

5. If Chameli had Rs 600 left after spending 75% of her money, how much did she have in the beginning?

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.1 (5).

Let her money in the beginning be 2x According to question,

x-75% of x=600

⇒ x – (⁷⁵/₁₀₀)×x =600

⇒ x-(¾) × x=600

⇒ x(1-¾) = 600

⇒ x [⁽⁴⁻³⁾/₄]= 600

⇒ x= 600 × 4= ₹ 2400

Hence the money in the beginning was ₹ 2,400

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.1 (6)

6. If 60% people in a city like cricket, 30% like football and the remaining like other games, then what per cent of the people like other games? If the total number of people are 50 lakh, find the exact number who like each type of game.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.1 (6).

Number of people who like cricket = 60%

Number of people who like football = 30%

Number of people who like other games = 100% – (60% + 30%) = 10%

Now Number of people who like cricket = 60% of 50,00,000 = (⁶⁰/₁₀₀) × 50,00,000 =30,00,000

And Number of people who like football = 30% of 50,00,000 = (³⁰/₁₀₀)× 50,00,000

=15,00,000

Number of people who like other games = 10% of 50,00,000 = (¹⁰/₁₀₀) × 50,00,000

=5,00,000

Hence, number of people who like other games are 5 lakh.

#### Exercise 8.2

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (1)

1. A man got a 10% increase in his salary. If his new salary is Rs 1,54,000, find his original salary.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (1).

Let original salary be ‘x’

New salary i.e. 10% increase = x[⁽¹⁰⁰⁺¹⁰⁾/₁₀₀] =x × [⁽¹¹⁰⁾/₁₀₀]

According to problem,

x × [⁽¹¹⁰⁾/₁₀₀] = 1,54,000

⇒ x =1,54,000 × [⁽¹⁰⁰⁾/₁₁₀] = ₹ 1,40,000.

∴ Original salary = ₹ 1,40,000.

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (2)

2. On Sunday 845 people went to the Zoo. On Monday only 169 people went. What is the per cent decrease in the people visiting the Zoo on Monday?

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (2).

On Sunday, people went to the Zoo = 845

On Monday, people went to the Zoo = 169

Number of decrease in the people = 845 – 169 = 676

Decrease percent = [⁽⁶⁷⁶⁾/₈₄₅] × 100=80%

Hence decrease in the people visiting the Zoo is 80%.

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (3)

3. A shopkeeper buys 80 articles for Rs 2,400 and sells them for a profit of 16%. Find the selling price of one article.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (3).

Number of articles =80

Cost price of articles = ₹ 2,400

And profit percent = 16 %

Selling price of articles= 2,400 × [⁽¹⁰⁰⁺¹⁶⁾/₁₀₀]

=24 × 116 = ₹ 2784.

{∵ If a value increases x % multiply that value by [⁽¹⁰⁰⁺ˣ⁾/₁₀₀] to get new value}

∴ Selling price of 1 article = [⁽²⁷⁸⁴⁾/₈₀]= ₹ 34.80

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (4)

4. The cost of an article was Rs 15,500. Rs 450 were spent on its repairs. If it is sold for a profit of 15%, find the selling price of the article.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (4).

Cost price = ₹ 15,500 and cost for repair =₹450

∴ Total cost price = ₹15,500+₹450 =₹15,950

Profit % =15%

∴ Selling price = C.P ×{⁽¹⁰⁰⁺¹⁵⁾/₁₀₀}

{∵ If a value increases x % multiply that value by [⁽¹⁰⁰⁺ˣ⁾/₁₀₀] to get new value}

S.P=15,950×[⁽¹¹⁵⁾/₁₀₀]

S.P=18342.50

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (5)

5. A VCR and TV were bought for Rs 8,000 each. The shopkeeper made a loss of 4% on the VCR and a profit of 8% on the TV. Find the gain or loss percent on the whole transaction.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (5).

Cost price of VCR = ₹ 8000 and Cost price of TV = ₹8000

Total Cost Price of both articles = ₹8000 + ₹8000 = ₹16,000

Now VCR is sold at 4% loss.

∴ Selling price of VCR =C.P.×{⁽¹⁰⁰⁻⁴⁾/₁₀₀}

S.P of VCR =8000×[⁽⁹⁶⁾/₁₀₀] =80×96=₹7680

{∵ If a value decreases x % multiply that value by [⁽¹⁰⁰⁻ˣ⁾/₁₀₀] to get new value}

And TV is sold at 8% profit,

Then S.P of T.V =C.P×{⁽¹⁰⁰⁺⁸⁾/₁₀₀}

{∵ If a value increases x % multiply that value by [⁽¹⁰⁰⁺ˣ⁾/₁₀₀] to get new value}

S.P of T.V= 8000×[⁽¹⁰⁸⁾/₁₀₀]=₹8,640

Total Selling price =₹7680+₹8640=₹16,320

Since S.P>C.P

∴ Profit =S.P – C.P=16,320-16000=₹320

And profit%=(profit/C.P)×100= [⁽³²⁰⁾/₁₆₀₀₀]×100

=2%

class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (6)

6. During a sale, a shop offered a discount of 10% on the marked prices of all the items. What would a customer have to pay for a pair of jeans marked at Rs 1450 and two shirts marked at Rs 850 each?

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (6).

Rate of discount on all items = 10%

Marked Price of a pair of jeans = ₹1450 and Marked Price of a shirt = ₹850

Discount on pair of jeans= 10% of 1450

=[⁽¹⁰⁾/₁₀₀]×1450

=₹145

∴ Selling price of jeans=₹1450-₹145=₹1305

Marked price of two shirts=2×850=₹1700

Discount on two shirts=10% of ₹1700

=[⁽¹⁰⁾/₁₀₀]×1700

=₹170

∴ Selling price of two shirts=₹1700-₹170=₹1530

∴ The customer had to pay =₹1305+1530=₹2,835

7. A milkman sold two of his buffaloes for Rs 20,000 each. On one he made a gain of 5% and on the other a loss of 10%. Find his overall gain or loss.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.2 (7).

S.P of each buffalo =₹20,000

S.P of two buffaloes =2 ×₹20,000 =₹40,000.

One buffalo is sold at 5% gain.

C.P=[¹⁰⁰/₍₁₀₀₊ₚ₎]×S.P

{∵ S.P=C.P×[⁽¹⁰⁰⁺ᵖ⁾/₁₀₀] here, p=profit%}

C.P=[¹⁰⁰/₍₁₀₀₊₅₎]×20,000

C.P=[¹⁰⁰/₁₀₅]×20,000=₹19,047.62

Another buffalo is sold at 10% loss.

C.P=[⁽¹⁰⁰⁾/₍₁₀₀₋ₗ₎]×S.P

{∵ S.P=C.P×[⁽¹⁰⁰⁻ˡ⁾/₁₀₀] here, l=loss%}

C.P=[¹⁰⁰/₍₁₀₀₋₁₀₎]×20,000

C.P=[¹⁰⁰/₉₀]×20,000=22,222.22

Total C.P=₹19,047.62+₹22,222.22=₹41,269.84

Since C.P>S.P

∴ Here it is loss.

Loss=C.P-S.P=₹41,269.84-₹40,000=₹1,269.84

Selling price=₹1,600. And rate of discount=20%

M.P×[⁽¹⁰⁰⁻ˣ⁾/₁₀₀]=S.P. Here, X=discount percent.

{∵ If a value decreases x% multiply that value by [⁽¹⁰⁰⁻ˣ⁾/₁₀₀] to get new value}

⇒ M.P=S.P×[⁽¹⁰⁰⁾/₍₁₀₀₋ₓ₎]

M.P=marked price.

M.P=1,600×[⁽¹⁰⁰⁾/₍₁₀₀₋₂₀₎]

M.P=1,600×[⁽¹⁰⁰⁾/₍₈₀₎]

M.P=₹2,000

A=10000×[¹¹/₁₀]

A=₹11000

Interest for half year =[⁽¹¹⁰⁰⁰ˣ¹ˣ¹⁰⁾/₍₂ₓ₁₀₀₎] =₹550.

Total amount = ₹11,000 + ₹550 = ₹11,550

C.I. = A – P = ₹11,550 – ₹10,000 = ₹1,550

Yes, interest ₹ 1,576.25 is more than 1,550.

9. Find the amount which Ram will get on Rs 4096, if he gave it for 18 months at 12½% per annum, interest being compounded half yearly.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.3 (9).

Here, Principal (P)=₹4096, Time=18 months=1½ half years.

=3 half years {∵Compounded half yearly}

Rate of interest=(R)=(12½)%=(²⁵/₄)%{∵Compounded half yearly}

Amount=(A)=P[1+(ᴿ/₁₀₀)]ⁿ

A=4096×[1+(²⁵/₄₀₀)]³

A=4096×[1+(¹/₁₆)]³

A=4096×[¹⁷/₁₆]³

A=4096× (¹⁷/₁₆)×(¹⁷/₁₆)×(¹⁷/₁₆)

A=₹4,913

10. The population of a place increased to 54,000 in 2003 at a rate of 5% per annum

(i) find the population in 2001.

(ii) what would be its population in 2005?

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.3 (10).

(i)Here, A₂₀₀₃ = 54,000, R = 5%, n= 2 years Population would be less in 2001 than 2003 in two years. Here population is increasing.

A₂₀₀₃=P₂₀₀₁[1+(ᴿ/₁₀₀)]ⁿ

54000=P₂₀₀₁[1+(⁵/₁₀₀)]²

54000=P₂₀₀₁[1+(¹/₂₀)]²

54000=P₂₀₀₁(²¹/₂₀)²

54000=P₂₀₀₁×(²¹/₂₀)×(²¹/₂₀)

P₂₀₀₁=54000×[⁽²⁰ˣ²⁰⁾/₍₂₁ₓ₂₁₎]

P₂₀₀₁=48,980(approx.)

(ii) According to question, population is increasing.

∴ population in 2005,

A₂₀₀₅=P[1+(ᴿ/₁₀₀)]ⁿ

A₂₀₀₅=54000[1+(⁵/₁₀₀)]²

A₂₀₀₅=54000(²¹/₂₀)²

A₂₀₀₅=54000×(²¹/₂₀)×(²¹/₂₀)=59,535

Hence population in 2005 would be 59,535.

11. In a Laboratory, the count of bacteria in a certain experiment was increasing at the rate of 2.5% per hour. Find the bacteria at the end of 2 hours if the count was initially 5, 06,000.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.3 (11).

Here, Principal (P)=₹506000, Time=2 hours.

Rate of interest=(R)=2.5%

After 2 hours number of bacteria,

Amount=(A)=P[1+(ᴿ/₁₀₀)]ⁿ

A=506000×[1+(²·⁵/₁₀₀)]²

A=60000×[1+(²⁵/₁₀₀₀)]²

A=60000×[1+(¹/₄₀)]²

A=60000× (⁴¹/₄₀)×(⁴¹/₄₀)

A=5,31,616.25

Hence number of bacteria after two hours are 5,31,616 (approx.)

12. A scooter was bought at Rs 42,000. Its value depreciated at the rate of 8% per annum. Find its value after one year.

Solution to class 8 maths chapter 8 exercise 8.3 (12).

Here, Principal (P)=₹42000, Time=1year.

Rate of interest=(R)=8%

Given scooter value depreciated at the rate of 8% per annum.

Amount=(A)=P[1-(ᴿ/₁₀₀)]ⁿ

A=42000×[1-(⁸/₁₀₀)]¹

A=42000×[1-(²/₂₅)]

A=42000×[²⁷/₂₅]

A=42000× (²⁷/₂₅)

A=₹38,640

Hence, the value of scooter after one year is =₹38,640.
