## Number Solved Questions For IBPS, SBI and Other Bank Exams - Page 7

**Question 1**

Subtracting 35% of a number from the number we get the result as 99 9/20 then the number is:

a) 168 b) 159 c) 153 d) 172

**Answer :** c)153

Solution :

Let X be the number.

Then the 35% of the number is 35X/100.

And the Subtraction of 35% of the number from the number is X - 35X/100 = 65X/100.

65X / 100 = 99 9/20

65X / 100 = 1989/20

65X = 198900/20 = 9945

X = 9945/65 = 153

Hence the required number is 153.

**Question 2**

The number which when added five-third times to itself gives 216 then the number is:

a) 81 b) 36 c) 42 d) 93

**Answer :** a)81

**Solution :**

Let the number be X.

Five-third of X = 5X / 3

Given that when added five-third times to itself gives 216

i.e., 5X/3 + X = 8X/3 = 216

8X = 648

X = 81

Hence the required answer is 81.

**Question 3**

A number exceeds 50 by 72%, then the number obtained is:

a) 26 b) 46 c) 66 d) 86

**Answer:** d)86

Solution:

Let the number be X.

Given that the number exceeds 50 by 72%.

i.e., X = 50 + 50 x 72/100

X = 50 + 36 = 86

Hence the required answer is 86.

**Question 4**

If a number when divided by 6 is reduced by 30 then the number is

a) 16 b) 36 c) 56 d) 76

**Answer:** b)36

Solution:

Let the number be X.

Given that X is reduced by 30 when divided by 6.

i.e., X/6 = X - 30

X = 6X - 180

-5X = -180

X = 36

Hence the required number is 36.
