(a) x/(x–63)=2
(b) (63–x)/x=2
(c) (x–63)/x=2
(d) x/(63–x)=2

Solutions
S1. Ans.(c)
Sol.
3x – 8 = 2x – 9
⇒ 3x – 2x = – 9 + 8
⇒ x = –1

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol.
As x is inversely proportional to y, x = k/y ⇒ y = k/x
Let X and Y be the new values of x and y respectively.
∴ X = x + 10% of x
= x+10/100 of x
= x+1/10 x = 11/10 x
Now, Y = k/X = k/(11/10 x)
= 10/11 (k/x) = 10/11 y
Decrease in y = y –10/11 y = 1/11 y
∴ Percentage decrease = (1/11 y)/y×100 = 100/11%

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol.
x/2+2/3=1/3
⇒ x/2 = 1/3–2/3
⇒ x/2 = –1/3
⇒ x = –2/3

S4. Ans.(c)
Sol.
x/21+1/7 = 1/3
⇒ x/21 = 1/3–1/7
⇒ x/21 = (7–3)/21
⇒ x/21 = 4/21
⇒ x = 4

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol.
3x/2–x = x/2+3
⇒ 3x/2–x/2 = 3 + 2
⇒ 2x/2 = 5
⇒ x = 5

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol.
(x+1)^4–(x –1)^4
= [(x+1)^2 ]^2–[(x–1)^2 ]^2
= [(x+1)^2+(x–1)^2 ][(x+1)^2–(x–1)^2 ]
= [2 (x^2+1)][4×x×1]
= 8x(x^2+1)
Therefore, the given expression is always divisible by 8.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.
The given expression is
x^2–y^2+x+y –z^2+2yz –z
= x^2–(y^2+z^2 –2yz)+x+y –z
= x^2–(y–z)^2+x+y –z
= (x+y–z)(x–y+z)+(x+y –z)
= (x+y –z)(x –y+z+1)
∴ x – y +z + 1 is a factor of the given expression.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.
x² + 7x + 10 = x² + 5x + 2x + 10
= x (x + 5) + 2 (x + 5)
= (x + 5) (x + 2)
x² – 3x – 10 = x² – 5x + 2x – 10
= x (x – 5) + 2 (x – 5)
= (x – 5) (x + 2)
Hence, the common factor x + 2.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Let the smallest integer be x.
∴ Two other integers are
x + 1 and x + 2
x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 99
⇒ 3x + 3 = 99
⇒ 3x = 96
⇒ x = 32
Three integers are 32, 33 and 34.
Hence, the smallest integer = 32.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol.
One number = x
∴ Another number = x/2
According to the question,
x+x/2 = 63
⇒ x/2 = 63 –x
⇒ x/(63–x) = 2
