A cylindrical container has a radius of eight inches with a height of three inches. Compute how many inches should be added to either the radius or height to give the same increase in volume?

A. 5
B. 5.33
C. 5.8
D. none of these

Ans. B

Let x be the amount of increase. The volume will increase by the same amount if the radius increased or the height is increased. So, the effect on increasing height is equal to the effect on increasing the radius. i.e., (22/7)*8*8*(3+x) = (22/7)*(8+x)*(8+x)*3 Solving the quadratic equation we get the x = 0 or 16/3. The possible increase would be by 16/3 inches.

Question 27

A. Attraction
B. Dislike
C. Choice
D. none of the above

Ans. B

Question 28

A. 4
B. 5
C. 6
D. 8

Ans. A

Average age of 3 members in family = 3* 27 After 5 years average of 3 members = 3* 27 +15 Average age of 4 members in family = 4 *25 Present age of child = 4 * 25 - ( 3 * 27 +15) =4

Bassoons and oboes are both double-reeded woodwind instruments of the same family.
