Megha got 38% of the maximum marks in an examination and failed by 6 marks. In the same examination Teena got 42% of the total marks which is 14 marks more than the passing marks. What were the passing marks in the examination?

Let x is the maximum marks of the examination. Given that Megha failed by 6 marks ⇒ Minimum Pass Mark = 38x/100 + 6......(Equation 1) Given that Teena got 14 marks more than the passing marks ⇒Minimum Pass Mark =42x/100 −14......(Equation 2) From equations 1 and 2, we have => 38x/100 + 6 = 42x/100 − 14 ⇒4x/100 = 20 ⇒ x = 100 × 20/4 = 500 ⇒ Maximum marks of the examination = x = 500 Minimum Pass Mark = 38 × 500/100 + 6 = 190 + 6 = 196

- A boat, whose speed in still water is 25% more than the speed of the current, covers 810 km downstream in _____ hours. The speed of the boat in still water is ______ km. The values given in which of the following options will fill the blanks in the same order in which is it given to make the statement true: I. 20, 24 II. 10, 45 III. 30, 15
- The downstream speed of a boat is 6 km/hr more than its upstream speed and the ratio of the speed of the boat in still water to the speed of the stream is 10:3. Find the total time taken by boat to travel 52 km downstream and 42 km upstream?
- Speed of a boat in still water to speed of boat in upstream is 10:7. If the boat can travel 390 km in downstream in 5 hours, then find the time taken by the boat to cover 18 km in still water.
- Two boats A and B start towards each other from two places, 600 km apart. Speed of the boat A and B in still water are 23 km/h and 17 km/h respectively. If A and B proceeds against and with the stream, respectively then after how much time will they meet?
- Two boats X and Y start towards each other from two places, 155 km apart. Speed of the boat X and Y in still water are 14 km/hr and 17 km/hr respectively. If X proceeds down and Y up the stream, they will meet after.
- Find the ratio between the speed of the boat and the speed of the stream. The speed of the boat while travelling upstream is 24km/hr. The boat can travel P km in Q hours while travelling upstream and 144 km in Q hours while travelling downstream. The number of hours taken by the boat to travel 216km upstream is R hours more than that while travelling the same distance in downstream. I. The number of hours taken by the boat to cover (R x R) km distance in downstream is 18 hrs. II. P - Q
^{3}+ R^{3}> 102 - Speed of a boat in still water is 10 kmph and speed of stream is 7 kmph. A man rows to a place at a distance of 51 km and come back to starting point. The total time taken by him is:
- Speed of a boat in still water is 9 kmph and speed of stream is 6 kmph. A man rows to a place at a distance of 30 km and come back to starting point. The total time taken by him is:
- A man can row at 5 kmph in still water. If the velocity of current is 1 kmph and it takes him 5 hour to row to a place and come back, how far is the place?
- The speed of a boat in still water is 8 km/hr and the speed of the stream is 2 km/hr. A man rows to a place at a distance of 30 km and comes back to the starting point. The total time taken by him is:
