Mastering Quantitative Aptitude for Exams

Here's a breakdown of key topics for the Quantitative Aptitude section, presented in a QA format with relevant examples, exercises, and study tips:

Ratio and Proportion:

Concept: Understanding the relationship between two quantities and expressing it as a fraction or ratio.

Examples:

If there are 3 red apples for every 5 green apples, the ratio of red to green apples is 3:5.

A recipe requires 2 cups of flour for every 1 cup of sugar. The proportion of flour to sugar is 2:1.

John can paint a wall in 6 hours, while Sarah can paint the same wall in 4 hours. The ratio of John's time to Sarah's time is 6:4.

If a shirt costs $40 and pants cost $60, the ratio of the shirt price to the pants price is 2:3.

In a class of 30 students, 18 are girls. The ratio of girls to boys is 18:12.

Exercises:

Practice solving problems that involve finding missing values in ratios and proportions.

Word problems often involve setting up ratios based on the information given.

Study Tips:

Memorize basic ratio and proportion formulas and practice applying them to solve problems.

Understand how to convert between ratios and fractions.

2. Time, Speed, and Distance :

Concept: Calculating relationships between time, speed, and distance using the formula: Speed =

Distance / Time.

Examples:

A car travels 200 km in 4 hours. What is its speed? (Speed = 200 km / 4 h = 50 km/h)

A train travels at 60 km/h. How long will it take to cover 300 km? (Time = Distance / Speed = 300 km / 60 km/h = 5 h)

If you walk 4 km in 1 hour, how far can you walk in 3 hours? (Distance = Speed x Time = 4 km/h x 3 h = 12 km)

A cyclist travels at 15 m/s. How far does he travel in 2 minutes (120 seconds)? (Distance = Speed x Time = 15 m/s x 120 s = 1800 m)

An airplane flies 800 km in 2 hours. What is its average speed if it encounters strong winds for the next hour, slowing down to 400 km for the final 1 hour of a 4-hour trip? (Average Speed = Total Distance / Total Time = 1200 km / 4 h = 300 km/h)

Exercises:

Practice solving problems that involve calculating time, speed, or distance when given two of the variables.

Word problems may involve additional factors like breaks or changes in speed.

Study Tips:

Master the time, speed, and distance formula and be comfortable rearranging it to solve for different variables.

Pay close attention to units (e.g., km/h, m/s) and ensure they are consistent throughout the problem.

3. Work and Time Equations :

Concept: Understanding how the amount of work completed depends on the rate of work (efficiency) and the time spent working.
