### Computer MCQs Series for PPSC, FPSC – Most Repeated MCQs | Set 5

• If the price of 6 toys is 264.37.
• The approximate price of 5 toys can be figure out in this way.

## Explanation

Two given entities here are

1. Toys
2. Cost

To determine the relation here, let suppose; approximate price of 5 toys = y

Case

Toys           Cost

6                 264.37

5                 y

• More toys means more cost.
• Small quantity of toys means less cost.

This clearly indicates that there is direct relation.

Direct/Indirect relation tells how the equation will be written.

6 : 5  ::  264.37 : y ________ (A)

After simplifying equation (A), we can easily figure out the value of y (y = 220)

## To Find

The approximate price of 5 toys = y

## Solution

Method I

Let suppose

Approximate price of 5 toys = y

Toys           Cost

6                 264.37

5                 y

Relation between toys and cost is direct, so;

6 : 5  ::  264.37 : y

6 x y = 5 x 264.37

y = 1321.85/6

y = 220.31

Approximate price of 5 toys = Rs. 220 answer

Method II

Price of 6 toys = 264.37

Price of 1 toy = 264.37/6

Price of 1 toy = 44.062

Price of 5 toys = 44.062 x 5

Price of 5 toys = 220.31

Approximate price of 5 toys = Rs. 220 answer

## Conclusion

If the price of 6 toys is 264.37. Then the approximate price of 5 toys is 220.
