**11. A solution is to be kept between 68° F and 77° F. What is the range in temperature in degree Celsius (C) if the Celsius / Fahrenheit (F) conversion formula is given by F = (9/5) C + 32?**

**Solution: **According to the question,

The solution has to be kept between 68° F and 77° F.

So, we get 68° < F < 77° ……(i)

Putting in (i)

Multiplying by 5

Divide by 9

⇒ 20 < C < 25

Hence, we get

The range of temperature in degree Celsius is between 20° C to 25° C.

**12. A solution of 8% boric acid is to be diluted by adding a 2% boric acid solution to it. The resulting mixture is to be more than 4% but less than 6% boric acid. If we have 640 litres of the 8% solution, how many litres of the 2% solution will have to be added?**

**Solution: **According to the question,

8% of solution of boric acid = 640 litres

Let the amount of 2% boric acid solution added = x litres

Then, we have

Total mixture = x + 640 litres

We know that

The resulting mixture has to be more than 4% but less than 6% boric acid.

∴ 2% of x + 8% of 640 > 4% of (x + 640) and

2% of x + 8% of 640 < 6% of (x + 640)

Taking first inequality

2% of x + 8% of 640 > 4% of (x + 640)

⇒ (2/100) × x + (8/100) × 640 > (4/100) × (x + 640)

⇒ 2x + 5120 > 4x + 2560

⇒ 5120 – 2560 > 4x – 2x

⇒ 2560 > 2x

⇒ x < 1280 ….(i)

Taking second inequality

2% of x + 8% of 640 < 6% of (x + 640)

⇒ (2/100) × x + (8/100) × 640 < (6/100) × (x + 640)

⇒ 2x + 5120 < 6x + 3840

⇒ 6x – 2x > 5120 – 3840

⇒ 4x > 1280

⇒ x > 320 ……….(i)

From (i) and (ii),

320 < x < 1280

Therefore, the number of litres of 2% of boric acid solution that has to be added will be more than 320 litres but less than 1280 litres.

**13. How many litres of water will have to be added to 1125 litres of the 45% solution of acid so that the resulting mixture will contain more than 25% but less than 30% acid content?**

**Solution: **According to the question,

45% of solution of acid = 1125 litres

Let the amount of water added = x litres

Resulting mixture = x + 1125 litres

We know that,

The resulting mixture has to be more than 25% but less than 30% acid content.

Amount of acid in the resulting mixture = 45% of 1125 litres

∴ 45% of 1125 < 30% of (x + 1125) and 45% of 1125 > 25% of (x + 1125)

Taking first inequality

45% of 1125 < 30% of (x + 1125)

⇒ 45 × 1125 < 30x + 30 × 1125

⇒ (45 – 30) × 1125 < 30x

⇒ 15 × 1125 < 30x

⇒ x > 562.5 ………..(i)

Taking second inequality

45% of 1125 > 25% of (x + 1125)

⇒ 45 × 1125 > 25x + 25 × 1125

⇒ (45 – 25) × 1125 > 25x

⇒ 25x < 20 × 1125

⇒ x < 900 …..(ii)

∴ 562.5 < x < 900

Therefore, the number of litres of water that has to be added will have to be more than 562.5 litres but less than 900 litres.

**14. IQ of a person is given by the formula, ,
where MA is mental age and CA is chronological age. If 80 ≤ IQ ≤ 140 for a group of 12 years old children, find the range of their mental age.**

**Solution: **According to the question,

Chronological age = CA = 12 years

IQ for the age group of 12 is 80 ≤ IQ ≤ 140.

We get that

80 ≤ IQ ≤ 140

Substituting,

We get

Multiply by 12

Divide by 100

∴ Range of mental age of the group of 12 years old children is 9.6 ≤ MA ≤ 16.8
