2nd no = (1 - 0.37)x = 0.63x
=2nd/1st = 0.63x / 0.7x   = 0.9 = 90%

Solution
5000 (1.02)2 = new population = 5202

Q3. Out of a number of electronics items, a person purchases 60% coloured TV 5% of these were found to be defective. The percentage of defective TVs in all is:
•  3%

Old radius = r; Old area = pr2
New radius = r(1 + 2) = 3r
New area = p(3r)2 = 97pr2
Increasein area% ={(9pr2 -pr2)/ pr2)}
= 800%
