The G.C.D of 1.08, 0.36 and 0.9 is

A) 0.03 | B) 0.9 |

C) 0.18 | D) 0.108 |

Explanation:

Given numbers are 1.08 , 0.36 and 0.90

H.C.F of 108, 36 and 90 is 18 [ G.C.D is nothing but H.C.F]

H.C.F of given numbers = 0.18

L.C.M of two prime numbers x and y (x>y) is 161. The value of 3y-x is :

A) -2 | B) -1 |

C) 1 | D) 2 |

Explanation:

H. C. F of two prime numbers is 1. Product of numbers = 1 x 161 = 161.

Let the numbers be a and b . Then , ab= 161.

Now, co-primes with product 161 are (1, 161) and (7, 23).

Since x and y are prime numbers and x >y , we have x=23 and y=7.

3y-x = (3 x 7)-23 = -2

The H.C.F and L.C.M of two numbers are 11 and 385 respectively. If one number lies between 75 and 125 , then that number is

A) 77 | B) 88 |

C) 99 | D) 110 |

Explanation:

Product of numbers = 11 x 385 = 4235

Let the numbers be 11a and 11b . Then , 11a x 11b = 4235 ab = 35

Now, co-primes with product 35 are (1,35) and (5,7)

So, the numbers are ( 11 x 1, 11 x 35) and (11 x 5, 11 x 7)

Since one number lies 75 and 125, the suitable pair is (55,77)

Hence , required number = 77
