Q:

Find the sum to 200 terms of the series 2 + 5 + 7 + 6 + 12 + 7 + ....

A) 30,400 B) 30,200
C) 34,600 D) 38,400
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 30,400

Explanation:

we can treat every two consecutive terms as one.
So, we will have a total of 100 terms of the nature:
(2 + 5) + (7 + 6) + (12 + 7).... => 7, 13, 19,....

 

We know the sum of n terms  nn+12

 

Now, a= 7, d=6 and n=100
Hence the sum of the given series is
S= 100/2 x[2 x 7 + 99 x 6]
=> 50[608]
=> 30,400.

Q:

Two bus tickets from city K to L and three tickets from city K to M cost Rs. 77,  but three tickets from city K to L and two tickets from city K to M cost Rs. 73. What are the fares for cities L and M from K ?

A) Rs. 13 and Rs. 17 B) Rs. 17 and Rs. 19
C) Rs. 23 and Rs. 17 D) Rs. 13 and Rs. 19
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 13 and Rs. 17

Explanation:

If fares for cities L and M from K are x and y respectively, then

2x + 3y = 77 or 6x + 9y = 231...(1)
3x + 2y = 73 or 6x + 4y = 146...(2)

subtracting 2 from 1, we get

5y = 85

y = Rs. 17 => x = Rs. 13

Q:

The difference between two numbers is 3355. When the larger number is divided by the smaller one, the quotient is 6 and the remainder is 15. The smaller number and larger number respectively ?

A) 546, 3901 B) 415, 3770
C) 668, 4023 D) 404, 3759
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 668, 4023

Explanation:

Let the smaller number be k.
Then, larger number = (3355 + k)
Therefore 3355 + k = (6k + 15)
‹=› 5k = 3340
‹=› k = 668.

Therefore, the smaller number k = 668 and now the larger number = 3355+668 = 4023.

Q:

(3x + 2) (2x - 5) = ax² + kx + n. What is the value of  a - n + k ?

A) 4 B) 1
C) 5 D) 3
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 5

Explanation:

(3x + 2) (2x - 5) = ax2+kx+n ...............(1)

 

But (3x + 2)(2x - 5) = 6x2-11x-10........(2)

 

so by comparing (1) & (2),

 

we get a= 6, k= -11 , n= -10

 

(a - n + k) = 6 + 10 - 11 = 5.
