Q:

476 ** 0 is divisible by both 3 and 11.The non zero digits in the hundred's and ten's places are respectively:

A) 6 and 2 B) 8 and 2
C) 6 and 5 D) 8 and 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 8 and 5

Explanation:

Let the number  be 476ab0 

 

476ab0 is divisible by 3 

=> 4 + 7 + 6 + a + b + 0 is divisible by 3

=> 17 + a + b is divisible by 3 ------------------------(i)

 

476ab0 is divisible by 11

[(4 + 6 + b) -(7 + a + 0)] is 0 or divisible by 11

=> [3 + (b - a)] is 0 or divisible by 11  --------------(ii)

 

Substitute the values of a and b with the values given in the choices and select the values which satisfies both Equation 1 and Equation 2.

 

if a=6 and b=2, 

17 + a + b = 17 + 6 + 2 = 25 which is not divisible by 3 --- Does not meet equation(i).Hence this is not the answer

 

if a=8 and b=2, 

17 + a + b = 17 + 8 + 2 = 27 which is divisible by 3 --- Meet equation(i)

[3 + (b - a)] = [3 + (2 - 8)] = -3 which is neither 0 nor divisible by 11---Does not meet equation(ii).Hence this is not the answer

 

if a=6 and b=5, 

17 + a + b = 17 + 6 + 5 = 28 which is not divisible by 3 --- Does not meet equation (i) .Hence this is not the answer

 

 

if a=8 and b=5, 

17 + a + b = 17 + 8 + 5 = 30 which is divisible by 3 --- Meet equation 1

[3 + (b - a)] = [3 + (5 - 8)] = 0 ---Meet equation 2

Since these values satisfies both equation 1 and equation 2, this is the answer

Q:

If the product 4864*9 P 2 is divisible by 12, the value of p:

A) 1 B) 2
C) 3 D) 4
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1

Explanation:

clearly 4864 is divisible by 4
So 9 P 2 must be divisible by 3.So(9+P+2) must be divisible by 3.
so P=1.

Q:

If 60% of  of a number is 36, then the number is

A) 86 B) 94
C) 100 D) 115
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 100

Explanation:

Let the number be x.Then

60% of {\color{Black} \frac{3}{5}}of x=36.

{\color{Black} \Rightarrow }{\color{Black} \frac{60}{100}\times \frac{3}{5}\times x=36}

{\color{Black} \Rightarrow x=100}

Required number is 100.

Q:

A piece of ribbon 4 yards long is used to make bows requiring 15 inches of ribbon for each. What is the maximum number of bows that can be made?

A) 8 B) 9
C) 10 D) 11
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 9

Explanation:

The maximum number of bows will be 4 yards (= 4 x 36 inches) divided by 15 inches.

This gives 9.6. But as a fraction of a bow is no use, we can only make 9 bows.

Q:

 What is the greatest of 3 consecutive integers whose sum is 24 ?

A) 6 B) 7
C) 8 D) 9
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 9

Explanation:

The sum of three consecutive integers can be written as n + (n + 1) + (n + 2) = 3n + 3

If the sum is 24, we need to solve the equation 3n + 3 = 24;

=> 3n = 21;

=> n = 7

The greatest of the three numbers is therefore 7 + 2 = 9
