Q:

The sum of three numbers is 98. If the ratio of the first to the second is 2:3. And that of the second to the third is 5:8, then the second number is:

 A) 30 B) 27 C) 23 D) 33

Answer:   A) 30

Explanation:

Then, A:B = 2:3 and B:C = 5:8
= (5 x 3/5) : (8 x 3/5) = 3:24/5
A:B:C = 2:3:24/5
= 10:15:24 => B = 98 x 15/49 = 30.

Q:

What is the value of a two–digit number?

A. The sum of the digits is 15.
B. The difference of the squares of the digits is 45.
C. The difference of their digits is 3.

 A) B and C together are sufficient B) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient C) C and A together are sufficient D) A and B together are sufficient

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient

Explanation:

From the given data,

Let the two gits of a number be x & y

A) x + y = 15

B)

(x+y) (x - y) = 45

C) x - y = 3

From any 2 of the given 3 statements, we can find that 2 digit number as

2x = 18 => x = 9

=> y = 6

Hence, 2 digit number is 96.

Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient to find.

Q:

How can we get 24 as an answer by using 6, 11, 3 and 9?

Answer

This can be solved in two ways using only 6, 11, 9 and 3 we must get 24.

1. {[(11–6) x 3] + 9}

By solving this we get

5 x 3 + 9 = 15 + 9 = 24.

2. [(9–6) x (11–3)]

= 3 x 8 = 24.
