Q:

Find the value of 'n' for which the nth term of two AP'S:

15,12,9.... and -15,-13,-11...... are equal?

A) n = 2 B) n = 5
C) n = 29/5 D) n = 1
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) n = 29/5

Explanation:

Given are the two AP'S:

15,12,9.... in which a=15, d=-3.............(1) 

-15,-13,-11..... in which a'=-15 ,d'=2.....(2)

 

now using the nth term's formula,we get

a+(n-1)d = a'+(n-1)d'

substituting the value obtained in eq. 1 and 2,

15+(n-1) x (-3) = -15+(n-1) x 2

=> 15 - 3n + 3 = -15 + 2n - 2

=> 12 - 3n = -17 + 2n

=> 12+17 = 2n+3n

=> 29=5n

=> n= 29/5

Q:

What was the day of the week on 17th June, 1998 ?

A) Monday B) Tuesday
C) Wednesday D) Friday
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Wednesday

Explanation:

17th June, 1998 = (1997 years + Period from 1.1.1998 to 17.6.1998)
Odd days in 1600 years = 0
Odd days in 300 years = 1
97 years has 24 leap years + 73 ordinary years.
Number of odd days in 97 years ( 24 x 2 + 73) = 121 = 2 odd days.
Jan. Feb. March. April. May. June.
(31 + 28 + 31 + 30 + 31 + 17) = 168 days
168 days = 24 weeks = 0 odd day.
Total number of odd days = (0 + 1 + 2 + 0) = 3.
Given day is Wednesday.
