A) 1/8 B) 0
C) 1/4 D) 1
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 1/4

Explanation:

Non collision can happen only when all the cars move in same direction.

That is either all cars moving in clockwise direction or all cars moving in anti clockwise direction.
P(all cars not colliding)

= P(all cars moving in the same direction)

= P(all cars moving in clockwise direction)  +  P(all cars moving in anticlockwise direction)

= [p(A --> C) x p(C --> B) x p(B --> A)]  +  [p(A --> B) x p(B --> C) x p(C --> A)]

= [1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2] + [1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2]

= 1/8 + 1/8

= 1/4

Q:

Can you Solve the Problem ?

SOLVE1500443612.jpg image

Answer

Let the two digits be x & y


From given data in the question, we get


x + y = 3(x - y)


x + y = 3x - 3y


=> 2x = 4y


x/y = 2/1


For having the 2:1, numbers satisfying are


12, 21, 24, 42, 36, 63, 48, 84


From this 36 is eleminated because it is a perfect square and no others are prime or perfect squares.


Hence, there exists 7 such 2-digit numbers => 12, 21, 24, 42, 63, 48, 84.
