Q:

54 is to be divided into two parts such that the sum of 10 times the first and 22 times the second is 780. The bigger part is :

A) 24 B) 34
C) 44 D) 54

Answer:   B) 34



Explanation:

Let the two parts be (54 - x) and x.

Then, 10 (54 - x) + 22x = 780

=> 12x = 240  

=>  x = 20.

Bigger part = (54 - x)  = 34.

Q:

What is the common ratio of the following geometric sequence?

4, 2, 1, 0.5, 0.25, 0.125,...

A) 0.5 B) -1
C) 1.5 D) -0.5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 0.5

Explanation:

In mathematics, a geometric progression, also known as a geometric sequence, is a sequence of numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a fixed, non-zero number called the common ratio.

 

Herein the given sequence, 4, 2, 1, 0.5, 0.25, 0.125,...

Common Ratio r = 2/4 = 1/2 = 0.5/1 = 0.25/0.5 = 0.125/0.25 == 0.5.

Q:

What is the place value of 6 in 64?

A) 6 B) 60
C) 64 D) 10
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 60

Explanation:

We know that,

● Each digit has a fixed position called its place.

● Each digit has a value depending on its place called the place value of the digit.

● The face value of a digit for any place in the given number is the value of the digit itself

● Place value of a digit = (face value of the digit) × (value of the place).

 

Hence, the place value of 6 in 64 = 6 x 10 = 60.

Q:

There are 5 consecutive odd numbers. If the difference between square of the average of first two odd number and the of the average last two odd numbers is 396, what is the smallest odd number?

A) 29 B) 27
C) 31 D) 33
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 29

Explanation:

Let the five consecutive odd numbers be x-4, x-2, x, x+2, x+4

According to the question,

Difference between square of the average of first two odd number and the of the average last

two odd numbers is 396

i.e, x+3 and x-3

x + 32 - x - 32 = 396 x2 + 9 + 6x - x2 + 6x - 9 = 396 12x = 396 x = 33

 

Hence, the smallest odd number is 33 - 4 = 29.
