Q:

The total weight of a tin and the cookies it contains is 2 pounds. After ¾ of the cookies are eaten, the tin and the remaining cookies weigh 0.8 pounds. What is the weight of the empty tin in pounds?

 A) 0.2 B) 0.3 C) 0.4 D) 0.5

Explanation:

Let the weight of the empty tin = w

(2 - w) = weight of the cookies; and one quarter of the cookies weigh (2 - w)/4

One quarter of the cookies + tin = 0.8 = w + (2 - w)/4

Multiply through by 4; 3.2 = 4w + 2 - w

1.2 = 3w; w = 0.4

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

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

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

Explanation:

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

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