Q:

There are four consecutive even integers. Sum of the reciprocals of the first two number is (11/60). Find the reciprocal of third largest number of the series.

 A) 1/12 B) 2/14 C) 1/14 D) 2/13

Explanation:

Ans. C.
Let 4 consecutive even numbers are x, x+ 2, x+ 4, x+ 6
According to the question -
1/x + 1/x+2 = 11/60
x+2+x/ x(x+2) = 11/60
2(x+1)/x^2 + 2x = 11/60
120x + 120 = 11x 2 + 22x
11x 2 - 98x – 120 = 0
So ,
X = -24/22 , 10
X = -12/11 , 10
So, the numbers will be 10,12,14,16.
Hence,
Third largest number = 14
Reciprocal of third number = 1/14
