Q:

Two old friends, Jack and Bill, meet after a long time.Jack: Hey, how are you man? Bill: Not bad, got married and I have three kids nowJack: That’s awesome. How old are they?Bill: The product of their ages is 72 and the sum of their ages is the same as your birth date.Jack: Cool … But I still don’t know.Bill : My eldest kid just started taking piano lessons.Jack: Oh now I get it.How old are Bill’s kids ?

 A) 3, 3, 8 B) 2, 6, 6 C) 1, 6, 12 D) 1, 8, 9

Explanation:

Let’s break it down. The product of their ages is 72. So what are the possible choices?

2, 2, 18 – sum(2, 2, 18) = 22
2, 4, 9 – sum(2, 4, 9) = 15
2, 6, 6 – sum(2, 6, 6) = 14
2, 3, 12 – sum(2, 3, 12) = 17
3, 4, 6 – sum(3, 4, 6) = 13
3, 3, 8 – sum(3, 3, 8 ) = 14
1, 8, 9 – sum(1,8,9) = 18
1, 3, 24 – sum(1, 3, 24) = 28
1, 4, 18 – sum(1, 4, 18) = 23
1, 2, 36 – sum(1, 2, 36) = 39
1, 6, 12 – sum(1, 6, 12) = 19

The sum of their ages is the same as your birth date. That could be anything from 1 to 31 but the fact that Jack was unable to find out the ages, it means there are two or more combinations with the same sum. From the choices above, only two of them are possible now.

2, 6, 6 – sum(2, 6, 6) = 14
3, 3, 8 – sum(3, 3, 8 ) = 14

Since the eldest kid is taking piano lessons, we can eliminate combination 1 since there are two eldest ones. The answer is 3, 3 and 8.

Q:

What does it mean to calculate frequencies within a dataset?

 A) to calculate the product of two variables to make a third variable B) to count the number of cases that fall into different subgroups within a dataset C) to count the number of times a dataset is used by a student D) to calculate the sum of a column of variables in a dataset

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) to count the number of cases that fall into different subgroups within a dataset

Explanation:

Q:

Name a pair of complementary angles?

 A) B + C B) A + C C) C + C D) B + A

Explanation:

Complementary angles are those whose sum is 90.

Given here, is a right angled triangle, where anfle C is 90 deg. In this, sum of Angles A + C = 90, since, sum of angles in a right angled triangle = 180, angle C = 90 and

hence sum of A + B = 180 - C = 180 - 90 = 90.

Hence, the pair of cimplementary angles in the given triangle = Angle A + B.

Q:

Two angles whose sum is 90 are

 A) Supplementary angles B) corresponding angles C) Complimentary angles D) Alternate angles

Explanation:

Complimentary angles are those two angles whose sum is 90 whereas two angles whose sum is 180 are called Supplementary angles.

Q:

Smallest prime number greater than 200?

 A) 201 B) 205 C) 211 D) 203

Explanation:

From the trial and error method of division,

201 is divisible by 3

205 is divisible by 5

203 is divisible by 7

Hence, after eliminating three options, remained is 211 and is divisible by only 1 and itself.

Therefore, 211 is the smallest prime number greater than 200.

Q:

Which statement best compares a line and a point?

 A) A point has no dimension and a line has one dimension. B) A line can have line segments on it whereas a point cannot be on any line segment. C) point is a location whereas a line has several planes located on it D) A line can lie on a plane whereas a point cannot lie on a plane.

Answer & Explanation Answer: A) A point has no dimension and a line has one dimension.

Explanation:

A point has no dimension and a line has one dimension is the statement that best compares a line and a point.
