Q:

Three different containers contain 1365 litres, 1560 litres and 1755 litres of mixtures of milk and water respectively. What biggest measure that can measure all the different quantities exactly ?

A) 37 lit B) 97 lit
C) 129 lit D) 195 lit
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 195 lit

Explanation:

From the given data,

containers contain mixtures of milk and water as 1365 lit, 1560 lit and 1755 lit.

 

Biggest measure that can measure all these different quantities exactly can be given by

HCF of (1365, 1560, 1755) 

That can be found as 

 

HCF of 1365, 1755 = 195

Now, HCF of 195 and 1560 = 195

 

Hence, biggest measure that can measure all the given different quantities exactly is 195 lit.

Q:

If the HCF of 210 and 55 is expressible in the form of 210 x 5 + 55P, then value of P = ?

A) -23 B) 27
C) 16 D) -19

Q:

A drink vendor has 368 liters of Maaza, 80 liters of Pepsi and 144 liters of Sprite. He wants to pack them in cans, so that each can contains the same number of liters of a drink, and doesn't want to mix any two drinks in a can. What is the least number of cans required ?

A) 47 B) 46
C) 37 D) 35
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 37

Explanation:

The number of liters in each can = HCF of 80, 144 and 368 = 16 liters.
Number of cans of Maaza = 368/16 = 23
Number of cans of Pepsi = 80/16 = 5
Number of cans of Sprite = 144/16 = 9
The total number of cans required = 23 + 5 + 9 = 37 cans.

Q:

H.C.F of 4 x 27 x 3125, 8 x 9 x 25 x 7 and 16 x 81 x 5 x 11 x 49 is :

A) 360 B) 180
C) 90 D) 120
