Q:

The difference of squares of two numbers is 180. The square of the smaller number is 8 times the larger number. Find two numbers.

A) 10 & 12 B) 10 & 18
C) 12 & -18 D) -12 & 18

Answer:   D) -12 & 18



Explanation:

Given, difference of the squares of two numbers is 180.

k2 - l2 - 180

 

Also, square of the smaller number is 8 times the larger.

= l= 8k

 

Thus, k2 - 8a - 180 = 0

k2 – 18k + 10k - 180 = 0

→  k(k - 18) + 10(k – 18) = 0

= (k + 10)(k – 18) = 0

→  k = -10, 18

 

Thus, the other number is

324 - 180 = l2 

 

→ Numbers are 12, 18 or -12, 18.

Q:

First four multiples of 9?

Answer

A multiple of a number is the number multiplied by an integer.


The first four multiples of 9 are given by multiying the first 4 integers with number 9.


That is,


9 x 1 = 9


9 x 2 = 18


9 x 3 = 27


9 x 4 = 36


 


Hence, first four multiples of 9 are 9, 18, 27, 36.

C) 13/56 D) 11/46
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 12/49

Explanation:

In the given options,

12/49 can be written as 1/(49/12) = 1/4.083

7/30 can be written as 1/(30/7) = 1/4.285

13/56 can be written as 1/(56/13) = 1/4.307

11/46 can be written as 1/(46/11) = 1/4.1818

 

Here in the above,

1/4.083 has the smallest denominator and so 12/49 is the largest number or fraction.

Which of the following is a rational number?

A) 0.241 B) 1.732
C) 4 D) All of the above
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4

Explanation:

Any number which can be expressed as a fraction of two integers like P & Q as P/Q where Q is not equal to zero.

Every integer is a rational number since Q can be 1.

 

Hence, in the given options, 4 can be expressed as a simple fraction as 4/1. And all other options cannot be expressed as fractions.

 

Hence, 4 is a rational number in the given options.

A) 1 B) 0
C) -1 D) Infinity
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1

Explanation:

The mutiplicative inverse of a number is nothing but a reciprocal of a number.

Now, the product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is always equal to 1.

 

For example :

Let the number be 15

Multiplicative inverse of 15 = 1/15

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is = 15 x 1/15 = 1.
