### There are 6561 balls out of them 1 is heavy. Find the minimum number of times the balls have to be weighed for finding out the heavy ball.

Detailed Solution for L&T Aptitude Paper 1 - Question 2

Comparing weight of two groups. Now take the heaviest - and sub-divide into 3 more groups 2187/3 = 729

Take the heaviest - divide into 3 - 729/3 = 243.

Take the heaviest - divide into 3 - 243/3 = 81.

Take the heaviest - divide into 3 - 81/3 = 27.

Take the heaviest - divide into 3 - 27/3 = 9

Take the heaviest - divide into 3 - 9/3 = 3.

Take the heaviest - divide into 3 - 3/3 = 1.

So, minimum number of weights = 8

After the 5th thief has stolen there are no more loaves left in the bakery. What was the total number of loaves did the bakery have at the beginning?

let y be the total number of loaves

a be the remaining loaves after 1st thief

b be the remaining loaves after 2nd thief

.e = 0 be the remaining loaves after 5th thief

a = y - 0.5y - 0.5

= 0.5y - 0.5

b = a - 0.5a - 0.5

= 0.5a - 0.5

c = 0.5b - 0.5

d = 0.5c - 0.5

e = 0.5d - 0.5 but e = 0,

If I decrease my speed by 20% of original speed, I reach office 7 minute late. What is my usual time and new time of reaching office?

Detailed Solution for L&T Aptitude Paper 1 - Question 12

Since speed is decreased by 20% i.e. 1/5 of the original. New speed will become 4/5 of the original speed.

For the same distance, the time will become 5/4 of original time.

Therefore new time increase by 4 1 of the original.

This is given equal to 7 minutes.

So Usual time = 7 - 4 = 28 minutes and New time = 28 + 7 = 35 minutes.
