QUESTION: 1

What is the sum in the Place value of 5 used in the following numbers: 567, 195, 573?

Solution:

► Place value of 5 in 567 = 5 x 100 = 500

► Place value of 5 in 195 = 5 x 1 = 5

► Place value of 5 in 573 = 5 x 100 = 500

► 500 + 5 + 500 = 1005

QUESTION: 2

a, b, and c are 3 single-digit numbers such that 0.abcabcabc..... = 51/111.

Find the value of a + b + c.

Solution:

► 0.abcabc.....is a non terminating recurring decimal number

► so as per the formula we discussed

• 0.abcabc .... = abc/999 = 51/111,

• abc = 51 x 9 = 459

► Since a, b and c are individual digits , a = 4; b = 5; and c = 9

• a + b + c = 18

QUESTION: 3

If abc is even, what would (a + b)(b + c)(c - a) would be?

Solution:

► For abc to be even there are three cases

► Case 1 : One of the three is Even

• Let a be even , b and c be odd

• (a + b)(b + c)(c - a) = (Even + Odd)(Odd + Odd)(Odd - Even)

• Odd x Even x Odd = Even

► Case 2 : Two of three are Even

• Let a and b be even and c be odd

• (a + b)(b + c)(c - a) = (Even + Even)(Even + Odd)(Odd - Even)

• Even x Odd x Odd = Even

► Case 3 : All three are Even

• (a + b)(b + c)(c - a) = (Even + Even)(Even + Even)(Even - Even)

• Even x Even x Even = Even

QUESTION: 4

If we subtract the square of two consecutive even numbers, by which natural number other than 1 would the difference be surely divisible by?

Solution:

► Since we know that the general expression for an even number is 2n, n being an Integer

► We are talking about two consecutive even numbers so,

let these numbers be 2n and 2(n+1)

► Difference of the square of two numbers would be [2(n+ 1)]^{2} − (2n)^{2}

= 4(n^{2} + 1 + 2n) − 4n^{2}

= 4n^{2} + 4 + 8n − 4n^{2}

= 4 + 8n

= 4(2n + 1)

QUESTION: 5

What is the smallest positive Rational number?

Solution:

► Option A : 0 is not positive

► Rational numbers consist of fractions as well as Integers.

► Fraction can go to as small as possible.

► E.g. Even 0.5 is smaller than the given options of 1 and 2.

QUESTION: 6

What is the largest three digit prime number?

Solution:

► Option A : 991 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 1, It is a prime number

► Option B : 993 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 3, so not a prime number

► Option C : 997 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 1, it is a prime number

► Option D : 989 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 5, but it is divisible by 23

997 is greater than 991

QUESTION: 7

Which of the following is a prime number?

Solution:

► Option A : 5791 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 1, It is a prime number.

► Option B : 5793 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 3, so not a prime number.

► Option C : 5795 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 5, but is divisible by 5.

► Option D : 5792 when divided 6 gives a remainder of 2, so not a prime number.

QUESTION: 8

The sum of first five, 3 digit prime numbers is:

Solution:

► First 5, 3 digit prime numbers are listed below:

► Their Sum is 533

QUESTION: 9

If a, (a+2), (a+4) are all prime numbers, how many such values can 'a' take?

Solution:

► The given terms are: a, a + 2, a + 4

► For Less than 5, We know of such a set: 3, 5 and 7

► For Prime numbers Greater than 5 we have two cases

► __Case 1__ : The Prime number on division by 6 gives a remainder of 1

• Let us assume a is a prime number

• So a = 6p + 1

• a + 2 = 6p +3. (This will be divisible by 3. Thus not a prime)

• a + 4 = 6p + 7

► __Case 2__ : The Prime number on division by 6 gives a remainder of 5

• Let us assume a is a prime number

• So a = 6p + 5

• a + 2 = 6p + 7

• a + 4 = 6p + 9 (This will be divisible by 3. Thus not a prime.)

► Hence there is only one such set.

QUESTION: 10

What is the sum of all the negative two digit prime numbers?

Solution:

► Prime numbers is a property of natural numbers, There are no negative prime numbers.

QUESTION: 11

What is the negative of sum of all the two digit prime numbers?

Solution:

► All the two digit Prime numbers are listed below:

►The sum is 1043

►The negative of this sum is - 1043

QUESTION: 12

For the equation (2a + 3b + 9c) to be even, we must have

Solution:

► Option A : b is Even

• 2a + 3b + 9c = 2 x any number + 3 x Even + 9 x any number = Even + Even + Odd/Even

• This does not give a sure shot result.

► Option B : c is Even

• 2a + 3b + 9c = 2 x any number + 3 x any number + 9 x Even = Even + Odd/Even + Even

• This does not give a sure shot result.

► Option D : Either of the two (b or c) is Even.

• 2a + 3b + 9c = 2 x any number + 3 x Even + 9 x any number = Even + Even + Odd/Even

• 2a + 3b + 9c = 2 x any number + 3 x any number + 9 x Even = Even + Odd/Even + Even

• This does not give a sure shot result.

► Option C = Both b and c are Even

• 2a + 3b + 9c = 2 x any number + 3 x Even + 9 x Even = Even + Even + Even = Even

• So only option C gives an even response.

QUESTION: 13

What is the difference between the highest and smallest 3 digit prime number?

Solution:

► Highest 3 digit prime number = 997

► Smallest 3 digit prime number = 101

► Difference = 997 - 101 = 896

QUESTION: 14

0.xyxyxyxy.... + 0.yxyxyxyx = 4/3, if x and y are natural numbers what would be the value of x + y?

Solution:

= x + y = 12

QUESTION: 15

What would the remainder when the square of the largest 4 digit prime number is divided by 6?

Solution:

It is +1 with exceptions of prime numbers below 6 obviously.

Any prime number above 6 is of the form:

6k + 1 or 6k - 1 ( A lot of people don't know this!))

So therefore squares is of the form (6k±1)^2. Expand this and clearly the only term which is not a multiple of 6 will be 1. Which again makes it of the form 6K + 1( now only + because we squared the whole term, Remember?)!.

So therefore the remainder is of the form +1.

So for every prime no. above 6, the remainder 1.

So, for 2, it is 4

For 3, it is 3.

For 5, it is 1.

For every otherprime. No. Square, It’s 1.
