All the page numbers in a book are added, beginning from page 1. However, a page number was added twice by mistake. If the sum obtained was 850, which page number must have been added twice?
Let the total number of pages in the book be ‘n’.
Let page number ‘x’ be repeated.
⇒ x + n(n+1) /2 = 850
So, n(n+1)/2 ≤ 850
⇒ n2 + n ≤ 1700
The greatest possible value of n = 40.
Now, for n = 40, n(n+1)/2 = 40×41/2 = 820
So, x = 30.
If × stands for 'addition', ÷ stands for 'subtraction', + stands for 'multiplication' and - stands for 'division', then 20 × 8 ÷ 8 - 4 + 2 = ?
By the Given data, we have the expression:
⇒ 20 + 8 - 8 ÷ 4 × 2
⇒ 20 + 8 - 2 × 2
⇒ 28 - 4

The ratio of the CP and SP of an item is 10:11.
What is the gain percent?
Let profit% be x
Profit = SP-CP
profit%= Profit/CP x 100

Palak is 34th from left. And there are 74 girls in the row. Palak’s rank from right is (74 – 34 + 1) = 41
The average of four consecutive even numbers is 27. The largest of these numbers is:
Let the numbers be

x = 24
Largest number x+6 = 30
Find the value of expression 98-99+100-101+102_____ Up to 1000 terms.
Here, 98-99 = -1
100-101 = -1
102-103 = -1
And, so on
Therefore, total term of -1 will be 1000/2=500
So, the value of expression = 500×-1= -500.
Three papers set Times of India, The Hindu, and Hindustan containing 120, 220 and 300 papers respectively. These papers have to stack in such a way that all the papers are stored name wise in room and height of each stack is same. Then total number of stacks will be.
Firstly, find the HCF of 120, 220 and 300
= prime factors of 120 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5
= prime factor of 220 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 11
= prime factor of 300 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5
So, HCF = 2 × 2 × 5 = 20
Therefore, we make stack of 20 papers each
= 6 + 11+15 = 32
Consider the word MALAYALAM. Whichever way you read it, from left to right or from right to left, you get the same word. Such a word is known as palindrome. Find the maximum possible number of 7-letter palindromes.
The first letter from the right can be chosen in 26 ways because there are 26
Having chosen this, the second letter can be chosen in 26 ways.
⇒ The first two letters can be chosen in 26×26 ways Having chosen the first two letters, the third letter can be chosen in 26 ways.
⇒ The first three letters can be chosen in 26 × 26 × 26 ways. Having chosen the first three letters, the fourth letter can be chosen in 26 ways.
⇒ All the four letters can be chosen in (26 × 26 × 26 × 26) = 264 ways.
It implies that the maximum possible number of seven letter palindromes is because the fifth is same as the third letter; the sixth letter is the same as the second letter and seventh is same as the first

In a particular month of a year, it is observed that there are 5 Tuesday and all other days appear less than 5 times.
Q. This particular month referred is
If in any month a day repeats 5 times, and other days repeats only 4 times.
Then it has to be February 5 Tuesdays + (6 other days x 4)
If x $ y = (x + y + xy –1) (x + y + xy + 1), then the value of (5 $ 10) is.
As per the definition of $, (5$10) would be (5 + 10 + 5 × 10 - 1) (5 + 10 + 5 × 10 + 1) = 4224. So, answer is (a)
In a particular month of a year, it is observed that there are 5 Tuesday and all other days appear less than 5 times.
Q. First day of the next month is
The given month has to start and end with Tuesday so the next month has to start with Wednesday.
The product of four consecutive natural numbers plus one is

One Amoeba splits into ten Amoeba to form the next generation, but due to the prevailing ecological conditions, only 50% survive. If the number of surviving amoebas in the 6th generation is 3125, what must have been their number in the first generation?
Let there be ‘x’ Amoeba in the first generation, i.e. n1 = x.
So, n2 = 10x, but only 50% survive,
So, n2, survived = 10x/2 = 5x.
n3 = 10(5x), but only 50% survive,
So, n3, survived = 10(5x)/2 = 25x = 52x.
Similarly, n6, survived = 56-1 x = 55x
Now, it’s given that: 55x = 3125
⇒ 3125x = 3125
∴ x = 1.
In aid of charity, every soldier in a battalion contributes as many rupees as the number of soldiers in that battalion. With the additional contribution of Rs. 50 by one soldier only, the total collection is Rs. 25105. Then how many soldiers are there in the battalion?
Let the number of Soldiers in Battalion be N
Earlier, each Soldier will give Rs. N
Earlier total collection was
(Number of Soldiers) x (each's contribution) (N) x (N) = N²
Now, one Soldier's contribution is increased by 50, So, total collection now = N x N + 50= 251051 N² + 50= 251051
N² = 251051 – 50
N² = 251001
So, N2 = 501², N = 501 or -501 But number of Soldiers can’t be negative, so N = 501 Therefore, number of Soldiers = 501

There are 680 metal balls, each with a diameter of 20 mm, stacked in a pile, with 1 ball on the top, 3 balls in the second layer, 6 in the third layer, 10 in the fourth layer, and so on. What is the number of horizontal layers in the pile?
Let the number of horizontal layers in the pile = n.
Then, the number of balls in a layer = n(n+1)/2 (putting n = 1, 2, 3 etc. will give the number of balls in a layer).
So, ∑ n(n+1)/2 = 680
⇒ 1/2 *∑n2 + ∑n+ = 680
⇒ 1/2 [n(n+1)(2n+1)/6+n(n+1)/2] = 680
⇒ (1/2) n(n+1)/2 [(2n+1)/3+1] = 680
⇒ n(n+1)(n+2)/6 = 680
⇒ n (n+1) (n+2) = 6×680
n (n+1) (n+2) = 15×16×17
∴ n = 15.
Find the number that should come in the white circle in the figure given below:
The number in the circles are given by the sum of first n natural numbers.
So, Sn = n(n+1)/2 S1 = 1; S2 = 3; S3 = 6; S4 = 10; S5 = 15; S6 = 21; S7 = 28; S8 = 36; S9 = 45
Note: You may also solve it considering it to be a question of series,
wherein the difference between the terms is continuously increasing by 1.
Hence, option (a) is the correct answer
The monthly average salary paid to all the employees of a company was Rs. 12000. The monthly average salary paid to male and female employees was Rs. 14000 and Rs. 10000 respectively. Then the percentage of males employed in the company is:
Let total no of the male employee be x
Total no of the female be y
Then total salary of all male = 14000 * x
The total salary of all female =10000 * y
But as per question total salary of all the employee = 12000(x + y)
So [(14000 * x) + (10000 * y)] = 12000(x + y)
By equating we will find x/y = 1/1
So the percentage of female employee = 1/2 * 100 = 50%
Sai and Dia started a business investing Rs.185000 and Rs.225000, respectively. If Dia's share in the profit earned by them is Rs. 9000, what is the total profit earned by them together.
The profit ratio for Sai and Dia is
185000*12 : 225000*12
37:45 = x : 9000
Therefore x = 7400
Total Profit = 7400+9000 = 16400
Total female students = 32
40% of the students is female
40/100 x total = 32
Total students = 80
Since the total is 18 and the female is 32,
Total male is 48
Half of the students is either excellent or good
Since good is 30, Excellent will be 10, the values has to be filled up continuously to fill up the remaining values.
A piece of tin is in the form of a rectangle having length 64 cm and width 54 cm. This is used to construct a closed cube. The side of the cube is
Since, the same tin is used to make the cube, therefore,
The area of the rectangle = The area of the cube
[(length of rectangle) x (breadth of rectangle) = (6 x side2]
(64 x 54) = 6 x side2
side2 = 64 x 9
side = 8 x 3 = 24
