SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 1

A three-digit number 4a3 is added to an other three-digit number 984 to give the four digit number 13b7 which is divisible by 11. Then the value of (a + b) is:       (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 1


∵ 13b7 is exactly divisible by 11.
∴ b = 9 ∴ a = 1
∴ a + b = 9 + 1 = 10

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 2

The least number which when divided by 35, 45, 55 leaves the remainder 18, 28, 38 respectively is       (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 2

35 – 18 = 17
45 – 28 = 17
55 – 38 = 17
i.e., difference between the divisor and correseponding remainder is same.
LCM of 35, 45 and 55 = 3465
∴ Required number
= 3465 – 17 = 3448

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 3

The number nearest to 75070 which is divisible by 65, is       (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 3


∴ Required number
= 75070 + (65 – 60) = 75075

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 4

There are 4 terms in an A.P. such that the sum of two means is 110 and product of their extremes is 2125. The 3rd term is           (SSC Sub. Ins. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 4

Let the 4 terms in A.P are a – 3d, a – d, a + d, a + 3d
According to question
a – d + a + d = 110 ... (1)
(a – 3d) (a + 3d) = 2125 ... (2)
From equation (1)
a – d + a + d = 110
2a = 110 ⇒ a = 55
From equation (2)
(a – 3d) (a + 3d) = 2125
⇒ a2 – 9d2 = 2125
⇒ (55)2 – 9d2 = 2125
⇒ 3025 – 9d2 = 2125
⇒ 900 = 9d2 ⇒ d2 = 100 ⇒ d = 10
∴ a = 55, d = + 10
series would be :
25, 45, 65, 85
IIIrd term would be 65.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 5

The greatest number that can divide 140, 176, 264 leaving remainders of 4, 6, and 9 respectively is       (SSC Sub. Ins. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 5

Required number = H.C.F of (140 – 4), (176 – 6) and (264 – 9) = H.C.F. of 136, 170 and 255.

∴ Required number = 17
"Alternate Method:
Here divisible terms are 140 – 4 = 136, 176 – 6 = 170
and 264 – 9 = 255
Now, difference between these numbers
170 – 136 = 34
225 – 170 = 85
H.C.F of difference = 17
Hence required number = 17."

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 6

Four runners started running simultaneously from a point on a circular track. They took 200 seconds, 300 seconds, 360 seconds and 450 seconds to complete one round. After how much time they meet at the starting point for the first time?       (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 6

Required time = LCM of 200, 300, 360 and 450 seconds = 1800 seconds.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 7

When 'n' is divisible by 5 the remainder is 2. What is the remainder when n2 is divided by 5?       (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 7

Required remainder = Remainder obtained by dividing 22 by 5.
Remainder = 4

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 8

L.C.M. of two numbers is 120 and their H.C.F. is 10. Which of the following can be the sum of those two numbers?         (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 8

Let the numbers be 10x and 10y where x and y are prime to each other.
∴ LCM = 10 xy
⇒ 10xy = 120 ⇒ xy = 12
Posssible pairs = (3, 4) or (1, 12)
∴ Sum of the numbers = 30 + 40 = 70
"Alternate Method:
If two different numbers are in form of ax and bx
H.C.F of these numbers is x and L.C.M of these numbers is abx
Now a and b are co-prime terms in L.C.M.
10 × a × b = 120
a × b = 12 → 1 × 12
2 × 6 this is not a pair of co prime terms.
3 × 4"

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 9

Which one of the following will completely divide 571 + 572 + 573?      (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 9

571 + 572 + 573
= 571 (1 + 5 + 52) = 570 × 5 × 31
= 571 × 155 which is exactly divisible by 155.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 10

If a * b = ab, then the value of 5 * 3 is        (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 10

a * b = ab
∴ 5 * 3 = 53 = 5 × 5 × 5 = 125

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 11

The unit digit in the sum of (124)372 + (124)373 is       (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 11

41 = 4; 42 = 16; 43 = 64; 44 = 256; 45 = 1024
Remainder on dividing 372 by 4 = 0
Remainder on dividing 373 by 4 = 1
∴ Required unit digit
= Unit’s digit of the sum = 6 + 4 = 0

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 12

If 17200 is divided by 18, the remainder is        (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 12

Remainder when (x – 1)n is divided by x is (–1)n
∴ (17)200 = (18 – 1)200
∴ Remainder = (–1)200 = 1
"Alternate Method:
an – bn is completely divisible by a + b. If n is an even number in the case of 17200 ÷ 18 (17200 - 1200) is completely divisible by 17 + 1 = 18
Here, 1 is remainder.
Or in other words if an is divided by a + 1 and n is even number then it always left 1 as remainder."

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 13

The least number, which is to be added to the greatest number of 4 digits so that the sum may be divisible by 345, is        (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 13

The largest 4-digit number = 9999

∴ Required number = 345 – 339 = 6

The traffic lights at three different road crossings change after 24 seconds, 36 seconds and 54 seconds respectively. If they all change simultaneously at 10 : 15 :00 AM, then at what time will they again change simultaneously?        (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 14

LCM of 24, 36 and 54 seconds
= 216 seconds = 3 minutes 36 seconds
∴ Required time = 10 : 15 : 00 + 3 minutes 36 seconds = 10 : 18 : 36 a.m.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 15

A number when divided by 49 leaves 32 as remainder. This number when divided by 7 will have the remainder as         (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2011)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 15

Here, the first divisor i.e. 49 is multiple of second divisor i.e. 7.
∴ Required remainder = Remainder obtained on dividing 32 by 7 = 4

31 = 3; 32 = 9; 33 = 27; 35 = 81; 35 = 243
i.e. unit’s digit is repeated after index 4.
Remainder after dividing 21 by 4 = 1
∴ Unit’s digit in the expansion of (3)21 = 3
∴ Remainder after dividing by 5 = 3

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 20

How many perfect squares lie between 120 and 300 ?       (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2010)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 20

112 = 121, 122 = 144, 132 = 169, 142 = 196
152 = 225, 162 = 256, 172 = 289
Square no above 120 = 121 of 11
Square no below 300 = 289 of 17
Total 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, i.e. 7 no.
"Alternate Method:
First square number above 120 is 121
112 > 120 and 182 > 300
Hence, required number of squares between 120 to 300
= 18 – 11 = 7"

If 'n' be any natural number, then by which largest number (n3 – n) is always divisible?        (SSC CGL 2nd Sit. 2010)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Number System and HCF & LCM- 3 - Question 21

n3 – n = (n2 – 1)
⇒ n (n +1) (n – 1)
For n = 2, n3 – n = 6
23 – 2 = 6
i.e. n3 – n is always divisible by 6.
