ramakant28 Sayssiddhu u ll surely get the offer as there are two guys who have mailed at google group of GMP admits that they are leaving GMP for IIM-L and XL-BM.
if m and n are positive integers such that m/n = 13.24, which of the following could not be the remainder when m is divided by n?
A)12
b)16
c)30
d)48
e)120
Thanx monil for the explanation...
Nisha , alternatively we can say m/n = (13*25 + 6) / 25
= say (k+6)/25 where k is a multiple of 25 ...
Now when we multiple or divide by the same no, value remains unchanged
If the multiplying factor is 2 then
(2k + 12) / 50 where 2k is mult of 50 hence rem is 12 ...
So if the multiplying factor is n, then
(nk+6n) / 25n ...where nk is multiple of 25 n ...so 6n is remainder ...
Hence, to generalize any multiple of 6 can be a remainder !
Hope that helps !
Set R contains five numbers that have an average value of 55. If the median of the set is equal to the mean, and the largest number in the set is equal to 20 more than three times the smallest number, what is the largest possible range for the numbers in the set?
A)78
B)77 1/5
C)66 1/7
D)55 1/7
E)52
Ans B ...
for fractional values, decimal is of significance.
.24 = 24 /100 = 6/25 ....
Hence, all multiples of 6 can be remainder ..
Off late... have been making horrible mistakes in a hurry ! hope am correct this time
reachmonil SaysI'm no more than a nomadic visitor to this thread but this question has piqued my curiosity. I'm nearly sure about my answer but would love to double check before I compose a detailed solution - Is the answer 78?
