its a concept of coomon terms in AP... c first take 2 series 7p+4 and 11q+6.. so their common term 39 so new series is 77n+39... similarily now include 13r+3.. so common term 809 so 1001n+ 809..:)

ganapathy.1989
Ganpath @ganapathy.1989 85

how were u able to find common term between 77n+39 and 13r+3 so quickly - did u apply any LCM or something?

rafaelnadal
Indranil Roy @rafaelnadal 1.1 k

6

7p+4 = 11q+6 = 13r+3

first two give 77k+39

and 77k+39 and 13r+3 give 1001x+809, so when x = 2, it becomes 2811

and mod(2811/17)= 6

ya... getting 1/20...! but as per concept we get maximum value of multiplication when all terms are equal i.e 1/4..so maximum value possible is 1/16. But we gets 1/20 in convincing way.. Really Puzzled...!

kanika sharma @kanika10sharma 576

not max ...min value is 1/16...if 1/16 was max..then 1/20 wud be rite as 1/20<1/16

a.Those stories, collected in a book also titled Hieroglyph, will be released on 9 September.  

b.Renowned writers such as Bruce Sterling were tasked with working with scientists to imagine optimistic, technically-grounded science fiction stories depicting futures achievable within the next 50 years.  

c."I do feel more positive about our future," he says. Dystopianism may be having a pop-culture moment, but people are ready for something new  

d.That conversation spawned a new endeavour called Project Hieroglyph, which seeks to bring science fiction writers and scientists together to learn from, and influence, each other - and in turn, the future.

Dhaakad Chhora @DhaakadChhora 11

Though now a call depends on your profile too, but still aim for around 90%ile to be on the safer side. Some candidates even convert their calls at 70%ile, but then don't be lured by that minimum%ile.

Exactly!! The higher the percentile, better are ur chances.
