. My only point being, quizzes like these often tend to inspire curiosity as to how far can they “really” know us- something that really brings out the cat in me- and more often they tend to use these safe and all-inclusive categories that include and exclude you like some magic trick. It is after all a trick since the very generality means that it necessarily cannot be ruled out for your particular case; at the same time this also means that it fails to capture anything beyond the realm of the universal and general categories. Consequently, it defeats the very purpose it claimed- of stating the real you-

A number N2, where N is a natural number, is such that exactly three of its factors are less than N. What is the number of factors of N3?
A. 8

B. 9

C. 10

D. 11

  • 7Comments
  • 10. 1d.
  • n=8. 1d.
Goldberg TheRock @GoldbergWWE 26

(Assuming N2 is N^2)

N will be of the form a^3 where a is a prime number

So, N^2 will be a^6 with 1,a,a^2 being less than N

So. N^3 will be a^9 which will have 10 factors.

(N cant be a^2.b^2 or a.b bcz the no of factors of N^2 less than N wud be more than 3.

For similar reasons N cant be a^2)

A notification about the admission procedure will be released on the institute website by the 2nd week of November. You will have to fill up an online application form. You must be a part of the entire admission process to be eligible for admission.

Number of zeroes in a base N depends on the limiting prime contained in N. 

In decimal system ie base 10=2*5, we look for the number of 5's in it.

Zeroes in 100! => [100/5]+[100/5^2] = 20+4=24

In base 7 = 1*7, so number of 7

=> [100/7]+[100/7^2]=14+2=16

In base 33=3*11, so number of 11

=> [100/11]= 9

But in case if 12=2^2*3 or 24=2^3*3, 
Limiting primes are 2^2 and 2^3 respectively.

So number of zeroes in 100! In base 12=2^2*3

=> [100/2]+[100/2^2]+[100/ 2^3]+[100/2^4]+[100/2^5]+[100/ 2^6]= 97

So number of 2^2 => [97/2]= 48

Hi guys!! 10th-88%, 12th-94.8%, and 62% in MBBS. No work experience. What should be my percentile to get a call from ABCIKL? My scores are around 70 in the AIMCAT's. Do I have any chance so that I can get a call from any of the old IIM's or should I be looking at 2015? Last 15 days, it has totally taken a mental toll upon me with the low mock CAT scores. Thank you.  Please help.

I needed some clarification regarding the score evaluation. 

I am applying through GMAT but my exam date is on 1st Dec,2014. SP JAIN accepts scores only till Dec 2014.  But since this would be my first GMAT attempt and I am not sure what scores I would get my query is suppose I do not get 650 on my first try but I send my scores to SP Jain and in my next attempts I clear the cutoffs by the time of score based interviews would I still be considered or scores only till Dec will be termed final?
