A retailer keeps Reebok shoes, which are listed at a mark up of 10% above their factory price. However on Monday he realized the shortage of demand and hence decreased the list price by 10%. On the very next day, that is, Tuesday he realized that he is making a loss so he increased yhe list price by 10% again. He continues this trend indefinitely. On which day will he suffer a loss of more than 10% per shoe for the first time?

The sum of the lengths of the hypotenuse and one of the perpendicular sides of a right angled triangle is L. When the area of this triangle is maximum, the angle between the two sides is

Please provide the approach as well

1) 45 degrees

2) 22.5 degrees

3) 60 degrees

4) None of these Skip

—

let the three sides of the triangle be P,B and H.

p^2+B^2=H^2........eq1

A/Q P+H=L

so, H=L-P

substitute H in eq1

p=(L^2-B^2)/2L

area= 1/2*B*P

for Area to be max derivative will be 0.

which gives L^2=3*(B^2)

so, B = L/sqrt(3)

p=L/3

sin X=1/2

X=30 deg

hence ANS 4 None of these

Two Rabbits A and B are running a race in which they have to go upto 50 m mark and then come back to starting point. A runs in a sequence of 3 steps in which distance traveled in first jump is twice that of other two and B runs in a sequence of 3 jumps where first jump is 1.5 time the distance travelled in second jump and distance traveled in 2nd jump is twice the distance traveled in 3rd jump. Distance traveled by A in 2 jumps and by B in 3 jumps is equal to 6m. Who will win the race.

Please explain the approach!

the average speed of a train in the onward journey is 25% more than that in the return journey. The train halts for one hour on reaching the destination. The total time taken for the complete to and fro journey is 17 hours, covering a distance of 800km.speed of the train in onward journey is:

A 45kmph

B 47.5kmph

C 52kmph

D 56.25kmph

45kmph

Hi,

Could anyone share some insight on the approach to solve this problem

Q> Which of the following is smallest?

a) 5^(1/2) b)6^(1/3) c)8^(1/4) d)12^(1/5)

Q> Which of the following is smallest?

a) 5^(1/2) b)6^(1/3) c)8^(1/4) d)12^(1/5)

- 12^1/5. 04 Mar.
- LCM(2,3,4,5)= 60 5^(1/2)= (5^30)^(1/60) 6^(1/3)= (.... 28 Aug '13.

LCM(2,3,4,5)= 60

5^(1/2)= (5^30)^(1/60)

6^(1/3)= (6^20)^(1/60)

8^(1/4)= (8^15)^(1/60)

12^(1/5)=(12^12)^(1/60)

Now since the power over all the numbers is (1/60), the ans will be smallest of all the numbers, i.e (12^12) in this case.
