=====================

Q) A credit card number has 6 digits (between 1 to 9). The first two digits are 12 in that order, the third digit is bigger than 6, the forth is divisible by 3 and the fifth digit is 3 times the sixth. How many different credit card numbers exist?

digits 1 2 3 4 5 & 6
numbers 1 2 ( 7,8,9) (3,6,9) (31,62,93)

Ans would be 3*3*3= 27.

Correct me if i am wrong

ans= 27
3rd digit could be 7,8 and 9
4th could be only 3,6,9
and 5 could be only 3, 6 and 9
and 6th digit be fixed according to 5th digit
so 3x3x3= 27

my take27

third digit can take 3 values
4th digit can take 3,6,9 = 3 values
5th digit = 3 times 6th. 6th can take only 1,2,3 and corresponding three values for 5th digit

A truck having ten tyres travels from P to Q and then back to P. If there are 2 additional spare tyres and the distance between P and Q is 9000 kilometres (km), then the maximum distance travelled (in km) by any tyre is at least?
(1) 12000 (2) 18000 (3) 9000 (4) 16000 (5) 15000

sol:

-----------------------------truck (with 10 tyres)

so clearly 1st tyre will travel 9000km and so by the 2nd tyre so total distance
travelled by individual tyre
=9000*10(forward)+9000*10(backward)
=18000*10
=180000km

now when there are twelve tyres=(10*18000)/12=15000
catch here is this that adding two tyre will not increase the truck length

A 250 m long train is approaching an unmanned railway crossing. The train is
running at a uniform speed of 75 km/h and is 3 km away from the crossing. At the same instant, a scooter is also approaching the crossing and is 1300 m away from it. The scooter is moving at a uniform speed of A. In which of the following ranges, A exists such that the scooter would pass the crossing by just escaping the collision?
(1) 24km/h to 28 km/h
(2) 29km/h to 33km/h
(3) 35km/h to 40km/h
(4) 41km/h to 45km/h
(5) 45 km/h to 50km/h

(3/75)=(1.3/A)
=>A=32.5~33

(b)

anujgupta21 Says
kindly solve this question...GUY!!!

bhai d ans is x-8
(kx-6)(x^2+2x-
=x^3-ax^2-bx+48
comparing a=4
putting a in d exp.
x^2-4x-32.
div by x-8

my take15000

total distance travelled ( sum of distance travelled by individual tyres) = 18000*10
we have used 12 tyres for this so per tyre it come sot 18000*10/12 = 15000

why did you take 25 instead of 50 on the LHS and RHS mei why did you multiply by 2/5

f(1000) = 999
f(1000)*f(f(1000))= 1
or, 999*f(999) = 1
or, f(999) = 1/999

as f(x) is continuous, there must be a real value 'c' in the range (999,1000)
for which,

f(c) = 891

now,
f(c) * f(f(c)) = 1
or, 891 * f(891) = 1
or, f(891) = 1/891

Please revert back, in case you have doubt/queries with the solution

I am also getting the same answer with the same method .I think ans would be 1/891

(4) 41km/h to 45km/h
(5) 45 km/h to 50km/h

Any speed> 32.5k/hr so ans is option 2

Because Work is inversly proportional to the Men and days.
I have taken 25 because additional men are not required till the 25th day and after that they require another men ( assume x) so total ( 105 + x) men.

But they have to finish the work in 50 days but only 25 days are left ( to complete 3/5th work ) so both side 25 days

I hope you are clear now .

Correct me if i am wrong
