LIVE CHAT with ex- Convenor and Dean MISB Bocconi

26th December 2014 at 8.30pm with  Dr. Himanshu Rai, CAT 2010 Convenor and Dean MISB Bocconi.

-Faculty from SDA Bocconi, Italy

-Dual Campus Mumbai and Milan

-2014 Avg. CTC 10 Lakh p.a

- Merit Based Tuition Fee Waiver

Lets fix the Chairman.
Let the VC sit to the right of him. Now the 8 directors can be arranged in 8! ways.

Similarly, if the VC sits to his left, there are 8! ways for the directors.

So total=2*8!

how they sat in a round table

How many numbers of the following set are divisible by 101
S = {2007, 20072007, 200720072007, 2007200720072007, ....}

10^3 mod 101 = 1

we can write 2007 as 2*10^3+7 mod 101 = 9

we need to write 101 times 2007 for make it divisible by 101

so , number should in form of 101k*2007 = infinite numbers

S = {2007, 20072007, 200720072007, 2007200720072007, ....}

Divisibility test for 101: Form pairs two at a time from the right and add '+' and '-' signs alternately.

2007: 07-20=-13
20072007:07-20+07-20=-26
20072007...........2007(n times)=(07-20)+(07-20).........n times=-13n

since 13 and 101 are coprimes, -13n will be divisible by 101 for n=101k

so infinite nos.

sol:

fix thses three buddies chairman ,vice chairman and a director take them as 1 person then total remains 10-3+1=8
now these can arrange around a circular table in 7! ways and director and vice chairman can too change their position in 2 ways so total ways
2*7!

The underlined director can be chosen in 8 ways.
So the answer wd become 2*7!*8=2*8!

Am I right????

Getting 600 numbers !!! So , none of these

Last 2 digits can be : 12 , 16 , 24 , 32 , 36 , 52 , 56 , 64 , 72 , 76

Remaining 3-digits can be arranged in P(5,3) = 60 ways

Total numbers = 60*10 = 600

i think d ans 840!!!
1080-240=840

In how many ways can eight directors, the vice chairman and chairman of a firm be seated at a round table, if the chairman has to sit between the vice chairman and a director?

sol:

fix thses three buddies chairman ,vice chairman and a director take them as 1 person then total remains 10-3+1=8

now these can arrange around a circular table in 7! ways and director and vice chairman can too change their position in 2 ways so total ways

2*7!

Find the number of five-digit multiples of 4, which can be formed using the digits from 1 to 7, using the digits at most once:
(1) 720 (2) 84 (3) 840 (4) 90 (5) none of these

Getting 600 numbers !!! So , none of these

Last 2 digits can be : 12 , 16 , 24 , 32 , 36 , 52 , 56 , 64 , 72 , 76

Remaining 3-digits can be arranged in P(5,3) = 60 ways

Total numbers = 60*10 = 600

_ _ _ 12

_ _ _ 16

_ _ _ 24

_ _ _ 28

_ _ _ 32

_ _ _ 36

all blank spaces in C(5,3)*3!=60 ways

60*6=360

Sambit bhai 28 toh out of range chala gaya !! Digits 1 to 7 use karni hai !!

no 15 gallon
post ur method:cheers:\

60 miles/hr -----> 20 miles per gallon
75 miles/hr -----> 70% of 20 = 14 miles per gallon.
So at this speed 210 miles will take = 210/14 = 15 gallons
