@arnabsuav
70 has got 7,2,5 as factors.
hence the limiting factor here is no. of 7s,which is 28+4=32
hence the ans--32

ye..ans is 32..

Solve these............

Okay.. These are one of the more trickier problems in Quants...
Problem #1
A person walking takes 26 steps to come down on a escalator and it takes 30 seconds for him for walking. The same person while running takes 18 second and 34 steps. How many steps are there ??

Problem #2
An escalator is descending at constant speed. A walks down and
takes 50 steps to reach the bottom. B runs down and takes 90 steps
in the same time as A takes 10 steps. How many steps are visible
when the escalator is not operating?

Problem #3
There is a escalator and 2 persons move down it. A takes 50 steps and B takes 75 steps while the escalator is moving down. Given that the time taken by A to take 1 step is equal to time taken by B to take 3 steps, find the no. of steps in the escalator while it is staionary.

Happy solving!
