For 1st meeting they need to travel 1400 km and for rest 21 round they will cover 2800 km
So total 2800 x 21 + 1400= 60200km
A will travel 5/7 x 60200= 43000 km
For 42000 km he needs 30 rounds
In the last round he will cover 1000km from P
So he is at 14001000= 400km from Q

Q9) Sum of digits of a 5digit number is 41.The probability that such a number is divisible by 11 is k/ 35 where k =

The 5digit combination whose sum = 41 are
● 99995 : No. of arrangements = 5
● 99986 : No. of arrangements = 20
● 99977 : No. of arrangements = 10
● 99887 : No. of arrangements = 30
● 98888 : No. of arrangements = 5
Total = 70Now, for a number (abcde) to be divisible by 11, we should have (a + c + e) – (b + d) = 11
and (a + c + e) + (b + d) = 41
So, a + c + e = 26, b + d = 15
Thus (a, c, e) = (9, 9, 8 ) and (b, d) = (7, 8 ) or (6, 9)
Hence total 12 casesProbability = 12/70 = 6/35
k = 6

Fibonacci with a gap of 1 : 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 13, 19, 28
Answer : 28
Method 2 :
1 step in 1 way
2 steps in 1 way
3 steps in 2 ways
4 steps in 3 ways
5 steps in 4 ways
6 steps in 6 ways
7 steps in 9 ways
8 steps in 13 ways
9 steps in 19 ways
10 steps in 28 ways
So 28 should be the answerMethod 3 :
x + 3y = 10
(1 , 3 ) > 4
(4 , 2 ) > 6!/4!2! = 15
(7 , 1) > 8!/7! = 8
(10 , 0) > 1
TOTAL = 15 + 4 + 8 + 1 = 28
