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


  • Director, Genius Tutorials, Karnal ( Haryana ) & Delhi | MSc (Mathematics)


    The 5-digit 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 = 70

    Now, 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 cases

    Probability = 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 answer

    Method 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

    Q16) 2n has 28 factors 3n has 30 factors How many factors will 6n have ?


  • Director, Genius Tutorials, Karnal ( Haryana ) & Delhi | MSc (Mathematics)


    N = 2^a × 3^b
    Factors of 2N = ( a + 2) ( b + 1)=28
    Factors of 3N = ( a + 1 )( b + 2 )=30
    So a = 5 and b = 3
    So N = 2^5 × 3^3
    Now Factors of 6N ( 2^6 × 3^4 )
    will be 7 × 5 = 35
