    If you know basic base rule think of base 3
    If 3^m + 3^n + 3^p = 3^q, then
    m = n = p is the only possibility
    3^(2x)+3^(3y)+(3^5z)=3^7z
    2x=3y=5z
    3^(2x+1)=3^7z
    so 2x=7z-1
    2x=3y=5z=7z-1=k
    so x=k/2 , y=k/3 , z=k/5 , z=(k+1)/7
    k=90
    so x+y+z+w=106

    Q5) In a group of people, there are 13 who like apples, 9 who like blueberries, 15 who like cantaloupe,and 6 who like dates. (A person can like more than 1 kind of fruit.)

Find the minimum possible number of people in the group.

    Q8) When a certain number 'x' is multiplied by 18 the product 'y' has all of its digits as 4. What is the minimum number of digits 'x' can have ?

    OA=8 , 18 = 2 * 9
    for a number consisting of 4s to be divisible by 9
    the 444.... has to have 9 4s
    so 444444444 / 18 = 24691358= 8 digits

    Q11) a1, a2, ...., a40 are 40 natural numbers such that 0 < a1 < a2 < ... < a40 < 100, then find the difference between the maximum and minimum possible sum of all the differences di, where di = a(i + 1) - a(i)

    Q12) A function f(k) is defined on natural numbers as follows
    f(k) = 2k if k is odd
    = k/2 if k is even.
    if f(f(f(k))) = 22 then find the sum of all possible values of k.

    f(f(f(k))=22
    f((f(k))=11 or 44 (( 11 odd so we will get 22 or 44 even so we will get 44/2=22
    case= f(f(k)=11
    then f(k)=22 (K if even then k/2 ,)
    when f(k)=22
    then k=44 or 11
    When f(f(k)=44
    then f(k)=88 or 22
    when f(k)=22 then k=44 or 11
    f(k)=88 then k=44 or 176
    so k=11,44,176
    so sum 11+44+176=231
