• Q26) A teacher asks one of her students to divide a 30-digit number by 11. The number consists of six consecutive 1’s, then six consecutive 2’s, and likewise six 3’s, six 4’s and six 7’s in that order from left to right. The student inserts a three-digit number between the last 4 and the first 7 by mistake and finds the resulting number to be divisible by 11. Find the number of possible values of the three-digit number

• Q27) In how many ways can you climb up 8 steps if the minimum and maximum steps you can take at a time are 1 and 6 respectively?

• 1step = 1 way =2^0
2 step = (1,1) , (2,0) = 2^1 way
3 step = (1,1,1) , (2,1) ,(1,2) ,(3)=2^2=4 way
4 step = 2^3= 8 way
5 step = 2^4 = 16 way
6 step = 2^5 = 32 way
now step 7th step will be sum of previous 6 steps= 63
8th step = sum of previous 6 step = 125

• Q28) How many arrangements can be made in a round table of 8 chairs if 2 of them like to sit opposite to each other ?

• Q29) In a group of four boys, each of them has a certain number of Re. 1 coins with him. Every boy has an amount that is an integral multiple of the amount possessed by every other boy who has an amount less than him. If the total amount with the four boys put together is Rs. 70, and no two boys have the same amount, what is the minimum possible amount (in Rs.) with the boy who has the maximum number of Rs. 1 coins with him?

• let A,B,C,D
let A got a rs
B got a * b rupees
C got a * b * c rupees
D got a * b * c * d rupees
a(1+b+bc+bcd)=70
a * (1+b+bc+bcd) = 2 * 35
this will be minimum when all values are as close as possible
1+b+bc+bcd=35
b(1+c+cd)=34
so b=2
1+c+cd=17
so c(1+d)=16
so c=4 and d=3
so a=2,b=2,c=4,d=3
so 2,4,16,48 these are values

• Q30) A teacher asks one of her students to divide a 30-digit number by 11. The number consists of six consecutive 1’s, then six consecutive 2’s, and likewise six 3’s, six 4’s and six 7’s in that order from left to right. The student inserts a three-digit number between the last 4 and the first 7 by mistake and finds the resulting number to be divisible by 11. Find the number of possible values of the three-digit number.
