Quant Boosters  Swetabh Kumar  Set 2

Q26) A and B started running from the same point and in opposite directions around a circular track of radius 24.5 m. A’s speed was twice that of B’s speed. They met each other after 14 seconds. What was A’s speed?

A=2x, B=x
length= 2pi * r = 49pi = 154 m.
so given, 154/3x = 14 x=11/3 so 2x=22/3

Q27) Find the approximate sum of the series 11/4, 31/8, 79/16 up to 10 terms?

(2+11/4) + (3+11/8) + (4+11/16)...10 terms
(2+3+4....11) + (1+1+1...10 times)  (1/4+1/8+1/16...10 terms of GP)
= 65 + 10  1/2{1(1/2)^10} = 75 1/2 {1023/1024} = 74.5 approx


1 comes 3 times (from rt 1 to rt 3)
2 comes 5 times (from rt 4 to rt 8 )
3 comes 7 times (from rt 9 to rt 15) and so on.
so ever number N comes 2n+1 times. so N(2N+1)
till 43. After that the remaining 69 numbers with 44.1 * 3 + 2 * 5 + 3 * 7..... 43 * 87 + 44 * 69
so 2n^2 + n sigma till 43 + 44*69
2 * 43 * 44 * 87/6 + 43 * 22 + 44 * 69 = 58850

Q29) Given N = 35 x 36 x 37 .......... x 67, what is the remainder left when N is divided by 289?

Q30) Find the number of integer solutions for x + 2y + z = 4

35 * 36 * ...67 , cancel one 17 with 51.
so remaining: (35 * 36....50) * 3 * (52 * 53....67) mod 17
(16!) * 16! * 3 mod 17 = 1 * 1 * 3 = 3 mod 17 (using Wilson)
since we cancelled 17, so 17 * 3= 51.

x+2y+z=4
for y=0, x+z=4 so 4n=4 * 4=16 cases
for y=1, y=+1 and x+z=2 so 2 * 4 * 2=16 cases
for y=2 y=+2 x+z=0 so 2 * 1 = 2 cases
so 16+16+2 = 34 integer solutions.
