    m = 1/n
    mn = 1
    m^3 + n^3 +3mn [ m+n ] = (m+n)^3
    65/8 + 3 x = x^3

    Q16) The median of five positive integers is 7. If the only mode is greater than the median and the mean is greater than 9, what is the lowest possible value of the mode of these 5 integers?


  • Being MBAtious!


    a < b < c < d < e
    c = 7
    d and e are same
    a + b + c + d + e > 45
    5 = a
    b = 6
    c = 7
    18 + 2d > 45
    2d > 27
    d > 13.5
    d = 14
    e = 14
    Mode =14

    Q17) The number of factors of the number N = 4^6 + 6^8 is
    a. 18
    b. 36
    c. 54
    d. 72


  • Being MBAtious!


    2^12 + 2^8 * 3^8
    2^8 [ 16 + 3^8 ]
    2^8 [ 16 + 81 * 81 ]
    2^8 [ 16 + 6561 ]
    2^8 [6577]
    9 * 2 = 18 factors

    Q18) When a natural number, N is divided by D, the remainder is 35. When 50N is divided by D, the remainder is 11. Find D
    a. 1739
    b. 43
    c. 47
    d. Cannot be determined


  • Being MBAtious!


    n=ad +35
    50n=bd +11
    50n=50ad+1750
    50n=bd+11
    50ad+1750 = bd +11
    1739= (b-50a)d
    d can be 1739 or 47

    Q19) In a row at a bus stop, A is 9th from the right and B is 7th from the left. They both interchange their positions. If there are 20 people in the row, what will be the new position of B from the left'?
    (1) 11th
    (2) 12th
    (3) 13th
    (4) 10th

    1,2,3,4,5,6,B,8,9,10,11,A,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20
    So, 12'th from left

    Q20) Find the sum of all positive two-digit integers that are divisible by each of their digits


  • Being MBAtious!


    {11,22...99}
    10a+b mod a=0 -> b mod a=0
    10a+b mod b=0 ->10a mod b=0
    when a=b , the above 2 conditions will be satisfied -> {11,22...99}
    also : {12,15,24,36,48 } will satisfy the above conditions
    sum =630

    Q21) If a + b + c + d + e = 8 & a^2 + b^2 + c^2 + d^2 + e^2 = 16, where a,b,c,d& e are real numbers then
    maximum (a,b,c,d,e) = ?
    a. 4
    b. 2
    c. 16/5
    d. 6/5
    e. None of these


  • Being MBAtious!


    Application of cauchy-schwarz inequality
    a+b+c+d = 8-e
    a^2+b^2+c^2+d^2 = 16-e^2
    now
    (a^2+b^2+c^2+d^2)(1+1+1+1) >= (a+b+c+d)^2
    or 4*(16-e^2) >= (8-e)^2
    or 64-4e^2 >= 64+e^2-16e
    or 5e^2 < = 16e
    or e(5e-16) < = 0
    so 0 < = e < = 16/5

    Q22) Let f(x) be a function such that f(x).f(y) - f(xy) = 3(x+y+2). Then f(4)=?
    (1) can not be determined
    (2) 7
    (3) -8
    (4) either 7 or -8
    (5) none of these


  • Being MBAtious!


    f(0)^2 - f(0) =6
    f(0) =3 or -2
    :
    f(0) f(2) - f(0) = 3 (0+2+2)
    f(0) [ f(2) -1 ] = 12
    if f(0) = 3 , f(2) =5
    if f(0) =-2 , f(2) =-5
    :
    f(2)^2 - f(4)= 18
    25 -18 = f(4) = 7 ( -(5)^2 = 5^2 = 25 )
    Hence only 7

    Q23) Number of non negative solutions for x + y = x^2 - xy + y^2


  • Being MBAtious!


    x^3 + y^3 = (x + y)(x^2 -xy + y^2)
    => x^3 + y^3 = (x + y)^2
    Squares => Sum of cubes
    0 => (0,0) ; (-x,x) for all x integers
    1 => (0,1) ; (1,0)
    4 => None
    9 => (1,2) ; (2,1)
    16 => (2,2)
    But (-x,x) do not satisfy the original equation.
    Total real solutions : Infinite
    Total integral solutions : 6
    Total non negative solutions : 6
    Total positive integral solutions : 3

    Q24) There are coins of three denominations 1 rupee, 2 rupees and 5 rupees, in a bag. The number of coins of Re1 is to the number of coins of Re 2 is 1:4 and the number of coins of Rs.2 is to the number of coins of Rs 5 is 7:2. If it is known that the total number of coins in the bag is between 200 and 250, then the total amount of money in the bag must be ?


  • Being MBAtious!


    number of Re 1 coins : x
    number of Rs 2 coins : y
    number of Rs 5 coins : z
    x:y = 1:4
    or
    x:y = 7:28
    y:z = 28:8
    200 < x + y + z < 250
    200 [35, 140, 40]
    money = 35 +280 + 200 =515

    Q25) The distance between A and B is 19 km. A cyclist starts from A at a constant speed towards B. A car leaves from A 15 min later in the same direction. In 10 min it catches up with the cyclist and continues towards B; after reaching B, it turns around and in 50 min after leaving, car encounters the cyclist the second time.
    a) The speed of the car is?
    b) The speed of the cyclist is?
