    Q26) Find the maximum power of 12 in C(100,60)


  • Being MBAtious!


    100! / 60! * 40!
    12 = 2^2 * 3
    max power of 3 in 100! = 100/3+100/9+100/27+100/81 = 33+11+3+1 = 48
    max power of 3 in 60! = 60/3 + 60/9 + 60/27 = 20 + 6 + 2 = 28
    max power of 3 in 40! = 40/3 + 40/9 + 40/27 = 13 + 4 + 1 = 18
    3^48 / 3^28 * 3^18 = ( 3^2 )
    max power of 4 in 100! = 100/4 + 100/16 + 10/64 = 32
    max power of 4 in 60! = 60/4 + 60/16 = 18
    max power of 4! in 40! = 40/4 + 40/16 =12
    2^32 / 2^18 * 2^12 = 2^2
    so highest power is 1

    Q27) A jet is flying 2400 miles from Hawaii to San Francisco. In still air, it flies at 600 mph. There is 40 mph tailwind in the same direction. Exactly how many hours after takeoff would it becomes neutral for the plane to either go to San Francisco or to return to Hawaii in the case of an emergency?
    a. 1.25 hours
    b. 1.5 hours
    c. 1.75 hours
    d. 2 hours


  • Being MBAtious!


    d / 640 = 2400 - d / 560
    d = 1280 miles
    1280 = 640 * t
    t = 2 hours

    Q28) Two motorists set out at the same time to go from A to B, a distance of 100 miles. They both followed the same route and travelled at different, though uniform speeds of an integral number of miles per hour. The difference in their speeds was a prime number of miles per hour and after they had been driving for 2 hours, the distance of the slower car from A was 5 times that of the faster car from B. At what speed did the two motorists drive?


  • Being MBAtious!


    A-------100miles------------B
    Sp and Sq and | Sp - Sq | = prime number
    Sp * 2 = b
    Sq *2 = 500 - 5b
    10Sp + 2 Sq = 500
    (42, 40) satisfies

    Q29) If x/(2a+b) = y/(2b+c) = z/(2c+a) = 8 and x/2a = y/2b = z/2c = k where a + b + c not equal to 0, then k=?


  • Being MBAtious!


    x = 16a + 8b
    y = 16b + 8c
    z = 16c + 8a
    x/2a = 8 + 4b/a
    y/2b = 8 + 4c/b
    z/2c = 8 + 4a/c
    all are equal :
    b/a = c/b = a/c : numbers are equal
    8 + 4 = 12

    Q30) If there are "n" students in a circular arrangement facing toward the center. It is known that their roll numbers are Integral value from 1 to "n" and they are sitting in the order of increasingroll numbers. Then what would be value of "n" if Roll number 13 is just opposite to Roll Number 29 ?


  • Being MBAtious!


    14 to 28 : 15 students
    30, 31, 32 and 1 to 12 : 15 students
    so total 32
