411. A circle circumscribes three unit circles that touch each other. What is the area of the larger circle? Note that p is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle (3.14159265).

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

By joining centers of 3 unit circles we will get an equilateral triangle of length 2 unit. We have to find the length of the orange line.

And center of the equilateral triangle will be the center of the big circle.

So radius of the big circle will be = (1 + Circum radius of the equilateral triagle)

Formula for Circul radius of the equilateral triangle = 23*(3?2a) here 3?2a is the height of the triangle. a is the side of the triangle

Circum radius of equilateral triangle = 23*3?2*2=23?

Area of big circle will be =?r2=3.14*(1+23?)2 = 3.14*(1+43?+43) =3.14*(1+43?+43) = 3.14*(73+43?)

=3.14*(7+43?3)

412. The length, breadth and height of a room are in the ratio 3:2:1. If the breadth and height are halved, while the length is doubled. Then the total area of the 4 walls of the room will be decreased by

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Given l:b:h=3:2:1

let h=10, b = 20, and l = 30 area = 2(l+b)h

area= 2*(3x+2x)*x = 2(30+20)10=1000

Now after those adjustments in the measurements, l=60, b=10, h=5

area= 2(l+b)h = 2(60+10)5=700

Percentage decrease= 1000?7001000 * 1000=30%

414. Four people each roll a four die once. Find the probability that at least two people will roll the same number?

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

The number of ways of rolling a dice where no two numbers probability that no one rolls the same number = 6 * 5 * 4 * 3

Now total possibilities of rolling a dice = 64

The probability that a no one gets the same number = 6*5*4*364 = 518

So, the probability that at least two people gets same number = (1?518) = 1318

415. The fourteen digits of a credit card are to be written in the boxes shown above. If the sum of every three consecutive digits is 18, then the value of x is:

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Let us assume right most two squares are a , b

Then Sum of all the squares = 18 x 4 + a + b ------ (1)

Also Sum of the squares before 7 = 18

Sum of the squares between 7, x = 18 and

sum of the squares between x , 8 = 18

So Sum of the 14 squares = (18 + 7 + 18 + x + 18 + 8 + a + b) ------- (2)

By Solving equation 1 and 2

x = 3

419. X = 101102103104105106107......146147148149150 (From numbers 101-150). Find out the remainder when this number is divided by 9.

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

The divisibility rule for 9 is sum of the digits is to be divisible by 9. So

We calculate separately, sum of the digits in hundreds place, tenths place, and units place.

Sum of the digits in hundreds place: 1 * 50 = 50

Sum of the digits in tenths place : 0 * 9 + 1 * 10 + 2 * 10 + 3 * 10 + 4 * 10 + 5 * 1 = 105

Sum of the digits in units place : (1 + 2 + 3 + ...+ 9) * 5 = 225

So total = 380

So remainder = 380 / 9 = 2

420. A number is 101102103104...150. As 101 102 103 103.... 150. What is reminder when divided by 3?

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

Divisibility rule for 3 also same as 9.

so from the above discussion sum of the digits = 380

and remainder = 380/3 = 2
