287 x 287 + 269 x 269 - 2 x 287 x 269 = ?

A534

B446

C354

D324

ENone of these

Explanation:

Given Exp. = a2 + b2 - 2ab, where a = 287 and b = 269
= (a - b)2 = (287 - 269)2
= (182)
= 324

The difference between a two-digit number and the number obtained by interchanging the positions of its digits is 36. What is the difference between the two digits of that number?

A4

B3

C6

D9

Explanation:

Let the ten's digit be x and unit's digit be y.
Then, (10x + y) - (10y + x) = 36
=> 9(x - y) = 36

=> x - y = 4.

A50

B53

C58

D214

Explanation:

58 is the answer because 58/4=2, 58/6=4 and 58/5=3.the least number is 58.

A number, when divided by 296, gives 75 as the remainder. If the same number is divided by 37 then the remainder will be

A1

B2

C19

D31

Explanation:

If the first divisor is a multiple of second divisor, the remainder obtained by dividing the same number by second divisor = remainder obtained by dividing the first remainder by the second divisor.
Here, 296/37 = 8
So required remainder = Remainder obtained by dividing 75 by 37 = 1

The sum and product of two numbers are 12 and 35 respectively. The sum of their reciprocals will be

A1/3

B1/5

C12/35

D35/15

Explanation:

x+y = 12............(1)
xy = 35 ............(2)

so (x+y)/xy = 1/y+1/x = 12/35

The sum of all the digits of the numbers from 1 to 100 is:

A5050

B903

C901

D900

Explanation:

Sum of unit digits of numbers from 1 to 99.
= 10 (1 + 2 + 3 + ..... + 9)
= 10*(9*l0/2)=450
= [1+2+3+....+n=n(n+l)/2]

Sum of ten's digits of numbers from 1 to 99
= 10 (1 + 2 + 3 + ..... 9) = 450
Sum of digits of 100 = 1
Required sum = 450 + 450 + 1 = 901
