The difference between two no is 9 and the product of the two is 14.What is the square of their sum?

A120

B130

C137

D145

| | | Asked In TCS |

Explanation:

let's two number are x and y (x>y)

Difference (x-y) = 9  ------- (1)

product x*y = 14 ----------- (2)

from eq. 1

(x-y)^2 = x^2 y^2 - 2xy = 81

=> x^2 y^2 = 81  2*14 = 81 28 = 109------------(3)

some of their Square  (x y)^2 = x^2 y^2 2xy

put the value from eq. 3

(x y)^2 = 109 2*14 = 109 28 = 137  (Ans)

A sporting goods store ordered an equal number of white and yellow balls. The tennis ball company delivered 45 extra white balls, making the ratio of white balls to yellow balls 1/5 : 1/6. How many white tennis balls did the store originally order for?

A450

B270

C225

DNone of these

| | | Asked In TCS |

Explanation:

initial the ratio is w/y =1 so w=y

then w+45/y=6/5----------(1)

put eq (1) w=y

then after solving we will be able to found out that w=265

In the equation A + B + C + D + E = FG where FG is the two digit number whose value is 10F + G and letters A, B , C , D , E, F and G each represent different digits. If FG is as small as possible. What is the value of G?

A4

B2

C1

D3

| | | Asked In TCS |

Explanation:

FG is as large as possible and all the 7 numbers should be different.
By trial and Error method,
9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 5 = 35....5 is getting repeated twice.
9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 4 = 34...4 is getting repeated
9 + 8 + 7 + 5 + 4 = 33...3 repeats
9 + 8 + 6 + 5 + 4 = 32
None of the numbers repeat in the above case and 32 is the maximum number FG can have. The value of G is 2.

Three non negative numbers, X, Y and Z are such that the mean is M and the median is 5. If M is 10 more than the smallest number and 15 less than the biggest number, find the value of X+Y+Z.

A15

| | | Asked In TCS |

Explanation:

Given median=5,so y=5
x+y+z/3=10+z ---(1)
x+y+z/3=x-15 ---- (2)
By solving eq. (1) and (2) we get,
x=25,y=5,z=0
so x+y+z=30

A number is divided by 5,2 and 3 successively in order to get remainders of 0,1, and 2 respectively. What will be the remainders when the same number is divided by 2,3 and 5 respectively?

A1,0,4

B1,2,3

C1,2,0

D1,0,2

| | | Asked In TCS |

Explanation:

when divided by 5, quotient is 11 and remainder is zero.
when 11 is divided by 2, quotient is 5 and remainder is 1.
when 5 is divided by three, quotient is 1 and remainder is 2.

when same operation is applied on 55 i.e. successively divided by 2,3,5..
we get remainders as 1,0,4 successively.

Choose the correct option.

A company rented a machine for Rs.700/- a month. Five years later the treasurer calculated that if the company had purchased the machine and paid Rs.100/- monthly maintenance charge, the company would have saved Rs.2000/-. What was the purchase price of the machine?

ARs 24500

BRs 34500

CRs 30500

DRs 34000

| | | Asked In IBM |

Explanation:

Lets assume the price of the machine = x rupee
5 year maintenance charge = 100*60 = 6000
so total investment = x+6000
now total rental charges for five year = 700*60 = 42000
so according to given condition 42000-x-6000 = 2000 so x = 34000
