∆ = ∆

From operation (ii), 100110011

∆ =

∴ ∆ =

The two possiblecases are 2, 6, 6 and 3, 3, 8 (Sum = 14).When Rohan got to know that Sunil got the highest inPhysics among the three subjects, he could answercorrectly as this is possible only with 3, 3 and 8.Therefore, the sum of the marks obtained by Sunil inthe other two subjects is 3 + 3 i.e. 6.6. cA fraction is said to be in its simplest form when thenumerator and the denominator are co-prime.If we observe the fractions carefully, we find that ineach term a remainder of 2 is left when the integerpart of the numerator is divided by the denominator.E.g. 2 by 10, 13 by 11, 26 by 12, 41 by 13, and so on.The fractions can be written as:

[x] + 2[x] + 2[x] + 2[x] + 2, 1+, 2+, 3 + and so on...10111213

7. bWe have the following alternate sequences of oddand even terms:

Number of Terms Terms

1 12 2,43 5,7,94 10,12,14,165 17,19,21,23,256 26,28,30,32,34,367 37,39,41,43,45,47,498 50,52,54,56,58,60,62,64If we observe the sequences carefully the last term inany sequence is the square of the number of terms,i.e. when n = 3, last term = 9; when n = 4, last term= 16; when n = 8, last term = 64 and so on

…

Also, the total number of terms in the sequence is thesum of the number of terms in the alternate sequencesof even and odd terms.Since

is odd.The middle term will be the average of all the terms.Let the average be k.

kn1000

∴ × =

(Both k and n are natural numbers.)Odd factors of 1000 are 1, 5, 25 and 125.(i) When n = 5, k = 200, the consecutive numbers arefrom 198 to 202.(ii) When n = 25, k = 40, the consecutive numbers are28 to 52.(iii) When n = 125, k = 8, the consecutive numbers willnot be natural numbers.

Case II:

The number of terms

‘

∴ × =

(n is a natural number and k is a positive rational numberwhose decimal part is 0.5.)(i) When n = 16, k = 62.5, the consecutive numbersare from 55 to 70.(ii) When n = 80, k = 12.5, the consecutive numberswill not be natural numbers.(iii) When n = 400, k = 2.5, the consecutive numberswill not be natural numbers.So the total number of possible ways is 3.
