Answer:
Explanation:
Lettheyearsben,n+7,n+14,....,n+42.( useformulaT n = a + (n 1)d tofindnthterm)
n 7
Sum=S n = (2a + (n 1)d) = (2n + (7 1)7) =13,524
2 2

7n + 147 = 13, 524

n=1911

a.16
b.24
c.12
d.18
Explanation:
Letthetreewasbrokenatxmetersheightfromthegroundand36xbethelengthofotherpartofthetree.

Fromthediagram,(36 x)
2 2 2
= x + 12

2 2
1296 72x + x = x + 144

72x = 1296 144

x = 16

Areaoftherectangularground=17 8 = 136m 2

Areaofthebigrectangleconsideringthepathwidth=(17 + 2 1.5) (8 + 2 1.5) = 220m 2

Areaofthepath=220 136 = 84m 2

8.AsumofRs.3000isdistributedamongA,B,andC.Agets2/3ofwhatBandCgottogetherandcgets1/3of
whatAandBgottogether,C'sshareis?
Explanation:
B + C 3
LetB+Ctogethergot3units,thenAget2units.or = (1)
A 2
A + B 3
LetA+Btogethergot3units,thenBget1units.or = (2)
C 1
A + B + C 3 + 2 5 20
ByusingComponendoandDividendo,wecanrewriteequations(1)and(2), = = = and
A 2 2 8
A + B + C 3 + 1 4 20
= = =
C 1 1 5

SoA=8,B=7,C=5

C'sshare= 3000 = 750
(8 + 5 + 7)

9.Thenumbers272738and232342,whendividedbyn,atwodigitnumber,leavearemainderof13and17
respectively.Findthesumofthedigitsofn?
a.7
b.8
c.5
d.4
Explanation:
Fromthegiveninformation,(27273813,23234217)areexactlydivisiblebythattwodigitnumber.
WehavetofindtheHCFofthegivennumbers272725,232325.
HCF=25.
Sosumofthedigits=7.

10.Assumethatf(1)=0andf(m+n)=f(m)+f(n)+4(9mn1).Forallnaturalnumbers(Integers>0)mandn.Whatisthe
valueoff(17)?
a.5436
b.4831
c.5508
d.4832
Explanation:
f(1)=0
f(2)=f(1+1)=f(1)+f(1)+4(9111)=0+0+48=32
f(4)=f(2+2)=f(2)+f(2)+4(9221)=32+32+435=204
f(8)=f(4+4)=f(4)+f(4)+4(9441)=204+204+4143=980
f(16)=f(8+8)=f(8)+f(8)+4(9881)=980+980+4575=4260
f(17)=f(1+16)=f(16)+f(1)+4(91611)=4260+0+4143=4832
