Marathon is to race as hibernation is to
A marathon is a long race and hibernation is a lengthy period of sleep. The answer is not choice a or b because even though a bear and winter are related to hibernation, neither completes the analogy. (Choice c) is incorrect because sleep and dream are not synonymous.
A man has Rs. 480 in the denominations of one-rupee notes, five-rupee notes and ten-rupee notes. The number of notes of each denomination is equal. What is the total number of notes that he has?
Let number of notes of each denomination be x.
Then x + 5x + 10x = 480
16x = 480
x = 30.
Hence, total number of notes = 3x = 90.
On dividing a number by 357, we get 39 as remainder. On dividing the same number 17, what will be the remainder?
Let x be the number and y be the quotient. Then,
x = 357 x y + 39
= (17 x 21 x y) + (17 x 2) + 5
= 17 x (21y + 2) + 5)
Required remainder = 5.
If the product 4864 x 9 P 2 is divisible by 12, then the value of P is:
Clearly, 4864 is divisible by 4.
So, 9P2 must be divisible by 3. So, (9 + P + 2) must be divisible by 3.
P = 1.
