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?

Explanation:
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?

Explanation:
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:

Explanation:
Clearly, 4864 is divisible by 4.
So, 9P2 must be divisible by 3. So, (9 + P + 2) must be divisible by 3.
P = 1.
