1. The ratio of two numbers is 7:4 and their H.C.F is 4. Their L.C.M is:

A. 112

B. 116

C. 124

D. 148

View Answer

Ans : A

Explanation: Let the numbers be 7x and 4x. Then, their H.C.F= x. So, x=4

L.C.M of 28 and 16 is 112

2. What is the smallest 4-digit number that is divisible by 12, 13 and 15?

A. 1990

B. 1560

7. A certain company employed 400 men and 600 women and the average wage was Rs. 22.60 per day. If a woman got Rs. 4 less than a man, then what is their daily wages?

Then (600x+400y)/1000 = 22.60

600x+400y = 22600

600(y-4) +400y = 22600 ; x=y-4

y=25 & x=21.

8. A certain number of men can finish a piece of work in 90 days. If however there were 10 men less it will take 10 days more for the work to be finished. How many men were there originally?
