Sol - Product of n numbers = 1*2*3.... n = n ! = 990 * K = 9* 10 *11 * K

The least possible value of n will be 11, as 11 is a prime number which is there in the product of the n numbers.

38,39,40,41,42

Sol- I guess, there is some typo error in the question.

for the sum to be 350, the number of terms in the sequence has to be a multiple of 10 ( because 7 * 10 = 70, which also means if we add 7 ten times then only we will get a multiple of 10 in the sum. Its hard for me to explain this ne but if you use some number plugging you will get the idea what I am trying to explain here ..)

So the only options which satisfies this logic is 40. as per the options given.

3. Ben needs to form a committee of 3 from a group of 8 engineers to study designs. if two of the engineers are too inexperienced to serve together on the committee. how many different committees can ben form?

Sol - Number of committees in which 2 inexperienced engineers wont be together = Total number committees - Number of committees in which they are together.

Total number of C = 8C3 = \frac{8*7*6}{3*2} = 56
Number of C in which they are together = 1*1* 6 = 6

Required number = 56-6 = 50

Ben needs to form a committee of 3 from a group of 8 engineers to study designs. if two of the engineers are too inexperienced to serve together on the committee. how many different committees can ben form?

2 inexperienced engineers
6 engineers

2 conditions
Condition 1 : All 3 from 6 engineers = C(6,3) = 20 ways

Condition 2
Need 1 from 2 inexperienced engineers = C(2,1) = 2
2 from 6 engineers = C(6,2) = 15
Ways = 15*2 = 30

No of different committees = 30+20 = 50.

question 2

sum of all is 350 and each term is either 7 or 77
If all the numbers are 7 then n is 50 (not in option)
If one number is 77 then n =40 (350-77 =273) divide it by 7 you get 39. So 39+1 =40

IMO 40
