d. 7/12
e. 2/3

2. What is the greatest prime factor of 4^17-2^28?

a. 2
b. 3
c. 5
d. 7
e. 11

3. In a survey of 248 people, 156 are married, 70 are self-employed and 25% of those who are married are self-employed. If a person is to be randomly selected from those surveyed, what is the probability that the person selected will be self-employed but NOT married?

Lesser jar is 1/3rd full. Pouring 1/4th(same amount of water) into 1/4th full jar will make it 1/2 full

2. What is the greatest prime factor of 4^17-2^28?

= 2^34 - 2^28 = 2^28 ( 2^6-1) = 2^28 * 63 = 2^28 * 3^2* 7

greatest prime factor is 7

a. 1/7
b. 2/7
c. 1/2
d. 7/12
e. 2/3

Statement for second jar is not useful. When we fill the water two times in bigger jar it will fill 1/2 of it. Hence C.

self-employed = 70
married and self-employed = 25% of 156 = 25 /100 * 156 = 156/4 = 39
self employed but not married = 70-39 = 31
probability to selct self employed but not married from 248 = 31/248=1/8

e. 11

2^(2*17) - 2^28 = 2^28(2^6 - 1) = 63(2^28)

Factors of this number are 2,3,7 hence answer is D

4. In a picnic 60% of people ate 2 hotdogs, 30% people ate one hamburger, and 10% people ate one hotdog. The total number of hotdog and hamburgers consumed is 80. How many hamburgers and hotdogs are consumed?

total people = x
ate 2 hot dogs = 0.6x
ate 1 hamburger = 0.3x
ate 1 hotdog = 0.1x

total hotdog + hamburger = 0.6x * 2 + 0.3x + 0.1x = 80
1.6x = 80
x = 50

hamburgers = 15
hotdogs = 65

a. 1/8
b. 4/31
c. 117/148
d. 1/4
e. 31/117

Selfemployed but not married = 70 - 25%(156) = 31

P = 31/248 = 1/8 hence A.

x- number of people
60% people ate 1.2x hotdogs
30% people ate 0.3x hamburger
10% ate 0.1x hotdogs

1.6x=80
x = 50
hotdogs ate = 60 + 5 = 65
hamburger = 80 - 65 = 15.
