it is given that 1)K/L=16 and 2)(K-L)/10=Z then from 1) K=16L and substitute in 2) which gives (16L-L)=10Z or Z=1,5L . We do not know anything about p,q,r,s, ( the powers of L) so think should be E) :?:

I am also getting 40.

For W to be 16, only b should be greater than q by 4 units. All the others should be equal. Then, Z will be 400/10.

K/L is not given as 16.

Geethu please note that :
"For numbers K and L, the function W is defined as 5a2b7c3d ├╖ 5p2q7r3s. The function Z is defined as (K тАУ L) ├╖ 10. If W = 16, what is the value of Z?"

I solved it as follows
5^a*2^b*7^c*3^d / ( 5^p* 2^q * 7^r * 3^s ) = 16

Only power of 2 is remaining so 2^(b-q) = 16 = 2^4
so b-q = 4, a=p, c=r and d=s
Z = (K-L)/10 = ( 1000(a-p) + 100(b-q) + 10(c-r) + 1(d-s) )/10

= 100 * 4/10 = 40
