Whats the smallest number greater than 2 that gives a [#permalink]  02 Nov 2003, 13:18
1. Whats the smallest number greater than 2 that gives a remainder of 2 when divided by 15,21 and 37?

2. What is the greatest prime number that can divide 2^100 - 2^96?

3.There is a rectangle ABCD,such that One side BC = 8 and the other side AB=4.There is a point P on the side AD, which moves along AD.What is the probablity that the nime PB will not be greater than 5?

Thanks.

(1) Find the LCM of 15, 21, 37 and add 2. answer 3887

(2) Not sure... 2^100 - 2^96 = 2^96 x 15 so the answer could be 5.

(3) For PB to be <= 5, PA should not excced 3.

So the required probability = probability that PA <= 3
= favourable length of PA/ Possible length of PA
= 3/8

2^100 - 2^96 = 2^96*2^4 - 2^96
= 2^96 ( 2^4 - 1 )
= 2^96 ( 16 - 1 )
= 2^96 ( 15 )
Therefore, 2^96 has prime number 2 repeated 96 times. 15 has prime numbers 3 and 5. Since the question asks for the greatest prime number that divides them, 5 it is.

The other question is better explained with a diagram but as I said in a previous post, I suck at drawing those. Maybe I'll try later but that question is easier than the second one. It's about applying pythagore and knowing the hypothenuse.
