A. 50 B. 168 C. 200 D. 368 E. 536 Very nice question. But took more than 5 mins to solve. Used the approach same as discussed above. Is there another way ?

A. 50 B. 168 C. 200 D. 368 E. 536 Consider the diagram. The arrows could be vertical, horizontal or diagonal. Attachment: Ques4.jpg The vertical arrows are shown by the blue arrows. 5 of them will start from x = 0, 5 from x = 1 and so on till x = 9. So you have 50 of these blue arrows. You have another 50 vertical arrows which are the same arrows but with the arrow head on the opposite end (shown by the red arrow). So you have a total of 100 vertical arrows. Similarly, you have 100 horizontal arrows. Now check out the diagonal arrows. One coordinate should be of length 3 and another of 4 (so that the arrow length is 5 and all points are integers). Look at the purple arrows. The x coordinate is 3 and the y coordinate is 4. You can make 7*6 = 42 such arrows. Similarly, you can make 42 arrows with x corordinate as 4 and y coordinate as 3. So you have 84 arrows. But you get another set of 84 arrows by keeping the arrows the same but putting the arrow head on the opposite end so you get a total of 2*84 = 168 arrows. Similarly, you can make arrows in the opposite direction shown by the green arrows. So you have another 168 arrows. Total = 100 + 100 + 168 + 168 = 536 Hi, Tried viewing the diagram but it seems diagram cannot be viewed. Please reupload it, if possible. Regards, Pallavi

Hi Karishma, Many thanks in advance... Will you please tell me how you got this ? " You can make 7*6 = 42 such arrows.[/color]"
How you got 7*6 ?

How you got 7*6 ? x is between 0 and 9 (inclusive) and y is between 0 and 9 (inclusive). So if we need the length of x to be 3, we can start it anywhere from x = 0 to x = 6 (7 cases). If we start the arrow at x = 7, with a length of 3, it will mean that the end point of the arrow will have x coordinate of 10 (which is not allowed). So for the x coordinate, you have 7 options. Similarly, the length of y should be 4 so we can start it anywhere from y = 0 to y = 5 (6 cases) If we start the arrow at y = 6, with a length of 4, it will mean that the end point of the arrow will have y coordinate of 10 (which is not allowed). So for the y coordinate, you have 6 options. Hence you get a total of 7 * 6 = 42 acceptable cases.

I dont think that questions such as this often come in exams. Even for a 700+ level, this is a rare question.

I think there is a typo? Highlighted in red monsama wrote: ANSWER: E If A and B have the same xcoordinate then we have 10 pairs of ycoordinate of A and B per xcoordinate. (eg: 15, 26...) => 10*10 = 100 arrows. Similarly, if A and B have the same ycoordinate then we have another 100 arrows. If A(a,c) and B(b,d) don't have the same xcoordinate or ycoordinate then either ab=3,cd=4 or ab=4,cd=3 In the first case, there are 14 pairs of xcoordinate, and 12 pairs of ycoordinate. => 14*12 = 168 arrows. Similarly in the second case, there are 168 arrows. Therefore, We have 100 + 100 + 168 + 168 = 536 arrows.

Posted from my mobile device What You did not consider is length should be 5 units. The way by which You are selecting could lead to any length. So select a way of making length of line equal to 5 units.

Please help. Thanks in advance1 I hope that u understood the non diagonal type of arrows. Foe example A(1,0) and B(6,0). So the length will be 5 units. Now some arrows are also possible with diagonals. For example A (2,5) and B (5,9). If You check length of this arrow, so it is also 5. So we should include such arrows also. I hope now You are clear.

Length of a line segment^2 = (x2x1)^2 +(y2y1)^2 =5^2 (exact length is 5 ) Here x1,x2,y1,y2 are integers between 0 and 9(inclusive)
=> (x2x1) is integer and (y2y1) is integer .Let x2x1=a and y2y1=b
possible cases :
1. a=0,b=5 2.a=5,b=0 3.a=3,b=4 4.a=4,b=3
For above count(s) of possible combinations are :
1.10*5*2 (inverse ,e.g.: (0,94) and (0,49) ,no doubling where diff is zero to avoid double count ) 2.5*2*10 3.7*6*4 (multiplies by 4 since 4 cases possible for each 7*6 combo ) 4.6*7*4
Above sums up to 536
