Q5) Which of the following is a factor of 18!+1?Answer is C.18! + 1 is only 1 more than the 18!, so none of the factors  2, 3, 4, 5, ...,15, 16, 17, 18 of 18! would be factors for 18! + 1

4. The functions f and g are defined for all the positive integers n by the following rule: f(n) is the number of perfect squares less than n and g(n) is the number of primes numbers less than n. If f(x) + g(x) = 16, then x is in the range:
A. 30 < x < 36 B. 30 < x < 37 C. 31 < x < 37 D. 31 < x < 38 E. 32 < x < 38
Since X lies at most 38 from the options,
Lets find the number of Perfect Squared below 40= 1,4,9,16,25,36 Lets find the number of Primes below 40= 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31,37
Now, f(x) + g(x) = 16 Start with Option C: no of primes less than 31 = \(11\) no of p.s less than 31: \(5\) Total = 16 Answer: C
P.S: The reason I started with option C is because when I analyzed choice A, the value of x is not fixed, and moving the value of A can shift the value of f(x)+g(x). Hence, I started looking for option where I can fix the value of "X"i.e. no prime number exists in that option.

1. The length of the diagonal of square S, as well as the lengths of the diagonals of rhombus R are integers. The ratio of the lengths of the diagonals is 15:11:9, respectively. Which of the following could be the difference between the area of square S and the area of rhombus R?
I. 63 II. 126 III. 252
A. I only B. II only C. III only D. I and III only E. I, II and III
Given: Lengths of the diagonls are integers.Hence, multiplier must be integer.
Lets have Ratio Mulitplier to be 1; Let Diagonal of Square: \(\sqrt{2a} = 15\)
\(So, Area = 15*15/\sqrt{2}*\sqrt{2}\)
Area of Rhombus is given by: \(1/2 d1*d2 = 1/2 *11*9\)
Taking the difference of both values; we get :\(126/2 = 63\) Hence, 1st is True.
Taking the Multiplier to be 2
and performing the same steps, we get difference: 252.
Since, further taking the multiplier will only increase the difference, we shall stop here. Hence only 1 and 3 is correct.
Answer: D

1. The length of the diagonal of square S is 15x, the lengths of the diagonals of rhombus R are 11x and 9x, where x is a positive integer. The area of square S is d*d/2=(15x)^2/=225x^2/2 and the area of rhombus R is diagonal1*diagonal 2/2=11x*9x/2=99x^2/2. So, the difference between them is (225x^299x^2)/2=63x^2. Since x is an integer, the difference must be divisible by 63. Therefore, I is possible for x=1. II is not possible, since if 63x^2=126>x^2=2, which is not possible for an integer x. III is possible for x=2. The answer is D.

2. We have such cases for the sets: (1) Empty set. 1 (2) Contain only 1 element. There are 7 such subsets (3) Contain 2 elements. There are C_7^2=7!/(2!5!)=21 such subsets (4) Contain 3 elements. There are C_7^3=7!/(3!4!)=35 such subsets Therefore, total number of such subsets is 1+7+21+35=64 The answer is E.

3. To find different subsets that do not contain 0 is the same that find the number of different subsets of set {1,2,3,4,5}. The total number of such subsets is 2^5=32. The answer is D.

4. Pick the numbers. Let's check the smallest possible: x=31. f(31)=5 (1,4,9,16,25) and g(31)=10 (2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19, 23,29). Therefore f(31)+g(31)=15, that is not equal to 16. But if we take x=32: f(32)=5 and g(32)=11 (10 previous and 31). So, x=32 is a possible value. Next perfect square of an integer is 36 and the next prime number is 37. So, for not changing the number 16, we can take x=33, 34, 35, 36. The correct answer is C.

5. The number 18!+1 is not divisible by any number from 2 to 18, because 18! is divisible by them. So, the answers A and B are not correct. Since 18!+1 is not divisible by 3, 18!+1 is not divisible by 33 and 39. So, answers В and E are wrong The correct answer is C.

6. The problem states that lcm(x, 2^6, 2^5*3^5)=2^6*3^6. When we calculate lcm we have to take the highest powers in prime factorizations of numbers. If lcm contains 3^6 it must be in some number. So, x=3^6*y. y could be any factor of 2^6. The possible values of x: 3^6, 3^6*2, 3^6*2^2, 3^6*2^3, 3^6*2^4, 3^6*2^5, 3^6*2^6. The correct answer is C.

7. Let two numbers be 25n and 25m, where gcd(n,m)=1. Then 25n+25m=350 or n+m=14. So, our goal is to find pairs of numbers (n,m) such that gcd(n,m)=1 and n+m=14: (1,13), (3,11), (5, 9). The correct answer is C.

8. We know that x*377,910/3,300=some positive integer. Let's simplify this fraction: Divide numerator and denominator by 30: x*12,597/110. 12,597 is not divisible neither by 11 nor 2 nor 5. So, x must be divisble by 110. Then the least value of x is 110. The answer is D.

9. Just add: 1/3+1/9+1/27+1/37=(333+111+37+27)/999=508/999=0.(508). 101st digit after decimal point is 0, because we have period with 3 digits and 101=3*33+2. The correct answer is A.

1. The length of the diagonal of square S, as well as the lengths of the diagonals of rhombus R are integers. The ratio of the lengths of the diagonals is 15:11:9, respectively. Which of the following could be the difference between the area of square S and the area of rhombus R?
I. 63 II. 126 III. 252
A. I only B. II only C. III only D. I and III only E. I, II and III
Let’s say diagonal of square is 15x and diagonals of rhombus are 11x and 9x where x is an integer. Area of square = (1/2) * 15^2 * x^2 = (1/2) * 225 * x^2 Area of rhombus = (1/2) * 11*9 * x^2 = (1/2) * 99 * x^2 Difference of areas = (1/2) * 126 * x^2 = 63 * x^2 So, the different must be a multiple of 63.
I. Here x^2 = 1. Possible option. II. 126 = 63*2. Here x^2 = 2. So, x is not integer. This option is not possible. III. 252 = 63*4. Here x^2 = 4 > x = 2. Possible option
Correct answer is D.

2. Set S contains 7 different letters. How many subsets of set S, including an empty set, contain at most 3 letters?
A. 29 B. 56 C. 57 D. 63 E. 64
Number of subsets with 0 letter = 1 Number of subsets with 1 letter = 7C1 = 7 Number of subsets with 2 letters = 7C2 = 21 Number of subsets with 3 letters = 7C3 = 35 Total number of subsets with at most 3 letters = 1 + 7 + 21 + 35 = 64
Correct answer is E.

3. How many different subsets of the set {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5} do not contain 0?
A. 16 B. 27 C. 31 D. 32 E. 64
Here we need to find out the possible subsets with the numbers {1,2,3,4,5}.
In the short way: Total number of subsets = 2^5 = 32
In the long way: Number of subsets with 0 element (null set) = 1 Number of subsets with 1 element = 5C1 = 5 Number of subsets with 2 elements = 5C2 = 10 Number of subsets with 3 elements = 5C3 = 10 Number of subsets with 4 elements = 5C4 = 5 Number of subsets with 5 elements = 5C5 = 1 Total number of subsets = 1+ 5 + 10 + 10 + 5 + 1 = 32
Correct answer is D.
