Kudos for a correct solution.

Given: 893 x 78 = P

893 x 79 = 893 x (78 + 1)
= (893)(78) + (893)(1)
= P + 893
= D

893x79= 893x(78+1)
= 893x 78 + 893x1
= p+ 893

Given: 893 * 78 = p;

To Find: 893 * 79?

893 * 78 = p ---- Eq. 1
893 * 79 = 893 * (78+1) = 893*78 + 893*1 ---Eq. 2 Substituting Eq 1 in Eq 2 (893*78=p)
Hence,
p+893

Answer D; p+893

Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In PS, IVY approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer.



If 893 × 78 = p, which of the following is equal to 893 × 79?

(A) p + 1
(B) p + 78
(C) p + 79
(D) p + 893
(E) p + 894




Since 893 × 78 = p and 79=78+1, we have 893 × 79 = 893 ×(78+1)=893×78 + 893 ×1 = p + 893.

The answer is (D).

893*78=p (given)
893*79 = 893*(78+1)
78=p/893
893*(p/893+1)
=p+893

No need to do all these steps if you are clear about the concept of multiplication you can straight away mark the answer within 10 seconds. We know that any constant number multiplied by increment of 1 actually adds the same constant to the previous result. For instance 4*2 = 8
4*3 = 12 which is 8 from previous result + constant 4 which is being multiplied everytime. Multiplication is repeated addition. Hence answer is p+893
