n is divided by 4, the remainder is 3 and when n is divided by 7, the remainder is 1 The numbers would be 15, 43, 71,..... Its an AP with difference as 28. > 15 + (n1)*28 Among the options, if there are 13 numbers, the 13th number would be 15 + 12*28 = 351. The 14th number would be 15 + 13*28 = 379. 15th no = 407 14 numbers less than 400. Option D Posted from my mobile device

IMO Answer is D
First number which satisfies the condition is 15, second number which satisfies the condition is 43,
sequence is 15,43,
15+(n1)*28 < 400
n which satisfies the equation is 14.
SO, D

If n is a positive integer less than 400, what is the number of n such that when n is divided by 4, the remainder is 3 and when n is divided by 7, the remainder is 1?
A. 10 B. 12 C. 13 D. 14 E. 15
The values that satisfy both the condition are 15,43,71. So if we write the equation the number has to satisfy 4x+3 and 7y+1. The values of y which satisfy both the equation are y=2,y=6,y=10,14,18 so we see that it jumps by 4. so last number is going to be y=42 which when put into equation number turns out to be 54. hence total numbers to satisfy the condition is 15.
Hence answer is E

n=4x+3 and n=7y+1
4x+3=7y+1
y=4x+2/7
We need to check for how many values of x we get an integer for y. Also note that x must be less than 100 since if x=100, n>400
Going by patterns, we get an integer solution for y for every 7th value of x from x=3 which is a total of 14
Answer is (D)

A. 10 B. 12 C. 13 D. 14 E. 15 Numbers such that when n is divided by 4, the remainder is 3; 3,7,11,15,19,23,27... Numbers such that when n is divided by 7, the remainder is 1; 1,8,15,22,29,36,43.... First n = 15 Next n = 15 + 7*4 = 15 +28 = 43 It is an arithmetic progression with a = 15 and d=28 Last such number < 400 = 15 + 13*28 = 379 n=14 IMO D

C
1st condition: n = 4a+3 = 3,7,11,15,19,23... 2nd condition: n=7b+ 1 = 1,8,15,22,...
So, first common integer in both series is 15. GCD of 4 and 7 is 28.
Therefore, n = 28*x + 15. Now, since n has to be less than 400, we have: 28*x + 15 < 4000 => x < 13.5.. So maximum value of x is 13.

n=4k+3; 3,7,11,15,... n=7m+1; 1,8,15,22...
Then n=28t+15; 15.... 40015=385 385/28 = 13,... Don't forget about 15. 13+1=14

A. 10 B. 12 C. 13 D. 14 E. 15 0 < n positive < 400 when n/4 remainder is 3: n={3 7 11 [15] 19 23…[43]…} when n/7 remainder is 1: n={1 8 [15] 22 29 36…[43]…} the pattern of n such numbers that fit the condition has a common difference of 28 [=4315] thus we need to find the last term with a common difference of 28 from 0 to 400, with a first term of 15 and a last term of 15+28(x1)<400: 15+28(x1)<400,…15+28x28<400,…28x<400+2815,…x<413/28,…x<14.75 x=14 Answer (D).

Remainder of 1 when divided by 7  1,8,15,22,29,36,43,50,57,64,71.... Of the above 15,43,71 leaves a remainder of 3 (the previous number to the multiple of 7 must have only one multiple of 2, 157*2+1, 437*2*3+1, 717*5*3+1). Number of multiples of 7 in 400 = 400/7=57 and 54 is the last multiple below 400 of the form 7*27*2+1. Tn=54 ; 54=2+(n1)4 using AP. N=14. so 14 terms will satisfy the requirement. IMO D

Answer E, Just simply check the options and conclude answer . Only 1 option gives remainder of 3 on dividing by 4 and remainder 1 on diving by 7 i.e 15

Answer is DAccording to the given condition the numbers are: 15,43,71,99,127...We see a nice pattern here and that is the difference between the numbers is 28 so we do not need to calculate the numbers till 400. Since N<400 so the numbers that satisfies the conditions will be 14. [Numbers are: 15,43,71,99,127,155,183,211,239,267,295,323,351,379] Answer is D

n<400 n = 4k+3 = 3,7,11,15,.....43,.......71,....99
n = 7k+1 = 1,8,15,.....43.....,71,.....99
number common in both 15,43,71,99
we get an AP here first tern 15 and common difference = 28 total number of such numbers <400
let a be the first term and d= common difference b=total number of such term then bth term can be found by =a+(b1)d (and this term should be less than 400)
a+(b1)d<400 15+(b1)28<400 (b1)28<385 (b1)<13.75 b<14.75 b= 14
so the total number of such integer = 14 D is the answer

n = 4A+3 n= 7B+1
By quick hit and trial, the first number to satisfy the condition is "15" The next number in the progression would be 15+ LCM(4,7)==> 28
It will turn out be an AP series
where a = 15 d=28 and the max value<400
15, 43,71....... maxvalue<400
solving this will give the answer as 14

Testing the answers, 15 is the only number in the option that will be divided by 4 to give a remainder of 3 and will also be divided by 7 to give a remainder of 1. Hence answer choice E. Posted from my mobile device
