On a tuned piano, a certain B string vibrates 494 times per second. If this B string vibrates 1.06 times as rapidly as the B-flat string next to it approximately how many times per second does the B-flat string vibrate?

A. 455
B. 456
C. 466
D. 488
E. 524



494=1.06* b flat
b flat = 494/1.06
IMO C 466

Freq of B-flat= 494/1.06 = 494*100/106 = (2*13*19*100)/(2*53)= (52*19*50)/(2*53) = approx on higher side = 19*25 = 475

Closest value below 475: Ans C / 466
