PareshGmatHow does this formula work if it was between the numbers 1 and 2 instead of just 1 etc
Please manipulate it to show general use
testcracker hi
I don't know whether I am okay, but I tried the problem as under
actually the answer is nothing but the difference between 1/4 and 1/5
as all segments made by large ticks are equal and all segments made by small ticks are equal, the least possible distance between any of the tick marks will be the one either the difference between the space enclosed by first small tick and first large tick or the difference between the space enclosed by last small tick and last large tick
the space covered by the first small tick is 1/5, and the space covered by the first large tick is 1/4, so the answer is simply
(1/4 ) - (1/5) = 1/20 = B the answer
thanks
