Positive Integer A gives the remainder of 6 when divided by another positive Integer B. If A/B = 47.24, what is the value of B?
96
75

A/B = 47.24 =
\(47\frac{24}{100}\) = \(47\frac{6}{25}\)
Any value of B should have the below two properties
1) Should be a factor of 100
2) Should be of the form\(\frac{24}{100}\) if the numerator and denominator are multiplied together
You can see that without going to the step#2, the answer is only D - 25
If you want a better understand the theory, go through Karishma's blogs....They are wonderful in the sense that she has articulated the thought process in easy to understand words....
Try a variant of this question -
If A/B = 47.24, which of the following can be a value of B?
A. 20
B. 50
C. 200
D. 250
E. 12
This can have multiple answers, so the question can be A,B,C,etc
