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

25

12

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
