Question: HCF of P and Q = ?


Given: 3P – Q – 5 = 0
i.e. 3P – Q = 5

Statement 1: P is completely divisible by 5

Case 1: P = 5, then Q = 10 HCF = 5
Case 2: P = 10, then Q = 25 HCF = 5
Case 3: P = 15, then Q = 40 HCF = 5
Case 4: P = 20, then Q = 55 HCF = 5

i.e. HCF in each case is 5 i.e.

SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: Q is completely divisible by 5

Case 1: P = 5, then Q = 10 HCF = 5
Case 2: P = 10, then Q = 25 HCF = 5
Case 3: P = 15, then Q = 40 HCF = 5
Case 4: P = 20, then Q = 55 HCF = 5

i.e. HCF in each case is 5 i.e.

SUFFICIENT
