1 :: 36 people {a1, a2, ..., a36} meet and shake hands in a circular fashion. In other words, there are totally 36 handshakes involving the pairs, {a1, a2}, {a2, a3}, ..., {a35, a36}, {a36, a1}. Find the size of the smallest set of people such that the rest have shaken hands with at least one person in the set?
For at least one person & for exactly one person =36/3
For at least two person & for exactly two person =36/2
so
ans is 36/3= 12
if question is asked lyk no "cycle" then n-1.

C. 4
D. 5
L=7
G=8
Total number of students(U)=15

draw a simple diagram representing the above situation.
we need to find out L INTERSECTION G.
Thus we have,
L UNION G + N = 15
L UNION G = L + G - L INTERSECTION G = 7 + 8 - L INTERSECTION G
L INTERSECTION G= 7 + 8 +N-15
= 7+8+3-15
= 3

Read More8 :: How many 5 digit numbers can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (but with repetition) that are divisible by 4?
Divisibility rule of 4 is last two digits are divisible by 4
so in 5 digit no last two digit should always be 12,24,32,44,52;
(any one of them may be)
so for last two digits 5 ways are possible ;
since repetion are allowed then for 3rs place form right there are also 5 ways so in 3rd place either of 1,2,3,4,5 is possible;
simillarly at 4 rth place either of 1,2,3,4,5 is possible so again 5 ways are possible
simillarly at 5th place also 5 ways are possible
so total no are: 5*5*5*5=625

10 :: The cost of one pencil, two pens and four erasers is Rs.22 while the cost of five pencils, four pens and two erasers is Rs.32.How much will three pencils, three pens and three erasers cost?
Let a, b, and c denote pencil, pen and eraser respectively.
Given that the cost of one pencil, two pens and four erasers is Rs.22
This can be written as,
a + 2b + 4c = 22 ..........(1)
Similarly, the cost of 5 pencils, 4 pens and 2 erasers is Rs. 32
This implies ....
5a + 4B + 2c = 32 ......... (2)
Adding (1) and (2), we get
6a + 6b + 6c = 54
We need to find the value of 3a + 3b + 3c.
Dividing by 2, we get
3a + 3b + 3c = 27.
Hence, the cost of 3 pencils, 3 pens, and 3 erasers is Rs.27

By Direct approach :
more men,more hectares
