In a ship provisions are sufficient for 700 men for 50 days. How long will these be sufficient for if there would have been 200 more men?

Let provision be sufficient for 200 men for x days

As men and days are inversely proportional to each other so,

X/50=700/1000

X=700/1000*50

X=35

What will be remainder when 17200 is divided by 18 ?

When n is even. (xn - an) is completely divisibly by (x + a)

(17200 - 1200) is completely divisible by (17 + 1), i.e., 18.

(17200 - 1) is completely divisible by 18.

On dividing 17200 by 18, we get 1 as remainder.

Option (D)

D is father of A and grandfather of F. So, A is father of F. Thus, D and A are the two fathers. C is the sister of F. So, C is the daughter of A. Since there is only one mother, it is evident that E is the wife of A and hence the mother of C and C and F. So, B is brother of A. There are three brothers. So, F is the brother of C. A, the father, is male. B, the brother, is male. C, the sister, is female. D, the grandfather, is male. E, the mother, is female. F, the brother, is male. So, there are four males.

Adina, Julius, and Tia volunteered to read to children at the public library. Julius worked 2 hours less then Tia. Adina worked twice as many hours as Julius. All together they worked 58 hours. How many hours did Adina work?

If Tia work :x hrs

Julius work :X - 2

Andera work :2 ( x -2)

then ,

X +( X - 2) + 2( X - 2) = 58

X = 16

Andera work: 2( x - 2)

2(16 -2) = 28 hours
