1) 30 2) 31
3) 32 4) 35
5)None of these
Answer : 30
Explanation : HCF of 408 and 312 is 24.
So, total numbers of sections = (408+312) /24  = 30

Q3.
What are the two natural numbers whose difference is 66 and the LCM is 360 ?
1) 90 and 24 2) 120 and 24
3) 120 and 54 4) 180 and 114
5)None of these
Answer : 90 and 24
Explanation : The factors of 360 = 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 X 3 X 5
So, two numbers are 2 X 2 X 2 X 3 =24 and 2 X 3 X 3 X 5 = 90

The L.C.M and H.C.F of two numbers are 660 and 10 respectively. If the sum of the numbers is 170, what is the difference between the numbers ?
1) 50 2) 56
3) 60 4) 64
5)None of these
Answer : 50

Q5.
The sum of two numbers is 27 and their H.C.F is 3. If one of the number is lies between  13 to 16, the find the value of the other number ?
1) 12 2) 15
3) 18 4) 24
5)None of these
Answer : 12
Explanation : Let, two numbers are 3x and 3y respectively.
Then, 3x + 3y = 27  
 or 3 (x + y) = 27
or (x + y) = 27/3 = 9
So, pairs of numbers are  9 = (1,8) , (2,7) , ( 3,6) and  (4,5) .
Thus the numbers are 3 x 4 = 12 and 3 x 5 =15

Q6.
What is four-digit largest number which when divided by 4, 5 , 6, 8 and 12 leaves reminder is  zero in each case ? 
1) 9936 2) 9950
3) 9960 4) 9990
5)None of these
Answer : 9960
Explanation : The L.C.M of 4, 5 , 6, 8 and 12  is 120. 
The four-digit largest number is 9999.
Then, if 9999 is divided by 120, reminder is 39.
So, the require number = 9999 - 39 = 9960.

Q7.
A rectangular size floor has 240 feet length and 200 feet wide. How many largest square size marbels slabs are require to pave ,so that no waste of slabs in the paving ?
1) 24 2) 25
3) 30 4) 36
5)None of these
Answer : 30
Explanation : The H.C.F of 240 and 200 is 40.
Area of the floor = (240 X 200) square feet and area of the slab is (40X40) square feet.
So, Numbers of slabs require = (240 X 200)/(40X40) = 30.

Q8.
A worker has paid Rs.4320 if he works for all day but he has paid Rs.2520 due to some days of absent in a month.How many days he was absent ?
1) 2 days 2) 3 days
3) 4 days 4) 5 days
5)None of these
Answer : 5 days
Explanation : The H.C.F of 4320 and 2520 is 360.
So, 4320/360 = 12 days and 2520/360 = 7 days
Thus, numbers of he absent =12-7=5 days.

Q9.
The H.C.F and L.C.M of two numbers are 13 and 455 respectively. If one of the numbers lies between 75 and 125, then what is that number ?
1) 78 2) 91
3) 104 4) 117
5)None of these
Answer : 91
Explanation : Let, two numbers are 13x and 13y respectively.
So, 13x X 13y  = 13 X 455
or xy = 35
 Then, pairs  of numbers are 35 = (1 X 35) , (5 x 7).
So, second pairs is considerable i.e. 13X5 = 65 and 13 X 7 = 91

Q10.
The L.C.M of two numbers is 495 and their H.C.F is 5. If the sum of the numbers is 100, then what is their difference ? 
1) 10 2) 12
3) 15 4) 20
5)None of these
Answer : 10
Explanation : Let, two numbers are 5x and 5y respectively. 
So, 5x X 5y = 5 X 495
or 25xy = 5 X 495 
or xy = 99
So, pairs of numbers are  i.e. 99 = (1 X 99)  and (9 x 11)
Therefore , the satisfy numbers are 9 x 5 = 45 and 11 x 5 = 55
So, the difference is 55 - 45 = 10.
