**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Given:-

Numbers- First = 24

Second = x (suppose)

H.C.F. of numbers = 8

L.C.M. of numbers = 48

As we know:

H.C.F.* L.C.M. = Product of numbers

Hence

48*8 = 24*x

x = 16

**2)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the numbers be 3x, 4x

LCM of 3x and 4x is = 12x

So the number 84 is divisible by 12

$\frac{84}{12}$ = 7

The numbers are 7×3 = 21 , 7x 4 = 28

The greatest number is 28

**3)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

let’s say numbers are $x$ and $y$

hence sum of the reciprocals will be Â $\frac{1}{x} + \frac{1}{y}$

orÂ $\frac{x +y}{xy}$

as $x+y$ = 36 (given)

and $xy$ = $HCF \times LCM$

= $3 \times 105 = 315$

after putting the values we will get summation of reciprocals equals toÂ $\frac{4}{35}$

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

We assume that numbers are $hr_1$ and $hr_2$ (where h= H.C.F. of numbers and $r_1$Â and $r_2$ are prime factors)

So L.C.M. will be = $hr_1r_2$ = 120

or $r_1r_2$ = 12

So $r_1$ =4 and $r_2$ = 3 ; numbers will be 40 and 30, sum is 70

or $r_1$ = 12 and $r_2$ = 1 ; numbers will be 120 and 10, sum is 130

Hence only option D justifies.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the two numbers be a,b.

Hence a * b = L.C.M(a,b) * G.C.D(a,b)

It is given that a,b are co-primes, implies G.C.D(a,b) = 1

Hence from the above equation we get L.C.M(a,b) = a*b = 117

**6)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the number = $x$

HCF = 11 and LCM = 825

Product of HCF and LCM = Product of the two numbers

=> $x \times 275 = 11 \times 825$

=> $x = \frac{11 \times 825}{275}$

=> $x = \frac{825}{25} = 33$

=> Ans – (C)

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Prime factorization of 57 = 3 $\times$ 19

Prime factorization of 93 = 3 $\times$ 31

=> L.C.M. of 57 and 93 = 3Â $\times$Â 19Â $\times$Â 31

= 57Â $\times$Â 31 = 1767

=> Ans – (A)

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Factors of 57 = 1 , 3 , 19 , 57

Factors of 513 = 1 , 3 , 9 , 19 , 27 , 57 , 171 , 513

The common factors are = 1 , 3 , 19 , 57

=> Highest common factor = 57

=> Ans – (B)

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

H.C.F. (a,b) $\times$ L.C.M. (a,b) = $a \times b$

The numbers a = 63 and b = 77 and HCF = 7

=> L.C.M. = $\frac{a \times b}{HCF}$

= $\frac{63 \times 77}{7} = 63 \times 11$

= 693

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Factors of : 77 = 1 , 7 , 11 , 77

275 = 1 , 5 , 11 , 25 , 55 , 275

The common factors are 1 and 11

and HCF = 11

=> Ans – (B)

**11)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the LCM = $x$

Numbers are = 55 , 99

Also, product of numbers = HCF $\times$ LCM

=> $55 \times 99 = 11 \times x$

=> $x = \frac{55 \times 99}{11} = 5 \times 99$

=> $x = 495$

=> Ans – (D)

**12)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Prime factorization of

133 = 7Â $\times$ 19

112 = $2^4$Â $\times$Â 7

There is only 1 common factor, and thusÂ the HCF (highest common factor)Â = 7

=> Ans – (B)

**13)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

(diagram)

so LCM of 64 & 56 is = 8*8*7 = 448

So the answer is option A.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let one of the numbers = $x$ and other number = 100

Let L.C.M = $L$ and H.C.F = $H$

According to ques, => $L=4H$ ————–(i)

and $L+H=125$

Substituting value from equation (i), we getÂ : $4H+H=5H=125$

=> $H=\frac{125}{5}=25$

=> $L=4\times25=100$

Thus, product of numbers = $L\times H$

=> $100\times x=100\times25$

=> $x=25$

=> Ans – (B)

**15)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the numbers be $x$ and $y$

It is given that $x^2+y^2=23$ ———–(i)

Also, $x+y=7$

Squaring both sides, we getÂ :

=> $x^2+y^2+2xy=49$

=> $23+2xy=49$

=> $2xy=49-23=26$

=> $xy=\frac{26}{2}=13$

$\therefore$ Product of the numbers =Â **13**

=> Ans – (D)

**16)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the smaller number be $x$ and the larger number = $(x+1146)$

According to ques, on dividing the larger term by smaller one,

=> $(x+1146)=4x+6$

=> $4x-x=1146-6$

=> $3x=1140$

=> $x=\frac{1140}{3}=380$

$\therefore$ Larger number = $380+1146=1526$

=> Ans – (A)

**17)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

LCM of 12,18,21,32 is 2016

Multiples of 2016 between 4000 and 5000 are 4032.

4032 is present in the options.

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**18)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

LCM of given 3 numbers (30, 36, 80) = 720

Multiple of 720 between 1000 and 2000 is 1440.

$\therefore$ Number which gives a remainder 11 in each case (1440 + 11) = 1451

Hence, option AÂ is the correct answer.

**19)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

H.C.F. of the two numbers is 12, let the numbers be $12x$ and $12y$, where $x$ and $y$ are co-prime

Product = $(12x)\times(12y)=2160$

=Â $xy=\frac{2160}{144}$

=> $xy=15$

Now, factors of 15 = 1, 3, 5, 15

Thus, possible values of $(x,y)=(1,15),(3,5)$

$\therefore$ **2** such pairs are possible.

=> Ans – (B)

**20)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the number be $a$ and other number = $b=72$

We know thatÂ : $H.C.F(a,b)\times L.C.M.(a,b)=a\times b$

=> $a\times72=24\times216$

=> $a=\frac{24\times216}{72}$

=> $a=24\times3=72$

=> Ans – (B)
