1. In a three digit number, the hundred digit is 2 more than the tens digit and the units digit is 2 less than the tens digit. If the sum of the digits is 18, find the number?.
 975
 753
 642
 None of these
4

View Answer
Solution:
Let the three digit numbers be 100a + 10b + c
a = b + 2
c = b  2
a + b + c = 3b = 18 => b = 6
So a = 8 and b = 4
Hence the three digit number is: 864

12.A box contains 3 blue marbles, 4 red, 6 green marbles and 2 yellow marbles. If three marbles are drawn what is the probability that one is yellow and two are red?
 24/455
 3/91
 12/455
 15/91
47

View Answer
Solution:
Given that there are three blue marbles, four red marbles, six green marbles and two yellow marbles.
When three marbles are drawn, the probability that one is yellow and two are red
= (²C₁)(⁴C₂)/¹⁵C₃
= (2 * 4 * 3 * 3 * 2)/(1 * 2 * 15 * 14 * 13) = 12/455

16.A box contains 3 blue marbles, 4 red, 6 green marbles and 2 yellow marbles. If three marbles are picked at random, what is the probability that they are all blue?
 1/455
 2/455

 4/455
61

View Answer
Solution:
Given that there are three blue marbles, four red marbles, six green marbles and two yellow marbles.
Probability that all the three marbles picked at random are blue = ³C₃/¹⁵C₃ = (1 * 3 * 2 * 1)/(15 * 14 * 13) = 1/455

18.A box contains 3 blue marbles, 4 red, 6 green marbles and 2 yellow marbles. If two marbles are picked at random, what is the probability that they are either blue or yellow?
 3/22
 4/21
 2/21
 1/14
71

View Answer
Solution:
Given that there are three blue marbles, four red marbles, six green marbles and two yellow marbles.
Probability that both marbles are blue = ³C₂/¹⁵C₂ = (3 * 2)/(15 * 14) = 1/35
Probability that both are yellow = ²C₂/¹⁵C₂ = (2 * 1)/(15 * 14) = 1/105
Probability that one blue and other is yellow = (³C₁ * ²C₁)/¹⁵C₂ = (2 * 3 * 2)/(15 * 14) = 2/35
Required probability = 1/35 + 1/105 + 2/35
= 3/35 + 1/105 = 1/35(3 + 1/3)
= 10/(3 * 35) = 2/21
