The total number of digits used in numbering the pages of a book having 366 pages is?

A)
732

B)
990

C)
1098

D)
1305


Correct Answer :

990


Explanation :

Total number of digits= No. of digits in 1- digit page nos.(1 to 9) + No. of digits in 2-digit page nos.(10 to 99) + No. of digits in 3- digit page nos(100 to 999).

First 9 pages having 1 digit nos (1x9=9 digits).
Next 90 pages having 2 digit nos (2 x 90=180 digits).
Remaining 267 pages having 3 digit nos (267x3 = 801 digits)

So total will be = (1 x 9 + 2 x 90 + 3 x 267) = (9 + 180 + 801) = 990.

In a garden, there are 10 rows and 12 coloumns of mango trees. The distance between two trees is 2 meters and a distance of one meter is left from all sides of the boundary of the garden. The length of the garden is?

A farmer built a fence around his square plot. He used 27 fence poles on each side of the square. How many poles did he need altogether?

A)
100

B)
104

C)
108

D)
110

Total number of poles needed = 27 x 4 - 4 = 108 - 4 = 104.

Which of the following operations will result in 22?

A)
16 / 12 + 8 - 13 * 15

B)
16 - 12 * 8 / 13 + 15

C)
16 * 12 / 8 + 13 - 15

D)
16 + 12 - 8 * 13 / 15


Correct Answer :

16 * 12 / 8 + 13 - 15


Explanation :

16 * 12 / 8 + 13 - 15
=((16*12) / 8) + 13 -15
= 24 + 13 - 15
= 37 - 15
= 22

If 6★5 = 31, 7★8 = 57, 3★4 = 13, then 9★10 = ?

A)
90

B)
91

C)
81

D)
19


Correct Answer :

91


Explanation :

As, 6★5 = 6 * 5 + 1 = 31
7★8 = 7 * 8 + 1 = 57
and 3★4 = 3 * 4 + 1 = 13
Similarly, 9★10 = 9 * 10 + 1 = 91

If 879 = 8, 625 = 1 and 586 = 9 then, 785 = ?

A)
6

B)
7

C)
8

Correct Answer :

6


Explanation :

879 => (7 + 9) - 8 = 8
625 => (2 + 5) - 6 = 1
and 586 => (8 + 6) - 5 = 9
Similarly, 785 => (8 + 5) - 7 = 6

42 + 22 => 16 + 4 = 20
and 12 + 52 => 1 + 25 = 26
Similarly, 72 + 32 => 49 + 9 = 58
