6. | The product of two numbers is 4107. If the H.C.F. of these numbers is 37, then the greater number is: |
|||||||

Answer: Option C Explanation: Let the numbers be 37 Then, 37 Now, co-primes with product 3 are (1, 3). So, the required numbers are (37 x 1, 37 x 3) Greater number = 111. |

7. | Three number are in the ratio of 3 : 4 : 5 and their L.C.M. is 2400. Their H.C.F. is: |
|||||||

Answer: Option A Explanation: Let the numbers be 3 Then, their L.C.M. = 60 So, 60 The numbers are (3 x 40), (4 x 40) and (5 x 40). Hence, required H.C.F. = 40. |

8. | The G.C.D. of 1.08, 0.36 and 0.9 is: |
|||||||

Answer: Option C Explanation: Given numbers are 1.08, 0.36 and 0.90. H.C.F. of 108, 36 and 90 is 18, H.C.F. of given numbers = 0.18. |

9. | The product of two numbers is 2028 and their H.C.F. is 13. The number of such pairs is: |
|||||||

Answer: Option B Explanation: Let the numbers 13 Then, 13 Now, the co-primes with product 12 are (1, 12) and (3, 4). [Note: Two integers So, the required numbers are (13 x 1, 13 x 12) and (13 x 3, 13 x 4). Clearly, there are 2 such pairs. |

10. | The least multiple of 7, which leaves a remainder of 4, when divided by 6, 9, 15 and 18 is: |
|||||||

Answer: Option D Explanation: L.C.M. of 6, 9, 15 and 18 is 90. Let required number be 90 Least value of Required number = (90 x 4) + 4 = 364. |
