Suppose 1^{st }January fell on a Sunday in the year 2020 (leap year), then which day of the week would 1^{st }January fall on, in 2022? 2. A particular machine was sold to Business A for $850 even though the original price was $1000. Then after using it for 3 years, the machine was sold to Business Z at a 40% reduction from Business A's buying price. How much percentage is the selling price to Business Z lower than to the original price of the machine? Express your answer in % terms only. 3. 2^{2} = 4^{1 }; 2^{4} = 4^{2 }; 2^{6} = 4^{3}. Going by that sequence, calculate the value of x : 2^{72} = 4^{x}. 4. A coin has ^{2}/_{3 }probability of getting heads whereas ^{1}/_{3} probability of getting tails. Is the coin biased? State True or False. 5. Shares of Apple Inc. on the stock exchange fall by exactly 6% from $100.00 on January 25. Next day they rise exactly 6%. How much was the closing price of Apple Inc. on 26^{th} January. Answer needs to be given correct to 2 decimal places. 6.

If two angles in a triangle are equal, will the 3rd angle be equal to the other two? State ALWAYS or SOMETIMES or NEVER. 10.The maximum possible score in an exam was 80 and all questions carried equal weightage.

an1l75 1,025 Report post Posted February 1, 2017 (edited) IGN-an1l75 Royal Revolt 2 On a Wednesday (3 days extra) Selling price to Z is 510, so 49% lower 36 False. I see this as a trick question, a coin has no conscience so can't be biased. It's now $99.64 0.00058 22/7 is rational. Pii is irrational, but 22/7 isn't pii. 5950 Sometimes, only when the two are 60 degrees the third one is also 60, in all other cases this isn't the case. There are 20 questions since 4*20 is 80. He didn't answer 2 questions, so he has 18 questions for the other results. He has to answer at least 15*4 correct to be over 57 and 15*4 + 3*-1 = 57. So 15 correct answers and 3 incorrect ones. 15/20 * 100% is 75%. Edited February 2, 2017 by an1l75 Share this post Link to post Share on other sites

Suppose 1st January fell on a Sunday in the year 2020 (leap year), then which day of the week would 1st January fall on, in 2022? Response: Wednesday °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q2. A particular machine was sold Business A for $850 even though the original price was $1000. Then after using it for 3 years, the machine was sold to Business Z at a 40% reduction from Business A's buying price. How much percentage is the selling price to Business Z lower than to the original price of the machine? Express your answer in % terms only. Response: 49%. Indeed, Business Z’s buying price is equal to 850 - (850/100)*40 = 850 – 340 = $510. The reduction of Business Z’s buying price relative to the original prize is equal to 1000 – 510 = $490, in percentage (490/1000)*100 = 49%. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q3. 2^{2} = 4^{1} ; 2^{4} = 4^{2} ; 2^{6} = 4^{3}. Going by that sequence, calculate the value of x : 2^{72} = 4^{x}. Response: x is equal to 36. Indeed, 2^{72} = 1.844674e+19 and 4^{36} = 1.844674e+19 °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q4. A coin has 2/3 probability of getting heads whereas 1/3 probability of getting tails. Is the coin biased? State True or False. Response: True, the coin is biased. If the coin is not biased the probabilities of getting heads and tails are both equal to 1/2. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q5. Shares of Apple Inc. on the stock exchange fall by exactly 6% from $100.00 on January 25. Next day they rise exactly 6%. How much was the closing price of Apple Inc. on 26th January. Answer needs to be given correct to 2 decimal places. Response: $99.64. Indeed, the closing price of Apple Inc. on 25th January is 100 – (100/100)*6 = 94, and the closing price of Apple Inc. on 26th January is 94+(94/100)*6 = 94 + 5.64 = $99.64 °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q6. The following number must be rounded off to 2 significant figures. 0.0005845. Response: 0.00058 (taking the floor or rounding towards minus infinity), 0.00059 (taking the ceiling or rounding towards plus infinity), 0.00058 (rounding to nearest). °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q7. The value of Pi is taken as 22/7 in fractions. Is 22/7 a rational number? Response: Yes, it is. In mathematics, a rational number is any number that can be expressed as the quotient or fraction p/q of two integers, a numerator p and a non-zero denominator q. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q8. An investigation was set up where any people participated. The figure was 6,000 rounded to the nearest hundred. What is the lowest possible amount of people if the data is correct? Response: 5,950. All the numbers ranged from 5,950 to 6,049 are equal to 6000 if rounded to the nearest hundred. Thus, the lowest possible amount of people is 5,950. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q9. If two angles in a triangle are equal, will the 3rd angle be equal to the other two? State ALWAYS or SOMETIMES or NEVER. Response: SOMETIMES. Indeed, according to the isosceles triangle theorem, the two angles opposite the equal sides of an isosceles triangle are themselves equal, while if the third side is different then the third angle is different. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Q10.The maximum possible score in an exam was 80 and all questions carried equal weightage. For each correct answer 4 marks were awarded whereas for each wrong answer 1 mark was deducted. For no answer, the marks remained unchanged. A student got 57 marks in which he failed to attempt only 2 questions. Answer the number of questions he got correct as a percentage of total number of questions. Response: 75%. Indeed, the exam was comprised of a total of 20 questions (80 max score / 4 marks for correct answer = 20 questions). The student did not answered to 2 questions. In the remaining 18 questions, he gave 15 correct answers and 3 wrong answers scoring (15*4)–(3*1) = 60– 3 = 57. Therefore, the number of correct answer as a percentage of total number of questions is equal to: (15/20)*100 = 0.75 * 100 = 75. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Thanx KKStar for hosting this trivia!

Come on, 1^{st} January 2022 will be a “Holiday” and a “Drinksday”. This I can tell even now. 2. By the rules of accounting, after 6 years of usage, any machine’s value should go to $0. If we take this as a calculating base, after 3 years the price should be at 50% of it’s buying price, meaning $425. Original list price is irrelevant. This is a total discount of 57.5%. Business Z has bought it for an exaggerated price of $510. No wonder they are a failure and need to buy second hand machines… 3. 2^{72} = “ERROR”… Hmm… 4. A known fact. You can load a die, but you can’t bias a coin. 5. Yep, Apple is going down… 6. For student exams grades, 0.45 is considered as 0.5, therefore the grade will go up for 0.00059 7. An apple Pi is rational indeed. You can even eat it alive… You can’t eat 22/7 though. 8. The problem arise when some of the women there were pregnant. Then they should have been counted as 1.5 and the answer given would be wrong 9. In a human triangle, even if the couple’s angle is equal, the mistress will have a bigger angle anyway… 10. This teacher has a problem with elemental mathematics. He miscalculated the number of questions. Max grade should be 100. Genie & Master alliance Rules! Gems, come to me...
