Step 1

Since an electric pole is there at every 28 m, it will be present at distances which are multiples of 28.

Step 2

Similarly, a telegraph pole is there at every 36 m. It will thus be present at distances which are multiple of 36.

Step 3

Now the distance at which both types of poles will be present again, should be a multiple of both 28 and 36. Therefore, we need to find the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 28 and 36 in order to find such distance.

Step 4

LCM of 28 and 36 = 252 m.

Step 5

Therefore, both types of poles will be together again after a distance of 252 m.

Step 1

Mark goes to Amity every 4 th days and Kimberly goes to Amity every 6 th days. So like this they will both will take session on every 12 days.

Step 2

In order to find the number of days after which both of them goes together, we need to find a number which is as small as possible and divisible by both 4 and 6. Therefore we need to find LCM of 4 and 6 which is 12 days.

Step 3

Now since both of them goes to school every 12 th days. Therefore number of session in next 60 days they will take = 60 / 12 = 5

Step 1

The length and breadth of a rectangular courtyard is 7 m 2 cm and 3 m 15 cm respectively

Step 2

Convert each dimension into cm. length = 7 m 2 cm Since 1m = 100 cm

So that length in cm = 7 × 100 + 2

= 700 + 2

= 702 cm

Step 3

breadth = 3 m 15 cm

breadth in cm = 3 × 100 + 15

= 300 + 15

= 315 cm

Step 4

Therefore the length and breadth of a rectangular courtyard in cm is 702 cm and 315 cm respectively

Step 5

If the size of the stones is maximum then least number of stones are required. Therefore the maximum size of the stones is the HCF of 702 and 315

If you look at the question carefully, you will notice that a number is divisible by 12 and 18. Now it will be necessarily divisible by the LCM of 12 and 18 i.e 36. Since, we know that if a number is divisible by two numbers, then it must be divisible by the LCM of two numbers.

Step 1

Since remainder of 157, 258 and 629 is 7, 8 and 9 respectively, therefore subtract the remainder 7, 8 and 9 from the number 157, 258 and 629 respectively. or 157 - 7 = 150 or 258 - 8 = 250 or 629 - 9 = 620

Step 2

The greatest number which divides 157, 258 and 629 leaving remainder 7, 8 and 9 respectively is the HCF of 150, 250 and 620

Step 1

We have to find the largest number that divides 505 and 253 leaving remainder 1.

Step 2

In other words, we have to find the largest number that divides (505-1) and (253-1) leaving no remainder. Such number is the Highest Common Factor (HCF) of:

504 [i.e., 505 - 1]and 252 [i.e., 253 - 1].

Step 3

Let us now find the HCF of 504 and 252. All prime factors of 504:

 2 | 504 2 is a factor of 504 2 | 2 is a factor of 252 252 2 | 2 is a factor of 126 126

| 3 is a factor of 21

| 7 is a factor of 7

| 1

3 is a factor of 63

7

Therefore, 504 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7.

Step 4

All prime factors of 252:

2

| 2 is a factor of 252

| 2 is a factor of 126

| 3 is a factor of 63

| 3 is a factor of 21

| 7 is a factor of 7

| 1

252

126

7

Therefore, 252 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7.

Step 5

The HCF of 504 and 252 is = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 7 = 252.

Step 6

Thus, the largest number which divides 505 and 253 leaving remainder 1 is 252.
