All the rivers are magical, moment a worshiper crosses a river with any number of flowers, it becomes double. (For eg 1 flower becomes 2 flowers, 2 become 4 and so on).

**How many minimum number of flowers** a worshiper needs 2 carry from beginning such that he offers equal number of flowers in all the three temples, and he is left with zero flowers at the end of fourth river.

Lets assume that he offers x flowers at every temple, thus he must have only x flowers left at the end of 3rd temple, otherwise he will not have zero flowers at the end of fourth river.

also we can say that after offering flowers at second temple he should be left with x/2 flowers.

similarly after offering flowers at first temple he should be left with (3x/2)/2 flowers.

Thus he should be carrying (x + 3x/4)/2 flowers initially, i.e. 7x/8 flowers initially.

For number of flowers to be integer, x =8, thus he must carry 7 flowers initially and offer 8 flowers at each temple.

Solve this

0 0 0=6

1 1 1 = 6

2 2 2=6

3 3 3 =6

4 4 4=6

5 5 5=6

6 6 6=6

7 7 7=6

8 8 8=6

9 9 9=6

Here as there are no braces, operators will work as per their precedence.

division and multiplication has same precedence and addition and subtraction has same precedence. Also / and * has higher precedence then + and -.

Thus first % and * should operate, now they being of the same precedence, they will work from left to right order thus % will operate first and the * will work on its result.

division and multiplication has same precedence and addition and subtraction has same precedence. Also / and * has higher precedence then + and -.

Thus first % and * should operate, now they being of the same precedence, they will work from left to right order thus % will operate first and the * will work on its result.

Thus 36%6*3 -9 +1 => 6*3 -9 +1 => 18 -9 + 1=> 10

There are 7 people numbered as 1 to 7.

The number denotes their height.

Arrange them in a line in such a manner so that the line appears in alternative of their heights, I.e. one short then long, again short then long.

The condition is that, if one by one member(remove 1, then 2, then 3) from the line is omitted, the order of their height remains alternative.

You are depositing Rs. 3 in First day and Rs. 3 in Second day in your account. And you are withdrawing Rs. 4 from your account in Third day. You do this repeatedly. When soon do you have Rs. 60?

After third day you will have Rs.2 in your account (3+3-4). So your account will gain Rs.2 every 3rd day.

Thus you would have reached Rs. 60 in (60/2)*3 = 90 days, but important thing to notice is that you are withdrawing Rs. 4 on every third day so your balance will reach Rs.60 mark earlier than that.

So, if we observe we will reach (60-6)=Rs.54 in (54/2)*3=81 days, and as you will deposit Rs.6 in next two days, you will reach Rs.60 in 83days.

For a TV (worth Rs. 50000), a showroom announced two discount schemes.

First scheme is 65% discount.

Second scheme is ‘Ten times 10% discount on price over and over’.

**Which one do you choose and why?**

Check your answer:-

Lets say initial price is X rs, price after 10% discount will be.

X – X*10/100 = 90X/100, final price is 9/10th of initial price.

Thus price after 10 times discount of 10% over and over will be X(9/10)^10 = 0.3486X.

While price after 65% discount will be 0.35X.

Thus it will be more beneficial to choose Second scheme.
