Hi Debadutta,


(a,b,c) can be

(1,2,3) -------- 2 possibilities (3,2,1) is the other order

(2,3,4) -------- 2 possibilities

.....     --------- -do-


(4,5,6) -------- -do-


it could be

(1,3,5) -------- 2 possibilities

(2,4,6) -------- 2 possibilities


or it could be







So total number of ways = 2*6 + 6 = 18.


Your answer is very fine.

Have confidence in your working. It helps for competitive exam prearation.

21/216 is not the right answer.

The reminder when x^5 + kx^2 is divided by (x-1) (x-2) (x-3) contains no term in x^2. If teh value of k is -10a then a = ? Ans = 9
on dividing x^5 + kx^2 with (x-1) (x-2) (x-3) we get the remainder (k+90)x 2 -239x+150 as the remainder contains no x 2 terms …............k+90=0............k= -90= -10(9) first exp (x-1)...
