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


(1,1,1)


(2,2,2)


....


....


(6,6,6).


 


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.

(2x+3y) is divisible by 17,then for what value of k; (9x+ky) is divisible by 17. Please give the solution.
 
 
gcd(2x+ 3y, 9x + ky ) = 17 or gcd(2x + 3y, (9x + ky) - 4(2x + 3y)) = 17 or gcd(2x + 3y, (x + (k-12) y) = 17 gcd ( 2x+ 3y - 2(x + k- 12y), (x + (k-12) y)) = 17 so 27y -2k y is divisible by 17...

4(2x+3y)+(9x+5y) = 17(x+y). Since RHS is divisible by 17, and so is 4(2x+3y), we must have 9x+5y also divisible. Hence for any k such that k = 5+19m for any integer m, we have 9x+ky...
