the highest prime less than 50, that divides the binomial coefficient 100C50 ? a) 37, b) 31, c)47 d)43

4 years ago


Answers : (1)


100C50 = 100!/(50!)2


We can express the factorials as exponents of prime numbers. But that is not suppossedly required. We start with the highest ones.


Exponent of 47 in 100! = [100/47] = 2

Exponent of 47 in (50!)^2  =  [50/47]*2 = 1*2 = 2

So the exponent of 47 in (50!)^2 and 100! is same, hence they cancel out.


(For mcq purposes you can make an intelligent guess from right his point. You require a number that divides 100 thrice but 50 once. 33 is the required number).

Exponent of 43 in 100! = [100/43] = 2

Exponent of 43 in (50!)^2  =  [50/43]*2 = 1*2 = 2


Exponent of 37 in 100! = [100/37] = 2

Exponent of 37 in (50!)^2  =  [50/37]*2 = 1*2 = 2


Exponent of 33 in 100! = [100/33] = 3

Exponent of 33 in (50!)^2  =  [50/33]*2 = 1*2 = 2


Here, one 33 remains uncancelled in the numerator. So the answer is actually 33. But as i dont see an option, i would go for 31 because the other numbers dont satisfy the condition whereas 31 does. But it isnt the HIGHEST prime number doing that.

If A represents the area of the ellipse 3x^2+4xy +3y^2=1, then the value of 3√5A/pi is
area of ellipse= pie * a*b a = (1/3)^2 = b A = 3√5×1/3×pie/pie A= root 5 do check for the formula yourself

Is there any way to find out if two lines given in symmetrical form intersect or not? (without using vectors)
ya we can do dat by equating it to t1 and t2 and then equate x y and z coordinates individually

Try to attempt the problems by your own understanding rather then looking the solution and then understanding it. Also do the every calculatoins by your own. Thanks.

Using vector algebra how to prove three or four vectors are coplanar?
if three vectors are coplanar, then a vector perpendicular to first and second vector will also be perpendicular to third vector. So, A.(BXC) = 0, BXC is a vector perpendicular to B and C....
