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.

10 speakers that includes 3 specific persons (A, B, C) are to speak in a function. Find the number of ways they can be arranged to speak if A has to speak before B and B has to speak before ...
For first case select three positions out of 10 and A,B,C can be arranged only in 1 way in those secletions i.e 10C1 *1. Then 7 remaining can be arranged in 7! ways. For second one just...

It will be 7! only 3positions have already been selected. So 7P7 i.e 7! ways.
Harsh Patodia 2 months ago
Your answer is right Natarajan. In Harsh’s approach, you choose 3 positions for the special three in 10 C 3 ways and then arrange the remaining 7 in 7! ways. So nr of ways = 7! X 10 C 3...

if the sum of first n terms of an A.P. is cn 2 ,then the sum of squares of these n terms is (A) n(4n 2 -1)c 2 /2 (B) n(4n 2 +1)c 2 /3 (C) n(4n 2 -1)c 2 /3 (D) n(4n 2 +1)c 2 /6
A be the first term and d be the difference of the AP sum of n terms is n(A + d(n-1)/2) = cn 2 simplifying we get the equation as (A-d/2) + nd/2 = cn now comparing coefficients in...

In what ratio the line joining (2,4,5),(3,5,-4) is divided by the yz-plane.
Let the ratio be k:1 then point of division by section formula 3k+2÷k+1(x coordinate ) as this lie on y z plane hence x coordinate =0 K=-2÷3 hence it divides externally in the ration 2:3
