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.

The solution set of the equation 4 log 9 x -6.x log 9 2 + 8 = 0 is ______.
 
 
We have x log a y = y log a x S, x log 9 2 = 2 log 9 x 4 log 9 x -6.x log 9 2 + 8 = 0 => (2 2 ) log 9 x – 6. 2 log 9 x + 8 = 0 => (2 log 9 x ) 2 - 6. 2 log 9 x + 8 = 0 let 2 log 9 x = y...
