The least possible number which when successively been divided by 5, 3, 4, 7 gives the remainder 2, 2, 1, 2 respectively will be
Correct Answer : c ) 567Explanation :
We know that
Dividend (D) = Divisor (d) * Quotient (Q) + Remainder (R)
Here, Remainder should always be less than divisor.
Let us assume the last dividend which will be divided by 7 is x
Thus, our required number or dividend will be
((((x * 7) + 2 ) * 4 + 1) * 3 + 2 ) * 5 + 2)
So, for the number to be minimum x = 1
So, the least required number will be
=((((1 * 7) + 2 ) * 4 + 1) * 3 + 2 ) * 5 + 2)
= ((37 * 3 + 2) * 5 +2 )
Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
