Question of The Day14-12-2020

What will be the largest 4-digit number, which when divided by 12, 15, 20, 25 respectively leaves remainder 7 in each case.

Correct Answer : a ) 9907

Explanation :

We know that,

The number, which when divided by x, y, z respectively and leaves r remainder in each case is given as:

Number = LCM of (x, y, z) × K + r, where K = 1, 2, 3, …. and so on

Thus, required number = (LCM of 12, 15, 20, and 25) × K + 7

LCM of 12, 15, 20, and 25 will be 300

So, the required number = 300K + 7 …. (1)

Largest four-digit number is 9999

⇒K=Remainder of$$9999 \over 300$$=99

So, Largest number divisible by 300 will be = 9999 – 99 = 9900

In equation (1) putting k = 99

Required number = 300 × 99 + 7 = 9900 + 7 = 9907

Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
