Three plots having an area of 132, 204 and 228 square metres respectively are to be subdivided into equal vegetable beds. If the breadth of a bed is 3 metres, find the maximum length that a bed can have.
HCF of a and b = 12 ∴ Numbers = 12p and 12q , where p and q are prime to each other. ∴ a > b > 12
Correct Option: D
HCF of a and b = 12 ∴ Numbers = 12p and 12q , where p and q are prime to each other. ∴ a > b > 12 ∴ a = 36 ; b = 24
A fraction becomes 1/6 when 4 is subtracted from its numerator and 1 is added to its denominator. If 2 and 1 are respectively added to its numerator and the denominator, it becomes 1/3 Then, the LCM of the numerator and denominator of the said fraction, must be
