    Se we are looking at n(n+1)/2 which are odd i.e. neither n nor (n+1) is a mult of 4.

    The border case no is 44*45/2 just less than 100.
    So from N=2 to N=44, there are total 43 nos. and exactly 11 multiples of 4 within them....and for every multiple of 4, there are 2 such nos such that N(N+1)/2 is even
    Also ans should be 43-11*2 = 21

    Will post solution once others give a try.
    as i said... am blind..... the Q asks for number lesser than N that dont divide it...... thts why.... we are finding number greater than N.... thats all.....

    Try this guys

    hmmm.... taking it as lesser than 1000......
    triangle number = n(n+1)/2
    so we need the case where... n(n+1)/2 = (p+1)^2-p^2
    that is n(n+1)/2 = 2p+1

    now rhs is always odd.... while lhs needs to be odd aswell...
    only possible when neither n or n+1 are mult of 4

    so for n=44 we get a triangular number lesser than 1000
    so all numbers from n=2 to n=44 subtract the mult of 4
    that is 11*2 since either n or n+1 can be a multp of 4
    so 43-22 = 21

    Please explain it
    Take x, y = 3,1
    x+y = 4 (It cant be less as we have to take 1 of dem as 1 and also the other cannot be 2 so its 3)
    hence p = 40.
    Please let me know if m wrong.

    Default Q 71

    Mc donald's ran a campaign in which it gave game cards to its customers.These game cards made it possible for customers to win hamburgers,french fries,soft drinks and other fast food items,as well as cash prizes.Each card had 10 covered spots that could be uncovered by rubbing them with a coin.Beneath three of these spots were "no prizes sign".Beneath the other seven spots were names of prizes,two of which were identical.for ex one card might have two pictures of a hamburger,one picture of a coke,one of french fries,one of a milk shake ,one of $5,one of $1000 and three "no prizes "sign.for this prize the customer could win a hamburger.to win on any card the customer had to uncover the two matching spots before uncovering a "no prize";any card with a "no prize" uncovered was automatically void.Assuming that the two matches and the three "no prize" signs were arranged randomly on the cards what is the probability of a customer winning?

    When divided by 11 the remainder will be Zero.
    So this number can be represented in terms of two AP series,
    9A+6 = 11B
    Write down the first series values, 6, 15, 24, 33, 42, 51,...
    Second series values 11, 22, 33, 44, ....

    The first common terms of the series will be remainder.
    123123123....300digits = 123 * 100
    Now we can easily find the remainder.

    The number inside squareroot is >1 so its squareroot is also > 1. Hence none of theoptions is correct.

    A. 1
    B. 120
    C. 720
    D. 5040
    E. None of these
    14(7!) + 14(13!) = 14*7![1 + 8*9*10*11*12*13]

    2(8!)-21(6!) = 6![2*7*8 - 7*3] = 7![2*8-3]

    14*7![1 + 8*9*10*11*12*13]
    -----------------------------
    7![2*8-3]

    7![14 + 8*9*10*11*12*13]
    -------------------------
    13*7!
    Now the second term is completely divisible by 13 and hence the remainder will be 7!

    Hope i am correct.
