Let w and r be respectively the time taken by the man to walk and ride the certain distance one way. So, r =.5 hours r = 1.5 hours. Also, w + r = hours =.75 hours. w = =.5 hours Time required to walk both ways = w = 5 hours.. Let the number of pens purchased be x and the number of notebooks purchased be y. So, 11x 1y 00 By hit and trial we find that y = 5 is the least natural number that satisfy the above equation So, y 5, gives x Hence, y 5 11k and x 85 1k where k is a non-negative integer. Now, x k 0 k 85 k 6 1 So, for k = 0, 1,,,, 5, 6 we have solutions i.e., there are 7 ways possible If a number divides 999 but not 998, then obviously it should be of the form where 0 a 999, 0 b 999 and a, b are integers. a 999 So, 00 cases for 5 And 00 cases for b But 5 is included in both cases. So, required number of positive integers a or 999 b 5, 1.

Must be a multiple of 1 ( 7) So, x is a multiple of both & 7 Let x = 1 k y Then 1 (1k) 008! 1 So, y must be greater than 008 y 008 But 1 (1k) 008! And 008! has much fewer times multiple of and 7. So, y cannot be greater than 008. Which leads to the contradiction that y is greater than 008. So, there is no positive integral solution. 1. Let q p t, where t 0 p p t r p (1 t ) r But if t 0, then we have an odd factor of r which is greater than 1, which is not possible. So, the only possibility is t = 0 i.e., p q r p p p i.e., r p 1 Hence, the solutions are p q k, r k 1, where k is any non-negative integer So, we need to prove that A is divisible by both 7 and 71. n n n n Now, A (90 80 ) (6 61 ) = (Multiple of 90 80) - (Multiple of 6 61) = Multiple of 0 Multiple of 0 = Multiple of 7 Multiple of 7 = Multiple of 7 n n n n Again, A (90 6 ) (80 61 ) = (Multiple of 9 Multiple of 5 = Multiple of 71 Multiple of 71. = Multiple of 71. Hence proved. 16. As n is even, so each of (n + 1), (n + ), (n + 5), (n + 7), (n + 9) are odd. So, their product will contain at least one multiple of and exactly 1 multiple of 5. So, the largest integer that is a divisor of p(n) is 5 = So, N times N zeroes FIITJEE Ltd., Plot No. 7, Sector 1B, Opposite Bal Bhawan International School, Dwarka, New Delhi 1 075, Ph. : /6/65 website :

13 Pre_RMO_1 5N zeroes zeroes So, S(5N 01) Let Akbar and Birbal respectively have k and n-k number of marbles So, (k p) (n k p) (where p is the number of marbles Akbar gives to Birbal) n (k p)...(1) Let Birbal give q marbles to Akbar. So, (n k q) (k q) n (k q)..() From (1) & (), we have n to be a multiple of both and. So, the least possible value of n is Let 1... (n 1) n We observe that So, i.e., maximum value of k is 61. Alternative Method 01 = Also, So, keeping as the middle term and taking terms prior to and after, we have...,1,,,,5,... 0terms 0terms Since 0 1, So this is the maximum possible i.e., the maximum value of k is , , 176, 189, 196, 5 05 So, 01 5 k =. Hence, the largest prime factor of k is Let P n denote the n th term of the sequence. P 01 1 P P P So, we observe that P P P th term in the sequence is 70.. Obviously (x, y) x y xy y y y x But if x y, then (x, y) = 1 So, x = is not possible Case-I : If x = 1, then, y = y FIITJEE Ltd., Plot No. 7, Sector 1B, Opposite Bal Bhawan International School, Dwarka, New Delhi 1 075, Ph. : /6/65 website :

14 Pre_RMO_1 Which is not possible. Case-II : If x = then y = + y + (x, y) y = + (, y) So, y = and y = and the only possibilities Hence the ordered pairs can be (, ) and (, ) i.e., possible pairs.. 8n 9999 n p(say) 8n p 9999 np p n 9999 p 8 But n 01 p 9999 p 8 p p 8 9 7p 16 p 1 or p 1 gives n = 1111, which is permissible. p = gives n = , which is not permissible. So, there is only one natural number n that satisfies the given conditions.. Let the digits from right to left be (a + ), (a + ), (a + 1) and a. So, a 9 a 6 i.e., a = 0, 1,,,, 5, 6 Now, the given number N = (a + ) 00 + (a + ) 0 + (a + 1) + a (a 1)(00 0 ) 00 0 a 0 7(a 1) a So, possible remainders are 8 + 0, 8 + 1, 8 +,..., So required sum = = Since x & y are single digit prime numbers. So, they can be,, 5 or 7. But x + y is also prime. So, y cannot be or 5 y = or 7 Case-I : If y =, then x can be or 7 But the maximum product will occur when x = 7. In this case n Case-II : If y = 7, then x can be So, in this case, n = 7 7 < 7 7. So, the maximum value of n is 15. So, sum of the digits of n = = 1 6. The only possibility for which a b becomes a positive integer is a = b b a a b 11 a b 1 a b Let N ab a b And n ba b a N n 11(a b) But N + n is a perfect square. So, a + b = multiple of 11 FIITJEE Ltd., Plot No. 7, Sector 1B, Opposite Bal Bhawan International School, Dwarka, New Delhi 1 075, Ph. : /6/65 website :

15 Pre_RMO_15 But 0 < a + b = 18 So, a + b = 11 is the only possibility. So, a can take any value from to 9 i.e., 8 possibilities. The 8 possible ordered pairs are (, 9), (, 8), (, 7), (5, 6), (6, 5), (7, ), (8, ), (9, ). 8. Let n ab a b n S(n) P(n) gives, a b a b ab 9a ab b 9,a any non-zero digit. Required sum ( ) ( ) 1 times nine ( 1) ( ) ( ) ( 1) ( 1) times nine 1 times nine times nine 11 times nine 1 times zero times nine 11 times nine 1 times zero So, required sum of the digits = The perfect square ends in 1, So its square root will end in 9 or 1. Again, and So, if k a9b1, then 10 k 180 So, we have possible values for k As 11, 19, 151, 159, 161, 169, 171 and (10 1) , not possible 19 (150 1) , not possible 151 (150 1) , not possible 159 (160 1) , not possible 161 (160 1) , a possibility 169 (170 1) , not possible 171 (170 1) , not possible So, the only possibility is a9b1 = 591 i.e., a 5,b a b b 1 a Last four digits of a is a a a Multiple of 000 a(a 1) Multiple of 5 and So, two cases arise :- Case-I : If a is a multiple of 5, then (a - 1) should be a multiple of. So, the last two digits of a can be 5. Then, let a 0k 5, where k is a two-digit number.

So, this case is not possible Case-II : If a 1 is a multiple of 5 and a is a multiple of. So, the last two digits of a can be 76. Let a = 0p + 76, where p is a -digit number. (0p 76) (0p 76) Multiple of p 1500p p 76 = Multiple of p = multiple of p + 57 = Multiple of 0 0p + 50p + p + 57 = Multiple of 0 So, p is odd So, the last two digits of 50 p + p + 57 = 00 i.e., last two digits of p 50 9 Hence, a 976 And so, 080 a = 70. Let x be the 6 th digit. N = x times 1 times 1 But we know that 01 is a multiple of 1. So, is also a multiple of 1. So, is also a multiple of 1. 6k times one Now, N x So, N 1x times one times one times zero is a multiple of 1. So, 1x is a multiple of 1. Hence, x = is the only possibility i.e., the 6 th digit of N is.. Let N aabb be the required perfect square. Now, N =10a + 11 b = 11(0a + b) p = 11 (0a + b), where N = p So, 0a + b = multiple of 11 99a + (a + b) = multiple of 11 a + b = multiple of 11 But 0 < a + b = 18 So, a + b = 11 is the only possibility. Again, p 11(0a b) = 11(99a + (a + b) = 11(99a + 11) = 11 (9a + 1) So, 9a + 1 = k for some natural number k (k - 1) (k + 1) = 9a a = 7 is the only possibility. b = 11 a = Hence, the four-digit number is 77 = 88.. Obviously a 5 = 5. Also, a, a and a 6 are multiples of, and 6 respectively. So, the even digits occupy the even places. And hence the odd digits the odd places. So, 1 and occupy the 1 st and rd place respectively or vice-versa.

17 Pre_RMO_17 Now, in this case 1a is a multiple of and a, or 6. So, a. Now, we that a should be divisible by and a = or 6. So, a 6. Hence, in this case the only possibility is 165. a a a a a a a 1a 5a Case-II: Now, a1 is divisible by and a =, or 6 a = Again, 1a is divisible by and a or 6 a 6 and hence a6 So, in this case, the only possibility is 165 Hence, the required numbers are 165 and Let N = A B, where A and B Now, B is a multiple of Again A is a multiple of = multiple of 9 = multiple of 9 = multiple of 001 Since, A and B are both multiples of 001, So, N = A B is also a multiple of If HCF (n, ) = 1, then HCF ( n, ) = 1 i.e., in this case n(-n) and have no common factor and hence n( n) cannot be divisibly by. If HCF (n, ) = a, then a is a factor of ( ) and let b a Then n( n) a(ab a) a (b 1) is a multiple of a but not b So, n( n) cannot be a multiple of b (which is a factor of ) Hence n( n) is not divisible by if n <. 7. Let N be the k digit number required Also, let N = a1aa...a k 1 ak But ak 7(given) Also, ak 1 5 (since placing 7 on the left most make it a multiple of 5) N a,a,a,...a 57 1 k New number formed is 7a 1,a,...a k 5 N 7 a a a...a 50 Now, 1 k N 7 a1a a...a k5 N 7 k 7 7a 1 a a...a k 5 N 7 k 7 5N 9 N 7 k1 7N 1 k 7 FIITJEE Ltd., Plot No. 7, Sector 1B, Opposite Bal Bhawan International School, Dwarka, New Delhi 1 075, Ph. : /6/65 website :

18 Pre_RMO_18 k1 1 should be a multiple of 7. So, least value of k + 1 is Least value of N n n (n 1)(n ) = product of two consecutive integers = always a multiple of. If n k 1 type then n (k 1) is a multiple of. If n k, type then n + 1= (k + 1) is a multiple of. But for n k type neither n + 1(= k + 1) nor n + (= k + ) are multiple of. So, we just need to find the number of natural numbers n such that n 1991 which are not multiples of. So, required number of numbers p is prime. So, p cannot be even i.e. p. Again, if p k 1 or k, then p 9k 6k 1 or 9k 1k p (k k 1) or (k k ) Which cannot be prime. p =. p 7 0, which has distinct prime factors,, Both 97 and are primes. So, p = Sum of the digits of p is. C.
