Answer Q1.

Answer Q1.

very bell tolls at a different interval of time,but not in fraction of minutes.

Total time = 3600 x 24

Let s consider there are n number of bells and all starts at a particular time(say 12PM) and the interval is 1 min. , 2 min. and  . . . . . n minutes

Then all 'll ring at a time which is the LCM of (1, 2 , 3. . . . n)

and that time gap should be less than (3600 x 24 )/18 = 4800

LCM of (1, 2, 3. . . . n) ≤ 4800

=> n = 10

A diamond expert cuts a huge

A diamond expert cuts a huge cubical diamond into 960 identical diamond pieces in minimum no. of 'n' cuts

There are many ways in cutting a cubical diamond into 960 identical pieces ( 2 x 48 x 10 , 6 x 10 x 16 . . . .etc)

But for minimum number of cuts it should be done as

960 =  12 x 8 x 10 (pieces)

To get N pieces we make N-1 cuts

so number of cuts in above case : 11 x 7 x  9  i. e 27 cuts altogether

Now to get maximum number of diamonds out of 27 cuts we have to  make 9 cuts in all length , breadth and width wise.

So total number of pieces = 10 x 10 x 10 = 1000

Because in the question

A diamond expert cuts a huge cubical diamond into 960 identical diamond pieces in minimum no. of 'n' cuts

Number of cuts is mentioned as minimum and that happens for 960 =  12 x 8 x 10 (pieces)....

I think the maximum value

I think the maximum value (product) of a number 3X = X3   when X is not equal to 1

For example for 3X = 6 =  1 + 2 + 3 product 6

                                         = 2 + 2 + 2  product 8

for 3X = 9 = 1 + 2 + 6 product 12

                 = 1 + 3 + 5 product 15

                = 1 + 4 + 4 product 16

                = 2 + 3 + 4 product 24

                = 3 + 3 + 3 product 27

And mark the product increases when move towards X (3 here)

Hope it clears everything

I would love to explain if you can tell me where exactly you are facing the problem

Please read the question and all the comments once again and let me know where is the difficulty.

Some times reading twice/thrice helps us in understaning things clearly.
