What is the remainder when 2050 x 2071 x 2095 is divided by 23?

 A. 17 B. 12 C. 6 D. 3 Answer Report Discuss Option: C Explanation : 2050 x 2071 x 2095 =(23x89+3)x(23x90+1)x(23x91+2) =(23[89 x 90+ 89 + 90 x 3]+ 3)x(23 x 91+2) =(23 *K+ 3)* (23 * 91 + 2) ) =(23 *[K* 91 + K*  2 + 91 * 3]+ 6) = 23 * L + 6 (where K and L are constants). Hence remainder is 6. Click on Discuss to view users comments.

HCF of y3 - 4y and 4y (y3 + 8) is

 A. y(y + 2) B. y - 2 C. 2 (y + 2) D. (y + 2)(y2- 2y + 4) Answer Report Discuss Option: A Explanation : y3-4y = y(y2-4) = y(y-2)(y+2) 4y(y3+8) =4y(y+2)(y2-2y+4) ∴ HCF = y(y + 2). Click on Discuss to view users comments. Write your comments here:
