Question 1

If $4^{m + n} = 16384$, and $4^{m - n} = 256$, then what is m?

 A

5.5.

 B

6.0.

 C

7.0.

 D

8.0.

Soln.
Ans: a

By inspection, both the expressions can be simplified to $4^{m + n} = 4^7$ and $4^{m - n} = 4^4$. The bases are same, so powers should be same as well. So these expressions lead us to two simultaneous equations $m + n = 7$ and $m - n = 4$. Solving, we get $m = {7 + 4}/2$ = 5.5. Note: The trick in such type of questions is to keep an eye on the "bases".


Question 2

What is $({11/26})^0.03 × ({11/26})^x = ({11/26})^0.14$?

 A

0.11.

 B

0.61.

 C

1.61.

 D

2.11.

Soln.
Ans: a

We can simplify the given expression to $({11/26})^{0.03 + x} = ({11/26})^0.14$. The bases are equal, so the powers should also be equal. Hence $0.03 + x = 0.14$ which gives x = 0.11.


Question 3

If $√7744 = 88$, then what is the value of $√77.44$ + $√0.7744$ + $√0.007744$ + $√0.00007744$?

 A

9.7768.

 B

10.2768.

 C

11.2768.

 D

10.7768.

Soln.
Ans: a

We can see that $√77.44$ = 8.8, $√0.7744$ = 0.88, $√0.007744$ = 0.088, $√0.00007744$ = 0.0088. Adding, we get 9.7768 as the answer.


Question 4

What is $({16/7})^2.9 × ({16/7})^x = ({16/7})^1.6$?

 A

-1.3.

 B

-0.8.

 C

0.2.

 D

0.7.

Soln.
Ans: a

We can simplify the given expression to $({16/7})^{2.9 + x} = ({16/7})^1.6$. The bases are equal, so the powers should also be equal. Hence $2.9 + x = 1.6$ which gives x = -1.3.


Question 5

If $√4761 = 69$, then what is the value of $√47.61$ + $√0.4761$ + $√0.004761$ + $√0.00004761$?

 A

7.6659.

 B

8.1659.

 C

9.1659.

 D

8.6659.

Soln.
Ans: a

We can see that $√47.61$ = 6.9, $√0.4761$ = 0.69, $√0.004761$ = 0.069, $√0.00004761$ = 0.0069. Adding, we get 7.6659 as the answer.
