Answer / manpreet singh

Answer is 1/5(0.20)
Total rooms=550-101+1=450
Favourable rooms= 1z4(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
1z5(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
1z6(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
2z4(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
2z5(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
2z6(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
3z4(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
3z5(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10
3z6(where z=0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)=10

Answer / guest

There are total 450 rooms.

Out of which 299 room number starts with either 1, 2 or 3.
(as room number 100 is not there) Now out of those 299
rooms only 90 room numbers end with 4, 5 or 6

So the probability is 90/450 i.e. 1/5 or 0.20

A woman took a certain number of eggs to the market and sold some of them. The next day, through the industry of her hens, the number left over had been doubled, and she sold the same number as the previous day. On the third day the new remainder was tripled, and she sold the same number as before. On the fourth day the remainder was quadrupled, and her sales the same as before. On the fifth day what had been left over were quintupled, yet she sold exactly the same as on all the previous occasions and so disposed of her entire stock. What is the smallest number of eggs she could have taken to market the first day, and how many did she sell daily? Note that the answer is not zero.

On the shelf you have 10 identical bottles of identical pills (let?s say there?s a hundred pills in each bottle). However, one of those 10 bottles contains cheap knockoff pills. The only way to differentiate fake pills from real pills is the weight - while real pills weigh 1 g each, the knockoff pills are only 0.9 g. You have one scale that shows the exact weight (down to the mg) of whatever is weighed. How can you tell which bottle contains fake pills with just 1 weighing?
