Dear Reader,

Below are four problems on numbers dealing with the arithmetic calculations.

**Question 1**

Which of the following expression is equal to 13786?

a) 8459 + 4617 + 2714 - (713x9)

b) 8594 + 4167 + 2417 - (731x8)

c) 8495 + 4716 + 2714 - (713x3)

d) 8549 + 4761 + 2147 - (713x8)

**Answer : **c) 8495 + 4716 + 2714 - (713x3).

Solution:

From option a,

Given, 8459 + 4617 + 2714 - (713x9) = 15790 - 6417 = 9373 which is not equal to 13786.

From option b,

Given, 8594 + 4167 + 2417 - (731x8) = 15178 - 5848 = 9330 which is not equal to 13786.

From option c,

Given, 8495 + 4716 + 2714 - (713x3) = 15925 - 2139 = 13786 which is equal to the given value.

Hence the answer is option c.

**Question 2**

Which of the following is equal to 3002?

a) -48 x 39 + 5016

b) -41 x 29 + 5084

c) -40 x 19 + 5853

d) none of these.

**Answer : **d )none of these.

Solution:

From option a,

Given, -48 x 39 + 5016 = -48(40-1) + 5016 = -1920 + 48 + 5016 = 3144 which is not equal to 3002.

from option b,

Given, -41 x 29 + 5084 = -41(30-1) + 5084 = -1230 + 41 + 5084 = 3895 which is not equal to 3002.

From option c,

Given, -40 x 19 + 5853 = -40(20-1) + 5853 = -800 + 40 + 5853 = 5093 which is not equal to 3002.

Therefore, none of the given options is equal to 3002.

Hence the answer is option d.

**Question 3**
