Answer (1)
Answer (1)
Answer (1)
Let ‘x’ be the denominator (x 0, 10).
The median will take the least value when all the 7 unknown observations are less than 11. Then, the median (13th observation) is 15.
So, M 15
The median will take the greatest value when all the 7 unknown observations are greater than 17. Then, the median (13th observation) is 17.So M 17
Hence, 15 M 17
Then, the fraction is ^{1}^{0} ^{–} ^{x}
_{x}
, which can be simplified
further if x and 10 – x have common factors which is possible if x = 2, 4, 5, 6, 8
So, there are 5 such fractions possible.

90.
Answer (3)
Consider this
1 ^{2} + 2 ^{2} = 5; 2 ^{2} + 3 ^{2} = 13; 3 ^{2} + 4 ^{2} = 25;
4 ^{2} + 5 ^{2} = 41; 5 ^{2} + 6 ^{2} = 61; 6 ^{2} + 7 ^{2} = 85;
7 ^{2} + 8 ^{2} = 113
So, the only two digit numbers that can be expressed as the sum of the squares of two consecutive natural numbers are 13, 25, 41, 61 and 85 i.e., 5 numbers. The remaining 2 digit numbers (90 – 5 = 85) are the numbers that cannot be expressed as the sum of the squares of two consecutive natural numbers.

Answer (3)
Answer (2)
Let son’s present age be x years.
5 years ago, father's age = 10(x – 5) years
15 years from now, father's age = 2(x + 15) years
Also, 2(x + 15) – 10(x – 5) = 20
x + 15 – 5x + 25 = 10
x = 7
1
2
So, father's present age = 10(x – 5) + 5
= 30 years
= 12k ^{2} + 2
CaseII : If the 3 consecutive natural numbers are 2k, 2k + 1 and 2k + 2, then
N = (2k) ^{2} + (2k + 1) ^{2} + (2k + 2) ^{2}
= 12k ^{2} + 12k + 5
So, if N is divided by 12, then the remainder can be 2 or 5.
