**RE: Tech Mahindra aptitude placement paper -vijay (10/01/15)**- plz give explanation
**RE: Tech Mahindra aptitude placement paper -ankit (09/29/15)**- 876, 765, 654, 543, ……. -111 = 432

22, 7, 45, 15,? , 31 alternate

7*2+1=15,15*2+1=31

22*2+1=45,45*2+1=91

x/3=5+(x/6) => x=30

If (a+b):(b+c):(c+a)= 2:3:3 and (a+b+c)= 16, then the value of c is:

take a=x,b=x,c=2x then 2a+2b+2c=2x+3x+3x => 2(16)=8x

=> x=4

=> c=8

A train travelling at rate of 180 kmph crosses a pole in 50 sec. Its length is

8sec = length / 180kmph

length = 8 * 180 *1000 / 3600 = 2500 **RE: Tech Mahindra aptitude placement paper -roopesh (06/13/14)**- 1.c
