A) 65/8

B) 0

C) 32

D) 1

E) None of these

#### Solution :

Q3) If a and b are positive integers such that a^b = 121 then (a-1)^(b + 1) = ?

A)  10

B) 100

C) 1000

D) 10000

#### Solution :

Q4) (256)^0.16 x (256)^0.09 = ?

A) 16

B) 2

C) 64

D) 4

#### Solution :

Q5) If 3^(x - y) = 27 and 3^(x + y) = 243, then x is equal to:

A) 0

B) 2

C) 4

D) 6

#### Solution :

3x - y = 27 = 33 x - y = 3 ....(i)

3x + y = 243 = 35 x + y = 5 ....(ii)

On solving (i) and (ii), we get x = 4.

Q6) The value of (√8)1/3 is:

A) 1

B) 4

C) 2

D) 8

#### Solution :

(√8)1/3 = (81/2)1/3= 81/6 = (23)1/6= 21/2= √2.

Q7)  If √2n =64, then the value of n is:

A) 2

B) 4

C) 6

D) 12

#### Solution :

√2n =64 => 2n/2 = 64= 26

n/2=6; n=12

Q8) If 7^(x - y) = 343 and 7^(x + y) = 16807, what is the value of x?

A) 4

B) 3

C) 2

D) 1

#### Solution :

7^(x - y) = 343 = 7^3

=> x - y = 3 ---------------------------(Equation 1)

7^(x + y) = 16807 = 7^5

=> x + y = 5 ---------------------------(Equation 2)

(Equation 1)+ (Equation 2) => 2x = 3 + 5 = 8

=> x = 8⁄2 = 4

Q9) If 6^m = 46656, What is the value of 6^m-2

A) 36

B) 7776

C) 216

D) 1296

#### Solution :

a^m.a^n=a^m−n

Given that 6m = 46656

6^m−2=6^m/6^2=46656/6^2=46656/36=1296

Q10) (256)^0.16 x (256)^0.09 = ?

A) 4

B) 16

C) 64

D) 256.25

#### Solution :

(256)^0.16 x (256)^0.09 = (256)^(0.16 + 0.09)

= (256)^0.25

= (256)^(25/100)

= (256)^(1/4)

= (44)^(1/4)

= 44^(1/4)

= 4^1

= 4
