Aptitude

Cash difference between the selling prices of an article at a profit of 4% and 6% is Rs 3. the ratio of two selling price is?

  1. 51:52

  2. 51:53

  3. 52:55

  4. 52:53

Ans: 52:53

Let cost price (CP) of the article be X rs.

For 4% profit, SP=CP+4% of CP=1.04X

For 6% profit, SP=CP+6% of CP=1.06X

It is given that cash differences between selling price is Rs 3.

⇒1.06X−1.04X=3

⇒0.02X=3

∴ X=150

i.e. Selling price of first article =1.04X=1.04×150=156 Rs

and Selling price of second article =1.06X=1.06×150=159 Rs

∴ Ratio of selling prices = 159/156 ​ =52:53

Coding Question

Ted is a pro coder, but today he is very busy doing college assignments. He needs your help to complete a task. The task is as follow :

Given two positive integers A and B denoting numerator and denominator of a fraction. You need to count the length of the repeated pattern of digits in the decimal part of A/B.

Input: 22 7
Output: 6

Explanation: 22/7 = 3.142857142857142857.... length of repeating pattern in decimal part is 6 .

Solution:

int findRepeat(int a , int b)
{
unordered_map<int,int>m;
int count=0;
int r=a%b;
while(r!=0 && !m.count(r))
{
m[r]=count;
while(r<b)
{
count++;
m[r]=count;
r=r*10;
}
r=r%b;
}
if(r==0) return 0;
return count-m[r]+1;
}
