whats d remainder of
1) (1421*1423*1423) / 12 .
2)26^(279)/27
3)26^(387)-1/27
(in Q2n3 279 n 387 r d pwr of 26)

plz tel m d short cut 4 remaindr in such types of q .

Anonymous said...

(1421*1423*1423)/12 => R(1421/12)*R(1423/12)*R(1423*12)=> R(5*7*7)/12=> 7*7*5=245 =>R(245/12)=> 5. Hence 5 is the answer.

26^279/27 => i) R(26/27)=> -1 (Negative reminder concept). and 26^279/27=> (-1)^279/27=>-1/27 => -1 => hence R=26.

Dude, no non-verbal reasoning is being asked in the current exams. Being online exam, it becomes difficult to make patterns. So don't prepare for the non-verbal.

Combine— 7 13
Then

1/13 2/91

Ans= 1/13=2/91 => 7/2

(9/13 – 8/13 = 1/13)
(5/7 – 9/13 = 2/91)

The drastic PHAILIN has affected Odisha severely and severe flood thereafter, so people are not even able to escape from the flood as it surrounded them. How the candidates will be able to cast their IBPS PO-III exam in the 19th and 20th of October.
So very kindly requested to IBPS to reschedule the first two dates.
