Question

Ram takes  512 minutes to reach office, whereas Raghu takes 323 minutes. What is the difference in time taken by the two?
  1. 53
  2. 113
  3. 116
  4. 52


Solution

The correct option is C 116
Let us first convert the mixed fractions 323 and 512 into improper fractions.

323=(3×3)+23=113

and 512=(5×2)+12=112

Now, difference in time taken by Ram and Raghu to reach office is given by 512323. 

Now, 512323=112113 
                       
=11×32×311×23×2

=336226
                       
=(3322)6=116 

Thus, the difference in time taken by Ram and Raghu to reach office is 116 minutes.
