The 
maximum capacity of a container which can measure the petrol of either tank in the exact number of times is ____ litres.


  1. 20
  2. 30
  3. 40
  4. 50


Solution

The correct option is C 40

We need to find the HCF of 200 and 440 to find the maximum capacity of a container which can measure the petrol from either tank.

Factors of 200: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 20, 25, 40, 50, 100, 200
Factors of 440: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 20, 22, 40, 44, 55, 88, 110, 220, 440

Hence, HCF of 200 and 440 is 40.

The maximum capacity of a container is 40 litres.
