464. There are three types of birds A,B & C . A costs 5pounds, B costs 3 Pounds and C costs 1/3 of a pound. find the no. of A,B &C such that u will get 100 birds for 100 pounds. (I think we were suppose to find 3 answers since there were 3 rows in the answer) ans: A=4 B=18 C=78Ans:Here as we need 100 birds of 100 rs,so it is for sure bird A will be minimum.One more thing-- No.of birds of type C will always be in multiple of 3 as the prize is (1/3) and they will be more as compared to other two.So keeping these two things in mind ,let us talk case wise.CASE ISay,No. of A type bird--1 (prize will be rs5)Take the combinations of B anc C.(keeping 'A' as fixed,suppose no. of 'C' and then consider remianing as 'B') A---------------B----------------C 1(5)-----------------------------99(say)------------Not possible(99+1=100,so b will be zero) --------------3(rs9)-------------96(rs32)-----------not possible(32+9+5=46#100) --------------6(rs18)------------93(rs31)-----------not possible(31+18+5=54#100) --------------9(rs27)------------90(rs30)-----------not possible(30+27+5=62#100) --------------12(rs36)-----------87(rs29)----------not possible(29+36+5=60#100)Here if you observe the total prize has decreased from rs 62 to Rs 60...Hence no use going ahead.Likewise try for A=2,3Now Going to A=4 in the same manner ....You can find your answer as A=4,B=18,C=78.Normally companies want only a single answer but if you want to find the remaining answers also ,follow the same procedure.
