Question

While sorting some candles, John put 2 candles in the first box, 8 candles in the second box, 32 candles in the third box, and 128 candles in the fourth box. If this pattern continues, the number of candles will John put in the fifth box is

  1. 512    
  2. 504    
  3. 500    
  4. 486    

Hint:

In this question, we are given a pattern in which the candles are put in boxes. In the question, number of candles put in a box = 4 x number of candles put in the previous box.

The correct answer is: 512


    Step by step solution:
    Number of candles in the first box = 2
    Number of candles in the second box = 4 x 2 = 8
    Number of candles in the third box = 4 x 8 = 32
    Number of candles in the fourth box = 4 x 32 = 128
    So, number of candles in a box = number of candles in the previous box × 4
    Therefore, Number of candles in the fifth box = number of candles in the fourth box × 4
    = 128 × 4
    = 512
    Hence, option(d) is the correct option.
