Question

# The greatest possible number of points of intersections of 8 straight line and 4 circles is :

- 32
- 64
- 76
- 104

Hint:

### The number point of intersection between two lines can be counted by finding the number of ways in which two lines can be selected out of the lot as two lines can intersect at most one point.

The number point of intersection between two circles can be counted by finding the number of ways in which two circles can be selected out of the lot multiplied by 2 as two circles can intersect at most two points.

## The correct answer is: 104

### Complete step-by-step answer:

The number point of intersection between two circles can be counted by finding the number of ways in which one circle and one line can be selected out of the lot multiplied by 2 as one circle and one line can intersect at most two points.

For selecting r objects from n objects can be done by using the formula as follows

As mentioned in the question, we have to find the total number of intersection points.

For calculating the points of intersection between two lines, we can use the formula which is mentioned in the hint as follows = = 28

For calculating the points of intersection between two circles, we can use the formula which is mentioned in the hint as follows = = 12

For calculating the points of intersection between one line and one circle, we can use the formula which is mentioned in the hint as follows = 64

Hence, the total number of points of intersection is = 28 + 12 + 64 = 104

The students can make an error if they don’t know about the formula for calculating the number of points as mentioned in the hint which is as follows

The number point of intersection between two lines can be counted by finding the number of ways in which two lines can be selected out of the lot as two lines can intersect at most one point.

The number point of intersection between two circles can be counted by finding the number of ways in which two circles can be selected out of the lot multiplied by 2 as two circles can intersect at most two points.

The number point of intersection between two circles can be counted by finding the number of ways in which one circle and one line can be selected out of the lot multiplied by 2 as one circle and one line can intersect at most two points.

### How many different nine digit numbers can be formed from the number 223355888 by rearranging its digits so that the odd digits occupy even position ?

Here we have obtained the total number of 9 digit numbers using the given digits. While finding the number of ways to arrange the odd digits in 5 even places, we have divided the 4! by 2! because the digit 3 were occurring two times and the digit 5 were occurring 2 times. Here we can make a mistake by conserving the number of even digits 4 and the number of odd digits 5, which will result in the wrong answer.

### The sum of all the numbers that can be formed with the digits 2, 3, 4, 5 taken all at a time is (repetition is not allowed) :

Alternatively, we can use the formula for the sum of numbers as

(n - 1)! (sum of digits) (11111 ............ntimes). We can also solve this problem by writing all the possible numbers and finding the sum of them which will be time taking and make us confused. We should know that the value of the digits is determined by the place where they were present. We should check whether there is zero in the given digits and whether there are any repetitions present in the numbers. Similarly, we can expect problems to find the sum of numbers formed by these digits with repetition allowed.

### Total number of divisors of 480, that are of the form 4n + 2, n 0, is equal to :

We can also solve this question by writing 4n + 2 = 2(2n + 1) where 2n + 1 is always an odd number. So, when all odd divisors will be multiplied by 2, we will get the divisors that we require. Hence, we can say a number of divisors of 4n + 2 form is the same as the number of odd divisors for 480.

### The number of different seven digit numbers that can be written using only the three digits 1, 2 and 3 with the condition that the digit 2 occurs twice in each number is-

We know that there is not much difference between permutation and combination. Permutation is the way or method of arranging numbers from a given set of numbers such that the order of arrangement matters. Whereas combination is the way of selecting items from a given set of items where order of selection doesn’t matter. Both the word combination and permutation is the way of arrangement. Here, we will not use permutation because the order of toys is not necessary.
