A steel bar 135 inches long will be cut into a number of 5-inch and 7-inch segments, with no part of the original steel bar left over.
Quantity A |
Quantity B |
The minimum possible number of 5-inch pieces |
5 |
A) Quantity A is greater.
B) Quantity B is greater.
C) The two quantities are equal.
D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
If we can divide 135 by 5 and 7 and the result sum up to 135
1. when 7*0 then 5*27 i.e 0+135 =135
2. when 7*5 then 5*20 i.e 35+100 = 135
3. when 7*10 then 5*13 i.e 70+65 =135
4. when 7*15 then 5*6 i.e 105+30 =135
No other possible option available so QTY A is 6, which is > QTY B
