# Some problems to solve watch

1. 1. How many factors, which themselves are factors of 3, does the number 241920 have? (not including 3 itself)

2. The difference and product of two consecutive primes are added together. Is the number produced a prime itself?

3. Evaluate the series 3 + 7 + 11 + ... + 201 + 205.

4. Find the value of (6! + 5!)/5!

5. Simplify: [(n+1)!/(n-1)!]!

1. How many factors, which themselves are factors of 3, does the number 241920 have? (not including 3 itself)
Only factors of 3 are 1 and 3, so there's only 1 factor of 241920 that is also factor of 3 (except for 3 itself) and that's 1!!! (Do you mean multiples of 3??)

2. The difference and product of two consecutive primes are added together. Is the number produced a prime itself?
7 and 11 are 2 consecutive primes, product 77, difference 4, sum of these 2 is 81 = 9*9 so no

4. 6 + 1 = 7

5. [(n+1)n]!

2. The difference and product of two consecutive primes are added together. Is the number produced a prime itself?
7 and 11 are two consecutive primes.
Difference=4
11*7=77
77+4=81 which is not prime (facors 9, 3 etc)

(Darn!-Bezza got there before me....sorry didn't see you there!)

For q. 2, it can be, but isn't neccessarily, namely 5, 3 satisfy it, but 7,11 does not.

I don't see the pattern in questions 3. Were it an AP with common difference d, then neither 201 or 205 would be terms in the series as each term must satisfy 4n-1.

4. Find the value of (6! + 5!)/5!

5. Simplify: [(n+1)!/(n-1)!]!
first term 3, common difference 4, using formula for arithmetic progression we get:

5253 for n=51

4. Find the value of (6! + 5!)/5!

(1x2x3x4x5x6)+(1x2x3x4x5)/(1x2x3x4x5)

(1x2x3x4x5)(1+6)/(1x2x3x4x5)

7

5. Simplify: [(n+1)!/(n-1)!]!

[n!(n+1)/(n-1)!]!

[(n-1)!(n(n+1))/(n-1)!]!

[n(n+1)]!

Excuse me im at work developing a website for london met university...and its lunch time so i just thought i would do wonder around UKL!
12. 2. The difference and product of two consecutive numbers which are prime are added together. Is the number produced a prime itself?

3. Evaluate the series 3 + 7 + 11 + ... + 199 + 203.
Corrected problems (sorry!)

I think people who who write posts in text gibberish, trying to mock people who enjoy doing maths problems, are the real sad ones!

no - it's worse than crap it's spam
