III) Go through the numbers mentioned below and choose the following

657 994 234 647 283

Question 1: Arrange all the figures of each number mentioned above in an ascending series. Then which newly formed number will be the highest?

1. 657
2. 994
3. 234
4. 647
5. 283

Solution: If all the figures of each number mentioned above are arranged in an ascending series, then the newly formed numbers are:

657 – 567

994 – 499

647 – 467

283 – 238

Since the highest newly formed number is 567. Therefore, 657 is the answer

1. 283
2. 994
3. 234
4. 657
5. 647

Solution: If the 1st and last figures of each number mentioned above are interchanged, the newly formed numbers will be:

283 – 382

994 – 499

234 – 432

657 – 756

647 – 746

Since the smallest newly formed number is 382, 283 is the answer.

Question 3: What will be the most significant number if all the figures in each number are multiplied?

1. 283
2. 994
3. 234
4. 657
5. 647

Solution:

283 = 2 x 8 x 3 = 48

994 = 9 x 9 x 4 = 324

234 = 2 x 3 x 4 = 24

657 = 6 x 5 x 7 = 210

647 = 6 x 4 x 7 = 168
