    Answer:-( 0! + 0! + 0! + 0! + 0! )! = 120

    pooof:- As you know that 0! = 1 so,
    = ( 0! + 0! + 0! + 0! + 0! )!
    = ( 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 )!
    = (5 )!
    = 120

    Question 4 : There are 9 coins. 8 are of 1 gm and 1 is of 2 grams. How will you find out the heavier coin in minimum number of weighing and how many weighing it will need?

    It requires two weighing.

    First, Group the coins as three groups with three coins in each group. Let us say GroupA, GroupB and GroupC.

    Weighing1:- Weigh GroupA and GroupB, if any one from this group is weigh more then select that group (either GroupA or GroupB) to the next step (Weighing2) otherwise if both are equal then select GroupC to the next step (Weighing2).

    Weigning2: Split the coins from the resulted group from Weighing1. Now let us say coins are named as P, Q, R. Weigh P and Q, if anyone is more then that is resulted heavier coin (either P or Q) otherwise if both are equal then R is the heavier coin.

      • Adi

        divide 9 into 3 groups of 3 coins each.
        1st weight first two groups against each other,

        if a group weighs more,than defectd coin is in tht group. So select tht grp //1st if

        tag :
        weigh 2 coins from tht grp ,
        if one weighs more //2nd if

        thn thats d defective 1

        else //2nd’s else part

        the one coin left out f d 3 ,is d defective 1

        else //1st’s else part

        this means d 1st 2 grps weigh d same ,so defective coin lies in 3 rd group

        goto tag; //follow same procedure

        HENCE TOTAL 3 WEIGH’s ARE REQUIRED
