HOW TO SOLVE TECHNICAL POST UTME QUESTIONS

For PostUtme candidates, I think this will help you.
If you are in possession of a book which contains past
Post Ume questions, then you must have come across
some sort of Maths questions which seem too strange
and time-consuming. Do not feel disgruntled. There are
easy ways to walk your way through these. Let me give
you an example:
If today is Tuesday, what day would it be in the next 50
days?. …… Here is the solution:
First, you need to know that if you keep adding 7 days to
that Tuesday, you will keep getting Tuesday. For example,
today is Thursday, 7 days from now would be Thursday,
14 days from now would still be Thursday, and so on. No
matter what, adding 7 days would keep giving you
Thursday. OKAY? Same goes with Tuesday and any other
day.
So, if you are given this sort of question above: “If today
is Tuesday, What day would it be in the next 50 days?”.
Just divide 50 by 7 and add the remainder to Tuesday. It
would be like this:
50/7 = 7 Remainder 1.
The remainder 1 means you should count one day from
Tuesday. Hence, the answer would be a WEDNESDAY.
You see? Not that hard. There are easy ways to calculate
all these sort of questions without wasting your time. WISHING
YOU GOODLUCK!!!
