Solutions
Sol: (1 -5): he area of each rooms of one of the flat on the even number floor is 120ft. So total number of rooms will be 11 rooms in the either Flat A or Flat B of floor 2. From these conditions we have two possible cases. The area of each room in the flat which is exactly above 11 rooms flat is 220 ft. So number of rooms above the flat which has 11 rooms will be 6 rooms.
The flat which has each room’s area is 132ft is on odd number floor. There is only one floor between the flat who’s each room area is 264 ft and the flat whose each room’s area is 132ft. Total number of rooms on 1st floor is fourteen. By these conditions one case added in case- 1 and one case added in case- 2. So new arrangement will be-
There is no flat on the east of the flat having 8 rooms. By this condition case- 2 and case- 2a are cancelled. Total number of rooms in the building is not more than 45 rooms. By this condition case- 1a is cancelled. So final arrangement will be-
