Consider the following quotients :

1) 368.39 divided by 17

2) 170.50 divided by 62

3) 875.65 divided by 83

Their correct sequence in decreasing order is :

A. 1, 3, 2

B. 2, 1, 3

C. 2, 3, 1

D. 3, 1, 2

**Answer : **A. 1, 3, 2

## Explanation :

- 36839/17 = 2167, Dividend contains 2 places of decimal.

So, 368.39 / 17 = 21.67 - 17050/62 = 275, Dividend contains 2 places of decimal.

So, 70.50/62 = 2.75 - 87565/83 = 1055, Dividend contains 2 places of decimal.

So, 875.65/83 = 10.55

Since 21.67 > 10.55 > 2.75. The desired order is 1, 3, 2.
