"+ = " what does this mean.vivek.kapoor83 wrote:If k, m, and t are positive integers and + = , do t and 12 have a common factor greater than 1 ?
(1) k is a multiple of 3.
(2) m is a multiple of 3.
Something is missing for sure.
Yesterday Diana spent a total of 240 minutes attending a training class, responding to Emails, and talking on the phone. If she did no two of these three activities at the same time, how much time did she spend talking on the phone?
(1) Yesterday the amount of time that Diana spent attending the training class was 90 percent of the amount of time that she spent responding to Emails.
(2) Yesterday the amount of time that Diana spent attending the training class was 60 percent of the total amount of time that she spent responding to Emails and talking on the phone.
total minutes = 240
class, emails, phone
phone=?
Statement (1)
C = .90 E
Insufficient.
Statement (2)
C = .60(E+P)
Insufficient.
Combining (1) & (2)
We solve P, Since we know C+E+P = 240
3 equations, 3 variables.
Thus, C.

A. 1/6
B. 1/5
C. 1/3
D. 2/5
E. 2/3
sum of 8
6+2
2+6
4+4
3+5
5+3
total cases = 5
favorable cases = 2
probability = 2/5.
Thus, D.
OAs?

Ans is 2/5vivek.kapoor83 wrote:Six cards numbered from 1 to 6 are placed in an empty bowl. First one card is drawn and then put back into the bowl; then a second card is drawn.

A. 1/6
B. 1/5
C. 1/3
D. 2/5
E. 2/3
total no of possible outcomes = (2,6)(6,2)(3,5)(5,3)(4,4) = 5
total no of favorable outcomes = (3,5)(5,3) = 2
So, 2/5

Why total possible outcomes is 5. Shouldnt it be 6, coz 4,4 is not counted twice. Or should we not count it twice? Since, order doesnt matter, it looks like we need to. Is this reasoning wrong?vivek.kapoor83 wrote:
