I think C


training class - T
responding to E-mails - R,
and talking on the phone - P
Total 240 min

(1)
training class - T........................0,9x
responding to E-mails - R............x
and talking on the phone - P........240-1,9x
Total 240 min
P=?
INSUFF

(2)
training class - T........................
responding to E-mails - R............
and talking on the phone - P........
Total 240 min

T=0,6(E+P)
E+P=y
0,6(E+P) + E+P= 0,6y+y=240
1,6y=240
y=150, T=90
P=?
INSUFF

(1)(2)
240-0,9x=150
x=100
1,9x=190
P=50
SUFF

C

OA?

(1) k is a multiple of 3.
(2) m is a multiple of 3.
"+ = " what does this mean.

Something is missing for sure.


Yesterday Diana spent a total of 240 minutes attending a training class, responding to E-mails, 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 E-mails.
(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 E-mails and talking on the phone.

total minutes = 240
class, e-mails, 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.

If the cards are drawn at random and if the sum of the numbers on the cards is 8, what is the probability that one of the two cards drawn is numbered 5 ?

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?

Morgoth,
sum of 8

6+2
2+6

I think because we cannot distinguish 2 different cases between 4+4 and 4+4. They are the same, thats why there should be 5 different outcomes with 2 desirable outcomes.

A. 1/6
B. 1/5
C. 1/3
D. 2/5
E. 2/3
Ans is 2/5
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

A. 1/6

E. 2/3


Ans is 2/5
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?
