#### A device calculates the worth of gem stones based on quality such that a gem with a quality rating of q - 1 is worth 5

##### Re: A device calculates the worth of gem stones based on quality such that a gem with a quality rating of q - 1 is worth

worth of q = q$$_{w}$$
q-1 is 1 less than q and it's worth is 5 x 1 x q$$_{w}$$

p-r is r less than p => its worth is 5xrxp $$_w$$
5r times worth of p

Hence: E

##### Re: Is AD > BC?

Given: Angles, ADC = 90$${^0}$$ ABC = 90$${^0}$$ To find: AD > BC ? 1) CD=AB Therefore, it becomes a rectangle => AD = BC SUFFICIENT 2) Angle, CAB = BCA => Triangle ABC is 45-90-45 => $$AC\ =\sqrt{2}BC\ =\ \sqrt{2}\ AB$$ => AD < $$\sqrt{BC}$$ but can't say AD < BC or not clearly NOT SUFFICIENT Choic...

#### Working at their individual rates, Marcus and Latrell can build a certain brick house in 7.5 and 5 hours, respectively.

##### Re: Working at their individual rates, Marcus and Latrell can build a certain brick house in 7.5 and 5 hours, respective

The ratio of work done by each
Markus : Latrell
= $$\frac{1}{7.5}$$ : $$\frac{1}{5}$$
= 2:3 {Multiply both by 15}

Pay is directly proportional to this ratio so they're paid
2x : 3x
Total = 5x = $35 => x =7 Hence, Markus's Pay = 2x =$14

#### On a scale drawing, a rectangle $$1$$ inch by $$1\frac13$$ inches represents the floor of a room and the indicated scale

##### Re: On a scale drawing, a rectangle $$1$$ inch by $$1\frac13$$ inches represents the floor of a room and the indicated s

As per the given Scale, sides of room are:
15x1=15 feet
15x $$\frac{4}{3}$$ = 20 feet

Area = 300 sq. feet

Area covered by 1 tile = 6 inch. x 6 inch. = 1/2 foot x 1/2 foot = 1/4 sq. feet
No. of tiles covering 1 sq. foot = 4

Total= 300 x 4 = 1,200
