Re: A total of 30 percent of the geese included

Hi All, We're told that 30 percent of a group of geese were male and that SOME of the geese migrated during the study (with 20 percent of that subgroup of migrating geese being male). We're asked for the RATIO of the migration rate for the MALE geese to the migration rate for the FEMALE geese. This ...

Hi All, We're told that a magician has 5 animals in his magic hat: 3 doves and 2 rabbits. We're asked - if he pulls two animals out of the hat at random, what is the chance that he will have a matched pair. The 'math' behind this question isn't too difficult, but you have to consider 2 outcomes to p...


Re: k = 2^n + 7, where n is an integer greater than 1. If k is divisible by 9,

Hi All, We're told that K = (2^N) + 7, where N is an integer greater than 1 AND K is divisible by 9. We're asked which of the following MUST be divisible by 9? This is a great 'concept question', meaning that you don't actually have to do much math to answer this question if you recognize the concep...


Re: If x is an even integer, which of the following is an odd integer?

Hi All, We're told that X is an EVEN integer. We're asked which of the following is an ODD integer? This question can be solved with Number Properties or TESTing VALUES. IF... X = 2, then the answer become.... (A) 3x + 2 = 3(2) + 2 = 6+2 = 8 NOT Odd (B) 7x = 7(2) = 14 NOT Odd (C) 8x +5 = 8(2) + 5 = ...


Re: Working alone, Printers X, Y, and Z can do a certain printing job,

Hi Ankitaverma, This question is perfect for the "work formula." While there are 3 machines, only 2 of them are actually working together. Work Formula = (AxB)/(A+B) X = 12 hours to do a job Y = 15 hours to do a job Z = 18 hours to do a job Together, Y and Z takes.... (15x18)/(15+18) hours to do the...


Re: If Albert can travel 200 miles in 4 hours, how many hours will it take Albert

Hi All, We're told that Albert can travel 200 miles in 4 hours. We're asked how many hours it will take Albert, traveling at the same constant rate, to travel 350 miles? The math behind this question can be approached in a number of different ways, including as a rate or as a ratio. At a rate of 200...


Re: Job Scope after Master in Corporate Finance from Henley Business School

Hi Akshat2000, You're asking a rather specific question, so you're not likely to randomly come across someone who can answer it. That having been said, many Schools keep in touch with their Alums (to learn more about how those people used their degrees, where they currently work, their annual pay, e...


Re: MATH

Hi namokshi, From your post, I'm going to assume that the equation that you included is meant to be: Z = 1 + (1/X) and X > 1 As X increases, the value of (1/X) decreases - so we'll be adding a potentially small fraction to 1. We can actually TEST THE ANSWERS here - and use the answer choices to our ...

Re: Before Tutoring With Veritas i got V30 after i got V21 !!

Hi adam1212, I'm sorry to hear that Test Day didn't go as well as planned. There are a variety of factors that could have impacted your performance on your most recent Official GMAT, but before we discuss any of those potential issues, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how...


Re: From 500 to 690

Hi ariellelouise, Statistically-speaking, raising a 560 to the point that you can consistently score 650+ will likely require at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study (and if your ultimate Score Goal is a 690+, then that would likely take at least another 3 months) - and you'll have to ...

Re: Application to Top B-Schools

Hi Arjun25, To start, you're ultimately asking Admissions questions, so you would likely find it useful to reach out directly to some Admissions Experts. From your post history, you appear to have already done that - which is good. In the rest of your post, you refer to a projected GPA and a GMAT Sc...

Re: First GMAT Mock and future plans

Hi anuragkumar08, To start, the scoring algorithm on the Official GMAT is far more complicated than most people realize. Since that algorithm is proprietary, no GMAT company has an exact match for it, thus CAT scores can vary a bit based on the 'biases' involved in their respective designs. The most...

Re: Working with Manhattan GMAT 5th Ed & OG 2020

Hi camaramarga, This sounds like a question that is probably best answered by MGMAT, so if you still using these materials (and you have not found a solution to this issue yet), then you might want to contact that company's Customer Support Team and ask. Before I can offer you any additional advice ...

Re: Princeton Review GMAT 700+ Course, Any thoughts?

Hi tennis202, To start, a 620 is a great initial CAT score (the average score on the Official GMAT hovers around 550 most years). The time it might take you to get to the point that you can consistently score 700+ will depend a great deal on your current skills, strengths and weaknesses - so before ...

Hi AAPL, We're told that Luke drives the first 300 miles of a trip at 60 miles an hour. We're asked how fast he has to drive, in miles per hour, on the final 200 miles of the trip if the total time of the trip is to equal 7 hours. This is an example of a multi-step rate question - and as long as you...
