Re: For all real numbers v, the operation is defined by the equation v* = v - v/3. If (v*)* = 8, then v=

GMAT Paper Tests For all real numbers v, the operation is defined by the equation v* = v - v/3. If (v*)* = 8, then v= A. 15 B. 18 C. 21 D. 24 E. 27 OA B Solution: We can let w = v*; thus, we have (v*)* = w* = 8. That is, w - w/3 = 8 2w/3 = 8 w = 8 x 3/2 = 12 Now, we have v* = 12, or: v - v/3 = 12 2...
