##### Help needed in improving verbal score quickly

Hi, I have my GMAT in 20 days. I prepared for 2 months, and have finished all the questions from OG books. I took my first official mock today, and I got a horrible score of 590. And the biggest worrying thing was that it was Q51 V19. I have solved all the SC and CR questions from the OG. And I was ...

Thanks Jay for sharing this. I can figure out that KO = 8, MO = 4 and NO = 6. Similarly, KN = 10.

Let's assume the traffic from R to S is x and traffic from S to P is y. Now, we know the inward traffic at P is 1200. So, 1200 = 800 + y y = 400. At any point, inward traffic will be equal to the outward traffic. So, using that approach at S, we get the following equation Inward traffic at S = Outwa...

We are given that w = 2 when v = 1. So, \(2 = \frac{p}{\sqrt[t]{1}}\) Since \(\sqrt[t]{1}\) is always going to be 1, we now know the value of p as 2. Now, if w = 1/2 when v = 64 \(\frac{1}{2} = \frac{2}{\sqrt[t]{64}}\) This gives us values of$$\frac{1}{\sqrt[t]{64}} = \frac{1}{4}$$ . So, we know tha...

There are 4 different candles and she has to choose 2 out of them.

So, total combinations = $$_4C_2$$ = 6

Similarly, she has to choose 8 out of 9 flowers.

So, total combinations = $$_9C_8$$ = 9

Finally, the total grouping for candle + flower will be 9 * 6 = 54

Typically, I take some simple numbers to work on the percentage problems: let's say cost c = 100 the selling price will be = 100 + 40% of 100 = 140 After a 20% discount, the selling price will be = 140 - (20% of 140) = 140 - 28 = 112 So, the new selling price of 112 is 12% more than the cost price o...

Instead of writing the equations, I find the following approach to be time-saving: We know that if we exchange the hundred and the unit digit, the new number is 99 less than the original. With this info, let us try the options: A. 944 New number: 449 944-449 > 99 B. 449 New number: 944 449-944 < 99 ...

##### Editing the answer

I took simple numbers to work on this one: AB = 90, AD = 110 => Area of rectangle = 9900 After increasing AB by 10% and decreasing AD by 10%, AB` = 99, AD` = 99 => Area of a square = 9801 So the area reduced by 10%. Sorry, I made a small mistake in the above example. In this scenario, the area has ...

Let's call the length of the bigger rectangle L, the width of the bigger rectangle W And the length of one of the smaller rectangle l, the width of one of the smaller rectangle w. AD = BC => w + w + w = l + l + l + l => 3w = 4l => w = 4l/3 Similarly AB = CD = l + w = l + 4l/3 => 7l/3 Area of the big...

The important thing is to observe the cycle of the unit digits with 2:

$$2^1 = 2$$

$$2^2 = 4$$

$$2^3 = 8$$

$$2^4 = 16$$

$$2^5 = 32$$

$$2^6 = 64$$

$$2^7 = 128$$

So there is a cycle for unit digits of 2,4, 8 and 6.

In this case, 16*4 = 64, so the unit digit for $$2^{67}$$ will be same $$2^3$$

Here, the shortest path will have a length of 5. And in every solution, one needs to go UP 3 times and RIGHT 2 times.

One of the solutions will be: UUURR

Total paths will be:

$$\frac{5!}{3!\cdot2!}$$ = 10.

This is because U is repeated 3 times and R is repeated 2 times.

First I will convert the unit from mm to inches =>

$$\left(\frac{21}{16}\times\ 25.4\ =\ 33.3\right)$$

So the answer has to be more than 33, and the only option which satisfies this choice is E. $$$$

There are 3 different positive integers. If their average (the arithmetic mean) is 8, what are their values?

1) The largest integer is twice the smallest integer.
