##### Re: Sentence Correction(700 level)

two actions are there on these questions.

first, the initial belief that wealth was less

and second that the belief was wrong

hence answer is E.

Remember, any value in decimal, when the power is applied its absolute value decreases. for 0.5 > 0.5^2. here, because of the negative sign, it gives the question another twist! now a positive sign will always be greater than negative !! negative to the power even nos will be positive right! so here...

#### If Steve’s original salary is increased by 5 percent and then, 3 months later, his salary is increased again by 20 perce

###### Problem Solving

##### Re: If Steve’s original salary is increased by 5 percent and then, 3 months later, his salary is increased again by 20 p

Remember this formula for successive percentage calculation.

for eg

first, the percentage increase is x% and then further increase is y%,

then the overall increase will be calculated as :

x + y + x*y/100.

here x is 5, y is 20.

ans: 5 + 20 + (5*20)/100

hence 5 + 20 + 1

ans is 26.

##### Re: In the multiplication above, \(\#\) represents a single digit. What digit does \(\#\) represent?

The final number must be of the form 2 XX0 and must be a divisible by 510. since both the nos involved have 0 at the end , lets divide both by 10 and get rid of the extra 0's. thus the no now is 2XX and 51. now lets just add 51, 51,102,153,204,255. bingo ! we get 255 which is of the form 2XX.

###### Problem Solving

##### Re: In the figure above, square \(ABCD\) has an area of \(25.\) What is the area of the circle with center \(O?\)

ABCD is a square with area 25. now let side length be a. hence a^2 = 25 ie a = 5. Now, a= AD = 5. Imagine drawing a line from O to X which is on AD and bisects it in half. Now consider AOX triangle here AX is 5/2 in length, since ABCD is a square , hence angle OAD will be 45 degrees. Now OA cos 45 =...
