#### Remainder

###### Problem Solving

What is the remainder when 43^43+ 33^33 is divided by 10? 1 3 9 7 0 OA: E we know 43/10 = R(3), similarly 43^4 /10 =R(1) hence 43^40/10 = R (1) therefore 43^43/10 = R(7) similarly 33/10 = R(3), similarly 33^4/10 = R(1) hence 33^32/10 = R(1) therefore 33^33/10 = R(3) so, 43^43 + 33^33 / 10 => R(7) +...

If x!=-y, is [x-y]/[x+y] > 1  x > 0  y < 0 Note: is it x!= -y? i am afraid, i consider it as x = -y. From stat1: x > 0; As x + y = 0, then y must be < 0. so, say x = 0.4, y = -0.4 then [ x - y ] = 0. and [ x + y] = 0 therefore, 0/0 which is an indeterminate form! say if x = 2 and y = -2, [x -...

#### DS - Triangle property- Need help

###### Data Sufficiency

Is triangle ABC isoceles? 1. Angle B = 60 degrees 2. Angle C = 60 [spoiler]I think Answer is D.If one angle is 60 sum of remaining 2 angles is 120. Let's say second angle is also 60 so third will also be 60 making it Equilateral. It is not Isosceles. If 2nd is more than 60 third will be less than 6...

###### Problem Solving

But in the above problem it's 2^-2 i.e. 8xyÂ³ + 8xÂ³y = (2xÂ²yÂ²)/2^-Â² Ah! Fixed that! But still, though, any comments on the question: (xy)(y - x)Â² = 0. How do we know which should be be subtracted from which? In this particular case, it works out to be the same, because the result is squared. H...

#### MGMAT Adv Quant - WS#5, Question 50 -- (x-y)Â² vs (y-x)Â²

###### Problem Solving

In the second line of your calculation you've arrived at the below equation 2Â³xyÂ³ + 2Â³xÂ³y = 2^4 * xÂ² * yÂ² . Shouldn't the R.H.S be 2^3*x^2*y^2? Hello SL750, I think that it should be 2^4: Right Hand Side (2^1 * xÂ² * yÂ²) / (2^-3) =(2^1 * xÂ² * yÂ²) / (1 / 2^3) =(2^1 * xÂ² * yÂ²) * 2^3 =2^1*2...

H(n) = 2*4*6*8.....n ( all are even integers) lets take example: H(8)+1 = 2.4.6.8 +1 = 2^6(1*2*3)+1 = 385 ; so, least prime factor H(8)+1 is 5 (i.e 5*7*11) similarly..H(10)+1 = 2*4*6*8*10 +1 = 2^7*(1*2*3*5)+1= 3841; so, least prime factor of H(10)+1 is 23 (i.e. 23*167) now...

1) a*c=b

for a = -1 and c = 1/2 will satisfy! a+c = a*c
so, numbers -1/2,-1,1/2 then median: -1
also a = 0, b = 0, c = 0, median = 0

Clearly,not sufficient.

Hence E!
