I know that it may sound silly, but I am happy that I have completed my essays for the schools I am applying to. The essays looked daunting at first glance, but after spending considerable time in thinking about how I want to approach each question, gradually I was able to produce content. Talking t...

To crack this problem, since the point denominations are in 2 and 5, the LCM is 10. Hence the 2's will be in multiple of 5 and 5's in multiple of 2.
Least difference between n and m will be
8 of 5's - 5 of 2's = 3
If you take the next level it becomes:
6 of 5's - 10 of 2's = 4

how do you get from
"((#R^2)-(#r^2)/(#r^2))=3/1"
to
"=> #R^2=4#r^2"
Solve it like this:
=> (a-b)/b=3/1
=> a-b=3b
=> a=4b

where a=#R^2 and b=#r^2.

On the same question I overlooked the word 'different' and landed up choosing '50'.

Got 640 ; mixed reactions on the score

Wrote my GMAT today and got 640 (Q 47 V31). I have mixed reaction to the score as I had been scoring in the 660 ~690 range in the practise tests. I was expecting a higher score for the Quant since I was able to crack most of the problems except a few for which I wasn't very sure (one of the Geometry...

[quote]Auzbee,

I checked the MGMAT explanation just now, they too say that the answer is E.

However in your first post, you gave the OA as D.

That's why this confusion.

My apologies for being in a haste while replying. Let me correct my previous post on this thread.

Can't seem to find the OA, but it is from one of the MGMAT CATs. The OA should be between C or E.

OA is C. Even I went for E but according to GMAT Prep it is C. If you don't believe it, see the included screenshot :(

I think there is a typo in the option C text.
