50mph = 30 mpg

12 gallon tank = 12x30 = full tank will give you 360
50mph x 5hrs = 250

250/360=25/36

should be E

A. -7

2X^2- 7X +3

so we know b would be -7
Should b be (7)? 2X^2-(7)X+3

question like this I just test it with simple number.

I used 5x5=25 and matched it with 5(1.1)x5(.9)=(5.5)x(4.5)=24.75

(25-24.75)/24.75 is around 1%. I assumed the answer is D

Thanks alot. I am working on the essays and letter of recommendations now.


Where do you live at and where do you plan to get your MBA?

My client/friend got into UCI with a score of 660, and she said she got accepted to USC also(but couldn't afford the tuition.) If you got time and the extra $250, you can always study more and retake your GMAT again.
