The ans is A When 4 is divided by 3 remainder is 1 when 7n is divided by 3 remainder = 2 (this u can find by plugging values of n where n + 1 is divisible by 3. Also since it is given that n is a positive integer and n+1 is divisible by 3 u can rule out the possibility of n being 0) So remainder whe...

I did this by plugging the values

So ,

if u solve the equation in the question stem u get

10 ( x+2y) / (x+y) = k

Now just plug the value of each ans choice instead of K

you will see that the only solution where x<y and both are positive is with 18 as the ans.

Is there a better way to do this?

I would go with 1 & 3 (last choice) If n = 1, K = 1, so no of factors is 1, which is odd if n = 2, K = 4, so no of factors = 3, which is both odd and a prime number. However if K is a square of n, it cannot have even numbers. Here is my thinking. say k = x^2y^2 no of factors = (2+1) (2+1) both are o...

Assume total amount of hospital expenses last year = x
so total amount paid = 0.8x
which is also = 408 + 0.2x

so solve for 408 + 0.2x = 0.8x

How is B sufficient

If u have 3 men in the group u will have 7 women.

So P(both women) = 7/10 * 6/9 = 7/15 which is less than half.

Pls explain

The ans should be C

The lowest values for which a = 2b and a + b > 0 are

b = 0.4 and a = 0.8.

if u put these values or any values greter than then in all cases u will find ab/a+b is less than ab

pls confirm

ans should be C

both X&Y have the same sign, and X&Z have the same sign. If X is negative even Y and Z are negative. If all 3 are negative then XYZ<0>0

so all three have to be positive

my ans was C

SP = P + Purchase Price (PP)

Combined we have

SP = X
Profit = 50 = 0.2X

So SP = 250

ans should be A

Mean = Sum / No of terms.

Since the sum is the same for both the sets and the avg of one is less than the other. The one with the lower avg will have greater terms.

Thanks so much for ur immediate reply. Another question if u dont mind.

I got how u narrowed it down to n = any prime number greater than 3

but how did u figure out that the sq of a prime number - 1 is a multiple of 24 and so r = 0?

is there a rule or some thing,

thanks again
