The thing to note is that in both the case the girls are occupying the same number of chairs. So the difference in the number of chairs being occupied is due to the changed seating pattern of the boys. So let us consider that there are X+1 number of boys, in the first situation the boys are occupyin...

The only thing you need to do for probability questions on GMAT is learn the basic definition of probability and practice different types of probability problems. The internet is obviously the best place to find lots of probability problems.

Can someone tell me what I might be doing wrong here? 5 numbers can be formed by using 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 = that makes it 120 possible combinations of 5 digit numbers. Then I took the average of the smallest num...

Thanks a lot Sanju !!.

I did get the answer. I had not read the question properly initially and missed the fact that the question is talking about consecutive integers. Anyway good question, thanks for sharing.

Cheers.

Actually just read the question again. It is pretty simple. The only thing to note is that for a set of consecutive integers the median is same as the mean. Use this and the solution is pretty simple.

Re: what fraction of c

This is an interesting question & I am sure if such a question comes I will panic in the real exam :? watching the clock ticking. Anyway, here's how I would approach the problem when I am sane & calm. Lets give some numbers to a, b & c. a=1 b=16 (I chose 16 for easy computation with the fraction) c...

This is a weird question... here's my take Statement 1: No info on Betty. Insufficient. Statement 2: No info on Cindy's relationship to Bill? Insufficient. Both statements together: We know Bill's relation to Cindy (from Stmt 1) and we know Cindy's relationship to Betty(statement 2). Hence the ques...

Here's the answer: (1) SUFFICIENT: We can rewrite this equation in a base of 3: 3b + 2 = 34, which means that b + 2 = 4 and therefore b = 2. We can plug this value into the equation a = 3b – 1 to solve for a. (2) SUFFICIENT: We can set the right side of this equation equal to the right side of the ...
