4)

It tells you that there are 24 total (which I think is rather helpful) so 6 have 4 as the thousands 6 have 3, 2, 1 etc and also 6 have 4 as the ones

so 6*4=24
6*3 =18
6*2=12
6

=60 so the # has to end in 60 only one that does that is E


2)

I used a matrix and got 12.5

But we know that 10% =Speed, Tix
X= Speed, Tix + Speed,~Tix = X = .2X +10
X=12.5

I don't know if that made sense

3)

If D is positive then C must also be positive so I = sufficient

and because of the bounds statement 2 most also be true

but there is nothing stating that C and D can not both be fractions and thus 3 does not have to be sufficient

C

1) I have no idea I hate these questions!

for me the first one is 48x
do you have the OA?
I think this problem is the OG, isn't it? Or there is one very similar.

1. A circular rim 28 inches in diameter rotates the same number of inches/sec as a circular rim 35 inches in diameter. If the smaller rim makes x revolution/sec, how many revolution per min does the larger rim make in terms of x?

a. 48Pi/x
b. 75x
c. 48x
d. 24x
e. x/75


IMO Ans is c 48 x

Explanation

28 rim rotates = x rev/sec = 60x rev/min

So both rims travel the same distance in 1 sec, since 28" is the shorter rim both need to travel 28" in one sec.

So time taken for 35" to travel 28" = 28/35

So revs/ min = 28/35*60x = 48x.

The addition problem above shows four of the 24 different integers that can be fonrmed by using each of the digits 1,2,3,4 exactly ince in each integer , What is the sum of these 24 integers

a. 24,000
b. 26,664
c. 40,440
d. 60,000
e. 66,660
The numbers are :
1234
1243
1324
1342
1423
1432
2134
.
.
.
By having a quick looks we can see that a digit appears Six times at one position, that means 1 will appear only 6 times at 1000's position, 6 times at 100's pos and so on. To summarize this the total can be written as:

1000[6*1+6*2+6*3+6*4]+100[6*1+6*2+6*3+6*4]+10[6*1+6*2+6*3+6*4]+1[6*1+6*2+6*3+6*4]
=>taking the bracket value as common:
60*(1000+100+10+1)=> 1111*60= 66660
Ans- E

b. 75x
c. 48x
d. 24x
e. x/75

Don't give yourself a headache, just set X=1

So the smaller wheel makes 1 revolution/sec. The rate is 28Pi inches per second.

Convert inches/sec to inches/minute
28 inches per sec = 28Pi * 60

To save time you are going to be doing division so let just break 28Pi*60 into factors 28Pi*60 = 7*4*6*5*2*Pi

Then the circumference of the big wheel is 35Pi.
35Pi=5*7*Pi

To find its revolutions we take our distance per minute divided by the circumference.

\frac{7*4*6*5*2*Pi}{7*5*Pi}

You can see that the 7, 5, and Pi cancel.

Leaving use with the answer 4*6*2=48 rpm choice C

a. 10 1/2%
b. 12 1/2%
c. 15%
d. 22%
e. 30%


A=all drivers
S=speeders

So we want to find \frac{(S)}{A}

We know that speeders are either caught or they are not caught, so lets break them into 2 groups

T=ticketed speeders
L=(lucky)speeders without tickets
also T+ L =S

The question states T= .10A
Also stated is L = .2S

Substitute in T+L=S
T+.2S=S
T=.8S <-- this means the ones who are ticketed represent 80% of speeders

.1A = .8S

We want all the speeders or 1S

So multiple both sides by the same number to yield 1S on the left side

\frac{10}{8}\frac{1}{10}A=.8S\frac{10}{8}

\frac{10}{80}A=S
to find percent of A \frac{10}{80}=\frac{x}{100}

x=12.5

12.5%A=S Choice B

3. If d>0 & 0<1-c/d<1 which of the following must be true

I c>0
II c/d<1
III c^2 + d^2 >1

a. I only
b. II only
c. I and II only
d. II and III only
e. I, II and III



Go through them 1 at a time.

I. C>0 must be true
if C<0 then \frac{c}{d} would be negative 1-(negative) will yield a value greater than 1

II. c/d<1 must be true
if c/d>1 then 1-(number greater than 1)= (negative number), contradicting the original statement

Since I, and II must be true, we are down to answer choices c, or e

III c^2 + d^2 >1

The question states D>0 and we know from I that C>0.
quickest way is substitution, try values for c and d that do not satisfy III but still satisfy the rest
c= 1/4
d= 1/2

\frac{1}{4}^2=\frac{1}{16}
\frac{1}{2}^2=\frac{1}{4}

\frac{1}{16}+\frac{1}{4} < 1 <--this opposes III

But when we substitute in the original, we see that it still holds true.
0<1-\frac{c}{d}<1
0<1-\frac{.25}{.50}<1

Therefore only I and II must be true. Choice C.

a. 24,000

I solved this one thinking of permutations

1=A
2=B
3=C
4=D

First pick the thousands digits, this will greatly limit you answer choices
To make the four digit number, I have 4 choices for the thousands digits A,B,C,D

If I pick A then my whole number is going to be 1 thousand something.
How many different choices do I have 6 (3*2*1)

So I thought 6000 + ?

If I pick B then my whole number is going to be 2 thousand something.
How many different choices do I have 6 (3*2*1)

So I thought 6000+12000+?

Repeating this same process I end up with thousands

6000+12000+18000+24000=60000

Just counting the thousands digits you have 60,000 so answers A,B,C are eliminated

Next do the same process with the hundreds place. If the thousands digit is A(1) then how many complete numbers have B in the hundreds (2*1=2) the same for C and D. A thousand 200*2+300*2+400*2=400+600+800=1800.

So we know just with numbers starting 1,??? the hundreds digits added together will equal 1800.

So our final sum must be greater than 61800 (60,000+1800).

There is no need for any further calculation, choice E is only answer choice that fits
