A. 72 B. 50 C. 48 D. 46 E. 44

at 6, the number of strokes will be 6 and the number of time interval between strokes will be 5, for a total of 11 - so each one is 2 sec. at 12, number of strokes will be 12 and the number of time intervals will be 11 for a total of 23
total time = 23 * 2 = 46

A certain right triangle has sides of length x, y, z, where x < y< z. If the area of this triangular region is 1, which of the following indicates all of the possible values of y?

The area of the triangle is \frac{xy}{2}=1 (x<y<z means that hypotenuse is z) --> x=\frac{2}{y}. As x<y, then \frac{2}{y}<y --> 2<y^2 --> \sqrt{2}<y.

Also note that max value of y is not limited at all. For example y can be 1,000,000 and in this case \frac{xy}{2}=\frac{x*1,000,000}{2}=1 --> x=\frac{2}{1,000,000}.

Answer: A.

Hope it helps.

A. 6
B. 12
C. 24
D. 36
E. 48

The largest positive integer that must divide n, means for lowest value of n which satisfies the given statement in the stem. The lowest square of integer, which is multiple of 72 is 144 --> n^2=144 --> n=12. Largest factor of 12 is 12.

OR:

Given: 72k=n^2, where k is an integer \geq1 (as n is positive).

72k=n^2 --> n=6\sqrt{2k}, as n is an integer \sqrt{2k}, also must be an integer. The lowest value of k, for which \sqrt{2k} is an integer is when k=2 --> \sqrt{2k}=\sqrt{4}=2 --> n=6\sqrt{2k}=6*2=12

Answer: B.

110 i dont understand what the interval means
does it mean the how many strokes to get to the 6th stroke not counting the beginning.

157. i need more questions like this, i'm not quite conveying it. i need elementary explanations with pictures

sorry!
thank you!

Answer: B.


Bunuel,
48^2 is also divisible by 72. Why can't 48 be N ?

Interval is the time delay between each stroke which is equal to the time required for stroke . The 22 seconds includes the time from the beginning of the first stroke till the end of the 6th stroke including the gap time in between.

If let's say S is the time for each stroke and I is the interval time in between
S+I+S+I+S+I+S+I+S+I+S =22sec
But S=I
11S =11I=22 and S=I=2 seconds

At 12:00 clock strikes 12 times and there will be 11 intervals in total between the 12 strokes so total time will be (12+11)*2 = 46

Hope this helps

Thanks

Answer: B.


Bunuel,
48^2 is also divisible by 72. Why can't 48 be N ?


The question is about the largest integer that must divide n. With the known information we can only say that n is divisible by 12 irrespective of the value of k. 36 and 48 also can divide n but they are dependent on k value being a multiple of 18 and 32 respectively. But since we don't know k value 12 is the largest that must divide n

Thanks

110. A certain clock marks every hour by striking a number of times qual to the hour, and the time required for a stroke is exactly equal to the time interval between strokes. At 6:00 the time lapse between the beginning of the first stroke and the end of the last stroke is 22 secs. At 12:00, how many seconds elapse between the beginning of the first stroke and the end of the last stroke?


solution:- at 6'o clock there will be 6 strokes, now will we find number of intervals between these 6 strokes which will be one less than total strokes i.e.5

now given in ques is

"the time required for a stroke is exactly equal to the time interval between strokes."

so total time lapsed for 1stroke (x) at 6 o clock comes out to be

(6strokes+5 interval)x = 22
x=2

now at 12o clock, there will be 12 strokes and 11 intervals i.e. total 23

so total time lapse will be 23*2=46 secs
