The prices if the seven items, in dollars, were all different integers, and every entrée cost more than every appetizer. What was the price, in dollars, of the most expensive appetizer?

(1) The most expensive entrée cost 16 dollars.

Problems on which you need not to proceed with algebraic equations (by 'the' Ron Purewal)

Note: The content/knowledge was not produced by me; it was merely assimilated from Ron's sessions. ( Please visit http://www.manhattangmat.com/thursdays-with-ron.cfm for more such lessons). I have just compiled various notes , for my convenience,from his videos. You could keep this doc for your revision once you attend the video session.

In this session, the 'Ron' showed how complex algebraic problems could be solve easily, even without touching algebra (algebraic equations).

Please find the compiled .docx note enclosed.

Thanks!
