Hey all, and thank you for the great flashcards, greatly appreciated!

I have a question though:

On pg.29 Algebra (Hard)

After solving the equation \sqrt{(x-3)^2} you solve it as 3 - x

Why is that? I would have come to the answer x - 3.

Is there a special rule in this case? Any explanation is kindly appreciated!

You mean this question: m08-16-squares-75296.html

On pg.29 Algebra (Hard):
be cause you can write Expression in question=|x-3|+V^(2-x)+x-3
and v^(2-x) must be greater than 0 : ==>x<2
and Expression =-(x-3)+V^(2-x)+x-3=V^(2-x)

Thank you for this great work! You guys are amazing.
I havnt gone through all the materials, but found a minor error on P.44 of Verbal Strategies: On the answer choice bar, correct choice should be A in stead of B.
Also, on P.40, the explanation for choice C is not clear because C does not mention anything "objection".

Also, on p. 78 Verbal Flashcard, could you please double-check the rules for "A number of" and "The number of"?
According to the MGMAT 8, "A number of + plural noun" takes PLURAL verb, while "The number of + plural noun" takes SINGULAR verb.

On p. 85 Verbal part, the correct answer should be: Many of the students WERE surprised to learn that their exams WERE unfairly graded.

Sorry, please follow the rules for "a number" vs "the number" from MGMAT. I was sleep deprived when I finished that I guess?

Am I missing something? Shouldn't the answer be -42??

Sum of consecutive integers
consecutive integers ‐8,‐9,‐7,‐6,‐5,‐4,‐3,‐2,‐1,0,1,2

The answer in the flashcards is -36.

indeed!!

(-9 + 2)/2 = -3.5
-3.5 * 12 = -42

Thank you. Just so you don't think that I am a lame dude who can't count (add in this case), I managed to write the sequence wrong down (in this case, I am really a guy who can't type), and typed up -8, -9, -7, etc, thus starting it at -8. I have fixed that part but did not check the solution. That has been fixed this time.

Thank you.
BB.
