x gallons of 1% milk + y gallons of 2% milk + z gallons of 3% milk = x+y+z gallons of 1.5% milk

x + 2y+3z = 1.5x + 1.5 y + 1.5z

solving we get x= y+3z

Q1.
The equation can be formed as .01x + .02y + .03z = .015 ( x + y +z)

and by simplifying the equations you will get x = y + 3z

Q2. If X > Y^2 >Z^4

1. X>Y>Z
2. Z>Y>X
3. X>Z>Y

Now in this question we need check the values which COULD be true and not MUST. Also Y^2 and Z^4 will always be +ve.

So now lets plug in numbers, by simply putting the values X = 5, Y = 2, Z =1,
St 1 could be true.

Now lets plug in values as Z = 0.5, Z^4 = .0625, Y = 0.4, Y^2 = 0.16 , X = 0.3
So, St2 could also be true.

Now lets plug in values as X =1 , Z = 0.5, Z^4 =.0625 and Y = -0.5, Y ^2 = 0.25
So, St3 is also true.

Hope that helps

Lets assume Laura has X quarters and Y dimes, then we know X+Y=20
and also 0.25X + 0.1Y = 3.05

solve these and you will get the answer

Another way of looking at it ..!

We know that sum is $3.05 which means number of quarters or dimes will odd, so straight away u can eliminate the even answer options ( 10 and 16 ) now we are left with options 3, 7 and 13, clearly in the left options you can clearly see that 13 can be the only candidate.

Or you can also use the spilt option to make it easy by plugging in use 10 first and you will see that answer has to be greater than 10 ..

Question says $ 3.05 is the sum of the quarters and dimes, and total number of coins =20

Now, we know dime = 0.10 and quarter =0.25, and say for e,g number of quarters is even ( For eg 10) then the total value of 10 quarters would be $ 2.50 and also dime value is $ 0.1 , so irrespective of the fact that whether number of dimes is even or odd the sum of the dime value will be a multiple of 10

So to have the total of $3.05 ( or I should say .05 Cents, the number of quarters will be odd like 3, 7, 9, etc)

Hope that helps..!

About the book, I am not an expert but I guess if you read a couple of posts by experts on their strategy and GMAT journey, you will find pretty nice books.

In fact you can also read the initial threads in the maths forum where moderators have compiled the list of all the good books ..!
