I like u r avatar better now. Pervious one was too big and holding on to the one and only one achievement of our cricket team.
Here is the problem you requested. I think you need to register yourself. Each time you will login and then go to challenge problem of the week.
The sequence f(n) = (2n)! ├╖ n! is defined for all positive integer values of n. If x is defined as the product of the first 10 ten terms of this sequence, which of the following is the greatest factor of x?
Hey Anandk, I got the same answer as you did (E). I started doing the calculations and got the answer only after seeing the pattern and obviously used n(n+1)/2 in order to find the exponent value. It is a long question though and sure took me more than 2 min. _________________
took me about 4 minutes. I don't believe GMAT problems are this long. Problems like these are really there as an outstretch to make you think. The thinking process is good. As for this problem, once you see the pattern, you don't have to work out the whole thing. _________________
it took me about 3 minutes but I did a stupid thing of calculating it in my head first. I knew I messedup in between because I was not getting any answer that matched. I started right but should have used pen and paper.
I used pen and paper finally and got it right.
Keep it in mind folks. Always use pen and paper right from the begining. I believe many people do it in their brain and get a wrong answer. Later they do it on paper and post the right answer. Getting it wrong here has no penalty. I feel one has to use pen and paper right from the begining. If one does not do it in this forum he/she will most likely will not do it in the test as well.
I did this and suffered many silly mistakes. Then my confidence went down and I was over cautious in further tests and endedup scoring less by locking horns on each and every silly problem. Had I used pen and paper right from the begining I would not have lost confidence and neither would I have made silly mistakes.
