Re: If a and n are integers and n > 1, is n odd? [#permalink] New post 23 Aug 2012, 01:11
Am not srue as to how to substitute values and slove this. Am writing the algebric solution to this problems

If a and n are integers and n > 1, is n odd?

(1) a^(n–1) > a^n
a^(n-1) - a^n > 0
a^(n-1) (1 -a) >0
Either both a^(n-1) and (1-a) are > 0 or both are < 0
taking the case in which both are > 0
a^(n-1) >0 1-a> 0 => a<1 and a^(n-1) > 0 so, only possible solution to this is a < 0 and n-1 = even => n = odd

taking the case in which both are < 0
a^(n-1) < 0 and 1-a < 0 => a > 1 There is no solution to thsi equation as a^(n-1) for a > 1 will always be > 0

So, SUFFICIENT!

(2) a^n > a^(3n)
a^n - a^3n >0
a^n(1-a^2n) > 0
Either both a^n and (1-a^2n) are > 0 or both are < 0
taking the case when both are > 0
a^n > 0 , 1 -a^2n > 0 => a^2n < 1 and a^n > 0
This equation is true for negative a and negative even values of n, But n > 1 so, NO solution!

taking the case when both are < 0
a^n < 0 , 1 -a^2n < 0 => a^2n > 1 and a^n < 0
This equation is true for negative values of a and odd values of n, So n is odd, SUFFICIENT

Answer is D

If you factor, as in the post above, you can avoid cases if you arrange things differently. Rewriting Statement 1, noticing that a cannot be 1, we can factor out the smaller power, so can factor out a^(n-1) :

0 > a^n - a^(n-1)
0 > a^(n-1) (a - 1)

Now one term on the right side must be positive, and the other must be negative. But if a is a positive integer, that can't possibly be true -- both terms will be positive. So a must be negative, and (a-1) must be the negative term, and a^(n-1) must be the positive term. Since a is negative, that means the exponent must be even, so n-1 is even and n is odd.

Similarly for Statement 2, notice a cannot be -1, 0 or 1, and we have

0 > a^(3n) - a^n
0 > a^n [a^(2n) - 1]

and again, one term must be positive, the other negative. But a^(2n) has an even exponent, so it must be positive and so a^(2n) - 1 is the positive term (using the fact that a cannot be 0, 1 or -1). That makes a^n the negative term. But if a^n is negative, a must be negative, and n must be odd.

I don't think you need to do the problem algebraically, however. You can just imagine how different numbers would 'behave' in the inequalities given. So if you know that n is a positive integer greater than 1, and you know

a^(n-1) > a^n

then you might be able to see that a must be negative, since this inequality won't ever be true if a > 1. And if we know the base is negative, and we can see that one exponent is even and the other is odd (since the exponents are just consecutive integers), we know that one side of the inequality will become positive, and the other will remain negative. Clearly the larger side needs to be positive, which makes n-1 even, and n odd.

Similarly for the other Statement, the inequality

a^n > a^(3n)

simply cannot be true if a > 1. Since 1, 0 or -1 don't work in this inequality, a must be -2 or smaller. But then if n is even, it wouldn't matter if a is negative or positive, since even exponents just 'erase' our negative signs. And we know it must matter, since the inequality won't work if we have positive bases on either side. So the inequality will only work if n is odd so that the left and right sides both remain negative.

From the conditions in both statements, we can deduce that a cannot be neither 0 nor 1.
A little algebraic manipulation can help in understanding the inequalities and also in choosing values for a.
Usually it is easier to compare a product of numbers to 0, so it is worth rearranging the inequalities such that there is a comparison to 0 involved.

(1) a^{n-1}>a^n can be rewritten as a^{n-1}-a^n>0 or a^{n-1}(1-a)>0.
If a>1, doesn't matter if n is even or odd, the given inequality cannot hold.
If a<0, then necessarily n must be odd.
Sufficient.

(2)a^n>a^{3n} can be rewritten as a^n-a^{3n} or a^n(1-a^{2n})>0.
Since a cannot be neither 0 nor 1, \,\,1-a^{2n} is certainly negative. (Now a cannot be -1 either.)
Then a^n is negative if a is negative and n is odd, and this is the only way the given inequality can hold.
If a is positive, doesn't matter the value of n, the inequality cannot hold.
Sufficient.

Consider substituting numbers:

statement 1 : To get stmt 1 true n=2 (even) and a = -2 (+ve numbers will never satisfy condition)

-2^1>-2^2 = -2>4 (No)

n=3 (odd) and a = -2

-2^2>-2^3 = 4>-8 (Yes)

Sufficient

Statement 2 : To get stmt 2 true n=2 (even) and a = -2 (+ve numbers will never satisfy condition)

-2^2>-2^6 = 4>64 (No)

n=3 (odd) and a = -2

-2^3>-2^9 = -8>-512 (Yes)

Sufficient

So a must be negative, and (a-1) must be the negative term, and a^(n-1) must be the positive term. Since a is negative, that means the exponent must be even, so n-1 is even and n is odd.

Similarly for Statement 2, notice a cannot be -1, 0 or 1, and we have

0 > a^(3n) - a^n
0 > a^n [a^(2n) - 1]

and again, one term must be positive, the other negative. But a^(2n) has an even exponent, so it must be positive and so a^(2n) - 1 is the positive term (using the fact that a cannot be 0, 1 or -1). That makes a^n the negative term. But if a^n is negative, a must be negative, and n must be odd.

I don't think you need to do the problem algebraically, however. You can just imagine how different numbers would 'behave' in the inequalities given. So if you know that n is a positive integer greater than 1, and you know

And we know it must matter, since the inequality won't work if we have positive bases on either side. So the inequality will only work if n is odd so that the left and right sides both remain negative.

S1) a^(n–1) > a^n
This can happen in two cases. If a is negative (e.g. -2^2 > -2^3) of if a is fraction (e.g. (1/2)^2 > (1/2)^3.
Since we are told that both a and n are integers, later case is not possible.
So we can conclude that a is negative.
Now to hold the inequality a^(n–1) > a^n true when a being negative, n-1 must be even and hence n must be odd. Sufficient

S2) In the same way as S1 this choice is also sufficient

Ans = D

(2) a^n > a^(3n)

Well , i feel a bit intimidated by equation questions so it took me 2:25 to solve this one. But if you keep the initial hesitation aside , this can be solved in less than 2 min.

From 1) a^n-1 > a ^n. From given conditions ie n> 1 and a and n being integers , this is only possible if a is negative and n-1 is even integer. so n is an odd integer.
From 2) a^n > a^3n. Again only possible if a is negative and n has to be odd.

So D is the answer.

If a and n are integers and n > 1, is n odd?

(1) a^(n–1) > a^n
(2) a^n > a^(3n)

from 1

a^(n–1) > a^n thus , a^(n-1) - a^n > 0 , thus a^n (a^-1 - 1) > 0 i.e. a^n [ (1/a) - 1] >0 and n>1 and 1/a is a fraction therefore a^n has to be -ve , this is only possible when a is -ve integer and n is odd .....suff

from 2

a^n > a^(3n), thus , a^n - a^ 3n > 0 thus a^n ( 1- a^2n) > 0 and since a,n are integers and n>1 and since (1-a^2n) is definitely -ve therefore a^n is -ve and n is odd ....suff

We are factoring our a^{n-1} from a^{n-1}-a^n to get a^{n-1}(1-a):

a^{n-1}(1-a)=a^{n-1}*1-a^{n-1}*a=a^{n-1}-a^{n-1+1}=a^{n-1}-a^{n}.

Hope it's clear.

We have a^{n-1} and a^{n}. Now, a^{n}=a^{n-1}*a.

P.S. We can factor out a^{n-1} from a^{n-1}-a^{n+1} too: since a^{n+1}=a^{n-1}a^2, then a^{n-1}-a^{n+1}=a^{n-1}(1-a^2).

Good question +1. We are asked if n is odd given that 'a' and 'n' are integers.

From statement 1 we have that 'n' must be odd so that if 'a' is negative then negative ^ even is positive > negative^ odd. Therefore sufficient.

Statement 2 tells s that n must be odd otherwise if n is even then both numbers will have even exponent and there's no way that a^even> a^3even.

Therefore D is the correct answer choice

Hope it clarifies
Cheers!
