would pick D

with statement 1, only one possible value is possible - 51,000

and with statement 2 the equation in the question isnt even required (which is a bit bizarre)

[quote="fresinha12"]D for me too[/quote]

My first post. I am doing really bad in Math.
Isn't it A?
k^2 = etc...
k could be either +ve or -ve.
it's said n is +ve. Nothing is mentioned about k[quote][/quote]

OK Got it.
k=5.1*10^n proves that k is +ve.
But this equation is necessary I guess.
