If n is a positive integer and p = 3.021 × 10n, what is the value of n?

1. 3,021 < p < 302,100
2. 103 < p < 105



Are you asking for how to solve this? Here is how I would approach it

Look at it as p = 30.21*n

1. I would immediately see that setting n =100 would make p = 3021, so n>1000. Setting n = 10000 sets p = 302100.

Thus 100 > n > 10000 NOT SUFFICIENT

2. If we had n = 3 it would be ~90 , if we had n = 4 it would be ~120. Every other n would not work.

NOT SUFFICIENT

IMPORTANT:

This is not a valid DS question for the GMAT. The two options will never contradict each other. Option 2 clearly contradicts option 1. Option 1 allows for a giant range of values while option 2 implies there is no answer at all

Is the actual question as follows?

1. 3,021 < p < 302,100
2. (10)^3 < p < (10)^5

combining options 1 and 2, n can be either 3 or 4.
hence E.

1. 3,021 < p < 302,100
2. (10)^3 < p < (10)^5

1.
3021=3.021*10^3
302100=3.021*10^5
3.021*10^3 < p < 3.021*10^5
3.021*10^3 < 3.021*10^4 < 3.021*10^5
n=4
Sufficient.

2. (10)^3 < p < (10)^5
1000 < p < 100000
p can be 3021 or 30210 making n=3 or n=4 respectively.
Not Sufficient.

Ans: "A"
