a. 2
b. 4
c. 8
d. 20
e. 45

The remainder is 0.12 or 12/100. You can go one step further and say that X/Y=12/100, where X and Y are whole numbers. Plug in all the answer choices for X and see which one makes Y a whole number.

One thing that jumps out at me is that A, B, C, and D are all even. E on the other hand is odd. Why? Maybe I'll start plugging in here first.

45/Y=12/100
12Y=4500
Y=375

s=64t + 0.12t
0.12t is remainder, which is a +ve integer.
Try values so that t = integer.
0.12t=45 satisfies the conditions.

Hey, all. I am just starting out my GMAT prep. I see that some of the OG 12 questions' explanations are posted on this forum along with the difficulty level. For example: This question is listed as a 750 level question. So, my question is this: Where are these difficulty level ratings coming from? Is it based on the poster's estimate or is it an "official" difficulty rating? Just wondering, is all. =)

If s and t are positive integers such that s/t = 64.12, which of the following could be the remainder when s is divided by t ?

(A) 2
(B) 4
(C) 8
(D) 20
(E) 45

$$s$$ divided by $$t$$ yields the remainder of $$r$$ can always be expressed as: $$\frac{s}{t}=q+\frac{r}{t}$$ (which is the same as $$s=qt+r$$), where $$q$$ is the quotient and $$r$$ is the remainder.

Given that $$\frac{s}{t}=64.12=64\frac{12}{100}=64\frac{3}{25}=64+\frac{3}{25}$$, so according to the above $$\frac{r}{t}=\frac{3}{25}$$, which means that $$r$$ must be a multiple of 3. Only option E offers answer which is a multiple of 3
