Q: <PRS-<PQR=?

(1) The measure of angle QPR is 30°. <QPR=30 --> in triangle QPR three angles sum=180=<QPR+<PQR+<PRQ -->180=30+<PQR+(180-<PRS) --> 30=<PRS-<PQR SUFFICIENT

(2) The sum of the measures of angles PQR and PRQ is 150°. Basically the same information is given <PQR+<PRQ=150 --> <PQR+180-<PRS=150 --> 30=<PRS-<PQR SUFFICIENT

Answer: D.

1) Angle PRS = QPR + PQR
PRS = 30 + PQR
PRS - PQR = 30 SUFFICIENT
2) PQR + PRQ = 150
PQR + 180-PRS = 150
PRS - PQR = 30 SUFFICIENT

Hi, there! I'm happy to help with this one. :)

What's tricky about this problem is that there are three different triangles in the diagram, and we have to apply the "180 degree Triangle Theorem" in each one.

First of all, from the diagram, we know in triangle PRS, that (angle SPR) + (angle PRS) + 90 = 180, or in other words, (angle SPR) + (angle PRS) = 90

In triangle PQS, we know that (angle SPQ) + (angle SQR) + 90 = 180, or in other words, (angle SPQ) + (angle PQR) = 90.

Set those two equal:

(angle SPR) + (angle PRS) = (angle SPQ) + (angle PQR)

(angle SPQ) - (angle SPR) = (angle PRS) - (angle PQR)

The question is asking: "the measure of angle PRS is how many degrees greater than the measure of angle PQR?" In other words, they are asking for (angle PRS) - (angle PQR), and our equation above tells us that: if we know (angle SPQ) - (angle SPR), then we know (angle PRS) - (angle PQR).

Statement #1: (angle QPR) = 30 degrees

We know that (angle SPQ) = (angle SPR) + (angle QPR) (big angle equals the sum of the two little angles the comprise it)

Therefore (angle SPQ) = (angle SPR) + 30 --> (angle SPQ) - (angle SPR) = 30 ---> (angle PRS) - (angle PQR) = 30

Statement #1 is sufficient by itself. .

Statement #2: (angle PQR) + (angle PRQ) = 150 degrees

Well, in triangle PQR, we know that: (angle PQR) + (angle PRQ) + (angle QPR) = 180 degrees

If (angle PQR) + (angle PRQ) = 150 degrees, then 150 + (angle QPR) = 180 degrees ---> (angle QPR) = 30, and we have the same information we had in statement #1, so statement #2 is also sufficient by itself.

Answer Choice D. Does that make sense?

Here's another GMAT DS question on the 180 degree Triangle Theorem, just for practice.

https://gmat.magoosh.com/questions/1009

The question at that link should be followed by a video explanation of the answer.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Mike :)

Re: triangle [#permalink] New post 08 Jan 2012, 16:23
To determine the difference between PQR and PRS, we need some sort of equation between them.

1. QPR=30, which means 180-(PQR+PRQ)=30, which give PQR+PRQ=150. Now PQR+(180-PRQ)=150. This gives us the difference. Suff
2. PQR + PRQ = 150. Same solution as above. Suff.

Re: triangle [#permalink] New post 09 Jan 2012, 12:59
Statement 1:
From triangle QPS:
Q+QPR+RPS=90
Q+RPS=90-QPR=60 ----1

From triangle RPS:
R+RPS=90---------2

Substract 1 from 2, we will get R-Q = 30, which gives us an answer.
A is sufficient

Statement 2 translates to QPR = 30 from triangle QPR. Thus, it will yield the same result as statement 1.

Answer is D.

Hi, sorry for the stupid question but it is something I can't grasp.

The text when it refers to angles PRS or PGR to which angles is it visually referring to?

I literally can't understand on the chart which are the angles the problem is asking about.

Thanks for your help.

An angle can be identified like this: ∠PQR. The angle symbol, followed by three points that define the angle, with the middle letter being the vertex, and the other two on the legs.

Attachment:

Angle.png [ 5.63 KiB | Viewed 5128 times ]
So in the figure above the red angle would be ∠PQR or ∠RQP (so long as the vertex is the middle letter, the order is not important).

Hope it's clear.

Hi I used the following method. Turned out to be the quickest for me.

Theorem: An exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the opposite interior angles.

So, as per the theorem, for Triangle PRQ we have ...
PRS = RPQ + PQR

which gives,

RPQ= PRS - PQR .

Now if we know the measure of RPQ. We are sorted. :D

1) RPQ = 30. SUFFICIENT.

2) same as 1. SUFFICIENT

So D. :-D

Will also work just fine if we say that RPS is X and QPR is y. We then are asked to find PRS - PQR. PRS is 90-x while pqr is 90 - (x+y). Therefore, translating algebraically, we will need the value of 'y' to solve.

Statement 1, we are directly given the value of y=30.
Statement 2, 180 - (PQR+PRQ=150)=30=y.

Hence both statements are sufficient

Too long, this is how I solved.

Let's call PRS 'X' so RPS ' 90-X'
Let's call QPR Y so PQR 'x-y'

We are asked to find PRS - PQR = x - (x-y) = y

Statement 1

QPR is 30, therefore y=30.
Sufficient

Statement 2

PQR + PRQ = 150

Therefore x-y + 180 - X = 150 (Note that since PRS is X then PRQ will be its complement thus 180 -X

Solving we have that y=30

Sufficient

Hope it helps
Cheers!
J :)
