Math Questions I need help on [#permalink]
28 Feb 2009, 14:01
So the following 5 math questions I am having difficulty figuring out how to get to the answers given...any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
1) Fox jeans regularly sell for $15 a pari and Pony Jeans regularly sell for $18 a pair. During a sale these regular unit prices are discounted at different rates so that a total of $9 is saved by purchasing 5 pairs of jeans: 3 pairs of Fox Jeans and 2 pairs of Pony Jeans. If the sum of the two discount rates is 22 percent, what is the discount rate on Pony Jeans?
2) If [x] is the greatest integer less than or equal to x, what is the value of [-1.6]+[3.4]+[2.7]?
--> Since this adds to 4.5 and it says the greatest integer less than or equal to x, I would have thought the answer was 4 (this was one of the choices, but not the right answer so not sure what I'm missing here).
3) Two triangles are shown with the same measurements for each angle: if the base of the smaller triangle is denoted s and the base of the larger triangle is denoted S, what is s in terms of S if the larger triangle has an area 2 times that of the smaller triangle?
Answer: S=s*the square root of 2
4) What is the greatest prime factor of 4^17-2^28
5) square root of ((9+square root of 80)+square root of(9-square root of 8))^2
