Each week we'll be posting several questions from The Official Guide For GMAT® Quantitative Review, 2ND Edition and then after couple of days we'll provide Official Answer (OA) to them along with a slution.

We'll be glad if you participate in development of this project: 1. Please provide your solutions to the questions; 2. Please vote for the best solutions by pressing Kudos button; 3. Please vote for the questions themselves by pressing Kudos button; 4. Please share your views on difficulty level of the questions, so that we have most precise evaluation.

On the number line, if r < s, if p is halfway between rand s, and if t is halfway between p and r, then (s - t)/(t - r) =

(A) 1/4 (B) 1/3 (C) 4/3 (D) 3 (E) 4

Let r=0 and s=4 --> p is halfway between r and s: p=2; t is halfway between p=2 and r=0: t=1;

(s-t)/(t-r)=(4-1)/(1-0)=3.

Answer: D.

P.S. On the GMAT we can often see such statement: \(k\) is halfway between \(m\) and \(n\) on the number line. Remember this statement can ALWAYS be expressed algebraically as: \(\frac{m+n}{2}=k\).

p is halfway b/w r and s hence p=(r+s)/2 Again t is halfway b/w p and r hence t=(p+r)/2=((r+s)/2+r)/2=(3*r+s)/4 take r, s as 0,4 for easy calculation => p=2, t=1 =>(s-t)/(t-r)=3

I would say the difficulty is little more than 600

its easy once you understand that you have to assume the value, but many folks fail to do so. Those may get into cumbersome algebra and get things difficult.

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.
