Hey guys, i was just wondering that the options and answers posted for the PS1000 are correct or have been modified since last time it was posted? When i sit down to solve it, i get answers, which are not even in the options.

Would appreciate if someone could guide me.

Most of the answers are right, I believe!! If you find some discrepancy in few of the answers, why don't you just post them, mentioning proper question number and set. Others can have a look and confirm whether there is indeed a discrepancy. It will benefit many.

This is from Section 1 Question 5

5. At a certain diner, a hamburger and coleslaw cost $3.59, and a hamburger and french fries cost $4.40. If french fries cost twice as much as coleslaw, how much do french fries cost?
(A) $0.30
(B) $0.45
(C) $0.60
(D) $0.75
(E) $0.90

The answer is in the answer sheet is (E). I tried back solving and the only answer that came was close to matching the description was E.

But when i assigned variables such as X (hamburger) Y (Coleslaw) and Z (French Fries) I got the following Equations:

X + Y = 3.59
X + Z = 4.40
Z = 2Y (FRENCH FRIES twice as expensive as COLESLAW)

Solving the above equations i get Y = 0.81 and Z = 1.62, and 1.62 is not even in the options for the cost of french fries..

I dont know know if i have done something wrong in forming the equations. Could someone guide me plzz. :(

This question is discussed here: ps-section-1-q5-95497.html?hilit=coleslaw#p735081

Given:
\(h+c=3.59\), \(h+f=4.4\) and \(f=2c\). Q: \(f=?\)

Subtract 1 from 2: \(h+f-h-c=4.4-3.59\) --> \(f-c=0.81\), as \(f=2c\), then \(f-\frac{f}{2}=0.81\) --> \(f=1.62\).

P.S.
