2. A set of numbers has the property that for any number t in the set, t + 2 is in the set. If â€“1 is in the set, which of the following must also be in the set?
I. -3
II. 1
III. 5

if -1 is in set then -1+2 = 1 is in set
if 1 i in set 1+2=3 is in set
if is in set then 3+2 so 5 is in set

3. If x and y are positive, is 3x > 7y?
(1) x > y + 4
(2) -5x < -14y

(1) x > y + 4

y =1 then x > 5 x could be 6 then 18 > 7
y=10 then x >14 x could be 15 then 45 is not greater than 70

so (1) is in suff

(2) -5x < -14y

or is 5x > 14 y

y =1 x>14/5 say 3 ------------ 9 is greater than 7
y=100 x>1400/5 say 300 ....... 900 is greater than 700

5 . In the xy-plane, point (r, s) lies on a circle with center at the origin. What is the value of R^2 + s^2?
(1) The circle has radius 2.
(2) The point (v2, -v2) lies on the circle.

r^2+s^=radius ^2 this is equation of a circle
using (1)
So r^2 + s ^2 = 4

Suff

if v2 and -v2 lie on the circle

Substitute v2 and -v2 for r and s respectively

r^2+s^2=v2^2 + (-v2^2)= 2v2^2

6 . If w and c are integers, is w > 0?
(1) W + c > 50
(2) C > 48

using (1)
W> 50-c
assume c = 100 W>50-100= -50 so w is negative
assume c = 1 W=50+1=51 so w is positive

insuff

using (2)
Useless info insuff
Edited below

Togather
W>50-49=1 greater than 0
W > 50 -60 =-10 less than zero

insuff

7 . A photographer will arrange 6 people of 6 different heights for photograph by placing them in two rows of three so that each person in the first row is standing in front of someone in the second row. The heights of the people within each row must increase from left to right, and each person in the second row must be taller than the person standing in front of him or her. How many such arrangements of the 6 people are
possible?
A. 5
B. 6

9 . Joanna bought only $0.15 stamps and$0.29 stamps. How many $0.15 stamps did she buy? (1) She bought$4.40 worth of stamps.
(2) She bought an equal number of $0.15 stamps and$0.29 stamps.

Using 1
0.15x+0.29y=4.40 insuff

Using 2

x=y

Using (1) and (2) togather we can find out x

This might be a tric question because using we can try to guess ratio of x and y and i belive we will get integer value for number of stamps only when x=y

12 . In a certain region, the number of children who have been vaccinated against rubella is twice the number who have been vaccinated against mumps. The number who have been vaccinated against both is twice the number who have been vaccinated only against mumps. If 5,000 have been vaccinated against both, how many have been vaccinated only against rubella?
A. 2,500
B. 7,500
C. 10,000
D. 15,000
E. 17,500

Both = 5000
Given both = 2 * only agianst mumps (OM)=> 5000= 2 OM ==> OM = 2500

Given R=2M==> M = Both (M+R) + OM=> 5000+2500=7500
R=2(7500)=15000
Only R (OR) = R - both (M+R) = 15000 - 5000=10,000

4. If 10^50 â€“ 74 is written as an integer in base 10 notation, what is the sum of the digits in
that integer?
A. 424
B. 433
C. 440
D. 449
e.467

10,000 - 74 = 9926
100,000 - 74 = 99926

So if there are n zerors there are (n-2) 9s and 2 and 6

In ou case there are 50 0s
so (50-48)*9=432
432 +2 +6 =440

Company C.

Why not I?
If t+2 = -1, then t=-3

(2) She bought an equal number of $0.15 stamps and$0.29 stamps.

Ans: D
s1: For the total to be 4.40, 0.29stamps should be a multiple of 5. Only 10 works.

s2: 4.40/(0.15+0.29)

OK. worked out the questions and only post the answers of mine.
I will post explanation if you need.

1. question is unclear. No answer.

2. II and III. if the set starts at -1, it only increases. so u can't find -3.

3. B.

4. C. try out 100^2, 100^3, 1000^4 and find the pattern.

5. C. if (v2, -v2) means (2, -2). i dont understand what the v means. What it asks is basically the square of the radius.

6. E. plug in and find exceptions.

7. A.

8. E.

9. A.
This one is tricky, as the answers can only be integer. and 0.29 stamps can only be multiple of 5. try out and you find you have to buy 10 pieces of both. this is hte only answer.
2) alone is not enough.

10. C

11. only III

12. C.
