The following question is located in the Equations, Inequalities & VICs Manhattan Guide book on page 135. I just need some clarification on the last part of their working out of the answer. I'll post this below in a spoiler section, so please click to find where I am a bit stuck.

What is the value of ab^2?

(1) a=b-1
(2) a=b^2-1

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Answer is C.

MGMAT provides the following working out:
"if we combine statements (1) and (2), we find that a and b can still have 2 different values.
b-1=b^2-1
b=b^2
0=b^2-b
0=b(b-1)

b= 0 or 1
a= -1 or 0

So b=0 when a=-1, and b=1 when a=0. However, in either case ab^2=0. Therefore statements (1) and (2) combined are sufficient.

Please explain how b can equal 0 or 1?
Could I deduce b=1 using this equation from above: 0=b(b-1). Take out the b on the outside of the brackets and solve the remaining 0=(b-1) equation, therefore b=1?

Likewise, how do I deduce that b=0 also? Is it from this equation 0=b^2-b?

What I seem to find difficult is how would you know that b has two answers. THANKS IN ADVANCE!


What is the value of ab^2?

(1) a=b-1. Clearly insufficient.

(2) a=b^2-1. Clearly insufficient.

(1)+(2) b-1=b^2-1 --> b^2=b --> b^2-b=0 --> b(b-1)=0. For the product of two numbers (b and b-1) to be zero one of them (or both) must be zero. So either:
b=0 --> a=b-1=-1 --> ab^2=0;
or
b-1=0, b=1 --> a=b-1=0 --> ab^2=0.

The same answer for both cases. Sufficient.

Answer: C.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the quick reply Bunuel, kudos for the explanation.

What I am slightly concerned about is that if a similar question appears on the GMAT, I may fail to spot the fact that b can have two answers. If b^2-b=0 then surely b must equal 0. Why do we then go and factorise to produce a new expression: b(b-1)=0? And when solving for b using this latter expression, why do we drop the first b and do b-1=0 therefore b=1 instead of b(b-1)=0 and solve?

Sorry if this sounds convoluted but I'm probably overlooking a rule somewhere, which essentially needs clarification.

First of all b^2-b=0 is a quadratic equation and it can have 2 solutions.
Next: b^2-b=0 means that either b=0 (0^2-0=0) or b=1 (1^2-1=0) (so it's not necessary b to be zero). We did not drop b=0 we just found the second solution b=1.

You might need to revise basics of algebra.

Hope it helps.

Ah got it now :), silly mistake really. As it's been so long since I've touched algebra that I thought all quadratics looked like Ax^2+ Bx - C= 0 so the b(b-1)=0 threw me a little. I realize now that b(b-1)=0 is the same as saying (b) . (b-1)=0 which follows the concept of what a quadratic looks like after its been factorised ie (x+1) . (x-1)=0. Thus, we can solve the two values for b by taking each expression individually (b & (b-1)) and equating them each to zero.

Thanks for your help Bunuel, very kind!

Bunuel,
Please can you explain my confusion?
If I place the equation as b-1 = b^2-1 and solve it by thinking
b-1 = (b-1) (b+1) ==> b = -1..... which is only one solution... is this method wrong?? or it is ok? Please kindly tell me if i am making some mistake.

First of all the roots of the equation b-1 = b^2-1 are b=0 and b=1 (see the solution in my post), if you got these roots you solved the equation correctly and if you got different roots you solved incorrectly.

Next, I don't understand why aren't you cancelling (-1) from b-1=b^2-1 --> b=b^2.

But anyway if you don't and we proceed the way you are doing: b-1=b^2-1 --> b-1=(b-1)(b+1). Now how is b=-1 the root of this equation? b-1=-2\neq{(b-1)(b+1)}=0.

Re: Data sufficiency question on equations from MGMAT [#permalink] New post 13 Jun 2010, 06:29
Sorry, it was an error from my side. I mean to say if I arrive with only one solution ==> b=0, accroding to the method i mentioned. Then why it is considered wrong?
b-1 = b^2 - 1
b-1 = (b-1) (b+1)
1 = b+1 ==> b=0

Why I am not cancelling 1 on each side? I dont know... That is the first thought when i looked at the equation. I want to make a note in my mind why it is wrong so that i dont make these mistakes on the test day.
Thanks for your ever woderful support.

I see. When you write 1 = b+1 after b-1 = (b-1) (b+1) what you are actually doing is reducing (dividing) the equation by b-1 but we can not do that as it can equal to zero.

Never reduce equation by variable (or expression with variable), if you are not certain that variable (or expression with variable) doesn't equal to zero. We can not divide by zero.

So basically when you divide by b-1 you assume that it doesn't equal to zero, thus missing the second valid solution for b-1 = (b-1) (b+1) which is b-1=0 --> b=1.

Again if we proceed the way you are doing b-1 = (b-1) (b+1) --> (b-1)-(b-1) (b+1)=0 --> factor out b-1 --> (b-1)(1-b-1)=0 --> (b-1)b=0 (the type of equation you'd receive right away if you'd cancel out -1) --> b=0 or b=1.

Hope it's clear.

Just a caveat:Note the part that is highlighted,

You can't cancel out (b-1) on both the sides, as you don't know whether b=1 or not.
Thus, either b=1 or b=0. In either case, you get ab=0.

Answer is C.

Just to add for St 2 we have

a = (b-1)(b+1) => a=a(b+1) { from St 1 we have a=b-1}

a= a(b+1)
1=b+1 => b=0, so ab is 0, sufficient.
