Both the numbers are divisible by 11

So it reduces to:
273/182

Now both the numbers are divisible by 13

21/14

Now both are divisible by, yes, 7

3/2

1.5

Hi All,

Bunuel has shown how to properly reduce the fraction. Since the answers are numbers though, if you thought that you might be making a mistake in your calculations, then you could use these answers to your advantage and 'rewrite' the equation...

3.003/2.002 =

(one of the answers)(2.002) = 3.003

At this point, most Test Takers would probably assume that the answer was 1.5, so let's start there....

Is... (1.5)(2.002) = 3.003?

(1)(2.002) = 2.002
(.5)(2.002) = 1.001

2.002 + 1.001 = 3.003

This is a match for what we were given, so the solution MUST be 1.5

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Given that 3.003/2.002
= 3003/2002
= (3*1001)/(2*1001)
= 3/2
1.5

Hence option E.

(3.003)/(2.002)=(3+0.003)/(2+0.002)=(3+3х10^(-3))/(2+2х10^(-3))=3(1+10^(-3))/2(1+10^(-3))=3/2=1.5. Hope it is clear

There's a nice property of fractions that says: AB/CD = (A/C)(B/D)

Now notice that 3.003 = (3)(1.001)
And 2.002 = (2)(1.001)

So......3.003/2.002 = (3)(1.001)/(2)(1.001)
= (3/2)(1.001/1.001) [applying the above rule]
= (3/2)(1)
= 3/2

rewrite the fraction:
3.003
2.002
=3+.003
2+.002
=3+3*10^(-3)
2+2*10^(-3)
Factor:
3(1+10^(-3))
2(1+10^(-3))
=3/2
=1.5 answer E.

Gone for simple decimal division...
3.003/2.002= Step 1= 3003*10^3/2002*10^3
Step 2= 3003/2002 (10^3 crossed out)
answer: 1.5.
I hope its right and would be happy if anybody confirms me.
