6(87.30+0.65)−5(87.30)

=> 6(87.30) + 6(0.65) - 5(87.30)

=> 6(87.30) - 5(87.30) + 6(0.65)

=> 87.30 + 3.9

=> 91.20

Hence option D

87.30 = x

= 6x + 6*0.65 -5x

= x + 3.90

= 87.30 + 3.90

= 91.20

The best answer is B.

Because answer choices C, D, and E are so close to one another, we cannot use approximate values to solve this arithmetic problem. Expanding the first term and simplifying, we have:

6 x 87.30 + 6 x 0.65 - 5 x 87.30

6 x 87.30 - 5 x 87.30 + 6 x 0.65

87.30(6 - 5) + 3.9

87.3 + 3.9 = 91.2

Answer: D

After further solving the given expression we will get 6(87.30) + 6(0.65) - 5(87.30) or 87.3+
3.90= 91.20

**Distribute the 6 before adding the numbers in parentheses

\(6(87.30+0.65)−5(87.30) \Rightarrow 6(87.30) + 6(0.65) - 5(87.30)\)

\(87.30 + 6(0.65)\)

\(87.30 + 3.90\)

\(91.2\)

NEW question from GMAT® Quantitative Review 2019


(PS03887)


Let \(87.30 = a\)

So, \(6(a + 0.65) − 5a\)

Or, \(6a + 3.90 - 5a\)

Or, \(a + 3.90\)

Substitute the value of a as 87.30 , We have \(a + 3.90 = 87.30 + 3.90 = 91.20\) , Answer must be (D)

This problem can be easily solved by adding decimal values

6(87.30+0.65)−5(87.30)
=6(.30+.65) - 5(.30)
=6(0.95)-0.50
=0.70-0.50
=0.20

As among the answer options only one value has 0.20
