Hi All,
The answer choices in this question are 'spread out' enough that we can get the correct answer without having to do too much math.
We're given the 'recipe' for making Perfect Pink paint: 3/4 pint of red paint and 2/3 pint of white paint
3/4 = .75 pints
2/3 = .66666 pints
These two fractions are relatively close to one another, so when we make Perfect Pink paint, a little MORE than half will be red and a little LESS than half will be white. Since we're only making 34 pints of this paint (which is not a lot), the total amount that will be red paint will be just a little more than half of 34 - so a little more than 17. There's only one answer that makes sense...
Final Answer:
GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
