During the first 3 weeks of a 10-week diet program, Bob lost an average of 5 pounds per week. During the final 7 weeks of the program, he lost an average of 2 pounds per week. If he lost the same amount of weight during the first 3 weeks of the program as during the last 3 weeks of the program, how much weight had Bob lost after the seventh week of the diet program ?
(A) 15
(B)12
(C)14
(D)16
(E)13

The official answer says :
His total loss during 1st 3 weeks 15 pounds. This is also the amount of weight he lost during the last three weeks. Thus, his total weight loss during all but the fourth through seventh weeks was 30 pounds.
Given that he lost 29 pounds altogether during the 10 weeks [(3*5)+(7*2)], he must have gained 1 pound during the fourth through seventh week. Accordingly, he had lost 14 pounds (-15+1) after the first seven weeks. so the Answer is (C) . :-D

need opinions. will publish my solution soon


in first 3 weeks lost = \(5+5+5 =15\)
in last 7 weeks lost = \(2+2+2+2+2+2+2 = 14\)
in last 3 weeks lost = same as first 3 weeks = \(15\)

therefore lost in FIRST 7 weeks = lost in first 3 + lost in last 7 - lost in last 3 = \(15 + 14 - 15 =14\)
hence C

but the question is " how much weight had Bob lost after the seventh week " not lost in 1st 7 weeks :(

Actually the question is not clear. It should say how much weight did the fatty lose by the end of week 7 or something along those lines

Not GMAT quality questions

Answer = C = 14

First 3 weeks, weight lost = 15 pounds

Next 4 weeks, he gained weight = 1 pound

SO total weight lost after 7 weeks = 15-1 = 14

hence C


but the question is " how much weight had Bob lost after the seventh week " not lost in 1st 7 weeks :(

I think the question asks that how much of weight is lost from the start of the diet program to end of the seventh week. It the question were asking about the wight lost in the last 3 weeks, then the question would have been "how much of weight is lost after the 7th week till the end of the program? / how much of weight is lost between the 8th week and the end of the program ".
