1< 4n+7 < 200

1-7< 4n < 200-7
-6 < 4n < 193
-1.5 < n < 48.25
Since n is an integer -1, 0,1,2,3…………………48

Total 50

From first constraint

4n+7 > 1

4n> -6

n > -(3/2)

n> -1.5 (n = -1, 0, 1 ,2 3........ upto infinity)

From second constraint

4n+7 < 200

4n< 193

n < 48. 25

n = (-infinity, .......-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, .........upto 48)

Combining the two

-1.5 < n<48.25

n = 1 to 48 (48 integers)
and n = -1 and 0

so 50 integers.
C is the answer

I used a different approach here.
I used for n integers such as 2, 3 and 4. the results of the expression using the numbers for n were 15, 19 and 23. I assumed that the delta would always be 4 so 200/4=50. Hence c the right answer Re: For how many integer values of n will the value of the expression 4n +   [#permalink] 15 Mar 2019, 04:02
