SOLUTION

For which of the following values of n is (100+n)/n NOT an integer?

(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4
(E) 5

\(\frac{100+n}{n}=\frac{100}{n}+\frac{n}{n}=\frac{100}{n}+1=\frac{100}{n}+integer\).

Now, in order \(\frac{100}{n}+integer\) NOT to be an integer \(\frac{100}{n}\) must NOT be an integer, so \(n\) must NOT be a factor of 100. Hence \(n=3\).

Answer: C.

Back solve. Immediately we realize 1,2,and 5 will yield integers. Also, 103 cannot be divisible by 3 since 1 + 0 + 3 is not divisible by 3.

this resolves to 100/n+1 this implies... plugging in 3 does not yield an integer.

100+n/n ==> 100/n + 1, thus, if 100/n is not an integer then the sum will not be Integer...Plugging in numbers.. .we see that 3 satisfies.. Also, 100=2*2*5*5..thus, if the numbers in the answers are not one of these individual numbers/product of these numbers, will be the answer.

At first glance it was obvious to me to eliminate A, B and E answer choices. A quick way to avoid doing much mental math from that point on was to go back to smaller numbers that I knew were divisible and then make a judgement based on that. I started with 3. I stepped back to 99, a very clear multiple of 3. Add 99+3 = 102 which is clearly...not 103. We have our answer with no long division and really nothing more than identifying a clear multiple and adding 3. This allows for a solution in under 30 seconds for me. Hope this helps your speed.

Thinking : Divisibility
Eliminate 5 ,2 1 as these results an ineteger
Solved it by applying number 3 as 103/3 = Decimal
But can solve by just Divisibility rule: sum of all digits should be divisible by 3
mean 1+0+3= 4 cannot be divisble
Here apply the concept then can solve more accurate:):)

Just look at the options

100 is divisible by all except 3

Answer = C

(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4
(E) 5


Solution:

This problem is easiest solved by plugging in each answer choice.

A) (100 + 1)/1 = 101/1 = 101

Answer choice A yields an integer.

B) (100 + 2)/2 = 102/2 = 51

Answer choice B yields an integer.

C) (100 + 3)/3 = 103/3 = 34, remainder 2

Answer choice C DOES NOT yield an integer.

Although we believe answer choice C is correct, we should still test the other answer choices.

D) (100 + 4)/4 = 104/4 = 26

Answer choice D yields an integer.

E) (100 + 5)/5 = 105/5 = 21

Answer choice E yields an integer.

Thus, the correct answer is answer choice C.

(100+n)/n

Replace n with the values and see that only 3 does not divide 100+n because 100+n=103
And to be divisible by 3, the sum of the digits must be divisible by 3 and here 1+0+3= 4 which is not divisible by 3.

Straightaway answer will be (C) 3

\(\frac{(100+n)}{n}\)

\(\frac{(100+3)}{3}\)

\(34.33\)

Thus, correct answer will be (C) 3

The GMAT loves this nice identity: \(\frac{a+b}{c} = \frac{a}{c} + \frac{b}{c}\)

So, \(\frac{100+n}{n} = \frac{100}{n} + \frac{n}{n}\)

= \(\frac{100}{n} + 1\)

Since 1 is already an integer, we can see that 100/n + 1 will be an integer whenever 100/n is an integer.
In other words, 100/n + 1 is an integer whenever 100 is divisible by n.

Conversely, 100/n + 1 is NOT an integer whenever 100 is NOT divisible by n.
Since 100 is NOT divisible by 3, the correct answer is C
