I've got a question on the Arithmetic to Memorize flashcards.

Is it really recommended to memorize all the multiples of 8 to 160, the multiples of 12, to 120, the multiples of 15, to 150, the powers' of 2 up to 2^7, and the powers of 4 up to 4^4 and 3 up to 3^5?

Or should I just be able to calculate these values quickly. I know this is in excess of what the MGAT books recommend.

Looking for opinions before I dedicate the mental capital to memorize all theses.

HI alextaylor116,

You ask a good question. The answer lies in how quickly you can actually work through the examples that you listed. So, try timing yourself - if you can physically calculate all of those end results perfectly and quickly, then you probably don't need to memorize them. However, if you make mistakes or are 'slow' with that work, then memorizing that information might be helpful to your overall performance in the Quant section.

I would not recommend that. Do not try to burden yourself with memorizing too many things.
As long as you are able to calculate these values quickly, you are good to goo.

Hello bb,

The link is not valid, maybe, as I tried downloading the flashcards several times but could not. Could you please check at your end the validity of link and fix it, if required? Thanks.

In statement 1 m>n no matter we plug in m=2, n=1 or m=3, n=2. RHS>LHS. How did you conclude that statement 1 is insufficient ?
Also I'm having trouble understanding statement2, Can someone kindly decipher it.

Thanks in advance

I loved thanks
I think the card triangles 8 ( ultra hard) should use greater than 1 instead less than 1.

It is a great question which Bunuel solved.
Since I am new, I cannot post the link to the old thread ( ds-triangle-m09q07-72173 )

On page 48, Coordinate Geometry 6 and the corresponding answer, point B has 2 different values. On the Q it is (2,3) and the Answer it is (6,3).

Thank you all for all you do!

You may get better luck/success if you actually paste the contents or take a screenshot if it has formulas/other items that you can't easily copy.
