Area of entire medallion = pi (r^2)
Area of glass = pi(r-s)^2

Area of metal frame
= pi(r^2) - pi(r-s)^2
= pi(r^2) - pi(r^2-2rs+s^2)
= 2pi(rs) - pis^2
= pi(s) [2r - s]

Ans E

----------------------------------------------

St1:
sufficient. tells us hundredth digit is 7.

St2:
sufficient. tells us that that the hundreth digit is 7.

Ans D

-----------------------------------------------

Answer has to be 5, since sqrt(5) would be larger than 2 and that would result in an imaginary number.
------------------------------------------------

St1:

For 1/k-1 > 0, k > 1, so 1/k < 0. Sufficient.

St2:

For 1/k+1 > 0, k must be positive since -1 is not a valid possibility. So 1/k < 0. Sufficient.

For the last question - Question 5

B is insufficent becuase K could be -1/2 and the answer is still greater than 0.

for the root question basically we need to find the number whose root
i greater than 2, in that case root of 2- number greater than 2 will be negative

all values exceot 5 give positive value for 2 - root of number

answer E root of 4 is greater tahn 2

so 2- root of 5 is negative

Can you expand on #20? How exactly does each stmt show that the hundreths digit is greater than 5? I am not seeing it.

Thanks for your addl help
