If $$n$$ is multiple of $$5$$, and $$n = p^2q$$ where $$p$$ and $$q$$ are prime, which of the following must be a multiple of $$25$$?

A $$p^2$$
B. $$q^2$$
C. $$pq$$
D. $$p^2q^2$$
E. $$p^3q$$

$$n=5k$$ and $$n=p^2p$$, ($$p$$ and $$q$$ are primes).
Q: $$25m=?$$

Well obviously either $$p$$ or $$q$$ is $$5$$. As we are asked to determine which choice MUST be multiple of $$25$$, right answer choice must have BOTH, $$p$$ and $$q$$ in power of 2 or higher to guarantee the divisibility by $$25$$. Only D offers this.

If d is the standard deviation x,y,and z, what is the standard deviation of x+5, y+5, z+5

A. d
B. 3d
C. 15d
D. d+5
E. d+15

TIP:
If we add or subtract a constant to each term in a set:
Mean will increase or decrease by the same constant.
SD will not change.

If we increase or decrease each term in a set by the same percent (multiply by a constant):
Mean will increase or decrease by the same percent.
SD will increase or decrease by the same percent.

So in our case SD won't change as we are adding 5 to each term in a set --> SD=d.

Hope it helps.

P.S. Pleas post one question per topic.
