(A) Five
(B) Four
(C) Three
(D) Two
(E) One



expression can be split into two equations:
1 < 5n + 5 ==> 5n > -4 ==> n > -0.8

5n + 5 < 25 ==> 5n < 20 ==> n < 4

now between -0.8 and 4(excluding) , there exist 4 integers, viz. 0, 1, 2, 3

hence B

\(1 < 5n +5 < 25\)
\(1 - 5 < 5n + 5 - 5 < 25 -5\)
\(-4 < 5n < 20\)
\(-4/5 < n < 4\)

<===(-1)=-4/5=(0)=(1)=(2)=(3)=(4)==> x-axis

is it correct?

5*1+5=10
5*2+5=15
5*3+5=20
5*4+5=25 -->n=4

(A) Five
(B) Four
(C) Three
(D) Two
(E) One

\(1< 5n +5 < 25\) --> subtract 5 from each part: \(-4<5n<20\) --> divide by 5 each part: \(-\frac{4}{5}<n<4\). In this range there are 4 integers: 0, 1, 2, and 3.

Answer: B.


why is it not -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 ?

Because -1 is LESS than -4/5, and n must be more than -4/5.

A table showing values of 5n+1 for various values of n. Just need to note the constraint that 1<5n+5<25 (valid values are in green, invalid in red) and count how many valid numbers there are for n.

1< 5n +5 < 25


-4<5n<20

so n can take 0,1,2,3, totally 4 integers..

i count only 1,2,and 3
for that reason i choose 3 integer

solution: must be count from 0
so, 0,1,2,and 3
so answer: the range of integer 4

The inequality given is 1 < 5n+5 < 25
it can further reduced to -4 < 5n < 20
finally -4/5 < n < 4
So can only take 5 integer values i.e. 0,1,2,3
Correct answer - B

Practice Questions
Question: 50
Page: 158
Difficulty: 600


Solution:

1< 5n + 5 < 25 is a compound inequality. Compound inequalities often need to be manipulated, and we can use the rules of algebra that we already know, to do this. Just as with equations, whatever we do to one part of a compound inequality, we must do to all parts of the compound inequality. Let’s first isolate n within the inequality.

1< 5n + 5 < 25

We first subtract 5 from all three parts of the inequality, and we obtain:

-4 < 5n < 20

Next, we divide both sides of the inequality by 5 and we get:

-4/5 < n < 4

The integers that are greater than -4/5 and less than 4 are 0, 1, 2, and 3. Thus, there are 4 integers that satisfy the inequality 1 < 5n + 5 < 25.

The answer is B.

No, that's not correct. n cannot be 4, since 5*4+5=25 and we are told that it must be less than 25.

1< 5n +5 < 25
n=0 --> 5n +5=5;
n=1 --> 5n +5=10;
n=2 --> 5n +5=15;
n=3 --> 5n +5=20.

Thus n can take 4 values: 0, 1, 2, or 3.

We are also told n is greater than 1, than how can we take 0 and 1 in the answer choice???

We are not told that n is greater than 1. We are told that \(1< 5n +5 < 25\), which is the same as \(−\frac{4}{5} < n < 4\).

Hi!

To avoid getting into the trap of a -ve number and fractions, we can do the following

Given: \(1 < 5n+5<25\) ; Subtract throughout by -1

= \(0 < 5n+4 < 24\) ---> We need all positive integers which satisfies this equation.

= \(4, 9, 14, 19\) are the possibilities

Final answer = four

Should this question be for 600-700 Difficulty range?
I think it should be moved to 500-600 range.

the minimum n can be is 0. The maximum it can be is 3. So n can be anything from 0 to 3. It can be 0,1,2, or 3 for a total of 4 values.
