(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

is it correct?
5*1+5=10 5*2+5=15 5*3+5=20 5*4+5=25 >n=4

Thus n can take 4 values: 0, 1, 2, or 3. Check here: howmanyintegersnaretheresuchthat15n139474.html#p1124669

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.

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

Bunuel wrote: How many integers n are there such that 1< 5n +5 < 25? (A) Five (B) Four (C) Three (D) Two (E) One 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.

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 600700 Difficulty range? I think it should be moved to 500600 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.
