If S is the product of the integers from 1 to 100, inclusive, and T is the product of the integers from 1 to 101, inclusive, what is 1/S+1/T in terms of T ?

A)T/101
B)T/100+100
C)100+T/T
D)102/T
E)T+1/100

Answer:

Given: S=100! and T=101!.

1/S+1/T=1/100!+1/101!=101+1/101!
=102/T.

....

This part I fully understand: 1/100!+1/101!
But I am a little confused how this was determined: 101+1/101!
How are those "!" taken out on the numerator to get 101 and 1?

Can someone show me in detail please?

If S is the product of the integers from 1 to 100, inclusive, and T is the product of the integers from 1 to 101, inclusive, what is 1/S+1/T in terms of T ?

A. \(\frac{T}{101}\)
B. \(\frac{T}{100}+100\)
C. \(\frac{100+T}{T}\)
D. \(\frac{102}{T}\)
E. \(\frac{T+1}{100}\)

Given: S=100! and T=101!.

\(\frac{1}{S}+\frac{1}{T}=\frac{1}{100!}+\frac{1}{101!}=\frac{1}{100!}+\frac{1}{100!*101}=\frac{101+1}{100!*101}=\frac{101+1}{101!}=\frac{102}{T}\).

Answer: D.

B)T/100+100
C)100+T/T
D)102/T
E)T+1/100



You can also substitute T for S right away to get the expression in terms of T.

Given: S=100! and T=101! Therefore, S = T/101

1/S+1/T = 101/T + 1/T = 102/T

Nothing much to add. Just another method which might work for those who don't have enough time to understand/solve this question. ALL the options are more than 1, except D. The given expression 1/S+1/T will also be much much less than 1. Thus answer is D.

S+T/ST???

100!+101!/ (100!)(101!)
=102/101! So D
