Hi All,

This question can be solved algebraically or by TESTing VALUES.

We're given some facts to work with:
1) Magnabulk Corp sells boxes holding D magnets each.
2) The boxes are shipped in crates, each holding B boxes.
3) Magnabulk charges M DOLLARS for each crate

We're asked for the price charged per magnet, in CENTS....

IF....
D = 2
B = 3
M = 12

(2 magnets per crate)(3 crates) = 6 magnets
$12 for 6 magnets = $2 per magnet = 200 cents per magnet

So we're looking for an answer that equals 200 when D=2, B=3 and M=12. There's only one answer that matches...

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

crate has = bd magnates
C crate cost = m dollars = 100 m cents
each magnate cost for each crate = 100 m / bd

Read the question very carefully and know what it's asking. If you chose "D" that would be probably because you skipped details "cents" mentioned in the question stem.

It's a dimensional analysis problem.
Breaking down our variables:

\(d\left[\frac{magnets}{box}\right]\) , \(b\left[\frac{boxes}{crate}\right]\) and \(m\left[\frac{USD}{crate}\right]\)

and we want to find \(x\left[\frac{cents}{magnet}\right]\)

\(x\left[\frac{cents}{magnet}\right]=100\left[\frac{cents}{USD}\right] * m\left[\frac{USD}{crate}\right] * \frac{1}{b}\left[\frac{crate}{boxes}\right] * \frac{1}{d}\left[\frac{box}{magnets}\right]\)

\(x\left[\frac{cents}{magnet}\right]=\frac{100m}{(bd)}\left[\frac{cents}{magnet}\right]\)

Alternative B
