==> From (n+2)!/n!=156 and (n+2)(n+1)n!/n!=(n+2)(n+1)=156=13*12, you get n+2=13, n=11.
Therefore, the answer is D Adding to this since it's a quadratic we will get 2 solutions 11,14 but since 14 is not an option so n=11 is correct. Sent from my iPhone using GMAT Club Forum mobile app

The standard deviation of which of the following is equivalent with that of \({m, r, p, n}\)? A. {\({2m, 2r, 2p, 2n}\)} B. {\({m+2, r+2, p+2, n+2}\)} C. {\({m, r, p, n}\)} D. {\({\frac{1}{m}, \frac{1}{r}, \frac{1}{p}, \frac{1}{n}}\)} E. {\({m^2, r^2, p^2, n^2}\)} ==> For standard deviation, if the elements move in parallel, they have the same standard deviation. Thus, the standard deviation of {m, r, p, n} is equal to the standard deviation of {m+2, r+2, p+2, n+2}. Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B
