It’s well known that a company's profit=10,000x50x^2, where x is the number of workers. If the profit of the company is the greatest, what is the value of x? A. 5 B. 10 C. 50 D. 80 E. 100 ==> From \(y=f(x)=ax^2+bx+c\), if \(x=\frac{b}{2a}\), f(x) becomes either maximum or minimum. Thus, profit=\(50x^2+10,000x\), and in order for the profit to become the greatest, you get \(x=\frac{10,000}{2(50)}=100\). The answer is E. Answer: E

When a certain coin is flipped, the probability that the coin will land on head or tail is 1/2 each. If the coin is flipped 4 times, what is the probability that it will land on tail at least twice on 4 flips? A. \(\frac{3}{8}\) B. \(\frac{1}{16}\) C. \(\frac{1}{2}\) D. \(\frac{5}{8}\) E. \(\frac{11}{16}\) ==> In general, you solve probability questions using nCr combination. In other words, from TTHH, there are (4!/2!/2!)=6 possibilities, so you get (1/2)(1/2)(1/2)(1/2)*6=3/8. From TTTH, there are (4!/3!)=4 possibilities, so you get (1/2)(1/2)(1/2)(1/2)*4=1/4. From TTTT, there is only 1 possibility, so you get (1/2)(1/2)(1/2)(1/2)=1/16 and (3/8)+(1/4)+(1/16)=(6+4+1)/16=11/16. The answer is E. Answer: E

II and III only ==> From n=m(m+1)(m+2) , where m=integer, the product of 3 consecutive integers is always a multiple of 6. Thus, I and II is always true. For III, if m=1, from n=(1)(2)(3)=6, it is not a multiple of 4, hence it is false. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D
