If the distances between two consecutive ticks are the same, what is the value of x? A. \(4^{11}\) B. \(2(4^{11})\) C. \(3(4^{11})\) D. \(4^{12}\) E. \(5(4^{11})\) ==> If you set the distance between two consecutive ticks as d, you get \(d=2(4^{11})(4^{12})=4^{12}2(4^{11})=(42)4^{11}=2(4^{11}).\) Then, you get \(x=2(4^{11})+2d=2(4^{11})+2*2(4^{11})=(2+4)(4^{11})=2(4^{11}).\) The answer is B.

==>The area of parallelogram is base*height. However, since a rectangle is a parallelogram and if one side length is 8 and the other is 7, you get the area of 8*7=56. The one side length of the parallelogram, which is 8, remains the same and the height is less than or equal to 7, so the area of the parallelogram becomes ≤56. Therefore, the answer is I. 47 II. 55 III. 56 all possible. The answer is E. Answer: E

Which of the following is the closest value of x such that \(x^{20}+x^2+0.0000019=0.09\)? A. 0.1 B. 0.01 C. 0.3 D. 0.03 E. 0.003 ==> From \(x^{20}+x^2+0.0000019=0.09, x^{20}\) and 0.0000019 are very close to 0, so you can ignore them, and the equation becomes \(x^2=0.09=0.3^2\). Thus, you get x=0.3. The answer is C. Answer: C

Sent from my SMJ700F using GMAT Club Forum mobile appYes. You are right. The question should be changed as follows. One ball will drop from a certain height. The height it will reach after rebounding from the floor is 60 percent of the previous height. The total travel is 292cm when it touches the floor on third time. What is the value of the original height?
