If n is the least common multiple of 18 and 60, which of the following can be the factor of n? I. 24 II. 36 III. 45 A. Ⅰonly B. Ⅱ only C. Ⅲ only D.Ⅰ& Ⅲ only E. Ⅱ&Ⅲ only ==> You get 18=2(3^2) 60=(2^2)(3)(5), and since the least common multiple is the maximum value of the index, and you get n=(22)(32)(5). Therefore, you get I. 24=(2^3)(3) (X) II. 36=(2^2)(3^2) (O) III. 45=(3^2)(5) (O) The answer is Ⅱ&Ⅲ, which is E. Answer: E

If p is the sum of all odd numbers greater than 0 but less than 50, and q is the sum of all even numbers greater than 0 but less than 50, what is the value of pq? A. 24 B. 0 C. 1 D. 24 E. 25 ==> Since p=1+3+….+47+49, from q=2+4+…+46+48, the difference between 3+5+…+47+49 (part of p) and q=2+4+..+46+48 is 1 each, so there are 24. Since there is also +1 at the front of p, you get 24+1=25. The answer is E. Answer: E

A smaller circle is inscribed in a larger circle shown as above figure. If the smaller circle passes through the center of the larger circle, what is the ratio of the area of the region shaded to the area of the larger circle? A. 1/2 B. 2/3 C. 3/4 D. 4/5 E. 5/6 ==> Square of the ratio of the length=ratio of the area. The diameter of the smaller circle is equal to the radius of the larger circle, so the ratio of the length becomes 1:2. Then, the ratio of the area becomes 1^2:2^2=1:4. Thus, if the area of the smaller circle=k, the area of the larger circle=4k. Therefore, the area of the region shaded:the area of the larger circle=(4kk):4k=3:4=¾. The answer is C. Answer: C

A. 14:30 B. 14:00 C. 14:30 D. 15:00 E. 15:30 ==> Since the alarm rings every 15 minutes, it rings 4 times in an hour. Thus, the 15th alarm rings after 3 hours plus 3 times. Since 13th alarm is at 15:00, 15th alarm rings at 15:30. Therefore, the answer is E. Answer: E
