[GMAT math practice question]

For a positive integer n, if 5^n is a factor of 25!, but 5^{n+1} is not a factor of 25!, what is the value of n?

A. 5
B. 6
C. 7
D. 8
E. 9

=>

25! = 1 x 2 x … x 5 x … x 10 x … x 15 x … x 20 x … x 25
= 1 x … x 4 x 6 x … x 9 x 11 x … x 14 x 16 x … x 19 x 21 x … x 24 x 5 x 10 x 15 x 20 x 25
= 1 x … x 4 x 6 x … x 9 x 11 x … x 14 x 16 x … x 19 x 21 x … x 24 x ( 5 x 5 x 2 x 5 x 3 x 5 x 4 x 5^2 )
= 1 x … x 4 x 6 x … x 9 x 11 x … x 14 x 16 x … x 19 x 21 x … x 24 x (2 x 3 x 4 x 5^6 )

Thus n = 6.

[GMAT math practice question]

There are 5 integers and x≤y≤r≤s≤t. If the median of them is 80 and the average (arithmetic mean) of them is 100, what is the smallest possible value of t?

A. 110
B. 120
C. 130
D. 140
E. 150

=>

In order to have the smallest value of t, we need to maximize x, y and r. Then we have x = 80, y = 80 and r = 80. After that, in order to have the smallest value of t, we need to maximize s and so we have s = 130 and t = 130.

Ans: C

The formula for the sum of squares of integer between 1 and n is n(n+1)(2n+1) / 6 = 1^2 + 2^2 + … + n^2. The is the value of 11^2 + 12^2 + … + 20^2?

A. 2470
B. 2475
C. 2480
D. 2485
E. 2490

=>

11^2 + 12^2 + … + 20^2
= ( 1^2 + 2^2 + … + 20^2 ) – (1^2 + 2^2 + … + 10^2)
= 20∙21∙41/6 - 10∙11∙21/6
= 2870 – 385
= 2485

If n is the product of 3 different prime numbers, how many factors does n have except 1 and n?

A. 6
B. 7
C. 8
D. 9
E. 10

=>

n = p*q*r where p, q and r are different prime numbers.
Then the number of factors of n is (1+1)(1+1)(1+1) = 8 including 1 and n, since the exponents of p, q and r are 1.
Thus the number of factors of n except 1 and n is 8 – 2 = 6.

Answer: A

A. 15
B. 19
C. 20
D. 21
E. 25

=>

nC2 = n(n-1)/2 = 210
n(n-1) = 420
n(n-1) – 420 = 0
n^2 – n – 420 = 0
(n-21)(n+20) = 0
n = 21 or n = -21
n = 21 since n must be positive.

Which of the following inequalities is equal to |2x-|x||<6?

A. -2<x<0
B. 0<x<6
C. -2<x<6
D. -2<x<2
E. -6<x<6

=>

We should split real number of x into two cases x ≥ 0 and x < 0.

Case 1: x ≥ 0
|2x-|x||<6 ⬄ | 2x – x | < 6 ⬄ |x| < 6 ⬄ -6<x<6.
From the assumption of the case, x ≥ 0, we have 0 ≤ x < 6.

Case 2: x < 0
|2x-|x||<6 ⬄ | 2x + x | < 6 ⬄ |3x| < 6 ⬄ |x| < 2 ⬄ -2<x<2.
From the assumption of the case, x < 0, we have -2<x<0.

Thus, we have -2 < x < 6.

Answer: C

A. 2^5
B. 2^6
C. 2^7
D. 2^8
E. 2^9

=>

(1+2^18)/(2^4+2^10) = (1+2^18)/(2^4(1+2^6)) = (1+2^6)(1-2^6+2^12)/(2^4(1+2^6))
= (1-2^6+2^12)/2^4 ≒ 2^8

Therefore, the answer is D.

If 0.010<x-√5<0.011, approximation of 1/√5-1/x is which of the following options?

A. 0.01
B. 0.002
C. 0.02
D. 0.003
E. 0.03

=>

1/√5-1/x = x-√5/x√5

From 0.010<x-√5<0.011, we have 0.010 + √5<x <0.011 + √5.
We have 1/0.010+ √5 < 1/x < 1/0.011+ √5 or 1/0.010√5+5 < 1/x√5 < 1/0.011√5+5.
0.010/0.010√5+5 < x-√5/x√5 < 0.011/0.011√5+5.
The approximation of x-√5/x√5 is 0.01/5=0.002

Thus, the answer is B.

A. x^2+12x+16 = 0
B. x^2-12x+16 = 0
C. x^2+6x+8 = 0
D. x^2-6x+8 = 0
E. x^2+6x-8 = 0

=>
x-5=√x+√5 is equivalent to (√x+√5)(√x-√5)=√x+√5 or √x+√5=1
√x=√5 + 1
x = 5 + 2√5 + 1 = 6 + 2√5
(x-6)^2 = 20
x^2 – 12x + 36 = 20
x^2 – 12x + 16 = 0

Therefore, the answer is B.

(6^3)a+(6^2)b+6c+d=821, where a, b, c, and d are integers from 0 to 5, inclusively, c=?

A. 0
B. 1
C. 2
D. 3
E. 4

=>
821 = 6*136 + 5
136 = 6*22 + 4
22 = 6*3 +4
821 = 6*136 + 5 = 6*(6*22+4) + 5 = 6 * ( 6 * (6 *3 + 4) + 4 ) + 5
= 6 * ( 6^2*3 + 6*4 + 4 ) + 5
= 6^3*3 + 6^2*4 + 6*4 + 5
= 6^3*a + 6^2*b + 6*c + d
Thus a = 3, b = 4, c = 4 and d = 5.
Therefore, the answer is E.

In the above table, scores and numbers of people are shown. If the median score is not represented as the score shown on the table, which of the following scores can be the value of x?

A. 2
B. 3
C. 4
D. 5
E. 6

=>
The sum of numbers for a+1 and a+2 is 15 = 7 + 8. If 2 + 8 + x = 15, we don’t have the median on the table.
Thus, 10 + x = 15 and we have x = 5.

Therefore, the answer is D.
Answer : D
