[GMAT math practice question] If x=1 and n is the sum of all prime numbers less than 100, what is the value of x^n+x^{n+1}+x^{n+2}+x^{n+3}+x^{n+4}+x^{n+5}? A. 2 B. 1 C. 0 D. 1 E. 2 => Whatever the value of n is, (1)^n+(1)^{n+1}+(1)^{n+2}+(1)^{n+3}+(1)^{n+4}+(1)^{n+5} = 0, since two consecutive integer n and n+1 always have an odd integer and an even integer, and so (1)^n+(1)^{n+1} = 0. Thus, the answer is C. Answer: C

The edge of the smaller cube is 1 and each face has the area 1. 6*27 means the sum of 6 faces area of the smaller cube times 27 cubes. 6*9 is the number of faces 6 times the area of each face 9. 6*27  6*9 is the answer.

A. 1/6 B. 1/3 C. 1/2 D. 2/3 E. 5/6 => Since events A and B are independent, P(A∩B) = P(A) ∙P(B). The probability P(AB) = P(A)  P(A∩B) = P(A)  P(A) ∙P(B) = 1/2 – (1/2)(1/3) = 1/2 – 1/6 = 2/6 = 1/3. Thus, the answer is B. Answer: B

[GMAT math practice question] In a pin factory, it needs to produce 100,000 pins every day, and 5 machines take x hours to produce 100,000 pins. One day, one of the machines is out of order, so only 4 machines worked. These four machines took x+2 hours to produce 100,000 pins, and each machine’s work rates are the same. What is the value of x? A. 5 B. 6 C. 7 D. 8 E. 9 => Assume T is the time that one machine takes to produce 100,000 pins. 1/x = 5/T and 1/(x+2) = 4/T 5x = T and T = 4(x+2) 5x = 4(x+2) 5x = 4x + 8 x = 8. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D

A. x3<4 B. x3<5 C. x3<6 D. x3>4 E. x3>5 => xa<b ⟺ b < x – a < b ⟺ a  b < x < a + b So, a is the midpoint of the end points a – b and a + b, and b is half the distance between the end points a – b and a + b. The midpoint of 3 and 9 is [(3)+9]/2 = 6/2 = 3. So, a = 3. Since the distance between 3 and 9 is 12, b = 12/2= 6. Thus, x3 < 6. Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C
