MathRevolution wrote: A ball dropped from a certain height. The height that it reached after rebounding from the floor was 60 percent of the initial height. The height was 292cm when it touched the floor for the third time. What was the initial height? A. 80cm B. 90cm C. 100cm D. 120cm E. 130cm
ANS: If we consider the initial height as x, then from x+2(60%)x+2(60%)^2(x)=292, we get x=100. Hence, the correct answer is C. So initial height is less than the height reached in the third rebound? Strange. Sent from my iPad using GMAT Club Forum mobile app

[GMAT math practice question] Which of the following is equal to x!/(x+1)! + (x+1)!/(x+2)!? A. 1+1/x B. 1+1/(x+1) C. (2x+3)/(x+1)(x+2) D. 1/{ x(x+1) } E. (2x1)/{(x+1)(x+2)} => x! / ( x + 1 )! + ( x + 1 )! / ( x + 2 )! = x! / {x! * (x+1)} + (x+1)! / { (x+1)! * (x+2) } = 1/(x+1) + 1/(x+2) = (2x+3)/(x+1)(x+2) Therefore, C is the answer. Answer: C

[GMAT math practice question] Alice is paid at a constant rate of $x per hour for the first 40 hours she works and $30 for each hour she works after the first 40 hours. If Alice works 48 hours and earns $920, what is the value of x? A. $15 B. $16 C. $17 D. $18 E. $19 => Total pay = (rate for first 40 hours)*40 hours + ($30)*(number of additional hours) x * 40 + ( 48 – 40 ) * 30 = 920 x*40 + 8*30 = 920 x * 40 + 240 = 920 x * 40 = 680 x = 680 / 40 = 17 Therefore, C is the answer. Answer: C

[GMAT math practice question] Which of the following relationships must be inversely proportional to each other? I. Work done and working time II. Speed and Traveling Time III. Profit and Cost A. I only B. II only C. III only D. II and III E. I and II => Statement I Let R be the work rate, W be the work done and T be the working time. Then R = W/T and T = W*R. Therefore, T and W are directly proportional. Statement II Let V be the speed, D be the distance and T be the traveling time. Then V = D/T, and V and T are inversely proportional. Statement III Let P be the profit, R be the revenue and C be the cost. Then P = R – C, and P and C are neither directly nor inversely proportional. Therefore, B is the answer. Answer B

[GMAT math practice question] Alice makes 2digit codes using the 26 letters of the alphabet. Letters may be used repeatedly, and at least one vowel must be used. How many possible codes can she make? A. 235 B. 256 C. 360 D. 625 E. 676 => The number of vowels is 5 (a,e,i,o,u). So, the number of codes is equal to the number of 2digit codes with no restrictions minus the number of codes that contain no vowels. This is given by 26*26 – 21*21 = (26 + 21)(26 – 21) = 47*5 = 235. Therefore, the answer is A. Answer: A

[GMAT math practice question] What is the difference between the average (arithmetic mean) of the first 9 positive integers and the average (arithmetic mean) of the second 9 nonnegative integers? A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3 E. 4 => The first 9 positive integers are 1, 2, 3, …, 9. Their average is 5. The second 9 nonnegative integers are 1, 2, 3, …, 9, since the first 9 nonnegative integers are 0, 1, 2, …, 8. Their average is 5 too. Thus the difference between those averages is 0. Therefore, A is the answer.

We can plugin the numbers from 1 to 10 to find the values of x and y that work. We find that 9^2 + 5^2 = 81 + 25 = 106. So, the two numbers are 5 and 9, and their sum is 9 + 5 = 14. Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B

[GMAT math practice question] How many 5 digit numbers have at least one zero digit? A. 30951 B. 40141 C. 47132 D. 50001 E. 50433 => The number of 5 digit numbers is 99999 – 10000 + 1 = 90000. The number of 5 digit numbers which have no 0 digit is 9 * 9 * 9 * 9 * 9 = 59049. When we encounter the words “at least” in probability questions, we should consider the complementary case and subtract the number of ways it occurs from the total number of possibilities. The total number of 5 digit numbers with at least one zero digit is 90000 – 59049 = 30951 Therefore, A is the answer. Answer A

A. 400 B. 420 C. 450 D. 500 E. 510 => The number of permutations of 7 different letters is 7!. However, 3 of the letters are ‘s’ and 2 of the letters are ‘c’. Therefore, the number of permutations of the letters s, u, c, c, e, s, s is 7! / (3! * 2!) = 420. Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B

[GMAT math practice question] Alice sells apples. She sold at least 10 lb every day last week. If the total weight of apples sold last week was 140, what is the largest possible range of the weights of apples sold on each day last week? A. 40 B. 50 C. 60 D. 70 E. 80 => Since the minimum weight of apples sold is 10, the greatest range occurs for the greatest maximum. The greatest maximum occurs when all but one of the weights sold is 10 lb. If the weights are 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, max, then we must have max + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = max + 60 = 140. Thus, max = 80. The range is max  min = 80  10 = 70. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer : D

[GMAT math practice question] The minimum of the integers x, y, and z is 10 and their average is 11. What is the greatest possible value of their maximum? A. 10 B. 11 C. 12 D. 13 E. 14 => Assume x ≤ y ≤ z. ( x + y + z ) / 3 = 11 and x = 10 We have 10 + y + z = 33 or y + z = 23. In order to have the greatest maximum number, y must be the minimum which is 10. 10 + z = 23. z = 13. Therefore, D is the answer. Answer : D

[GMAT math practice question] If the profit on a product is 20 percent of its sales price, what percent is the profit of the cost price? A. 20% B. 25% C. 30% D. 33+(1/3)% E. 35% => Let P, R and C be the profit, the sales price (revenue) and the cost price of the product, respectively. Then P = R – C. Since P is 20 percent of the sales price, the IVY method tells us that P = 20*(1/100)*R. So, P = (1/5)R or R = 5P. Plugging this into P = R – C yields P = 5P – C or C = 4P. It follows that P = (1/4)C, and P is 25 percent of C. Therefore, B is the answer. Answer B

[GMAT math practice question] Working alone at its constant rate, machine A can complete a job in 24 hours. The work rate of machine B is 1/2 that of machine A. If machine A works on the job for 6 hours and machine B completes the job, how long does it take machine B to finish the job? A. 12hrs B. 16hrs C. 24hrs D. 32hrs E. 36hrs => Suppose W is the total amount of work required to do the job and that RA and RB are the work rates of machines A and B, respectively. Then the original condition tells us that R B = (1/2)R A. Since machine A worked on the job for 6 hours, 1/4 of the job has been done, and (3/4)W is left. The time T that machine B takes to complete the job is T = (3/4)W / R B = (3/4)W / (1/2)R A = (6/4)W/R A = (6/4)*24 = 36. Therefore, the answer is E. Answer: E

[GMAT math practice question] The distance between Alice’s house and Bob's is 120 miles. Alice and Bob travel in opposite directions along the same road, starting at the same time. They meet at a place that is 40 miles away from Alice’s house. If Alice’s velocity is x miles per hour, what is Bob's velocity in terms of x? A. (1/3)x B. (1/2)x C. x D. 2x E. 3x => Let v be Bob’s speed, and let t be the time they take to reach their meeting point. Then xt = 40 and vt = 120 – 40 = 80. Bob travels 80 miles in the time it takes Alice to travel 40 miles. Thus, Bob’s speed is twice Alice’s speed. In terms of x, this is 2x. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer : D
