[GMAT math practice question] When the positive integer n is divided by 8, the remainder is 3, and when n is divided by 5, the remainder is 2. What is the remainder when the smallest possible value of n is divided by 6? A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3 E. 4 => If n has remainder 3 when it is divided by 8, then n = 8a + 3 for some integer a. The possible positive integer values of n are 3, 11, 19, 27, 35, … . If n has remainder 2 when it is divided by 5, then n = 5b + 2 for some integer b. The possible positive integer values of n are 2, 7, 12, 17, 22, 27, 32, … . The smallest value of n that appears in both lists is 27. Therefore, the smallest possible value for n is 27. 27 = 6*4 + 3, 27 has remainder 3 when it is divided by 6. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D

[GMAT math practice question] The terms of the sequence {A n} satisfy A 2  A 1 = 2, A 3  A 2 = 5 and A 4  A 3 = 10. Which of the following could be the formula for A n+1  A n, in terms of n? A. n + 1 B. n^2 + 1 C. n^2  1 D. n  1 E. n^2 + 3 => We try each possibility until we find a formula that works. A): If A n+1  A n = n + 1, then A 2  A 1 = 1 + 1 = 2, which is correct, but A 3  A 2 = 2 + 1 = 3 ≠ 5. So, A) is not the answer. B): If A n+1  A n = n^2 + 1, then A 2  A 1 = 1^2 + 1 = 2, A 3  A 2 = 2^2 + 1 = 5, A 4  A 3 = 3^2 + 1 = 10. So, this formula is possible. Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B

[GMAT math practice question] If the sequence {A n} satisfies A n = A n1  A n2, A 1 = 0, and A 2 = 1, where n is an integer greater than 2, then what is the sum of the first 100 terms of {A n}? A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 => We determine the period of the sequence by examining its terms: A 1 = 0 and A 2 = 1. A 3 = A 2 – A 1 = 1 – 0 = 1 A4 = A 3 – A 2 = 1 – 1 = 0 A 5 = A 4 – A 3 = 0 – 1 = 1 A 6 = A 5 – A 4 = 1 – 0 = 1 A 7 = A 6 – A 5 = 1 – (1) = 0 A 8 = A 7 – A 6 = 0 – (1) = 1 A 9 = A 8 – A 7 = 1 – 0 = 1 A 10 = A 9 – A 8 = 1 – 1 = 0 … The sequence has period 6. The sum of the first six terms is A 1 + A 2 + … A 6 = 0 + 1 + 1 + 0 + (1) + (1) = 0. We apply this fact to determine the sum of the first 100 terms of the sequence: A 1 + A 2 + … A 100= ( A 1 + A 2 + … A 6 ) + … + ( A 91 + A 92 + … A 96 ) + A 97 + A 98 + A 99 + A 100= 0 + … + 0 + A 97 + A 98 + A 99 + A 100= A 97 + A 98 + A 99 + A 100= 0 + 1 + 1 + 0 = 2. Therefore, the answer is B.

[GMAT math practice question] If n is the product of 5 different prime numbers, how many factors does n have? A. 2 B. 4 C. 8 D. 16 E. 32 => Since p, q, r, s, t are different prime factors of n, we have n = p*q*r*s*t = p^1q^1r^1s^1t^1. The number of factors of n is (1+1)(1+1)(1+1)(1+1)(1+1) = 2*2*2*2*2 = 32. Therefore, the answer is E. Answer: E

[GMAT math practice question] <x> is the largest integer less than or equal to x and [x] is the smallest integer greater than or equal to x. If x is not an integer, which of the following could be the value of [x]  <x>? A. 1 B. 2 C. 3 D. 4 E. 5 => <x> can be defined in the following way: If m ≤ x < m + 1, where m is an integer, then < x > = m. [x] can be defined in the following way: If n – 1 < x ≤ n, where n is an integer, then [x] = n. Since x is not an integer, there is an integer n such that n – 1 < x < n. So, <x> = n 1 and [x] = n. Thus, [x]  <x> = n – ( n – 1 ) = 1. We can also solve this problem by plugging in numbers. If x = 1.1, then [1.1]  <1.1> = 2 – 1 = 1. Therefore, the answer is A.

[GMAT math practice question] If n is an integer, which of the following must also be an integer? I. n(n+1)/2 II. n(n+1)(n+2)/6 III. n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)/8 A. I only B. II only C. III only D. I and II E. I, II and III => Statement I Since n and n + 1 are consecutive integers, n(n+1) is a multiple of 2. Thus, n(n+1)/2 is an integer. Statement II Since n and n + 1 are consecutive integers, n(n+1) and n(n+1)(n+2) are multiples of 2. Since n, n + 1 and n + 2 are three consecutive integers, n(n+1)(n+2) is a multiple of 3. Thus, n(n+1)(n+2) is a multiple of 6, and n(n+1)(n+2) / 6 is an integer. Statement III Since n and n + 1 are two consecutive integers, n(n+1) is a multiple of 2. Similarly, (n+2)(n+3) is a multiple of 2. Also, either n and n + 2 or n + 1 and n + 3 are consecutive even integers. Thus, either (n + 1)(n+3) is a multiple of 8 or n(n+2) is a multiple of 8 since one of them is a multiple of 4. It follows that n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) is a multiple of 8, and n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)/8 is an integer. Therefore, the answer is E. Answer: E

A 5 = A 4 / A 3 =1/(2) = 1/2 A 6 = A 5 / A 4 = 1/2 / 1 = 1/2 A 7 = A 6 / A 5 = (1/2) /1/2 = 1 = A 1. A 8 = A 7 / A 6 = 1 / (1/2) = 2= A 2. Thus, every 6th term is the same.

Thus, A 100 = A 4 = 1. Therefore, the answer is A. Answer: A

[GMAT math practice question] Alice travels 120 km, the first 40 km at x km/h and the remaining 80 km at y km/h. What is her average speed for the entire trip? A. 2xy/(2x+y) B. 2xy/(3x+y) C. 3xy/(2x+y) D. xy/(2x+y) E. xy/(x+2y) => The average speed is (Total Distance) / (Total Time). The time for the first 40 km is 40 / x and the time for the remaining 80 km is 80 / y. Thus, the total time for the trip is ( 40/x + 80/y ). Her average speed for the trip is 120 / ( 40/x + 80/y ) = 120xy / ( 40y + 80x ) = 3xy / ( y + 2x ) = 3xy / (2x +y). Therefore, the answer is C. Answer : C

A. 1000 / π B. 2000 / π C. 3000 / π D. 4000 / π E. 5000 / π => Attachment:

Case 1: 2πr = 30 and h = 40 r = 15/π The volume is πr^2*h = π(15/π)^2 * 40 = ( 225 * 40 ) / π = 9000 / π. Case 2: 2πr = 40 and h = 30 r = 20/π The volume is πr^2*h = π(20/π)^2 * 30 = ( 400 * 30 ) / π = 12000 / π. Thus, the difference in the two volumes is 12000 / π  9000 / π = 3000 / π. Therefore, C is the answer. Answer: C

[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] There are 3 ways to make the number 12 using products of two positive integers. These are 1*12, 2*6, and 3*4. In how many ways can 2700 be written as the product of two positive integers? A. 6 B. 12 C. 15 D. 18 E. 36 => 2700 = 2^2*3^3*5^2 The number of distinct factors of 2700 is (2+1)(3+1)(2+1) = 36. Since the order of multiplication does not matter (i.e. 30 * 90 = 90*30), the number of pairs of positive integers that multiply to give 2700 is 36/2 = 18. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D
