[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] If r is a positive integer, n=r^3 and 4,14, and 27 are factors of n, which of the following must be a factor of n? A. 16 B. 32 C. 36 D. 48 E. 64 => Since 4 = 2^2,14 = 2*7, 27 = 3^3 are factors of n and n is a perfect cube, the smallest possible value of n is 2^3*3^3*7^3. When n = 2^3*3^3*7^3, 16 = 2^4, 32 = 2^5, 48=2^4*3 and 64 = 2^6 can’t be factors of n. The only answer choice that is a factor of n is 36 = 2^2*3^2. Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C

[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] What is the sum of roots of the equation x^2 – 40x + 399 = 0? A. 19 B. 20 C. 21 D. 40 E. 399 => Let p and q be the roots of the equation x^2 – 40x + 399 = 0. Then x^2 – 40x + 399 = (xp)(xq) = x^2 – (p+q)x + pq. Equating coefficients gives p + q = 40 from the coefficient of x. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D

[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] If n is the greatest positive integer for which 5^n is a factor of 50!, what is the value of n? A. 10 B. 11 C. 12 D. 13 E. 14 => 50! = 1*2*…*5*…*10*…*15*…*20*…*25*…*30*…*35*…*40*…*45*…*50 =1*2*…*(5)…*(2*5)*…*(3*5)*…*(4*5)*…*(52)*…*(6*5)*…*(7*5)*…*(8*5)*…*(9*5)*…*(2*5^2) Since 5 is a prime number, no further factors of 5 appear in the prime factorization of 50!. The number of 5s in the above expansion of 50! is 12. Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C

[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] If 5^{m2}2^{m+2} is an ndigit integer, where m is an integer greater than 2, what is the value of n, in terms of m? A. n=m4 B. n=m2 C. n=m1 D. n=m E. n=2m => 5^{m2}2^{m+2} = 5^{m2}2^{m2+4} = 5^{m2}2^{m2}*2^4 = (5*2)^{m2}*2^4= (10)^{m2}*2^4 = 16*(10)^{m2} = 16*(100…0)= 1600…0 with m2 0’s. 10^{m2} has m2 digits that are 0 and 16*(10)^{m2} has digits including 1, 6 and m2 digits that are 0. Thus, 16*(10)^{m2} has m – 2 + m = m digits. Therefore, D is the answer. Answer: D

[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] If the interior angles of a triangle are in the ratio 3 to 4 to 5, what is the measure of the largest angle? A. 30 B. 45 C. 60 D. 75 E. 90 => Let x, y and z be interior angles of the triangle. Since x:y:z = 3:4:5, we can write x = 3k, y = 4k and z = 5k. Since the interior angles of the triangle add to 180, x + y + z = 3k + 4k + 5k = 12k = 180, and so k = 180/12 = 15. Therefore, the largest angle of the triangle is z = 5k = 5(15) = 75. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D

A. 41/3 B. 41/6 C. 41 D. 210 E. 420 => Now, 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 + … + n^2 = n(n+1)(2n+1)/6 and 1 + 2 + 3 + … + n = n(n+1)/2. So, (1^2+2^2+3^3+…+20^2) / (1+2+3+ …+20) = ( 20*21*41/6 ) / ( 20*21/2 ) = (41/6) / (1/2) = 41/3 Therefore, the answer is A. Answer: A

[ Math Revolution GMAT math practice question] x^4+12x^3+49x^2+78x+40 can be factored as a product of four linear polynomials with integer coefficients. Which of following cannot be a factor of x^4+12x^3+49x^2+78x+40? A. x+1 B. x+2 C. x+3 D. x+4 E. x+5 => Assume x^4+px^3+qx^2+rx+s = (x+a)(x+b)(x+c)(x+d). Then, s = abcd. The constant terms a, b, c and d of the linear factors are factors of the constant term s of the original polynomial. Since 3 is not a factor of 40, x + 3 cannot be a factor of the original polynomial x^4+12x^3+49x^2+78x+40. Therefore, C is the answer. Answer: C

Since 3√2 > 0, we have 3√2 = 3√2. Since 5+√3 > 0, we have 5+√3 = 5+√3 Since 1√2 < 0, we have 1√2 = (1√2) So, √32+3√2+5+√3+1√2= (√32) +(3√2) + (5+√3) (1√2) = √3+2 + 3√2 + 5+√3 – 1 +√2 = 9.

A. 5/14 B. 7/14 C. 9/14 D. 11/14 E. 13/14 => The probability that at least one female is selected is equal to 1 minus the probability that two males are selected. There are 4C 2 ways of selecting 2 males from the four males and 8C 2 ways of selecting 2 people from the group of 8. Therefore, the probability of selecting two males from the group is 4C 2/ 8C 2, and the probability of selecting at least one female is 1 – 4C 2/ 8C 2 = 1 – { (4*3)/(1*2) } / { (8*7)/(1*2) } = 1 – (4*3)/(8*7) = 1 – 3/14 = 11/14 Therefore, the answer is D.

A. 24 B. 30 C. 36 D. 42 E. 48 => When we encounter “at least” in counting questions or probability questions, we should consider complementary counting. The total number of arrangements of the 5 letters is 5!/2! (5! Counts each arrangement of the two Ps 2! times). The number of arrangements with no letter between the two Ps is 4!. Thus, the number of arrangements in which at least one letter lies between the two Ps is 5!/2! – 4! = 60 – 24 = 36. Therefore, C is the answer. Answer: C

A. 1/4 B. 1/3 C. 1/2 D. 2/3 E. 3/8 => Suppose p, q and r are prime numbers. In order for p + q + r to be even, one of them must equal 2, since 2 is the only even prime number. Once 2 has been selected, there are 7 prime numbers remaining from which to select 2 numbers. Thus, the number of selections in which the sum of the 3 numbers is even is 7C 2 = 21. The total number of selections is 8C 3 = 56. Thus, the probability that the sum of the three numbers is even is 21/56 = 3/8. Therefore, the answer is E. Answer: E
