U and T can produce 10,000 units in x hours when working together at their constant rates. If U can produce 10,000 units in 4x/3 hours alone at the constant rate, in how many hours can T produce 10,000 units alone at the constant rate, in terms of x? A. 5x/2 B. 4x C. 2x D. x E. x/2 ==> In case of work rate questions, if it is “together and alone”, you solve it reciprocally. In other words, if you assume the time it takes for T to produce 10,000 units alone as t hrs, you get t=4x from 1/(4x/3)+1/t=1/x. Therefore, B is the answer. Answer: B

If n is the product of 3 consecutive integers, which of the following must be true? I. a multiple of 2 II. a multiple of 3 III. a multiple of 4 A. I only B. II only C. III only D. I and II E. II and III ==> The product of 3 consecutive integers always become the multiple of 6, because the product always contains 3 and 2. Thus, in this question, it always becomes the multiple of 6 that contain 3 and 2, I and II are the answer. Therefore, the answer is D. III does not work because it becomes 1*2*3*=6, hence it cannot be the multiple of 4. Answer: D

Which of the following inequalities satisfy (x4) (x+1) >0? A. 1<x<4 B. 4<x<1 C. x<1, 4<x D. x<4, 1<x E. 1<x<1 ==> From (x4)(x+1)>0, you get x4>0, x+1>0 or x4<0, and x+1<0. Then, x4>0 and x+1>0 is x>4 and x>1, which becomes x>4, and x4<0 and x+1<0 becomes x<1 from x<4 and x<1, hence the answer is x<1 or 4<X. Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C

A triangle’s area is S=\(\sqrt{( ((p) )(p) )(pc))}\), where a, b and c are the three side lengths of the triangle and p=(a+b+c)/2. When a=5, b=6 and c=7, what is the area of the triangle? A. 4√6 B. 5√6 C. 6√6 D. 7√6 E. 8√6 ==> If you substitute p=(5+6+7)/2=9 into S=\(\sqrt{√(p(pa)(pb)(pc))}\), it becomes S=\(\sqrt{(9*4*3*2)}\)=6√6. Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C

What is the measurement of one inner angle of the regular octagon? A.\(115^o\) B. \(120^o\) C. \(125^o\) D. \(130^o\) E. \(135^o\) ==> An octagon’s total number of triangle is (82), so the total inner angle is 6*\(180^o\)=\(1,480^o\), and since it is an octagon, if you divide by 8, it becomes \(1,480^o\)/8=\(135^o\)r. Therefore, the answer is E. Answer: E

Therefore, the answer is B. In other words, each elements of B moves +2 in parallel, so the standard deviation doesn’t change. Answer: B

What is the remainder when \(3^5^0\) is divided by 4? A. 0 B. 1 C. 2 D. 3 E. 1 ==> The units digit of \(3^n\) is the repetition of \(3>9>7>1>3>9>7>1\), so you get \(50=4*12+2\). Thus, from \(3^5^0=3^4^*^1^2^+^2\) > \(~3^2=~9\), the units digit becomes 9, and if you divide it by 4, from \(9=4*2+1\), the remainder becomes 1. Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B

m and n are positive integers. If an equation \(x^2+(m2)x(n2)=0\) has only one root, what is the value of mn? ==> For ax^2+bx+c=0 to have only one root, it needs to become discriminant \((D)=b^24ac=0\). Therefore, you get \(D=(m2)^24*1*((n2))=0\), and \((m2)^2+8(n2)=0\). Only m=n=2 satisfies this because m and n are positive integers. Answer: C
