NEW question from GMAT® Official Guide 2019


(PS05239)



60.2 is nearest to 60
1.03 is nearest to 1
4.86 is nearest to 5

60/1*5
=12
Thus the best answer is B.

Solution



To find:
    • The option having the closest value of the expression \(\frac{60.2}{1.03*4.86}\)

Approach and Working:
As the question is asking for the closest value and not the exact value, we can approximate the values of the individual terms to get the closest value
    • 60.2 ~ 60
    • 1.03 ~ 1
    • 4.86 ~ 5

Hence, we can write the given expression as:
    • \(\frac{60.2}{1.03*4.86} = \frac{60}{1 * 5} = \frac{60}{5} = 12\)

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B

1.03 is a little bit BIGGER than 1
4.86 is a little bit SMALLER than 5
So, (1.03)(4.86) will be CLOSE TO (1)(5), aka 5

So, 60.2/(1.03 x 4.86) ≈ 60/(1.03 x 4.86)
≈ 60/5
≈ 12

Answer: B

Cheers,
Brent

Estimating, we have:

Answer: B

by approximation 60.2=60, 1.03=1, 4.86=5
so,
\(\frac{60}{1*5}=12\)

[1] Approximate Values:
60.21 = ~60
4.86 = ~5
1.03 = ~1

[2] Solve:
60/(1*5)
= 60/5
= 12
