Total distance=3x
Time B to A= Time A to B+ (1/3)
(2x/30)+(x/10)=(3x/20)+(1/3)
x/60= (1/3)
x= 20 Km
3x= 20*3= 60 Km

Re: Quant Question of the Day Chat [#permalink]
Total distance is distance from A to B + distance from B to A = 2d

Which is 2*60 = 120

E, 100a+10b+c-(100c+10b+a)= 99(a-c)==> b can take any value from 1,2,..9 & 99(a-c) = 7*K, where (a-c) has to be the multiple of 7. It is possible only in 9_2 or in 8_1 case and we can put any of the digits from 9 available ones. Hence, 18 no. of combinations are possible.

Great Question!
We can rewrite the stem as:
3(2+x/1000)>2(3+y/1000)
3x>2y?

1)
The inverse of our choice.Suff.

2) x<y-3
This is where it gets slightly tricky.
First, you have to realize that x and y are digits. That means they can take on a value between 0 and 9 inclusive.
As x cannot be negative, y must be greater than 3 - otherwise the inequality would force x to take a negative value, which is not possible
so y=4,5,6,7,8,9
We can test cases:
if y=4
x<1, x must be 0 - clearly 2y>3x
if y=5
x<2, x must be 0 or 1, in either case 2y>3x
if y=6
x<3, x must be 0, 1, 3 - in any case 2y>3x

and so on
In all cases, 2y>3x.
So B is sufficient as well.

1) a+b is even, in this case say a is 3 and b is -1 then n may not be an integer but if a=3 and b=1 then n is integer --> not conclusive
2) a is even and say b is negative number then n is not integer but if b is positive then n is integer --> again not conclusive.
Same in case of 1)&2) both taken simultaneously.
Therefore both statement not sufficient

Realize this:
n=(s^a)(t^b)
the only way possible for n to not be an integer, is if a or b were negative - otherwise, n will always be some integer as S and T are integers.

1) a+b=even
A or B can be both negative, positive, or a mix. NS.

2) a is even
Again, this does not tell us what the sign of A is. A can be negative or positive

3) all we know is that a is some even integer, and b is some even integer. They can be positive or negative. NS.

Re: Quant Question of the Day Chat [#permalink]
statement 1 : 1<m<2

if

m=1.5 then also it is 1

taking any value between 1 aqnd 2 the [m] will always be 1

but in statement 2 : -1<m<1 if m= -0.2 [m]=-1 and if m=0.2 [m] =0

hence A is sufficient

1) Tells us that m can be some value between 1 and 2.
We can take two cases:
m=1.001
in this case, [m]=1
m=1.9999
in this case, [m]=1

[m] will always be 1 in this range, suff

2) abs(m)<1
-1<m<1
Here we have a few different cases
Say m=-0.5
[m]=-1
But if m=0.5
[m]=0

INS.

They work for a total of t days
Person A will therefore contribute 1/20(d-10)
and person B will therefore contribute (1/30)(d)

which means:

1/20(d-10)+1/30(d)=1
d/20-1/2+d/30=1
d/20+d/30=3/2
3d+2d=90
5d=90
d=18
A

d days, not t days

Great Question!
First thing to notice is that the above inequality will always hold if k is some negative value (since abs has minimum value of 0, which is always greater than any negative number).
You can solve the equation to get more specific ranges:
k<1/5 or k>1/3

1)
Suppose x=2
then we have k>4*8>1/3 (always yes)
Suppose x=-2
k>-32 (maybe yes, maybe no - if k<1/5, yes if 1/5<k<1/3, no)
ins

2) k<-x^2+2x-2
This is a tricky quadratic to factorize. So lets plugin some values:
if x=0,
k<-2, always true
if x=1,
k<-1+2-2
k<-1, target statement always true
if x=2
k<-4+4-2
k<-2 (always true).
if x=-2
k<-4+2(-2)-2
In any case, k is some negative value - which means the target equation must always hold true, as the abs(anything) is 0 or greater.
B should be correct

2nd statement is probably best analyzed graphically - but that might be overkill for most gmat questions haha
