It is true that conditional clause will not contain either 'will or would' in the subordinate clause.

However, I would like to introduce a better solution.

\(x^2+4x-672=0\)

Note that \((a+b)^2=a^2 + 2ab + b^2\)

Hence \(x^2+4x-672 = 0 \implies x^2 + 2 \times x \times 2 + 2^2 = 676 \implies (x+2)^2 = 676\)

Now make Prime Factorization: \(676 = 2 \times 338 = 2^2 \times 169 = 2^2 \times 13^2 = 26^2\)

Hence \((x+2)^2 = 26^2 \implies (x+2)^2 - 26^2 =[(x+2)-26][(x+2)+26] =(x-24)(x+28)=0\)

Although 700 is decent I know it will get me nowhere. All the 3 times my Quant was 51, 50 and 50.

I need to focus on my verbal which has been 27, 28 and 34.

I am thinking of taking the Verbal online course in e-gmat. Will that suffice or should I prefer something else?

There is a one step calculation method too. It requires more thought but is faster.

The man takes 10% more than what he pays for. So if he claims to take 100 pounds, he pays $100 but he actually takes 110 pounds for which he will take from the customer $110. Hence, in effect, there is a 10% mark up.

While selling, he sells 20% less. This means, he claims to sell 100 pounds and gets $100 but actually sells only 80 pounds and should have got only $80 for it. So this is again a mark up of $20 on
