Well, i would say "D" as well.

$= 7 Days *d + Average Items * c * 7 days; cents need to be written in "/100" -->$= 7*d + (XC*7)/100

yea quite an easy question.

Letme elaborate

Total delivery charges per delivery = d* number of days = 7d

total delivery charges per item = c/100

total number of items per day = x
total number of items for the week = 7x

so total delivery charges (for per item condition) = 7xc/100

so total charges = 7d+ 7xc/100

Okay, thanks gurpreetsingh. I wasn't sure the purpose of c/100. I thought the decimals value was already reflected in the variable c ( as in c= .25 cents)

Thanks

Hi All,

While I agree that this question is relatively straight-forward, whenever Test Takers see a drop in scores on Test Day, the reason is almost always SILLY/LITTLE MISTAKES. As such, it's important to be sure that you have the correct answer to a question that you "think" is easy/straight-forward/gettable. This question can be solved by TESTing VALUES.

We're told to calculate the cost of 7 days of deliveries.

On each day, there's a cost for the delivery itself (D DOLLARS) and a cost per item delivered (C CENTS/item). Note the difference in UNITS. During the week, we're told that an average of X items are delivered each DAY.

Let's TEST VALUES:
D = 2
C = 3
X = 10

So, per day, the Total Cost = 2 dollars + 3 cents(10 items) = $2.30 per day For 7 days, that's 7($2.30) = $16.10 Now, we just have to check the answers and find the match IN DOLLARS... Answer A = 7(3)(2)(10)/100 = 420/100 = 4.2 dollars. NOT a match Answer B = 2 + 7(10(3)/100 = 2 + 210/100 = 4.1 dollars. NOT a match Answer C = 7(2) + 10(3)/100 = 14.3 dollars. NOT a match Answer D = 7(2) + 7(10)(3)/100 = 16.1 dollars. This IS a MATCH Asnwer E = 7(3)(2)(10) = 420 dollars. NOT a match Final Answer: [Reveal] Spoiler: D GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made, Rich _________________ # Rich Cohen Co-Founder & GMAT Assassin # Special Offer: Save$75 + GMAT Club Tests
