Afc0892 MikeScarnQuestion states - stripe of "g" inches around .........
So once I know the value of g and height of stripe...Can I not calculate the area of rectangle (stripe)?
Not Quite.. This one is tricky. Notice the question says "What is the total surface area of the
stripe?"
So we need to know the
height of the stripe. Not the height of the label.
Don't beat yourself up, I doubt the real GMAT will have wordplay like this. But it's a good lesson to learn to always read
very carefully.
