Two DS questions I want to put up for discussion-
1)
If d denotes a decimal is d>=0.5
1)When d is rounded to the nearest tenth,the result is 0.5
2)When d is rounded to the nearest integer ,the result is 1.

2)If n is a positive integer and k =5.1*10^n then what is the value of k?
1)6000<k<500,000
2)k^2=2.601*10^9

I don't know the answers...but I have my own answers....

(1)

$$0.4<d<0.55 \longrightarrow$$ YES or NO

(2)

$$d >= 0.5 \longrightarrow$$ YES

Sufficient

$$B$$.

#2

$$k =5.1*10^n$$

$$m | k$$
$$0 | 5.1$$
$$1 | 51$$
$$2 | 510$$
$$3 | 5,100$$
$$4 | 51,000$$
$$5 | 510,000$$

(1) Sufficient, only one value, 51,000

(2) Sufficient as although we have a quadratic, $$k^2$$ implies +/- and k is positive so it only has one value

$$D$$

Yes,answers match mine with one very small exception-
you have written..
1)0.4<d<0.55 YES or NO
here i think the range will be
0.45<d<0.54
What do you think,,,,

I agree 1) is B
For 2)
Qs => k^2=26.01*10^2n = 2.601*10^(2n+1)
1/ => k=4 (suf)
2/ => 2n+1=9 =>n=4 (suf )
IMO: D
