Sandeepanisha  The above given two questions are very similar and I have solved them using two different methods  algebra and assuming a number. You can do both using both methods. I encourage you to try.

Hi Karishma, (ratio) Donuts of r pounds are made by sugars of p pounds. Because there are no sugars, substitutions of t pounds per sugar of 1 pound are used to make donuts. How many pounds of substitutions are used to make donut of 1 pound in terms of p, r, and t? A) tp/r B.) tr/p C) t/pr D.) r/tp E pr/t

It is difficult to guess the actual meaning of the question if one rewrites it in their own words. Thanks. 1 pound sugar = t pounds substitute p pound sugar = tp pounds substitute Donuts r pounds  need sugar p pounds (= substitute tp pounds) Donuts 1 pound  need substitute tp/r pounds Answer (A)

A. 200miles B. 220miles C. 240miles D. 250miles E. 260miles In 1 hr, car A travels 50 miles. Now distance between car A and car B is 490  50 = 440 miles This distance is covered by both together car A at 50 mph and car B at 60 mph When they meet, time taken = 440/(50 + 60) = 4 hrs In 4 hrs, car A would have traveled = 50 *4 = 200 miles In all, car A traveled 200 + 50 = 250 miles

Now let's form the equation> Total students= StudentsFrench + StudentsOnly English + (Students neither French, nor English) 250 = 96 + (80x) + 3x x= 37 (A)

A. 5 min B. 6 min C. 6 and 2/3 min D. 10 min E. 15 min Ratio of speed of jogger & walker = 10:6 Time taken to travel same distance for jogger & walker = 6:10 = 3:5 This 3 corresponds to 10 so multiplier is 10/3. So actual value of 5 is 5*10/3 = 50/3 mins

A. 37 B. 36 C. 39 D. 42 E. 45 Hey sandeepansiha121, Total = n(A) + n(B)  Both + Neither Assuming, number of people who learn Both = x, number of people who learn Neither = 3x 250 = 80 + 96  x + 3x x = 37 Answer (A)

(1) The xintercept of k is 0. (2) The yintercept of k is 0 What is the source of this question? It is not very high quality. Each statement independently tells us that the line passes through (0, 0). So the line can be any line with non zero slope passing through the origin or it can be the x axis itself. But what would we consider the x intercept of x axis? Please send a screenshot of the question and official solution.

The link given above is locked because it is in the wrong forum but I did get to see the question. (Put problem solving questions in PS forum and Data sufficiency questions in DS forum) ABC is a 306090 triangle with sides 5  5*sqrt(3)  10 EDC will be another 306090 but here is the thing  it can have varying area. Say E is very very close to B. Then area of triangle EDC is much smaller than area of ABC. But say length of EC is same as length of AC. Then the two areas will be same. So the difference in the areas will vary. Do put up the official explanation of this question and let me know the source.
