Hi All,
This DS question is based on pattern-matching with a little bit of "math" thrown in. It's perfect for TESTing VALUES.
We're told that R is a positive integer. We're asked for the TENS DIGIT of R.
Fact 1: The tens digit of R/10 = 3
If….
R = 310, then 310/10 = 31 which fits the given information. In this case, the TENS DIGIT of 310 = 1
R = 320, then 320/10 = 32 which fits the given information. In this case, the TENS DIGIT of 320 = 2
Fact 1 is INSUFFICIENT
Fact 2: The hundreds digit of 10R = 6
If….
R = 61, then 10R = 610, which fits the given information. In this case, the TENS DIGIT of 61 = 6
R = 62, then 10R = 620, which fits the given information. In this case, the TENS DIGIT of 62 = 6
We could TEST additional values, but we have enough information here to prove a pattern: for the hundreds digit of 10R to = 6, the TENS DIGIT of R MUST = 6. The answer to the question will ALWAYS be 6.
Fact 2 is SUFFICIENT
Final Answer:
GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
