Math Revolution and GMAT Club Contest Starts!

QUESTION #4:When the oil from a circular cylinder leaked, the formula for the speed of the leak is V = kh^2, where h was the height of the remaining oil and k was constant. If the height of the cylinder is 2, the speed of the leak is V’, When the height of the oil remaining is 4, what was the speed of the leak, in terms of V’?

A. 2V’

B. 4V’

C. V’/2

D. V’/4

E. V’

This type of question appears within a score range of 45 to 48. It is important to first find the value of a constant like this speed question. According to the question, when the height of the cylinder is 2, the speed of the leak is V’. Therefore, the first step would be: V’=k(2)^2=k4, k=V’/4. Because the question asks for the speed of the leak when the height is 4, the calculation would be: V=k(4)^2=(V’/4)(16)=V’/4. So, B is the correct answer.
