Re: GMAT Maths

Hello Paloma,

That's a great question. The amount of time it takes to prepare for the GMAT varies from student to student. Everything depends on your pace of learning and studying regime. If you dedicate enough time to your studies you should be able to prepare within 2-4 months. In order to score high on the quantitative section you need to be persistent about doing practice questions. You also need to make sure that you understand the format of the questions and become familiar with the type of questions the GMAT might ask. There are certain quantitative skills that will absolutely be necessary for the exam and you need to hone these skills before taking the exam. Since this is a timed exam there are also certain tricks and strategies that would help you efficiently answer these questions as fast as possible. If you are interested in finding a test prep program to get you started on your GMAT studies, you can contact us anytime. If you have any additional questions, I'd be happy to help.

Re: Arithmetic Homework

Hello fogundiy,

Below is the answer to the problem with an explanation from our senior
Manhattan Review instructor, George:

Answer to Question 42 is (E):

First figure out which are the cheapest roses. The first bunch is $4.30
per rose, the second is $3 per rose, the third is $50/12 per rose. The
third is obviously the cheapest.

Clearly, to purchase the maximum number of roses, almost all of the
roses will have to be of the cheapest sort. How many can you purchase
for $680? Divide 680 by 25/12. That comes to 326.4. Look among the
answer choices. How much will 324 of the cheapest cost? The answer is
$675. Therefore, we have $5 left over. We can buy an additional rose.
There is only one answer that is greater than 324, and that's (E), which
is 325.

Re: Arithmetic Homework

Hello fogundiy,

Below is the answer to the problem with an explanation from our senior
Manhattan Review instructor, George:

Answer to Question 38 is (D):

Draw a pipe of length of 1 yard. You have to mark it out in 1/4s and
1/3s. Express that in terms of a common denominator, namely, 12. Thus,
1/4 is 3/12 and 1/3 is 4/12.

Start marking out the pipe. The first marker is 3/12, the second is
4/12, the third is 6/12, the fourth is 8/12, the fifth is 9/12, the
sixth is 12/12. Start cutting the pipe at each of the markers. The first
portion will be 3/12 or 1/4. The second portion will be 4/12 minus the
3/12 that has already been cut off, i.e., 1/12. The third portion will
be 6/12 minus the 4/12 that has already been cut off, i.e., 2/12 or 1/6.
The fourth will be 8/12 minus 6/12, i.e., 2/12 or 1/6. The fifth
will be 9/12 minus 8/12, i.e. 1/12. The sixth will be 12/12 minus 9/12,
i.e. 3/12 or 1/4.

There are thus only three distinct pipe lengths: 1/4, 1/6 and 1/12.
Answer (D).
