EXPLANATION

1) Answer: C

The average of the three variables is (a + b + c)/3. However, we need to solve in terms of a, which means we must convert b and c into something in terms of a.

We’re told that a = (1/4)b, which is equivalent to b = 4a. We can plug that in and simplify the average to: (a + 4a + c)/3

We also know that c = 7a, which we can plug directly into the average expression:

(a + 4a + 7a)/3

= 12a/3 = 4a, choice (C).

2) Answer: C

Statement (1) is insufficient. If the denominator of the fraction is 3, the decimal would be terminating if the numerator is a multiple of 3. For instance, 6/3 = 2, a terminating decimal. However, if the numerator is not a multiple of 3, it will not be terminating, as in 7/3 = 2.33.

Statement (2) is also insufficient. The important factor in determining whether a fraction is equivalent to a terminating decimal is the denominator. If j = 9, the fraction could be 9/3 (terminating) or 9/7 (not terminating).

Taken together, the statements are sufficient. j/k is equal to (3(integer))/3 = integer. An integer is, as defined in the question itself, a terminating decimal. Choice (C) is correct.

3)

4) Answer: E

Call the number of baseballs s, the number of basketballs k, and the total cost of the balls t. Ths, the total cost of the balls purchased is:

2.5s + 5.5k = t

Statement (1) is insufficient. It tells us that s = (1/3)(s + k). Combined with the equation given in the question, we have two equations and three variables. That’s not enough to solve.

Statement (2) is also insufficient. It says that k = 2s. Again, combined with the equation in the question, we have two equations and three varaibles.

Taken together, the statements are still insufficient. It may look like we have three equations now, but the equations given by the two statements turn out to be equivalent. Simplify the equation from (1):

s = (1/3)(s+k)

3s = s + k

2s = k

That’s the same as the equation in (2). Thus, we only have two equations, but there are still three variables (s, k, and t). Choice (E) is correct.

5) Answer: C

Since a @ b = a^b + b, x @ 3 = x^3 + 3. Now we can turn to more traditional algebra:

x^3 + 3 = 2

x^3 = -1

x = -1, choice (C).

6) Answer: C

Statement (1) is insufficient: if x = 1 and y = 6, xy is less than 7; if x = 3 and y = 4, xy is greater than 7.

Statement (2) is also insufficient: if you take the smallest possible numbers, x = 1 and y = 2, xy is less than 7; if you take the largest possible numbers, x = 3 and y = 4, xy is greater than 7.

Taken together, the statements are sufficient. Given the ranges for x and y in (2), the only possible pair of numbers that sums to 7 is x = 3 and y = 4. If you choose a smaller value for x, y would have to be bigger, and (2) precludes that possibility. The same is true if you try a smaller value for y. Thus, there’s only one possible pair of numbers for x and y, and the product is greater than 7. Choice (C) is correct.

7) Answer: D

Important to note is that all marbles must be used. The question gives variables for the numbers of red and blue marbles in each bag to indicate that the number of each color marble in each bag is equal, so if one bag has, say, 7 blue marbles, every bag has 7 blue marbles.

This drastically reduces our options. For instance, the number of bags must be a factor of 84, limiting us to 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 12, 21, 28, 42, and 84. That’s still quite a few options, but of course not all of these will work, since we also have to consider the 30 blue marbles. The number of bags also must be a factor of 30: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, or 30.

The number of bags, then, must be a member of both of those lists: 1, 2, 3, or 6. We’re looking for the maximum number of bags that could be created, so we take the largest number from the list, 6, choice (D).

8) Answer: D

Statement (1) is sufficient: a square inscribed in a circle always has the same relationship with the circle. The diagonal of the square is the diameter of the circle, so you can work out the exact relationship and determine the ratio between the sizes of the figures, which allows you to answer the question.

Statement (2) is also sufficient: if you have the ratio of the areas, you can determine the ratio of the side of the square to the radius of the circle, from which you could compare the perimeter and the circumference of the figures. Choice (D) is correct.

9) Answer: B

Consider each choice. (A) is possible; for instance, 6 + 7 + 8 = 21. (B) is impossible, so it is correct. An integer with only even prime factors cannot have 7 as a prime factor; if it doesn’t have 7 as a prime factor, it can’t yield an integer when divided by 7. (C) is possible: If either of the odd integers is 7 or divisible by 7, the result is also divisible by 7. (D) is possible: for example, 56 is divisible by both 7 and 8. Finally, many even integers are divisible by 7 (28, 42, etc.), so (E) is possible as well. (B) is the correct choice.

10) Answer: C

Within the scope of GMAT math, there is no way to simplify t^3 - m^3, so in order to answer the question, we’ll need the values of both t and m.

Statement (1) is insufficient. We can factor and find that (t + m)(t - m) = 18, but that doesn’t give us what we need.

Statement (2) is also insufficient. Two variables and one equation isn’t enough to solve for the variables.

Taken together, the statements are sufficient. If t - m = 2, we can substitute that into the factored version of (1):

(t + m)(2) = 18

t + m = 9

Now we have two equations and two variables:

t + m = 9

t - m = 2

Add the equations:

2t = 11

t = 5.5

From there, we can find m and answer the question. No need to do the rest of the math, and the answer is (C).
