GMAT/GRE - Math Discussion
« on: January 17, 2013, 04:19:44 PM »
Dear Attendees,

Both for the teachers and the students, it is a must to sit for GMAT/GRE exam for higher education. This post is created in a view to discussing mathematical problems and related queries. I expect everyone's spontaneous participation and brain-storming.

good one indeed to remember the trigonometric formulation. From my point of view, such theorems will be helpful in GRE exam instead of GMAT. Truly speaking, such funny but informative ways help exam candidates memorize things in an effective way.

Column A results in -81 and Column 2 results in 81. Thus B is the answer as the column B is greater.

well, here i must say E. The absolute value of X indicates that X could be both positive and negative. Thus it cannot be determined whether X or Y is larger.

Sorry, Hadi sir, here x can accept any integer (positive and negative), but y take only positive value.
So elements of x is greater than y.
So answer is A.

Dear Tree

I know this is very hard for the student. But you have to know that it is GRE/GMAT section. So you have to give more concentration to solve the problem.

I want to give thanks to you for interest. Go ahead. If you face more problem then you can come to my room (Faculty 2, Prince Plaza). I think it would help you for your improvement.
