SAT/ACT problem of the week, December 08, 2016 solution

Hint for process of elimination: Go through each of the three statements individually and consider them for validity. Remember that the angles measure of a full circle is 360\textdegree. It also helps to know that supplementary angles two angles whose measures add to $latext 360\textdegree$.

Six adjacent angles

In the diagram of six adjacent angles shown above, which of the following must be true?

  1. The sum of the six angles is 360 \textdegree
  2. All six angles are congruent to each other.
  3. Any pair of adjacent angles is supplementary
  1. I, only (check answer)
  2. II, only (check answer)
  3. I and II, only (check answer)
  4. I and III, only (check answer)
  5. I, II, and III (check answer)

There are 15 classrooms in Sunny Skies High School, numbered 1 through 15. Between classrooms 1 through 10, there are 250 math textbooks. Between classrooms 6 through 15 there are 300 math textbooks. Which of the following could be the total number of math textbooks in classrooms 1 through 15?

  1. 400
  2. 500
  3. 600
  1. I only (check answer)
  2. II only (check answer)
  3. I and II only (check answer)
  4. II and III only (check answer)

SAT/ACT problem of the week, October 20, 2016 solution

Hint for process of elimination: Draw a fast picture of the rooms and try to distribute the books in a way that gives you a total of 400, 500, and 600 books. You may quickly realize that there cannot be a total 600 books in these classrooms, and you may also gain enough intuition about this situation to solve the problem.
