# Test #9, Section 4 (Calculator), #18

I’d be curious to hear what you think is the easiest way to solve Test #9, Section 4 (Calculator), #18. A lot of the students I work with find this challenging because the question says p percent (rather than using p as a decimal).

Thanks!

# Hi, Mike. How would you say the two math sections of the SAT are different (besides the obvious calculator use and the timing/number of questions)? I’m thinking in terms of content covered, types of questions, etc. Thanks!

# Which of the following is the decimal equivalent to 2/7?

Hi, Mike! Just curious as to how you would best explain the following question:

Which of the following is the decimal equivalent to 2/7? (Note: A bar indicates a digit pattern that is repeated.)

A. 0. 285714 (all digits after decimal repeat: 0.285714285714…)
B. 0.28571428 (no repeating digits)
C. 0.28571428 (only digits 28 repeat: 0.285714282828…)
D. 0.2857142857 (no repeating digits)
E. 0.2857142857 (only digits 2857 repeat: 0.28571428572857…)

Thank you!

# In the picture, Lines L1 and L2 are parallel, Lines L3 and L4 are parallel…

In the picture, Lines L1 and L2 are parallel, Lines L3 and L4 are parallel, L1 and L3 intersect on the circle, and L2 passes through the center of the circle. The angle theta equals pi/3, and radius R = 6. Find the area of the region A, which lies outside the circle and is bounded within the three line segments. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth. The answer is 29.72. Help!!

# Can you explain a faster way to do PSAT 1 Section 4 #17?

Can you explain a faster way to do this problem rather than figuring out the grams of protein per dollar for each one? Thank you!

The graph above shows the amount of protein
supplied by five different food products, A, B, C, D,
and E, as a percentage of their total weights. The
costs of 10 grams of products A, B, C, D, and E are
\$2.00, \$2.20, \$2.50, \$4.00, and \$5.00, respectively.
Which of the five food products supplies the most
protein per dollar? (question 17, Section 4, practice PSAT)
