## How many positive integers less than 1000 are multiples of 5 and are equal to 3 times an even integer?

Hello
how many positive integers less than 1000 are multiples of 5 and are equal to 3 times an even integer?
I recall one time that in order to find multiples of 2 numbers, we have to multiply them. So in order to do this question, we can multiply 5*6 (which 6 comes from 3*2)=30 and 1000/30=33. But can’t we also do 3*4 since 4 is also an even integer?
Thank you

## In an art class, there were just enough staplers, rulers and glue bottles so that every 2 students had to share a stapler, every 3 students had to share a ruler, and every 4 students had to share a glue bottle.

Hello!
In an art class, there were just enough staplers, rulers and glue bottles so that every 2 students had to share a stapler, every 3 students had to share a ruler, and every 4 students had to share a glue bottle. If the sum of the number of staplers, rulers, and glue bottles used by the class was 65 how many students were in the class?
Thank you

## If a and b are integers such that a+b<1000 and a/b=0.625, what is the greatest possible value of b?

Hello Mike!
If a and b are integers such that a+b<1000 and a/b=0.625, what is the greatest possible value of b?
Do we have to convert a/b to a fraction to find the answer? Is there any other way?
Thank you

Hello!

The answer explanation says it has to be Now that Michiko has finished the research because it continues until the present. But shouldn’t the answer be “had finished” since she’s literally finished with it?

## The graph above shows the amount of water remaining in a tank each time a pail was used to remove x gallons of water…

Hello!
This is from the 2007-2008 test released by collegeboard from section 2 question 17.
THe graph above shows the amount of water remaining in a tank each time a pail was used to remove x gallons of water. If 5 gallons were in tank orginially and 5/3 gallons remained after the last pail containing x gallons was removed, what is the value of x?
Thank you!

## The pyramid shown above has altitude h and a square base of side m. The four edges that meet at V, the vertex of the pyramid, each have length e. If e=m, What is the value of h in terms of m?

Hello Mike!
This question is from the blue book test 1 section 3 #19
The pyramid shown above has altitude h and a square base of side m. The four edges that meet at V, the vertex of the pyramid, each have length e. If e=m, What is the value of h in terms of m? I tried plugging in the value for e=6. Then if we form a triangle out of the figure, we get the hypotenuse as 6, the side below as 3. So shouldn’t this be a 30-60-90 triangle? Then h would be 3root3 and then the answer A)?
Thank you

## After going over your book I managed to increase my math score from 520 to 680!

Hello Mike! This is thunderlord
After going over your book I managed to increase my math score from 520 to 680 (which I still don’t think is enough because 680 isn’t an impressive score compared to what my friends and you got). But unfortunately, I am still struggling to finish the sections for math within the time limit…. Nevertheless, I am so thankful for the increase!
Thank you!

## The table above shows the number of consecutive nights that each of five families stayed at a certain hotel during a 14-night period.

Hello Mike! This is thunderlord
This is the question from the 2010-2011 SAT section 6 #8
The table above shows the number of consecutive nights that each of five families stayed a t a certain hotel during a 14- night period.
The days the Liu’s family’s stay,the Benton family’s stay, and Jackson family’s stay (longest) do not overlap are after days 9 isn’t it? So shouldn’t it be on the 10th day since neither family’s stay are there except for the Jackson’s?
Thank you

## Let \$x be defined as x+(1/x) for all nonzero integers x. If \$x=t, where t is an integer, which of the following is a possible value of t?

Let \$x be defined as x+(1/x) for all nonzero integers x. If \$x=t, where t is an integer, which of the following is a possible value of t? (\$ is a symbol in this case)
a) 1
b) 0
c) -1
d) -2
e)-3

Is it d) because with all the other values (when you plug it in) factoring does not work out?
THANK YOU Mike!

## Math Guide 2nd edition page 171 number 20

Hello Mike! This is thunderlord
I have a question on page 171 number 20- In the figure above, a wheel is rolling from left to right without slipping or changing direction. Can you please explain the content of the question and your answer? Thank you so much

## Math Guide 2nd edition pg 152 number 18

Hello Mike! This is thunderlord.
First of all I am sorry to bring this question up again because it has been brought up 2 times already. But I am curious on why E could not be the answer because RS and ST could both equal 9 as the triangle is isosceles triangle. Moreover, RS+ST>RT or 9+9>ST. So can’t anything above (the perimeter) 35 a wrong answer? (pg 152 number 18). Thank you so much for reading!
