Quantative Comparison Question- (30,000,000)(2,000,000) [#permalink] New post 22 Apr 2015, 07:46

Question Stats:

86% (00:23) correct 13% (00:10) wrong based on 51 sessions
Question:

Quantity A: (30,000,000)(2,000,000)
Quantity B: (15,000,000)(4,000,000)

[Reveal] Spoiler:
The GRE calculator will not be able to handle that many zeros.You will want to do this calculation by hand.To make things easier, you cancel as many zeros as you want, as long as you do the same operation to both sides.For instance, you could divide both sides by 1,000,000,000,000 Ju(Just think of this as 1 with 12 zeroes) to get:

Quantity A Quantity B

(30)(2) (15)(4)


Or, just use a bit of logic: 30 million times 2 million is 60 million million ,and 15 million tomes 4 is also 60 million,million
( "million million" is a trillion, but this doesn't matter as long as your sure that each Quantity will have the same number of zeroes.)

One approach is to use the QC strategy of Matching Operations (for more on this useful strategy, see our free video: http://www.greenlighttestprep.com/module/gre-quantitative-comparison?id=1097)

First divide BOTH quantities by 15,000,000 to get:
Quantity A: (2)(2,000,000)
Quantity B: (1)(4,000,000)

Then divide BOTH quantities by 2,000,000 to get:
Quantity A: (2)(1)
Quantity B: (1)(2)

At this point, we can see that both quantities are EQUAL.

For this problem, let us simplify the stem.

For quant A, we can assume \(30*2*10^{12}\)

For qaunt B, we can assume \(15*4*10^{12}\)

then A=B

Ans C
