# Quant 2nd Edition – PS Questions 51-60

Question 51 – “A certain fishing boat…”

OG Explanation is fine.   Alternatively \$480/6 = \$80 which is the amount each person must pay in total.   If each person contributed \$150 in the down payment, then each person put \$25 (i.e. \$150/6 = \$25.   Now, the amount each person still owes is equal to \$80 – \$25 which equals \$55.

Question 52 – “Craig sells major…”

OG Explanation is sufficient.

Question 53 – “What number when…”

OG Explanation is fine.   Alternatively, we could look at the fractions. Question 54 – “If 3 pounds of dried…”

OG Explanation is fine.   You could pick number and see which answer choice works but I think direct algebra approach is faster for this question.

Question 55 – “Which of the following…”

OG Explanation is fine

Question 56 – “In the table above…”

OG Explanation is fine.   To see this visually: Question 57 – “If (t-8)…”

OG Explanation is okay.   If  (t-8) is one factor, the other factor is (t+6) in order to get a -48.    Using FOIL, (t+8)(t-6) = t2-2k+48.   Thus k=2.   The answer is C.

Question 58 – “31/125”

OG Explanation is fine.

Question 59 – “Members of a social club…”

OG Explanation is fine.

Question 60 – “1/….”

OG Explanation is fine.
