1.How many positive integers n have the property that both 3n and n/3 are 4-digit integers?
在【3000, 3333】中能够被3整除的数有3000，3003，3006，3009，……，3333。从3001开始，每3个数必然出现一个能被3整除的数，共有333/3 = 111个，加上3000自己，共有112个。答案为B。
2.If Whitmey wrote the decimal representations for the first 300 positive integer multiples of 5 and did not write any other numbers, how many times would she have written the digit 5?
个位是5， 前三位从000-149 （个位是5，不可能是150，超过1500了）都可以，所以是150次
十位是5， 个位只有5和0两种，前两位 00-14, 所以是15*2=30次
3.If x < y < z and y - x > 5, where x is an even integer and y and z are odd integers, what is the least possible value of z-x?
4.If the product of the integers w, x, y, and z is 770, and if 1 < w < x < y < z, what is the value of w + z?
对770做质因子分解，即，2*5*7*11。可得w = 2；z =11。答案为B。
5.An "Armstrong number" is an n-digit number that is equal to the sum of the nth powers of its individual digits. For example, 153 is an Armstrong number because it has 3 digits and 13+53+33=153. What is the digit k in the Armstrong number 1,6, k, 4？
14+64+k4+44=1604+10*k （这里最关键的就是把16k4变成1604+10*k ）
k(k3-10) = 1604-1553=51
6.If n=p2 and p is a prime number greater than 5, what is the units digit of n2?
这种题不需要搞清楚原理。只需随意带入一个满足条件的数即可。例如，p = 7。由此可知，n2为四个7相乘，个位数为1，答案为A。
7.Let S be the set of all positive integers having at most 4 digits and such that each of the digits is 0 or 1. What is the greatest prime factor of the sum of all the numbers in S?
它们的和为8888 = 2*2*2*11*101。最大的质因子为101，答案为E。
8.When the integer n is divided by 17, the quotient is x and the remainder is 5. When n is divided by 23, the quotient is y and the remainder is 14. Which of the following is true?
n = 17x + 5 = 23y + 14，由此可解出17x-23y=9，答案为B。
The addition problem above shows four of the 24 different integers that can be formed by using each of the digits 1, 2, 3, and 4 exactly once in each integer. What is the sum of these 24 integers?
60*(103 + 102 + 10 + 1) = 66660，答案为E。
10.A computer can perform 1,000,000 calculations per second. At this rate, how many hours will it take this computer to perform the 3.6 x 1011 calculations required to solve a certain problems?
11.A school supply store sells only one kind of desk and one kind of chair, at a uniform cost per desk or per chair. If the total cost of 3 desks and 1 chair is twice that of 1 desk and 3 chairs, then the total cost of 4 desks and 1 chair is how many times that of 1 desk and 4 chairs?
Let n and k be positive integers with k ≤ n. From an n × n array of dots, a k × k array of dots is selected. The figure above shows two examples where the selected k × k array is enclosed in a square. How many pairs (n, k) are possible so that exactly 48 of the dots in the n × n array are NOT in the selected k × k array?
要先看懂题目，本题问的是，有多少组(n, k)能保证n × n这个矩阵减去k × k这个矩阵刚好是48个点。由此可得：
n*n - k*k = 48
(n - k) * (n + k) = 48
将48做质因子分解可得48 = 24*3。可以有4组两数相乘的情况：
(2，24), (4，12), (8，6), (16，3)
小的数=n-k，大的数=n+k，因为n-k+n+k=2n, n是整数，所以两数的和只能是偶数, 去掉(16，3) 的组合，剩下3组，答案为C。
13.A car traveled 462 miles per tankful of gasoline on the highway and 336 miles per tankful of gasoline in the city. If the car traveled 6 fewer miles per gallon in the city than on the highway, how many miles per gallon did the car travel in the city?
A certain manufacturer uses the function C(x)=0.04x2-8.5x+25,000 to calculate the cost, in dollars, of producing x thousand units of its product. The table above gives values of this cost function for values of x between 0 and 50 in increments of 10. For which of the following intervals is the average rate of decrease in cost less than the average rate of decrease in cost for each of the other intervals?
(A) From x=0 to x=10
(B) From x=10 to x=20
(C) From x=20 to x=30
(D) From x=30 to x=40
(E) From x=40 to x=50
函数C(x)是一元二次函数，由于0.04>0，所以该抛物线开口向上。对称轴为-b/2a = 106.25。也就是说，在小于106.25的范围内，越靠近106.25，该抛物线的斜率越大，也就是下降率越高，显然选项E更靠近106.25，答案为E。
15.There were 36, 000 hardback copies of a certain novel sold before the paperback version was issued. From the time the first paperback copy was sold until the last copy of the novel was sold, 9 times as many paperback copies as hardback copies were sold. If a total of 441,000 copies of the novel were sold in all, how many paperback copies were sold?
X + Y = 441000 - 36000 = 405000
9X = Y
Y = 364500，答案为C。
16.A certain truck traveling at 55 miles per hour gets 4.5 miles per gallon of diesel fuel consumed. Traveling at 60 miles per hour, the truck gets only 3.5 miles per gallon. On a 500-mile trip, if the truck used a total of 120 gallons of diesel fuel and traveled part of the trip at 55 miles per hour and the rest at 60 miles per hour, how many miles did it travel at 55 miles per hour?
X/4.5 + (500 - X)/3.5 = 120
17.A merchant paid $300 for a shipment of x identical calculators. The merchant used two of the calculators as demonstrators and sold each of the others for $5 more than the average(arithmetic mean) cost of the x calculators. If the total revenue from the sale of the calculators was $120 more than the cost of the shipment, how many calculators were in the shipment?
(300/x + 5)(x-2) = 420
解得x = 30，答案为E。

19.The sum of the ages of Doris and Fred is y years. If Doris is 12 years older than Fred, how many years old will Fred be y years from now, in terms of y?
本题还是要先将题目看懂。题干中的how many years old will Fred be y years from now翻译过来是“y年后， F多大”。
D + F = y
D - F = 12
F = y/2 - 6
F + y =3y/2 – 6，答案为D。
20.If k≠0 and k- (3−2k2)/k = x/k, then x=

During that hour, what was the amount of traffic flow along the street from R to S if the total amount of traffic flow into P was 1, 200?
(Assume that none of the traffic originates or terminates in the network)
24.Machines X and Y run at different constant rates, and machine X can complete a certain job in 9 hours. Machine X worked on the job alone for the first 3 hours and the two machine working together, then completed the job in 4 more hours. How many hours would it have taken machine Y, working alone, to complete the entire job?
X的速率为 1/9，Y的速率为 1/T
7*1/9 + 4*1/T = 1
解得：T = 18，答案为A。

A painter needs a 3-gallon mixture of the paint consisting of 3 parts blue and 2 parts white. What is the least amount of money needed to purchase sufficient quantities of the two colors to make the mixture?
(4 quarts= 1 gallon)
If each side of △ACD above has length 3 and if AB has length 1, what is the area of region BCDE?
(E) 6+ √2
三角形ACD为等边三角形，角A是60度。由此可知AE长度为2，BE长度为√3。三角形ABE的面积为√3/2。三角形ACD的面积为(9/4) √3。四边形BCDE的面积为两个三角形面积相减，答案为(9/4) √3 - √3/2 = (7/4)√3，答案为B。

In the figure above, PQ is a diameter of circle O, PR=SQ, and △RST is equilateral. If the length of PQ is 2, what is the length of RT?
三角形RTS是等边三角形，R是60度。由于PR=SQ，所以RO = OS，连接TO，基于等腰三角形的三线合一属性可知，TO垂直于RS。由于TO是半径，所以TO = 1。根据60度的cos可知，RT = 2/√3，答案为D。
33.A circular rim 28 inches in diameter rotates the same number of inches per second as a circular rim 35 inches in diameter. If the smaller rim makes x revolutions per second, how many revolutions per minute does the larger rim make in terms of x?
