    I don't understand what the first question is even asking to be honest, it seems incomplete.

    The second question: The first statement only implies that if we plug in \(a\ne0\) that \(b \ne 0\) which doesn't specify anything on its own, we still have any other combination we can pick for a and b. The second statement is identical to the question's statement, just add 9b to both sides and multiply both sides by 5. So it doesn't give us any new information either.

    This is the first time I see this kind of question. I don't know what the goal of the problem. What am I supposed to do?

    I interpreted this as asking if we had enough information to solve uniquely for the value of a and b.

    Well the question is literally asking if that statement is true which is basically identical to my statement that a=b or a=/=b. We can't determine the truth value of it based on the information given so yes, the last answer is correct.

    I really don't understand how I can play with the symbols in 6 to get some better than what I already said like is there any other way to read <x>=x+x/2-2 if that is really what they meant to write and it has to be <w>=10 in order to even find w

    ok I think number 6 should not have that -2 there: the answer is 20/3 \[<x>=x+\frac{x}{2} \\ <w>=w+\frac{w}{2} =10 \\ \frac{3w}{2}=10 \\ w=\frac{2(10)}{3}=\frac{20}{3}\]

    Ok for some reason 8 is D.... I thought we were suppose to pick 1 or 2 or both to see which implied y<0 well if -5y>0 then y<0 but if -y^5<0 then y^5>0 and so y>0 so I don't see how 8 is D

I _think_ they are asking whether statement (1) alone implies 5a-9b=0 (P). Or if (2) alone implies P. Or if (1) and (2) implies P. etc. In this case 25a = 45b does imply 5a-9b = 0, so (B) is true.

    this is silly. First. If it is an operation (binary?) then it is a function from some AxAxA.... into some set B, depending if it is unary, binary, ...... Since it is implied that we can perform this operation on one value w, then it must be unary. So we have a function f:A->B. Now lut us rephrase the questions We have a function f s.t. f(x) =x+x/2+2 when x<= 10. Now the fact that x<= 10 implies that the set A is a subset of R. So that f(w) is not defined.

    But ok let us say there is some set A, s.t. w,10 are both in A. Well now we can have the function be defined for both 10 and w. But then the question is, what is the value of w. which of course we do not know since we argued that this set must contain 10 and w and we were not given the definition of the set, so this cant be a function as they come with a rule by definition.

    @zzk0ck3r When you have time, please continue your argument. @myininaya Thanks for trying. You tried on it and got 100. So that you didn't know what is going on when you get wrong. If you get something wrong, you have no way to know which one is wrong and how to fix it. Because they give you the score and the percentage only, no explanation, no point out the wrong answer. Anyway, that is the good site to practice solving basic math problems in shortest time. I am looking for GRE for math students. If you know some free site, please send me the link. Much appreciate. :)

    For a function, you must not only have it be well defined and defined everywhere, you must have a rule for the map. In the second case we have no way of assigning that rule to w because we dont know what w is :)

    A function is a set of ordered pairs and without the rule we cant make the pairs, so we don't have a function, so we don't have an operation.
