# 1. N > 1...

# Description

- Type: Quantitative Comparison
- Topic: Algebra
- Inequality
- Supplying Numbers

- Answer:
**D, cannot be determined**

# Explanation

Consider scratch work above.

- Start by Recording What You Know™ and getting your Possibility Matrix™ and answer choices set up.
- We know n has to be greater than 1. We do not know whether n is an integer. Therefore we need to keep fractions in mind.
- We don't know what n is, so we must Supply Numbers™.
- Try something easy. n = 2 (in red)
- For column A, this gives us 250. In B, 215. Column A > Column B. Eliminate answers B and C.
- Let's jump up to a bigger value for n. Let's use n = 10 (in green).
- For column A, this gives us 1250. In B, 1935. Column A < Column B. Eliminate answer A.
**D is the correct answer.**

Before you post, please remember:

**Search for your topic**. A discussion may already be waiting for you!

**Focus on one topic per post**. For example, ask about just one practice exercise rather than two or more in a single post.

**Don’t post copyrighted material**. For example, don't post practice exercises from books or courses that must be purchased. Even some free stuff, including from ETS, may be copyrighted and so shouldn't be posted.
