GRE: Week 124


You know that x is a positive integer. Which of the following statements individually provide(s) sufficient additional information to determine whether the square root of x is also an integer? Select all such statements.

1)      X is the square of an integer.

2)      The square root of x is the square of an integer.

3)      0<x<10


It’s been three years since I left the US and although I am living abroad, I’m still thinking about what I want to do when I go home someday. Not that I’ve figured it out, but I have narrowed down my list of goals and I find myself continually attracted to the idea of grad school.

This might be a bit optimistic, but I am really looking for a program that combines photography, international relations, graphic design, kitten fostering, writing, yarn bombs, gimchi, communication and philately into a concise yearlong program. If the school happens to offer Conversational Spanish for Zookeepers, well of course that would seal the deal.

Thankfully GRE scores are valid for five years which means I have a lot of time to find the right program. And because Sydney has online testing facilities, I can easily book a test any day of the week (I am aiming for early October).

So for those reasons my newest weekend excitement involves the upstairs alcove at Le Petit Tarte and a GRE diagnostic test. It’s been ten years since my calculus class and I don’t exactly remember what an integer is, but I am still feeling confident.

And in case you were wondering, the answer is: 1 & 2. I checked the answer key.

  1. Oh gosh!…. I really, really went with 3) because it just looked sensible. Even though I know you’ll do well, I still want to wish you the best of luck not only with the GRE testing, but with finding the special school that’ll cover you interests. I’m going to have to look up yarn bombs though. What on earth can they be? And how difficult to manufacture?
