Question:

What are some ways to get better at reading quickly and efficiently?

The trick that works best for me is to look at the questions before I start reading the passage. This way I have an understanding of what lines and ideas I need to look out for.

Question:

If -9/5 < -3t + 1 < -7/4, what is one possible value of 9t - 3 ?

Step 1: Break the equation into two parts: -9/5 < -3t + 1 and 3t + 1 < -7/4 Step 2: Solve the first part by subtracting 1 from both sides (1) and then dividing both sides by 3 (2). => (-9/5) - 1 < 3t +1 - 1 (1) => -9/5 - 5/5 < 3t (1) => -14/5 < 3t (1) => (-14/5)/3 < (3t)/3 (2) [Note that the sign does not change because you are dividing both sides with a +ve number] => -14/15 < t (2) Step 3: Solve the second part by subtracting 1 from both sides (3) and then dividing both sides by 3 (4). => 3t + 1 - 1 < (-7/4) - 1 (3) => 3t < -7/4 - 4/4 (3) => 3t < -11/4 (3) => 3t/3 < (-11/4)/3 => t < -11/12 Step 4: Consolidate the result: -14/15 < t < -11/12. Since the denominators are not equal, it may be difficult to think of a number in between. This issue can be resolved by thinking about a multiple of both 12 and 15. The easiest way to arrive at this number is by multiplying (-14/15) and (12/12) and multiplying (-11/12) and (15/15). You will arrive at the following result: -168/180 and -165/180. Thus, t lies between -168/180 and -165/180. A possible value of t could be either -167/180 or -166/180.
