1- 84
$$120 × \frac {70}{100} = 84$$

2- 30
Let $$x$$ be the number. Write the equation and solve for $$x$$.
$$\frac{2}{3} ×18= \frac{2}{5} . x ⇒ \frac{2×18}{3}= \frac{2x}{5}$$ , use cross multiplication to solve for $$x$$.
$$5×36=2x×3 ⇒180=6x ⇒ x=30$$

3- $$p^9$$
$$(p^4). (p^5) = p ^{4 +5} = p^9$$

4- 290
If $$a = 8$$, then: $$4a^2 + 3a + 10 ⇒ 4(8)^2 + 3(8) + 10 ⇒ 4(64) + 24 + 10 = 290$$

5- $$15\%$$
The question is this: 530.40 is what percent of 624?
Use percent formula:
$$part =\frac{ percent}{100} × whole$$
$$530.40 =\frac{ percent}{100} × 624 ⇒ 530.40 = \frac{percent ×624}{100} ⇒53040 = percent ×624 ⇒$$
$$percent = \frac{53040}{624} = 85$$
530.40 is $$85 \%$$ of 624. Therefore, the discount is: $$100\% – 85\% = 15\%$$

6- 36
Let $$x$$ be the smallest number. Then, these are the numbers:
$$x, x+1, x+2, x+3, x+4$$
$$average = \frac{sum of terms}{number of terms} ⇒ 38 =\frac{ x+(x+1)+(x+2)+(x+3)+(x+4)}{5}⇒38=\frac{5x+10}{5} ⇒ 190 = 5x+10 ⇒$$
$$180 = 5x ⇒ x=36$$

7- $$5^3$$
$$5^{\frac{7}{3}} × 5^{\frac{2}{3}} = 5^{\frac{7}{3} + \frac{2}{3}} = 5^{\frac{9}{3}} = 5^3$$

8- 152.66
Underline the hundredths place: $$152.6\underline{5}88$$ Look to the right if it is 5 or bigger, add it by 1. Then, round up to 152.66

9- 35
$$a + b + c = 45$$
$$\frac{a+b+c+d}{4} = 20 ⇒ a+b+c+d = 80$$
$$⇒ 45 + d = 80 d = 80 – 45 = 35$$

10- 2660
$$45×124=5580$$
Payable amount is:
$$8240-5580=2660$$
