## Answers:

1- **C**

15 dozen of magazines are 180 magazines: \(15 × 12 = 180\)

\(180 – 57 = 123\)

2- **A**

\(probability=\frac{desired \space outcomes}{possible \space outcomes}=\frac{4}{4+3+7+10}=\frac{4}{24}=\frac{1}{6}\)

3-** B**

Find the value of each choice:

\(A. \space 2 × 2 × 5 × 7 = 140\)

\(B. \space 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 7 = 560\)

\(C. \space 2 × 7 = 14\)

\(D. \space 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 7 = 280\)

4- **C**1 ton \(= 2,000\) pounds

5 ton \(= 10,000\) pounds

\(\frac{32,000}{10,000}=3.2 \)

William needs to make at least 4 trips to deliver all of the food.

5- **B**

\(180 – 40 – 50 = 90\)

6- **C**

Each worker can walk 3 dogs: \(9 ÷ 3 = 3\)

5 workers can walk 15 dogs.

\(5 × 3 = 15\)

7- **C**

If \(a = 3\) then:

\(b = \frac{a^2}{3}+ 3 ⇒ b =\frac{3^2}{3}+ 3 = 3 + 3 = 6\)

8- **D**

\(\sqrt[8]{256}\)

\((2^8=2×2×2×2×2×2×2×2=256)\)

9- **B**

(r = radius)

Area of a circle = \(πr^2 = π × (5)^2 = 3.14 × 25 = 78.5\)

10- **A**

\(- 8a = 64 ⇒ a = \frac{64}{-8}= – 8\)
