A. $$x = \frac{13}{A}$$

B. $$x = \frac{A}{13}$$

C. $$x=A+13$$

D. $$x=A-13$$

## Answers:

1- C
The slope of the line is:
$$\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1 }= \frac{8 – 4}{2 – 0}=\frac{4}{2}=2$$
The equation of a line can be written as:
$$y-y_0=m(x – x_0 )→y-4 = 2(x – 0)→y-4 = 2x→y = 2x + 4$$

2- D
Volume of a $$box = length × width × height = 6 × 7 × 9 = 378$$

3- B
$$Probability = \frac{number \space of \space desired \space outcomes}{number \space of \space total \space outcomes}=\frac{15}{14+15+16+20}= \frac{15}{65}=\frac{3}{13}$$

4- D
In any rectangle, sides are not perpendicular to diagonals.

5- C
Let y be the width of the rectangle. Then; $$15×y=90→y=\frac{90}{15}=6$$

6- D
$$4×\frac{3}{5}=\frac{12}{5}=2.4$$
$$2.4>2$$
$$2.4<3$$
$$\frac{75}{31}=2.419≠2.4$$
$$2<2.4<2.5$$ This is the answer!

7- C
Let’s compare each fraction:
$$\frac{2}{7}< \frac{3}{8}< \frac{5}{11} < \frac{3}{4}$$
Only choice C provides the right order.

8- B
To find the discount, multiply the number ($$100\%$$- rate of discount)
Therefore; $$300(100\%-10\%)=300(1-0.1)=300-(300×0.1)$$

9- A
$$420=2^2×3^1×5^1×7^1$$

10- B

The area of the trapezoid is: area= $$\frac{(base 1+base 2)}{2}×height= (\frac{10 + 16}{2})x = A$$
$$→13x = A→x = \frac{A}{13}$$
