## 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= \(\frac{(base 1+base 2)}{2}×height= (\frac{10 + 16}{2})x = A\)

\( →13x = A→x = \frac{A}{13}\)
