## Answers:

1- **D**

Simplify.

\(6x^2 y^3 (2x^2 y)^3= 6x^2 y^3 (8x^6 y^3 ) = 48x^8 y^6\)

2- **28**

Let \(x\)be the width of the rectangle. Use Pythagorean Theorem:

\(a^2 + b^2 = c^2\)

\(x^2 + 8^2 = 10^2 {\Rightarrow} x^2 + 64 = 100 {\Rightarrow} x^2 = 100 – 64 = 36 ⇒ x = 6\)

Perimeter of the rectangle = 2 (length + width) = 2 (8 + 6) = 2 (14) = 28

3-** D**

Isolate and solve for \(x\).

\(\frac{2}{3} x+\frac{1}{6} = \frac{1}{3} {\Rightarrow} \frac{2}{3} x= \frac{1}{3} -\frac{1}{6} = \frac{1}{6} {\Rightarrow} \frac{2}{3} x= \frac{1}{6} \)

Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient of \(x\).

\((\frac{3}{2}) \frac{2}{3} x= \frac{1}{6} (\frac{3}{2}) {\Rightarrow} x= \frac{3}{12}=\frac{1}{4}\)

4- **D**The probability of choosing a Hearts is \(\frac{13}{52}=\frac{1}{4} \)

5- **D**

Change the numbers to decimal and then compare.

\(\frac{2}{3} = 0.666… \)

\(0.68 \)

\(67\% = 0.67\)

\(\frac{4}{5} = 0.80\)

Therefore

\(\frac{2}{3} < 67\% < 0.68 < \frac{4}{5}\ \)

6- **C**

average (mean) \(=\frac{(sum \space of \space terms)}{(number \space of \space terms)} {\Rightarrow} 88 = \frac{(sum \space of \space terms)}{50} {\Rightarrow}\) sum \(= 88 {\times} 50 = 4400\)

The difference of 94 and 69 is 25. Therefore, 25 should be subtracted from the sum.

\(4400 – 25 = 4375\)

mean\( = \frac{(sum of terms)}{(number of terms)} ⇒ \)mean \(= \frac{(4375)}{50}= 87.5\)

7- **B**

To get a sum of 6 for two dice, we can get 5 different options:

(5, 1), (4, 2), (3, 3), (2, 4), (1, 5)

To get a sum of 9 for two dice, we can get 4 different options:

(6, 3), (5, 4), (4, 5), (3, 6)

Therefore, there are 9 options to get the sum of 6 or 9.

Since we have 6 × 6 = 36 total options, the probability of getting a sum of 6 and 9 is 9 out of 36 or \(\frac{1}{4}\).

8- **C**

The distance between Jason and Joe is 9 miles. Jason running at 5.5 miles per hour and Joe is running at the speed of 7 miles per hour. Therefore, every hour the distance is 1.5 miles less. 9 \(\div \) 1.5 = 6

9- **C**

The failing rate is 11 out of 55 = \(\frac{11}{55} \)

Change the fraction to percent:

\( \frac{11}{55} {\times} 100\%=20\% \)

20 percent of students failed. Therefore, 80 percent of students passed the exam.

10- **D**

Volume of a box = length \(\times \) width \(\times \) height = 4 \(\times \) 5 \(\times \) 6 = 120
