## Answers:

1- **C**

Employer’s revenue: \(0.2x+7000\)

2- **B**

The diagonal of the square is 8. Let x be the side.

Use Pythagorean Theorem: \(a^2 + b^2 = c^2\)

\(x^2 + x^2 = 82 ⇒ 2x^2 = 82 ⇒ 2x^2 = 64 ⇒x^2 = 32 ⇒x= \sqrt{32}\)

The area of the square is:

\(\sqrt{32} × \sqrt{32} = 32\)

3-** B**

\(x=20+125=145\)

4- **B**

By definition, the sine of any acute angle is equal to the cosine of its complement.

Since, angle A and B are complementary angles, therefore:

sin A = cos B

5- **E**

Solve the system of equations by elimination method.

\(3x-4y= -20\)

\(-x+2y=10\)

Multiply the second equation by 3, then add it to the first equation.

\(3x-4y= -20\)

\(3(-x+2y=10)\)

\Downarrow

\(3x-4y= -20\)

\(-3x+6y=30\)

⇒ add the equations

\(2y=10⇒y=5\)

6- **C**

Use distance formula:

Distance = Rate × time ⇒ 420 = 50 × T, divide both sides by 50. 420 / 50 = T ⇒ T = 8.4 hours.

Change hours to minutes for the decimal part. 0.4 hours = 0.4 × 60 = 24 minutes.

7- **D**

\(x\) and z are colinear. \(y\) and \(5x\) are colinear. Therefore,

\(x+z=y+5x\),subtract \(x\) from both sides,then,\(z=y+4x\)

8- **D**

Check each option.

A. \(\frac{3}{4} > 0.8\)

\(\frac{3}{4}=0.75\) and it is less than 0.8. Not true!

B. \(10\% = \frac{2}{5}\)

\(10\% = 1/10<\frac{2}{5}\). Not True!

C. \(3 < \frac{5}{2}\)

\(\frac{5}{2} =2.5<3\). Not True!

D. \(\frac{5}{6}) > 0.8\)

\(\frac{5}{6} =0.8333\)… and it is greater than 0.8. Bingo!

E. None of them above Not True!

9- **C**

\(40\%\) of 60 equals to: 0.40×60=24

\(12\%\) of 600 equals to: 0.12×600=72

\(40\%\) of 60 is added to \(12\%\) of 600: 24+72=96

10- **D**

The relationship among all sides of special right triangle

\(30^\circ-60^\circ- 90^\circ\) is provided in this triangle:

In this triangle, the opposite side of \(30^\circ\) angle is half of the hypotenuse.

Draw the shape of this question:

The latter is the hypotenuse. Therefore, the latter is 60 ft.
