## Answers:

1- **D**

\( (g – f)(x) = g(x) – f(x) = (– x^2 – 1 – 2x) – (5 + x)

– x^2 – 1 – 2x – 5 – x = – x^2 – 3x – 6\)

2- **B**

\(\frac{|3+x|}{7}≤ 5⇒|3+x|≤35⇒-35≤3+x≤35⇒-35-3≤x≤35-3⇒

-38≤x≤32\)

3- **D**

tan \( (-\frac{π}{6}) = -\frac{\sqrt3}{3}\)

4- **A**

\(\frac{\sqrt{32a^5 b^3} }{\sqrt{2ab^2} }=\frac{4a^2 b\sqrt{2ab}}{b\sqrt{2a}}=4a^2 \sqrt b\)

5- **D**

\(c(3)=(3)^2+10(3)+30=9+30+30=69\)

\(4×3=12⇒12-69=-57⇒57,000 \space loss\)

6- **B**

sin B\(=\frac{the \space length \space of \space the \space side \space that \space is \space opposite \space that \space angle}{the \ length \space of \space the \space longest \space side \space of \space the \space triangle}=\frac{4}{5}\)

7- **C**

\(-7y=-6x-12⇒y=\frac{-6}{-7}x- \frac{12}{-7}⇒y=\frac{6}{7}x + \frac{12}{7}\)

8- **D**

\( E = 4 + A\)

\(A = S – 3\)

9- **C**

\(5x + y = 9\)

\(10x-7y= -18\)

Multiplication (–2) in first equation

\(-10x- 2y = -18 \)

\(10x-7y= -18\)

Add two equations together ⇒ \(–9y = –36\) ⇒\( y = 4\) then: \(x = 1\)

10- **B**

\((x – h)^2 + (y – k)^2 = r^2\) ⇒ center: (h,k) and radius: r

\((x – 3)^2 + (y + 6)^2 = 12\) ⇒ center: (3,-6) and radius:\(2\sqrt 3\)
