## Answers:

1- **A**

If the score of Mia was 40, therefore the score of Ava is 20. Since, the score of Emma was half as that of Ava, therefore, the score of Emma is 10.

2- **C**

Let \(x\) be the number. Write the equation and solve for \(x\). \(\frac{2}{3} ×9= \frac{2}{5 } \).

\(x⇒\frac{2×9}{3}= \frac{2x}{5}\) , use cross multiplication to solve for \(x. 5×18=2x×3⇒90=6x⇒ x=15\)

3-** D**

Let \(x\) be the number. Then: \(3x+5=32\) Solve for \(x\): \(3x+5=32→3x=32-5=27→

x=27÷3=9\)

4- **C**Simplify and solve for \(x\) in the equation. \(4(x+1)=6(x-4)+20, 4x+4= 6x-24+20, 4x+4=6x-4\). Subtract \(4x\) from both sides: \(4=2x-4\), Add 4 to both sides: \(8=2x, 4=x\)

5- **B**

Let’s write equations based on the information provided:

Michelle = Karen \(-9\),Michelle = David \(- 4\), Karen + Michelle + David =82

Karen \(- 9\)=Michelle ⇒ Karen = Michelle +9

Karen + Michelle + David = 82

Now, replace the ages of Karen and David by Michelle. Then:

Michelle +9+ Michelle + Michelle +4 =82

3× Michelle +13=82⇒ 3× Michelle = \(82-13\)

3× Michelle =69 , Michelle=23

6- **A**

Let \(x\) be one-kilogram orange cost, then:\(2x+(2×4.2)=26.4→2x+8.4=26.4→

2x=26.4-8.4→2x=18→x=\frac{18}{2}=$9\)

7- **A**

average \(=\frac{sum \ of \ terms }{number \ of \ terms}\), The sum of the weight of all girls is: 18×50=900 kg, The sum of the weight of all boys is: 32×62=1,984 kg, The sum of the weight of all students is:

900+ 1,984=2,884 kg, Average \(=\frac{2,884}{50}=57.68\)

8- **C**

Solve for \(x\) in the equation. \(6(x+4)=78→6x+24=78→6x=78-24=54→

x=54÷6=9\)

9- **C**

Let \(x\) be the number. Write the equation and solve for \(x. (32-x)÷ x = 3\)

Multiply both sides by \(x. (32-x)= 3x\), then add \(x\) both sides. \(32=4x\), now divide both sides by \(4. x=8\)

10- **E**

Only option D is correct. \(\frac{5}{6}=0.83→0.8<\frac{5}{6}\)
