## Answers:

1- **D**

Write the equation and solve for B: 0.60 A=0.20 B, divide both sides by 0.20, then:

\(\frac{0.60}{0.20 } A=B\), therefore: B=3A, and B is 3 times of A or it’s \(300\%\) of A.

2- **B**

Use this formula: Percent of Change \(\frac{New \ Value-Old \ Value}{Old \ Value}×100\% \)

\(\frac{15000-20000}{20000}×100\%=-25\%\) and \(\frac{11200-15000}{15000}×100\%=-25\% \)

3-** D**

If the length of the box is 45, then the width of the box is one-third of it, 15, and the height of the box is 5 (one-third of the width). The volume of the box is:

V=lwh =(45)(15)(5)=3375

4- **D**To find the number of possible outfit combinations, multiply number of options for each factor: \(6×3×5=90\)

5- **C**

Use simple interest formula: I=prt (I=interest,p=principal,r=rate,t=time)

I=(8,000)(0.045)(5)=1,800

6- **B**

\(6^4\)=6×6×6×6=1,296

7- **C**

\(x=\frac{15}{20}=0.75=75\% \)

8- **C**

The perimeter of the trapezoid is 56. Therefore, the missing side (height) is =56-18-12-14=12. Area of a trapezoid: \(A=\frac{1}{2 } h (b_{1}+b_{2})=\frac{1}{2}(12)(12+14)=156\)

9- **C**

Add the first 5 numbers. 40+45+50+35+55=225

To find the distance traveled in the next 5 hours, multiply the average by the number of hours.

Distance=Average×Rate = 65×5 =325

Add both numbers. 325+225=550

10- **C**

Use distance formula: Distance =Rate×time ⇒ 420=65×T, divide both sides by \(65. 420÷65=T ⇒ T=6.4\) hours. Change hours to minutes for the decimal part. 0.4 hours =0.4×60 =24 minutes.
