## Answers:

1- **C**

METHOD ONE

\(log_4(x+2) – log_4(x-2) = 1\)

Add \(log_4(x-2)\) to both sides

\(log_4(x+2) – log_4(x-2)+ log_4(x-2)= 1 + log_4(x-2)\)

\(log_4(x+2) = 1 + log_4(x-2)\)

Apply logarithm rule:

\(a = log_b(b^a) ⇒ 1 = log_4(4^1) = log_4(4)\)

then: \(log_4(x+2) = log_4(4) + log_4(x-2)\)

Logarithm rule: \(log_c(a) + log_c(b) = log_c(ab)\)

then: \(log_4(4) + log_4(x-2) = log_4(4(x-2))\)

\(log_4(x+2) = log_4(4(x-2))\)

When the logs have the same base:

\(log_b(f(x)) = log_b(g(x)) ⇒ f(x) = g(x)

(x+2) = 4(x-2)\)

\(x = \frac{10}{3}\)

METHOD TWO

We know that:

\(log_ab-log_ac=log_a\frac{b}{c}\space and \space log_ab=c⇒b=a^c\)

Then: \(log_4(x+2)- log_4(x-2)=log_4\frac{(x + 2)}{(x – 2)}=1⇒\frac{(x + 2)}{(x – 2)}=4^1=4⇒x+2=4(x-2)

⇒x+2=4x-8⇒4x-x=8+2→3x=10⇒x=\frac{10}{3}\)

2- **B**

\(e^{(5x + 1 )}= 10\)

If \( f(x) = g(x)\), then \(ln(f(x)) = ln(g(x))\)

\(ln(e^{(5x + 1 )})= ln(10)\)

Apply logarithm rule:

\(log_a(x^b) = b log_a(x)\)

\(ln(e^{(5x + 1 )})= (5x + 1)ln(e)\)

\((5x + 1)ln(e) = ln(10)\)

\((5x + 1)ln(e) = (5x + 1)\)

\((5x + 1) = ln(10) \)

\( ⇒x = \frac{ln(10) – 1}{5}\)

3-** C**

\(f(x) = x –\frac{5}{3}⇒ y = x – \frac{5}{3}⇒ y+ \frac{5}{3}=x\)

\(f^{-1 }= x+ \frac{5}{3}\)

\(f ^{–1}(5) = 5 +\frac{5}{3}=\frac{20}{3}\)

4- **C**

cos \(30^{\circ} = \frac{\sqrt 3}{2}\)

5- **C**

sin\(θ=\frac{3}{5}⇒\) we have following triangle, then:

\(c=\sqrt {(5^2-3^2 )}=\sqrt{(25-9)}=\sqrt 16=4\)

cos\(θ=\frac{4}{5}\)

6- **B**

\(-2x- y = -9\)

\(5x-2y= 18\)

\(⇒\) Multiplication \((–2)\) in first equation

\(4x +2y =18\)

\(5x-2y= 18\)

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

7- **C**

\(|9 – (12 ÷ | 2 – 5 |)| = |(9-(12÷|-3|))|=|9-(12÷3)|=|9-4|=|5|=5\)

8- **D**

METHOD ONE

\(log_{2}x = 5\)

Apply logarithm rule: \(a = log_b(b^a)\)

\(5 = log_2(2^5) = log_2(32)\)

\(log_2x = log_2(32)\)

When the logs have the same base: \(log_b(f(x)) = log_b(g(x))⇒ f(x) = g(x)\)

then: \(x = 32\)

METHOD TWO

We know that:

\(log_ab=c⇒b=a^c \)

\(log_2x=5⇒x=2^5=32\)

9- **D**

\(\frac{x^3}{16}\)

\(⇒\) reciprocal is : \(\frac{16}{x^3}\)

10- **A**

\(f(x) = ln (2x + 1)\)

\(y = ln (2x + 1)\)

Change variables \(x\) and \(y: x = ln (2y + 1)\)

solve: \(x = ln (2y + 1)\)

\(y = \frac{e^{x}-1}{2}=\frac{1}{2}(e^{x} – 1)\)
