## Answers:

1- **D**

Solve for \(x\).

\(\sqrt{6x}=\sqrt{y}\)

Square both sides of the equation:

\((\sqrt{6x})^2=(\sqrt{y})^2\)

\(6x=y\)

\( x=\frac{y}{6}\)

2- **B**

average \(=\frac{sum \space of \space terms}{number \space of \space terms}\)

The sum of the weight of all girls is: \(18 × 60 = 1080\) kg

The sum of the weight of all boys is: \(32 × 62 = 1984\) kg

The sum of the weight of all students is: 1080 + 1984 = 3064 kg

average \(=\frac{3064 }{50}= 61.28\)

3-** E**

\(y=(-3x^3)^2=(-3)^2 (x^3)^2=9x^6\)

4- **C**

Plug in the value of \(x\) and \(y\).

\(x=3\) and \(y=-2\)

\(5(x-2y)+(2-x)^2=5(3-2(-2))+(2-3)^2=5(3+4)+(-1)^2 = 35+1=36\)

5- **B**

The question is this: 530.40 is what percent of 624?

Use percent formula:

part \(=\frac{percent}{100} ×\) whole

\(530.40 =\frac{percent}{100} × 624 ⇒ 530.40 = \frac{percent ×624}{100} ⇒53040 = percent ×624 ⇒ \)

percent \(= \frac{53040}{624}= 85\)

530.40 is \(85\%\) of 624. Therefore, the discount is: \(100\% – 85\% = 15\%\)

6- **A**

\((\frac{f}{g})(x)=\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}=\frac{3x – 1}{x^2-x}\)

7- **A**

The equation of a line is: \(y=mx+b\), where m is the slope and b is the \(y\)-intercept.

First find the slope:

\(m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}=\frac{15-(-5)}{8-3}= \frac{20}{5}=4\)

Then, we have: \(y=4x+b\)

Choose one point and plug in the values of \(x\) and \(y\) in the equation to solve for b.

Let’s choose the point \((3, -5)\)

\(y=4x+b→-5=4(3)+b→-5=12+b→b=-17\)

The equation of the line is: \(y=4x-17\)

8- **B**

Use simple interest formula:

\(I=prt\)

(I = interest, p = principal, r = rate, t = time)

\(I=(12000)(0.035)(2)=840\)

9- **E**

Number of visiting fans:

\(\frac{2×25000}{5}=10,000\)

10- **E**

The sum of all angles in a quadrilateral is 360 degrees.

Let x be the smallest angle in the quadrilateral. Then the angles are:

\(x,2x,2x,5x\)

\(x+2x+2x+5x=360→10x=360→x=36\)

The angles in the quadrilateral are: \(36^\circ, 72^\circ, 72^\circ\), and \(180^\circ\)

11- **C**

Formula for the area of a circle is:

\(A=πr^2\)

Using 64 for the area of the circle we have:

\(64=πr^2\)

Let’s solve for the radius (r).

\(\frac{64}{π}=r^2→r=\sqrt{\frac{64}{π}}= \frac{8}{\sqrt{π}}=\frac{8}{\sqrt{π}}×\frac{\sqrt{π}}{\sqrt{π}}= \frac{8\sqrt{π}}{\sqrt{π}}\)

12- **C**

Length of the rectangle is: \(\frac{5}{4})×16=20\)

perimeter of rectangle is: \(2×(20+16)=72\)

13- **E**

The angle \(x\) and 35 are complementary angles. Therefore:

\(x+35=180\)

\(180^\circ-35^\circ=145^\circ\)

14- **A**

Three times of 24,000 is 72,000. One sixth of them cancelled their tickets.

One sixth of 72,000 equals \(12,000 (1/6 × 72000 = 12000)\).

\(60,000 (72000 – 12000 = 60000)\) fans are attending this week

15- **A**

sin A\(=\frac{1}{3}\)

Since sin \(θ=\frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}\)

we have the following right triangle. Then:

\(c=\sqrt{(3^2-1^2 )}=\sqrt{(9-1)}=\sqrt{8}\)

cos A\(=\frac{\sqrt{8}}{3}\)

16- **D**

\(670000=6.7×10^5\)

17- **C**

the population is increased by \(15\%\) and \(20\%. 15\%\) increase changes the population to \(115\%\) of original population.

For the second increase, multiply the result by \(120\%\).

\((1.15) × (1.20) = 1.38 = 138\%\)

38 percent of the population is increased after two years.

18- **A**

\((x^6)^{\frac{5}{8}} \)

\(= x^{6 × \frac{5}{8}}= x^{\frac{30}{8}}=x^{\frac{15}{4}}\)

19- **A**

The relationship among all sides of right triangle \(30^\circ-60^\circ- 90^\circ\) is provided in the following triangle:

\( \img {https://appmanager.effortlessmath.com/public/images/questions/test22222.22222.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.2.JPG

} \)

Sine of \(30^\circ\) equals to: \(\frac{opposite}{hypotenuse}=\frac{x}{2x}=\frac{1}{2}\)

20- **D**

Let \(x\) be the length of AB, then:

\(15=\frac{x×5}{2}→x=6\)

The length of AC =(\sqrt{(6^2+8^2 )}=\sqrt{100}=10)

The perimeter of ∆ABC=(6+8+10=24)
