## Answers:

1- **D**

Even numbers always end with a digit of \(0, 2, 4, 6\) or \(8\).

So numbers \(30, 42, 18\) are just even numbers.

2- **D**

\(18 × 40 = 720\)

3-** 42**

3spaghetti with meatballs cost: \(3 × $10 = $30\)

2bowls of bean soup cost: \(2 × $6 = $12\)

3spaghetti with meatballs \(+\) 2bowls of bean soup cost: \($30 + $ 12 = $42\)

4- **C**

\(25 × 50 = 1250\)

5- **750**

We round the number up to the nearest ten if the last digit in the number is 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9.

We round the number down to the nearest ten if the last digit in the number is 1, 2, 3, or 4.

If the last digit is 0, then we do not have to do any rounding, because it is already to the ten.

Therefore, rounded number of 745 to the nearest ten is 750.

6- **C**

\(1\) hour \(= 60\) minutes

\(6\) hours\( = 6 × 60\) minutes\(⇒ 6\) hours\( = 360\) minutes

7- **C**

\(55 × 14 = 770\)

8- **A**

The model for the fraction is divided into 100 equal parts. We shade 88 parts of these 100 parts that it’s equal to \(\frac{88}{100}\)

9- **B**

\(12 × 8 = 96\)

10- **C**

Subtract 109 red cards and 88 white cards. The answer is 21

11- **A**

\(3 × 7 \space ⎕ \space 6 = 126\)

\(21\space ⎕\space 6= 126 ⇒ 126=21×6\)

12- **B**

Liam gave 455 of his marbles to his friend that means his marbles decreased then he lost 116 of his marbles that means his marbles decreased again.

13- **D**

\(33 + B + 8 = 66 ⇒ 41+B =66 ⇒ B =66 – 41 =25\)

14- **C**

If he eats 6 meals in 1 day

So in a week (7 days) he eats \((7 × 6 = 42)\) meals.

15- **A**All these fractions; \(\frac{3}{9},\frac{5}{15},\frac{24}{72}\) after simplification are equivalent to \(\frac{1}{3}\).

16- **A**

This shape shows 3 complete shaded triangles and a half of a triangle that is equal to \(3\frac{1}{2}\)

17- **A**

Perimeter of square formula \(= 4 ×\) side \(⇒ 24 = 4 ×\) side \(⇒\) side \(= 6\)

18- **B**

3 rows that have 13 red cards in each row means: \(3 × 13 = 39\) red cards

And there are 24 white cards on table too, so in total there are \(39 + 24 = 63\) cards on table

19- **A**

Simplify \(\frac{4}{10}\) that’s equal to \(\frac{2}{5}\)

20- **D**

\(64 ÷ 8 = 8\)
