## Answers:

1- **A**

Use cross product to solve for \((x)\).

\(\frac{x}{x-2}=\frac{4}{5}→5×x=4×(x-2)→5x=4x-8→x=-8, x-5=-8-5=-13\)

2- **C**

\(x\) is the number of all sales profit and \(3\%\) of it is: \(3\%×x=0.03x\), Employer’s revenue: \(0.03x+7,000\)

3-** B**

Number of biology book: \(35\), Total number of books; \(35+85+90=210\)

The ratio of the number of biology books to the total number of books is: \(\frac{35}{210}=\frac{1}{6}\)

4- **D**

\(5,000+A-200=7,400→5,000+A=7,400+200=7,600→A=7,600-5,000=2,600\)

5- **E**

Let \(x\) be all expenses, then \(\frac{22}{100} x=$770 →x=\frac{100×$770}{22}=$3,500\),

He spent for his rent: \(\frac{27}{100}×$3,500=$945\)

6- **C**

\(5×M+3=5→5×M=5-3=2→M=\frac{2}{5}\)

7- **E**

\(\frac{52.6}{100}=0.526\)

8-B

The angles on a straight line add up to \(180\) degrees. Then: \(x+22+y+2x+y=180\), Then, \(3x+2y=180-22→3(28)+2y=158→2y=158-84=74→y=37\)

9- **B**

let \(x\) be the number of gallons of water the container holds when it is full.

Then; \(\frac{5}{24} x=2.5→x=\frac{24×2.5}{5}=12\)

10- **C**

The ratio of lions to tigers is \(3\) to 1 at the zoo. Therefore, total number of lions and tigers must be divisible by \(4\). From the choices provided, only \(98\) is not divisible by \(4\).

11- **B**

If \(x\) is greater than \(18\), then \(\frac{1}{3}\) of \(x\) must be greater than: \(\frac{1}{3}×18=6.\)

12- **B**

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.

13- **D**

To find the discount, multiply the number by (\(100\%-\) rate of discount).Therefore, for the first discount we get: \((D) (100\%-15\%)=(D\) \(0.85)=0.85 D\)

For increase of \(10\%: (0.85 D) (100\%+10\%\)=\(0.85 D\) \(1.10)=0.93 D=\) \(93\%\) of D or \(0.93D\)

14- **A**

\(0.35\) equals \(350M\). Then:\(0.35=350M→M=\frac{0.35}{350}=0.001\)

15- **B**

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

t is for one year. For (3) months, t is \(\frac{1}{4}\) or \(0.25\).

\(I=(5,800)(0.05)(0.25)=72.50\)

16- **A**

Three times a certain number, increased by \(10\), is equal to \(40\). Write an equation and solve.

\(3x+10=40→3x=40-10=30→x=\frac{30}{3}=10\)

17- **A**

\(30\) percent of a number is (150). Therefore, the number is \(500. 0.30x=150→x=\frac{150}{0.30}=500\)

\(15\) percent of (500) is \(75. 0.15×500=75\)

18- **E**

average \(=\frac{sum \ of \ terms }{number \ of \ terms}⇒ 20= \frac{13+15+20+x}{4 } ⇒80=48+x ⇒ x=32\)

19- **D**

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 number of hours.

Distance \(=\) Average \(×\) Rate \(=55×5=275\), Add both numbers. \(275+225=500\)

20- **E**

John has N toy cars. Jack has \(6\) more cars than John. Therefore, Jack has \(N+6\) toy cars. Jack gives John \(3\) cars. Now, Jack has \((N+6-3) N+3\) toy cars.
