## Answers:

1- **E**

The capacity of a red box is \(20\%\) bigger than the capacity of a blue box and it can hold \(60\) books. Therefore, we want to find a number that \(20\%\) bigger than that number is \(60\). Let \(x\) be that number. Then: \(1.20×x=60\), Divide both sides of the equation by \(1.2\). Then:

\(x=\frac{60}{1.20}=50\)

2- **E**

We have two equations and three unknown variables, therefore \(x\) cannot be obtained.

3-** E**

\(x+2=2+2+2→x=4\)

\(y+7+3=6+5→y+10=11→y=1\)

Then, the perimeter is:

\(2+6+2+5+2+3+2+7+4+1=34\)

4- **ٍE**

Amount of available petrol in tank: \(60.4-4.86-23.9+11.22=42.86\) liters

5- **C**

Let put some values for a and b. If \(a=8\) and \(b=2 →a×b=16 →\frac{16}{4}=8→16\) is divisible by \(4\) then;

A.\(2a-5b=(2×8)-(5×2)=6\) is not divisible by \(4\)

B.\(3a-b=(3×8)-2=24-2=22\) is not divisible by \(4\)

If \(a=10\) and \(b=4 →a×b=40 →\frac{40}{4}=10\) is not divisible by \(4\) then;

C.\(2a×3b=20×(3×4)=20×12=240\) is divisible by \(4\)

D.\(\frac{a}{b}=\frac{10}{4}\) is not divisible by \(4\)

E. \(\frac{a×b}{3}=\frac{10×4}{3}=13.33\)

For choice C, if you try any other numbers for a and b, you will get the same result.

6- **D**

Let’s review the choices provided:

A.\(x=\frac{1}{3}→ \frac{6}{8}+\frac{1}{3}=\frac{18+8}{24}=\frac{26}{24}≅1.083<2\)

B.\(x=\frac{3}{5}→ \frac{6}{8}+\frac{3}{5}=\frac{30+24}{40}=\frac{54}{40}≅1.35<2\)

C.\(x=\frac{6}{5}→ \frac{6}{8}+\frac{6}{5}=\frac{30+48}{40}=\frac{78}{40}≅1.95<2\)

D.\(x=\frac{4}{3}→ \frac{6}{8}+\frac{4}{3}=\frac{18+32}{24}=\frac{50}{24}≅2.08>2\)

E.\(x=\frac{2}{3}→ \frac{6}{8}+\frac{2}{3}=\frac{18+16}{24}=\frac{34}{24}≅1.41<2\)

Only choice D is correct.

7- **E**

\(\frac{3}{4}×20=\frac{60}{4}=15\)

8- **B**

The angles on a straight line add up to \(180\) degrees. Let’s review the choices provided:

A.\(y=10→ x+25+y+2x+y=35+25+10+2(35)+10=150≠180\)

B.\(y=25→ x+25+y+2x+y=35+25+25+2(35)+25=180\)

C.\(y=30→ x+25+y+2x+y=35+25+30+2(35)+30=190≠180\)

D.\(y=40→ x+25+y+2x+y=35+25+40+2(35)+40=210≠180\)

E.\(y=50→ x+25+y+2x+y=35+25+50+2(35)+50=230≠180\)

9- **B**

Set of numbers that are not composite between \(1\) and \(20: A={2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19}\)

Probability\(=\frac{number \ of \ desired \ outcomes}{number \ of \ total \ outcomes}= \frac{8}{20}=\frac{2}{5 }\)

10- **C**

\(615÷4=\frac{615}{4}=\frac{600+10+5}{4}=\frac{600}{4}+\frac{10}{4}+\frac{5}{4 }\)

11- **C**

Perimeter of figure A is: \(2πr=2π \frac{20}{2}=20π=20×3=60\)

Area of figure B is: \(5×12=60\), Average\(=\frac{60+60}{2}=\frac{120}{2}=60\)

12- **C**

Digit \(9\) is in the hundredths place.

13- **A**

\(x-20=-20→x=-20+20→x=0\), Then; \(x×20=0×20=0\)

14- **C**

\(0.04×13.00=\frac{4}{100}×\frac{13}{1}=\frac{52}{100}=0.52 \)

15- **E**

His average speed was: \(\frac{3.5}{0.5}=7\) miles per hour

16- **B**

The perimeter of the quadrilateral is: \(7+21+10+32=70\)

17- **D**

The amount of flour is: \( M-75\)

18- **D**

Number of packs needed equals to: \(\frac{18}{4}≅4.5\), Then Mia must purchase \(5\) packs.

19- **C**

The time it takes to drive from city A to city B is: \(\frac{3,600}{70}=51.42\), It’s approximately \(51\) hours.

20- **B**

Number of males in the classroom is: \(60-30=30\)

Then, the percentage of males in the classroom is: \(\frac{30}{60}×100=0.5×100=50\%\)
