## Answers:

1- **D**

If \(17\) balls are removed from the bag at random, there will be one ball in the bag. The probability of choosing a brown ball is \(1\) out of \(18\). Therefore, the probability of not choosing a brown ball is \(17\) out of \(18\) and the probability of having not a brown ball after removing \(17 \) balls is the same.

2- **B**

Let \(x\) be the smallest number. Then, these are the numbers: \(x, x+1, x+2, x+3, x+4\)

average\(=\frac{sum \ of \ terms}{number \ of \ terms} ⇒ 36=\frac{x+(x+1)+(x+2)+(x+3)+(x+4)}{5}⇒36=\frac{5x+10}{5} ⇒ 180=5x+10 ⇒170=5x ⇒ x=34\)

3-** C**

The area of the floor is: \(6\) cm\(×24\) cm\(=144 \) cm\(^2\), the number of tiles needed is: \(144÷8=18\)

4- **C**

The weight of \(14.2\) meters of this rope is: \(14.2×600\) g\(=8,520\) g

\(1\) kg\(=1,000\) g, therefore, \(8,520 \) g\(÷1000=8.52 \) kg

5- **C**

\(4\%\) of the volume of the solution is alcohol. Let \(x\) be the volume of the solution.

Then: \(4\%\) of \(x=24\) ml \(⇒ 0.04 x=24 ⇒ x=24÷0.04=600\)

6- **B**

average\(=\frac{sum \ of \ terms}{number \ of \ terms}\), The sum of the weight of all girls is: \(18×50=900\) kg, The sum of the weight of all boys is: \(32×62=1984\) kg, The sum of the weight of all students is: \(900+1984=2884\) kg, average\(=\frac{2884 }{50}=57.68\)

7- **C**

Let \(x \) be the original price. If the price of a laptop is decreased by \(20\%\) to \($360\), then:

\(80\%\) of \(x=360 ⇒ 0.80x=360 ⇒ x=360÷0.80=450\)

8- **B**

Write the numbers in order: \(3,5,8,10,13,15,18\). Since we have \(7 \) numbers (\(7\) is odd), then the median is the number in the middle, which is \(10\).

9- **D**

Change the numbers to decimal and then compare. \(\frac{11}{15}= 0.73\)…,\(0.74,75\%=0.75,\frac{19}{25}=0.76\)

Therefore: \(\frac{11}{15}<0.74<75\%<\frac{19}{25}\)

10- **A**

Let \(x\) be the number of years. Therefore, \($4,000\) per year equals \(4000x\). starting from \($24,000\) annual salary means you should add that amount to \(4000x\). Income more than that is:\(I>4000x+24000\)
