## Answers:

1- **A**

\(420=2^2×3^1×5^1×7^1\)

2- **B**

The area of the trapezoid is: area= \(\frac{(base 1+base 2)}{2})×height= ((\frac{10 + 16}{2})x = A\)

\( →13x = A→x = \frac{A}{13}\)

3-** A**

\(\frac{104}{8}=13, \frac{1352}{104}=13, \frac{17576}{1352}=13\)

Therefore, the factor is 13

4- **C**Simplify each option provided.

\( A. -20-(3×10)+(6×40)=-20-30+240=190\)

\( B. (\frac{15}{8})×72 + (\frac{125}{5}) =135+25=160\)

\(C. ((\frac{30}{4} + \frac{15}{2})×8) – \frac{11}{2} + \frac{222}{4} = ((\frac{30 + 30}{4})×8)- \frac{11}{2}+ \frac{111}{2}=(\frac{60}{4})×8) + \frac{100}{2}= 120 + 50 = 170\)this is the answer

\(D. \frac{481}{6} + \frac{121}{3}+50= \frac{481+242}{6}+50=120.5+50=170.5\)

5- **A**

1 yard \(= \)3 feet

Therefore, \(3,768 ft × \frac{1 \space yd }{3 \space ft}=1,256 \space yd\)

6- **A**

3,400 out of 74,800 equals to \(\frac{3,400}{74,800}=\frac{17}{374}=\frac{1}{22}\)

7- **A**

Prime factorizing of \(20=2×2×5\)

Prime factorizing of \(12=2×2×3\)

LCM\(=2×2×3×5=60\)

8- **C**

Plug in the value of \(x\) into the function f. First, plug in 3.1 for \(x\).

\(A. f=2x-\frac{3}{10}=2(3.1)-\frac{3}{10}=5.9≠8.6\)

\(B. f=x+\frac{3}{10}=3.1+\frac{3}{10}=3.4≠10.8\)

\(C. f=2x+2 \frac{2}{5}=2(3.1)+2 \frac{2}{5}=6.2+2.4=8.6 \)

This is correct!

Plug in other values of \(x. x=4.2\)

\(f=2x+2\frac{2}{5} =2(4.2)+2.4=10.8 \)

This one is also correct.

\(x=5.9\)

\(f=2x+2 \frac{2}{5}=2(5.9)+2.4=14.2 \)

This one works too!

\(D. 2x+\frac{3}{10}=2(3.1)+\frac{3}{10}=6.5≠8.6\)

9- **D**

1 kg\(=\) 1000 g and 1 g \(=\) 1000 mg

96 kg\(=\) 96 \(×\) 1000 g \(=\)96 \(×\) 1000 \(×\) 1000 \(=\)96,000,000 mg

10- **B**

The diameter of a circle is twice the radius. Radius of the circle is \(\frac{25}{2}\).

Area of a circle = \(πr^2=π(\frac{25}{2})^2=156.25π=156.25×3.14=490.625≅491\)
