Answers:

1- A
The percent of girls playing tennis is: \(40 \% × 25 \% = 0.40 × 0.25 = 0.10 = 10 \%\)

2- C
\(5^{\frac{7}{3}}× 5^{\frac{2}{3}} = 5 ^{\frac{7}{3} + \frac{2}{3}}= 5^{\frac{9}{3}}= 5^3\)

3- B
\(2x^2+3y^5-x^2+2z^3-2y^2+2x^3-2y^5+5z^3=2x^2-x^2+2x^3-2y^2+3y^5-2y^5+2z^3+5z^3=x^2+2x^3-2y^2+y^5+7z^3\)

4- C
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 = 50 × 5 = 250
Add both numbers. 250 + 225 = 475

5- C
The question is this: 1.75 is what percent of 1.25?
Use percent formula:
\(part = \frac{percent}{100}× whole \)
\(1.75 = \frac{percent}{100}× 1.25 ⇒ 1.75 = \frac{percent ×1.25}{100}⇒175 = percent ×1.25 ⇒ percent =\frac{175}{1.25}= 140\)

6- D
Solve for \(x\).
\(x^3+18=130\)
\(x^3=112\)
Let’s review the options.
A. 1 and \(2. 1^3 = 1\) and \(2^3 = 8\), 112 is not between these two numbers.
B. 2 and 3. \(2^3 = 8 \space and \space 3^3 = 27\), 112 is not between these two numbers.
C. 3 and 4. \(3^3 = 27\) and \(4^3 = 64\), 112 is not between these two numbers.
D. 4 and 5. \(4^3 = 64 \) and \(5^3 = 125\), 112 is between these two numbers.
E. 5 and 6. \(5^3 = 125\) and \(6^3 = 216\), 112 is not between these two numbers.

7- D
Solve for \(x\).\(\frac{3x}{16} = \frac{x – 1}{4}\)
Multiply the second fraction by 4.
\(\frac{3x}{16}=\frac{4(x-1)}{4×4}\)
\(3x=4x-4\)
\(0=x-4\)
\(4=x\)

8- B
\((x-2)^3=27→x-2=3→x=5
→(x-4)(x-3)=(5-4)(5-3)=(1)(2)=2\)

9- D
We know that:
\(i=\sqrt{(-1)}⇒i^2=-1\)
\((-5+9i)(3+5i)=-15-25i+27i+45i^2=-15+2i-45=2i-60\)

10- B
\(tanθ=\frac{opposite}{adjacent}\)
\(tanθ=\frac{5}{12}\)⇒ we have the following right triangle. Then
\(c=\sqrt{(5^2+12^2 )}=\sqrt{(25+144)}=\sqrt{169}=13\)
\(\frac{adjacent}{hypotenuse}=\frac{12}{13}\)
