Answers:

1- B
Use the formula of areas of circles.
Area of a circle = \(πr^2→64 π=πr^2→64=r^2→r=8\)
Radius of the circle is 8. Now, use the circumference formula:
Circumference \(= 2πr = 2π (8) = 16π\)

2- C
\(x+4y=10\)
\(5x+10y=20\)
Multiply the top equation by -5 then,
\(-5x-20y=-50\)
\(5x+10y=20\)
\(Add \space two \space equations\)
\(-10y=-30→y=3 \) plug in the value of y into the first equation
\(x+4y=10→x+4(3)=10→x+12=10\)
Subtract 12 from both sides of the equation. Then:
\(x+12=10→x=-2\)

3- A
\(6b=5a\sqrt3→b= \frac{5a\sqrt3}{6}\)
\(Therefore:\)
\(\frac{2b\sqrt3}{4a}=\frac{2× \frac{5a\sqrt3}{6}×\sqrt3}{4a}=\frac{2×5a×3}{4×6a}=\frac{5}{4}\)

4- D
\( \frac{2}{5} ×25= \frac{50}{5} =10\)

5- D
The slop of line A is:
\(\frac{y_{2} – y_{1}}{x_{2} – x_{1}} = \frac{3-2}{4-3}=1 \)
Parallel lines have the same slope and only choice \(D (y=x)\) has slope of 1.

6- A

Line AB is the best fit line.
Then, point (6,1) is the farthest from line AB.

7- B
Choices \(A, C\) and \(D\) are incorrect because \(80\%\) of each of the numbers is non-whole number.
\(49, 80 \% \ of \ 49 = 0.80×49=39.2\)
\(35, 80 \% \ of \ 35=0.80×35=28\)
\(12, 80 \% \ of \ 12=0.80×12=9.6\)
\(32, 80 \% \ of \ 32=0.80×32=25.6\)

8- A
Let \(x\) be equal to 0.5, then: \(x = 0.5\)
\(\sqrt{(x^2+1)}=\sqrt{(0.5^2+1)}=\sqrt{1.25}≈1.12\)
\(\sqrt{(x^2 )+1}=\sqrt{(0.5^2 )}+1=0.5+1=1.5\)
Then, option A is correct.
\(x<\sqrt{(x^2+1)}<\sqrt{(x^2 )}+1\)

9- C
\(x\) is directly proportional to the square of \(y\). Then:
\(x=cy^2\)
\(12=c(2)^2→12=4c→c=\frac{12}{4}=3\)
The relationship between \(x\) and y is:
\(x=3y^2\)
\(x=75\)
\(75= 3y^2 →y^2 = \frac{75}{3} = 25→y=5\)

10- D
The amount of money that jack earns for one hour:
\(\frac{$616}{44} =$14\)
Number of additional hours that he work to make enough money is:
\(\frac{$826-$616}{1.5×$14}=10\)Number of total hours is: \(44 + 10 = 54\)
