## Answers:

1- **C**

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

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

2- **C**

Let \(x\) be the original price.

If the price of a laptop is decreased by \(10\%\) to $360, then:

\(90 \% of x=360 ⇒ 0.90x=360 ⇒ x=360÷0.90=400\)

3-** B**

Write the numbers in order:

\(4, 5, 8, 9, 13, 15, 18\)

Since we have 7 numbers (7 is odd), then the median is the number in the middle, which is 9.

4- **A**Let \(L\) be the price of laptop and \(C\) be the price of computer.

\(3(L) =5(C) \space and \space L = $200 + C \)

Therefore, \(3($200 + C) =5C ⇒ $600 + 3C = 5C ⇒ C=$300\)

5- **97.6**

Use the area of square formula.

\(S = a^2 ⇒ 595.36 = a^2 ⇒ a = 24.4\)

Use the perimeter of square formula.

\(P = 4a ⇒ P=4(24.4) ⇒ P = 97.6\)

6- **C**

The distance between Jason and Joe is 9 miles. Jason running at 5.5 miles per hour and Joe is running at the speed of 7 miles per hour. Therefore, every hour the distance is 1.5 miles less.

\(9 ÷ 1.5 = 6\)

7- **D**

The failing rate is 11 out of \(55 = \frac{11}{55}\).

Change the fraction to percent:

\(\frac{11}{55} ×100\%=20\%\)

20 percent of students failed. Therefore, 80 percent of students passed the exam.

8- **60**

Jason needs an \(75\%\) average to pass for five exams. Therefore, the sum of 5 exams must be at lease \(5 × 75 = 375\)

The sum of 4 exams is:

\(68 + 72 + 85 + 90 = 315\)

The minimum score Jason can earn on his fifth and final test to pass is:

\( 375 – 315 = 60\)

9- **B**

Use simple interest formula:

\(I=prt\)

(I = interest, p = principal, r = rate, t = time)

\(I=(12000)(0.035)(2)=840\)

10- **D**

Let \(x\) be the integer. Then:

\(2x – 5 = 83\)

Add 5 both sides: \(2x = 88\)

Divide both sides by 2: \(x = 44\)
