## Answers:

1- **C**

When 5 times the number \(x\) is added to 10, the result is

\(10 + 5x\). Since this result is equal to 35, the equation \(10 + 5x = 35\) is true.

Subtracting 10 from each side of \(10 + 5x = 35\) gives \(5x=25\),

and then dividing both sides by 5 gives \(x=5\).

Therefore, 3 times \(x\) added to 6, or

\(6 + 3x\), is equal to \(6 + 3(5) = 21\).

2- **B**

Since \(f(x)\) is linear function with a negative slop, then when \(x=-2, f(x)\) is maximum and when \(x = 3, f(x)\) is minimum. Then the ratio of the minimum value to the maximum value of the function is:

\(\frac{f(3)}{f(-2)}=\frac{-3(3)+1}{-3(-2)+1}=\frac{-8}{7}=-\frac{8}{7}\)

3-** D**

The description \(8+2x\) is 16 more than 20 can be written as the equation \(8+2x=16+20\), which is equivalent to \(8+2x=36\).

Subtracting 8 from each side of \(8+2x=36\) gives \(2x=28\).

Since \(6x\) is 3 times \(2x\), multiplying both sides of \(2x=28\) by 3 gives \(6x = 84\)

4- **D**Of the 30 employees, there are 5 females under age 45 and 6 males age 45 or older. Therefore, the probability that the person selected will be either a female under age 45 or a male age 45 or older is: \(\frac{5}{30} + \frac{6}{30} = \frac{11}{30}\)

5- **A**

Substituting \(x\) for \(y\) in first equation.

\(5x+2y=3\)

\(5x+2(x)=3\)

\(7x=3\)

Divide both side of \(7x = 3\) by 3 gives \(x =\frac{3}{7}\)

6- **D**

Substituting 6 for \(x\) and 14 for \(y\) in \(y = nx+2\) gives \(14=(n)(6)+2\),

which gives \(n=2\). Hence, \(y=2x+2\).

Therefore, when \(x = 10\), the value of \(y\) is

\(y=(2)(10)+2 = 22\)

7- **A**

Subtracting \(2x\) and adding 5 to both sides of \(2x – 5 ≥ 3x – 1\) gives \(-4 ≥ x\).

Therefore, x is a solution to \(2x – 5 ≥ 3x – 1\) if and only if \(x\) is less than or equal to \(-4\) and x is NOT a solution to \(2x – 5 ≥ 3x – 1\) if and only if \(x\) is greater than \(-4\).

Of the choices given, only \(-2\) is greater than \(-4\) and, therefore, cannot be a value of \(x\).

8- **C**

The sum of the two polynomials is \((4x^2+6x-3)+(3x^2-5x+8)\)

This can be rewritten by combining like terms:

\((4x^2+6x-3)+(3x^2-5x+8)=(4x^2+3x^2 )+(6x-5x)+(-3+8)=

7x^2+x+5\)

9- **C**

Plugin the values of \(x\) in the choices provided. The points are \((1,-1)\),\((2,-3)\),and \((3,-5)\)

For \((1,-1)\) check the options provided:

A. \(g(x)=2x+1→−1=2(1)+1→−1=3A.g(x)=2x+1→−1=2(1)+1→−1=3\) This is NOT true.

B. \(g(x)=2x−1→−1=2(1)−1=1B.g(x)=2x−1→−1=2(1)−1=1\) This is NOT true.

C. \(g(x)=−2x+1→−1=2(−1)+1→−1=−1C.g(x)=−2x+1→−1=2(−1)+1→−1=−1\) This is true.

C. \(g(x)=x+2→−1=1+2→−1=3C.g(x)=x+2→−1=1+2→−1=3\) This is NOT true.

10- **B**

To solve the equation for \(y\), multiply both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of \(\frac{6}{5}\), which is \(\frac{5}{6}\),

this gives \(\frac{5}{6}× \frac{6}{5}y=\frac{3}{2} ×\frac{5}{6}\), which simplifies to

\(y=\frac{15}{12}=\frac{5}{4}\)
