## Answers:

1- **D**

In a group of \(5\) books, the average number of pages is \(24\). Therefore, the sum of pages in all \(5\) books is \((5×24=120) \). Mary adds a book with \(36\) pages to the group. Then, the sum of pages in all 6 books is \((5×24+36=156) \). The new average number of pages per book is:\(\frac{156}{6}=26\)

2- **B**

Choices A, C, D, and E are incorrect because \(70\%\) of each of the numbers is a non-whole number.

A. \( 49, 70\%\) of \(49 = 0.70×49=34.3\)

B. \( 40, 70\%\) of \(40=0.70×40=28\)

C. \( 32, 70\%\) of \(32=0.80×32=22.4\)

D. \( 12, 70\%\) of \(12=0.70×12=8.\)

E. \( 9, 70\%\) of \(9=0.80×9=6.3\)

3-** D**

\(\frac{2}{5}×35=\frac{70}{5}=14\)

4- **A**\(x=25+125=150\)

5- **D**

The red box is \(20\%\) bigger than the blue box. Let \(x\) be the capacity of the blue box. Then:

\(x+20\%\) of \(x=36→1.2x=36→x=\frac{36}{1.2}=30\)

6- **D**

\($8×10=$80\), Petrol use: \(10×2=20\) liters, Petrol cost: \(20×$1=$20\)

Money earned: \($80-$20=$60\)

7- **C**

From the choices provided, only C \((\frac{1}{7})\) is less than \(\frac{1}{5}\).

8- **E**

Amy earns \($30.00\) per hour now. \($30.00\) per hour is \(20\) percent more than her previous rate. Let \(x\) be her rate before her raise. Then: \(x+0.20x=30→1.2x=30→x=\frac{30}{1.2}=25\)

John earns ($28.80) per hour now. \($28.80\) per hour is \(20\) percent more than his previous rate. Let \(x\) be John’s rate before his raise. Then:\(x+0.20x=28.80→1.2x=28.80→x=\frac{28.80}{1.2}=24\), Amy earned \($1.00\) more per hour than John before their raises.

9- **C**

Three people can paint \(3\) houses in \(12\) days. It means that for painting \(6\) houses in \(12\) days we need \(6\) people. To paint \(6\) houses in \(6\) days, \(12\) people are needed.

10- **A**

\(N×(6-3)=12→N×3=12→N=4\)
