## Answers:

1- **B**

The smallest number is \(-16\). To find the largest possible value of one of the other five integers, we need to choose the smallest possible integers for four of them. Let \(x\) be the largest number. Then: \(-80=(-16)+(-15)+(-14)+(-13)+(-12)+x→\)

\(-80=-70+x , →x=-80+70=-10\)

2- **A**

The equation of a line in slope intercept form is: \(y=mx+b\), Solve for \(y\).

\(2x-4y=24⇒-4y=24-2x⇒y=(24-2x)÷(-4)⇒y=\frac{1}{2} x-6\)

The slope is \(\frac{1}{2}\). The slope of the line perpendicular to this line is:

\(m_{1}×m_{2}= -1⇒\frac{1}{2} ×m_{2}=-1⇒m_{2}=-2\)

3-** D**

If the length of the box is \(24\), then the width of the box is one third of it, \(8\), and the height of the box is \(4\) (half of the width). The volume of the box is:

V\(=\)(length)(width)(height)\(=(24)(8)(4)=768\) cm\(^3\)

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

A.\(59, 70\%\) of \(59 = 0.70×59=41.3 \)

B.\(45, 70\%\) of \(45=0.70×45=31.5\)

C.\(72, 70\%\) of \(72=0.70×72=50.4\)

D.\(20, 70\%\) of \(20=0.70×20=14\)

E. \(11, 70\%\) of \(11=0.70×11=7.7\)

5- **A**

The amount of money for \(x\) bookshelf is: \( 200x\), Then, the total cost of all bookshelves is equal to: \(200x+600\), The total cost, in dollar, per bookshelf is: \(\frac{Total \ cost}{number \ of \ items}=\frac{200x+600}{x}\)

6- **A**

\(\frac{14+18}{2}=\frac{32}{2}=16\) Then, \(16-14=2\)

7- **A**

Alex’s mark is F less than Jason’s mark. Then, from the choices provided Alex’s mark can only be \(18-F\).

8- **E**

\(\frac{8160}{240}≅340.0083≅340\)

9- **E**

Let \(x\) be the original price. If the price of the sofa is decreased by \(50\%\) to \($530\), then: \(50\%\) of \(x=530 ⇒ 0.50x=530 ⇒ x=530÷0.50=1,060\)

10- **E**

Let’s review the choices provided:

A.\(x=3→\) The perimeter of the figure is: \(3+5+3+3+3=17≠33\)

B.\(x=4→\) The perimeter of the figure is: \(3+5+3+4+4=19≠33\)

C.\(x=6→\) The perimeter of the figure is: \(3+5+3+6+6=23≠33\)

D.\(x=8→\) The perimeter of the figure is: \(3+5+3+8+8=27≠33\)

E.\(x=11→\) The perimeter of the figure is: \(3+5+3+11+11=33=33\)
