## Answers:

1- \(x^2+12x+35\)

Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last) \((x + 7) (x + 5) = x^2 + 5x + 7x + 35 = x^2 + 12x + 35\)

2- **54**

\( \frac{54}{6}=\frac{27}{6}=9\)

\(\frac{48}{6}=\frac{24}{3}=8\)

\(\frac{36}{6}=\frac{18}{3}=6\)

\(\frac{59}{6}=\frac{59}{6}\)

\(59\) is prime number

3- **9**

\( x^2 – 81 = 0 ⇒ x^2 = 81 ⇒ x = 9\)

4- **20**

If \(a = 8\) then \(b = \frac {8^2}{4}+ 4 ⇒ b = \frac {64}{4} + 4 ⇒b = 16 + 4 = 20\)

5- **240**

The ratio of boy to girls is \(2:3\). Therefore, there are 2 boys out of 5 students. To find the answer, first divide the total number of students by 5, then multiply the result by 2.

\(600 ÷ 5 = 120 ⇒ 120 × 2 = 240\)

6- **18**

\(a=6\)⇒ area of triangle is \( =\frac{1}{2} (6×6)=\frac{36}{2}=18\) cm

7- \(x\leq-3\)

Simplify. \( 10 – \frac{2}{3} x ≥ 12 ⇒ –\frac{2}{3} x ≥ 2 ⇒ – x ≥ 3 ⇒ x ≤ – 3\)

8- **\(x-4\)**

Factor each trinomial \( x^2 – 2x – 8 \) and \( x^2 – 6x + 8 \)

\(x^2 – 2x – 8 ⇒ (x – 4)(x + 2) \)

\(x^2 – 6x + 8 ⇒ (x – 2)(x – 4)\) The common Factor is: \((x – 4)\)

9- **5**

\( \frac{1+b}{6b^2}=\frac{1}{b^2} ⇒(b≠0)\)

\(b^2+b^3=6b^2⇒b^3-5b^2=0⇒b^2 (b-5)=0⇒b-5=0⇒b=5 \)

10- **\(82^\circ\)**

\(53^\circ + 45^\circ = 98^\circ\)

\(180^\circ – 98^\circ = 82^\circ\)

The value of the third angle is 82^\circ.
