## Answers:

1- **B**

Plug in each pair of number in the equation:

\((2, 1): 2 (2) + 4 (1) = 8\) Nope!

\((–1, 2): 2 (–1) + 4 (2) = 6\) Bingo!

\((–2, 2): 2 (–2) + 4 (2) = 4\) Nope!

\((2, 2): 2 (2) + 4 (2) = 12\) Nope!

\((2, 8): 2 (2) + 4 (8) = 36\) Nope!

2- **D**

Here we can substitute 8 for \(x\) in the equation. Thus, \(y-3=2(8+5), y-3=26\)

Adding 3 to both sides of the equation: \(y=26+3, y=29\)

3- **D**

Use Pythagorean Theorem: \(a^2+b^2=c^2⇒5^2+12 ^2=c^2⇒169=c^2⇒c=13\)

4- **E**

The ratio of boys 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.

\(500÷5=100 ⇒100 × 2=200\)

5- **E**

Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last).\((7x+2y)(5x+2y)= \)

\(35x^2+14xy+10xy+4y^2=\)

\(35x^2+ 24xy+4y^2\)

6- **E**

Use distributive property: \(5x(4+2y)=20x+10xy\)

7- **E**

\(y=5ab+3b^3\). Plug in the values of a and b in the equation: \(a=2\) and \(b=3\).

\(y=5 (2)(3)+3 (3)^3=30+3(27)=30+81=111\)

8- **D**

\(x\) and \(z\) are colinear. \(y\) and \(5x\) are colinear. Therefore,

\(x+z=y+5x\),subtract \(x\) from both sides,then,\(z=y+4x\)

9- **B**

\(|x-10|≤3→-3≤x-10≤3→-3+10≤x-10+10≤3+10→7≤x≤13\)

10- **C**

Let \(x\) be the number. Write the equation and solve for \(x\). \(\frac{2}{3} ×15= \frac{2}{5}\). \(x⇒\frac{2×15}{3}=\frac{2x}{5 }\), use cross multiplication to solve for \(x\). \(5×30=2x×3⇒150=6x⇒x=25\)
