## Answers:

1- **C**

Add the first \(5\) numbers. \(40+45+50+35+55=225\), To find the distance traveled in the next \(5\) hours, multiply the average by number of hours. Distance\(=\)Average\(×\) Rate\(=65× 5=325\). Add both numbers. \(325+225= 550\)

2- **B**

Use distance formula: Distance\(=\)Rate\(×\) time\(⇒420=65×T\), divide both sides by \(65.420÷65=T⇒T= 6.4\) hours. Change hours to minutes for the decimal part. \(0.4 \) hours\(=0.4×60=24\) minutes.

3- **D**

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

4- **D**

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- **D**

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

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

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

6- **D**

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

7- **D**

\(y=5ab+3b^3\). 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- **D**

The perimeter of the trapezoid is \(64\). Therefore, the missing side (height) is

\(=64-18-12-14=20\). Area of the trapezoid: \(A= \frac{1}{2} h (b_{1}+b_{2 })=

\frac{1}{2} (20) (12+14)=260\)

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 \(x\).

\(5×30=2x×3⇒150=6x⇒x=25\)
