## Answers:

1- **B**

An easy way to tell whether a large number is odd or even is to look at its final digit. If the number ends with an odd digit \((1, 3, 5, 7, or 9)\), then it’s odd. On the other hand, if the number ends with an even digit or \(0 (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8)\), then it is even.

15, 29 and 83 ends with odd digit, so they are odd numbers.

2- **D**

She saves $36 and $28 so she has $64.

\($140 – $64 = $76\) she needs to save.

3- **D**

Michelle divide 72 books in 9 boxes therefore \(72 ÷ 9\) formula is correct.

4- **B**

Eva gave 349 of her 983 cards to her friend so her cards are \(983-349\), then she lost 260 cards so now she has \(983-349-260=374\) cards

5- **D**

Use are formula of rectangle:

\(Area= length × width\)

Area \(=3cm×7cm =21cm^2\)

6- **B**

Add 4hundred and 8 tens and 4ones

So we have :\(400 + 80 + 4 = 484\)

7- **A**

The chances of landing on red are 3 in 6

The chances of landing on yellow are 1 in 6

The chances of landing on green are 2 in 6

The chances of landing on red are more than other colors.

8- **C**

32inches distance most occur in this table.

9- **A**

10- **C**

All these equations are true:

\(98 – 31 = Z\)

\(98 – Z = 31\)

\(Z + 31 = 98\)
