## Answers:

1- **A**

There are 65 cards in the bag and 13 of them are white. Then, 13 out of 65 cards are white. You can write this as: \(\frac{13}{65}\).

To simplify this fraction, divide both numerator and denominator by 13. Then:

\(\frac{13}{65}=\frac{1}{5}\)

2- **B**

\(\frac{3}{11}\) means 3 is divided by 11. The fraction line simply means division or \(÷\). Therefore, we can write \(\frac{3}{11}\) as \(3 ÷ 11\).

3- **A**

Plug in 20 for A in the equations. Only option A works.

\(A+20=40\)

\(20+20=40\)

4- **D**

50 miles : 1 hour

425 miles : \(425 ÷ 50 = 8.5\) hours

5- **C**

Use percent formula:

\(part =\frac{percent}{100}× whole\)

\(50=\frac{percent}{100}× 40⇒ 50 = \frac{percent ×40}{100}⇒ 50 = \frac{percent ×4}{10}\)

multiply both sides by 10.

500 = percent \(×4\), divide both sides by 4.

125 = percent

6- **104**

First, find the missing side of the trapezoid. The perimeter of the trapezoid below is 52. Therefore, the missing side of the trapezoid (its height) is: \(52-12-18-14=52-44=8\)

Area of a trapezoid: \(A = \frac{1}{2} h (b_{1} + b_{2}) = \frac{1}{2} (8) (12 + 14) = 104\)

7- **B**

Use area and circumference of circle formula.

Area of a circle = \(πr^2 ⇒ 64π = πr^2 ⇒ r= 8\)

Circumference of a circle = \(2πr ⇒ C = 2×8×π ⇒ C =16π\)

8- **C**

1 meter of the rope = 800 grams 12.2 meter of the rope = \(12.2 × 800 =9,760 \)grams = 9.76 kilograms

9- **C**

\(\frac{1}{2} + \frac{4}{5} – \frac{3}{10} = \frac{(5×1)+(2×4)-(1×3)}{10} =\frac{10}{10}=1\)

10- **26**

To solve this problem, divide \(6\frac{1}{2}\) by \(\frac{1}{4}\).

\(6\frac{1}{2}÷\frac{1}{4}=\frac{13}{2}÷\frac{1}{4}=\frac{13}{2}×\frac{4}{1}=26\)
