1- C
The weight of 12.2 meters of this rope is: $$12.2 × 600 g = 7320 g$$
$$1 kg = 1000 g$$
therefore,
$$7320 g ÷ 1000 = 7.32 kg$$

2- 600
The ratio of boys to girls is $$3:7$$.
Therefore, there are 3 boys out of 10 students. To find the answer, first divide the number of boys by 3, then multiply the result by 10.
$$180 ÷ 3 = 60 ⇒ 60 × 10 = 600$$

3- C
the population is increased by $$15\%$$ and $$20\%$$. $$15\%$$ increase changes the population to $$115\%$$ of original population.
For the second increase, multiply the result by $$120\%$$.
$$(1.15) × (1.20) = 1.38 = 138\%$$
38 percent of the population is increased after two years.

4- B
A linear equation is a relationship between two variables, $$x$$ and $$y$$, that can be put in the form $$y = mx + b$$.
A non-proportional linear relationship takes on the form $$y = mx + b$$, where $$b ≠ 0$$ and its graph is a line that does not cross through the origin.

5- C
The perimeter of the rectangle is: $$2x+2y=30→x+y=15→x=15-y$$
The area of the rectangle is: $$x×y=50→(15-y)(y)=50→y^2-15y+50=0$$
Solve the quadratic equation by factoring method.
$$(y-5)(y-10)=0→y=5$$
(Unacceptable, because y must be greater than 5) or $$y=10$$
If $$y=10 →x×y=50→x×10=50→x=5$$

6- A
Let $$x$$ be the number of new shoes the team can purchase. Therefore, the team can purchase 240 $$x$$.
The team had $40,000 and spent$22,000. Now the team can spend on new shoes \$18,000 at most.
Now, write the inequality: $$120x+22.000 ≤40.000$$

7- D
Use Pythagorean Theorem:
$$a^2 + b^2 = c^2$$
$$6^2 + 8^2 = c^2 ⇒ 100 = c^2 ⇒ c = 10$$

8- D
$$3x-5=8.5→3x=8.5 + 5=13.5→x = \frac{13.5}{3}= 4.5$$
Then;
$$5x+3=5 (4.5)+3=22.5+3=25.5$$

9- C
Use simple interest formula:
I=prt
(I = interest, p = principal, r = rate, t = time)
I$$=(8000)(0.045)(5)=1800$$

10- C
Let $$x$$ be the number of soft drinks for 252 guests. Write the proportion and solve for $$x$$.
$$\frac{10 soft drinks}{12 guests}=\frac{x}{252 guests}$$
$$x = \frac{252×10}{12}⇒x=210$$
