## Answers:

1- **D**

\(\frac{7}{25} = 0.28\)

2- **B**

\(\frac{240}{8} < x < \frac{320}{8}\)

\(30 < x < 40\)

Then:

Only choice b is correct

3- **A**

\((4.2 + 4.3 + 4.5) x = x\)

\(13x = x\)

Then \(x = 0\)

4- **D**

For sum of 6: (1 & 5) and (5 & 1), (2 & 4) and (4 & 2), (3 & 3), therefore we have 5 options.

For sum of 9: (3 & 6) and (6 & 3), (4 & 5) and (5 & 4), we have 4 options.

To get a sum of 6 or 9 for two dice: \(5 + 4 = 9\)

Since, we have \(6 × 6 = 36\) total number of options, the probability of getting a sum of 6 and 9 is 9 out of 36 or \(\frac{9}{36}=\frac{1}{4}\).

5- **C**

Simplify:

\(\frac{\frac{1}{2}-\frac{x + 5}{4}}{\frac{x^2}{2}-\frac{5}{2}}=\frac{\frac{1}{2}-\frac{x + 5}{4}}{\frac{x^2 – 5}{2}}=\frac{2(\frac{1}{2}-\frac{x + 5}{4})}{x^2 – 5}\)

⇒Simplify:

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

then:

\(\frac{2(\frac{-x – 3}{4})}{x^2 – 5}=\frac{\frac{-x – 3}{2}}{x^2 – 5}=\frac{- x – 3}{2(x^2 – 5)}=\frac{- x – 3}{2x^2 – 10}\)

6- **B**

\(x_{1,2} =\frac{-b ± \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\)

\(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\)

\(4x^2 + 14x + 6 = 0\)

⇒ then: \(a = 4, b = 14\) and \(c = 6\)

\(x = \frac{-14 + \sqrt {14^2 – 4 .4 .6}}{2 .4} = – \frac{1}{2}\)

\(x = \frac{-14 – \sqrt {14^2 – 4 .4 .6}}{2.4}= – 3\)

7- **D**

Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last) method.

\((x + 7)(x + 5) = x^2 + 5x + 7x + 35 = x^2 + 12x + 3\)

8- **D**

Solve for \(x\).

\(-2≤2x-4<8\)⇒ (add 4 all sides) \(-2+4≤2x-4+4<8+4\)

⇒ \( 2≤2x<12\)

⇒ (divide all sides by 2) \(1 ≤ x < 6\)

\(x\) is between 1 and 6. Choice D represents this inequality.

9- **A**

\(|9 – (12 ÷ | 2 – 5 |)| = |(9-(12÷|-3|))|=|9-(12÷3)|=|9-4|=|5|=5\)

10- **C**

\(2 – 10 ÷ (4^2 ÷ 2) = 2 – 10 ÷ (16 ÷ 2) = 2 – 10 ÷ (8) = – 8 ÷ 8 = \ – 1\)
