1- C
Set of number that are not composite between $$1$$ and $$25: A= {2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23}$$
$$Probability =\frac{number \space of \space desired \space outcomes}{number \space of \space total \space outcomes}=\frac{9}{25}$$

2- D
Check each option provided:
A.$$\frac{(4+5+8+11+12)}{5}=\frac{40}{5}=8$$
B. $$\frac{(1+5+8+11+12)}{5}=\frac{37}{5}=7.4$$
C. $$\frac{(1+4+8+11+12)}{5}=\frac{36}{5}=7.2$$
D. $$\frac{1+4+5+8+12}{5}=\frac{30}{5}=6$$
E. $$\frac{1+4+5+8+11}{5}=\frac{29}{5}=5.8$$

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

4- E
$$y = 4ab + 3b^3$$
Plug in the values of $$a$$ and $$b$$ in the equation: $$a = 2$$ and $$b = 3$$
$$y = 4 (2) (3) + 3 (3)3 = 24 + 3(27) = 24 + 81 = 105$$

5- D
$$(g – f)(x) = g(x) – f(x) = (– x^2 – 1 – 2x) – (5 + x) – x^2 – 1 – 2x – 5 – x = – x^2 – 3x – 6$$

6- B
To find the discount, multiply the number by $$(100\% –$$ rate of discount).
Therefore, for the first discount we get: $$(D)$$ $$(100\% – 20%$$)$$=$$ $$(D)$$ $$(0.80) = 0.80$$ $$D$$
For increase of $$10 \%$$: $$(0.80 D)$$ $$(100%$$$$+ 10%)$$) $$=$$ $$(0.80 D) (1.10)$$ $$= 0.88 D = 88\%$$ of $$D$$

7- B
1000 times the number is $$40.5$$. Let $$x$$ be the number, then:
$$1000x=40.5$$
$$x =\frac{40.5}{1000}=0.0405$$

8- B
Let’s review the options provided.
A. $$4$$. In $$4$$ years, David will be $$46$$ and Ava will be $$10. 46$$ is not $$4$$ times $$10$$.
B. $$6$$. In $$6$$ years, David will be $$48$$ and Ava will be $$12. 48$$ is $$4$$ times $$12$$!
C. $$8$$. In $$8$$ years, David will be $$80$$ and Ava will be $$14. 50$$ is not $$4$$ times $$14$$.
D. $$10$$. In $$10$$ years, David will be $$52$$ and Ava will be $$16. 52$$ is not $$4$$ times $$16$$.
E. $$14$$. In $$14$$ years, David will be $$56$$ and Ava will be $$20. 56$$ is not $$4$$ times $$20$$.

9- C
The area of the floor is: $$6 cm × 24 cm = 144 cm$$
The number is tiles needed $$= 144 ÷ 8 = 18$$

10- B
Write the numbers in order:
$$4, 5, 8, 9, 13, 15, 18$$
Since we have $$7$$ numbers ($$7$$ is odd), then the median is the number in the middle, which is $$9$$.
