Answers:

1- D
Use FOIL (First, Out, In, Last)
\((x + 7) (x + 5) = x^2 + 5x + 7x + 35 = x^2 + 12x + 35\)

2- A
\(\frac{54}{6}=\frac{27}{3}=9\)
\(\frac{48}{6}=\frac{24}{3}= 8\)
\(\frac{36}{6}=\frac{18}{3}=6\)
\(\frac{59}{6}=\frac{59}{6}\)
59 is prime number

3- B
\(x^2 – 81 = 0 ⇒ x^2 = 81 ⇒ x = 9\)

4- C
If \( a = 8\) then \(b =\frac{8^2}{4} + 4\) ⇒ \(b = \frac{64}{4} + 4 ⇒ b = 16 + 4 = 20\)

5- A
If \(6.5 < x ≤ 9.0\), then x cannot be equal to 6.5

6- A
\(a=6\)⇒ area of triangle is \(=\frac{1}{2} (6×6)=\frac{36}{2}=18 cm\)

7- B
Simplify:
\( 10 – \frac{2}{3} x ≥ 12 ⇒ – \frac{2}{3}2 x ≥ 2 ⇒ – x ≥ 3 ⇒ x ≤ – 3\)

8- A
Factor each trinomial \(x^2 – 2x – 8\) and \(x^2 – 6x + 8 \)
\(x^2 – 2x – 8 ⇒ (x – 4)(x + 2) \)
\(x^2 – 6x + 8 ⇒ (x – 2)(x – 4)\)

9- B
\(\frac{1+b}{6b^2}=\frac{1}{b^2}\)
\(⇒(b≠0) b^2+b^3=6b^2⇒b^3-5b^2=0⇒b^2 (b-5)=0⇒b-5=0⇒b=5\)

10- C
\(53^\circ + 45^\circ= 98^\circ\)
\(180^\circ– 98^\circ= 82^\circ\)
The value of the third angle is \(82^\circ\).
