## Answers:

1- **E**

If \(30\) percent of a number is \(60\), then the number is: \(30\%\) of \(x=60→0.3x=60→x=\frac{60}{0.3}=\frac{600}{3}=200, 20\) percent of \(200\) is:\(20\%\) of \(200=\frac{20}{100}×200=40\)

2- **D**

\(2×0.4=0.8\), all choices provided are equal to \(0.8\) except option D. \(\frac{5}{15}×3=1\)

3- **C**

Sara has M books. Mary has \(6\) more books than Sara. Then, Mary has \(M+6 \) books. If Mary gives Sara \(4\) books, Mary will have: \(M+6-4=M+2\)

4- **E**

If \(\frac{x}{2}=30\), then \(\frac{3x}{2}\) is \(3\) times \(\frac{x}{2}\). The answer is \(90\).

5- **D**

\(\frac{1}{6}\) of \(40\) is \(6.66\). Let’s review the choices provided:

A. \( 0.3×6=1.8\)

B. \( 0.3×5=1.5\)

C \( 0.2×30=6\)

D \( 0.2×35=7\)

E \( 0.2×39.5=7.9\)

Option D is the closest to \(6.66\)

6- **B**

The diagonal of the square is \(8\). Let \(x\) be the side.

Use Pythagorean Theorem: \(a^2+b^2=c^2\)

\(x^2 +x^2 = 8^2 ⇒ 2x^2 = 8^2 ⇒ 2x^2 = 64 ⇒x^2 = 32 ⇒x= \sqrt{32}\)

The area of the square is: \(\sqrt{32}×\sqrt{32}=32\)

7- **B**

The sum of supplement angles is \(180\). Let \(x \) be that angle. Therefore, \(x+5x=180\)

\(6x=180\), divide both sides by \(6: x=30\)

8- **B**

Use the formula for Percent of Change: \(\frac{New \ Value-Old \ Value}{Old Value}×100\% \)

\(\frac{28-44}{44}×100\%≈-36\%\) (negative sign here means that the new price is less than old price)

9- **B**

One liter \(=1,000 \) cm\(^3 → 6\) liters \(=6,000\) cm\(^3 \), \(6,000=25×5×h→h=\frac{6,000}{125}=48\) cm

10- **A**

The perimeter of the trapezoid is \(64\).

Therefore, the missing side (height) is \(= 64-18- 12-14 = 20\)

Area of the trapezoid: A \(= \frac{1}{2} h (b_{1}+b_{2 })= \frac{1}{2} (10) (12 + 14)=260\)
