### Regala Company manufactures beds; in its catalogue, a double bed is priced at P5.000.00 less a discount of 20%. What will Rizza have to pay for the bed she ordered?

• A.

P4,150.00

• B.

P4.100.00

• C.

P4,200.00

• D.

P4.000.00

D. P4.000.00
Explanation
The original price of the double bed is P5,000.00. The discount is 20% of the original price, which is P5,000.00 x 0.20 = P1,000.00. To calculate the final price, we subtract the discount from the original price: P5,000.00 - P1,000.00 = P4,000.00. Therefore, Rizza will have to pay P4,000.00 for the bed she ordered.

### Clara Ramos works as a sales clerk. She is paid a salary of P3,000.00 a week plus 2% commission on sales over P4.000.00. Find her gross pay for a week in which her sales amounts to P9.500.00

• A.

P3.500.00

• B.

P3.250.00

• C.

P3,110.00

• D.

P3.210.00

C. P3,110.00
Explanation
Clara Ramos earns a fixed salary of P3,000.00 per week. In addition to her salary, she receives a 2% commission on sales over P4,000.00. Her sales for the week amount to P9,500.00, which is P5,500.00 over the threshold. Thus, her commission would be 2% of P5,500.00, which is P110.00. Adding her commission to her salary, her gross pay for the week would be P3,000.00 + P110.00 = P3,110.00.

### A Toyota car travelling at a rate of 70km. per hour leaves the house 2 hours after a Kia  car has left and overtakes it in 5 hours at what rate was the Kia car travelling?

• A.

40 kilometers per hour

• B.

30 kilomeneters per hour

• C.

50 kilometers per hour

• D.

20 kilometers per hour

C. 50 kilometers per hour
Explanation
The Toyota car travels at a rate of 70 km per hour and overtakes the Kia car in 5 hours. Since the Toyota car left 2 hours after the Kia car, the Kia car has been traveling for a total of 7 hours (2 hours before the Toyota car left and 5 hours until it was overtaken). To find the rate at which the Kia car was traveling, we divide the distance traveled (which is the same for both cars) by the time taken. Therefore, the rate at which the Kia car was traveling is 70 km divided by 7 hours, which equals 10 km per hour.

### How many prime numbers are there between 1 and 100?

• A.

24

• B.

23

• C.

22

• D.

25

D. 25
Explanation
There is an error in the given answer. The correct answer is 25. This is because there are a total of 25 prime numbers between 1 and 100. Prime numbers are numbers that are only divisible by 1 and themselves, and in this range, the prime numbers are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, and 97.

### What number must be subtracted from both numerator and denominator of the fraction 11/23 to give a fraction whose value is 2/5?

• A.

4

• B.

2

• C.

5

• D.

3

D. 3
Explanation
To find the number that must be subtracted from both the numerator and denominator of the fraction 11/23 to give a fraction whose value is 2/5, we can set up the equation (11 - x)/(23 - x) = 2/5. Cross multiplying gives us 5(11 - x) = 2(23 - x). Expanding the equation and simplifying, we get 55 - 5x = 46 - 2x. Solving for x, we find that x = 3. Therefore, the number that must be subtracted from both the numerator and denominator is 3.

### The halfway between 3/7 and 4/7 is

• A.

1/2

• B.

1/8

• C.

1/4

• D.

1/3

A. 1/2
Explanation
The halfway between 3/7 and 4/7 can be found by taking the average of the two fractions. Adding 3/7 and 4/7 gives us 7/7, which simplifies to 1. Dividing 1 by 2 gives us 1/2, which is the halfway point between the two fractions. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/2.

Rate this question:

### A recipe calls for 2 cups of milk for every 7 cups of flour. A chef will use 28 cups of flour, how many cups of milk must he have?

• A.

12

• B.

10

• C.

14

• D.

8

D. 8
Explanation
The recipe states that for every 7 cups of flour, 2 cups of milk are needed. If the chef is using 28 cups of flour, we can set up a proportion to find the amount of milk needed. Since 7 cups of flour correspond to 2 cups of milk, we can set up the proportion 7/2 = 28/x, where x represents the amount of milk needed. Cross-multiplying gives us 7x = 56, and dividing both sides by 7 gives us x = 8. Therefore, the chef must have 8 cups of milk.

### If Karl has an average of 76% on his first two tests and has an average of 85% on the next four tests, what is his final average on all six tests?

• A.

82.5%

• B.

80.5%

• C.

81.3%

• D.

82.0%

D. 82.0%
Explanation
Karl's final average on all six tests is 82.0%. This can be calculated by finding the weighted average of his first two tests and his next four tests. Since the first two tests have an average of 76% and the next four tests have an average of 85%, we can calculate the weighted average using the formula: (average of first two tests * weight) + (average of next four tests * weight) / (total weight). In this case, the weight for each set of tests is equal, so the formula simplifies to: (76% + 85%) / 2 = 82%. Therefore, Karl's final average on all six tests is 82.0%.

### A room is 30ft long, 25ft wide and 14ft high. If 42 balloons are inside the room, how many cubic feet of space does this allow for each balloon?

• A.

11

• B.

12

• C.

12.5

• D.

11.9

A. 11
Explanation
Each balloon takes up a certain amount of space in the room. To find out how much space each balloon takes up, we need to divide the total volume of the room by the number of balloons. The volume of the room is calculated by multiplying the length, width, and height together (30ft x 25ft x 14ft = 10,500 cubic feet). Dividing this by the number of balloons (10,500 cubic feet / 42 balloons) gives us an answer of 250 cubic feet per balloon. However, since we are asked for the answer in whole numbers, we round down to the nearest whole number, which is 11. Therefore, each balloon takes up 11 cubic feet of space.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### What percent of 75 is 15?

• A.

30%

• B.

40%

• C.

20%

• D.

38%

C. 20%
Explanation
To find out what percent of 75 is 15, we can set up a proportion. We can write it as 15/75 = x/100, where x represents the unknown percentage. By cross-multiplying, we get 75x = 1500. Dividing both sides by 75, we find that x = 20. Therefore, 15 is 20% of 75.

### The measure of an angle is 25 more than its supplement. What is the measure of the larger angle?

• A.

102.5 degrees

• B.

77.5 degrees

• C.

110.5 degrees

• D.

95.5 degrees

A. 102.5 degrees
Explanation
The measure of an angle is 25 more than its supplement. This means that the two angles are supplementary, meaning they add up to 180 degrees. Let's call the smaller angle x. The larger angle is then x + 25. Since the two angles are supplementary, we can set up the equation x + (x + 25) = 180. Simplifying this equation, we get 2x + 25 = 180. Solving for x, we find that x = 77.5. Therefore, the larger angle is x + 25 = 77.5 + 25 = 102.5 degrees.

• B.

3 / (9 - 3)

• C.

(x + 3) / 3

• D.

(x - 3) / 3

A. 3 / (x + 3)
Explanation
The given expression is a rational expression, specifically a fraction. To simplify it, we can factor the numerator and denominator. The numerator, 3x - 9, can be factored out as 3(x - 3). The denominator, x^2 - 9, is a difference of squares and can be factored as (x + 3)(x - 3). Canceling out the common factor of (x - 3) in the numerator and denominator leaves us with 3/(x + 3). Therefore, the correct answer is 3/(x + 3).
