### Find the LCM of 20, 24, and 30

• A.

(A) 120

• B.

(B) 40

• C.

(C) 60

• D.

(D) 74

A. (A) 120
Explanation
To find the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of 20, 24, and 30, we need to find the smallest number that is divisible by all three numbers. We can start by finding the prime factors of each number: 20 = 2^2 * 5, 24 = 2^3 * 3, and 30 = 2 * 3 * 5. Then, we take the highest power of each prime factor: 2^3 * 3 * 5 = 120. Therefore, the LCM of 20, 24, and 30 is 120.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Find the sum of 695 and 455 and then divide the result by the difference between 39 and 34.

• B.

(B) 230

• C.

(C) 259

• D.

(D)  247

B. (B) 230
Explanation
To find the sum of 695 and 455, we add them together: 695 + 455 = 1150.
Then, we find the difference between 39 and 34: 39 - 34 = 5.
Finally, we divide the sum (1150) by the difference (5): 1150 / 5 = 230.
Therefore, the correct answer is (B) 230.

(B) 867.84

• C.

(C)  1030.9

• D.

(D) 866.84

D. (D) 866.84
Explanation
The correct answer is (D) 866.84. To find the sum of 29.34 and 837.5, you need to add the two numbers together. Adding the decimal parts, 0.34 and 0.50, gives you 0.84. Adding the whole numbers, 29 and 837, gives you 866. Combining the two results, the sum is 866.84.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### Express  84 as a product of prime factors

• A.

(A) 2 x 2 x 7

• B.

(B) 2 x 2 x 3 x 7

• C.

(C) 2 x 3 x 3 x 7

• D.

(D) 2 x 3 x 7

B. (B) 2 x 2 x 3 x 7
Explanation
The number 84 can be expressed as a product of prime factors by repeatedly dividing it by prime numbers. Starting with the smallest prime number, 2, we divide 84 by 2 to get 42. We continue dividing 42 by 2 to get 21, and then divide 21 by 3 to get 7. Finally, we divide 7 by itself to get 1. Therefore, the prime factorization of 84 is 2 x 2 x 3 x 7.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Add up 315 and 231

• A.

(A) 456

• B.

(B) 465

• C.

(C) 564

• D.

(D) 546

D. (D) 546
Explanation
The correct answer is (D) 546. To find the sum of 315 and 231, you add the hundreds place, the tens place, and the ones place separately. In the hundreds place, 3 + 2 equals 5. In the tens place, 1 + 3 equals 4. In the ones place, 5 + 1 equals 6. Therefore, the sum of 315 and 231 is 546.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Which one of these numbers is not a common factor of 12 and 24?

• A.

(A) 5

• B.

(B) 2

• C.

(C) 4

• D.

(D) 3

A. (A) 5
Explanation
The number 5 is not a common factor of 12 and 24 because it does not divide evenly into either of them. The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12, while the factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, and 24. Therefore, the correct answer is (A) 5.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### Change to decimal 3/8

• A.

• B.

(B) 0.753

• C.

(C) 0.375

• D.

(D) 0.537

C. (C) 0.375
Explanation
To change a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator (top number) by the denominator (bottom number). In this case, dividing 3 by 8 gives 0.375. Therefore, the correct answer is (C) 0.375.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Evaluate 3 2/5 + 2 2/3

• A.

(A) 15 1/5

• B.

(B) 5 16/15

• C.

(C) 5 5/16

• D.

(D) 6 1/15

D. (D) 6 1/15
Explanation
To evaluate the given expression, we need to convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions. 3 2/5 can be written as (3*5 + 2)/5 = 17/5. 2 2/3 can be written as (2*3 + 2)/3 = 8/3. Now, we can add the fractions: (17/5) + (8/3). To add fractions with different denominators, we need to find a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 15. Converting both fractions to have a denominator of 15, we get: (17/5) * (3/3) = 51/15 (8/3) * (5/5) = 40/15 Adding the fractions: (51/15) + (40/15) = 91/15. Now, we can convert the improper fraction back into a mixed number: 91 ÷ 15 = 6 remainder 1. Therefore, the answer is 6 1/15, which matches option (D).

(C) 325.53

• D.

(D) 11.169

B. (B) 111.69
Explanation
The correct answer is (B) 111.69. To find the sum of 1.23 + 10.23 + 100.23, we simply add the three numbers together. 1.23 + 10.23 equals 11.46, and adding 100.23 to that gives us a total of 111.69. Therefore, the answer is 111.69.

### Convert 92% to fraction

• A.

(a) 29/50

• B.

(b) 23/25

• C.

(c) 32/52

• D.

(d) 92/5

B. (b) 23/25
Explanation
To convert a percentage to a fraction, we divide the percentage by 100 and simplify the fraction if possible. In this case, we divide 92 by 100 to get 0.92. Since 92 and 100 have a common factor of 4, we can simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 4. This gives us 23/25, which is the equivalent fraction for 92%. Therefore, the correct answer is (b) 23/25.

• C.

(c) -4a

• D.

(d) -3a

A. (a) -12ab
Explanation
The given expression (-4a) x (+3b) represents the product of -4a and +3b. To find the product, we multiply the coefficients (-4 and +3) and the variables (a and b) separately. The product of -4 and +3 is -12. The variables a and b are both present in the expression, so we include them in the product. Therefore, the simplified form of the expression is -12ab, which matches option (a).

• C.

(c) 14.47

• D.

(d) 14.467

C. (c) 14.47
Explanation
The correct answer is (c) 14.47. When expressing a number to 2 decimal places, we round the number to the nearest hundredth. In this case, 14.467 is closer to 14.47 than it is to 14.46, so we round up to 14.47.

Rate this question:

• 41.

### Find the value of +72 + (-168)

• A.

(a) +36

• B.

(b) +72

• C.

(c) -72

• D.

(d) -96

D. (d) -96
Explanation
The given expression is +72 + (-168). When we add a positive number and a negative number, we subtract the absolute value of the smaller number from the absolute value of the larger number and keep the sign of the larger number. In this case, the absolute value of -168 is larger than the absolute value of +72. So, we subtract 168 from 72 and keep the negative sign, resulting in -96.
