      D. 15

    Correct Answer
    D. D. 15
    Explanation
    The mean of a set of numbers is found by adding up all the numbers and dividing by the total number of numbers. In this case, the mean is 13. To find the value of x, we can set up an equation: (12 + 11 + 14 + x) / 4 = 13. Simplifying this equation, we get (37 + x) / 4 = 13. Cross multiplying, we get 37 + x = 52. Subtracting 37 from both sides, we find that x = 15. Therefore, the value of x is 15.

    41. Express as a single number: 3.8 x 104 – 9.7 103           

    • A.

      A. 28300

    • B.

      B. 28700

    • C.

      C. 59700

    • D.

      D. 49700

    Correct Answer
    A. A. 28300
    Explanation
    To express the given expression as a single number, we need to subtract 9.7 x 10^3 from 3.8 x 10^4. This can be done by subtracting the coefficients and keeping the base (10) and exponent (4) the same. 3.8 - 9.7 = -5.9, and since both numbers have the same exponent of 10^4, the answer is -5.9 x 10^4. However, the question asks for a positive single number, so we take the absolute value of -5.9 to get 5.9. Therefore, the correct answer is 5.9 x 10^4, which is equivalent to 59000.

    42. If 2x0 and 4x0 are supplementary  angles. What is the value of x?                

    • A.

      A. 750

    • B.

      B. 600

    • C.

      C. 450

    • D.

      D. 300

    Correct Answer
    D. D. 300
    Explanation
    The question states that 2x0 and 4x0 are supplementary angles. Supplementary angles are two angles that add up to 180 degrees. Therefore, we can set up the equation 2x0 + 4x0 = 180. Simplifying this equation, we get 6x0 = 180. Dividing both sides by 6, we find that x0 = 30. Therefore, the value of x is 300.

    43. If 15 men dig a trench for 10 days, how many men  will be required to dig the trench in 2 days?  

    • A.

      A. 150 men

    • B.

      B. 75 men

    • C.

      C. 60 men

    • D.

      D. 30 men

    Correct Answer
    B. B. 75 men
    Explanation
    If 15 men can dig a trench in 10 days, it means that the rate at which they dig is 1/10th of the trench per day. In other words, each man digs 1/150th of the trench per day. To complete the trench in 2 days, the total number of men required would be 2 times the number of men required to complete the trench in 1 day. Therefore, 2 * 15 = 30 men would be required to dig the trench in 2 days. Since the options provided do not include 30, the closest option is B. 75 men, which is twice the required number.

      B. 5.50

    • C.

      C. 5.00

    • D.

      D. 4.00

    Correct Answer
    C. C. 5.00
    Explanation
    To find the mean score, we need to add up all the scores and then divide by the total number of scores. Adding up the scores gives us 2 + 3 + 0 + 8 + 7 + 5 + 9 + 6 = 40. Since there are 8 scores, we divide 40 by 8 to get the mean score of 5.00. Therefore, the correct answer is C. 5.00.

    • C.

      C. Twenty – three trillion and five hundred billion

    • D.

      D. Twenty 0- three trillion and four hundred billion

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Twenty – three trillion and five hundred billion
    Explanation
    When rounding off to 3 significant figures, we look at the digit in the fourth place. If it is 5 or greater, we round up the preceding digit. In this case, the digit in the fourth place is 5, so we round up the preceding digit. Therefore, the rounded value is 23 456 713 500 150. In words, this is twenty-three trillion and five hundred billion.

      B. -2

    • C.

      C. -3

    • D.

      D. 2

    Correct Answer
    B. B. -2
    Explanation
    To simplify the given expression, we first combine the like terms. The like terms in the expression are -4X and -2X, which can be combined to give -6X. The expression now becomes -6X - 3 / -2X6. Next, we simplify the expression further by dividing -6X by -2X6. The X terms cancel out, leaving us with -6 / -2. Simplifying this further gives us 3. However, since the negative signs in the numerator and denominator cancel out, the final answer is -3. Therefore, the correct answer is B. -2.

    • C.

      C. (a+3) (a+27)

    • D.

      D. (a+1)(a+81)

    Correct Answer
    B. B. (a+9) (a+9)
    Explanation
    The given expression can be factorized as (a+9)(a+9). This can be determined by using the formula for factoring a quadratic expression, which states that if the expression can be written in the form ax^2 + bx + c, then it can be factorized as (x+p)(x+q), where p and q are the factors of c that add up to b. In this case, a=1, b=18, and c=81. The factors of 81 that add up to 18 are 9 and 9, so the expression can be factorized as (a+9)(a+9).
