If 30% of a number is 18, what is 150% of that number?
A.
54
B.
60
C.
90
D.
150
Correct Answer
C. 90
Explanation First, find the whole number: If 30% of the number is 18, then 10% is 6 (18 / 3 = 6). Therefore, 100% of the number is 60 (6 x 10 = 60).
To find 150%, calculate 50% of the number, which is 30 (60 / 2 = 30). Add this to the original number: 60 + 30 = 90.

Given the equation x^{2}+4x+3=0, what are the values of x?
A.
2 or 3
B.
-1 or -3
C.
1 or 3
D.
5 or -1
Correct Answer
B. -1 or -3
Explanation To solve the quadratic equation x^2 + 4x + 3 = 0, you can factorize it:
(x + 3)(x + 1) = 0
Setting each factor equal to zero gives:
x + 3 = 0
Solving for x, x = -3
x + 1 = 0
Solving for x, x = -1
Thus, the solutions for x are -1 and -3. These are the values that make the original equation true when substituted back into it.

Explanation The given sequence is increasing, and each number is obtained by doubling the previous number and then adding 1.
Starting with 3:
3 * 2 + 1 = 7
7 * 2 + 1 = 15
15 * 2 + 1 = 31
To find the next number, we apply the same pattern:
31 * 2 + 1 = 63
So, the next number in the sequence is 63.

Given the equation y^{2}+ 4=20, what are the values of y?
A.
4 only
B.
-4 only
C.
4 or -4
D.
16
Correct Answer
C. 4 or -4
Explanation To solve the equation y^2 + 4 = 20, first subtract 4 from both sides:
y^2 + 4 - 4 = 20 - 4
This simplifies to:
y^2 = 16
Next, find y by taking the square root of both sides. Remember, squaring a number results in a positive value, and the square root of a positive number has both a positive and negative solution:
y = sqrt(16)
This gives:
y = 4 and y = -4
Therefore, y equals both 4 and -4.

The price of an item increases by 20% and then decreases by 20%. What is the net effect on the price?
A.
Increased by 4%
B.
Decreased by 4%
C.
Increased by 0%
D.
Increased by 40%
Correct Answer
B. Decreased by 4%
Explanation When the price of an item increases by 20% and then decreases by 20%, the net effect is a decrease in the overall price. Here’s how it works:
Initial Price: Assume the original price is $100.
After 20% Increase:
New price = $100 + 20% of $100 = $100 + $20 = $120.
After 20% Decrease:
New price = $120 - 20% of $120 = $120 - $24 = $96.
So, the net effect is a 4% decrease in the original price. The final price is $96, which is less than the original price.

The ratio of girls to boys in a school is 5:7. If there are 525 girls, how many boys are there?
A.
375
B.
625
C.
735
D.
325
Correct Answer
C. 735
Explanation The ratio of girls to boys in the school is 5:7. This means for every 5 girls, there are 7 boys. Given there are 525 girls, we first determine how many times the part of the ratio (5) fits into the actual number of girls (525).
Calculate the multiplier for the ratio:
525 (number of girls) / 5 (girl ratio part) = 105
Now, use this multiplier to find the number of boys:
Multiply the boy ratio part by the multiplier:
7 (boy ratio part) x 105 (multiplier) = 735
Therefore, there are 735 boys in the school.

David and John share $455 in the ratio of 2:3, respectively. How much money does John get?
A.
$182
B.
$273
C.
$91
D.
$175
Correct Answer
B. $273
Explanation David and John share $455 in the ratio of 2:3. This means for every 2 units that David receives, John receives 3 units. To find out how much money each person gets, you first need to determine the total number of parts into which the money is divided:
Total parts = 2 (David) + 3 (John) = 5 parts
Now, calculate the value of one part:
Value of one part = Total money / Total parts = $455 / 5 = $91
Finally, calculate how much John receives by multiplying the value of one part by the number of parts John receives:
Money John receives = 3 parts x $91/part = $273
Therefore, John receives $273.

If x-12y = 0, what is y/x?
A.
1/6
B.
12
C.
1/12
D.
None
Correct Answer
C. 1/12
Explanation To find the ratio of y/x from the equation x-12y = 0, first rearrange the equation to solve for y in terms of x. By moving all terms involving y to one side and all other terms to the opposite side, we get x = 12y. Now, divide both sides of this equation by x to isolate y/x on one side. This gives us y/x = 1/12. Hence, the value of y/x equals 1/12. This is calculated by dividing the coefficient of y by the coefficient of x in the rearranged equation.

What is the result when you reduce $80 by 11%?
A.
$8.80
B.
$71.20
C.
$69
D.
None
Correct Answer
B. $71.20
Explanation To find the amount remaining after reducing $80 by 11%, first calculate 11% of $80. Multiply 80 by 0.11 to get the reduction amount. This calculation gives 80 * 0.11 = $8.80. Now, subtract this amount from the original $80 to find the reduced total. The calculation is 80 - 8.80 = $71.20. Therefore, when you reduce $80 by 11%, you will get $71.20. This result is achieved by applying the percentage reduction to the original amount and subtracting the calculated value from the original total.
