The mean of numbers 4, 6, 4, 7, (x + 1), 8 and 2 is 5 find the median of the numbers
A.
(A) 4
B.
(B.) 4.5
C.
(C.) 5
D.
(D.) 5.5
Correct Answer
A. (A) 4
Explanation The mean of a set of numbers is found by adding up all the numbers and then dividing by the total number of numbers. In this case, the sum of the numbers 4, 6, 4, 7, (x + 1), 8, and 2 is 31 + (x + 1). To find the mean, we divide this sum by 7 (since there are 7 numbers in the set). So, the mean is (31 + (x + 1))/7 = 5. Multiplying both sides by 7 gives us 31 + (x + 1) = 35. Simplifying, we get x = 2.
Now that we know x = 2, we can substitute it back into the set of numbers and find the median. The numbers are 4, 6, 4, 7, (2 + 1), 8, and 2. When arranged in ascending order, the set becomes 2, 4, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 3. The median is the middle number, which is 4. Therefore, the correct answer is (A) 4.

Simplify 8^{n} x 2^{2n} ÷ 4^{3n}
A.
A. 2^{-n}
B.
B. 2^{1-n}
C.
C. 2^{n}
D.
D. 2^{n+1}
Correct Answer
A. A. 2^{-n}
Explanation The given expression can be simplified by using the laws of exponents. When dividing two numbers with the same base, we subtract the exponents. In this case, 8n divided by 43n can be simplified to 8n-3n, which equals 2n. Then, when multiplying two numbers with the same base, we add the exponents. Therefore, 2n multiplied by 22n can be simplified to 2n+n, which equals 3n. So, the final simplified expression is 3n divided by 43n, which can be further simplified to 3n-n, which equals 2-n.

B.
(B.) 6. - 4
C.
(C.) 6, 4
D.
(D) -6, 4
Correct Answer
D. (D) -6, 4
Explanation To solve the equation x^2 + 2x + 1 = 25, we first subtract 25 from both sides to get x^2 + 2x - 24 = 0. Then, we factor the quadratic equation to get (x + 6)(x - 4) = 0. Setting each factor equal to zero, we find x = -6 and x = 4. Therefore, the correct answer is (D) -6, 4.

C.
(C.) 1001101
D.
(D.) 101101
Correct Answer
B. (B) 1011001
Explanation To convert a number to base two (binary), we divide the number by 2 repeatedly and record the remainders. Starting with 89, we divide it by 2 to get a quotient of 44 and a remainder of 1. We then divide 44 by 2 to get a quotient of 22 and a remainder of 0. Continuing this process, we get remainders of 1, 1, 0, 0, and 1. Reading the remainders from bottom to top, we get 1011001, which matches option (B).

Solve the simultaneous equation y =3x, 4y – 5x = 14
A.
(A.) -2, -6
B.
(B) 2,6
C.
(C.) 2,-6
D.
(D.) -1,-3
Correct Answer
B. (B) 2,6
Explanation The correct answer is (B) 2,6. To solve the simultaneous equations, we can substitute the value of y from the first equation into the second equation. Substituting y = 3x into 4y - 5x = 14 gives 4(3x) - 5x = 14. Simplifying this equation gives 12x - 5x = 14, which simplifies further to 7x = 14. Dividing both sides by 7 gives x = 2. Substituting this value back into the first equation gives y = 3(2) = 6. Therefore, the solution to the simultaneous equations is x = 2 and y = 6.

C.
(C) 5x^{2}z
D.
(D) 5y^{2}z^{3}
Correct Answer
D. (D) 5y^{2}z^{3}
Explanation To simplify the given expression, we divide the coefficients and subtract the exponents of the variables. In this case, the coefficient 15 is divided by 3 to give 5. The variable x has an exponent of 2 in the numerator and an exponent of 2 in the denominator, so they cancel out. The variable y has an exponent of 3 in the numerator and an exponent of 1 in the denominator, so we subtract 1 from 3 to get an exponent of 2. The variable z has an exponent of 1 in the numerator and an exponent of -2 in the denominator, so we subtract -2 from 1 to get an exponent of 3. Therefore, the simplified expression is 5y2z3.

B.
(B) 8/13
C.
(C) 12/13
D.
(D) 13/9
Correct Answer
D. (D) 13/9
Explanation To simplify the given expression, we first need to find the common denominator for the fractions. The common denominator for 4 and 3 is 12.
Next, we can add the fractions (3/4 + 1/3) by converting them to have the common denominator of 12.
(3/4) * (3/3) = 9/12
(1/3) * (4/4) = 4/12
Now, we can add these fractions together:
9/12 + 4/12 = 13/12
Next, we multiply this sum by 41/3:
(13/12) * (41/3) = (13 * 41) / (12 * 3) = 533/36
Finally, we subtract 31/4 from this result:
(533/36) - (31/4) = (533/36) - (279/36) = 254/36 = 127/18
Therefore, the simplified expression is 127/18, which is equivalent to 13/9.

(A) 65m^{2}
B.
(B.) 84m^{2}
C.
(C.) 124m^{2}
D.
(D.) 51m^{2}
Correct Answer
A. (A) 65m^{2}
Explanation The perimeter of a rectangle is equal to the sum of all its sides. In this case, the perimeter is given as 36cm. The dimensions of the rectangle are given as x+1m and 2x+5m. To find the perimeter, we add these dimensions together: (x+1m) + (2x+5m) + (x+1m) + (2x+5m) = 36cm. Simplifying this equation gives us 6x + 12m = 36cm. Solving for x gives us x = 4cm. Substituting this value back into the dimensions, we get the length as 5m and the width as 13m. The area of a rectangle is calculated by multiplying the length and width, which gives us 5m * 13m = 65m2. Therefore, the correct answer is (A) 65m2.

(A) 10m
B.
(B) 20m
C.
(C) 40m
D.
(D) 15m
Correct Answer
B. (B) 20m
Explanation The angle of elevation of X from Y is 30°. This means that the angle formed between the horizontal line passing through Y and the line of sight from Y to X is 30°. Since the length of XY is given as 40m, we can use trigonometry to find the height of X above the level of Y. By using the sine function, we can set up the equation sin(30°) = height/40m. Solving for height, we get height = 40m * sin(30°) = 20m. Therefore, X is 20m above the level of Y.

Explanation To simplify the given expression in base 7, we need to add the numbers together and then convert the sum to base 7.
Adding 257, 3117, and 3437 gives us 6808.
To convert this sum to base 7, we divide it by 7 repeatedly and record the remainders.
6808 divided by 7 is 972 remainder 4.
972 divided by 7 is 138 remainder 6.
138 divided by 7 is 19 remainder 5.
19 divided by 7 is 2 remainder 5.
2 divided by 7 is 0 remainder 2.
Reading the remainders in reverse order gives us 25156 in base 7.

A. A. ^{8xz}/_{10}
Explanation The expression 8x^2/10xy can be simplified by canceling out common factors. In this case, we can cancel out the 8 and the 10 to get 1/5. Additionally, we can cancel out one of the x's from the numerator and denominator to get x/1. Finally, we are left with z in the numerator and y in the denominator. Therefore, the simplified expression is 8xz/10 = 4xz/5.
