6 hundreds - 2tens+10=

• A.

410

• B.

530

• C.

590

• D.

630

C. 590
Explanation
To solve the equation, we need to substitute the values of hundreds, tens, and units into the equation. We have 6 hundreds, so we can replace "6 hundreds" with 600. We have -2 tens, so we can replace "-2 tens" with -20. The equation becomes 600 - 20 + 10. Simplifying this, we get 590. Therefore, the correct answer is 590.

2 less than 72

• B.

2 less than 94

• C.

2 less than 96

• D.

2 less than 98

D. 2 less than 98
Explanation
Since the question asks for the expression that is the same as 22+74, we need to find the sum of 22 and 74, which is 96. Then, we need to subtract 2 from this sum, resulting in 94. Therefore, the expression "2 less than 94" is the same as 22+74.

Explanation
Mr X baked 78 cookies and packed them in packets of 8 cookies each. To find out how many cookies were left unpacked, we need to divide 78 by 8. When we do this, we get a quotient of 9 and a remainder of 6. This means that 9 packets of 8 cookies each were packed, leaving 6 cookies unpacked. Therefore, the correct answer is 6.

___x4=120. Doing which of these will give you the number in the box?

• A.

120x4

• B.

120/4

• C.

120+4

• D.

B. 120/4
Explanation
To find the number in the box, we need to perform an operation that results in the given number 120 when applied to the number in the box (x). Among the options given, dividing 120 by 4 (120/4) will give us the number in the box. This is because dividing 120 by 4 equals 30, which is the value of x that satisfies the equation x4=120.

2

• B.

2x9

• C.

2x37

• D.

9x37

C. 2x37
Explanation
To get from 7x37 to 9x37, we need to add the same value to 7x37 as we added to 37 to get 2x37. The value that was added in this case is 37, so we need to add 2x37 to 7x37, which is equal to 74. Therefore, the correct answer is 2x37.
