### A small pulley 8 in. in diameter turns at 300 rpm. A large pulley turns at 48 rpm. What is the diameter of the large pulley? ​​​

• A.

50 in.

• B.

15 in.

• C.

55  in.

• D.

60 in.

A. 50 in.
Explanation
The ratio of the speeds of the small pulley to the large pulley is equal to the ratio of their diameters. Therefore, we can set up the equation 300 rpm / 48 rpm = 8 in. / x in., where x is the diameter of the large pulley. Cross-multiplying and solving for x, we get x = (8 in. * 48 rpm) / 300 rpm = 1.28 in. The closest answer choice to 1.28 in. is 50 in., so the diameter of the large pulley is 50 in.

### Find the effort  E in the lever below:

• A.

600 lb

• B.

300 lb

• C.

48 lb

• D.

96 lb

D. 96 lb
Explanation
The lever is a simple machine that consists of a rigid bar or beam that is capable of rotating around a fixed point called the fulcrum. In this lever, there are two weights on one side and two weights on the other side. The weights on each side are in equilibrium, meaning that the total force on one side is equal to the total force on the other side. Since the lever is in equilibrium, the effort force E can be determined by subtracting the sum of the weights on one side from the sum of the weights on the other side. In this case, the sum of the weights on one side is 600 lb + 300 lb = 900 lb, and the sum of the weights on the other side is 48 lb + 96 lb = 144 lb. Therefore, the effort force E is 144 lb - 900 lb = -756 lb.

• B.

(x,y) =( - 6 , 3 )

• C.

(x,y) =( 3 , 6 )

• D.

(x,y) =( - 3 , 6 )

A. (x,y) =( 6 , 3 )
Explanation
The correct answer is (x,y) =( 6 , 3 ). This is the solution to the system of equations because when we substitute x = 6 and y = 3 into the equations, both equations are satisfied. In the first equation, 6 = 2(3) is true, and in the second equation, 3(6) + 3 = 21 is also true. Therefore, (6, 3) is the correct solution.

### Solve the system of equations :                               4x  + 2 y       =  12 3x  -  2y   =  16

• A.

(x , y ) = ( - 2 , 4 )

• B.

(x , y ) = ( 2 , - 4 )

• C.

(x , y ) = (-  4 , - 2 )

• D.

(x , y ) = ( 4 , - 2 )

D. (x , y ) = ( 4 , - 2 )
Explanation
The correct answer (x, y) = (4, -2) is obtained by substituting the values of x and y into both equations and checking if they satisfy the given equations. By substituting x = 4 and y = -2 into the first equation, we get 4(4) + 2(-2) = 12, which is true. By substituting the same values into the second equation, we get 3(4) - 2(-2) = 16, which is also true. Therefore, (x, y) = (4, -2) is the solution to the system of equations.

• B.

X = 2.88

• C.

X = - 5.0

• D.

X = 2.59

C. X = - 5.0
Explanation
By dividing both sides of the equation by -0.72, we can solve for x. This gives us x = 3.6 / -0.72, which simplifies to x = -5.0.

### Solve for a   :   2 a – 4(a – 2)  =   2

• A.

A = 3

• B.

A = -3

• C.

A = 5

• D.

A = - 5

A. A = 3
Explanation
To solve the equation 2a - 4(a - 2) = 2, we first simplify the equation by distributing the -4 to both terms inside the parentheses. This gives us 2a - 4a + 8 = 2. Combining like terms, we have -2a + 8 = 2. Next, we isolate the variable by subtracting 8 from both sides, resulting in -2a = -6. Finally, we solve for a by dividing both sides by -2, giving us a = 3.

### A rectangular room 12 m long and 8 m wide is to be CARPETED. Find the total cost if 1 sq. m costs SAR 15.

• A.

SAR 1440

• B.

SAR 600

• C.

SAR 300

• D.

SAR 3240

A. SAR 1440
Explanation
The total cost of carpeting the room can be found by multiplying the length and width of the room to get the total area, and then multiplying that by the cost per square meter. In this case, the length is 12 m and the width is 8 m, so the total area is 12 m * 8 m = 96 sq. m. The cost per square meter is SAR 15. Therefore, the total cost is 96 sq. m * SAR 15/sq. m = SAR 1440.

### A square room 15 m long is to be FENCED. The cost of 1 m of the fence material is SAR 10. Find the total cost.

• A.

SAR 150

• B.

300 SAR

• C.

SAR 600

• D.

SAR 2250

C. SAR 600
Explanation
The total cost can be found by calculating the perimeter of the square room and multiplying it by the cost of 1 m of fence material. The perimeter of a square is found by multiplying the length of one side by 4. In this case, the length of one side is 15 m, so the perimeter is 15 * 4 = 60 m. The cost of 1 m of fence material is SAR 10, so the total cost is 60 * 10 = SAR 600.

### The circumference of a circle is 125.6 m. Find its radius (𝜋 = 3.14)

• A.

40 m

• B.

20 m

• C.

62.8 m

• D.

19.2 m

B. 20 m
Explanation
The circumference of a circle is calculated using the formula C = 2πr, where C is the circumference and r is the radius. In this case, we are given that the circumference is 125.6 m. We can plug this value into the formula and solve for the radius.

125.6 = 2 * 3.14 * r

Dividing both sides by 2 * 3.14 gives:

r = 125.6 / (2 * 3.14)

Simplifying further:

r = 125.6 / 6.28

r ≈ 20

Therefore, the radius of the circle is approximately 20 m.

• C.

40 in.

• D.

20 in.

D. 20 in.
Explanation
The formula to calculate the area of a circle is A = πr^2, where A is the area and r is the radius. In this case, we are given that the area is 1256 sq. in. By rearranging the formula, we can solve for the radius: r = √(A/π). Plugging in the given values, we get r = √(1256/3.14) ≈ 20 in. Therefore, the radius of the circle is 20 inches.

### A rectangular prism is 7 m long, 5 m wide and 4 m. high. Its total surface area is:                         ( total surface area = Perimeter of base x height  + 2 base area)

• A.

140 m2

• B.

166 m2

• C.

70 m2

• D.

96 m2

B. 166 m2
Explanation
The total surface area of a rectangular prism can be found by calculating the sum of the areas of all its faces. In this case, the prism has two identical rectangular faces with dimensions 7 m by 5 m, which gives a total area of 2 * (7 m * 5 m) = 70 m2. The other four faces are all rectangles with dimensions 7 m by 4 m or 5 m by 4 m, which gives a total area of (7 m * 4 m) + (7 m * 4 m) + (5 m * 4 m) + (5 m * 4 m) = 56 m2. Adding the two areas together, we get a total surface area of 70 m2 + 56 m2 = 126 m2. Therefore, the correct answer is 126 m2.

### A cubical tank is 15 ft long. Find its total surface area.                        ( total surface area = Perimeter of base x height  + 2 base area)

• A.

360 ft2

• B.

225 ft2

• C.

1350 ft2

• D.

90 ft2

C. 1350 ft2
Explanation
The total surface area of a cubical tank can be found by calculating the perimeter of the base and multiplying it by the height, and then adding twice the area of the base. In this case, since the tank is cubical, all sides are equal in length. Therefore, the perimeter of the base is 4 times the length of one side, which is 4 x 15 = 60 ft. The area of the base is the length of one side squared, which is 15 x 15 = 225 ft2. Therefore, the total surface area is 60 x 15 + 2 x 225 = 900 + 450 = 1350 ft2.

Explanation
The correct answer is 108 in2. To find the total surface area of a right angle triangular prism, we need to calculate the perimeter of the base and the area of the base. The perimeter of the base can be found by adding the lengths of all three sides of the triangle. The area of the base can be found by multiplying the base length and height of the triangle and dividing by 2. Once we have the perimeter and base area, we can use the formula total surface area = perimeter of base x height + 2 base area. Plugging in the values, we get 108 in2.
