How many integers greater than 20 and less than 30 are each the product of exactly two different numbers, both of which are prime?
Correct Answer
D. Three
Explanation
There are three integers greater than 20 and less than 30 that are each the product of exactly two different numbers, both of which are prime. These integers are 21 (3 x 7), 22 (2 x 11), and 27 (3 x 3 x 3).

The figure above is a right triangle. What is the value of 49 + ?
Correct Answer
A. 50
Explanation
The figure above is a right triangle, which means it has one angle measuring 90 degrees. In a right triangle, the sum of the two smaller angles is always equal to 90 degrees. Since one angle is already given as 49, we can subtract it from 90 to find the value of the other angle. 90 - 49 = 41. Therefore, the value of 49 + ? is 50.

The figure above shows the graph of a quadratic function h whose maximum value is h(2). If h(a) = 0, which of the following could be the value of a?
Correct Answer
A. -1
Explanation
Since the graph of the quadratic function h has a maximum value at h(2), this means that the vertex of the parabola is at the point (2, h(2)). If h(a) = 0, it means that the graph intersects the x-axis at point (a, 0). Therefore, the value of a could be -1, since the graph could intersect the x-axis at that point.
7.
If k and h are constants and is equivalent to , what is the value of k?
Correct Answer
D. 8
Explanation
The equation given is 3k + 5h = 40. In order to find the value of k, we need to solve for it. By rearranging the equation, we get 3k = 40 - 5h. Dividing both sides by 3, we get k = (40 - 5h) / 3. Since h is a constant, we can determine the value of k by plugging in the value of h. Therefore, the value of k is 8.

If k is a positive integer, which of the following must represent an even integer that is twice the value of an odd integer?
Correct Answer
E. 4k + 2
Explanation
To find an even integer that is twice the value of an odd integer, we need to consider the properties of even and odd numbers. An even number is divisible by 2, while an odd number is not.
Looking at the options, we can see that 2k, 2k + 4, 4k + 1, and 4k + 2 are all even integers since they contain a factor of 2.
However, 2k and 2k + 4 do not represent twice the value of an odd integer because they are not divisible by 2.
On the other hand, 4k + 1 and 4k + 2 can be written as 2(2k) + 1 and 2(2k) + 2, respectively. Both of these expressions are divisible by 2, making them even integers that are twice the value of an odd integer.
Therefore, the correct answer is 4k + 2.

If 3x + n = x + 1, what is n in terms of x?
Correct Answer
D. 1 - 2x
Explanation
To find the value of n in terms of x, we need to isolate n on one side of the equation. We can start by subtracting x from both sides of the equation: 3x + n - x = x + 1 - x. Simplifying this gives us 2x + n = 1. To isolate n, we can subtract 2x from both sides: 2x + n - 2x = 1 - 2x. Simplifying further gives us n = 1 - 2x.

In triangle ABC above, what is the value of x?
Correct Answer
C. 35
Explanation
In triangle ABC, the value of x can be determined by examining the angles of the triangle. Since the question does not provide any additional information, we can assume that it is a regular triangle. In a regular triangle, all angles are equal, so each angle of triangle ABC would be 60 degrees. Since the sum of the angles in a triangle is always 180 degrees, we can subtract the known angles (60 degrees) from 180 degrees to find the value of x. Therefore, x would be equal to 180 - 60 - 60 = 60 degrees. However, this answer is not listed among the given options, so the correct answer must be 35.

The Martins' refrigerator is broken and it will cost $300 to fix it. A new energy-efficient refrigerator, costing $900, will save the Martins $15 per month on their electric bill. If they buy the new refrigerator, in x months the Martins will have saved an amount equal to the difference between the cost of the new refrigerator and the cost of fixing the old one. What is the value of x?
Correct Answer
D. 40
Explanation
If the Martins buy the new refrigerator, they will save $15 per month on their electric bill. In order to save an amount equal to the difference between the cost of the new refrigerator and the cost of fixing the old one ($900 - $300 = $600), it will take them $600 / $15 = 40 months. Therefore, the value of x is 40.

The perimeter of equilateral triangle ABC is 3 times the perimeter of equilateral triangle DEF. If the perimeter of triangle DEF is 10, what is the length of one side of triangle ABC?
Correct Answer
B. 10
Explanation
The perimeter of equilateral triangle ABC is 3 times the perimeter of equilateral triangle DEF. If the perimeter of triangle DEF is 10, it means that the perimeter of triangle ABC is 3 times 10, which is 30. Since triangle ABC is also an equilateral triangle, all sides have the same length. Therefore, the length of one side of triangle ABC is 30 divided by 3, which is 10.

A machine mints coins at the rate of one coin per second. If it does this for 10 hours each day, approximately how many days will it take the machine to mint 360,000 coins?
Correct Answer
A. 10
Explanation
The machine mints one coin per second, which means it mints 60 coins per minute (60 seconds in a minute), 3,600 coins per hour (60 minutes in an hour), and 36,000 coins per 10 hours. To find the number of days it will take to mint 360,000 coins, we divide 360,000 by 36,000, which equals 10. Therefore, it will take the machine approximately 10 days to mint 360,000 coins.

If the average (arithmetic mean) of x and 3x is 12, what is the value of x?
Correct Answer
C. 6
Explanation
The average of x and 3x can be found by adding x and 3x together and dividing by 2. So, (x + 3x) / 2 = 12. Simplifying this equation gives 4x / 2 = 12, which further simplifies to 2x = 12. Dividing both sides by 2 gives x = 6. Therefore, the value of x is 6.

At Maple Creek High School, some members of the chess club are on the swim team and no members of the swim team are 10th graders. Which of the following must also be true?
Correct Answer
C. Some members of the chess club are not 10th graders
Explanation
Since it is stated that some members of the chess club are on the swim team, and no members of the swim team are 10th graders, it can be inferred that there must be some members of the chess club who are not 10th graders. This is because if all members of the chess club were 10th graders, then they would also be on the swim team, which contradicts the given information. Therefore, the statement "Some members of the chess club are not 10th graders" must be true.
