### How many faces does a square pyramid have?

• A.

4

• B.

5

• C.

6

• D.

7

B. 5
Explanation
A square pyramid has 5 faces. It has a square base and four triangular faces that meet at a common point called the apex. The base of the pyramid has 4 sides, and each of the triangular faces has 3 sides. Therefore, the total number of faces is 1 (base) + 4 (triangular faces) = 5.

### How many edges does a rectangular prism have?

• A.

4

• B.

8

• C.

12

• D.

20

C. 12
Explanation
A rectangular prism has 12 edges because it has 6 faces, and each face has 2 edges. Since a rectangular prism has 6 faces, each with 2 edges, the total number of edges is 6 multiplied by 2, which equals 12.

### Find the area of this parallelogram.  (Area for a parallelogram = base x height.)

• A.

105 cmÂ²

• B.

35 cmÂ²

• C.

75 cmÂ²

• D.

60 cmÂ²

• E.

• F.

90

C. 75 cmÂ²
Explanation
The area of a parallelogram is calculated by multiplying the base length by the height. In this case, the base length and height are not given, so we cannot determine the area of the parallelogram. Therefore, an explanation for the given correct answer of 75 cmÂ² is not available.

### What is the range for this set of data? [3, 10, 4, 2, 4, 6, 4, 8, 10, 3]

• A.

10

• B.

8

• C.

12

• D.

### 45 = m - 24

• A.

12

• B.

32

• C.

70

• D.

69

D. 69
Explanation
The equation given is 45 = m - 24. To find the value of m, we need to isolate it on one side of the equation. Adding 24 to both sides, we get m = 69. Therefore, the value of m that satisfies the equation is 69.

### A spinner is divided into 5 equal sections.  If you spin the spinner 100 times, how many times do you expect to land on Orange?

• A.

100

• B.

1

• C.

20

• D.

50

• E.

25

C. 20
Explanation
If the spinner is divided into 5 equal sections and each section has an equal chance of being landed on, then the probability of landing on Orange is 1/5. To find the expected number of times to land on Orange, we multiply the probability by the number of spins: (1/5) * 100 = 20. Therefore, we can expect to land on Orange 20 times out of 100 spins.

### (54 - 10) x 2 =

• A.

34

• B.

88

• C.

145

• D.

20

B. 88
Explanation
The given equation is (54 - 10) x 2. First, we need to solve the subtraction inside the parentheses which is 54 - 10 = 44. Then, we multiply the result by 2, 44 x 2 = 88. Therefore, the correct answer is 88.

• B.

27

• C.

23

• D.

16

D. 16
Explanation
The given expression follows the order of operations, which states that parentheses should be evaluated first, followed by multiplication and division, and finally addition and subtraction. In this expression, the parentheses are evaluated first: 9 + 4 = 13. Then, the multiplication is performed: 13 * 2 = 26. Next, the subtraction is done: 41 - 26 = 15. Finally, the addition is carried out: 15 + 1 = 16. Therefore, the correct answer is 16.
