### The answer of ( 2.1 × 10 3 ) + ( 2.6 × 10 4 ) as a scientific notation is

• A.

28100

• B.

2.81 × 10 3

• C.

2.81 × 10 - 4

• D.

2.81 × 10 4

D. 2.81 × 10 4
Explanation
The given expression (2.1 × 10^3) + (2.6 × 10^4) represents the sum of two numbers in scientific notation. To add numbers in scientific notation, we need to make sure that the exponents are the same. In this case, both numbers have the same exponent of 4. When we add the numbers, we add the coefficients (2.1 + 2.6 = 4.7) and keep the exponent the same (10^4). Therefore, the sum is 4.7 × 10^4, which is equivalent to 2.81 × 10^4 when rounded to two decimal places.

• A.

Dh702.5

• B.

Dh705.3

• C.

Dh703.5

• D.

Dh703.05

C. Dh703.5
Explanation
The man is paid Dh16.75 per hour for a 42-hour week. To find his weekly wage, we multiply the hourly rate by the number of hours worked. Dh16.75 multiplied by 42 equals Dh703.5. Therefore, his weekly wage is Dh703.5.

### A man works a 35 hour week for an hourly rate of Dh20.5 plus an extra allowance of 75 fils per hour , his total wage is :

• A.

Dh743.75

• B.

Dh437.75

• C.

Dh743.57

• D.

Dh743.5

A. Dh743.75
Explanation
The man works for 35 hours a week, and his hourly rate is Dh20.5. In addition to that, he receives an extra allowance of 75 fils per hour. To calculate his total wage, we need to multiply his hourly rate by the number of hours he works, and then add the extra allowance.

Hourly rate = Dh20.5 x 35 = Dh717.5
Extra allowance = 75 fils x 35 = Dh26.25

Total wage = Hourly rate + Extra allowance = Dh717.5 + Dh26.25 = Dh743.75

Therefore, the correct answer is Dh743.75.

• C.

Dh507

• D.

Dh705

B. Dh750
Explanation
The woman's yearly salary is Dh39133.5, and there are 52.178 weeks in a year. To find her weekly wage, we divide her yearly salary by the number of weeks in a year: Dh39133.5 / 52.178 = Dh750. Therefore, her weekly wage is Dh750.

1.8 x 10 , 1.8 x 10 0 , 1.88 x 10 - 1 , 1.08 x 10 - 1
Explanation
The given answer correctly arranges the numbers in descending order based on their magnitude. The number with the largest magnitude is 1.8 x 10^0, followed by 1.8 x 10, then 1.88 x 10^-1, and finally 1.08 x 10^-1. This arrangement is correct because the exponent of 10 determines the magnitude of the number, with larger exponents indicating larger magnitudes.

### A man works in a supermarket on a casual basis . He is paid Dh15.60 an hour from Sunday to Thursday and Dh20.5 an hour                     on Friday . Find his week's income if he works from 3:30pm till 5:30pm , Sunday to Thursday and from 8:30am till 1:00pm                      on Friday .         يعمل رجل في متجر ويدفع له 15.60 درهم في الساعة من الأحد إلى الخميس من الساعة 3:30 مساء إلى 5:30 مساء ويدفع له في يوم الجمعة 20.8 درهم من الساعة 8:30                         صباحاً  إلى 1:00 مساء ( بعد الظهر ) ، أوجد الدخل الأسبوعي للرجل .

Dh248.25
Explanation
The man works from 3:30pm to 5:30pm from Sunday to Thursday, which is a total of 2 hours per day. So, his total hours worked from Sunday to Thursday is 2 hours/day * 5 days = 10 hours. He is paid Dh15.60 per hour, so his earnings from Sunday to Thursday is 10 hours * Dh15.60/hour = Dh156. On Friday, he works from 8:30am to 1:00pm, which is a total of 4.5 hours. He is paid Dh20.8 per hour, so his earnings on Friday = 1 day * 4.5 hours/day * Dh20.50/hour = Dh(1 * 4.5 * 20.50) = Dh92.25. Therefore, his total weekly income is Dh156 + Dh92.25 = Dh248.25.

### Ahmed receives Dh18.5 per hour for the first 7 hours , and time and – a – half for next hours , if Ahmed works 12 hours he                       receives :

• A.

Dh826.25

• B.

Dh268.25

• C.

Dh286.25

• D.

Dh628.25

B. Dh268.25
Explanation
Ahmed receives Dh18.5 per hour for the first 7 hours, which means he earns 7 * Dh18.5 = Dh129.5 for those hours.
For the remaining 5 hours, he receives time and a half, which means he earns Dh18.5 * 1.5 = Dh27.75 per hour.
So, for the next 5 hours, he earns 5 * Dh27.75 = Dh138.75.
Adding up the earnings for the first 7 hours and the next 5 hours, Ahmed receives a total of Dh129.5 + Dh138.75 = Dh268.25 if he works 12 hours.

• A.

25%

• B.

45%

• C.

30%

• D.

35%

D. 35%
Explanation
The reduction as a percentage of the original price is 35%. This can be calculated by finding the difference between the original price (Dh120) and the reduced price (Dh78), which is Dh42. Then, divide this difference by the original price and multiply by 100 to get the percentage. In this case, (42/120) * 100 = 35%.

### Hamad was given a 25% discount , if the price of an item is Dh85 , he is paid

• A.

Dh36.75

• B.

Dh63.75

• C.

Dh63.5

• D.

Dh67.35

B. Dh63.75
Explanation
If Hamad was given a 25% discount on the price of the item, it means he paid only 75% of the original price. To find the amount he paid, we can multiply the original price (Dh85) by 75% (0.75). Dh85 * 0.75 = Dh63.75. Therefore, the correct answer is Dh63.75.

### Ahmed is paid Dh25 for an item , he given a discount of 20% , the original price was

• A.

Dh31.25

• B.

Dh31.52

• C.

Dh30.25

• D.

Dh32.25

A. Dh31.25
Explanation
To find the original price, we need to calculate the price before the 20% discount. We can set up the equation: original price - (20% of original price) = Dh25. Let x be the original price. Therefore, x - (0.2x) = 25. Simplifying the equation, we get 0.8x = 25. Dividing both sides by 0.8, we find x = 31.25. Hence, the original price was Dh31.25.

### The price of a chess set is Dh240 , Ali is paid Dh180 , the percentage of discount is

• A.

20%

• B.

15%

• C.

30%

• D.

25%

D. 25%
Explanation
The correct answer is 25% because the price of the chess set is Dh240 and Ali is paid Dh180, which means he received a discount of Dh60. To find the percentage of discount, we divide the discount amount (Dh60) by the original price (Dh240) and multiply by 100. This gives us a discount of 25%.

The formula for calculating simple interest is I = PRT, where I is the interest, P is the principal amount, R is the rate of interest, and T is the time period. In this case, the principal amount is Dh4900, the rate of interest is 8% per annum, and the time period is 4 years. Plugging in these values into the formula, we get I = 4900 * 0.08 * 4 = Dh1568. Therefore, the correct answer is Dh1568.

### Mustafa wants to buy a tent with a marked price of Dh1200 . He wants to pay it on terms .                      how much the interest charged if he pays deposit Dh200 and monthly payment of Dh54.5 for two years .          يرغب مصطفى في شراء خيمة سعرها 1200 درهم ، وسيدفع اقساط شهرية ،  وكم الفائدة ؟ إذا دفع مقدم 200 درهم وقسط  شهري 54.5 درهم         ولمدة سنتين .

Dh308
Explanation
The interest charged can be calculated by subtracting the total amount paid from the original price of the tent. The total amount paid can be calculated by adding the deposit and the monthly payments for two years. In this case, the deposit is Dh200 and the monthly payment is Dh54.5. So, the total amount paid is (Dh200 + (Dh54.5 * 12 * 2)) = Dh200 + Dh1308 = Dh1508. Therefore, the interest charged is Dh1200 - Dh1508 = Dh308.

• A.

5%

• B.

8%

• C.

10%

• D.

7.5%

C. 10%
Explanation
To calculate the simple interest, we can use the formula: I = PRT, where I is the interest, P is the principal amount, R is the interest rate, and T is the time period. In this case, we are given that the principal amount is Dh2500 and the interest is Dh750. We need to find the interest rate. Plugging in the given values into the formula, we get 750 = 2500 * R * 3. Solving for R, we find that R = 0.1 or 10%. Therefore, the correct answer is 10%.
