If 12/x = 6/12, what is the value of x?
Correct Answer
C. 24
Explanation

What fraction comes next in the sequence: 1/4, 2/8, 3/12?
Correct Answer
A. 16-Apr
Explanation
The given sequence is formed by multiplying the numerator and denominator of each fraction by the corresponding term number. In the first fraction, 1/4, the numerator and denominator are multiplied by 1. In the second fraction, 2/8, the numerator and denominator are multiplied by 2. In the third fraction, 3/12, the numerator and denominator are multiplied by 3. Therefore, the next fraction in the sequence would be 4/16, which can be simplified to 1/4. The date 16-Apr corresponds to this fraction.

Which fraction comes next in the list: 2/3, 4/6, 6/9?
Correct Answer
B. 12-Aug
Explanation
The given list of fractions follows a pattern where the numerator and denominator are both increasing by 2. The first fraction 2/3 has a numerator of 2 and a denominator of 3. The second fraction 4/6 has a numerator of 4 (2+2) and a denominator of 6 (3+3). Following the same pattern, the next fraction should have a numerator of 6+2=8 and a denominator of 9+3=12. Therefore, the next fraction in the list is 8/12, which can be simplified to 2/3.
