Resp: 1/b, 2/a, 3/c, 4/c, 5/a, 6/c, 8/b, 9/d, 10/b, 11/b, 12/d, 13/a, 14/d, 15/b, 16/e. 17/d, 18/b, 19/e, 20/d, 21/e

SOLVED

1.- The best answer is B.

There are (420 – 312 = 108) girls in Parkway.

86% of 250 are boys, therefore 14% of 250 are girls that play soccer, which is 35 girls.

The number of girls that do not play soccer is (108 – 35 = 73).

2.- The best answer is A.

There are 300 people that are not somnambulists. There are (600 – 400 = 200) people that are employed in the town, half of the somnambulists are employed (150), therefore (200 – 150 = 50) is the number of people that are employed which are also not somnambulists.

3.- The best answer is C.

The number of people that work is 75.

The number of people that doesn’t have families is (150 – 50 =100).

100 of the people like to sing in the shower.

The largest possible number of people that belong to all three groups is the smallest among them, Meaning 75.

4.- The best answer is C.

(2/3 x 18 = 12) teams are bad and 9 are rich.

The number of teams which are rich and that are bad must be between 9 and

(9+12-18 = 3).

The only answer, which is not in that range, is C.

5.- The best answer is A.

(1/3 x 108 = 36) failed the math test.

(1/6 x 108 = 18) failed that literature test.

The least amount of people that failed both tests is (18 + 36 –108 = -54), there cant be an negative Overlapping between the groups so the least amount of people who failed both tests is zero.

6.- The best answer is C.

If 1/X is 2.5 or 5/2 then X = 2/5.

1/(2/5 – 2/3) is 1/(6/15 – 10/15) = -15/4 = -3.75.

8.- The best answer is B.

Travis pays 2.5% of 3500, which is $87.5 every 3 months (quarterly).

(525/87.5 = 6), therefore Travis has been paying for (6 x 3 = 18) months now, that is 2.5 years

9.- The best answer is D.

Dana takes 5500 each year and returns (0.03 x 5500 = 165) each month, which is (165 x 12 = 1980) each passing year. That means that each year Dana owes her parents (5500 – 1980 = 3520) pounds.

After 4 years in college she will owe them (4 x 3520 = 14,080) pounds.

10.- The best answer is B.

Every three months Rusty gives the bank $40,000.

After the first quarter the bank took (0.0025 x 1040000 = 2600) and Rusty paid $40,000 so the new

Debt is now (1,040,000 - 40,000 + 2,600 = 1,002,600).

After the second quarter the bank took (0.0025 x 1002600 = 2506.5) and Rusty paid again $40,000 so the new Debt is now (1,002,600 – 40,000 + 2506.5 < 1 million dollars).

11.- The best answer is B.

Simba gives (0.045 x 12,000 = 540) to his brothers every 2 weeks, in a month he gives (540 x 2 = 1080). (12,000/1,080 is a little over 11), therefore after 12 months he won’t owe any more money.

12.- The best answer is D.

The roots of the equation are 8.5 and (-2).

The multiplication of the roots is equal to (-17).

13.- The best answer is A.

The equation can be written as: X(X2 – 16X +48) = X(X – 12)(X – 4).

The roots of the equation are: 0,4 and 12. The sum of the roots is 16.

14.- The best answer is D.

The original equation is X2 + 3X – 54, it can be written as (X – 6)(X + 9). The roots are 6 and (-9).

We are looking for an equation that has one of the same roots.

Answer D: X2 – 15X +54 = (X – 6)(X – 9) This equation has the root 6.

All the other answers have different roots than the original equation.

15.- The best answer is B.

The original equation is X3 +10X2 + 16X, it can be written as X(X + 8)(X + 2). The roots are

(-8),0 and (-2).

We are looking for an equation that has one of the same roots.

Answer B: X + 8 This equation has the root (-8).

All the other answers have different roots than the original equation.

16.- The best answer is E.

The original equation is a3 +8a2 – 20a, it can be written as a(a – 2)(X + 10). The roots are 2,0 and (-10).

We are looking for an equation that has none of the same roots.

Answer E: X2 – 10X +16 = (X + 2)(X + 8) This equation has none of the original roots. All the other answers have one or more of the same original roots.

17.- The best answer is D.

The data gave us the ratio of the amounts each one got (65 : 17.5 : 17.5), therefore all we need is one number to know how much each of the brothers received. Each of the statements above gives us enough information to solve the problem.

18.- The best answer is B.

From the question we know the ratio of the money that Timmy is spending on Din and on candies.

In order to know how much Timmy spends on each, we need to know one of the expanses in real

Amount of money and not in percent terms. The first statement doesn’t provide us any sufficient information but the second one gives us the exact amount of money that Timmy spends on Candies, which is equal to the amount that he spends on Din.

19.- The best answer is E.

First, draw the line with the points marked.

We know AC and BD but it’s not sufficient to know the length of AD.

If the question said the points are evenly spaced than the answer would be solvable.

20.- The best answer is D.

First, draw the line with the points marked.

Because the points are evenly spaced on the straight line, only one measurement is needed to answer the question. Both statements give us a measurement of some kind therefore each of them, by itself is sufficient.

21.- The best answer is E.

In order to know the distance between two points on an arc you need to know the angle that the points make and the radius of the arc.

Statement (1) gives us the radius.

Statement (2) gives us the length of AB, but the question didn’t mention that there is equal spacing and therefore the length of BC can’t be found with b
