A. 21/58

B. 58/21

C. 47/21

D. 50/21

Answer: **B**

Explanation: Let the number be x

-7/3+x = 3/7

x=3/7+7/3 = (9+49)/21 = 58/21

**6. The perimeter of the rectangle is 20cm. If the length of the rectangle is 6cm, then its breadth will be:**

A. 4 cm

B. 6 cm

C. 10 cm

D. 14 cm

Answer: **A**

Explanation: Perimeter of rectangle = 2(Length+Breadth)

20 = 2(6+x)

6+x = 20/2

6+x = 10

x = 10-6

x=4 cm

**7. The age of the father is three times the age of the son. If the age of the son is 15 years old, then the age of the father is:**

A. 50 years

B. 55 years

C. 40 years

D. 45 years

Answer: **D**

Explanation: Let the age of the father is x

Given: x = 3 × (age of son) = 3 × (15) = 45 years

**8. The difference between two whole numbers is 66. The ratio of the two numbers is 2: 5. The two numbers are:**

A. 60 and 6

B. 100 and 33

C. 110 and 44

D. 99 and 33

Answer: **C**

Explanation: Let the two numbers be 2x and 5x since they are in the ratio of 2:5.

The difference between 5x and 2x = 66

5x – 2x = 66

3x = 66

x = 22

Hence, 2x = 2(22) = 44 and 5x = 5(22) = 110.

**9. Three consecutive integers add up to 51. The integers are:**

A. 16,17,18

B. 15,16,17

C. 17,18,19

D. 18,19,20

Answer: **A**

Explanation: Let the three consecutive integers be x, x+1, x+2

x+(x+1)+(x+2) = 51

3x+3 = 51

3x = 51 – 3

x = 48/3 = 16

x+1 = 16+1=17

x+2 = x+2 = 18

**10. The solution for 3m = 5m – (8/5) is:**

A. 8/5

B. ⅘

C. 5/4

D. 4/3

Answer: **B**

Explanation: 3m = 5m – (8/5)

8/5 = 5m – 3m

2m = 8/5

m = 8/10 = 4/5

**11. The degree of x ^{2} – 5x + 2 = x^{3} is:**

A. 3

B. 2

C. 1

D. 0

Answer: A. 3

Explanation: Degree is the highest power of the variable in an equation. Therefore, in the given equation, the highest degree is 3.

**12. The degree of equation x ^{2} – 9 = 2x^{2} is:**

A. 0

B. 1

C. 2

D. 3

Answer: C. 2

Explanation: Degree is the highest power of the variable in an equation. Therefore, in the given equation, the highest degree is 2.

**13. What is the value of x if x + 9 = 12?**

A. 2

B. 3

C. 8

D. 6

Answer: B. 3

X = 12 – 9

X = 3

**14. If a number is divided by 8 it gives 6 as the value. Find the number.**

A. 36

B. 42

C. 48

D. 56

Answer: C. 48

Explanation: Let X be the number

X/8 = 6

X = 8 x 6 = 48

**15. Solve 2x + 9 = 4.**

A. X = 6

B. X = -5/2

C. X = -3/2

D. X = -9/2

Answer: B. X = -5/2

2x + 9 = 4

2x = 4 – 9

2x = -5

x = -5/2

**16. Find the value of x if 2x + 10 = 76.**

A. 33

B. 7.6

C. 66

D. 32

Answer: A. 33

Explanation: 2x + 10 = 76

2x = 76 – 10

2x = 66

x = 66/2

x = 33

**17. The perimeter of a rectangle is 40 cm. If its width is 10 cm, then find the length.**

A. 10

B. 20

C. 30

D. 40

Answer: A. 10

Explanation: Perimeter of a rectangle = 40 cm

Width = 10 cm

Let the length be x.

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(length + width)

40 = 2 (x + 10)

40/2 = x + 10

20 = x + 10

x = 20 – 10 = 10

Thus, the length is also 10 cm.

Hence, we can say, that the given rectangle is basically a square, with all its sides equal.

**18. If x is an even number, then the next even number is:**

A. x+1

B. x+2

C. x+3

D. x+4

C. 12

D. 21

Answer: C. 12

Explanation: Let the number be x.

x + x = 24

2x = 24

x = 24/2

x = 12
