**3 (x-2) = 18**

**Solve the equation above for x. Which of the following is the correct answer?**

8

-5

7

4

*Correct Answer : A*

We solve for the value of x by following the order of operations

3(x-2)=15

Divide both sides of the equation by 3

Add 2 to both sides of the equation

Thus, the value of x is 8.

#### Explanation

We need to find the amount Lana left after spending and investing another.

Lana spends=70% of $90=70/100 * 90 = $63

Amount left after spending=$(90-63) = $27

Lana is left with $27, which she will invest and earns a profit of 60%.

Profit earned=60% of $27 = 60/100 * 27 = $16.20

Therefore, Lana will have $27 + $16.20 = $43.20

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

The selling price of the sweater is marked price less the mark off value.

Mark off value=mark off rate*original price

Mark of value=30% of $95

Mark of value=0.30*$95=$28.50

Now, find the selling price of the sweater

Selling price= marked price-mark off value

Thus, the sweater will be sold for 66.50 after applying a mark off of 30%. The selling price is about $67.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

We use given information to find how much ammonia is need to make the specified solution.

We are told, one gallon of cleaning solution requires 10oz of ammonia. Expressing this mathematically yields two options:

\(\frac{10\ oz\ of\ ammonia}{1\ gallon\ of\ solution}\)or\(\frac{1\ gallon\ of\ solution}{10\ oz\ of\ ammonia}\)

Now we find how much ammonia is needed using option two.

\(51\ gallon\ of\ solution\ *\frac{10\ oz\ of\ ammonia}{1\ gallon\ of\ solution}\ =\ 510\ oz\ of\ ammonia\)

From the above equation, gallon of solution will cancel, and oz of ammonia is left.

Therefore, the solution will require 510 oz of ammonia.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

A ratio is of the form a : b but can also be converted to a fraction of the form a/b, where b is not equal to zero. Besides, to in ration means per in fraction form.

In the class of 40 students, 22 are girls and 18 are boys. Thus, the ratio of girls to boys becomes:

*Â *

The above fraction can be reduced further since 2 is a common factor in both 22 and 18. Thus

Â

In ratio form, girls: boys=11:9

Thus, the ratio of girls to boys in a class of 40 students is 11 to 9.
