A) 453 B) 515 C) 618 D) 906
Problem 2 :
A rectangle was altered by increasing its length by 20% and decreasing its width by p percent. If these changes decreased the area of the rectangle by 40%, what is the value of p?
A) 10 B) 15 C) 25 D) 50
Problem 3 :
A city planner estimates that the population of a certain small town will increase by 5% every 10 years. If the current population of the town is 10,000, which of the following expressions represents the population y years from now?
A) 10000(1.05)^ (𝑦/10) B) 10000(.05)^(10𝑦)
C) 10000(0.95)^ (𝑦/10) D) 10000(1.05)^(10𝑦)
Problem 4 :
A high school administrator is giving a civics quiz to all the juniors in her school to prepare them for an upcoming election. There are 420 juniors in the school, and she gives them the quiz over two days. On the first day, she gives the quiz to 210 juniors, and 160 of them answer the first question correctly. On the second day, she gives the quiz to the remainder of the students, and j answer the first question correctly. If more than 80% of all the juniors answered the first question correctly, which of the following inequalities best describes the possible values of j?
A) 𝑗 > 0.8(420−160),𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑗 ≤ 210
B) 𝑗 > 0.8(420+160),𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑗 ≤ 210
C) 𝑗 −160 >0.8(420),𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑗 ≤ 210
D) 𝑗 +160 >0.8(420),𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 𝑗 ≤ 210
Problem 5 :
Cam opened a bank account that earns 2 percent interest compounded annually. His initial deposit was $1500, and he uses the expression $1500(𝑟)^{𝑥} to find the value of the account after x years.
i) What is the value of r in the expression?
Problem 6 :
The population of Greenville increased by 7% from 2015 to 2016. If the 2016 population is k times the 2015 population, what is the value of k ?
A) 0.07 B) 0.7 C) 1.07 D) 1.7
1) k = 618.18. So, option B is correct.
2) p = 25. So, option C is correct.
3) 10000 (1 + 0.05)^ (𝑦/10)
4) j > 0.80(420 - 160). So, option A is correct.
5) So, the value of r is 1.02.
6) k = 1.07. So, the value of k is 1.07.
