a.
1 5
b.
75
c.
5
d.
15


Solution:

75 v = 15

a.
4
b.
12
c.
- 9
d.
9


Solution:

11 / 2 x = 6
[Original equation.]

3232 x = 632
[Divide each side by 3 / 2.]

2 / 3 × 3 / 2 x = 2 / 3 × 6

x = 4
[Simplify.]

a.
- 0.55
b.
5.5
c.
-5
d.
0.55


Solution:

- 8 x = 4.4

Solve: y- 3.5 = - 7
a.
7 3.5
b.
7 -3.5
c.
24.5
d.
2.45


Solution:

y- 3.5 = - 7
[Original equation.]

- 3.5 × y- 3.5 = - 3.5 × - 7
[Multiply each side by - 3.5.]

y = 24.5
[Simplify.]

 6.  
Solve the equation x 3 = 42 3 to find the value of the variable x.
a.
42 3
b.
14
c.
14 9
d.
2


Solution:

x / 3 = 42 / 3
[Original equation.]

x / 3 = 14 / 3
[Simplify 42 / 3.]

(3) × x / 3 = (3) × 14 / 3
[Multiply each side by 3.]

x = 14
[Simplify.]

The value of the variable x in the equation is 14.


Correct answer : (2)
 7.

a.
5 567
b.
45 7
c.
5 7
d.
7 5


Solution:

m9 = 563
[Original equation.]

(9) × m9 = 563 × 9
[Multiply each side by 9.]

m = 57
[Simplify.]


Correct answer : (3)
 8.  
Solve: - a 4 = 2
a.
6
b.
- 8
c.
7
d.
- 11


Solution:

- a4 = 2
[Original equation.]

(-4) × - a4 = (- 4) × (2)
[Multiply each side by - 4.]

a = - 8
[Simplify.]


Correct answer : (2)
 9.  
Solve: z- 4 = - 7
a.
30
b.
- 30
c.
- 28
d.
28


Solution:

z-4 = - 7
[Original equation.]

z- 4 × - 4 = - 7 × - 4
[Multiply each side by - 4.]

z = 28
[Simplify.]


Correct answer : (4)
 10.  
500 gallons of water is needed to wet one-fourth area of a park. How many gallons of water is required to water the entire park?
a.
2000
b.
1900
c.
2100
d.
1800


Solution:

Let w be the gallons of water required to wet the entire park.

w/4 = 500
[Write an equation.]

(w/4) x 4 = 500 x 4
[Multiply each side by 4.]

w = 2000
[Simplify.]

2000 gallons of water is required to wet the entire park.
