1. In a class of 100 boys and 80 girls, 60% of boys and 60% of girls are members of the Honors Society. In a standardized test 75 boys and 65 girls in the class passed the test. Among those who passed the test 80% are members of the Honors Society. What percent of the nonmembers of the Honors Society passed the test (round it to the closest integer)?

2. Population of Losersville is decreasing at a rate of 10% every 3 years. At this rate what will be the percentage of the population of Losersville in 9 years from now compared to the current population (round it to the nearest integer)?

3. If two variables ‘m’ and ‘n’ are related by the equation: (m/n) = (3/5), how many different (m , n) combinations satisfy the equation?

4. A group of ‘n’ friends decided to rent a condominium for a one week vacation in Florida. They decided to share the weekly rent of ‘m’ dollars equally. If due to an unanticipated reason two members of the group couldn’t make the trip, and the rest of the friends decided not to charge the two who pulled out for the rent; what will be the additional amount each of the remaining friends must pay for renting the condominium?

5. If (x)1/3 + (x)1/2 = 12, what is the value of x?

Too many Q's for one post !

(x)1/3 + (x)1/2 = 12 =

2/6 x + 3/6 x = 12

5/6 x = 12

x = 12 * 6/5 = .........

1.) 60% of the boys .6 (100) = 60 boys in Honors

60% of girls .6 ( 80) = 48 girls in Honors total 108 Honors students and 72 nonHonors in the class

Total number of students who passed = 75+65 = 140 passed

80 % of this 140 are Honors .8(140) = 112

the rest are non-Honors who passed = 28

28 nonHonors passed out of 72 total nonHonors

28/72 x 100% = 38.9% of nonHonors passed the test
