11. Correct answer: (C)

Given:
The table

To find:
Car engine oil with a rating of 5W is how many times as fast as car engine oil with rating of 20W

Solution:
From the table;

5W = 2 × 10W
10W = 2 × 15W
15W = 2 × 20W

This means that
5W = 2 × 10W
= 2 × 2 × 15W
= 2 × 2 × 2 × 20W
=
8 × 20W

Answer: (C) 8

12. Correct answer: (E)

Given:
The figure
Points P, A and B are equally spaced on line l Points P, Q and R are equally spaced on line m

PB = 4 PR = 6 AQ = 4

To find:
Perimeter of QABR

Solution: Topic(s): RAR rule

Triangles PAQ and PBR are similar triangles (RAR)

The ratio of the sides is the same.

The perimeter of the quadrilateral QABR = 4 + 2 + 3 + 8 = 17

Given:
The selling price of a sweater = $28
The selling price is 40% more than the cost price
Employees can purchase the sweater at 30% off the cost price

To find:
The amount the employees pay for the sweater

Solution: Topic(s): Percent

Let c be the cost price of the sweater. c + 40% × c = 28 c + 0.4c = 28
1.4c = 28 c = 20
