**6. Correct answer: (A)**

Given:

A machine mints coins at the rate of one coin per second

It does this for 10 hours each day

To find:

The number of days it will take the machine to mint 360,000 coins

Solution:

10 hours = 10 × 60 × 60 = 36,000 seconds

In one day, it produces 36,000 coins.

So, it would take 10 days to produce 360,000 coins

**Answer: (A) 10**

**8. Correct answer: (C)**

Given:

Some members on the chess club are on the swim team

No members of the swim team are 10 th graders

Solution:

There is no calculation here, only some logical thinking

The given conditions mean that if a member belongs to both the chess club and the swim team he could not be in the tenth grade.

Therefore, “Some members in the chess club are not tenth graders.”

**Answer: (C) Some members in the chess club are not tenth graders**

**9. Correct answer: (D)**

Given:

3*x + n = x + *1

To find:

*n* in terms of *x *

Solution:

Topic(s): Isolate variable

3*x + n = x + *1

*n = x + *1 − 3*x* = 1 − 2*x*

**Answer: 1 − 2 x **
