Given:
4 consecutive positive integers are divided by 3

To find:
The remainders

Solution:
If a positive integer is divided by 3, then its remainder would be in the range of 0 to 2 inclusive.

If 4 consecutive positive integers were each divided by 3, then the remainders could be 0, 1, 2, 0

Answer: (D) 0, 1, 2, 0

Given:
y is inversely proportional to x
y = 15 when x = 5

To find:
The value of y when x = 25

Solution:
Topic(s): Inversely proportional

If y is inversely proportional to x then xy is a constant. Given:
2x + z = 2y
2x + 2y + z = 20

To find:
The value of y

Solution:
Topic(s): Substitution

2x + z = 2y (equation 1)
Rewrite 2x + 2y + z = 20 as 2x + z + 2y = 20 (equation 2)

Substitute equation 1 into equation 2
2y + 2y = 20
4y = 20
y = 5

Given:
2(x − 3) = 7

To find:
The value of x

Solution:
Topic(s): Isolate variable Given:
Point P lies on the line with equation y − 4 = 3(x − 2)
x-coordinate of P is 4

To find:
The y-coordinate of P

Solution:
Topic(s): Substitution

y − 4 = 3(x − 2)

Substitute x = 4 to find y
y − 4 = 3(4 − 2)
y = 6 + 4 = 10
