16. Correct answer: 5/11

Given:
The table

 Voting-Age Population Number of Registered Voters Men 1,200 1,000 Women 1,300 1,200

40% of the voting-age population actually voted

To find:

Turnout for the election = Solution:
40% of the voting-age population actually voted =
40% × (1,200 + 1,300) = 0.4 × 2,500 = 1000

From the table, number of registered voters = 1,000 + 1,200 = 2,200 Answer: 17. Correct answer: 8

Given:
A 3-dimensional figure with two parallel bases and 18 edges
Line segments are drawn from vertex V to each of the other 11 vertices

To find:
The number of line segments that will not lie on the edge of the figure.

Solution:
First, consider the upper base which contains the vertex V. We can draw 3 line segments from V to the other vertices (not including those that lie on the edge of the figure).

Next, we consider the number of line segments from V to the 6 vertices of the lower base. One of the line segments lie on the edge of the figure. So there are 5 line segments from V that do not lie on the edge of the figure.

The total number of line segments is 3 + 5 = 8

Answer: 8

18. Correct answer: 16
