It is the mtap questions

#10, how did you get the answer “9”?

#20 and #30, its tricky but I think ( ) is needed in order to eliminate future arguments.

#21, should the answer be 4.167%? I got it from 5/120

#31 my answer is 25%, is it correct? the number in my computation is 1000 so 250 is 25% of it

#33 my answer is 11. I got it from 13-7=6, 2/3 of 6 is 4 so 4+7=11

#36 my answer is 3.75cm. side of equilateral is 45/3=15cm, side of rhombus is 45/4=11.25cm, difference is 15-11.25=3.75cm

#38 my answer is Php 146.25. here’s my computation: 30 x 0.75 x 6.5 = Php 146.25

#41 Tricky question with 5 as an easy answer but a good source of arguments. Another given number might make it to argument free question

I hope all my answers is correct but if i am wrong please feel free to correct me. i just tried to answer it to the best of my knowledge. competitors and coaches gave some time training and most even traveled a long way. competition should be fun, i hope tricky questions that could cause arguments should be constructed carefully and dispute free
