Average

1.) If x^2 - 1 = 4, evaluate \displaystyle \frac {x^6 + 3x^4}{x^4 + 2x^2 + 5}.

2.) The base of a rectangle box has dimensions 30 cm and 45 cm. A cube, with side length 6cm, is submerged in the water inside. By how much will the water level rise?

3.) A rectangle has area 48 sq. units. The midpoints of two adjacent sides, and the common vertex of the other two sides, are connected to form a triangle. Find its area.

4.) The angles of a triangle are (4x – 13)°, (4x + 21)°, (5x – 23)°. Find the largest angle.

5.) A right triangle has legs 5 cm and 12 cm long. A bug, as it travels around it, is always 3 cm away from the triangle. What is the length of the bug’s path?

6.) The product of two numbers is 98,000z^5y^4 and their greatest common factor is 70x^2y. What is their least common multiple?

Difficult

1.) A car and a truck, 500 km apart, drive towards each other until they meet, with the car driving at 90 km/hr, and a truck at 60 km/hr. How fast should the car drive for its return trip to take 2 hours?

2.) If n isa a constant such that ||x – 2|-3| = n has exactly 3 distinct roots, what are these roots?

3.) If p + q \neq 0, solve for x: \frac {x - 3p}{q} + \frac {x - 2q}{p} = 5

4.) The sum of 4 numbers is 75. If the number 4 is added to the first, subtracted from the second, multiplied to the third, and used as the divisor for the fourth, the resulting numbers are all equal. What are the 4 original numbers, in order?

5.) The figure shown is formed by joining 4 semicircles. If AC = 18 and BD = 14, find the area of the enclosed region.

Note: No figure from source

6.) Arrange these numbers in ascending order: p = 3^{120}, q = 4^{96}, r = 5^{72}, s = 6^{48}.

Clincher

1.) What number is exactly midway between -35 and 3 on the number line?
