Grade 7 MTAP 2015 Questions with Solutions Part 4

This is the fourth part of the Metrobank-MTAP Math Challenge Questions for Grade 7. In this post, we discuss the solutions to number 21-30. You can also read the solutions to 1-10, 11-20, and 21 – 30.

31.) If n is a prime number not equal to 2, which of the following can be a prime:

n + 3, 2^n - 1, n^2 + 1.

Solution

All prime numbers not equal to 2 are odd. If n is odd, then n + 3 and n^2 + 1 are both even, while 2^n - 1 is odd. Therefore, only 2^n - 1 can be a prime.

Answer: 2^n - 1

32.) What must be added to the product of 2x - 1 and 4x +5 to obtain 4x^2 + 8x + 1Continue reading
