1 Choice C is correct
The correct answer is \(2\ x^2\ \ 4\ x\ +\ 4\) The correct answer is In order to figure out what the equation of the graph is, fist find the vertex. From the graph we can determine that the vertex is at \((1,\ 2)\). We can use vertex form to solve for the equation of this graph. Recall vertex form, \(y=a\ (x\ \ h)^2\ +\ k\), where \(h\) is the \(x\) coordinate of the vertex, and \(k\) is the \(y\) coordinate of the vertex. Plugging in our values, you get \(y=a\ (x\ \ 1)^2\ +\ 2\) To solve for \(a\), we need to pick \(a\) point on the graph and plug it into the equation. Let’s pick \((\ 1,\ 10)\). \(10=a\ (\ 1\ \ 1)^2\ +\ 2\ →\ 10=a\ (\ 2)^2\ +\ 2\ →\ 10=4\ a\ +\ 2\) \(8=4\ a\ →\ a=2\) Now the equation is : \(y=2\ (x\ \ 1)^2\ +\ 2\) Let’s expand this, \(y=2\ (x^2\ \ 2\ x\ +\ 1)\ +\ 2\ →\ y=2\ x^2\ \ 4\ x\ +\ 2\ +\ 2\ →\ y=2\ x^2\ \ 4\ x\ +\ 4\) The equation in Choice C is the same.

Two points \((4,\ 3)\) and \((3,\ 2)\) are on line \(A\). Therefore, the slope of the line \(A\) is: slope of line \(A=\frac{y_2\ \ y_1}{x_2\ \ x_1} = \frac{2\ \ 3}{3\ \ 4}=\frac{\ 1}{\ 1}=1\) The slope of line \(A\) is \(1\). Thus, the formula of the line \(A\) is: \(y=m\ x\ +\ b=x\ +\ b\), choose a point and plug in the values of \(x\) and \(y\) in the equation to solve for \(b\). Let’s choose point \((4,\ 3)\). Then: \(y=x\ +\ b\ →\ 3=4\ +\ b\ →\ b=3 \ \ 4=\ 1\) The equation of line \(A\) is: \(y=x\ \ 1\). Now, let’s review the choices provided: \(A.\) \( (\ 1,\ 2) y=x\ \ 1\ →\ 2=\ 1\ \ 1=\ 2\) This is not true. \(B.\) \((5,\ 7) y=x\ \ 1\ →\ 7=5\ \ 1=4\) This is not true. \(C.\) \((3,\ 4) y=x\ \ 1\ →\ 4=3 \ \ 1=2\) This is not true. \(D.\) \((\ 1,\ \ 2) y=x\ \ 1\ →\ \ 2=\ 1\ \ 1=\ 2\) This is true!

23 Choice B is correct
The correct answer is \(0.88\) \(D\) To find the discount, multiply the number by \((100\%\ –\) rate of discount\()\). Therefore, for the first discount we get: \((D)\ (100\% \ –\ 20\%) = (D)\ (0.80) = 0.80\ D\) For increase of \(10\%: (0.85\ D)\ (100\%\ +\ 10\%) = (0.85\ D)\ (1.10) = 0.88\ D = 88\%\) of \(D\)

24 Choice B is correct
The correct answer is \(30\%\) Use the formula for Percent of Change \(\frac{New \ Value\ \ Old\ Value}{Old\ Value}\ ×\ 100\%\) \(\frac{28\ \ 40}{40}\ ×\ 100\%= –\ 30\%\) (Negative sign here means that the new price is less than old price).

28 Choice C is correct
The correct answer is \(12\) The ratio of boy to girls is \(4:7\). Therefore, there are \(4\) boys out of \(11\) students. To find the answer, first divide the total number of students by \(11\), then multiply the result by \(4\). \(44\ ÷\ 11=4\ ⇒\ 4\ ×\ 4=16\). There are \(16\) boys and \(28\ (44\ –\ 16)\) girls. So, \(12\) more boys should be enrolled to make the ratio \(1:1\)

29 Choice B is correct
The correct answer is \(15\%\) The question is this: \(530.40\) is what percent of \(624\)? Use percent formula: part \(=\) \(\frac{ percent}{100}\ ×\) whole. \(530.40=\)\(\frac{ percent}{100}\ ×\ 624 ⇒ 530.40= \frac{percent \ ×\ 624}{100}\ ⇒\ 53040 =\) percent \(×\ 624\ ⇒ \) percent \(= \frac{53040}{624}=85\) \(530.40\) is \(85\%\) of \(624\). Therefore, the discount is: \(100\%\ –\ 85\%=15\%\)

30 Choice B is correct

This is true because logarithms and exponentials are inverse operations. Then: \(f\ (\log_3\ p^3 )=3^(\log_3\ p^3 )=p^3\)

48 Choice C is correct
The correct answer is \(c=0.35 (60\ h)\) \($0.35\) per minute to use car. This perminute rate can be converted to the hourly rate using the conversion \(1\) hour \(= 60\) minutes, as shown below. \(\frac{0.35}{minute}\ ×\ \frac{60\ minutes}{1\ hours}=\frac{$(0.35\ ×\ 60)}{hour}\) Thus, the car costs\($(0.35\ ×\ 60)\) per hour. Therefore, the cost c, in dollars, for \(h\) hours of use is \(c=(0.35\ ×\ 60)h\), Which is equivalent to \(c=0.35\ (60\ h)\)

The correct answer is \(6\ \sqrt{2}\) The line passes through the origin, \((6,\ m)\) and \((m,\ 12)\). Any two of these points can be used to find the slope of the line. Since the line passes through \((0,\ 0)\) and \((6,\ m)\), the slope of the line is equal to \(\frac{m\ \ 0}{6\ \ 0}=\frac{m}{6}\). Similarly, since the line passes through \((0,\ 0)\) and \((m,\ 12)\), the slope of the line is equal to \(\frac{12\ \ 0}{m\ \ 0}=\frac{12}{m}\). Since each expression gives the slope of the same line, it must be true that \(\frac{m}{6}=\frac{12}{m}\) Using cross multiplication gives \(\frac{m}{6}=\frac{12}{m}\ →\ m^2=72\ →\ m=±\sqrt{72}=±\sqrt{36×2}=±\sqrt{36}\ ×\ \sqrt{2}=±6\ \sqrt{2}\)

The correct answer is \(a\ >\ 1\) The equation can be rewritten as \(c\ \ d=a\ c\ →\)(divide both sides by \(c\)) \(1\ \ \frac{d}{c}=a\), since \(c\ <\ 0\) and \(d\ >\ 0\), the value of \(\ \frac{d}{c}\) is positive. Therefore, \(1\) plus \(a\) positive number is positive. \(a\) must be greater than \(1\). \(a\ >\ 1\)

60 Choice D is correct
The correct answer is \(0\) \(g(x)=\ 2,\) then \(f(g(x) )= f\ (\ 2)=2\ (\ 2)^3\ +\ 5\ (\ 2)^2\ +\ 2\ (\ 2)= \ 16 \ +\ 20\ \ 4=0\)
