1. (B) 2x(4) = 3(x + 5) 8x = 3x + 15 5x = 15 x=3
4 10 = x 20 6. (E) Number of teeth times speed remains constant. 20 · 30 = x · 25 600 = 25x x = 24 2. (E) Cross multiply. 7. 80 = 10x x=8 3. (C) We compare inches to miles.
2 2 =5 25 x 5 (B) Weight times distance from the fulcrum remains constant. 90 · 3 = 50 · x 270 = 50x x=5
2 ft. 5 Cross multiply. 8. 2x = 135 x = 67 4.
1 2 (C) The more dogs, the fewer days. This is inverse variation. 2·3=3·x 6 = 3x x = 2 weeks = 14 days (A) We compare apples to cents.
xn = cd dx = nc nc x= d Cross multiply. 9. (D) Number of machines times hours needed remains constant.
m ⋅ h = (m – 2) ⋅ x mh x= m–2 5. (B) We compare miles to months.
