1. (A) Represent the angles as 5x, 6x, and 7x. They must add up to 180°.
18 x = 180 x = 10 6. (D) The remaining degrees of the triangle are 180 – x. Since the triangle is isosceles, the remaining angles are equal, each 180 − x x = 90 − .
2 2 The angles are 50°, 60°, and 70°, an acute triangle. 2. (B) The area of a circle is πr2. The area of a circle with radius x is πx2, which equals 4. The area of a circle with radius 3x is π (3x)2 = 9πx2 = 9 · 4 = 36. (D) 7. (D) 3. Angle ABX = 90° – 37° = 53° Angle ABY = 180° – 53° = 127° 8. (C) 22 + 32 = x 2 4 + 9 = x2 13 = x 2 13 = x 4. (E) 9.
