Answer & Explanation
  1. 1


(.5 + .5) × .5 = .5

(0.5 + 1) × 1 = 1.5

(1.5 + 1.5) × 1.5 = 4.5

(4.5 + 2) × 2 = 13

(13 + 2.5 ) × 2.5 = 38.75


  1. 2


2 × 6.5 = 13

3 × 6 = 18

4 × 5.5 = 22

5 × 5 = 25

6 × 4.5 = 27

7 × 4 = 28

8 × 3.5 = 28


  1. 4


1 + 1^3 = 2

2 + 2^3 = 10

3 + 3^3 = 30

4 + 4^3 = 68

5 + 5^3 = 130

6 + 63 = 222

7 + 73 = 350


  1. 3

11 × 2 + 2 = 24

24 ÷ 2 + 4 = 16

16 × 2+ 6 = 38

38 ÷ 2 + 8 = 27

27 × 2 + 10 = 64

64 ÷ 2 + 12 = 44


  1. 2


821 – 19^2 = 460

460 + 17^2 = 749

749 – 13^2 = 580

580 + 11^2 = 701

701 – 7^2 = 652

652 + 52 = 677


  1. 4


  1. 12 x^2 – 6x – 7x + 21 = 0

x = 3, 7/2


  1. 2y^2 – 7y + 3 = 0

y = 3, 1/2


  1. 2


  1. x^2 – 12x + 35 = 0

x = 7 or 5


  1. 6y^2 + 11y + 3 = 0

y = -1/3, -3/2


x > y


  1. 5


  1. 2x^2 – 17 x + 21= 0

or, 2x^2 – 14 x – 3 x + 21 = 0

x = 7 or 3/2


  1. y^2 – 15 y + 56 = 0

y^2 – 8y – 7y + 56 = 0

y(y – 8) – 7 (y – 8) = 0

(y – 8) (y – 7)

y = 8, 7

x <= y


  1. 1
  2. x^2 + 2x – 8 = 0

x^2 + 4 x – 2 – 8 = 0

x = – 4 or +2


  1. 2 y^2 – 15 y + 28 = 0

y = 7/2, 4


x < y


  1. 3


  1. x = 1/3


  1. 9y^2 – 6y + 1 = 0

(3y – 1)^2 = 0

y = 1/3

x = y
