A. 8 B. 12 C. 16 D. 20 E. 24 3. When a positive integer x is divided by a positive integer y, the quotient is q and the remainder is r, where q and r are integers.

Question 1: You can make up two equations: A + D + S = 1000 (A-100) + 2D + 2S = 1500 You can solve for anyone of these factors and try to get it down to two factors. D = 1000 - A - S (now plug this in the other equation) A - 100 + 2(1000 - A - S) + 2S = 1500 A + 1900 - 2A - 2S + 2S = 1500 -A = -400 or A = 400 So the answer is C. \$400 for Abbie Question 2: T = G + 4 G = B + 4 B = K + 4 T = 2*K We do a simple substitutions here: T = (B + 4) + 4 (sub'ed for G in the first equation) T = (K+4) +4 + 4 (sub'ed for B now) T = K + 12 (we also know from the last equation) 2K = K +12 K = 12 Now we substitute this number back and eventually find out that D. G = 20 Question 3: x/y = q + r/y (a remainder is nothing more then the extra part remaining when x is divided by y. So we know the remainder can be added to the quotient if we simply divided the remainder with y. For example 7/2 = 3 + 1/2 with x being 7, y being 2, q being 3 and r being 1) (x + 2qy)/y --> we now simply this equation: x/y + 2qy/y x/y + 2q --> now substitute the first equation into here q + r/y + 2q Okay so I definitely didn't show this the right way, but I believe the answer is E. r. I would greatly appreciate if someone can confirm this or not. From the last equation I've shown. We have 3q which means three time the quotient. So the remainder is still the same as from the above equation, namely r.

Your mind is reacting to the stress you experienced over your math test. Your mind recognized that the skill of solving math problems helped relieve this stress so your mind is actually growing to accommodate this skill. I hope that you look at this as the blessing it is because while you are sleeping your mind is actually laying out new neural connections specifically for math. Try an experiment: Go out and get a low cost musical instrument like a recorder (wind instrument) and try learning the basics of it. I think you might find that you pick it up fairly easily. Studies have shown that musical ability and a talent for math usually go together. The war dreams are directly related to current events. The Iraq situation, Afghanistan, Guantanamo (an obvious reference to a prison camp). Although you don't actively think about the war, the constant bombardment of news and opinion is all around us. And even though you may not consciously perceive these events they are still affecting you and your sub-conscience is dealing with them. During my youth (late 60's) I used to have terrible nightmares about nuclear (nucular? lol) war. Just a sign of the times!

Your mind just has a temporary "math overload" and it is fascinated with the notion of being able to solve the problems. They can also be a surrogate for wanting to solve bigger problems, like world problems, which is where the warriors come in. When there are larger conflicts at hand - we can dream that we want to solve them as readily as the math problem. You are tired of being in conflict with someone, which I think is a separate issue that just became part of the same dream - you are tired of fighting for your social independence or your social standing or something. You wish things were better, you wish you could get some situations resolved and help out other people, perhaps. Some of that could be financial - symbolized by the food. Or do you feel in conflict about relationships? This can also start to color your dreams oddly - your mind starts trying to open the topic with you if you are lonely or entering your mid-to-later teens, etc.

I read somewhere that when you sleep you solve math promblems i guess you just remeber the dreams and see the process. WOW

Sorry, I'm kind of in a rush, so I can only give you the probable answer to Four: B. It is the only one that is likely. Everything else is impossible when you think over them.

Well it was Eve who took the apple to Adam... wow we have always been backstabbing bi***es haven't we? No but really props to you for bringing up this matter! Women in today's culture (well women have always been like this but...) think it is okay to run around and live in the moment and not think about the future! Women can be nice! But we all have a mean streaks (come on admit it nobodies perfect)!But let me tell you exactly why girls are like that! Girls want power and anyone who they think is a threat they tear down (it is sad but true)! If they think that someone can come in and take there power that's when they become mean! Jealousy is at the base of every mean girl! Don't believe me? Alright I will prove it, lets say you are in a modeling class you are the most beautiful, the most talented and you have worked the most, and people suck up to you! But then a new girl comes into your modeling class (don don donn) she is way prettier, has worked on more impressive things then you and she walks the runway like an angel! What are you going to do? I know! You are going to build yourself up to her and try to make yourself be better, try to make your resume more impressive you are going to try everything but above all you are going to be mean! See that mean girl is just jealous! The only way to deal with people like that is to be SUPER nice to them! I know I hate it to but wait until you see the look on her face when you open the door for her! She will be so pissed! LOL! Trust me it is worth it!

A world filled with classy women will not make the problems less complicated. Men make decisions based on logic. Women generally use emotions (There are exceptions to the rule, of course). Allowing your heart to rule your head (which is what most women do) is what makes a simple problem complicated.
