    0.12x + 0.1(1000000-x) = 115000

    0.02x = 15000

    x = 750000

    Answer A.

    [ (22-10) / 10 ] (100%) = 120%

    Answer A.

    [ (2y+1)/(x+3) ] (100%)

    Answer C.

    (2125)(6) - (1920)(5) = 3150

    Answer D.

    D = 2R

    R = 2+E

    2R+8 = 10 + R-2+8

    R = 8

    Answer B.

    T = 4W-3

    T-2 = 5(W-2)

    4W-3-2 = 5W-10


    T-1=4(5)-3-1 = 16

    Answer B.

    (8-3, 2-4) = (5, -2)

    Answer not in the options.

    I do think of that the two your calculation and the calculation of the e book is faulty the no of video games could be 28+24+20+sixteen+12+8+4+0 =112 (rationalization- First group performs 7*4 video games in entire against 7 communities.2d communities video games against the 1st group has already been lined and for this reason they could play 6*4 or 24 video games.the third communities interest against the 1st 2 communities having already been lined,they're going to could play5*4 or 20 video games.this could go on and the final group will have no group left to play against as all their video games would be lined until now for this reason the full no of video games are 28+24+20+sixteen+12+8+4+0 =112 )
