\(Let A=6^2^0, B=2^6^0, and C=4^5^0.\) Which of the following is true? A. A<B<C B. A<C<B C. B<A<C D. B<C<A E. C<B<A ==> You can compare the big and small numbers by making the base or the exponent the same. From\(A=6^2^0, B=2^6^0=(2^3)^2^0=8^2^0\), you get 6<8, which becomes A<B, and from \(B=2^6^0=(2^2)^3^0=4^3^0, C=4^5^0,\) you get 30<50, which becomes B<C. Thus, you get A<B<C. The answer is A. Answer: A

In the xy plane, what is the slope between yintercept and a negative xintercept of \(y=x^2+x6\)? A. 2 B. 3 C. 2 D. 4 E. 6 ==> From y=x2+x6=(x+3)(x2)=0, the xintercept becomes (3,0) or (2,0), and (0,6). From these, the negative xintercept is (3,0) and the negative yintercept is (0,6). The slope of the straight line that passes through the two points becomes \(\frac{0(6)}{30=2}\) The answer is A. Answer: A

You get the figure shown above, and according to the Pythagorean Theorem, you get \(r^2=(r2)^2+6^2=r^24r+4+36\), and if you get rid of \(r^2\) on both sides and simplify the equation, from 4r=40, you get r=10. Thus, it becomes the area of the circle, which is \(π10^2=100π\). The answer is C. Answer: C

If n is the product of 3 consecutive integers, which of the following must be true? I. a multiple of 2 II. a multiple of 3 III. a multiple of 4 A. I only B. II only C. III only D. I and II E. II and III ==> If n is the product of 3 consecutive integers, it is always even and has 3, so it is always a multiple of 6. Thus, I and II is correct and for III, since n=1*2*3=6 is not a multiple of 4, hence it is incorrect. The answer is D. Answer: D
