20, 40, 60, and 80 are between 15 and 85 and are also divisible by 20. So 4 integers between 15 and 85 are divisible by 20. 2. How many edges does an octagonal prism have? 8 x 3 = 24 edges. 3. Mickey’s age is 4 years less than 300% of Jerry’s age. If Mickey is 14 years old, how old is Jerry? M = 300% x J  4 14 = 3J  4 18 = 3J J = 6 so Jerry is 6 years old. 4. A particular multivitamin contains 120 mcg of chromium which represents 125% of the recommended daily amount. What is the recommended daily amount of chromium, in mcg ? 120 = 125% of D 120 = 1.25 x D D = 96 so the recommended daily allowance of chromium is 96 mcg. 5. What is the sum of the 10 smallest positive multiples of three? 3 + 6 + 9 + 12 + 15 + 18 + 21 + 24 + 27 + 30 = 33 x (5) = 165

6. How many of the letters in MATHCOUNTS have a horizontal line of symmetry?
H, C, O so 3 letters. 7. Billy takes two marbles, without replacement, from a bag that contains only six yellow marbles and three blue marbles. What is the probability that he gets one marble of each color? Express your answer as a common fraction. 1/2 8. What is the volume, in cubic units, of a cube whose surface area is 600 square units? S.A. of a cube = 6s^2 where s is the edge length of the cube. 600 = 6s^2 100 = s^2 s = 10 Volume = s^3 = 10^3 = 1000 cubic units 9. The only garments that a particular factory produces are dresses and shirts. It produces three dresses for every five shirts it makes. If the factory produced a total of 72 garments today, how many dresses did it make? 3 dresses for every 5 shirts makes a total of 8 garments. 72/8 = 9 3 x 9 + 5 x 9 = 27 + 45 = 72 So the factory made 27 dresses. 10. What is the number that yields the same value when it is multiplied by three and then increased by five as when it is multiplied by five then decreased by three? 3N + 5 = 5N  3 8 = 2N N = 4

5. The points (4, 0) and (−4, 0) are two nonconsecutive vertices
of a rhombus with an area of 80 square units. One of the other vertices is (0, K) where K > 0. What is the value of K?

the best
i am rooting for the NC champion Kavi Jain from my school an 8th grader and is excellent at math and got 1st with a perfect 46 in the 2nd most competitive state North Carolina. He is coached by Mrs. Pieper an excellent math teacher that teaches very advanced math like Algebra 1 and 2 and geometry and sometimes to excellent students pre calc for middle school students i took Algebra 1 in 5th grade and did excellent and scored the highest on the EOC, the end of course, which allows you to take credit for that course.
