= 210 – 10.80 = 199.2

2. (1); ? = 789613 – 658748 – 124563 = 6302

4. (5); ? = 63.04 + 15.25 + 36.004 = 114.294

= 343 + 25 + 0.25 = 368.25

= 144 + ?2 = 125 x 3.2 = 400

= ?2 = 400 – 144 = 256

Therefore, ? = 19 x 19 = 361

= 38.64

14. (2); ? = x 12 = 1644     15. (5)  16. (5)   17. (1)  18. (3)  19. (4)  20. (2)  21. (3)  22. (1)  23. (2)  24. (4)  25. (5)  26. (3)  27. (1)  28. (1)  29. (4)  30. (5)  31. (3)  32. (3)  33. (5)  34. (2)3  5. (5)
