(Hint: Let the total number of minutes on the plan be x. Since Harry has 12/25 of the minutes left, he has used 1 - 12/25 = 13/25 of them. This translates to (13/25)x. This is equal to 260 minutes so the equation is (13/25)x = 260. Therefore x=___) 540 500 600
Q 4 : Mr.B puts $9,000 in charges on his credit card. If these charges are equal to 3/4th of his credit limit. What is his credit limit? (Hint: Let the total credit limit be x.

This is equal to 600 minutes, so the equation is (1/5)x = 600. Therefore x = ____) 1,800 1,200 3,000
Q 7 : Harry received four times as many votes as his only opponent in the school election.
