### Answer Key

** ****1. B
**#1 = 7

#2 = 9

#3 = 5

1 and 3 are equal.

**2. C
**#1 = 24

#2 = 39

#3 = 43

1 is less than 2 and less than 3.

**3. A**

A = 12

B = 29

C = 37

So – A < B < C

**4. C**

1. 28

2. 31

3. 24

4. 22

2 > 1 > 3

**5. B**

#1 = 16

#2 = 29

#3 = 22

A < B > C

**6. B
**1. 96

2. 44

3. 84

4. 9

1 > 4 < 3

**7. C
**#1 = 23

#2 = 31

#3 = 28

#4 = 22

2 > 1 < 3

**8. A
**#1 = 32

#2 = 3

#3 = 12

#4 = 22

2 is the smallest

**9. B
**#1 = 43

#2 = 3

#3 = 35

#4 = 42

3 and 4 are less than 1

**10. A
**#1 = 39

#2 = 23
