(vii) 4 (10% of 60 is 6, therefore 20% is 12 and 12 divided by 3 is 4).

(xi) 228 (15 divided by 13 is 1 and 2 carried. 26 divided by 13 = 2, therefore 156 divided by 13 = 12. 70 x 3 = 210 plus 2x3 = 6, therefore 72 x 3 = 216. 216 + 12 = 228).
(xii) 1092 (52 X 10 = 520 x 2 = 1040. Therefore 20 x 52 = 1040 plus the other 52 = 1092).
(xiii) 108
(xxi) 975 (2 x 75 = 150, therefore 4 x 75 = 300, therefore 12 x 75 = 900, then add the remaining 75 = 975).
(xxiv) 559
(xxvi) 616 (56 x 10 = 560 plus the remaining 56 = 616).
