Solutions:

1. a) 25.2

18.3 + 2.3 = 20.6
20.6 - 4.6 = 16
16 + 6.9 = 22.9
22.9 - 9.2 = 13.7
13.7 +11.5 = 25.2
25.2 - 13.8 = 11.4

2. c) 61

9*0.5 + 0.5 = 5
5*1 + 1 = 6
6*1.5 + 1.5 = 10.5
10.5*2 + 2 = 23
23*2.5 + 2.5 = 60
60*3 + 3 = 183

3. e) 188

186 - 36 = 154
154 - 16 = 140
140 - 8 = 132
132 - 4 = 128
128 - 2 = 126
126 - 1 = 125

4. d) 151

2*1 + 2 = 4
4*2 + 3 = 11
11*3 + 4 = 37
37*4 + 5 = 153
153*5 + 6 = 771
771*6 + 7 = 4633

5. b) 394

391 + 2 = 393
393 + 6 = 399
399 + 12 = 441
441+ 20 = 431
431 + 30 = 461
461 +40 = 503
