|1. Jason leaves a pan of water outside for his dogs during the summer. The pan is 13 cm deep and is 25 cm wide and 25 cm long. If the dogs drink 600 cm3 of water every day, how many days will it last before he has to refill it?||2. Two scientists sent their data back to camp using a satellite uplink. One reported the heights of trees in decimal, and the other used mixed numbers. The two tallest trees in each scientist's data set were 47 2/5 meters and 47.61 meters respectively. Which tree was taller?|
|3. Ms. Floop made a small garden border from some small lightweight concrete cylinders she found at a surplus sale. She set the cylinders in the ground lengthwise next to each other to make a border that was 6 meters in length. Each cylinder was 0.2 meters tall and had a diameter of 0.1 meters. If the density of the concrete used to make the cylinders was 700 kg/m3, what was the total mass of concrete she had to move from the place of purchase to her garden location?||4. Allen Ginsberg, known as a leader of the beat literary movement, wrote of his dissatisfaction with the conformity and false values he saw in society. Many of the beat writers and artists lived in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. If Mr. Ginsberg lived on Bleecker Street in the Village, eleven blocks from his favorite restaurant in Chinatown, how long would it take him to walk to the restaurant at the rate of 2.8 miles per hour? (Hint: The average length of a city block is 0.1 miles.)|
|5. A factory fabricates cylindrical above ground swimming pools. They cut the material for a pool side from a large roll of strong but flexible plastic that is 5 feet wide. If they are making a pool that holds 20,000 cubic feet of water, how long does the piece of plastic need to be? You may use a calculator on this one.||6. Jessica used some thin pieces of attractive wood to laminate a small plain-looking wooden box. She only applied the laminate to one side of each piece of wood the box was made from. If the laminate was 1/16 of an inch thick and the original piece of wood was 1/2 of an inch thick, how thick was the piece after it had been laminated?|
|7. Dylan is filling a sink to wash some dishes. The sink fills at a rate of 1.8 cubic feet per minute. If the sink is approximately shaped like a cube measuring 19 inches on a side, how long will it take to fill it?||8. In Morgan's coin collection, 7/8 of the coins were from the United States. What decimal number represents the amount of coins in her collection that are not from the United States?|
