### "Jenny's test grades are 93, 89, 96, and 98. If she wishes to raise her average to 95, what does she need to score on her next test?"

(93 + 89 + 96 + 98 + x) ÷ 5 = 95
(376 + x) ÷ 5 = 95
376 + x = 475
x = 99

### " A waitress earns an average tip of 12% of the cost of the food she serves. If she serves \$375 worth of food in one evening, how much money in tips will she earn on average? "

Multiply the total amount spent on drinks, \$375, by 12% to determine the amount of tips.
\$375 × 0.12 = \$45.

### "Carpet stain protector costs \$0.65 per square yard to apply. How much will it cost to apply the protectant to a 16-foot × 18-foot carpet?"

multiply 16 feet by 18 feet to determine the number of square feet, 288. Then divide 288 by 9 to convert square feet to square yards (1 square yard = 3 feet × 3 feet = 9 square feet). Multiply the quotient, 32 square yards, by the cost of protection per square yard, \$0.65, to get the correct answer, \$20.80.

### When current flows through a wire, what is influenced?

Voltage, ohms, and amperes

Inductors

100,000 MHz

### Radio waves travel:

At the speed of light

Rectification

### Insulated fittings can be used to splice wires, thus eliminating the need for:

Soldering the wires together

Battery

9

### To produce greater storage of electrons and more capacitance, capacitors should:

Be connected in parallel

### A light bulb is 60 watts. Operated at 120 volts, how much current does it draw?

0.5 ampere
Power = Current × Voltage
Current = Power/Voltage. 60/120 = 0.5 ampere

### A number-12 wire, compared to a number-6 wire:

Is smaller in diameter
(The larger the number, the smaller (in diameter) the wire.)

### A fuse with a higher-than-required rating used in an electrical circuit:

May not work properly

### Neutral wire is always:

Whitish or natural

### To measure electrical power, you would use a(n):

Wattmeter
(Electrical power is measured in watts, so you use a wattmeter)

### If you operate an incandescent light bulb at less than its rated voltage:

The bulb will burn dimmer and last longer.

### If an alternator overcharges the battery, a likely explanation is:

The voltage regulator isn't working properly.

### A primary advantage of the electronic ignition system over conventional ignition systems is:

The electronic ignition system provides a higher voltage.

### The primary purpose of piston rings is to:

Seal the combustion chamber and allow the pistons to move freely

Crankshaft

Rocker arms

Battery

### A gauge shows the complete loss of oil pressure while driving. The best action is to:

Pull over immediately and investigate the problem.

### A two-cycle engine will normally be found on:

Snowmobiles, chainsaws, and some motorcycles

### The difference between a single-acting and an opposed piston engine is:

Single-acting piston engines have one piston per cylinder and opposed piston engines have two.

### A car equipped with limited-slip differential:

Transfers the most driving force to the wheel with the greatest amount of traction

### Pouring cold water on an overheated engine:

Could cause the engine block to crack

### Soft brake-pedal movement can be caused by:

Air in the hydraulic brake system

### The safest way to make a hole in sheet metal is to:

Punch it using a metal punch

### Rebar is used to:

Reinforce concrete

### Nail sets are used to:

Set nails below the surface of wood

### A ripsaw cuts:

With the grain of the wood

### Sledges can be used to drive:

Bolts and chisels

Level

Drive rivets

### Washers that have teeth all around the circumference to prevent them from slipping are called:

Shakeproof washers

Magnetism

### If a first class lever with a resistance arm measuring 2 feet and an effort arm measuring 8 feet are being used, what's the mechanical advantage?

Mechanical advantage can be calculated as Length of Effort Arm ÷ Length of Resistance Arm. MA = 8 ÷ 2 = 4.

### Air weighs about 15 psi. What's the amount of pressure (force) exerted on the top of your head, given a surface area of 24 inches?

Power equals force divided by area in square inches (P = F/A or F = A × P.
F = 15 × 24 = 360 pounds.

Recoil

### In the figure below, if Gear 1 has 25 teeth and Gear 2 has 15 teeth, how many revolutions does Gear 2 make for every 10 revolutions Gear 1 makes?

Multiply the number of teeth Gear 1 has (D) and the number of revolutions it makes (R). Divide that number by the number of teeth Gear 2 has (d) to determine the number of revolutions Gear 2 makes (r).
r = DR/d
r = (25 × 10)/15
r = 250⁄15, or 1610⁄15, or 162⁄3

Steel

Coupling

### A way to determine the amount of power being used is to:

Divide the amount of work done by the amount of time it takes.
Power = Work ÷ Time.
