Add 0.98+45.102+32.3333+31+0.00009.
A) 368.573
B) 210.536299
C) 109.415539
D) 99.9975
There are two ways to solve this question. First, you can add all the given numbers and find the exact answer. This method is time consuming and is less efficient.
Second, you can add only the numbers on the left of the decimal and then compare your answer with the answer choices that you are given. We add 45, 32, and 31 to get 45+32+31=108. Now, we can easily interpret that our answer must be very close to 108 when we also add the decimal point for each given number. In the answer choices, only option (C) is a number that is close to 108. (Note that this method of approximation saves time, but it is not very accurate if all the answer choices are very close to each other.)
(9/3)x(8/4)=
This is a very simple question. All you need to know is the PEMDAS rule. First of all, solve what is within the parenthesis and then multiply the answers of each parenthesis.
9 divided by 3 equals 3.
8 divided by 4 equals 2.
Multiply 3 and 2 to get the final answer. 3x2=6
7.95/1.5=
It's a simple division question. When you divide 7.95 by 1.5 you get 5.3.
To confirm your answer, you can cross-check by multiplying 5.3 by 1.5 producing 7.95.
Melissa is ordering fencing to enclose a square area of 5625 square feet. How many feet of fencing does she need?
Use the area to find the length of a side of the square:
A=l*w=l^2
5,625 ft^2=l^2
l=square root of 5,625 ft^2=75 ft
now multiply the side length by 4 to find the perimeter:
P=4l
P=4(75 ft)=300 ft
If a discount of 25% off the retail price of a desk saves Mark $45, how much did he pay for the desk?
A. $145
B. $160
C. $180
D. $210
E. $215
From the given information in the question, you know that 25% of the actual price of the desk is $45. Writing this in the form of an equation, it becomes: (25/100) * x=$45 (25% of x equals $45)
x=45/0.25-> $180
Therefore, the actual price of the desk equals $180.
What number is 5% of 2000?
To find 5% of 2000, multiple 2000 by 5/100
i.e. 2000*0.05=100
A sporting goods store is offering an additional 30% off all clearance items. Angie purchases a pair of running shoes on clearance for $65.00. If the shoes originally cost $85.00, what was her total discount?
First, take the additional 30% off the clearance price:
$65.00*70/100=$45.50
Next, find what percentage of $85.00 is $45.50: $45.50/$85.00=x/100
($45.50)(100)=($85.00)(x)
x=($45.50)(100)/$85.00=53.5
Angie is paying 53.5% of the original price, which means she received a 100%-53.5%=46.5% discount.

Jane earns $15 per hour babysitting. If she starts out with $275 in her bank account, which of the following equations represents how many hours she will have to babysit for her account to reach $400?
The money Jane earns is equal to $15 times the number of hours she babysits:
15h
The total money in Jane's bank account is equal to the money she started with plus the money she earns:
275 =+ 15h
Set this expression equal to $400"
400=275+15h
Anna is buying fruit at the farmer's market. She selects 1.2 kilograms of apples, 800 grams of bananas, and 300 grams of strawberries. The farmer charges her a flat rate of $4 per kilogram. What is the total cost?
A) $4.40
B) $5.24
C) $48.80
D) 9.20
First, convert everything to kilograms:
800g* 1kg/1000g=0.8kg
300g*1kg/1000g=0.3kg
Next, find the total weight:
1.2 kg + 0.8kg + 0.3kg = 2.3kg
Now, find the total cost by multiplying by $4/kg:
2.3kg*$4/1kg=$9.20
Leslie needs to make a pie and some cupcakes. The pie requires 3/8 of a cup of sugar the cupcakes require 3/5 of a cup of sugar. Leslie has 15/16 of a cup of sugar. Does she have enough sugar, or how much more does she need?
A) She has enough sugar.
B) She needs 1/8 of a cup of sugar
C) She needs 3/80 of a cup of sugar
D) She needs 4/19 of a cup of sugar
The pie requires 3/8 = 0.375 cup of sugar, whereas cupcakes require 3/5=0.6 cup of sugar. This makes a total of 0.375+0.6=0975 cup of sugar.
Leslie has 15/16=0.9375 cup of sugar.
Therefore, it is clear that Leslie needs more sugar than she already has. The exact amount of sugar the pie required can be calculated by subtracting total sugar from required sugar, ie:
0.978-0.9375=0.0375
If 13x+21=5. Which of the following options gives us the correct values of x?
A) (1, -7/3)
B) (-1, 7/3)
C) (3,7)
D) 7/3, 3/7)
Rewrite the given equation as:
[3x+2]=5
+(3x+2)=5 or -(3x+2)=5
x=1 or x=-7/3
Therefore, (1, -7/3)
If (2k+4)/8=2, which of the following values of k satisfies this equation?
A) (12 2)
B) (4, 5)
C) (3, 6)
D) (-10, 6)
The given equation can be rewritten as:
[2k+4]/8=2 -> [2k+4]=16
+(2k+4)=16 -> 2k=12 -> k=6
Or, -(2k+4)=16 -> -2k-4=16 ->2k=20 -> k=-10
Therefor, k=-10,6
If 2x+7/9<2, which of the following options is correct?
A) 3x<21/3
B) x>-3
C) x<11/2
D) 2x>1
Consider the given inequality:
2x+7/9 < 2
Multiply by 9 on both sides: 2x+7<18
Subtract 7 on both sides: 2x<18-7
2x<11
Divide by 2 on both sides: x<11/2

C) 32
D) 18
This question looks like a lengthy multiplication question, but actually it's not. You know that 25
5=125. Similarly, 7
2=14. This means that the denominators of all the fractions are canceled out by numerators of second and third fractions, and you are left with only 4*4=16.
What is the result when we multiply these given fractions? 2/9
3/25
125/6*3/10=
A) 1/5
B) 1/6
C) 6
D) 11/30
A simple trick in solving these complex fraction-multiplication questions is to look for the numbers that can cancel each other. For example, in this given question, we see that 3*3=9, which cancels the 9 of the denominator.
Similarly, 125/25=5/1=5
The net result of this multiplication after cancellation of numerators and denominators becomes: 2/6
5
1/10=1/6 or 5/30
What is the result when we add these given fractions? 1/5+4/25=
A) 8/25
B) 5/29
C) 9/25
D) 5/20
Adding the given fractions, we get: 1(5) + 4/25 -> 5+4/25 -> 9/25
Alan bought a pizza with 8 slices. He at 3 slices of pizza for lunch and left the remaining pizza for Jenny. What fraction of pizza did Alan leave for Jenny?
A) 3/8
B) 1/2
C) 4/5
D) 5/8
There were a total of 8 slices of pizza, which means that each slice was 1/8 of the total pizza. Alan ate 3 slices, i.e. 1/8+1/8+1/8=3/8.
Remaining slices= 1-3/8 -> 8-3/8 ->5/8
What is the result of the following expression?
(3/4+1/5)-(2/3+3/2)=
A) 7/8
B) -73/60
C) 73/60
D) -26/30
Finding the sum of the expressions in the parenthesis first, you get:
(3/4 + 1/5) -> 15 + 4/20 = 19/20
(2/3 + 3/2) -> 4 + 9/6 -> 13/6
Now, 19/20-13/6 = 19(6) - 13(20)/120 -> -146/120
-> 73/60
What is the result of the following expression?
2/9+(5/6-1/2)=
A) 5/12
B) 7/9
C) 5/9
D) 8/45
Finding the difference of fractions given the parenthesis first, you get:
5/6 - 1/2 = 5 - (-3)/6 = 2/6 = 1/3
now, 2/9 + 1/3 -> 2+3/9 -> 5/9
