PHYSICS
You stand on a bathroom scale in a moving elevator. What happens to the scale reading if the cable holding the elevator suddenly breaks? (a) The reading will increase. (b) The reading will not change. (c) The reading will decrease a little. (d) The reading will drop to 0 instantly.
PHYSICS
At what temperature is the reading on the Fahrenheit scale twice the reading on the Celsius scale?
PHYSICS
A man stands on a scale and holds a heavy object in his hands.What happens to the scale reading if the man quickly lifts the object upward and then stops lifting it? (a) The reading increases, returns briefly to the reading when standing stationary, then decreases. (b) The reading decreases, returns briefly to the reading when standing stationary, then increases. (c) Nothing, since the mass of the person with the object remains the same. Thus the reading does not change.

LITERATURE
How is the experience of reading Bishop’s and Collins’s free verse poems different from reading Roethke’s more traditional poem?
PHYSICS
A fish rests on the bottom of a bucket of water while the bucket is being weighed. When the fish begins to swim around in the bucket, how does the reading on the scale change? F. The motion of the fish causes the scale reading to increase. G. The motion of the fish causes the scale reading to decrease. H. The buoyant force on the fish is exerted downward on the bucket, causing the scale reading to increase. J. The mass of the system, and so the scale reading, will remain unchanged.
STATISTICS
All the fourth-graders in a certain elementary school took a standardized test. A total of 85% of the students were found to be proficient in reading, 78% were found to be proficient in mathematics, and 65% were found to be proficient in both reading and mathematics. A student is chosen at random. a. What is the probability that the student is proficient in mathematics but not in reading? b. What is the probability that the student is proficient in reading but not in mathematics? c. What is the probability that the student is proficient in neither reading nor mathematics?
PHYSICS
Four identical spring scales, A, B, C, and D are used to bang a 220.0 N sack of potatoes. (a) Assume the scales have negligible weights and all four scales show the same reading. What is the reading of each scale? (b) Suppose that each scale has a weight of 5.0 N. If scales B and D show the same reading, what is the reading of each scale?
QUESTION
Data on the IQ test scores and reading test scores and reading test scores for a group of fifth-grade children give the regression line, reading score = -33.4 + 0.882(IQ score) for predicting reading score from IQ score. Draw a graph of the regression line for IQs between 90 and 30. (Be sure to show the scales for the x and y axes.)

STATISTICS
The reading speed of sixth-grade students is approximately normal, with a mean speed of 125 words per minute and a standard deviation of 24 words per minute. (a) What is the reading speed of a sixth-grader whose reading speed is at the 90th percentile? (b) A school psychologist wants to determine reading rates for unusual students (both slow and fast). Determine the reading rates of the middle 95% of all sixth-grade students. What are the cutoff points for unusual readers?
QUESTION
At 3 P.M., a dry-bulb thermometer reading is $66^\circ F$. The wet-bulb reading is $66^\circ F$. What is the relative humidity? Explain.
QUESTION
Data on the IQ test scores and reading test scores for a group of fifth-grade children give the following regression line: predicted reading score = -33.4 + 0.882 (IQ score). Find the predicted reading score for a child with an IQ score of 90.
QUESTION
A school librarian purchases a novel for her library. The publisher claims that the book is written at a fifth-grade reading level, but the librarian suspects that the reading level is lower than that. The librarian selects a random sample of 40 pages and uses a standard readability test to assess the reading level of each page. The mean reading level of these pages is 4.8 with a standard deviation of 0.8. Do these data give convincing evidence at the $\alpha=0.05$ significance level that the average reading level of this novel is less than 5?
