372

• B.

374

• C.

376

• D.

437

B. 374
Explanation
The correct answer is 374. This is obtained by adding the digits in the ones place, which gives us 9 + 5 = 14. We write down the 4 and carry over the 1 to the tens place. Then, we add the digits in the tens place, which gives us 3 + 3 + 1 (carried over) = 7. Therefore, the sum of 139 and 235 is 374.

3/4

C. 9/16
Explanation
The given expression is a combination of addition and multiplication. According to the order of operations, we should first perform the multiplication, which is ¼ multiplied by 3/4. This equals 3/16. Then, we add ½ to 3/16. To add these fractions, we need a common denominator, which is 16. ½ is equivalent to 8/16. Adding 8/16 and 3/16 gives us 11/16. Therefore, the correct answer is 11/16.

The series follows a pattern where each number is obtained by adding a certain value to the previous number. In this case, the pattern is that each number is obtained by adding 4 to the previous number. Starting from 4, adding 4 gives 8, adding 4 again gives 12, and so on. Therefore, the next number in the series is obtained by adding 4 to 20, resulting in 24.

Larry Pickett earns a 6 percent commission on all sales. Since his sales totaled \$65,500.00, his commission would be 6% of \$65,500.00, which is \$3,930.00. Since his commission exceeds \$3,000.00, he would receive a \$700.00 bonus. Therefore, his total pay would be \$3,930.00 + \$700.00, which equals \$4,630.00.

### Tanisha Campbell sells commercial real estate. She earns 2 percent commission on the first \$25,000.00, 4 percent on the next \$25,000.00, and 8 percent on sales over \$50,000.00. Last month, she sold \$118,000.00 in commercial real estate. What was her total commission?

Explanation
Tanisha Campbell's total commission can be calculated by finding the commission earned on each tier of sales and adding them together.
For the first \$25,000.00, she earns a 2 percent commission, which is \$500.00.
For the next \$25,000.00, she earns a 4 percent commission, which is \$1,000.00.
For the remaining \$68,000.00 (\$118,000.00 - \$25,000.00 - \$25,000.00), she earns an 8 percent commission, which is \$5,440.00.
Adding all of these commissions together, her total commission is \$500.00 + \$1,000.00 + \$5,440.00 = \$6,940.00.
Therefore, the correct answer is 6940.
