Explanation
Based on the information provided, we can calculate the time it took for Ted to drive 272 miles by dividing the distance by the average speed. 272 miles divided by 68 mph equals 4 hours. Therefore, it took Ted 4 hours to drive the 272 miles in his new sports car.

Mr Drysdale earned \$906.25 in interest in one year on money that he had deposited in his local bank. If the bank paid an interest rate of 6.25%, how much money did Mr Drysdale deposit?

Explanation
To find the amount of money Mr Drysdale deposited, we can use the formula for simple interest: Interest = Principal * Rate * Time. In this case, the interest earned is \$906.25 and the interest rate is 6.25%. We can rearrange the formula to solve for the principal: Principal = Interest / (Rate * Time). Plugging in the values, we get Principal = \$906.25 / (0.0625 * 1) = \$14,500.00. Therefore, Mr Drysdale deposited \$14,500.00.

There's some number that if you subtract 15 from it first, and then multiply that total by 7, the result is 28.  Find the number.

Explanation
If we let the unknown number be represented by x, the given information can be translated into the equation (x - 15) * 7 = 28. By simplifying this equation, we can find that x - 15 = 4. Adding 15 to both sides of the equation, we get x = 19. Therefore, the number we are looking for is 19.
