    Numbers often need to be checked against a source document to ensure accuracy and verify their validity. This is especially important in situations where numerical data is being used for financial or statistical purposes. By comparing the numbers with a reliable source document, any discrepancies or errors can be identified and corrected. This process helps to maintain the integrity and reliability of the data being used. Therefore, the statement "Often numbers must be checked against a source document" is true.

    Explanation
    The statement "Use figures for ages 11 and older" is true. This means that when representing data or information, figures or numerical values should be used for individuals who are 11 years old and above. This is important because using figures allows for more precise and accurate representation of data, especially when dealing with age groups that are older and have a wider range of values.

    • A.

      True

      False

    Correct Answer

    The statement is false because the correct way to write the amount $.15 is $0.15. The decimal point is necessary to indicate the cents value, and it should be placed before the digits representing the cents.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Express dimension, measurement, and weights in figures.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "Express dimension, measurement, and weights in figures" is true. This means that dimensions, measurements, and weights should be represented using numerical values or figures rather than words or descriptions. This is commonly done in fields such as engineering, mathematics, and science, where precise and accurate representations are necessary. Using figures allows for clear and standardized communication of these quantitative values.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Interest periods that include the year, month, and day should be written in figures. This means that instead of writing out the month and day in words, they should be written as numbers. For example, instead of writing "January 1, 2022," it should be written as "01/01/2022." This helps to ensure clarity and consistency when communicating dates and avoids any potential confusion or misinterpretation.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Zeros ______ required for on hour times.

    • A.

      Are

    • B.

      Are not

    Correct Answer

    The given answer "are not" suggests that zeros are not required for one-hour times. This means that when expressing the time in a 12-hour format, such as 1:00 or 9:00, it is not necessary to include a leading zero before the hour. However, if the time is expressed in a 24-hour format, zeros may be required for one-hour times, such as 01:00 or 09:00.
