4.25 is the same as
Correct Answer
B. 4^{1}/4
Explanation
The correct answer is 41/4 because when we convert the mixed number 4 1/5 into an improper fraction, we multiply the whole number (4) by the denominator of the fraction (5) and add the numerator (1) to get the numerator of the improper fraction. The denominator remains the same. So, 4 1/5 becomes (4*5 + 1)/5 = 21/5. To simplify this fraction, we divide the numerator (21) by the denominator (5), which gives us 4 remainder 1. Therefore, 21/5 is equivalent to 4 1/5, which is the same as 41/4.

Mirror tiles measure 10 cm by 10 cm.
How many tiles are needed to make a mirror that measures 40 cm by 30 cm?
Correct Answer
A. 12
Explanation
To determine the number of tiles needed, we need to find the area of the mirror and divide it by the area of each tile. The area of the mirror is 40 cm x 30 cm = 1200 cm^2. The area of each tile is 10 cm x 10 cm = 100 cm^2. Dividing the area of the mirror by the area of each tile gives us 1200 cm^2 / 100 cm^2 = 12 tiles. Therefore, 12 tiles are needed to make a mirror that measures 40 cm by 30 cm.

A person weighed 10 ^{3}/_{4} stone before going on a diet.
She lost 1 ^{1}/_{2} stone.
How much did the person weigh at the end of the diet?
Correct Answer
B. 9 ^{1}/4 stone
Explanation
The person weighed 10 3/4 stone before going on a diet. They lost 1 1/2 stone during the diet. To find out how much they weighed at the end of the diet, we subtract 1 1/2 stone from 10 3/4 stone. This can be done by converting both fractions to a common denominator, which in this case is 4. 10 3/4 stone is equivalent to 43/4 stone, and 1 1/2 stone is equivalent to 6/4 stone. Subtracting 6/4 stone from 43/4 stone gives us 37/4 stone, which simplifies to 9 1/4 stone. Therefore, the person weighed 9 1/4 stone at the end of the diet.
