Explanation
Alex bought 400 hot dogs for the school picnic, and each package contains 8 hot dogs. To find the total number of packages, we need to divide the total number of hot dogs by the number of hot dogs in each package. Therefore, 400 divided by 8 equals 50. So, Alex bought a total of 50 packages of hot dogs.

### Given the picture above, if gear 1 turns clockwise, which other gear(s) will also turn clockwise?

• A.

2 only

• B.

3 only

• C.

2 and 3

• D.

3 and 4

D. 3 and 4
Explanation
If gear 1 turns clockwise, it will cause gear 2 to turn clockwise as well, due to their meshing teeth. Gear 2, in turn, will cause gear 3 to turn clockwise, as they are also meshed together. However, gear 4 is not directly connected to gear 1 or 2, so it will not be affected by the clockwise rotation of gear 1. Therefore, the only gears that will turn clockwise are gear 3 and gear 4.
