    The car uses 16 gallons of gas to travel 384 miles. To find the miles per gallon, we need to divide the total distance traveled by the amount of gas used. In this case, 384 miles divided by 16 gallons gives us 24 miles per gallon.

    A train must travel to a certain town in six days.  The town is 3,300 miles away.  How many miles must the train average each day to reach its destination?

    • A.

      500 miles

    • B.

    • C.

      550 miles

    • D.

      575 miles

    Correct Answer
    C. 550 miles
    Explanation
    To reach the town in six days, the train must cover a total distance of 3,300 miles. To calculate the average distance the train must cover each day, we divide the total distance by the number of days. Therefore, 3,300 miles divided by 6 days equals 550 miles per day.

    Roger has completed 78% of his 200-page thesis.  How many pages has he written?

    • A.

      150

    • B.

    • C.

      165

    • D.

      160

    Correct Answer
    B. 156
    Explanation
    Since Roger has completed 78% of his 200-page thesis, we can calculate the number of pages he has written by multiplying 200 by 78% (or 0.78). This gives us 156 pages. Therefore, the correct answer is 156.

    Explanation
    To solve the expression, we first simplify the parentheses by performing the subtraction inside. 7-2 equals 5. Then, we multiply 3 by 5, which equals 15. Finally, we add 15 to 5, resulting in 20. Therefore, the correct answer is 20.
