### Round 577,312 to the nearest thousand.

• A.

577,000

• B.

577,300

• C.

578,000

• D.

580,000

A. 577,000
Explanation
To round 577,312 to the nearest thousand, we look at the digit in the hundreds place, which is 7. Since 7 is less than 5, we do not round up. Therefore, the thousands digit remains the same, and the rest of the digits are replaced with zeros. Hence, the closest thousand is 577,000.

Diameter.

Explanation
A segment in a circle refers to a part of the circle that is bounded by a chord. A radius is a line segment that connects the center of the circle to any point on the circumference. Since the segment in the question is described as a radius, it implies that it connects the center of the circle to a point on the circumference. Therefore, the correct answer is radius.

• A.

7

• B.

8

• C.

36

• D.

### Which unit would you use to measure the water used to take a shower?

• A.

Gallon

• B.

Pint

• C.

Cup

• D.

Fluid ounce

A. Gallon
Explanation
The gallon is the appropriate unit to measure the water used to take a shower because it is a larger unit of measurement compared to pint, cup, and fluid ounce. Showers typically use a significant amount of water, and gallons are commonly used to measure larger quantities of liquid. Pints, cups, and fluid ounces are smaller units of measurement that would not accurately represent the amount of water used during a shower.

### Which is the most reasonable estimate for 12 x 472?

• A.

5,000

• B.

8,000

• C.

50,000

• D.

80,000

A. 5,000
Explanation
The most reasonable estimate for 12 x 472 is 5,000 because when multiplying 12 by 472, we can round both numbers to the nearest hundred. 12 is close to 0 and 472 is close to 500. When we multiply these rounded numbers (0 x 500), we get 0. Therefore, the product of 12 x 472 is likely to be closer to 0 than any of the other given options.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Which product is NOT the same as 6 x 3 x 5?

• A.

• C.

30 x 3

• D.

6 x 18

D. 6 x 18
Explanation
The product of 6 x 3 x 5 is equal to 90. Among the given options, the only product that is not equal to 90 is 6 x 18, which equals 108.

Rate this question:

• 21.

### Which number sentence is TRUE?

• A.

0.9

• B.

0.6>0.57

• C.

0.35>0.4

• D.

0.52

B. 0.6>0.57
Explanation
The number sentence "0.6 > 0.57" is true because 0.6 is greater than 0.57. In decimal numbers, the greater the number, the further it is to the right on the number line. So, 0.6 is to the right of 0.57, indicating that it is greater.

### Find 23,816 + 71,614.

• A.

94,426

• B.

95,403

• C.

95,430

• D.

95,490

C. 95,430
Explanation
To find the sum of 23,816 and 71,614, we add the corresponding digits in each place value. Starting from the rightmost place value, 6 + 4 equals 10, so we carry over the 1 to the next place value. In the next place value, we have 1 + 1 + 1 (carried over) which equals 3. Continuing this process, we get 3 + 6 + 7 + 1 = 17 in the thousands place. Lastly, we add the 1 in the ten thousands place. Therefore, the sum is 95,430.

• B.

\$105.50

• C.

\$13.95

• D.

\$10.55

C. \$13.95
Explanation
The total cost of the fabric can be calculated by multiplying the number of yards purchased (5) by the cost per yard (\$2.79). So, 5 x \$2.79 = \$13.95.

### Which is the most reasonable estimate for 315 divided by 4?

• A.

8

• B.

9

• C.

80

• D.

90

C. 80
Explanation
The most reasonable estimate for 315 divided by 4 is 80. This can be determined by dividing the hundreds digit of 315 (3) by 4, which gives us 0. Since 0 is less than 4, the quotient will be less than 100. Therefore, 80 is the closest and most reasonable estimate for the division.

### Use mental math to divide 5,400 divided by 90.

• A.

6

• B.

60

• C.

600

• D.

6,000

B. 60
Explanation
To divide 5,400 by 90 mentally, we can recognize that both numbers are divisible by 10. Dividing 5,400 by 10 gives us 540. Next, we divide 540 by 9 (since 90 divided by 10 is 9). Dividing 540 by 9 gives us 60. Therefore, the answer is 60.

### Find the perimeter of the rectangle.

• A.

14 m

• B.

20 m

• C.

28 m

• D.

48 m

C. 28 m
Explanation
The perimeter of a rectangle is found by adding up the lengths of all its sides. In this case, the given sides are 14 m and 20 m. Adding these two sides together gives a total of 34 m. However, since the question asks for the perimeter, we need to double this value to account for both the length and width of the rectangle. Therefore, the correct answer is 28 m.
