A UFO was detected on the Radar flying 7400 miles in 3 minutes. What is the estimated speed per hour?
Correct Answer
D. 148000 miles/ hour

Therefore, the correct answer is 148000 miles/hour.

Maria is going on a road trip that is 600 miles long. Her friend recommends that she buy engine oil A because it will save her 60 cents in gas for every 20 miles of the trip. Oil A, however, will cost $35. Is it worthwhile for Maria to buy the oil if she has a coupon for $10 off the price?
Correct Answer
B. No
Explanation
The cost of the oil is $35, but with the coupon, Maria would only have to pay $25. However, she needs to consider the savings in gas. For every 20 miles, she saves 60 cents, which means for the entire 600-mile trip, she would save $18 in gas. Since the cost of the oil is higher than the savings in gas, it is not worthwhile for Maria to buy the oil even with the coupon.
