Mary, who is sixteen years old, is four times as old as her brother. How old will Mary be when she is twice as old as her brother?
Correct Answer
B. 24
Explanation
Mary is currently 16 years old and four times as old as her brother, who is 16/4 = 4 years old. Let's assume x represents the number of years from now when Mary will be twice as old as her brother. At that time, Mary will be 16 + x years old, and her brother will be 4 + x years old. The equation that represents the situation is 16 + x = 2(4 + x). Solving this equation, we find that x = 8. Therefore, Mary will be 16 + 8 = 24 years old when she is twice as old as her brother.

John needs 13 bottles of water from the store. John can only carry 3 at a time. What's the minimum number of trips John needs to make to the store?
Correct Answer
D. 5
Explanation
John can only carry 3 bottles of water at a time and he needs 13 bottles in total. To determine the minimum number of trips John needs to make to the store, we can divide the total number of bottles needed (13) by the number of bottles he can carry at once (3). This gives us 4 trips with 3 bottles each. However, there will still be one bottle left to carry, so John needs to make an additional trip. Therefore, the minimum number of trips John needs to make to the store is 5.

What is the missing number in the sequence shown below?
1 - 3 - 7 - 15 - ? - 63
Correct Answer
C. 31
Explanation
The sequence shown is an arithmetic sequence where each number is obtained by adding the previous number by a multiple of 2 and then subtracting 1. Starting with 1, we add 2 and subtract 1 to get 3, then add 4 and subtract 1 to get 7, and so on. Therefore, to find the missing number, we add 8 and subtract 1 from the previous number, which is 15, giving us 23. Hence, the missing number in the sequence is 23.

A candy maker makes two sizes of candies. Using the smaller size, a full jar will contain 120 pieces of candy. Using the larger candies a jar will contain 80 pieces of candy. The candy maker has a strict rule that no jars will contain a mix of small and large candies. If a store has room for 15 jars and they want 1560 total pieces of candy, how many jars will contain smaller candies?
Correct Answer
B. 9
Explanation
The candy maker makes two sizes of candies, with a full jar of smaller candies containing 120 pieces and a full jar of larger candies containing 80 pieces. The store wants a total of 1560 pieces of candy and has room for 15 jars. Since the candy maker has a strict rule that no jars will contain a mix of small and large candies, we need to find the number of jars that can only contain smaller candies. To do this, we divide the total number of pieces of candy by the number of pieces in a full jar of smaller candies: 1560 / 120 = 13. This means that there are 13 jars of smaller candies. However, since the store only has room for 15 jars, the maximum number of jars that can contain smaller candies is 13. Therefore, the correct answer is 9.
