Explanation
The question states that on Tuesday, 12 inches of snow fell. On Wednesday, another 8 inches fell, and on Thursday, another 4 inches fell. To find the total amount of snow on the ground, we add the three amounts: 12 + 8 + 4 = 24 inches. Therefore, the correct answer is 24 inches.

### A wildfire is burning many acres of forest. On Tuesday, the fire burned 1,200 acres and on Wednesday another 1,593 acres burned. How many acres have burned so far?

• A.

2,973 acres

• B.

1,359 acres

• C.

2,793 acres

• D.

3933 acres

C. 2,793 acres
Explanation
The question asks for the total number of acres that have burned so far in the wildfire. On Tuesday, 1,200 acres burned, and on Wednesday, another 1,593 acres burned. To find the total, we add these two numbers together: 1,200 + 1,593 = 2,793 acres. Therefore, the correct answer is 2,793 acres.

### On Thursday, another 973 acres burned and on Friday another 72 acres burned. On Saturday, the fire was contained. How many total acres burned?

8,383 acres

• B.

2,962 acres

• C.

3,838 acres

• D.

3,694 acres

C. 3,838 acres
Explanation
The total number of acres burned can be calculated by adding the acres burned on each day. On Thursday, 973 acres burned, and on Friday, another 72 acres burned. Adding these two numbers together gives a total of 1,045 acres burned. However, the question states that the fire was contained on Saturday, so no additional acres burned on that day. Therefore, the total number of acres burned is 1,045 acres. However, this answer is not one of the options given, so the correct answer is not available.

B. 537 firefighters
Explanation
On Tuesday, there were 356 firefighters. On Wednesday, an additional 89 joined, and on Thursday, another 92 joined. To find the total number of firefighters, we add the number of firefighters on each day: 356 + 89 + 92 = 537 firefighters.
