### In New York, two out of every five people surveyed bicycle to work.  Out of a population sample of 200,000 people, how many bicycles to work?

4,000

40,000

• D.

80,000

D. 80,000
Explanation
Based on the given information, two out of every five people surveyed bicycle to work in New York. Therefore, if we assume that the population sample of 200,000 people is representative of the entire population, we can calculate the number of people who bicycle to work by multiplying 200,000 by the fraction of people who bicycle, which is 2/5. This calculation gives us 80,000 people who bicycle to work.

B. 1

### The height of the Eiffel Tower is 986 feet.  A replica of the tower made to scale is 4 inches tall.  What is the scale of the replica to the real tower?

1 to 246.5

• B.

1 to 3,944

• C.

246.5 to 1

• D.

1 to 2,958

D. 1 to 2,958
Explanation
The scale of the replica to the real tower is 1 to 2,958. This means that for every 1 unit of height on the replica, the real tower is 2,958 units tall. In this case, the replica is 4 inches tall, so the real tower would be 4 inches multiplied by 2,958, which equals 11,832 inches or 986 feet.

Finally, we subtract 20 from 27, resulting in 7.
