On Monday and Thursday, lunch cost $5.43 total. On Tuesday and Wednesday, lunch costs $3.54 each day. On Friday, lunch cost $7.89. What was the average daily cost?
Correct Answer
D. 4.08
Explanation
The average daily cost can be calculated by adding up the total cost of lunch for each day and dividing it by the number of days. On Monday and Thursday, the total cost is $5.43. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the total cost is $3.54 each day, so the total for both days is $7.08. On Friday, the cost is $7.89. Adding up all the costs, we get $5.43 + $7.08 + $7.89 = $20.40. Since there are 5 days in total, the average daily cost is $20.40 divided by 5, which equals $4.08.

. What is 1230.932567 rounded to the nearest hundredth place?
Correct Answer
C. 1230.930
Explanation
The number 1230.932567 rounded to the nearest hundredth place is 1230.930. This is because when rounding to the nearest hundredth, we look at the digit in the thousandth place (3 in this case). Since 3 is less than 5, we do not round up. Therefore, the digit in the hundredth place remains the same (0), and all digits to the right of the hundredth place are truncated. Hence, the rounded number is 1230.930.

Subtract the following numbers rounded to the nearest tenth place.
134.679 45.548 67.8807
Correct Answer
A. 21.30
Explanation
To subtract the numbers rounded to the nearest tenth place, we need to round each number to the nearest tenth and then subtract them. Rounding 134.679 to the nearest tenth gives us 134.7, rounding 45.548 gives us 45.5, and rounding 67.8807 gives us 67.9. Subtracting these rounded numbers, 134.7 - 45.5 - 67.9, we get 21.3.

There are 12 more apples than oranges in a basket of 36 apples and oranges. How many apples are in the basket?
Correct Answer
C. 24
Explanation
Let's assume the number of oranges in the basket is x. Since there are 12 more apples than oranges, the number of apples would be x + 12. The total number of fruits in the basket is given as 36. So, we can write the equation as x + (x + 12) = 36. Simplifying this equation gives us 2x + 12 = 36. Subtracting 12 from both sides gives us 2x = 24. Dividing both sides by 2 gives us x = 12. Therefore, the number of apples in the basket is x + 12, which is 12 + 12 = 24.
