### Solve the expression below. 4*2 + 3(6-2) + 81

• A.

100

• B.

101

• C.

104

• D.

96

B. 101
Explanation
The expression can be solved by following the order of operations (PEMDAS/BODMAS). First, we simplify the expression inside the parentheses: 6-2 = 4. Then, we multiply 3 by 4, which equals 12. Next, we multiply 4 by 2, which equals 8. Finally, we add 8, 12, and 81, which equals 101. Therefore, the correct answer is 101.

### X = 10 apples y = 5 oranges Using the data below, figure out how many oranges and apples were picked by Kevin and Jenny combined. Kevin picked x x x x x apples and y y y y oranges. Jenny picked x x x apples and y oranges.

• A.

80 apples and 25 oranges

• B.

50 apples and 20 oranges

30 apples and 5 oranges

• D.

None of the above.

A. 80 apples and 25 oranges
Explanation
Based on the given data, Kevin picked x apples and y oranges. Jenny picked x apples and y oranges. To figure out the total number of apples and oranges picked by Kevin and Jenny combined, we can substitute the values of x and y with the given numbers. The number of apples picked by Kevin is 10, and the number of oranges picked by Kevin is 5. The number of apples picked by Jenny is 10, and the number of oranges picked by Jenny is 5. Adding these numbers together, we get a total of 80 apples and 25 oranges.

### The Least Common Multiple of two numbers is the smallest number (not including zero) that is a multiple of both. What this the LCM of 3 and 4?

• A.

0

• B.

12

• C.

21

• D.

24

B. 12
Explanation
The LCM of two numbers is the smallest number that is divisible by both numbers without leaving a remainder. In this case, the LCM of 3 and 4 is 12 because it is the smallest number that is divisible by both 3 and 4.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### The Greatest Common factor is the greatest factor that divides two numbers. What is the greatest common factor of 18 and 36?

• A.

2

• B.

6

• C.

9

• D.

18

D. 18
Explanation
The greatest common factor of 18 and 36 is 18 because it is the largest number that can evenly divide both 18 and 36.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Kevin walks home from school and it takes him an average of 1/2 hour per mile. What is a reasonable amount of time for him to walk to the movies which are 6.0 miles away?

• A.

2 hours

• B.

3 hours

• C.

3.5 hours

• D.

4.0 hours

B. 3 hours
Explanation
Kevin walks at an average pace of 1/2 hour per mile. To find the total time it would take him to walk 6 miles, we multiply the average time per mile (1/2 hour) by the distance (6 miles). 1/2 hour per mile multiplied by 6 miles equals 3 hours. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that it would take Kevin 3 hours to walk to the movies which are 6 miles away.

### There are 9 classes of students with 37 students in each class along with 1 teacher for each class. Which of the following operations would you do to find out how many students and teachers were in the gym?

• A.

(9*37) + 1

• B.

(9*37) + 37

• C.

(9*37) + 9(1)

• D.

(9*9) + 37

C. (9*37) + 9(1)
Explanation
To find out how many students and teachers were in the gym, we need to calculate the total number of students and teachers in all 9 classes. Since there are 37 students in each class, multiplying 37 by 9 gives us the total number of students. Additionally, there is 1 teacher for each class, so multiplying 9 by 1 gives us the total number of teachers. Adding these two values together gives us the total number of students and teachers in the gym. Therefore, the correct operation to use is (9*37) + 9(1).

### Order the following four numbers in order from greatest to smallest. 1/2 0.55 56% 0.15

• A.

1/2> 0.55> 56%> 0.15

• B.

0.15< 1/2< 0.55< 56%

• C.

56%> 0.55> 1/2> 0.15

• D.

None of the above.

C. 56%> 0.55> 1/2> 0.15
Explanation
The correct order from greatest to smallest is 56% > 0.55 > 1/2 > 0.15. This is because 56% is the largest percentage, followed by 0.55 which is a decimal number, then 1/2 which is a fraction, and finally 0.15 which is the smallest decimal number.

7 bags

C. 6 bags
Explanation
John needs 1.5 cups of flour for each pie and he is making 40 pies. Therefore, he will need a total of 1.5 x 40 = 60 cups of flour. Since there are 10 cups of flour in each bag, John will need 60/10 = 6 bags of flour to make the 40 pies.
