### Out of 2000 votes cast, if Max got 1000 and Kris got 800 votes, how many votes went to others?

• A.

800

• B.

200

• C.

20

• D.

1200

B. 200
Explanation
If Max got 1000 votes and Kris got 800 votes, then the total votes for Max and Kris combined is 1800. Since there were 2000 votes cast in total, the remaining votes that went to others can be calculated by subtracting the total votes for Max and Kris from the total number of votes cast: 2000 - 1800 = 200. Therefore, 200 votes went to others.

### If Phil works 50 weeks each year and earns \$900 per week, what is his annual salary?

• A.

D. 45000
Explanation
Phil works 50 weeks each year and earns \$900 per week. To find his annual salary, we can multiply the number of weeks he works by his weekly earnings. Therefore, 50 weeks multiplied by \$900 per week equals \$45,000, which is his annual salary.

### How many whole 3' long dogs can lie down head-to-tail in a 17' box?

• A.

5 Dogs

• B.

7 Dogs

• C.

6 Dogs

• D.

4 Dogs

A. 5 Dogs
Explanation
The length of the box is 17', and the length of each dog is 3'. To find out how many dogs can lie down head-to-tail in the box, we divide the length of the box by the length of each dog. In this case, 17 divided by 3 equals 5 dogs. Therefore, 5 dogs can lie down head-to-tail in the 17' box.

### If a half gallon of ice cream costs \$3.00, how much will two and a half gallons of ice cream cost?

• A.

15

• B.

12

• C.

30

• D.

9

A. 15
Explanation
If a half gallon of ice cream costs \$3.00, then the cost of one gallon of ice cream would be \$6.00 (since there are two half gallons in a gallon). Therefore, the cost of two and a half gallons of ice cream would be \$15.00 (2 x \$6.00 + \$3.00 = \$15.00).

Rate this question:

### How many foot long square tiles do you need to cover a floor that is 20 feet by 15 feet?

• A.

35

• B.

300

• C.

150

• D.

200

B. 300
Explanation
To cover a floor that is 20 feet by 15 feet, you need to calculate the total area of the floor. The area of a rectangle is found by multiplying its length by its width. In this case, the area of the floor is 20 feet multiplied by 15 feet, which equals 300 square feet. Since each square tile is one foot long, you would need 300 square tiles to cover the entire floor. Therefore, the correct answer is 300.

### How many dishes does Henry have if he breaks 5 plates and 3 cups in a 28 piece set?

• A.

20 Dishes

• B.

16 Dishes

• C.

18 Dishes

• D.

17 Dishes

A. 20 Dishes
Explanation
If Henry breaks 5 plates and 3 cups in a 28 piece set, we can subtract the number of broken items from the total number of items to find the number of remaining dishes. 28 - 5 - 3 = 20. Therefore, Henry has 20 dishes.

### If exercising for 1 hour burns 200 calories, how many calories would 15 minutes of exercise burn?

• A.

150

• B.

50

• C.

100

• D.

85

B. 50
Explanation
If exercising for 1 hour burns 200 calories, then we can calculate the number of calories burned in 15 minutes by dividing 200 by 4 (since there are 4 sets of 15 minutes in 1 hour). Therefore, 15 minutes of exercise would burn 50 calories.

2 Cups

• B.

1 And 1/2 Cup

• C.

1 And 1/4 Cup

• D.

1 And 3/4 Cups

B. 1 And 1/2 Cup
Explanation
When you double a recipe calling for 3/4 a cup of sugar, you need to multiply 3/4 by 2. Multiplying a fraction by a whole number is done by multiplying the numerator (top number) by the whole number. So, 3/4 multiplied by 2 is equal to 6/4 or 1 and 1/2 cup of sugar.

• A.

250 Calories

• B.

400 Calories

• C.

550 Calories

• D.

750 Calories

A. 250 Calories
Explanation
If you are on a diet of 2000 calories a day and you have already consumed 1750 calories, then the number of calories left would be the difference between the total calories and the calories consumed. Therefore, the number of calories left would be 2000 - 1750 = 250 calories.

### How many eggs would you use in a 2-egg cake if you want to double the recipe?

• A.

• B.

3 Eggs

• C.

4 Eggs

• D.

1 Egg

C. 4 Eggs
Explanation
To double the recipe for a 2-egg cake, you would need to use 4 eggs. This is because doubling the recipe means increasing all the ingredients by two, including the number of eggs. So, if the original recipe calls for 2 eggs, doubling it would require 4 eggs.

C. 2.5
Explanation
The cost per light bulb can be calculated by dividing the total cost of the four-pack by the number of light bulbs in the pack. In this case, the total cost is \$10 and there are 4 light bulbs in the pack. Therefore, the cost per light bulb is \$10 divided by 4, which equals \$2.5.
