In a grid of 80 squares, how many squares should be shaded for 25% of the grid to be shaded?
Correct Answer
A. 20
Explanation
To find the number of squares that should be shaded for 25% of the grid to be shaded, we need to calculate 25% of 80. To do this, we multiply 80 by 0.25, which gives us 20. Therefore, 20 squares should be shaded for 25% of the grid to be shaded.

If a recipe calls for 20 quarts of milk, how many two-gallon jugs of milk should I purchase?
Correct Answer
D. Three
Explanation
To find the number of two-gallon jugs of milk needed, we need to convert the 20 quarts of milk into gallons. Since there are 4 quarts in a gallon, 20 quarts is equal to 5 gallons. Each two-gallon jug can hold 2 gallons, so we divide 5 gallons by 2 gallons per jug. The result is 2.5, but since we can't purchase a fraction of a jug, we round up to the nearest whole number. Therefore, we need to purchase three two-gallon jugs of milk.

How much fencing would be needed to enclose a rectangular back yard that is 20 feet by 10 feet?
Correct Answer
C. 60 Feet
Explanation
To calculate the amount of fencing needed to enclose a rectangular backyard, we need to find the perimeter. The perimeter of a rectangle is calculated by adding the lengths of all four sides. In this case, the length is 20 feet and the width is 10 feet. So, the perimeter would be 2 times the length plus 2 times the width, which is (2 * 20) + (2 * 10) = 60 feet. Therefore, 60 feet of fencing would be needed to enclose the backyard.

If a runner starts a race at 11:15 and runs for 34 minutes, at what time does he finish?
Correct Answer
B. 11:49
Explanation
The runner starts the race at 11:15 and runs for 34 minutes, so we need to add 34 minutes to the starting time. Adding 30 minutes to 11:15 gives us 11:45, and adding an additional 4 minutes gives us 11:49. Therefore, the runner finishes the race at 11:49.

If you pay five cents per minute for long distance calls, how much will 90 minutes of calls cost?
Correct Answer
D. 4.5
Explanation
If you pay five cents per minute for long distance calls, the cost of 90 minutes of calls can be calculated by multiplying the cost per minute (5 cents) by the number of minutes (90). This can be done as follows: 5 cents/minute * 90 minutes = 450 cents. Since there are 100 cents in a dollar, the cost of 90 minutes of calls is $4.50. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.5.

If Liz wants to buy a car costing $8,000 and she must pay 20% down, how much is her down payment?
Correct Answer
D. 1600
Explanation
Liz wants to buy a car costing $8,000 and she must pay 20% down. To calculate the down payment, we need to find 20% of $8,000. 20% of $8,000 is equal to (20/100) * $8,000 = $1,600. Therefore, Liz's down payment is $1,600.

If Chris got 22, 26, and 24 points in his last three games, what is his average of points per game?
Correct Answer
B. 24
Explanation
Chris got 22, 26, and 24 points in his last three games. To find the average, we add up the points and divide by the number of games played. Adding 22, 26, and 24 gives us a total of 72. Since Chris played 3 games, we divide 72 by 3 to find the average. Therefore, his average points per game is 24.

If a recipe calls for 3/4 cup of flour but you are doubling it, how much flour do you need?
Correct Answer
A. 1 1/2 Cups
Explanation
If a recipe calls for 3/4 cup of flour and you are doubling it, you need to multiply 3/4 by 2. This can be done by multiplying the numerators (3) and the denominators (4) separately. Multiplying 3 by 2 gives 6, and multiplying 4 by 2 gives 8. Therefore, the amount of flour needed when doubling the recipe is 6/8 cup. Simplifying this fraction gives 3/4 cup, which is equal to 1 1/2 cups.
