### One bag of grapes weighs 3/4 kg and another bag of grapes weighs 1/2 kg. What is the total weight of the grapes?

• A.

1 1/3 kg

• B.

1 1/4 kg

• C.

4/5 kg

• D.

4/6 kg

B. 1 1/4 kg
Explanation
The total weight of the grapes can be found by adding the weight of the two bags together. The weight of the first bag is 3/4 kg and the weight of the second bag is 1/2 kg. To add these fractions, we need to find a common denominator, which is 4. So, the weight of the first bag can be written as 3/4 kg = 3/4 * 4/4 = 12/16 kg. The weight of the second bag can be written as 1/2 kg = 1/2 * 8/8 = 8/16 kg. Adding these fractions together, we get 12/16 + 8/16 = 20/16 kg. Simplifying this fraction, we get 1 1/4 kg. Therefore, the total weight of the grapes is 1 1/4 kg.

Rate this question:

• 23.

• A.

1/2

• B.

3/10

• C.

1/4

• D.

3/15

A. 1/2
Explanation
To add fractions, we need to find a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 10. We then convert 1/10 to have a denominator of 10 by multiplying the numerator and denominator by 5. This gives us 5/50. We convert 2/5 to have a denominator of 10 by multiplying the numerator and denominator by 2. This gives us 4/10. Now that both fractions have a common denominator, we can add them together. 5/50 + 4/10 equals 9/50. However, we can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 5, which gives us 1/10. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/10.

Rate this question:

• 24.

### What is 3/4 – 1/8 ?

• A.

1/16

• B.

1/4

• C.

1/2

• D.

5/8

D. 5/8
Explanation
To find the difference between two fractions, we need to have a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 8. So, we rewrite 3/4 as 6/8. Now, we can subtract 1/8 from 6/8, which gives us 5/8. Therefore, the correct answer is 5/8.

• D.

0.81

A. 0.125
Explanation
To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator (1) by the denominator (8). In this case, 1 divided by 8 equals 0.125. Therefore, 1/8 as a decimal fraction is 0.125.

Rate this question:

A. 175 cm
Explanation
The given question states that a man is 1.75 meters tall. This measurement can be written as 175 cm because there are 100 centimeters in a meter. It cannot be written as 175 mm because there are 1000 millimeters in a meter. Additionally, it cannot be written as 1.75 kg or 1.75 km because these units are used to measure weight and distance respectively, not height. Therefore, the correct answer is 175 cm.
