    Explanation
    If you drive 20 miles to work every day, each way, it means you travel a total of 40 miles in a day. Since there are 5 working days in a week, you would travel 40 miles multiplied by 5, which equals 200 miles in a work week.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    If you spend fifteen minutes a day on a coffee break, how much time is this per work week?

    • A.

      1 And A Half Hour

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 Hour 15 Minutes
    Explanation
    If you spend fifteen minutes a day on a coffee break, and there are five workdays in a week, then the total time spent on coffee breaks per work week would be 15 minutes multiplied by 5, which equals 75 minutes. Since there are 60 minutes in an hour, this is equivalent to 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    Rate this question:

    If you buy a TV that costs $300, and the tax is 4 percent, what is the total price?

    • D.

      310

    Correct Answer
    B. 312
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 312. To calculate the total price, we need to add the cost of the TV and the tax. The tax is 4 percent of $300, which is $12. Adding $12 to the cost of the TV gives us a total price of $312.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Assuming sales tax is 6%, how much sales tax would you pay on a $500 purchase?

    • C.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    D. 30
    Explanation
    The sales tax on a $500 purchase can be calculated by multiplying the purchase amount by the sales tax rate. In this case, the sales tax rate is 6% or 0.06. So, 500 * 0.06 = $30. Therefore, the correct answer is 30.

    Correct Answer
    C. 62 Cups
    Explanation

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    You pay your lawyer 20%, and need 100,000 to repair your house so how much should you sue for?

    • A.

      150000

    • B.

      120000

    • C.

      100000

    • D.

      125000

    Correct Answer
    D. 125000
    Explanation
    If you need $100,000 to repair your house and you pay your lawyer 20%, you should sue for an amount that includes both the repair cost and the lawyer's fee. To calculate this, you need to divide the repair cost by (1 - lawyer's fee percentage). In this case, the lawyer's fee is 20%, so you divide $100,000 by (1 - 0.20), which is equal to $125,000. Therefore, you should sue for $125,000.

      500 Dollars

    • D.

      1000 Dollars

    Correct Answer
    C. 500 Dollars
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 500 dollars because if a five day vacation costs 2500 dollars, we can divide the total cost by the number of days to find the cost per day. 2500 divided by 5 equals 500 dollars per day.

      10

      4

    • C.

      8

    • D.

      5

    Correct Answer
    C. 8
    Explanation
    To find the number of $5.00 items that can be bought with $40.00, we divide the total amount by the cost of each item. In this case, $40.00 divided by $5.00 equals 8. Therefore, one can buy 8 $5.00 items with $40.00.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    If I pay you $10.00 to paint a 2' x 2' wall, how much should I pay you to paint a 4' x 4' wall?

    • A.

      20

    • B.

      80

    • C.

      40

    • D.

      15

    Correct Answer
    C. 40
    Explanation
    The cost of painting a wall is typically determined by the area to be painted. If you double the dimensions of the wall, you quadruple the area to be painted. The area of a 2' x 2' wall is 4 square feet (2 x 2 = 4), and the area of a 4' x 4' wall is 16 square feet (4 x 4 = 16).
    So, if you initially paid $10.00 to paint a 2' x 2' wall, you would adjust the payment based on the increase in area for the 4' x 4' wall. Since the area is four times larger, you might consider charging $10.00 x 4 = $40.00 to paint the 4' x 4' wall.

    Rate this question:

  • 15.

    The question states that the trip takes 3 hours and 10 minutes. If we add this to the departure time of 8:15 a.m., we get 11:25 a.m. as the arrival time.
