A.
0
B.
3.3
C.
2.7
D.
None of these
Correct Answer C. 2.7
Explanation The given question is a subtraction problem. To find the answer, we subtract 0.3 from 3. This can be done by aligning the decimal points and subtracting each digit. Starting from the right, we subtract 0 from 3, which gives us 3. Then we subtract 0 from 0, which gives us 0. Finally, we subtract 3 from 3, which gives us 0. Therefore, the result of 3 - 0.3 is 2.7.

B.
8/9
C.
8/18
D.
1 1/3
E.
None of These
Correct Answer B. 8/9
Explanation When adding fractions, you need to have a common denominator. In this case, both fractions have a denominator of 9, so you can simply add the numerators together. 6 + 2 equals 8, so the numerator is 8. The denominator remains 9. Therefore, the sum of 6/9 and 2/9 is 8/9.

A.
3/9
B.
11/18
C.
3/18
D.
None of These
Correct Answer B. 11/18
Explanation To subtract fractions, we need to have a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 18. So, we rewrite 8/9 as 16/18. Now, we can subtract the two fractions: (16/18) - (5/18) = 11/18. Therefore, the correct answer is 11/18.

1086
B.
1104
C.
1114
D.
1044
E.
None of These
Correct Answer B. 1104
Explanation When multiplying 138 by 8, we can use the standard multiplication method. Multiply the ones digit of 138 (8) by 8, which gives us 64. Write down the 4 and carry over the 6 to the tens place. Multiply the tens digit of 138 (3) by 8, which gives us 24. Add the carried over 6, which gives us 30. Write down the 0 and carry over the 3 to the hundreds place. Multiply the hundreds digit of 138 (1) by 8, which gives us 8. Add the carried over 3, which gives us 11. Write down the 1 and carry over the 1 to the thousands place. Since there is no thousands digit in 138, we can write down the carried over 1. Therefore, the product of 138 and 8 is 1,104.

B.
19346
C.
2828
D.
21756
E.
19656
Correct Answer E. 19656
Explanation To find the product of two numbers, we multiply the digits in the ones place of both numbers, then the digits in the tens place, and so on. In this case, multiplying 4 (ones place of 234) by 4 (ones place of 84) gives us 16, which is written as the ones digit of the product. Then, multiplying 3 (tens place of 234) by 4 (ones place of 84) gives us 12, which is written as the tens digit of the product. Finally, multiplying 2 (hundreds place of 234) by 4 (ones place of 84) gives us 8, which is written as the hundreds digit of the product. Therefore, the correct answer is 19656.

A.
1/10
B.
9/10
C.
2 1/5
D.
2/5
E.
None of These
Correct Answer D. 2/5
Explanation When multiplying fractions, we multiply the numerators together and the denominators together. In this case, multiplying 3/5 by 2/3 gives us (3*2)/(5*3) = 6/15. However, we can simplify this fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 3. Simplifying 6/15 gives us 2/5. Therefore, the correct answer is 2/5.

3 5/6
B.
7/12
C.
5 5/6
D.
3 1/3
E.
None of These
Correct Answer C. 5 5/6
Explanation To find the product of 5/6 and 7, we multiply the numerators (5 and 7) and the denominators (6 and 1) separately. The result is 35/6. Since 35 is greater than 6, we can simplify the fraction by dividing 35 by 6, which gives us a quotient of 5 and a remainder of 5. Therefore, the final answer is 5 5/6.

A.
3/8
B.
1/2
C.
1 1/2
D.
2/3
E.
None of These
Correct Answer C. 1 1/2
Explanation To divide fractions, we need to multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. In this case, we have (3/4) ÷ (1/2), which is the same as (3/4) * (2/1). Multiplying the numerators gives us 6, and multiplying the denominators gives us 4. So the result is 6/4, which simplifies to 3/2 or 1 1/2.
Rate this question:

2/35
B.
1/17
C.
1 3/7
D.

E.
None of These
Correct Answer A. 2/35
Explanation To divide a fraction by a whole number, we can multiply the fraction by the reciprocal of the whole number. In this case, we have 2/7 divided by 5. The reciprocal of 5 is 1/5. So, we can rewrite the expression as 2/7 multiplied by 1/5. Multiplying the numerators (2 x 1) gives us 2, and multiplying the denominators (7 x 5) gives us 35. Therefore, the answer is 2/35.

225.0
C.
90.0
D.

E.
None of These
Correct Answer C. 90.0
Explanation To find 50% of a number, we divide the number by 2. So, if 50% of a number equals 45, we can set up the equation: x/2 = 45. Solving for x, we multiply both sides of the equation by 2, giving us x = 90. Therefore, the correct answer is 90.0.

A.
76
B.
13
C.
760
D.
130
E.
None of These
Correct Answer D. 130
Explanation The correct answer is 130. To find 70% of a number, we multiply the number by 0.7. In this case, if 70% of a number equals 91, we can set up the equation 0.7x = 91, where x is the unknown number. Solving for x, we divide both sides of the equation by 0.7, giving us x = 130. Therefore, 130 is the number that represents 70% of the unknown number.

Which of the following equation is an example of the associative property?
A.
8+(2×3)=(8×2)+(8×3)
B.
8+2=2+8
C.
8+(2+3)=(8+2)+3
D.
8+(2+3)=(8+2)×3
Correct Answer C. 8+(2+3)=(8+2)+3
Explanation The equation 8+(2+3)=(8+2)+3 is an example of the associative property because it shows that the grouping of the numbers does not affect the result of the addition. Both sides of the equation simplify to 13, demonstrating that the order in which the numbers are grouped does not change the sum.

Which of the following equation is an example of the distributive property?
A.
8×(2×3)=(8×2)+(8×3)
B.
8+(2×3)=(8×2)+(8×3)
C.
8×(2+3)=(8×2)+(8×3)
D.
8+(2+3)=(8+2)×3
Correct Answer C. 8×(2+3)=(8×2)+(8×3)
Explanation The equation 8×(2+3)=(8×2)+(8×3) is an example of the distributive property because it shows the multiplication of a number (8) by the sum of two other numbers (2 and 3), which is then equal to the sum of the products of the number (8) multiplied by each of the two other numbers (2 and 3). This demonstrates the distributive property, which states that multiplication can be distributed over addition.

Bob walks around a block. The block is 200 feet wide and 1,000 feet long. How many feet did he walk?
A.
1,200
B.
2,400
C.
200,000
D.
4,000,000,000
Correct Answer B. 2,400
Explanation Bob walks around a rectangular block, which has a width of 200 feet and a length of 1,000 feet. To calculate the total distance he walks, we need to find the perimeter of the block. The perimeter of a rectangle is calculated by adding the lengths of all its sides. In this case, we have two sides with a length of 200 feet each and two sides with a length of 1,000 feet each. Adding these lengths together, we get 200 + 200 + 1,000 + 1,000 = 2,400. Therefore, Bob walked a total of 2,400 feet.

What is 23,045 rounded to the nearest tens?
A.
23,000
B.
23,040
C.
23,050
D.
23,100
Correct Answer C. 23,050
Explanation 23,045 rounded to the nearest tens would be 23,050. When rounding to the nearest tens, we look at the digit in the ones place. If it is 5 or greater, we round up by adding 10 to the number. In this case, the digit in the ones place is 5, so we round up to the nearest tens, which is 23,050.

Jessica wants to paint her kitchen ceiling. The ceiling measures 8ft. by 9ft. minus a vent that is about 1 square foot. What is a good estimate of the paintable ceiling area?
A.
Less than 70ft²
B.
Greater than 70ft² , less that 72ft²
C.
Greater than 72ft² , but less that 74ft²
D.
Greater than 74ft²
Correct Answer B. Greater than 70ft² , less that 72ft²
Explanation The question states that the kitchen ceiling measures 8ft. by 9ft., but there is a vent that takes up about 1 square foot. Therefore, the paintable ceiling area would be slightly less than the total area of the ceiling. Since the vent is only about 1 square foot, the paintable ceiling area would be slightly less than 72ft². Therefore, the good estimate for the paintable ceiling area would be greater than 70ft² but less than 72ft².

Mike runs about 3 miles roundtrip. He runs 4 times each week. What is the best estimate of how many miles he runs in a month?
A.
12 miles
B.
120 miles
C.
28 miles
D.
48 miles
Correct Answer D. 48 miles
Explanation Mike runs 3 miles roundtrip, 4 times each week. To find the best estimate of how many miles he runs in a month, we need to multiply the number of miles he runs each week by the number of weeks in a month. Since there are approximately 4 weeks in a month, we can calculate 3 miles x 4 times per week x 4 weeks per month = 48 miles. Therefore, the best estimate of how many miles Mike runs in a month is 48 miles.
