SECTION 1 - MATHIf you were asked to load 225 boxes onto a truck, and the boxes are crated, with each crate containing nine boxes, how many crates would you need to load?

Imagine you live only one mile from work and decided to walk. If you walk four miles per hour, how many minutes will it take to walk one mile?

Add 8 minutes 32 seconds, 37 minutes 18 seconds, and 15 seconds.Enter your answer in the following format: MM:SS
Explanation The question asks to add 8 minutes 32 seconds, 37 minutes 18 seconds, and 15 seconds. To solve this, we add the minutes separately and the seconds separately. Adding the minutes, we get 45 minutes (8 + 37) and adding the seconds, we get 65 seconds (32 + 18 + 15). Since there are 60 seconds in a minute, we can convert the 65 seconds to 1 minute and 5 seconds. Therefore, the total time is 46 minutes and 5 seconds, which is represented as 46:05.
