Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Katie has a bag of 43 cookies. She and her 14 friends want cookies.  Does Katie have enough so that everyone can have 3 cookies?  Yes or No 

    Correct Answer
    No
    Explanation
    Since Katie has 43 cookies and there are 14 friends, the total number of people who want cookies is 14 + 1 (Katie) = 15. If each person wants 3 cookies, the total number of cookies needed would be 15 x 3 = 45. Since Katie only has 43 cookies, she does not have enough for everyone to have 3 cookies. Therefore, the answer is "No".

    Explanation
    Mrs. Glenn wants to have 4 stickers for each student. Since there are 17 students in her class, she needs to buy 4 stickers for each student. Therefore, the total number of stickers she should buy is 17 multiplied by 4, which equals 68.

    Ella wants to buy pizza for her friends.  Each piece of pizza costs $3.00.  Ella has $18.00.  How many slices can she buy? 

    Correct Answer
    6
    Explanation
    Ella wants to buy pizza for her friends and each piece of pizza costs $3.00. Ella has $18.00. To find out how many slices she can buy, we divide the total amount of money she has by the cost of each slice. $18.00 divided by $3.00 equals 6. Therefore, Ella can buy 6 slices of pizza for her friends.

    Frances has already driven a total of 456.3 + 389.7 + 318.6 = 1164.6 miles. To reach her sister's home, which is 1400 miles away, she still needs to drive 1400 - 1164.6 = 235.4 miles. Therefore, the correct answer is 235.4 mi.

    How much will you be charged for buying 0.85 yard of fabric, if the fabric costs $7.86? 

    • A.

      $7.71

    • B.

      $7.01

    • D.

      $0.67

    Correct Answer
    C. $6.68
    Explanation
    To find the cost of buying 0.85 yards of fabric, we need to multiply the cost per yard ($7.86) by the number of yards (0.85). This can be calculated as 7.86 * 0.85 = $6.678. Rounding this to two decimal places gives us $6.68, which is the correct answer.
