### A motorist drove at speed of 55 miles per hour for five hours before stopping for a rest. After resting, the motorist drove at a speed of 65 miles per hour for six additional hours. What was the average miles per hour driven by the motorist?

• A.

59.75 mph

• B.

60 mph

• C.

66.5 mph

• D.

60.5 mph

D. 60.5 mph
Explanation
The average miles per hour driven by the motorist can be calculated by finding the total distance traveled and dividing it by the total time taken. The motorist drove at a speed of 55 mph for 5 hours, covering a distance of 55 * 5 = 275 miles. Then, the motorist drove at a speed of 65 mph for 6 hours, covering a distance of 65 * 6 = 390 miles. The total distance traveled is 275 + 390 = 665 miles. The total time taken is 5 + 6 = 11 hours. Therefore, the average miles per hour driven by the motorist is 665 / 11 = 60.5 mph.

### What is the simple interest on \$750 at 15% for 26 month?

• A.

\$158.75

• B.

\$4.33

• C.

\$1,300

• D.

\$244.13

D. \$244.13
Explanation
The simple interest can be calculated using the formula: Interest = (Principal * Rate * Time) / 100. In this case, the principal is \$750, the rate is 15%, and the time is 26 months. Plugging these values into the formula, we get: (750 * 15 * 26) / 100 = \$2,925. Dividing this by 12 to get the monthly interest, we get approximately \$244.13.

### What percent of 15 is 8?

• A.

53%

• B.

120%

• C.

7%

• D.

23%

A. 53%
Explanation
To find what percent 8 is of 15, we can set up a proportion. Let x represent the unknown percentage. So, 8 is to 15 as x is to 100. This can be written as 8/15 = x/100. Cross multiplying, we get 15x = 800. Dividing both sides by 15, we find that x = 53.33. Therefore, 8 is approximately 53.33% of 15. Since 53% is the closest option, it is the correct answer.

### A train is traveling at 86 miles per hour. How long does it take the train to reach a city 400 miles away?

• A.

4 hours 42 minutes

• B.

6 hours

• C.

5 hours 4 minutes

• D.

8 hours

A. 4 hours 42 minutes
Explanation
The train is traveling at a speed of 86 miles per hour. To find the time it takes to reach a city 400 miles away, we divide the distance by the speed. 400 miles divided by 86 miles per hour equals approximately 4.65 hours. Converting this to minutes, we get 4 hours and 42 minutes, which is the correct answer.

### Your monthly grocery bill increases from \$157.65 to \$298.60 when your son comes home from college. the percentage of increase is

• A.

47.2%

• B.

141%

• C.

89.4%

• D.

57.7%

C. 89.4%
Explanation
When the son comes home from college, the monthly grocery bill increases from \$157.65 to \$298.60. To find the percentage increase, we can use the formula: (New Value - Old Value) / Old Value * 100. Plugging in the values, we get (298.60 - 157.65) / 157.65 * 100 = 89.4%. Therefore, the correct answer is 89.4%.

### Study the following table and answer the questions. Classification of 100 Students Based on the Marks Obtained by them in Physics and Chemistry in an Examination. If at least 60% marks in Physics are required for pursuing higher studies in Physics, how many students will be eligible to pursue higher studies in Physics?

• A.

27

• B.

32

• C.

34

• D.

41

B. 32
Explanation
Based on the given table, we can see that there are 100 students in total. To determine the number of students eligible to pursue higher studies in Physics, we need to find the number of students who scored at least 60% marks in Physics. By looking at the "Physics" column, we can see that there are 41 students who scored 60% or higher in Physics. Therefore, the correct answer is 41.

### 58% of 17 yards = When 1 yard = 3 feet    and  1 feet = 12 inches

• A.

29 inches

• B.

110 inches

• C.

118.32 inches

• D.

355 inches

D. 355 inches
Explanation
The correct answer is 355 inches. To find the number of inches in 17 yards, we first need to convert yards to feet. Since 1 yard is equal to 3 feet, we multiply 17 yards by 3 to get 51 feet. Next, we convert feet to inches. Since 1 foot is equal to 12 inches, we multiply 51 feet by 12 to get 612 inches. Therefore, 58% of 17 yards is equal to 612 inches.

### A map has a scale of 1inch = 75 miles. Donnerville and Wright's Point are   inches apart.  What is the distance in miles between the two locations?

• A.

370.40 miles

• B.

355.35 miles

• C.

450.07 miles

• D.

431.25 miles

D. 431.25 miles
Explanation
The scale of the map is given as 1 inch = 75 miles. This means that for every inch on the map, the actual distance is 75 miles. The question states that Donnerville and Wright's Point are a certain number of inches apart on the map. To find the actual distance in miles between the two locations, we need to multiply the number of inches by the scale factor of 75 miles per inch. Therefore, the distance in miles between Donnerville and Wright's Point is 431.25 miles.

### A nurse is gauze to dress 3 wounds. He has a length of gauze 5 feet long that needs to be cut into three pieces with two of the three pieces 2 inches longer than the remaining piece. Determine the lengths of the three pieces.

• A.

1 length = 10 inches; 2 lengths = 25 inches each

• B.

1 length = 18.7 inches; 2 lengths = 20.7 inches each

• C.

1 length = 20.0 inches; 2 lengths = 22.0 inches each

• D.

1 length = 26 inches; 2 lengths = 28 inches each

B. 1 length = 18.7 inches; 2 lengths = 20.7 inches each
Explanation
The nurse needs to cut the 5-foot long gauze into three pieces. Two of the pieces need to be 2 inches longer than the remaining piece. Since there are three pieces in total, the nurse can divide the length of the gauze into three equal parts. Therefore, each piece would be 5 feet divided by 3, which is approximately 18.7 inches. The two longer pieces would be 2 inches longer than this, so they would be approximately 20.7 inches each.
