Alfonzo works as a catering delivery driver. He has to make a delivery that is 30 miles away. If he averages 50 miles per hour, how long will it take him to arrive at his destination?
A.
36 min
B.
80 min
C.
1 hr 20 min
D.
20 hr
Correct Answer A. 36 min
Explanation To find the time it will take Alfonzo to arrive at his destination, we can use the formula: time = distance / speed. In this case, the distance is 30 miles and the speed is 50 miles per hour. Therefore, the time it will take him to arrive at his destination is 30 miles / 50 miles per hour = 0.6 hours. To convert this to minutes, we multiply by 60, giving us 0.6 hours * 60 minutes per hour = 36 minutes. Therefore, it will take Alfonzo 36 minutes to arrive at his destination.

As a maintenance worker for a hardware store, you need to measure the distance around the inside of the store because you want to install new cove base ( a rubber product that protects the base of the wall from damage). If the building is a sqaure, and one wall measures 45 feet, how much cove base (in feet) will you need to order?
A.
45 ft
B.
90 ft
C.
180 ft
D.
2,025 ft
Correct Answer C. 180 ft
Explanation To calculate the distance around the inside of the store, we need to find the perimeter of the square building. Since one wall measures 45 feet, and a square has all sides equal, all the walls of the building will also be 45 feet. To find the perimeter, we add up all the sides of the square, which would be 45 ft + 45 ft + 45 ft + 45 ft = 180 ft. Therefore, you will need to order 180 ft of cove base.

At a warehouse the mean pay rate for all workers is $10.50 per hour. If your pay rate at the warehouse is $11.80 per hour, what can you conclude about the pay rates of the other workers?
A.
At least one of the other workers earns $10.50 per hour.
B.
At least one of the other workers earns less than $10.50 per hour.
C.
At least one of the other workers earns more than $10.50 per hour.
D.
Every worker works at a unique pay rate.
Correct Answer B. At least one of the other workers earns less than $10.50 per hour.
Explanation Since the mean pay rate for all workers is $10.50 per hour and your pay rate is $11.80 per hour, it can be concluded that at least one of the other workers earns less than $10.50 per hour. This is because the mean is the average of all the pay rates, so if your pay rate is higher than the mean, there must be others with lower pay rates to balance it out.

D.
The lot will lose 4 to 8 customers.
Correct Answer A. The lot will lose about 1/3 of its daily customers.
Explanation Based on the survey results, 30% of respondents said they would park at the lot about half as often, and 20% said they would switch to a less expensive lot. This means that a total of 50% of respondents indicated that they would either park less often or switch to a different lot. Since the question is asking for the most likely effect of the new rate, it can be inferred that the lot will lose about 1/3 (or approximately 33%) of its daily customers.

D.
$467.64
Correct Answer D. $467.64
Explanation Carlos wants to purchase 36 boxes of pens that are on sale for $12.99 per box. To find the total cost, we need to multiply the number of boxes (36) by the price per box ($12.99). Therefore, the pens will cost $467.64.

For every sale that Bernard makes, he earns a $20 commission. In order to be considered as the Employee of the Month, he must make at least $1,200 in commission that month. If in the first two weeks he earns $580 in commission, how many sales does he need to make the rest of the month in order to be considered Employee of the Month?
A.
89
B.
60
C.
31
D.

Correct Answer C. 31
Explanation If Bernard has already earned $580 in commission in the first two weeks, he needs to earn an additional $1,200 - $580 = $620 in commission for the rest of the month. Since he earns a $20 commission for every sale, he needs to make $620 / $20 = 31 sales in order to reach the required commission amount and be considered Employee of the Month.

New laws require restaurants to provide nutritional facts to their customers. As a manager, you need to figure out this information so that you can post it on your menu. A certain cheeseburger has 560 calories. Of that total, 210 calories come from fat. What percent of the calories are NOT from fat?
A.
3.75%
B.
6.25%
C.
37.5%
D.
62.5%
Correct Answer D. 62.5%
Explanation The percentage of calories that are not from fat can be calculated by subtracting the calories from fat (210) from the total calories (560) and then dividing the result by the total calories and multiplying by 100. In this case, the calculation would be (560 - 210) / 560 * 100 = 350 / 560 * 100 = 0.625 * 100 = 62.5%. Therefore, 62.5% of the calories in the cheeseburger are not from fat.

The company you work for has $5,000 set aside for holiday bonuses. It is your job to figure out how much each employee gets. Your boss asks you to split the money evenly among all employees after subtracting $250 from the total to cover the cost of the holiday party. If there are 10 employees, hoe mich will each employee receive?
A.
$525
B.
$475
C.
$500
D.
$250
Correct Answer B. $475
Explanation After subtracting $250 from the total amount of $5,000 to cover the cost of the holiday party, we are left with $4,750. To split this amount evenly among the 10 employees, we divide $4,750 by 10. This gives us $475, which means each employee will receive $475 as their holiday bonus.

C.
61.5%
D.
260%
Correct Answer B. 38.5%
Explanation The correct answer is 38.5%. To find the percent of total sales from candles and gift cards, we need to add up the sales amounts for candles and gift cards and divide it by the total sales amount. The sales amount for candles is $298 and the sales amount for gift cards is $395. Adding these two amounts gives us a total of $693. Dividing $693 by the total sales amount of $1800 gives us approximately 0.385, which is equivalent to 38.5% when expressed as a percentage.

Which of the following measurements is appropriate weight for a single brick patio paver?
A.
5 oz
B.
5 lb
C.
5 t
D.

Correct Answer B. 5 lb
Explanation The correct answer is 5 lb. This is the appropriate weight for a single brick patio paver because it is a common unit of measurement for weighing objects. The weight of a brick paver is typically measured in pounds, as it is a more practical and manageable unit for this type of object. 5 oz would be too light, 5 t (tons) would be too heavy, and 5 gal (gallons) is a unit of volume, not weight.

You are an assistant to the manager of a retail store. He wants to figure out what percent of the total sales on a given day were made in the lawn and garden department. The lawn and garden department sales were $1500. The total sales for the retail store were $10,000. What percent of the total sales came from from the lawn and garden department?
A.
0.15%
B.
1.5%
C.
15%
D.

Correct Answer C. 15%
Explanation To find the percent of total sales made in the lawn and garden department, we divide the lawn and garden department sales ($1500) by the total sales for the retail store ($10,000) and then multiply by 100. This gives us (1500/10000) * 100 = 15%. Therefore, 15% of the total sales came from the lawn and garden department.

You are collecting money from vending machines on your route. You collected $176.50 and $122.75 from your first two stops. At the third stop, you collected $158.00 and the customer ordered $125.00 more in product. Which of the following dollar amounts should not be used in finding the total collected for the day?
A.
$122.75
B.
$125.00
C.
$158.00
D.
$176.50
Correct Answer B. $125.00
Explanation The dollar amount that should not be used in finding the total collected for the day is $125.00. This is because the customer ordered $125.00 more in product at the third stop, but this amount is not part of the total collected for the day. The total collected for the day should only include the initial amount collected from the first two stops ($176.50) and the amount collected at the third stop ($158.00).

You are in a factory that assembles office chairs. Each line can assemble 100 chairs per shift. What additional information do you need to determine the number of chairs assembled per shift at the factory?
A.
The number of lines at the factory
B.
The speed of each worker on the line
C.
The number of chairs ordered
D.
The number of workers on the line
Correct Answer A. The number of lines at the factory
Explanation To determine the number of chairs assembled per shift at the factory, we need to know the number of lines at the factory. Each line can assemble 100 chairs per shift, so the total number of chairs assembled per shift would depend on the number of lines. Without knowing the number of lines, we cannot accurately determine the total number of chairs assembled. The other options provided (the speed of each worker on the line, the number of chairs ordered, and the number of workers on the line) may be relevant for other calculations, but they do not directly determine the number of chairs assembled per shift.

You are on a business trip attending a convention to demonstrate your compnay's products. Your budget for travel expenses is $450.00. So far, you have spent $126.60 on gasoline, $226.37 on meals for clients, and $65.00 for one night in a hotel. How much money do you have left to spend?
A.
$32.03
B.
$97.03
C.
$417.97
D.
$867.97
Correct Answer A. $32.03
Explanation To find out how much money is left to spend, we need to subtract the total amount spent from the budget. The total amount spent is $126.60 + $226.37 + $65.00 = $417.97. Therefore, the amount of money left to spend is $450.00 - $417.97 = $32.03.

You are painting four sides of a building that are all the same size. Before you buy the paint for the job, what additional information is needed in order to determine how much paint to buy?
A.
The amount of time it will take to finish
B.
The total square of wall that needs to be painted
C.
The number of painters that will be helping you
D.
The volume of the building
Correct Answer B. The total square of wall that needs to be painted
Explanation To determine how much paint to buy, the additional information needed is the total square footage of the wall that needs to be painted. This is because the amount of paint required is directly proportional to the surface area to be covered. Without knowing the size of the wall, it is impossible to accurately estimate the amount of paint needed. The other options, such as the amount of time it will take, the number of painters, or the volume of the building, are not directly relevant to determining the quantity of paint required.

You are working on an aseembly line in an auto plant earning $18 per hour. If you work over 40 hours per week, you earn 1 1/2 times your normal hourly wage for each hour. What are your earnings for a week in which you worked 45 hours?
A.
$720.00
B.
$726.50
C.
$811.50
D.
$855.00
Correct Answer D. $855.00
Explanation If the person works 45 hours in a week, they will earn their normal hourly wage of $18 for the first 40 hours. For the additional 5 hours, they will earn 1 1/2 times their normal hourly wage, which is $27 per hour. So, for the 5 extra hours, they will earn a total of $27 x 5 = $135. Adding this to their earnings for the first 40 hours, their total earnings for the week will be $18 x 40 + $135 = $720 + $135 = $855.00.

Correct Answer C. Of the 20 responses, 3 were from the same customer.
Explanation If it is true that 3 of the 20 responses were from the same customer, it would decrease the reliability of the data. This is because having multiple responses from the same customer could skew the results and make it appear as if there are more customers who would park less often or switch to a less expensive lot than there actually are. It would not provide an accurate representation of the overall customer sentiment towards the fee increase.

You need to use 0.25 cup of olive oil for each batch of vinaigrette dressing that you prepare in your job as a prep cook. The chef asks you to increase the amount of dressing you prepare each day so that you are making 10 batches of dressing. If your supplier sells olive oil by the gallon, how many gallons of oil will you need to tell the chef to order for one week?
A.
280 gal
B.
0.1 gal
C.
1 gal
D.
2 gal
Correct Answer D. 2 gal
Explanation To prepare 10 batches of dressing, each requiring 0.25 cups of olive oil, we need a total of 10 x 0.25 = 2.5 cups of olive oil. Since there are 16 cups in a gallon, we need 2.5 / 16 = 0.15625 gallons of olive oil. Rounding up, we get approximately 0.16 gallons. Therefore, the chef needs to order 0.16 gallons of olive oil for one week. The closest option to this is 0.1 gal, so the correct answer is 0.1 gal.

You pay a cleaning- supply vendor in cash to receive a discount. The bill, after your discount is applied, comes to $123.76. You give the vendor $125.00. Which of the following represents the correct change amount of change you should receive?
A.
Two dollars, one quarter, and one penny
B.
Two dollars, two dimes, and four pennies
C.
One dollar, one quarter, and one penny
D.
One dollar, two dimes, and four pennies
Correct Answer D. One dollar, two dimes, and four pennies
Explanation The bill comes to $123.76 and the customer gives the vendor $125.00. To find the correct change amount, we need to subtract the bill amount from the amount given. $125.00 - $123.76 = $1.24. This means that the customer should receive $1.24 as change. To break down this amount, we can use two dimes (20 cents), two pennies (2 cents), and one dollar bill. So, the correct change amount is one dollar, two dimes, and four pennies.

You work at a consumer product testing laboratory. You test two computer batteires and find that they each last for 3.0 hours before running out of power. Then you test a third battery. How long must it last for the mean running time to be 4.0 hours for the three batteries?
A.
4.0 hr
B.
5.0 hr
C.
5.5 hr
D.
6.0
Correct Answer D. 6.0
Explanation The third battery must last for 6.0 hours in order for the mean running time to be 4.0 hours for the three batteries. This is because the total running time of the three batteries is 3.0 + 3.0 + 6.0 = 12.0 hours. To find the mean running time, we divide the total running time by the number of batteries, which is 12.0 / 3 = 4.0 hours. Therefore, the third battery must last for 6.0 hours to achieve a mean running time of 4.0 hours.

Correct Answer C. List the ratings in order from least to greatest, and select the fourth rating.
Explanation To determine the median rating, you need to list the ratings in order from least to greatest and then select the fourth rating. This method ensures that the ratings are arranged in a sequence, allowing you to identify the middle value as the median. Adding the ratings together and dividing by seven would give you the average rating, not the median. Selecting the rating for Wednesday or the rating that is repeated most often would not give you the median.
