    B. 910.00
    Explanation
    To round 907.457 to the nearest tens place, we look at the digit in the ones place, which is 7. Since 7 is greater than or equal to 5, we round up the tens place. Therefore, the tens digit becomes 1 and the ones digit becomes 0. Hence, the correct answer is 910.00.

    Correct Answer
    B. 15
    Explanation
    The average of a set of numbers is found by adding up all the numbers in the set and then dividing the sum by the total number of values. In this case, the sum of 12, 15, 23, and 10 is 60. Dividing 60 by 4 (the total number of values) gives us an average of 15.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    On Monday and Thursday, lunch cost $5.43 total. On Tuesday and Wednesday, lunch cost $3.54 on each day.On Friday, lunch cost $7.89. What was the average daily cost?

    • A.

      3.19

    • B.

      3.75

    • C.

      3.90

    • D.

      4.08

    • E.

      4.23

    Correct Answer
    D. 4.08
    Explanation
    The average daily cost can be calculated by adding up the total cost of lunch for each day and then dividing by the number of days. From the given information, we can calculate the total cost of lunch for each day as follows: Monday and Thursday = $5.43, Tuesday and Wednesday = $3.54 x 2 = $7.08, and Friday = $7.89. Adding up these costs gives us a total of $5.43 + $7.08 + $7.89 = $20.40. Since there are 5 days in total, we can divide the total cost by 5 to get the average daily cost, which is $20.40 / 5 = $4.08. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.08.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    . What is 1230.932567 rounded to the nearest hundredths place?

    • A.

      1200

    • B.

      1230.9326

    • C.

      1230.930

    • D.

      1230.00

    • E.

      1230.9330

    Correct Answer
    C. 1230.930
    Explanation
    The number 1230.932567 rounded to the nearest hundredths place is 1230.930. This is because the digit in the hundredths place is 9, which is greater than or equal to 5. Therefore, we round up the digit in the tenths place to the next higher number, which is 3. The remaining digits after the hundredths place are dropped.

    Correct Answer
    E. 29
    Explanation
    The mathematical average of the number of weeks in a year, seasons in a year, and the number of days in January can be calculated by adding these three numbers together and then dividing by 3. The number of weeks in a year is 52, the number of seasons in a year is 4, and the number of days in January is 31. Adding these together gives us 52 + 4 + 31 = 87. Dividing 87 by 3 gives us 29, which is the mathematical average.

      28

    • E.

      36

    Correct Answer
    C. 24
    Explanation
    Let's assume the number of oranges in the basket is x. According to the given information, there are 12 more apples than oranges. So, the number of apples can be represented as x + 12. The total number of fruits in the basket is 36. Therefore, the equation can be formed as x + (x + 12) = 36. By solving this equation, we get x = 12. So, the number of apples in the basket is x + 12 = 12 + 12 = 24.

    A train travels 20 feet in 1/5 seconds At this exact speed, how many feet will it travel in three seconds?

    • A.

      60

    • B.

      150

    • C.

      200

    • D.

      300

    • E.

      500

    Correct Answer
    D. 300
    Explanation
    The train travels 20 feet in 1/5 seconds. To find out how many feet it will travel in three seconds, we can set up a proportion. Since 1/5 is equivalent to 3/15, we can say that 20 feet is equivalent to 3/15 seconds. We can then find out how many feet the train will travel in 3 seconds by cross-multiplying and solving for x. 3/15 * 20 = x/3. Simplifying this equation, we get x = 300. Therefore, the train will travel 300 feet in three seconds.
