**A baker is using a cookie recipe that call for 2 ¼ cups of flour to yield 36 cookies. How much flour will the baker need to make 90 cookies using the same recipe?**

6 ¾ cups

5 5/8 cups

10 1/8 cups

4 ¾ cups

*Correct Answer : B*

We are asked to find the number of cups of flour that will be used to make 90 cookies.

Letting x be the number of cups of flour and setting the proportion equation with number of cookies on numerator and number of cups of flour on the denominator. We have

Solve the value of x by cross-multiplying

We convert the mixed fraction into improper fraction in order to carry out multiplication

\(x =\ \frac{9}{4}\ cups\ *\ 90\ cookies\ *\ \frac{1}{36}\ cookies\)

The number of cups of flour needed to make 90 cookies is 5.625 cups, which is equal to 5 5/8 cups(Choice B).

What fraction of the pizza the other three friends get is what is asked to find.

First, the pizza is whole, representing a value of 1. Then, one friend ate half of the pizza. Thun, the fraction of the pizza the friend gets is:

First friend eats =1/2 of 1=1/2

Remaining fraction of the pizza=1-1/2=1/2

Now, the three friends share ½ amongst themselves equally. Then, each friend gets

The three friends each gets 1/6 of the pizza.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

We are asked to find the number of gallons full tank can hold. The fraction of full tank is 1.

First, we let x be the number of gallons in full tank. Then, set the proportion equation by setting the number of gallons on the numerator and fraction of tank on denominator as follows.

Convert the mixed fraction into proper fraction and cross-multiply to find the value of x.

Converting 42/5 to a mixed fraction is 8 2/5. Thus, when the tank is full, it holds 8 2/5 gallons of water.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

We are being asked to find the amount of milk needed. This is a proportion problem, which compares the amount of flour to that of milk. Letting x represent the amount of milk required, we set up the proportion with flour on the numerator and amount of milk in denominator as follows:

Change the mixed fraction of 1 1/5 into improper fraction as follows

The proportion equation becomes

Cross-multiply to solve for x

As an mixed fraction, 36/5 becomes 7 1/5. Therefore, 7 1/5 cups of milk are needed to make a big batch of 2 cups.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

The slope represent the ratio between the vertical height to the horizontal length. Let x be the minimum length of the ramp, we can set a proportion with height on the numerator and length on denominator. Then,

Cross-multiply to find the value of x

Thus, the minimum length of the ramp needed is **30 feet** to access to a door that is 2.5 feet above the sidewalk.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

In this problem, we need to compare the number of dimes to quarters.

If we let n be number of pennies in the bottle. Then,

Number of quarters in the bottle = 2n

Number of nickels in the bottle = 4n

Number of dimes in the bottle =5(4n)=20n

Now relating dimes to quarters, we have

Thus, there are 10 times as many dimes as quarters in the box.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

To find the greatest number from the given options, we first convert the decimal numbers into fractions.

4.25 becomes 425/100

4.4 becomes 44/10

Then, we find the LCM for the denominators of the given fractions. The LCM of 2, 100, 3 and 10 is 300. Now we can multiply each fraction with the LCM.

9/2*300=1350

425/100*300=1275

10/3*300=1000

44/10*300=1320

Comparing the obtained values from above, 1350 is the greatest followed by 1320, 12750, and 1000 in that order. The fraction 9/2 gave a value of 1350, which was the greatest value. Thus, 9/2 is the greatest value from the given option.

You can also convert to decimals and compare which would give you the same answer.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

Percentages are fractions with denominator equal to 100. The given percent is divided by 100. To convert it to a decimal form, we move the decimal point two points to the left from the current position. Thus

The decimal form of 87.5% is 0.875.
