**A macaroni and cheese recipe calls for 1/3 cup of flour for every 1 1/5 cup of milk. To make a bigger batch, the chef uses 2 cups of flour. Which of the following would be the amount of milk needed for the bigger batch?**

7 1/5 cups

2 2/5 cups

3 8/15 cups

6 cups

*Correct Answer : A*

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.

Solving for x

Then, the value of x is -1 or 2.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

We need to find the are of the rectangle from the given case. Letting x represent the width of the rectangle. Then, we can find the area of the rectangle as follows.

Length of rectangle=(x+5)

Width of the rectangle= x

Area of the rectangle, A= Length*width=(x+5)*x

A=x(x+5)

Thus, the area of the rectangle is x(x+5).

### Correct Answer is D

We are asked to find the number of students enrolled in the respiratory care program using the percentages in the pie chart.

If we let x represent the number of students enrolled in the respiratory care program, we can set a proportion equation with number of students on the numerator and percentages on the denominator. The whole pie chart represents 100%, which is 800 students. Then, 19% will represent

We solve the value of x by cross-multiplying the equation above.

So, 152 students will enroll for a respiratory care program.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

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

-0.7 becomes 7/10

-1.3 becomes 13/10

Then, we find the LCM for the denominators of the given fractions. The LCM of 3 and 10 is 30. Now we can multiply each fraction with the LCM.

-2/3*30=-20

-7/10*30=-70

-13/10*30=-39

-4/3*30=-40

Comparing the obtained values from above, -20 is the greatest followed by -39, -40, -70 in that order. The fraction -2/3 gave a value of -20, which was the greatest value. Thus, -2/3 is the greatest value from the given option.

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 Â½ amongst themselves equally. Then, each friend gets

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

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

We need to find the price changes in each day of the week in order to find the price of the stock on Thursday.

Monday’s price was $50.33

Tuesday’s price went up by $2.35 from Monday’s price. The price was $(50.33+2.35)=$52.68

Wednesday’s price decreased by $1.07 from Tuesday’s price, and so the price of the stock was $(52.68-1.07)=$51.61

Thursday’s price increased by $0.75 from Wednesday’s price, which was $(51.61+0.75)=$52.36

Therefore, the price of the stock on Thursday was $52.36.
