**A patient's temperature was recorded in degrees Fahrenheit every hour for 8 hr. The temperatures in Fahrenheit were 99.0°, 99.2°, 98.7°, 99.3°, 99.7°, 98.6°, 100.0° and 99.0°. Which of the following is the median temperature?**

99.5°F

99.1°F

99.2°F

99°F

*Correct Answer : B*

The median temperature can be found by organizing the temperature values from the smallest to the largest value as follows:

98.6, 98.7, 99.0, 99.0, 99.2, 99.3, 99.7, 100.0

### (for an even set of numbers, Median = frac{(frac{n}{2})th observation + (frac{n}{2} + 1) th observation}{2})

From the data set above, there are 8 temperature values. The median is the temperature value in the middle position, which falls between the (frac{n}{2} th) and ((frac{n}{2} + 1) th) position. Here N=8 and median is found as:

(frac{(frac{n}{2})th + (frac{n}{2} + 1) th}{2} = )(frac{(frac{8}{2})th + (frac{8}{2} + 1) th }{2} = 4.5th position)

The element in the 4.5th position is the average of the 4th and 5th element.

(frac{99.0 + 99.2}{2} = 99.1)

Thus 99.1 is the median temperature.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

to solve for x, we order like terms together and proceed as follows:

4x-3-5x=24

Add 3 to both sides of the equation

4x-3+3-5x=24+3

4x+3-3-5x=27

4x-5x=27

-x=27

Divide both sides by -1

-x/-1=27/-1

x= -27

Thus, the unknown value of x is -27

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We solve the problem by first finding the amount of gallons needed for the whole trip then find the cost of the gallon.

We need to perform a series of numerical dimensional analysis to find the number of bags sugar needed for 300 people.

We are told that 50 people need 4 cups of sugar. This can be interpretated as:

Or

Also, one bag of sugar contains 6 cups. This can also be presented as:

Or

We use the second option relating number of people and cups, and second option relating cups of sugar and bag of sugar to find for number of bags of sugar needed for 300 people.

Therefore, 300 people will need 4 bags of sugar.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

Here we are required to find the area of the square of sides 3.1 m. The square is a four-sided figure with each side equal and opposite sides making 90 degrees.

Area of the square =side*side

Side=3.1 m

Area of the square=3.1 m *3.1 m=9.61 m2

*Note: 3.1 + 3.1 = 6.2 which is a wrong answer.*

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

Here we collect like terms together and solve for the unknown value of x.

7x-6=3x-26

Add 6 to both sides of the equation

7x-6+6=3x-26+6

7x=3x-20

Subtract 3x from both sides of the equation

7x-3x=-20

4x=-20

Divide both sides by 4

4x/-4=-20/4

x = -5

The value of x = -5

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

Round trip means to and from, which is twice the distance from home to a medical facility.

So, in 22 days, the round trip=38*22=836 miles.

The patient will cover 836 miles in 22 days.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

We need to find the length of the rectangle from the given area and width of the rectangle. Let L be length if the rectangle. Then,

Area of rectangle=Length*width

Substituting area=32 in2 and w=4 inches

32=L*4

32=4L

Divide both sides by 4

32/4=4L/4

8=L

The length of the rectangle is 8 inches.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

In this problem, we take the triangle as a right-angled triangle and label it as follows:

From the Pythagoras theorem A2 + B2= C2, we can look for a combination of A and B that when the squares of A and B are summed give a square of 13. Mathematically,

But C=13 inches

If we take A=5 inches and B=12 inches, then

Next, we take A=2.5 inches, B=6 inches

Next, we take A=2.5 inches, B=4 inches

*6.25+16=169*

*22.25≠169*

Taking A=5 inches and B=8 inches

From the above computation, the combination of A=5 inches and B=12 inches give a triangle with a hypothenuse of 13 inches.
