**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 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.

The car uses 1 gallon to cover 25 miles, which is same as:

Now, in 3000 miles, the car will use how many gallons of gasoline?

A trip of 3000 miles will need 120 gallons. And to find the cost of 120 gallons, we proceed as follows:

The family will spend $199.20 to drive for 3000 miles.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

The best way to display the frequency of each day of the week when students get up after 8 a.m. is by using **a bar graph**. Bar graphs are well-suited for representing categorical data, where each day of the week is a separate category, and the height of each bar corresponds to the count or frequency of students waking up late on that specific day.

Note: Histograms, on the other hand, are more appropriate for visualizing continuous or numerical data and are not ideal for categorical data like days of the week.Histograms are useful for **understanding the distribution of data**,** identifying patterns**, and **assessing the shape of the data distribution**, such as whether it's normally distributed, skewed, or has multiple modes.

As you can see below, the Histogram is used to depict a pattern/continuous data. While a bar graph does just fine even with discrete data.

### 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 B

#### Explanation

from the provided table, the first option represents the amount of gas in gallons while the second column shows the distance in miles. Thus, (6, 144) will denote that the car can 144 miles by consuming 6 gallons of a gas.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

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

From the data set above, there are 8temperature 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=8and median is found as:

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

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

From the given problem,

49.5 pounds of fertilizer is needed to farm 1 acre of land. This can be interpreted as:

Or

Now we are needed to find the acres of land that will be farmed using 2000 pounds of fertilizers. To solve this, we use the second option as follows:

2000 pounds of fertilizers can farm approximately 40 acres of land.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We can interpret ‘cannot exceed” as less than ‘<’. Therefore, in our inequality, the symbol < must be included. Now let’s convert the word problem into a mathematical inequality.

Money spent on supplies=s

Money spent on textbooks=t

Total money spent=money spent on supplies + money spent on textbooks

Total money spent = s+t

But the money spent cannot exceed $12,000. Then,

s+t <$12,000.

However the money spent can still be equal to $12000, as it has not exceeded it.

Therefore, therequired inequality is s + t <= $12,000.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

A dependent variable is one that when another variable changes, it also changes. In our case, the insurance premium changes if the age, model, mileage of car changes. Thus, insurance premium is the dependent variable while the other three are independent variable.
