**A person weighed themselves at 153 lb. Five months later they weighed themselves at 120 lb. Which of the following is the percent of weight the person lost over 5 months? (Round to the nearest percent.)**

38%

22%

19%

29%

*Correct Answer : B*

The percentage change in weight is found in three steps below:

Absolute change in weight=final weight-initial weight

Absolute change in weight= (left|120-153 ight|=left|-33 ight|=33)

Relative change in weight=* (frac{absolute change}{initial weight}=frac{33}{153}=0.216)*

Percent change=relative change * 100%

Percent change=0.216*100%=21.6%

The percent change in weight lost is 21.6 %, which is about 22%.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

The number of cups of milk to make a bigger batch, we proceed as follows:

First convert the mixed number 1 2/5 as

Then, we let the unknown number of cups of milk to be x and we set a proportion equation with number cups of floor as numerator and cups of milk as denominator

Find the value of x by cross-products

2 as a fraction is 2/1 which is then used to find the product of the numerator as follows.

Per means division. The above equation becomes

When dividing fractions, we multiply the first fraction with the reciprocal of the second. The reciprocal of 2/9 is 9/2. Thus

The numbers of cups of milk required is 63/5, which when converted to mixed fraction becomes 12 3/5.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

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

6.98 becomes 698/100

9.2 becomes 92/10

The least common denominator for the denominators of 7, 100 and 10 is 700. Now we can multiply each fraction with 700 as follows:

3/7*700=300

698/100*700=4886

10/7*700=1000

92/10*700=6440

In order from the smallest to largest, we organize the number set as follows:

3/7, 10/7, 6.98, 9.2.

Thus, 9.2 is the greatest of all.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

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

First, we convert 2 Â¼ into improper fraction as:

Letting x to be the number of cups of flour, we set up a proportion equation with number of cookies on numerator and number of cups of flour on the denominator becomes:

Solve the value of x by cross-products

Dividing both sides by 60, the above equation result to

Thus, the number of cups of flour needed to make 90 cookies is 81/16 cups, which is equal to 5 1/16 cups.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We are asked to find the number of students enrolled in the radiologic program using the information provided on the pie chart.

If we let x represent the number of students enrolled in the radiologic program, we set a proportion equation with number of students on the numerator and percentages on the denominator.

Total percent in the pie chart adds to 100%, which equals 1200 students. Then, 21% will represent

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

Therefore, 252 students will enroll for a radiologic program.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

we find the value of x by applying the absolute conditions to the given equation.

First, add 2 to both sides of equation

The absolute conditions are:

IfÂ *Â *Â , a>0, then u=a or u=-a

In this case a=10, which is greater 0.

The first condition becomes

Add 2 to both sides of the equation

Divide both sides by 4

The second condition becomes

Add 2 to both sides of the equation

Divide both sides by 4

Then, the value of x is 3 or -2.
