### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

we use given information to find how much ammonia is need to make the specified solution.

We are told, one gallon of cleaning solution requires 6 oz of ammonia. In other words, we can express this as:

*1 gallon of solution**6 oz of ammonia*

Or

*6 oz of ammonia**1 gallon of solution*

Since we are needed to find how much ammonia is needed, we use the second option to find how much ammonia is required by 120 gallons of solution.

From the above equation, gallon of solution will cancel, and oz of ammonia is left.

Therefore, the solution will require 720 oz of ammonia.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

scatter plots can of three types: positive, negative and no correlation. A positive correlation scatter plot shows that as one variable increase, the other variable increases. A positive correlation can be visually depicted below.

In a negative correlation, the change in one variable is inversely proportional to another variable. That is, as one variable increases, the other variable decreases as shown below.

The third type of scatter plot is a no-correlation scatter plot. In this type of plot, there is no defined relationship between one variable and another one as in the curve below.

If we look at the relationship between the time the student listens to music and his test score, it is evident that no relationship exists between the two variables. Thus, this is a type of **no correlation** scatter plot.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

a ratio can be converted to a fraction of the form a/b, where b is not equal to zero. In ratio form, to means per.

From the given information, the class has 15 girls and 13 boys. Thus, the ratio of girls to boys becomes:

In ratio form, girls: boys=15:13

Thus, the ratio of girls to boys in a class of 28 students is 15 to 13.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

Correlation of two variables falls into:

Positive correlation: an increase in one variable causes another variable to increase

Negative correlation: an increase in one variable causes another one to decrease

No correlation: a change in one variable does not cause any response in another variable.

From the given choices

Option a is no correlation

Option b is a negative correlation

Option c is a negative correlation

Option d is a positive correlation

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

To find the true statement we need to analyze the given statements.

For statement 1: the points per game decreased five times between 1996 and 2015. So, the statement is false.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

In this problem, we assume the truck carries a whole cargo. Thus, total weight is 516 lb divided by 1/3. Thus,

We change the division sign to product and multiply 516 by reciprocal of 1/3. Then,

The weight of the cargo will be 1548 lbs.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

To form an equation from the word problem, first break the given statement into smaller statements.

First, we are given the width of the rectangle as x. We are told, the length is three times width. Mathematically, this means

Length=3*width=3*x=3x

Again, the length is 4 less than 3 times width of the rectangle. Thus, the length of rectangle in terms of width becomes:

Length =3x-4

This is the required equation.
