### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

In this scenario, we use the given scale in the charts to find the number of each coin and selected the right number of coins the student collected. The second options shows that the child collected 50 pennies, 45 nickels, 25 dimes, and 5 quarters.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

we are asked to find the largest value from the options given. To solve this problem, we need to convert all the given values into fraction. Then find the least common denominator for all fractions, which we will use to multiply each fraction and make a comparison.

34*Ã·*96=

3/8=3/8

0.372=372/1000

37%=37/100

Now, we need to find the least common denominator of 48, 8, 1000, and 100, which is 6000. We multiply each fraction by 6000 as follows:

17/48*6000=2125

3/8*6000=2250

372/1000*6000=2232

37/100*6000=2220

From the above calculations, arranging the fraction from the largest to the smallest in order is: 3/8, 372/1000,37/100, and 17/48.Â Thus, the greatest value is 3/8.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

we need to find the net income of the nurse in 4 weeks from the weekly net income.

Weekly net income=gross income-total tax

Total tax=federal income tax+state income tax+Social Security tax

Total tax=$(83.00+38.00+79.00)

Total tax=$200.00

Weekly net income=$(800.00-200.00)=$600.00

In one week, the net income of the nurse is $600.00 and in 4 weeks the nurse will a net income of:

The nurse will earn $2,400.00 in 4 weeks after taxes are deducted.

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 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 D

#### Explanation

we need to form a mathematical expression from the given word problem.

Let the number be x.

Twice a number=2x

Five less than twice a number=2x-5

So the mathematical express from the word problem is 2x-5

### Correct Answer is C

Thus, 5/8 is equal to 62.5%.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

We use 1 L =1000 mL to convert between the two units. The conversion fractions of interconverting are:

And

Since we want to end up with millimeters, the second conversion is used in converting L to mL as:

Thus, 0.5 L is equivalent to 500 mL.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

in the given problem, we use the calculator to find 1.3*0.47=0.611

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

The initial step is to convert the decimal numbers into fractions.

4.4 becomes 44/10

4.25 becomes 425/100

Thus, the set of fractions is 9/2, 44/10, 10/3, 425/100. The least common denominator for 2, 10, 3, and 100 is 300, which we use to compare each options given.

9/2*300=1350

44/10*300=1320

10/3*300=1000

425/100*300=1275

From the above, 1350 is the greatest value which corresponds to 9/2. Thus, 9/2 is the greatest value of all the choices given.
