**If x represents the width of a rectangle and length is four less than three times the width, which of the following expressions represents the length of the rectangle in terms of x?**

4 - 3x

3 - 4x

4x - 3

3x - 4

*Correct Answer : D*

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.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

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

5.2 becomes 52/10

5.15 becomes 515/100

Next, find the least common denominator of 3, 10, and 100, which is 300. We use this value and multiply each fraction.

7/3*300=700

52/10*300=1560

13/3*300=1300

515/100*300=1545

From the above, 1560 is the greatest value which corresponds to 52/10. Thus, 5.2 is the greatest value of all the choices given.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

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

And

We want millimeters, use the second option to change L to mL as:

Therefore, 2.5 L is equivalent to 2500 mL.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

In order for the teacher to better visualize the test performance for his class, he needs to present the mark distribution in chart form. A better chart visualizer is the *histogram*, which will show the frequency of marks against range of test scores. A bar graph will not be used because the rectangles need to touch one another.

In a bar graph, the rectangles do not touch each other. Therefore, it will not be a good chart visualizer.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

We need to find the radius of the circle from the given value of area. Then, the radius of the circle will be used to find the circumference of the circle.

The first step is to find the radius, r of the circle as

Thus, the circumference of a circle whose area is \(9\pi\ in\ ^2\)is 6* *in.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

The selling price of the sweater is marked price less the mark off value.

Mark off value=mark off rate*original price

Mark of value=30% of $95

Mark of value=0.30*$95=$28.50

Now, find the selling price of the sweater

Selling price= marked price-mark off value

Thus, the sweater will be sold for 66.50 after applying a mark off of 30%. The selling price is about $67.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

A ratio is of the form a : b but can also be converted to a fraction of the form a/b, where b is not equal to zero. Besides, to in ration means per in fraction form.

In the class of 40 students, 22 are girls and 18 are boys. Thus, the ratio of girls to boys becomes:

*Â *

The above fraction can be reduced further since 2 is a common factor in both 22 and 18. Thus

Â

In ratio form, girls: boys=11:9

Thus, the ratio of girls to boys in a class of 40 students is 11 to 9.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We use the order of operation to solve for the unknown value of x.

3(3x+3)=8x+5

Multiply 3 with each number in the brackets

(3*3x)+(3*3)=8x+5

9x+9=8x+5

Subtract 9 from both sides

9x+9-9=8x+5-9

9x=8x-4

Subtract 8x on both sides

9x-8x=8x-8x-4

x=-4

Thus, the unknown value of x is -4.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

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

Let the unknown number be x.

Thrice a number is three times = 3x

Twelve less than thrice a number = 3x-12

Thus, the mathematical expression from the word problem is 3x-12

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

From the given data, we can draw the following triangle by letting the unknown length to be p.

We apply the Pythagoras theorem, the value of p:

The unknown length of the triangle is about 21.4 feet.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

to find the average time the athlete runs in 1 mile; we find total distance and total time the athlete takes in running.

Total distance run by athlete=7+3=10 miles

Total time=45+15 =60 minutes

The athlete runs 10 miles in 60 minutes. For the athlete to cover 1 mile, he will run for a time less than 60 minutes. Thus, in 1 mile, the athlete takes:

So, in 6 minutes, the athlete covers 1 mile.
