**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

To solve this problem, we need to have all options in fraction form.

74Â Â 95 =Â

7/8 = 3/8

0.72 = 72/100

74% = 74/100

Now, find the least common denominator of 95, 8, and 100. The least common denominator is 3800, which we multiply by each fraction as follows:

74/95*3800=2960

7/8*3800=3325

72/100*3800=2736

74/100*3800=2812

We can see that the fraction 7/8 is the greatest among the given options.

### 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

The truck carries a whole cargo which equals 1. If we let the weight of the cargo to be p, then we set up a proportion equation with weight as numerator and fraction of cargo as denominator.

Solve for value of p by cross products

Multiply both sides by 3/2 a reciprocal of 2/3

The truck carries a cargo weighing 795 lb.

### Correct Answer is C

#### 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 10oz of ammonia. Expressing this mathematically yields two options:

\(\frac{10\ oz\ of\ ammonia}{1\ gallon\ of\ solution}\)or\(\frac{1\ gallon\ of\ solution}{10\ oz\ of\ ammonia}\)

Now we find how much ammonia is needed using option two.

\(51\ gallon\ of\ solution\ *\frac{10\ oz\ of\ ammonia}{1\ gallon\ of\ solution}\ =\ 510\ oz\ of\ ammonia\)

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

Therefore, the solution will require 510 oz of ammonia.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

We solve for the value of x by following the order of operations

3(x-2)=15

Divide both sides of the equation by 3

Add 2 to both sides of the equation

Thus, the value of x is 8.

### 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 A

#### Explanation

The first five months of the year are January, February, March, April, and May. We use to graph to find the amount of rainfall in each month as follows:

In the month of January, rainfall was between o and 1, which is halfway. Therefore, rainfall in January is 0.5 inches

On February, rainfall was 1 inch and on March the rainfall was 2 inches.

On April, the rainfall amount was 4 inches while on month of May, the rainfall was about 3.5 inches. Therefore, total rainfall in the first 5 months was:

Total rainfall=0.5 inches+1 inches+ 2 inches+4 inches + 3.5 inches =11 inches
