**-3/5, -0.9, -1.9, -8/3**

**Of the number listed above, which number is the greatest?**

-3/5

-0.9

-1.9

-8/3

*Correct Answer : A*

To answer this question, we need to convert the numbers into a similar form. Converting decimal numbers into fraction is appropriate to finding the greatest number.

-0.9 becomes 9/10

-1.9 becomes 19/10

Now we find the LCM of the denominators of the four fractions. The LCM of 5, 10 and 3 is 30. Multiply each fraction with the LCM to compare the fractions.

-3/5*30=-18

-9/10*30=-27

-19/10*30=-57

-8/3*30=-24

The greatest number is -18, meaning -3/5 is the greatest number.

#### Explanation

we are to use the pie chart to find the number of students enrolled in dental hygiene care.

Letting x represent the number of students enrolled in dental hygiene care, we set the proportion equation with number of students as numerator and percentage as denominator. It should be noted that the whole pie chart represents 100% of the 800 students. Then,

We solve the value of x by cross-products.

Therefore, 144 students will enroll for a dental hygiene program.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

we are asked to find the area of a rectangle, which can only be found by finding the relation between length and width. Now, letting x represent the width, then

Length of rectangle=(x+2)

Width of the rectangle= x

Area of the rectangle, A= Length*width=(x+2)*x

A=x(x+2)

Therefore, the area of the rectangle becomes x(x+2).

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

To find the greatest number from the given set, we first convert the decimal numbers into fractions.

12.35 becomes 1235/100

11.46 becomes 1146/10

Then, the LCM for the denominators of the given fractions of 2, 100, 3 and 10 is 300. Now we multiply each fraction with 300, which we will use to compare the give set.

25/2*300=3750

1235/100*300=3705

40/3*300=4000

1146/10*300=3438

From the calculated values, 4000 is the greatest value. Then, 40/3is the greatest value.
