**-2/3, -0.5, -1.5, -4/9**

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

-0.5

-4/9

-1.5

-2/3

*Correct Answer : B*

Before finding the greatest number from the data set, the numbers need to be in fraction form.

-0.5=-5/10

-1.5=-15/10

The set of numbers becomes -2/3, -5/10, -15/10, -4/9

Now the least common denominator for 3, 10, and 9 is 90, which will be used to multiplied by the given fractions as follows:

-2/3*90=-60

-5/10*90=-45

-15/10*90=-135

-4/9*90=-40

From the above evaluations, the resulting numbers arranged from the smallest to the largest is -135, -60, -45, -40. Thus, the greatest number from the data set is -40, with a corresponding fraction of -4/9.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We use the given slope to find the minimum length of the ramp. In this case, slope is the ratio of height to length of the lamp. Thus,

If we let x be the minimum length of the ramp. Then,

Substituting the value of slope into the above equation results in,

Solve for value of x by cross-products

*X = 18 Feet*

Thus, the minimum length of the ramp needed to provide access to a door that is 1.5Â high is 18Â feet.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

To find the greatest number from the given options, convert the decimal numbers into fractions.

6.98 becomes 698/100

9.2 becomes 92/10

The least common denominator for the denominators of 7, 100 and 10 is 700. Now we can multiply each fraction with 700 as follows:

3/7*700=300

698/100*700=4886

10/7*700=1000

92/10*700=6440

In order from the smallest to largest, we organize the number set as follows:

3/7, 10/7, 6.98, 9.2.

Thus, 9.2 is the greatest of all.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

The number of cups of milk to make a bigger batch, we proceed as follows:

First convert the mixed number 1 2/5 as

Then, we let the unknown number of cups of milk to be x and we set a proportion equation with number cups of floor as numerator and cups of milk as denominator

Find the value of x by cross-products

2 as a fraction is 2/1 which is then used to find the product of the numerator as follows.

Per means division. The above equation becomes

When dividing fractions, we multiply the first fraction with the reciprocal of the second. The reciprocal of 2/9 is 9/2. Thus

The numbers of cups of milk required is 63/5, which when converted to mixed fraction becomes 12 3/5.
