**The hypotenuse (side C) of a triangle is 13 inches long. Which of the following pairs of measurements could be the correct for the lengths of the other two sides of the triangle? (Note: A2 + B2= C2)**

5 inches, 12 inches

2.5 inches, 6 inches

2.5 inches, 4 inches

5 inches, 8 inches

*Correct Answer : A*

In this problem, we take the triangle as a right-angled triangle and label it as follows:

From the Pythagoras theorem A2 + B2= C2, we can look for a combination of A and B that when the squares of A and B are summed give a square of 13. Mathematically,

But C=13 inches

If we take A=5 inches and B=12 inches, then

Next, we take A=2.5 inches, B=6 inches

Next, we take A=2.5 inches, B=4 inches

*6.25+16=169*

*22.25≠169*

Taking A=5 inches and B=8 inches

From the above computation, the combination of A=5 inches and B=12 inches give a triangle with a hypothenuse of 13 inches.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

The best way to display the frequency of each day of the week when students get up after 8 a.m. is by using **a bar graph**. Bar graphs are well-suited for representing categorical data, where each day of the week is a separate category, and the height of each bar corresponds to the count or frequency of students waking up late on that specific day.

Note: Histograms, on the other hand, are more appropriate for visualizing continuous or numerical data and are not ideal for categorical data like days of the week.Histograms are useful for **understanding the distribution of data**,** identifying patterns**, and **assessing the shape of the data distribution**, such as whether it's normally distributed, skewed, or has multiple modes.

As you can see below, the Histogram is used to depict a pattern/continuous data. While a bar graph does just fine even with discrete data.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

Here we are required to find the area of the square of sides 3.1 m. The square is a four-sided figure with each side equal and opposite sides making 90 degrees.

Area of the square =side*side

Side=3.1 m

Area of the square=3.1 m *3.1 m=9.61 m2

*Note: 3.1 + 3.1 = 6.2 which is a wrong answer.*

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

We can interpret ‘cannot exceed” as less than ‘<’. Therefore, in our inequality, the symbol < must be included. Now let’s convert the word problem into a mathematical inequality.

Money spent on supplies=s

Money spent on textbooks=t

Total money spent=money spent on supplies + money spent on textbooks

Total money spent = s+t

But the money spent cannot exceed $12,000. Then,

s+t <$12,000.

However the money spent can still be equal to $12000, as it has not exceeded it.

Therefore, therequired inequality is s + t <= $12,000.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

all products represent 100%. Then, the portion of defect products is:

0.0025 of 100%

‘of’ means multiply

0.0025 *100%=0.25%

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

In this problem, to find one side of the square garden, we use the calculator to find the square root of 13. Thus

Thus, the approximate side of a square garden is about 3.6 ft

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

The mean is the total divided by the number of elements in the data set. From the given data set:

Total=30+29+28+30+24+12+26+33+25+23=260

Number of items, N=10

Mean=total/N=260/10=26

The mean is 26.

### Correct Answer is B

#### Explanation

So, 400 mg to g becomes

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

We are given that 1 teaspoon=4.93 mL, we can interpret it as:

Or

Since we are to find the amount in mL, we look for an option that will cancel teaspoon and remain with mL. The second option is the required conversion, and we proceed as follows:

Therefore, 2.5 teaspoons hold about 12.325 mL.

### Correct Answer is A

#### Explanation

To find the net force, we choose east direction as positive and west as negative. From this, we can present the tag of war in the diagram below.

So, the force on the dog is -190 N and that of the girl is 165 N.

The net force is the sum of the two forces

The resulting force is negative, meaning it is in the west direction. Thus, the net force is 25 N to the west.

### Correct Answer is C

#### Explanation

We need to perform a series of numerical dimensional analysis to find the number of bags sugar needed for 300 people.

We are told that 50 people need 4 cups of sugar. This can be interpretated as:

Or

Also, one bag of sugar contains 6 cups. This can also be presented as:

Or

We use the second option relating number of people and cups, and second option relating cups of sugar and bag of sugar to find for number of bags of sugar needed for 300 people.

Therefore, 300 people will need 4 bags of sugar.
