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 A

#### Explanation

We analyze the given statement with the graph given as follows:

For option a: the points per game decreased five times between 1996 and 2015. So, the statement is true.

For option b: the lowest points scored per game was in 1998-99 season. So, the statement is false.

For option c: 2008-09 was the season the chargers scored the greatest number of points per game and not 2002-03 as claimed in the statement. So, this statement is not true.

### 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:

* *

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

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

An independent variable is a change that when modified brings a change in other variables. In this case, the person increases his climbing rate, calories burned, distance traveled and energy used increases. Therefore, the walking speed is the independent variable while other variables are dependent.

### 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

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 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 D

#### Explanation

Based rainfall falling for the first 5 months, a bar graph will give a great display for the farmer to decide when start planting. The horizontal scale will represent months of the year and vertical scale will present the amount of rainfall falling.

### Correct Answer is D

#### Explanation

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.
