1. Nine out of 12 notebooks are gray.

2. d.   Rounding to the nearest hundred, (600 + 500 + 600 + 500 + 700 + 700) ÷ 6 = 600.
3. a.   \$0.1165 – \$0.095 = \$0.0215.
4. a.
5. If you use a calculator to solve this, solve for the value inside the square root sign and then take the square root.

6. d.   (\$15.95 × 2) + \$5.97 = \$37.87. The cost of standard shipping for this order is \$7.95. \$37.87 + \$7.95 = \$45.82.
7. a.   The cost for three DVDs is \$43.50. One-day shipping would be \$26.95 and standard shipping would be \$7.95. Find the difference: \$26.95 – \$7.95 = \$19.00.
8. c.   1 mile = 1,760 yards (5,280 ÷ 3). 100 yards = 100 ÷ 1,760 yards/mile = 0.056818181 mile, which is about 0.06 mile.
9. d.   Let c = the number of calories in 4 ounces. Calories/ounces: = 766.666… , which is about 770.
10. d.   It is easier to solve this problem using decimals, rather than fractions or percents: \$2,000 × 0.12 × 1.5 = \$240 × 1.5 = \$360.
11. d.   The actual length is 24 inches × = 24 × = 6 × = 42. 42 inches is also 3 feet 6 inches.
12. 3,140 ÷ 80 = 39 . To complete the job, Herman must buy 40 packages.

13. c.   The three roses sections have 90-degree angles which, when added, total 270 degrees. Subtract the total of the roses sections from the total degrees in a circle: 360 – 270 = 90. The lily sections total 90 degrees, or of the garden.
14. d.   Angle PNO = 180 – (90 + 50) = 180 – 140 = 40°.
15. e.   Without knowing the measure of angle MNO, there is no way to know the measure of angle NMO.
16. d.   The area of the walkway equals the area of the outer rectangle minus the area of the pool. Notice that the outer rectangle has a length of 60 feet (50 + 5 + 5) and a width of 40 feet (30 + 5 + 5). The area of the walkways equals (60 × 40) – (50 × 30) = 2,400 – 1,500 = 900 square feet.
17. a.   V = × π × r2 × h = × 3.14 × 42 × 4, which is about equal to 66.987 or 70 cubic feet.
18. c.   The ratio of rent in Wycoff to South Orange in 2000 = .
19. e.   Between 1980 and 2000, rent in South Orange increased from about \$250 to \$450. Percent increase = (\$450 – \$250) ÷ \$250 = = 80%.
20. The total interest paid on a 30-year loan at 6% is about \$118,000. To find the average: \$118,000 ÷ 3 = \$3,933, which rounds to \$4,000.

21. a.   To raise the average profit per quarter to \$5,000, Two Scoops Ice-Cream Parlor would need to earn a total yearly profit of \$20,000. You can see above the circle graph that the total yearly profit is \$18,000. \$20,000 – \$18,000 = \$2,000.
22. a.   The probability that the next pizza will be pepperoni is , which rounds to or 40%.
23. c.   The probability that the next pizza will be cheese is , which reduces to . Of the next 15 pizzas, × 15 are likely to be cheese. × 15 = 3.
24. a.   Try this rule on the sequence and you will see that it predicts each next number in this sequence. This is not true for any of the other rules.
25. a.   A ticket package costs \$2.25 and is good for three rides. A single ride costs \$2.25 ÷ 3, or \$0.75.
26. b.   V = π × r2 × h. π = × 10 = = 3.1.
27. c.   4,289 rounded to the nearest hundred is 4,300; 289 rounds up to 300, not down to 200.
28. d.   Add the prices of what Joey bought together: \$2.25 + \$0.75. This total amount must be subtracted from \$10.00: \$10.00 – (\$2.25 + \$0.75).
29. e.   Subtract to find the weight of the cans and then divide by two dozen to find the weight of one can.
30. pound. You could solve using decimals: 147.5 – 146.75 = 0.75, which as a fraction is expressed as .

31. d.   × 100% is about 67%. You can also eliminate the other answer choices easily if you figure out that is the only fraction listed that is greater than (50%).
32. a.   Materials/labor = .
33. b.   A centimeter is about the length of a ladybug. A millimeter would be the measure of a small ant, while a meter is a little longer than a yard. Liters measure capacity, not length.
34. d.   In 45 minutes, the time will be 11:30 and, if you add one more hour, the time will be 12:30, the time shown on the clock: 45 minutes + 1 hour = 1 hour 45 minutes.
35. a.   The ratio is amount earned/number of hours worked. On Saturday, this ratio is , and on Sunday .
36. c.   The actual distance is 15 miles × = 15 × = 37.5 miles.
37. d.   The angle shown is larger than a right angle, which is 90 degrees, but less than a straight angle, which is 180 degrees.
38. a.   The formula for the area of a triangle is × base × height = × 12 × 20 = 120 square yards.
39. c.   Any coordinates in this shaded area would have negative x and y values.
40. e.   This point is three units to the left of the y-axis and four units above the x-axis.
41. d.   Slope = change in y value/change in x value = (1 – 0) ÷ (5 – 2).
42. Identify the point on the line of best fit that lies directly above 10.5 on the horizontal axis. This point is directly across from 69 on the vertical axis.

43. a.   Identify the point on the line of best fit that lies directly across from 62 on the vertical axis. This point is directly above 8 on the horizontal axis.
44. c.   You need to find the average of the two middle foot lengths. Both of these points are 10 inches; there are seven points to the left and seven points to the right. The median is 10 inches.
45. c.   The probability that the next call is for Mr. Rivera is (or ) × 6 = 4.
46. e.   The number of men is represented by m; the number of women is represented by nm. The ratio of men to women can be written as the fraction .
47. e.   The cost of the tennis balls = \$1.75 × 8. The cost of the golf balls = g × 12 = 12g. The cost of the golf balls is \$32.50 minus the cost of the tennis balls, or 12g = \$32.50 – \$1.75 × 8.
48. e.   Each guest beyond the first person pays \$1.75 to be admitted to the beach. For a total of five people, the total cost is \$4.50 + (\$1.75 × 4), or \$11.50.
49. d.   When p = 3, y = 6(3) – 23 = 18 – 23 = –5. When p = 4, y = 6(4) – 23 = 24 – 23 = 1.
50. d.   Substitute x = 3 and y = 1 into the equation. Only choice d results in a true statement: 1 = ()3 – 1 = 2 – 1 = 1.
51. c.   When the diameter doubles, so does the radius. If r increases from 1 to 2 units, r2 increases from 1 to 4 units. The area of a circle quadruples when r doubles.
