1. How many milliliters are in 4 liters?
- A. 40 milliliters
- B. 40 milliliters
- C. 4000 milliliters
- D. 4 milliliters
Correct answer: C
Rationale: To convert liters to milliliters, you must remember that 1 liter is equal to 1,000 milliliters. Therefore, to find out how many milliliters are in 4 liters, you multiply 4 by 1,000. This gives you a total of 4,000 milliliters in 4 liters. Choices A, B, and D are incorrect because they do not correctly convert liters to milliliters. A and B incorrectly represent 40 milliliters, which would be the result if you mistakenly multiplied by 10 instead of 1,000. Choice D is even further from the correct answer, as it suggests only 4 milliliters, which is significantly less than the actual conversion of 4 liters to milliliters.
2. Jeff needed a 6 ft. rope. He found 2 pieces of rope and thought maybe he could tie them together. One rope was 40 inches and the other was 36 inches. How long would the rope be, and would he have enough rope if he ties them together?
- A. No, the rope would be 76 inches.
- B. Yes, the rope would be 76 inches.
- C. Yes, the rope would be 6 feet.
- D. No, the rope would be 6 feet.
Correct answer: B
Rationale: To convert 6 feet to inches, we multiply 6 by 12 (1 foot = 12 inches), giving us 72 inches needed. By adding the lengths of the two ropes (40 inches + 36 inches), Jeff would have a total of 76 inches, which is more than the 72 inches required. Therefore, he would have enough rope if he ties them together. Choice A and D are incorrect because they misinterpret the conversion from feet to inches. Choice C is incorrect as it does not consider the actual combined length of the two ropes.
3. Add: 34 + 74 + 37 = ?
- A. 145
- B. 155
- C. 154
- D. 135
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To find the sum of the numbers 34 + 74 + 37, add them together: 34 + 74 + 37 = 145. Therefore, the correct answer is A. Choice B (155) is incorrect as it results from adding 34 + 74 + 37 incorrectly. Choice C (154) is incorrect as it is the result of adding the first two numbers correctly, but missing the addition of the third number. Choice D (135) is incorrect as it is the result of a calculation error, possibly adding the numbers in a different order.
4. What is the result of subtracting 2 5/8 from 7/8?
- A. 1 3/4
- B. 2
- C. 1
- D. 2 & 1/2
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To subtract 2 5/8 from 7/8, first, convert 7/8 to an equivalent fraction with the same denominator as 2 5/8, which is 8. 7/8 equals 1 whole and 1/8. Subtracting 1 whole from 2 whole results in 1 whole, and subtracting 1/8 from 5/8 gives 4/8 or 1/2. Therefore, the answer is 1 1/2, which simplifies to 1 3/4. Choice B, 2, is incorrect as it doesn't represent the correct result of the subtraction. Choice C, 1, is incorrect as it doesn't account for the fractional part of the answer. Choice D, 2 & 1/2, is incorrect as it doesn't match the calculated result of 1 3/4.
5. If a dice is rolled, what is the probability of getting an even number?
- A. 16%
- B. 33%
- C. 66%
- D. 50%
Correct answer: D
Rationale: When rolling a standard six-sided die, there are three even numbers (2, 4, 6) out of a total of six possible outcomes (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). The probability of rolling an even number can be calculated as the number of favorable outcomes (3) divided by the total number of outcomes (6), which equals 3/6 = 50%. Therefore, the correct answer is D. Choice A (16%) is incorrect because it does not represent the probability of rolling an even number. Choice B (33%) is incorrect as it does not reflect the correct probability. Choice C (66%) is incorrect as well since it overestimates the probability.
