1. What is the result of 0.003 x 4.23?
- A. 0.01269
- B. 0.01029
- C. 0.01419
- D. 0.01329
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To find the product of 0.003 and 4.23, multiply the two numbers: 0.003 x 4.23 = 0.01269. Therefore, the correct answer is A, 0.01269. Choice B, 0.01029, is incorrect as it is the result of a different calculation. Choice C, 0.01419, is incorrect because it is not the product of 0.003 and 4.23. Choice D, 0.01329, is also incorrect as it does not represent the correct multiplication result.
2. Imaginary unit multiples are used to represent numbers that cannot be obtained on the number line. Which of the following is equivalent to 5i?
- A. -5
- B. i^5
- C. 5√-1
- D. 1/5i
Correct answer: C
Rationale: Rationale: - The imaginary unit, denoted as "i," is defined as the square root of -1. - Therefore, 5i can be expressed as 5 times the square root of -1, which is equivalent to 5√-1. - Option A, -5, is a real number and not an imaginary unit multiple. - Option B, i^5, is equal to i because i raised to any power that is a multiple of 4 results in 1, and i^5 is equivalent to i. - Option D, 1/5i, is the reciprocal of 5i and not equivalent to 5i.
3. Joe makes $20 an hour and Tim makes $30 an hour. How many more hours than Tim must Joe work to earn the same amount that Tim makes in 4 hours?
- A. 1 hour
- B. 2 hours
- C. 3 hours
- D. 4 hours
Correct answer: B
Rationale: To earn the same amount that Tim makes in 4 hours, Tim earns $30 per hour, totaling $120 in 4 hours. Joe earns $20 per hour, so to match Tim's earnings in 4 hours, Joe must work 2 hours more than Tim. Therefore, Joe needs to work 2 hours more than Tim to earn the same amount that Tim makes in 4 hours. Choices A, C, and D are incorrect as they do not accurately reflect the additional hours Joe needs to work compared to Tim to earn the same amount in 4 hours.
4. After the young mother goes shopping and spends $101.85 on groceries, $21.90 at the dry cleaners, and $42.66 at the pet store, she has $200.00 in cash. How much money would she have left after her day of shopping?
- A. $33.59
- B. $29.59
- C. $25.59
- D. $21.59
Correct answer: A
Rationale: The correct answer is A, $33.59. To find out how much money she would have left, we need to calculate the total spending by adding the amounts spent at the groceries, dry cleaners, and pet store: $101.85 + $21.90 + $42.66 = $166.41. Subtract the total spending from the initial cash amount to determine the remaining cash: $200.00 - $166.41 = $33.59. Choice B, $29.59, is incorrect as it does not accurately reflect the correct calculation. Choices C and D, $25.59 and $21.59 respectively, are also incorrect as they do not consider the correct total spending amount and subtraction from the initial cash.
5. What is the result of subtracting 7 7/10 from 3 4/5?
- A. 3 9/10
- B. 4
- C. 3
- D. 5
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To subtract 7 7/10 from 3 4/5, first convert 3 4/5 to have the same denominator as 7 7/10. Converting 4/5 to 8/10, the subtraction becomes 7 7/10 - 3 8/10. Subtracting, 7 - 3 = 4 and 7/10 - 8/10 = -1/10. Therefore, the result is 3 4/5 - 7 7/10 = 3 9/10. Choices B, C, and D are incorrect because they do not reflect the correct subtraction of fractions and whole numbers in this scenario.
