Sample Question: The total cost of 100 pencils purchased at a constant rate is $39.00. What is the unit price?

  1. $39.00
  2. $3.90
  3. $0.39
  4. $0.039

Answer Explanation: Unit price means price per one unit. Therefore, we need to know the price per pencil.

Since the price of the pencils is defined to be a constant rate, then the total cost ($39.00) divided by the total number of pencils (100) will give us the cost per pencil (or per unit).

$39.00 / 100 = $0.39 per pencil

The unit price is $0.39.

The correct answer is $0.39.

Sample Question: Which of the following is the result of the indicated operation?

649 5/8 – 72 3/4 =

  1. 577 1/8
  2. 577 3/8
  3. 576 7/8
  4. 576 1/4

Answer Explanation: 649 5/8 – 72 3/4 = 649 5/8 – 72 3/4 = 649 5/8 – 72 6/8 =

Since 6/8 cannot be subtracted from 5/8, we must rewrite 649 5/8 as 648 13/8.

Now we have 648 13/8 – 72 6/8 = 576 7/8

576 7/8 is the correct answer.

Sample Question: Brian’s dad told him that he needed to cultivate 10 rows in the garden before he could take a break. The rows were x + 2y feet long. What was the total length of ground that he needed to cultivate?

  1. 10x + 20y feet
  2. 10x + 2y feet
  3. (x + 2y) / 10 feet
  4. x/10 + y/5 feet

Answer Explanation: Brian had to cultivate 10(x + 2y) ft = 10x + 20y ft

10x + 20y feet is the correct answer.
