## Answers:

1- **C**

The question is that number 56,743.21 is how many times of number 5.674321. The answer is 10,000.

2- **C **

Lily eats 2 pancakes in 1 minute ⇒ Lily eats \(2×5\) pancakes in 5 minutes.

Ella eats 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) pancakes in 1 minute ⇒ Ella eats 2\(\frac{1}{2}\) \(× 5\) pancakes in 5 minutes.

In total Lily and Ella eat \(10 + 12.5 \)pancakes in 5 minutes.

3- **B **

Alice drives 68 miles in one hour. Therefore, she drives 2600 miles in about \((2600 ÷ 68) 38\) hours.

4- **C**

12 yards \(= 12 × 36 = 432\) inches

4 feet \(= 4 × 12 = 48\) inches

12 yards 4 feet and 2 inches \(= 432\) inches \(+ 48\) inches \(+ 2\) inches\( = 482\) inches

5- **A**

Simplify each option provided using order of operations rules.

\(8 – (–2)+ (–18)=8+2-18=-8 \)

\( 2+(–3)×(–2)=2+6=8\)

\( –6×(–6)+ (–2)×(–12)=36+24=60\)

\( (–2)×(–7)+4=14+4=18\)

6- **C**

To find the answer, subtract 40,907 from 41,053.

\(41,053-40,907=146 \space\) miles

7- **A**

\( \frac{5}{8}× \frac{4}{5}=\frac{5×4}{8×5}=\frac{20}{40}=\frac{1}{2}\)

8- **3360**

Use volume of cube formula.

\( Volume= base × height ⇒ V= 120 × 28 ⇒ V=3,360\)

9- **B**

1 pizza has 8 slices.

18 pizzas contain \((18 × 8) 144\) slices.

10- **B**

Use area of rectangle formula.

\(Area= length × width ⇒ A=\frac{3}{4} × \frac{5}{6} ⇒ A=\frac{5}{8}\space inches\)
