A triathlon course includes a 900m swim, a 35.1km bike ride, and a 2.39km run. What is the total length of the race course?
38.39m

937.49m

937.49km

38.39km

SOLUTION
This is a simple addition problem with the caveat that you need to first convert the swim distance from meters (m) to kilometers (km) before adding it to the bike ride and run distances. To convert 900 meters to kilometers divide it by 1000 to get 0.90 then add the remaining distances: 0.90 + 35.1 + 2.39 = 38.39km. You could also convert the bike and run distances to meters and then add the swim distance but that requires two conversions instead of one. Not only does doing just one conversion save you time it also minimizes the steps needed to complete this problem and therefore reduces the chances for a calculation mistake.

Connie scored 41.43% on her final exam. If each question was worth 4 points and there were 280 possible points on the exam, how many questions did Connie get right?
164

116

29

41

SOLUTION
Connie scored 41.43% on the test meaning she earned 41.43% of the possible points on the test. There were 280 possible points on the test so she earned 280 x 0.4143 = 116 points. Each question is worth 4 points so she got 116 4 = 29 questions right.

If the ratio of home fans to visiting fans in a crowd is 2:1 and all 35,000 seats in a stadium are filled, how many home fans are in attendance?
11,550

17,500

17,500

23,450

SOLUTION
A ratio of 2:1 means that there are 2 home fans for every one visiting fan so of every 3 fans, 2 are home fans. So, 2 of every fan in the stadium is a home fan. 2 = 0.67 which, when multiplied by the number of fans in attendance, gives the number of home fans in the stadium: 0.67 x 35,000 = 23,450

What's the next number in the series {94, 58, 31, 13, ?}
13

22

-5

SOLUTION
This series is formed by taking the last number in the series and subtracting decreasing multiples of 9: 58 = 94 - (4 x 9) 31 = 58 - (3 x 9) 13 = 31 - (2 x 9) So, the next number in the series is 13 - (1 x 9) = 4.

Sam's sports card collection contains football, baseball, and basketball cards. If the ratio of football to baseball cards is 9 to 2 and the ratio of baseball to basketball cards is 9 to 1, what is the ratio of football to basketball cards?
18:3

9:1

81:2

99:2

SOLUTION
The ratio of football cards to baseball cards is 9:2 and the ratio of baseball cards to basketball cards is 9:1. To solve this problem, we need the baseball card side of each ratio to be equal so we need to rewrite the ratios in terms of a common number of baseball cards. (Think of this like finding the common denominator when adding fractions.) The ratio of football to baseball cards can also be written as 81:18 and the ratio of baseball cards to basketball cards as 18:2 so the ratio of football cards to baskeball cards is 81:2.
