#### How many canceled flights have Heathrow Airport missed if they had a goal of cutting back on canceled flights by 80% by March?

Explanation

Step 1: Take the number of flights canceled in January and calculate an 80% reduction:

30 × (1-0.8) = 6

Step 2: Subtract this figure from the March figure:

10 - 6 = 4

#### How many more flights were canceled at Stanstead between November and December and January and February, on average?

Explanation

Step 1: Calculate the number of flights cancelled in November and December:

Nov + Dec = 15 + 10 = 25

Step 2: Calculate the number of flights cancelled in January and February:

Jan + Feb = 35 + 45 = 80

Step 3: Subtract the Jan / Feb figure from the Nov / Dec figure and divide by the Nov / Dec figure:

(80 - 25) ÷ 25 x 100 = 220%

#### A 13:00 appointment with an agent is scheduled at a Manchester Football Ground. She intends to take a taxi from Manchester Coach or Train Station, which are each 25 and 35 minutes distant from each other in a taxi. Which single-ticket travel option is the cheapest if the agent needs to depart London between 09:30 and 10:00?

Explanation

Step 1 – Work backward from the taxi journey

Agent must leave Manchester’s coach/train station by coach/train

Step 2 – Which coach/train travel option(s) arrives before 12:25/12:35 respectively?

The 09:10 and 09:30 coach departures both arrive too late

The 09:20 train departure arrives in time at 11:50 and is cheaper than the 9.00 train, Thus the correct answer is, the 09:20 train departure

#### How many of the canceled flights in February originated from Gatwick Airport?

Explanation

Step 1: Divide the number of flights cancelled in Gatwick by the total number of cancelled flights across the 3 airports in February:

20 / (15+20+45) x 100

= 25%

#### How many flights were canceled at Gatwick Airport in November as a percentage of all the flights canceled at all three airports that month?

Explanation

Step 1: The question asks for the ratio of the flights canceled at Gatwick airport vs the other airports combined. Start by writing them down in a ratio format:

20 : (30 + 20 + 15)

20: 65

Step 2: Divide 65 by 20 to calculate the ratio:

65 ÷ 20 = 3.25

1: 3.25

#### How much would two round-trip tickets for the quickest coach trip with breakfast cost in total?

Explanation

Step 1 – Calculate the time taken for each of the coach journeys that serves breakfast.

Departures:

06:30 and 08:00 take 3 hrs 15 mins;

09:10 and 09:30 departures take 3 hours 20 mins;

10:00 departure takes 3 hours and 5 mins

Step 2 – Calculate the total cost for two return tickets

10:00 departure; 2 x £85

Thus the correct answer is, £170

#### To the closest mile per hour, what is the difference between the average speeds of the 07:50 and 10:30 train departures? (The distance covered was 164 miles)

Explanation

Step 1 – Calculate the Time taken for the 2 train journeys between London and Manchester:

07:50 train: 2 hours 15 mins = 2.250 hours

10:30 train: 2 hours 25 mins = 2.417 hours

Step 2 – put figures into the formula: Average speed = Distance / Time taken

Average speed = 164 miles / Time taken = miles per hour

07:50 train: 164 miles / 2.250 = 72.9 mph

10:30 train: 164 miles / 2.417 = 67.9 mph

Difference between the two = 72.9 - 67.9 = 5mph

Thus the correct answer is, 5 mph
