#### A box of staples measures 6 cm long, 7 cm wide, and has a volume of 378 cm cubed. I'm curious about the box's height.

Explanation:

When the height is set to Y, the volume is calculated as the product of the length, width, and height: 6 x 7 x Y = 378. 378 / 42 = Y = 9 can be rearranged in this way.

#### There are three times as many girls as boys in a physical education class. The girls average 18 points per person in a class basketball game, and the class as a whole averages 17 points per person. On average, how many points does each boy get?

Explanation:

There are three times as many females as boys in the class, it is 75 percent girls and 25% boys. We solve the following equation to obtain the average amount of points each boy receives: 0.75*18 + 0.25*X = 17, where X is the average number of points scored by each boy. When you solve for X, you get X = 14, which means the boys score 14 points every game on average.

#### Johnny works as an auto mechanic. He earns $8.50 per hour + $3 for each oil change he completes. He spent 36 hours last week and completed 17 oil changes. What was his net worth?

Explanation:

The base wage for Johnny is calculated by multiplying his hourly wage by the number of hours he worked: $8.50 x 36 = 306.

His oil-change bonus is computed by multiplying the payout per oil change by the number of oil changes completed:

17 multiplied by three equals 51. After then, the two goods can be combined.

#### Randy has eight ties, six pairs of slacks, and four formal shirts in his wardrobe. How many days could he go without wearing the same outfit with these three pieces?

Explanation:

#### How much would two feet of rope cost if three inches of rope costed seven cents?

8 x 7 = 56.

#### Arman is getting ready to embark on a 500-mile road trip. His mechanic advises him to purchase a special highway engine oil that will save him 50 cents for 25 miles driven. This new oil, on the other hand, will set you back $20. Is it worth it for Arman to purchase the oil if he has a coupon for a $4 discount?

Explanation:

By using the oil, Arman will save just $10 (.5 x (500 / 25)), which is still $6 less than the cost of the oil.

#### Which of the digits 3899, 629, 89001, and 9867 indicates the smallest amount?
