For the first 44 hours of labor in a week, King is paid $616, and for any further hours, he is paid 1.5 times his regular hourly rate. King requires $826 this week to cover his rent, bills, and other expenses. How many hours must he work this week to make enough money?
Correct answer: 54
he amount of money that king earns for one hour: $616/44=$14
Number of additional hours that he work to make enough money is: $826−$616/1.5×$14=10
Number of total hours is: 44+10=54

What are the answers to the following system of equations?
3y = x – 2
y = -2x + 4
Correct answer: x = 2, y = 0

On a number line, arrange the numbers in the following order (least to greatest).
Correct answer: 1.35, 1.8, √5, 2.5
If we change the numbers all to the same accuracy, it is easier to order them on the number line.
Write 1.8 as 1.80, 2.5 as 2.50 and √5 as >2 because 2²=4 and < 2.5 because 2.5²=6.25.
Then, the correct order is 1.35, 1.8, √5, 2.5.
