###### Question:

## Answers

1 gallon = 128 fluid ounces

2.5 gallons = 2.5 x 128 = 320 fluid ounces

Steve's boat uses 50 fluid ounce of fuel to 1 fluid ounce of oil, thus

for 320 fluid ounce of fuel it will use 320/50 = 6.4 fluid ounce of oil.

1) Convert the following measurements.

a. 2 cubic yards to cubic feet

1 cubic yard > 27 cubic feet

2 X

x=2*27=54 cubic feet

b. 135 cubic feet to cubic yards

1 cubic yard > 27 cubic feet

x 135

x=135/27=5 cubic yard

c. 6,912 cubic feet to cubic inches

1 cubic feet > 1728 cubic inches

6912 cubic feet x

x=11943936 cubic inches

d. 279,936 cubic inches to cubic feet

1 cubic feet > 1728 cubic inches

x 279,936 cubic inches

x=162 cubic feet

2) Solve the following addition problem. Remember to carry as necessary.

7 cu. yd. 9 cu. ft. 134 cu. in. + 1 cu. yd. 12 cu. ft. 200 cu. in.

7 cu. yd

9 cu. ft > 9/27=0.33333 cu yd

134 cu. in> 134*2.1433e-5=0.00287

1 cu. yd

12 cu. ft 12/27=0.44444 cu yd

200 cu. in200*2.1433e-5=0.00429 cu yd

(7+0.33333+0.00287)+(1+0.44444+0.00429)=8.78493 cu yd

3 Solve the following subtraction problem. Remember to borrow as necessary.

9 cu. yd. 113 cu. in. – 4 cu. ft. 129 cu. in.

9 cu yd

113 cu in113*2.1433e-5=0.00242 cu yd

4 cu. ft4/27=0.14814 cu yd

129 cu. in129*2.1433e-5=.00276

(9+0.00242)-(0.14814+.00276)=8.85152 cu yd

4 Solve the following multiplication problem.

11 cu. yd. 17 cu. in. × 135

11 cu yd

17 cu in17*2.1433e-5=0.00036 cu yd

(11+0.00036)*135=1485.0486 cu yd

5 What’s the capacity of a 3 cubic foot carton in cubic inches?

3 cu feet> 3*1728=5184 cu in

6 The Great Pyramid was built in Egypt more than 4,000 years ago. It was built by King Khufu, or Cheops, who intended to use it as a tomb. The pyramid contains about 2,300,000 blocks of stone, each weighing 2 1⁄2 tons. Can you calculate the approximate total weight of the Great Pyramid, in pounds?

2 1/2=(4+1)/2=5/2=2.5

weight=2,300,000*2.5=5750000 ton> *2204.62=12676565000 lb

7 Convert the following liquid measures.

a. 5 gallons to pints *8=40 pints

b. 128 tablespoons to fluid ounces *0.5=64 fluid onces

c. 93 pints to quarts *0.5=46.5 quarts

d. 13 quarts to cups ---*4=52 cups

e. 69 teaspoons to tablespoons*0.3333=23 tablespoons

f. 112 cups to gallons*0.0625= 7 gallons

g. 18 fluid ounces to teaspoons*6=108 teaspoons

h. 3 gallons to fluid ounces*128= 384 ounces

8 A local dairy farmer collects 490 gallons of milk a day from his cows. He keeps 1⁄35 of the milk for his own use, and sells the rest. Each quart of milk sells for 35 cents. In dollars, how much does he earn from selling his milk each day? (There are 100 cents in a dollar.)

(34/35)*490=476 gallons to sell> *4=1904 quarts

1904*0.35=666.40 dollars

9 A swimming pool has a capacity of 1,386 cubic feet. One gallon of water will fill 231 cubic inches of space. How many gallons of water will it take to fill the entire pool? (Hint: Convert the capacity of the pool to cubic inches first.)

1,386 cubic feet> *1728=2395008 cu in

1 gallons will fill > 231 cu in of space

x 2395008 cu in

x= 10368 gallons

10 The instructions on a bottle of laundry detergent tell you to add two capfuls of detergent to each gallon of water. One capful of detergent is equal to about one tablespoon. If your washing machine holds 11 gallons of water, how many tablespoons of detergent will you need to add? How many fluid ounces of detergent?

2 capfuls of detergent> 1 gallon of water> 2 tablespoon

11 > X

x=11*2=22 tablespoon

22 tablespoon> *0.5=11 fluid onces

11 Convert the following dry measurements.

a. 11 bushels to quarts *37,2367=409.60 quarts

b. 3 pecks to pints*18.6184=55.85 pints

c. 97 quarts to bushels *0.02685=2.6044 bushels

1 peck> *0.25=0.25 bushel

12 apple pies > 1 bushel

x0.25 bushel

x=0.25*12=3 apple pies

13 Mr. Osaka sprinkles 1.694 pints of dry, powdered plant food on his garden three times a year. In quarts, what’s the total amount of plant food he uses in one year?

1.694 pints*3=5082 pints in one year> *0.5=2541 quarts

128x2.5= 320

320/50=6.4

needs 6.4 fluid ounces of oil

160 * 8 = 1280 ounces. 1280/64 = 20 half gallons 20*1/2= 10 So you have 20 half gallons or 10 gallons.

1 cup

Step-by-step explanation:

a) 40 pints b) 64 ounces c) 46.5 quarts d) 52 cups e) 23 tablespoons f) 7 gallons g) 108 teaspoons h) 384 fluid ounces

Step-by-step explanation:

a. 5 gallons to pints

1 pint = 0.125 gallons

x pint = 5 gallons

Cross multiply

0.125x = 5

x = 40 pints

b. 128 tablespoons to fluid ounces

1 ounce = 2 tablespoon

x ounce = 128 tablespoons

Cross multiply

2x = 128

x = 64 ounces

c. 93 pints to quarts

1 quart = 2 pint

x quart = 93 pints

Cross multiply

2x = 93

x = 46.5 quarts

d. 13 quarts to cups

1 cup = 0.25 quart

x cup = 13 quarts

Cross multiply

0.25x = 13

x = 52 cups

e. 69 teaspoons to tablespoons

1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons

x tablespoons = 69 teaspoons

Cross multiply

3x = 69

x = 23 tablespoons

f. 112 cups to gallons

1 cup = 0.0625 gallons

112 cups = x gallons

Cross multiply

x = 112 x 0.0625

x = 7 gallons

g. 18 fluid ounces to teaspoons

1 teaspoon = 0.166667 ounces

x teaspoon = 18 fluid ounces

Cross multiply

0.166667x = 18

x = 108 teaspoons

h. 3 gallons to fluid ounces

1 gallon = 128 fluid ounces

3 gallons = x fluid ounces

Cross multiply

x = 128 x 3

x = 384 fluid ounces
