Answers

1. Answer :

To find the total number of books in the library now, add 988 and 250. 

=  988 + 250

=  1238

So, there are 1238 books in the library now. 

2. Answer :

To find the total number of students, add 1056 and 781.

=  1056 + 781

=  1837

So, 1837 students took part in the competition in all.  

3. Answer :

To find the money Jack had initially, add 1025 and 756.

=  1025 + 756

=  1781

So, Jack had $1781 initially.

4. Answer :

Total amount of fabric required for each player :

= 18 + 8

= 26 inches

5. Answer :

Total points scored by Richard in all the three rounds :

= 85 + 92 + 103

= 280

6. Answer :

To find the score for grade A, add 600 and 200.

=  600 + 200

=  800

So, the score for grade A is 800.   

7. Answer :

Number of meatballs sold on Friday : 

=  1257

Number of meatballs sold on Saturday : 

=  1257 + 158

=  1415

Number of meat balls sold on Friday and Saturday altogether : 

=  1257 + 1415

=  2672

So, William sold 2672 meatballs altogether on Friday and Saturday.

8. Answer :

The cost of Brian's camera :

= 225 + 37

= $262

9. Answer :

From 10 A.M. Friday to 10 A.M. Saturday is 24 hours.

From 10 A.M. Saturday to 6 P.M. Saturday is another 8 hours.

Then, total hours is

=  24 + 8

=  32

So, Joey's team danced for a total of 32 hours.

10. Answer :

From 2:15 P.M. to 4:15 P.M. is 2 hours.

From 4:15 P.M. to 4:45 P.M. is another half hour.

Then, the total time is

=  2 hours + 0.5 hours

=  2.5 hours

=  2 hours 30 minutes

So, the drive took him for 2 hours 30 minutes. 

11. Answer :

Distance from place A to place B : 

=  50 miles

Distance from place B to place C : 

=  2 ⋅ (Distance from A to B)

=  2 ⋅ 50 miles

=  100 miles

Distance from place C to place D : 

=  3/4 ⋅ (Distance from C to D)

=  3/4 ⋅ 100 miles

=  3 ⋅ 25

=  75 miles

Total distance (A to D) : 

=  (A to B) + (B to C) + (C to D)

=  50 + 100 + 75

=  225 miles

So, the distance from Place A to place D is 225 miles. 

12. Answer :

Among three numbers which are consecutive multiples of 3, the first number is 12.
