Problem 8 :
In a running race, Kevin reached the target in 2 minutes 5 seconds and lost the first price by 12 seconds. In what time should he have completed the race to get the first price ?
1. Answer :
To find the number of students absent, subtract 23 from 27.
= 27 - 23
So, there were 4 students absent on Tuesday.
2. Answer :
To find the number of books in the library day before yesterday, subtract 76 from 1028.
= 1028 - 76
So, there would have been 952 books in the library day before yesterday.
3. Answer :
To find the number of boys, subtract 423 from 825.
= 825 - 423
So, there were 402 boys in the competition.
4. Answer :
Visualize a number line. The drop from 28° to 0° is 28°. There are still 12 more degrees to drop. They will be below zero. -12°F is the temperature at 11 P.M.
5. Answer :
To find the marks scored by Clark, subtract 75 from 632.
= 632 - 75
So, Clark scored 557 marks.
6. Answer :
Number of meatballs sold on Sunday :
Given : On Monday, 158 less meatballs sold than on Sunday.
Then, number of meatballs sold on Monday :
= 1257 - 158
So, Peterson sold 1099 meatballs on Monday.
7. Answer :
Distance from place X to place Z :
= 183 miles
Distance from place Y to place Z :
= 2/3 ⋅ (Distance from X to Z)
= 2/3 ⋅ 183 miles
= 122 miles
Distance from place X to place Y :
= (Distance from X to Z) - (Distance from Y to Z)
= 183 - 122
= 61 miles
So, the distance from Place X to place Y is 61 miles.
8. Answer :
Actual time taken by Kevin to complete the race :
= 2 min 5 sec
= 120 sec + 5 sec
= 125 seconds
Given : Kevin lost the first price by 12 seconds.
Then, to find the time required to get the first price, subtract 12 from 125.
= 125 - 12
= 113 seconds
So, Kevin should have completed the race in 113 seconds to get the first price.
