If Sally can paint the house in 4 hours, then in 1 hour she can paint 1/4 of the house.

3.Employees of a discount appliance store receive an additional 20% off of the lowest price on an item. If an employee purchases a dishwasher during a 15% off sale, how much will he pay if the dishwasher originally cost $450?
A. $280.90
B. $287
C. $292.50
D. $306
E. $333.89
R/
Original cost: $450
.
15% off original cost:
450 - .15(450)
= 450(1-.15)
= 450(.85)

= $382.5
.
addition20% discount for employee:
382.5 - .20(382.5)
= 382.5(1-.20)
= 382.5(.80)
= $306

4. The sales price of a car is $12,590, which is 20% off the original price. What is the original price?

6. If Leah is 6 yearsolder than Sue, and John is 5 years older than Leah, and the total of their ages is 41. Then how old is Sue?
A. 8
B. 10
C. 14
D. 19
E. 21
R/
Leah = 6+x
Sue = x
John = 5+(6+x)
Total sum = 41

6+x+x+5+6+x=41
3x+17=41

3x=24
x=8

8+6=14
14+5=19

Hence, Sue is 8 years old, Leah is 14 years old and John is 19 years old.

This is a problem involving "weighted"grades. You solve it by multiplying the credit for
a course times the numerical value of the grade received, then adding up all the credits
and dividing it into the sum of all the grade products.
.
Hard to explain, but easy to do.
.
Art .......... 2 credit hours times B (3 points) = 6 grade points
History ...... 3 credit hours times A (4 points) = 12 grade points
Science ...... 4 credithours times C (2 points) = 8 grade points
Mathematics .. 3 credit hours times B (3 points) = 9 grade points
Science Lab .. 1 credit hour times A (4 points) = 4 grade points
.
Now add up all the credit hours (2 + 3 + 4 + 3 + 1 = 13 hours)
Then add up all the grade points earned (6 + 12 + 8 + 9 + 4 = 39 grade points)
.
Finally divide the credit hours into the grade points and you have the...
