754.41.

so the Louganis’s winning final score = 754.41.

Question 4.

Driver Buddy Baker (Oldsmobile, 1980) holds the record for the fastest winning speed in the Daytona 500. His speed was 177.602 miles per hour. Bill Elliott (Ford, 1987) has the second-fastest winning speed. Elliott’s speed was 1.339 miles per hour slower than Baker’s speed.

What was Elliott’s speed? _______

Answer:

The speed of Elliott’s = 176.263 miles per hour.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Daytona speed was 177.602 miles per hour.

Elliott’s speed was 1.339 miles per hour slower than Baker’s speed.

177.602 – 1.339 = 176.263 miles.

Decimal Operations

Margaret is making a pair of purple pajama pants for her daughter Marie.

To figure out how much purple fabric she needs, Margaret must do the following:

- Measure the length from Marie’s waist to her ankle.
- Double this measurement.
- Add 12 inches.

Question 1.

From waist to ankle, Marie measures 33 inches.

How many inches of the purple fabric does Margaret need? ____

Answer:

The purple fabric does Margaret needs = 78 inches.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

from waist to ankle, Marie measures 33 inches.

33 + 33 = 66.

66 + 12 = 78 inches.

so the purple fabric does Margaret needs = 78 inches.

Question 2.

Cloth is sold in yards. How many yards of purple fabric will Margaret buy? Explain why your answer makes sense.

Answer:

so the number of yards of purple fabric will Margaret buy = 1.56 yds.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

1 inch = 0.02 yds.

78 x 0.02 = 1.56.

so the number of yards of purple fabric will Margaret buy = 1.56 yds.

Question 3.

The purple fabric costs $5.50 per yard. The tax added to Margaret’s bill is $1.23. How much does Margaret spend on the fabric?

____ Show your work.

Answer:

The Margaret spend on the fabric = $6.73.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

The purple fabric costs $5.50 per yard.

The tax added to Margaret’s bill is $1.23.

$5.50 + $ 1.23 = $6.73.

so the Margaret spend on the fabric = $6.73.

Question 4.

Margaret pays with a $20 bill. How much change does she receive? ___

Answer:

The change does she receive = $13.27.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,
