Question 1.
Luke walks $$\frac{1}{2}$$ mile each day. Isaiah walks $$\frac{1}{3}$$ mile each day. How many more miles will Luke walk than Isaiah in 18 days?
3.06 more miles Luke walks than Isaiah in 18 days.

Explanation:
Number of miles Luke walks each day = $$\frac{1}{2}$$
Number of miles Isaiah walks each day = $$\frac{1}{3}$$
Difference:
Number of miles Luke walks each day – Number of miles Isaiah walks each day
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ – $$\frac{1}{3}$$
= 0.50 – 0.33
= 0.17.
Number of days = 18.
=> 0.17 Ã— 18
=> 3.06.

Question 2.
Daisy drinks $$\frac{1}{5}$$ quart of juice every day. Her mom buys 15 quarts of juice. If the rest of the family drinks 9 quarts, how many days will it take Daisy to drink the rest?
Number of days it takes Daisy to drink the rest = 30.

Explanation:
Number of quarts of juice every day Daisy drinks = $$\frac{1}{5}$$
Number of quarts of juice her mom buys = 15.
Number of quarts of juice rest of the family drinks = 9.
Number of quarts of juice is left = Number of quarts of juice her mom buys – Number of quarts of juice rest of the family drinks
= 15 – 9
= 6.
Number of days it takes Daisy to drink the rest = Number of quarts of juice is left Ã· Number of quarts of juice every day Daisy drinks
= 6 Ã· $$\frac{1}{5}$$
= 6 Ã— 5
= 30.

Question 3.
Mr. Nelson buys 7 yards of chain that costs $18.39 per yard. Ms. Kennedy buys 8 yards of chain that costs$20.58 per yard. How much more did Ms. Kennedy spend than Mr. Nelson?
$35.91 more Ms. Kennedy spends than Mr. Nelson. Explanation: Number of yards of chain Mr. Nelson buys = 7. Cost of each yard of chain Mr. Nelson buys =$18.39.
Total cost of yards of chain Mr. Nelson buys = Number of yards of chain Mr. Nelson buys Ã— Cost of each yard of chain Mr. Nelson buys
= 7 Ã— $18.39 =$128.73.
Number of yards of chain Ms. Kennedy buys = 8.
Cost of each yard of chain Ms. Kennedy buys = $20.58 Total cost of yards of chain Ms. Kennedy buysÂ = Number of yards of chain Ms. Kennedy buys Ã— Cost of each yard of chain Ms. Kennedy buys = 8 Ã—$20.58
= $164.64. Difference: Total cost of yards of chain Ms. Kennedy buys – Total cost of yards of chain Mr. Nelson buys =$164.64 – $128.73 =$35.91.

Question 4.
Isabella has 42 bracelets and she gave half to her friend Ashley. Then she took $$\frac{1}{3}$$ of her remaining bracelets and gave them to her cousin Elena. How many bracelets does Isabella have left?
Number of bracelets of remaining bracelets now with her = 14.

Explanation:
Number of bracelets Isabella has = 42.
she gave half to her friend Ashley.
=> Number of bracelets she gave to her friend Ashley = Number of bracelets Isabella has Ã· 2
= 42 Ã· 2
= 21.
Number of bracelets of remaining bracelets = Number of bracelets Isabella has –Â  Number of bracelets she gave to her friend Ashley
= 42 – 21
= 21.
Number of remaining bracelets $$\frac{1}{3}$$ she took and gave them to her cousin Elena.
=> Number of bracelets she gave to her cousin Elena = Number of bracelets of remaining bracelets Ã— $$\frac{1}{3}$$
= 21 Ã— $$\frac{1}{3}$$
= 7.
Number of bracelets of remaining bracelets now with her = Number of bracelets of remaining bracelets – Number of bracelets she gave to her cousin Elena
= 21 – 7
= 14.
