210 Jacks company will award an end-of-the-year bonus to any employee whose total yearly sales represent at least 10% of the companys sales. During the last fiscal year, Jacks sales were a consistent $50,000 for each quarter. However his quarter 1 sales represented 10% of the companys sales. For quarter 2, his sales represented 6% of the companys sales. For quarters 3 & 4 they represented 8% and 30% respectively. Did Jack earn his bonus? Defend your answer.

211 In a recent county election poll, voters in each of the 5 districts were asked whom they support. For each of the 5 counties, 473 voters expressed their support for Mr. James W. Beam: These results represented 19% of voters in District A, and 25%, 18%, 57% and 31% in the other 4 districts. Mr. Beam claims to have the support of 30% of the county. Is he correct? If no, then by how much is he off? Copyright Steve Yurek March 17,

212 Ollie Charles Dickens (known to his friends as OCD) will have a great day if he can average exactly 60 mph on his way to work. The 1 st 6.3 miles are along back roads, while the final 6.3 miles is traveled on straight as an arrow freeway. School buses, wet leaves and a touch of ice slowed the back road portion to only 30 mph. How fast must Mr. OCD travel on the freeway, so that he can have a great day? Copyright Steve Yurek March 17,

213 Each day Violet sells 72 each of 9 fruits: Apples – Oranges – Pears – Plums – Kiwi – Nectarine – Pomegranate – Peaches & Tangellos and respectively they represent 3/4, 2/3, 1/2, 3/5, 3/7, 8/9, 6/13, 9/11 and 1/2 of the amount of each fruit that she bought.

214 The EPA has mandated that, by 2015, the total % of all models of all vehicles produced by any manufacturer must get at least 35 mpg. Four of the 5 models of the Great Wall Auto Corp have tested to get 30 mpg, 38 mpg, 42 mpg and 25 mpg. If they all use the same test track, what must the fuel mileage of the 5 th model be in order for GWAC to be allowed to manufacture automobiles in the US? Copyright Steve Yurek March 17,

215 Periodically the water in Sparkletown is tested for impurities. Recently 7 samples were tested: Four 25 gallon samples from spots near each of the four corners and three 50 gallon samples from varying spots in the middle of the reservoir. The corner samples registered 84%, 87%, 89% and 85% pure, while the center samples had readings of 96%, 99% and 93% pure. On the state report, Sparkletown Public Health reported that the purity rate of the 250 gallons sampled was ________ percent. Copyright Steve Yurek March 17,
