**1/ 3 + 2 + 4 x 7 = 53
2/ a) 7 x 2 = 14 words b) 14 x 60 = 840 c) 840 x (3 + 2 + 4 = 9) = 7 560 words
3/ 53 x 4 / 10 = 21.2 = 22 batteries
4/ 500 / 16 = 31.25
5/ 60 x 60 / 45 x 2 = 160
6/ 5 x 10 – 24 = space for 26 documents = 2.6 discs
7/ a) One part = 450 / 6 = 75; Therefore 75 : 150 : 225 b) 75 / 450 = 1 / 6 th c) 150 / 450 = 1 / 3 = 0.3 r d) 225 / 450 = 0.5 = 50%
8/ 25 x 2 x 4 x 3 = 600 days / 7 = 85.7 weeks
9/ 7 x 4 = 28 / 3.4 = 8.23
10/ 57 – (57 / 100 x 78 = 44.46) = 12.54 hours**
