21.Two planes X and Y are 180 miles apart and moving from opposite direction at a

rate of 20 and 30 miles per hour respectively. How many miles is covered by the

slower plane when they intersect?

1. 50 miles 3. 90 miles 5. 80 miles

2. 72 miles 4. 60 miles

Solution: Si3ce the will i:st i3tersect each other, the 180 mi. will i:st be /ivi/e/ by the two

pla3es. We ca3 :se ratio a3/ proportio3, the /ista3ce covere/ by X will be /5 o1 the 180mi. a3/

Y will be 3/5 o1 the 180mi. /5 o1 180 ÷ 7mi.

180 miles

Logic:

1. The whole /ista3ce 180mi. will be covere/ by A a3/ B. at the rate o1 A¹B or 50 mi/hr.

. Si3ce o3ly A`s /ista3ce was aske/, 0 o:t o1 the 50 mi/hr rate was covere/ by A.

23.4º of 510 lbs. Of sea water is salt. How much pure water is to be extracted to make

it contain 17º salt?

1. 0 lbs. 3. 397 lbs. 5. 90lbs.

2. 390 lbs. 4. 107.1 lbs.

Solution:

4° o1 510 bs is salt, mea3i3g, 0.4 lbs are salt.

Whe3 wo:l/ 0.4 lbs salt be 17° o1 the Sea Water

A3swer: 0.4/0.17 ÷ whe3 the Sea Water is 10lbs.

Question: How m:ch p:re water is to be extracte/ to make it co3tai3 17° salt

Answer: 510 10 lbs ÷ 390 lbs.
