Directions: Solve each of the following problems. Write the answer in the corresponding grid on the answer sheet and fill in the ovals beneath each answer you write. Here are some examples. Answer: 3/4 (–.75; show answer either way) Answer : 325 Note: A mixed number such as 3 1/2 must be gridded as 7/2 or as 3.5. If gridded as “3 1/2,” it will be read as “thirty–one halves.” Note: Either position is correct. 1. 2. 3. If 8 3 3 of is added to , what is the result? 8 8 8 6. If 2n–3 = 32 what is the value of n?
