Four members of the Johnson family took a trip from Pittsburgh to Harrisburg, a distance of 221 miles. It took them 4 hours and 15 minutes to make the trip. The car required 13 gallons of gasoline at $1.25 per gallon. The turnpike toll was $6.50, and they spent $12.84 for food. What was the average cost per mile based on the total expenses of gas, food and tolls for this trip?
Encourage students to EXPLAIN their work - not DESCRIBE it
“I multiplied $1.25 and 13 and got $16.25”
“I multiplied the price of gas per gallon and the number of gallons to get the price for the gas used.”
Three item types are included in the Math ARMT +.
Multiple-choice, gridded, and open-ended items assess student performance on the ARMT + in mathematics.
Multiple-choice items and gridded items carry a point value of 1, while open-ended items carry a point value of 3.
