1. Solve Equations Word Problems

2. A school has \$6500 budgeted for textbooks. The principal wants to buy 120 new geography textbooks for \$39.95 each. How much money will be left in the textbook budget after the purchase?

3. Use the formula I = prt • Find the interest after two years at 5% with a principal deposit of \$1000.

4. Use I = prt • How much would need to be deposited to gain an interest of \$75 at a rate of 3% over five years?

5. Money • Mr. Thomsen plans to purchase a used car priced at \$8400. He will receive a 15% employee discount and then will have to pay a 5.5% sales tax. What will be the final price of the car?

6. Average • Bill Gutierrez drove at a speed of 65mph for two hours. He then drove for 1.5 hours at a speed of 45mph. What was his average speed?

7. Mixtures • Chocolate chip cookies sell for \$6.95 per pound and white chocolate cookies for \$5.95 per pound. How many pounds of chocolate chip cookies should be mixed with 4 pounds of white chocolate cookies to obtain a mixture that sells for \$6.75 per pound.

8. D=RT • Two cyclists begin traveling in opposite directions on a circular bike trail that is 5 miles long. One cyclist travels 12 miles per hour, and the other travels 18 miles per hour. How long will it be before they meet?

9. #13 on homework • In Mrs. Martinez’s science class, a test is worth three times as much as a quiz. If a student has test grades of 85 and 92 and quiz grades of 82, 75, and 95, what is the student’s average grade?

10. Number 14 • At Westbridge High School, a student’s grade point average is based on the student’s grade and the classs credit rating. Brittany’s grades for this quarter are shown. Find Brittany’s GPA if a grade of A equals 4 and a B equals 3.
