Check your figures – Choice D, 1.2 is correct. You are missing a decimal point. .84 ÷ .7 = 1.2

Ok 4) is not c. Its d

• May 5, 2017

Yes – #4 is C 4.7 + .9 + .01 = 5.61

• February 14, 2018

3 calculators and the internet claim you are incorrect
5.7 being the correct answer to Question#4

please explain how exactly is it you get 5.61

• February 15, 2018

lets see – the question is – notice that .9 equals 0.9 and .01 equals 0.01 – that makes it easier to keep straight
Questions is – 4.7 + .9 + .01

Take the first part – 4.7 + 0.9 = 5.6

5.6 + 0.01 = 5.61 Choice C is correct

Why for number 6 the decimal is moved only once and for number 5 the decimal is all the way in the front?

• November 7, 2017

One is multiplication and one is division

• March 23, 2018

For #5, count the digits behind the decimal place in the question, this will tell you where to place the decimal place in the answer. For #6, you only need to move the decimal one place over for the the denominator to be devisable by the numerator (7 goes into 8)
