When two objects are balanced on a lever, their distances from the fulcrum are inversely proportional to their weights. The greater the weight, the less distance it should be from the fulcrum in order to maintain balance. If an 10kg mass is placed 2.0 meters from the fulcrum, how far should a 40kg mass be placed from the fulcrum in order to balance the lever? 0.5 m 2 m 1 m none of the above
The formula relates the time t in minutes that it takes to cook an averagesize potato in an oven that is at an altitude of a thousands of feet. Calculate the time it takes to cook a potato at an altitude of 3000 feet. 40.5 min 27.5 min 40.5 min 18.9 min
It took 309 days for the Mars Global Surveyor to travel 466,000,000 miles from Earth to Mars. What was the speed of the spacecraft in miles per hour? Round to the nearest 1 decimal place. 60,000 mi/hour 62,837.1 mi/hour 1,508,090.6 mi/hour 62,837.1 mi/day none of the above
While traveling in Canada, I bought some gifts to bring home. I bought three tshirts that cost $25.95 (Canadian). If the exchange rate at the time was 1 US dollar for 1.37 Canadian dollars, how much did I spend in US dollars? $35.55 $18.94 $25.95  none of the above

Standard(s)  Solving Rational Equations  12.9
 CC.912.A.CED.1 Create equations that describe numbers or relationship. Create equations and inequalities in one variable and use them to solve problems. Include equations arising from linear and quadratic functions, and simple rational and exponential functions.
 CC.912.A.REI.11 Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically. Explain why the xcoordinates of the points where the graphs of the equations y = f(x) and y = g(x) intersect are the solutions of the equation f(x) = g(x); find the solutions approximately, e.g., using technology to graph the functions, make tables of values, or find successive approximations. Include cases where f(x) and/or g(x) are linear, polynomial, rational, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic functions.
 CC.912.A.REI.2 Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning. Solve simple rational and radical equations in one variable, and give examples showing how extraneous solutions may arise.
 Dividing Polynomials  12.5
 CC.912.A.APR.6 Rewrite rational expressions. Rewrite simple rational expressions in different forms; write a(x)/b(x) in the form q(x) + r(x)/b(x), where a(x), b(x), q(x), and r(x) are polynomials with the degree of r(x) less than the degree of b(x), using inspection, long division, or, for the more complicated examples, a computer algebra system.
Mathematical Practice(s)  #1  Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
 #2  Reason abstractly and quantitatively
 #4  Model with mathematics
 #5  Use appropriate tools strategically
 #7  Look for and make use of structure
