4 500 cubic cm = 4 500 divided by
1 000 = 4.5 litres
Capacity of water (3/4 full) =
3/4 x 4.5/1 = 13.5/4 = 3.375
Answer: 3.375 litres
44. Cost of 2 sandwiches =
2 x $8.50 = $17.00
Total cost =
$17 + $4.20 + $2 = $23.20
45. a. Profit = $600 - $480 = $120
Percentage profit =
Profit/original x 100/1 % =
$120/$480 x 100/1 % =
b. Tax = 15/100 x $600/1 =
Price after tax =
$600 + $90 = $690
46. WORK BACKWARDS (do opposite)
$850 - $25 = $825
Bill with service charge = 110% =
1% = $825/110
Bil before service charge = 100% =
$825/110 x 100/1 =
$82500/110 = $750

fers customers fabulous bargains while

Practice Exercise #1
(Sample Paragraph) "The most exciting
holiday trip I ever experienced"
Don't you just love it when holiday time
comes around? I especially enjoyed the
last Easter vacation period because it al-
lowed me the great opportunity to visit
many of my relatives and friends whom
I do not usually see often during the
school term. I was able to spend a short
time with my cousins and grand parents
in the country. We enjoyed hunting for
crabs and other fishes. How awesome it
is to suck a juicy fruit just plucked from
the tree.! My short holiday, there, ended
when all of us gathered for a delicious,
night time barbeque around a warm,
inviting camp fire. I hope that all of you,
sometime, get the chance to experience
a similar, pleasurable trip as I did last

Saturdays"! In this most appealing story,
each child in the family was given a

money together. Their decision would

we saw a strangely dressed woman
who entered the store and quickly

milk formula powder and put it into
her large purse.
6. Why did this happen?
(Just before she left the store, how-
ever, the woman turned suddenly
and started to take the milk from in-
side her purse to return it to the
shelf. The store manager spotted her
and questioned her about her ac-
tions. She told him that she had re-
cently lost her job but desperately
needed to feed her newly born baby.
Not having enough money to pur-
chase the milk, she told the manager
that she had no choice but to steal it.
The manager was sympathetic to-
wards her and so after scolding her,
told her that because of her honesty
she could have the milk and he would
allow her to pay a reduced cost of it,
part by part, some time in the future.
