The sum of two consecutive even integers is 226. What is the larger number? A. 114
B. 116
C. 112
D. 118

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: First, assign a variable that you're looking for.

Let x = the larger number
Then x - 1 = the smaller number

The sum of x and x - 2 will equal to 226.

x + x - 1 = 226
2x - 1 = 226
2x = 228
x = 114

So, the smaller number is 112 and the larger number is 114.

A bank teller notices that an account was overdrawn and had a balance that can be represented by-324. The account holder then deposited 3 checks for $150 each and made 4 withdrawals of $20 each. The teller used the steps below to find the new balance for the account. Step 1- start: -$324
Deposits: $150 each
Withdrawals: -$20 each

Step 2- -324+3(150)+4(-20)

Step 3- -324+450-80=46

Step 4- the account is overdrawn by $46

In which step did the teller make the first error?

4 Select the correct answer. Read this excerpt from a leaflet that the United States circulated in Japan in 1945. Then answer the question that follows. The Soviet Union, because of this rejection on the part of the military, has notified your Ambassador Sato that it has declared war on your nation. Thus, all powerful countries of the world are now at war with you. Also, because of your leaders' refusal to accept the surrender declaration that would enable Japan to honorably end this useless war, we have employed our atomic bomb. A single one of our newly developed atomic bombs is actually the equivalent in explosive power to what 2000 of our giant B-29s could have carried on a single mission. Radio Tokyo has told you that with the first use of this weapon of total destruction, Hiroshima was virtually destroyed. Before we use this bomb again and again to destroy every resource of the military by which they are prolonging this useless war, petition the emperor now to end the war. Our president has outlined for you the thirteen consequences of an honorable surrender. We urge that you accept these consequences and begin the work of building a new, better, and peace-loving Japan. Based on the excerpt, which sentence best summarizes the Allies reason for using the atomic bomb on Japan? A. The United States wanted to make Japan surrender before the Soviets arrived. B. Japan was prolonging a terrible and bloody war that had an inevitable outcome. C. An atomic bomb caused damage more efficiently than B-29 bombers. D. Nations that failed to surrender to the Allies were asking for a nuclear attack.
