Question 4.

Tom and Linda stand at point A. Linda begins to walk in a straight line away from Tom at a constant rate of 2 miles per hour. One hour later, Tom begins to jog in a straight line in the exact opposite direction at a constant rate of 6 miles per hour.

Question 5.

It takes the high-speed train x hours to travel the z miles from Town A to Town B at a constant rate, while it takes the regular train y hours to travel the same distance at a constant rate. If the high-speed train leaves Town A for Town B at the same time that the regular train leaves Town B for Town A, how many more miles will the high-speed train have traveled than the regular train when the two trains pass each other?

Question 6.

The ‘moving walkway’ is a 300-foot long conveyor belt that moves continuously at 3 feet per second. When Bill steps on the walkway, a group of people that are also on the walkway stands 120 feet in front of him. He walks toward the group at a combined rate (including both walkway and foot speed) of 6 feet per second, reaches the group of people, and then remains stationary until the walkway ends. What is Bill’s average rate of movement for his trip along the moving walkway?

(A)

2 feet per second

(B)

2.5 feet per second

(C)

3 feet per second

(D)

4 feet per second

(E)

5 feet per second

Question 7.

John and Jacob set out together on bicycle traveling at 15 and 12 miles per hour, respectively. After 40 minutes, John stops to fix a flat tire. If it takes John one hour to fix the flat tire and Jacob continues to ride during this time, how many hours will it take John to catch up to Jacob assuming he resumes his ride at 15 miles per hour? (consider John's deceleration/acceleration before/after the flat to be negligible)

(A)

3

(B)

3.33

(C)

3 ½

(D)

4

(E)

4 ½

Question 8.

Deb normally drives to work in 45 minutes at an average speed of 40 miles per hour. This week, however, she plans to bike to work along a route that decreases the total distance she usually travels when driving  by 20% .

(B)

105

(C)

95

(D)

75

(E)

45

Question 9.

Question 14.

Wes works at a science lab that conducts experiments on bacteria.

50,000
