Question 21This is a basic arithmetic question. Mathematical Solution The number 5.1 may be thought of as: 5 and 10/100. The number 5.3 may be thought of as: 5 and 30/100. The distance between these two numbers is: 30/100 - 10/100 = 20/100. 1/4 of 20/100 = 5/100 which is equal to .05. If we add .05 to 5.1 we have: 5.1 + .05 = 5.15. Hence, the answer is (B). Multiple Choice Is Your Friend Solution (E) is wrong. Obviously the right answer must be between 5.1 and 5.3. (C) and (D) are wrong. 1/2 of the distance between 5.1 and 5.3 is 5.2. Since 1/4 is less than 1/2 the answer must be less than 5.2.
