**MathGuru**, Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 11:06amNot quite sure what your numbers are supposed to be for the first question. If you are looking at money values, think of it this way: is 50 cents less than 75 cents? Maybe this will help give you a better perspective in choosing the smallest amount.

For the second question:

You are missing the cost of the case of fruit.

For the third question: you are correct! The rest are fractions.
