Welll -- you got number 2 right.

It sure looks like you guessed and made stabs in the dark without even reading the questions.

I'm going to give you the answer to number two as an example, hopefully you can answer this yourself.

2.)

A flower arrangement was marked down 12.5%. If the flowers originally cost $20, what is the amount of the discount?

A: Multiply 12,5x20, the answer is 250. Then, divide 250 by 100. The answer is $2.50. Not twenty-five, not seventeen dollars and fifty cents, two dollars and fifty cents.

Number 2 was not right, none of these questions were.
