Ms. Sue
The correct answer isn't given for the first problem. 60 out of 1200 is not 60 percent.
Your second and third answers are not correct.
Please try again.

first one:
60/1200 = 0.05 = 5%
You must have a typo in your answer choices.
second one: 800/20000 = .04 = 4% not 4.5%
third one: I got 21 feet 8 inches
