2) To receive a license to sell insurance, an insurance account executive must answer correctly 70% of the 250 questions on a test. Nicholas Mosley answered 177 questions correctly. Did he pass the test?

First, let's figure how many right answers are passing on this test.

0.7 * 250 = 175

To pass this test, students need at least 175 correct answers.

Therefore he passed the test because he has two more right answers than is needed for passing it.
