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

2.)

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.
