Ms. Sue please help!

#4. c
14 students, 7 pizzas. Doesn't matter how many slices they use.
#5. Not sure, since you botched the exponent. However,
8^2 = 64
8^2 = 1/64
#6. (a) There are 8 decimal places after the 3.
#7 (a)
3*10^2 x 5*10^5 = 15*10^7 = 1.5*10^8
#8. (d)
1/4 * 2/3 = 2/12 = 1/6
#10. (b)
.387 = 3.87*10^1
shift left 5 more places and you have 3.87*10^6
#13. (c)
#15,16 correct, if the final digit repeats.
#18. (d)
#20. (c)
5 1/3  3 4/7 = 16/3  25/7 = 112/21  75/21 = 37/21 = 1 16/21
#22. (c)
7/8 * 12/11 = 84/88 = 21/22
The rest look correct.
Looks like you need to review some more, especially scientific notation.
Plus, what's all the nonsense with words? Real people use digits when talking about numbers. That, and the typos made it hard going.
2/3  3/10 = (2/3 + 3/10) = (20/20 + 9/30) = 29/30 
i know Steve it's really weird that my questions are like this but they are.
