Answer:

Question 32.

George recorded the height of his bean plant every week for Week Plant Height (cm) four weeks. If the same pattern continues, how tall will his plant be in the seventh week?

_____________________________________________________

Answer:

For the seventh week, it will be 14.75 cm.

Explanation:

Given that George recorded the height of his bean plant every week for Week Plant Height (cm) for four weeks. Here, the pattern follows adding 1.75 to the next digit. So for the 5th week, it will be 9.5+1.75 = 11.25

6th week it will be 11.25+1.75 = 13 and for the seventh week, it will be 13+1.75 = 14.75.

Question 34.

The Romero, Hill. and Johnson families each went on a weekend outing. The Romero’s parking was not the most expensive. The Hill’s parking cost less than the Romero’s. Which location did each family visit?

Answer:

Romero’s parking is near the swimming pool,

Hill’s parking is near a forest preserve, and Johnson families parking is near the zoo.

Explanation:

Given that the Romero, Hill. and Johnson families each went on a weekend outing and the Romero’s parking was not the most expensive and Hill’s parking cost less than Romero’s. So Romero’s parking is near the swimming pool which costs $15.50 and Hill’s parking is near a forest preserve which is $12.00 and Johnson families parking is near the zoo which costs $16.00.
