Daily Dilemma #8: Answer Key

1. Team 1:
branch hits 4 for 4 •8 = 32 points
knot hits 2 for 2 • 10 = 20 points

Team 2:
branch hits 4 for 4 • 8 = 32 points
knot hits 3 for 3 • 10 = 30 points

Total points: 32 + 20 + 32 + 30 = 114 points
2. Factors of 48: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48

Factors of 30: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30

Factors of 42: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21, 42
3. Perimeter is 8 + 22 + 8 + 22 + 60 meters

They need 60 – 51 = 9 meters of fencing

\$3.45 • 9 = \$31.05
4. head 12 cm
torso 16 cm
legs 14 cm
5. A flipnoodle is a quadrilateral with an interior circle along the base.
So, flipnoodles are figures B and E.
A is not a flipnoodle because the attached circle is on the exterior.
C is not a flipnoodle because the figure is not a quadrilateral.
D is not a flipnoodle because the circle is in the center of the figure rather than on the base.
F is not a flipnoodle because the large part of the figure is a circle, not a quadrilateral.
