Owen bred 21 turtles, and Johanna has 5 fewer turtles than Owen. After 1 month, Owen has twice as many turtles as before and Johanna loses half of her turtles and donates the rest to Owen. How many turtles did Owen have?  Johanna had 21 turtles  5 turtles = <<215=16>>16 turtles.
After 1 month, Owen was left with 21 turtles * 2 = <<21*2=42>>42 turtles.
After 1 month, Johanna was left with 16 turtles / 2 = <<16/2=8>>8 turtles.
After Johanna's donation, Owen was left with 42 turtles + 8 turtles = <<42+8=50>>50 turtles.

In one day, 200 people visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Half of the visitors are residents of New York City. Of the NYC residents, 30% are college students. If the cost of a college student ticket is $4, how much money does the museum get from college students that are residents of NYC?  The number of visitors that are residents of NYC is 200 / 2 = <<200/2=100>>100 visitors
The number of NYC resident visitors that are college students is 100 * 0.30 = <<100*0.30=30>>30 visitors
The money from the college students that are residents of NYC is 30 * $4 = $<<30*4=120>>120

Chris has twelve marbles, and Ryan has twentyeight marbles. If they put marbles together in a pile and then each takes away 1/4 of marbles from the pile, calculate the number of marbles remaining in the pile.  If Chris and Ryan put together their marbles in a pile, the pile will have 12+28 = <<12+28=40>>40 marbles.
If they then take 1/4 of the marbles each, every person will receive 1/4*40 = <<1/4*40=10>>10 marbles.
Both of them will have taken a total of 10+10 = <<10+10=20>>20 marbles.
The number of marbles remaining in the pile is 4020 = <<4020=20>>20

Yvonne brings a box of chocolates to school. Half have nuts and half do not. The students eat 80% of the ones with nuts and eat half of the ones without nuts. If there are 28 chocolates left, how many chocolates were in the box?  The ones with nuts that they ate was 40% of the box because 80% x .5 = 40%
The ones without nuts that they ate equaled 25% of the box because 50% x .5 = 25%
They ate 65% of the box because 40 + 25 = <<40+25=65>>65
They left 35% of the box because 100  65 = <<10065=35>>35
The box had 80 chocolates because 28 / .35 = <<28/.35=80>>80

If the first skyscraper was built 100 years ago, how many years in the future will it be 5 years before its 200th anniversary of being built?  First, we perform 2005=<<2005=195>>195 to find the number of total years from the building being built that we're looking for.
Then, we subtract out the 100 years that have already passed to determine the remaining amount of time, performing 195100= <<195100=95>>95 years in the future.

Nalani had two female dogs that were expecting and after a month gave birth to 10 puppies each. She then sold 3/4 of the puppies after they came of age, each at $200. Calculate the total amount of money she received from the sale of the puppies.  If the two expectant dogs gave birth to 10 puppies each, the total number of puppies Nalani had is 10+10= <<10+10=20>>20
When they came of age, Nalani sold 3/4 of the dogs, a total of 3/4*20 = <<3/4*20=15>>15 dogs.
If each dog sold for $200, Nalani received 15*200 = $<<15*200=3000>>3000 from the sale of the dogs.

The price of candy bars is twice the cost of caramel, and the cost of cotton candy is half the price of 4 candy bars. If the price of 1 caramel is $3, how much do 6 candy bars, 3 caramel, and 1 cotton candy cost together?  The candy bars each cost $3 * 2 = $<<3*2=6>>6.
The cotton candies each cost 1/2 * (4 * $6) = $12
6 candy bars cost 6 bars * $6/bar = $<<6*6=36>>36.
3 caramels cost 3 caramels * $3/caramel = $<<3*3=9>>9.
All the candies together cost $36 + $9 + $12 = $<<36+9+12=57>>57.

Cary is trying to strip the ivy off a tree in her yard. She strips 6 feet of ivy every day, but the ivy grows another 2 feet every night. If the tree is covered by 40 feet of ivy, how many days will it take Cary to strip all the ivy off?  First find the net amount of ivy Cary removes each day by subtracting the ivy's growth from the amount she removes: 6 feet/day  2 feet/day = <<62=4>>4 feet/day
Then divide the total feet of ivy by the net amount Cary removes each day to find how many days it takes her to remove all the ivy: 40 feet / 4 feet/day = <<40/4=10>>10 days

Ravi can jump higher than anyone in the class. In fact, he can jump 1.5 times higher than the average jump of the three next highest jumpers. If the three next highest jumpers can jump 23 inches, 27 inches, and 28 inches, how high can Ravi jump?  The total height the next three highest can jump is 78 inches because 23 + 27 + 28 = <<23+27+28=78>>78
The average height they can jump is 26 inches because 78 / 3 = <<78/3=26>>26
Ravi can jump 39 inches high because 26 x 1.5 = <<26*1.5=39>>39

Mike and John dined at the Taco Palace restaurant. They each ordered the Taco Grande Plate as their main meal, but Mike also ordered a side salad for $2, a plate of cheesy fries for $4, and a diet cola for $2. As a result, Mike's lunch bill was twice as large as John's bill. What was the combined total cost, in dollars, of Mike and John's lunch?  Let "x" be the cost in dollars of the Taco Grande Plate.
Since twice the cost of John's Taco Plate equals the cost of Mike's Taco Plate plus added items, then 2x = x+2+4+2.
Simplifying the equation, we get 2x = x+8.
Subtracting x from each side of the equation, we are left with x=8 dollars as the cost of the Taco Grande Plate.
Thus the combined total cost of Mike and John's lunch is 8+8+2+4+2=<<8+8+2+4+2=24>>24 dollars.

Phil started his day with $40. He bought a slice of pizza for $2.75, a soda for $1.50 and a pair of jeans for $11.50. If he has nothing but quarters left of his original money, how many quarters does he now have?  The total cost of pizza, soda and jeans is $2.75 + $1.50 + $11.50 = $<<2.75+1.5+11.5=15.75>>15.75
He now has $40  $15.75 = $<<4015.75=24.25>>24.25 left.
There are 4 quarters in $1.00 so $24 is equal to 24 x 4 = <<24*4=96>>96 quarters.
25 cents is equal to 1 quarter.
Therefore, Phil has 96 quarters + 1 quarter = <<96+1=97>>97 quarters now.

A baker is comparing the day’s sales to his daily average. He usually sells 20 pastries and 10 loaves of bread. Today, he sells 14 pastries and 25 loaves of bread. If pastries are sold for $2 and loaves of bread are sold for $4, what is the difference, in dollars, between the baker’s daily average and total for today?  The daily average sales of pastries amounts to 20 pastries * $2/pastry = $<<20*2=40>>40.
The daily average sales of bread amounts to 10 loaves of bread * $4/loaf = $<<10*4=40>>40.
Therefore, the daily average is $40 + $40 = $<<40+40=80>>80.
Today’s sales of pastries amounts to 14 pastries * $2/pastry = $<<14*2=28>>28.
Today’s sales of loaves of bread amounts to 25 loaves of bread * $4/loaf = $<<25*4=100>>100.
Therefore, today’s sales amount to $28 + $100 = $<<28+100=128>>128.
This means the total difference between today’s sales and the daily average is $128 – $80 = $<<12880=48>>48.

### Response:  The daily average sales of pastries amounts to 20 pastries * $2/pastry = $<<20*2=40>>40.
The daily average sales of bread amounts to 10 loaves of bread * $4/loaf = $<<10*4=40>>40.
Therefore, the daily average is $40 + $40 = $<<40+40=80>>80.
Today’s sales of pastries amounts to 14 pastries * $2/pastry = $<<14*2=28>>28.
Today’s sales of loaves of bread amounts to 25 loaves of bread * $4/loaf = $<<25*4=100>>100.
Therefore, today’s sales amount to $28 + $100 = $<<28+100=128>>128.
This means the total difference between today’s sales and the daily average is $128 – $80 = $<<12880=48>>48.
