Two boxes are put together to increase the storage area for drugs in an apartment. The criminal is storing small boxes of crack measuring 4 cm x 4 cm x 10 cm. How many boxes can fit into the larger box, which measures 1 metre x 1 metre x 0.2 metres?

There is an outdoor party going on in your town. There are 350 people attending. A dangerous storm is 2 hours away and moving at 35 mph towards the festivities. If 100 people can be moved to safety in 30 minutes, how long would it take to evacuate the entire party population?

The income tax rate is 22%. Each dependent an officer claims reduces the tax rate by 0.5%. The officer makes $68,000 per year gross. If the officer has three children, what will her monthly take home pay be?
