Thus, the price increased by 1.3225p – p = 0.3225p, or 32.25% of p. If Yolanda’s walking rate was 3 miles per hour and Bob’s was 4 miles per hour, how many miles had Bob walked when they met?
The next 15 percent increase in price results in a price of 1.15(1.15p), or 1.3225p. One hour after Yolanda started walking from X to Y, a distance of 45 miles, Bob started walking along the same road from Y to X.

The Basic Skills Assessment test developed at the Educational Testing Service (1977) contains 65 items that simulate real life tasks.
Examples of such tasks included in the test involve reading a bus schedule, identifying locations on a road map, interpreting a medicine bottle label, finding information in the yellow pages of the telephone book, and so on.
For each scenario, answer according to how you would most likely behave in a similar situation.
For the self-assessment questions, indicate the degree to which the given statements apply to you.
