Explanation

Question 4. In 1998, Springfield spent $150,000 on safety and $50,000 on recreation facilities; hence, the city spent three times as much on safety as on recreation facilities. If you selected choice (B), you may have used the wrong chart.

Hence option C is correct.

Question 5. In 1992, Springfield collected $151,000 from income tax out of its total income of $433,000;\(\frac{$151,000}{$433,000}\) is slightly greater than \(\frac{1}{3}\), so select choice (D).

Hence option D is correct.

Question 6. The percent change formula is \(\frac{difference}{original}*100\), so, \(\frac{(532-433)}{433}*100\) \(=\frac{99}{433}*100\) , or slightly less than a quarter (25%). The answer is choice B.

Hence option B is correct.
