You guys all want real-world examples so: How many of these can you answer correctly?


THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES HIGH SCHOOL MATH PROFICIENCY EXAM


NAME____________________

GANG NAME______________


1. Little Johnny has an AK 47 with a 30 round clip. He
usually misses 6 out of every 10 shots and he uses 13 rounds per drive-by shooting. How many drive-by shootings can Little Johnny attempt before he has to reload?

2. Jose has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sells an 8 ball to
Antonio for $320 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what
is the street value of the rest of his hold?

3. Rufus pimps 3 hos. If the price is $85 per trick, how
many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Rufus's
$800 per day crack habit?

4. Jerome wants to cut the pound of cocaine he bought for
$40,000 to make 20% profit. How many ounces will he need?

5. Willie gets $200 for a stolen BMW, $150 for stealing a
Corvette, and $100 for a 4x4. If he steals 1 BMW, 2
Corvettes and 3 4x4's, how many more Corvettes must he
have to steal to have $900?

6. Raoul got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for
the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 per month, how
much money will be left when he gets out?

Extra credit bonus: how much more time will he get for
killing the ho that spent his money?

7. If an average can of spray paint covers 22 square feet
and the average letter is 3 square feet, how many letters
can be sprayed with 3 eight ounce cans of spray paint with
20% paint free?

8. Hector knocked up 3 girls in the gang. There are 27
girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls
Hector knocked up?

9. Bernie is a lookout for the gang. Bernie has a Boa
Constrictor that eats 3 small rats per week at a cost of $5
per rat. If Bernie makes $700 a week as a lookout, how many
weeks can he feed the Boa on one week's income?

10. Billy steals Joe's skateboard. As Billy skates away at
35 mph, Joe loads his 357 Magnum. If it takes Joe 20
seconds to load his magnum, how far away will Billy be when
he gets whacked?

Good stuff! But far too application-based to prepare those kids for college. NCLB says you FAILED! :angel:

Oh I am NOT a fan of NCLB at all!
But I thought the application of a little more humor would help this thread along.....
see, getting gang bangers ready for college...leaving no one behind...judging teachers when they can't get the bangers to graduate...
its funny! In my head, anyway... :blink:
Sadly, it may be too true...

My wife is a math teacher and she thought this was pretty funny. The sad thing is that this is way beyond what they can do in some schools around where we live. I will save the name of the state for the sake of embarrassment! RL

2 drive bys

2. Jose has 2 ounces of cocaine. If he sells an 8 ball to Antonio for $220 and 2 grams to Juan for $85 per gram, what is the street value of the rest of his hold?

He sold 3.5g to antonio for 220, so 62.5 a gram. Then to juan for 85 a gram, he must not like juan. 70 is his average. He has 50.5G left over, so he has about $3,585 worth of coke in his pocket.

3. Rufus pimps 3 hoe's. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Rufus's $800 per day crack habit?

9.4, don't wanna know what .4 is.

50

none stupid test, 200+300+300=800 if slick willie steals another he will have 950.
