Nov 6, 2017
This week, some of our math tutoring students from Menlo Park watched the movie Grease, a classic from the late 70s. This week, the math tutor staff at Mathnasium of Palo Alto - Menlo Park compiled some math tutoring practice problems based on the theme of the movie Grease. Grab a pencil and some paper, or if you want a real challenge, try doing these math tutoring problems in your head!
Grease Math Problems for Menlo Park Math Tutoring Students
- Sandy and Danny from Menlo Park spend the whole summer at the beach together. Each day, they stroll the beach at 3mph for 3 hours. If Sandy and Danny spend a total of 30 days on the beach together, how many miles did they each walk on the beach this summer?
- Danny and his friends are trying to fix their old car in Menlo Park. Before maintenance, it took about 45 seconds for the car to start up. After maintenance, there was a 75% improvement in the time it takes for the car to start up. How fast can the car start up after maintenance?
- Rumors travel fast at Rydell High School! One student tells 2 of her friends a rumor. In 5 minutes, each of those two friends tell two of their friends the rumor. 5 minutes later, all of them each tell another 2 of their friends the rumor. 30 minutes after the start of the rumor, how many kids hear the rumor? (Don't forget to count the kids who already know the rumor!)
- The Pink Ladies of Menlo Park (4 friends total) decide to go to a local Menlo Park diner to get some food. If each of them gets one slice of pizza for 35 cents and one strawberry milkshake for a dime, how much money do they spend in total? Assume that tax is 8%.
