 3 Professor Crump maintains his theory is correct. He states "the concentration of krill is reduced by 1/3 every time a pod of baleen whales passes by." Consider an area of the ocean where the krill concentration is 44/m3. If Professor Crump's theory were correct, what would we expect the krill concentration to be after a pod of whales comes through and feeds? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.
 4 If half of all type-Y organisms are bristly and eight-ninths of all type-Y organisms are wrinkly, what is the maximum number of type-Y organisms that are neither bristly nor wrinkly out of a sample population of 1,077?

 5 Mr. Bloop is giving a demonstration using a water trough. This is a device used to observe (among other things) the action of water on sediments. He began with a flow rate of one and a third gallons per minute (gpm) and every thirty seconds he halved the rate. Throughout the demonstration the students watched small marked stones move down the trough. What was the flow rate (in gpm) after he halved the rate three times? Express your answer as a fraction.
 6 A new island has formed off the coast of Bay City, which is not unexpected since it is near a subduction zone. The island is currently about 1 km2. How many years would it take for the island to increase its area by one-half through volcanic activity if it expands at a rate of one-eighth of a square kilometer each year?

 10 A mixture of organic compounds is distilling. As the boiling point of each compound in the mixture is reached, the liquid boils at that temperature until the entire compound is gone and then the temperature rises to the boiling point of the next higher boiling compound. Compound-A boiled at 66C and now the temperature has risen to 80C and stabilized. The Boiling point of compound-B is 1C. From this we can conclude that the boiling point of compound-A is _________________ of the boiling point of compound-B. (Note: Fill in the blank above with a fraction that makes the statement true)
