Penguins

Sample

 1 Penguins mostly live in the Antarctic region. However, there is one penguin that does not. It is the African penguin, which lives in South Africa. African penguins are about 18 inches high and weigh around eight pounds. There are about one hundred seventy-nine thousand of them on Earth. How much would all of those African penguins weigh altogether?
 2 Emperor penguins can swim as fast as 8.9 miles per hour. At that rate, how far could an emperor swim from 11:30 a.m. to 2:23 p.m.? (Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a mile)
 3 During deep dives, the penguin heart rate slows down. The heart rate of a diving emperor penguin is about 15% lower than its resting heart rate. If its resting heart rate is seventy-six beats per minute, what is its heart rate during deep dives? (Round to the nearest number of beats)
 4 Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth and is where most penguins live. The record low temperature is -126 degrees Fahrenheit. The hottest place on Earth is Death Valley with the record high of 134 degrees Fahrenheit. How many degrees hotter was Death Valley than Antarctica?
 5 On land, emperor penguins tip up their feet and rest their entire weight on their heels and tails. That reduces the amount of contact they have with the icy surface. They also huddle together to conserve heat. If there are three hundred eighty-six emperor penguins huddled together and 43.52% are female, how many are male?
 6 Besides being small and having blue/gray eyes, fairy penguins are relatively slow swimmers. They can only swim about 8.8 miles per hour. At this rate, how long would it take a fairy penguin to swim forty-four miles?
