## PARCC Math Practice

1.
Dario is making a birdhouse from a board that is $3/4$ of a meter long. He cuts $1/2$ meter off the board and uses the remaining piece for the base of the birdhouse. Dario subtracts $1/2$ from $3/4$ to find the length of the base. Dario said $3/4 - 1/2 = 2/4$ and plotted $2/4$ on this number line. $*$ Explain why Dario's answer is not reasonable.
$*$ Find the total length of the birdhouse base, in meters.
$*$ Explain how to use the number line to show your answer is correct.

2.
In this right rectangular prism, each small cube measures 1 unit on each side. $*$What is the volume of the prism?
$*$Explain how you found the volume. You may show your work in your explanation.
$*$What could be the dimensions of a new right rectangular prism that has 16 fewer unit cubes than the original prism?
$*$Explain how you determined the dimensions of the new right rectangular prism.
