**Lower Elementary:***Answer: *Mikey*Solution: *If Raph is the second shortest and Leo’s height is between Raph’s and Donnies, then both Leo and Donnie are taller than Raph. That means that Mikey must be the shortest.

**Upper Elementary:***Answer: *18 ounces*Solution: *Since ^{3}⁄_{4 }of the cannister of ooze spilled, that means that 4 ^{1}⁄_{2 }fluid ounces is ^{1}⁄_{4 }of the total amount of ooze the cannister can hold. So, the cannister can hold 4 ^{1}⁄_{2 }× 4 = 18 fluid ounces in total.

**Middle School:***Answer:* Computer Programmer*Solution: *The lab assistant job pays $48.00 ÷ 4 = $12.00 per hour. The computer programmer job pays $65.00 ÷ 5 = $13.00 per hour. The reporter job pays $69.00 ÷ 6 = $11.50 per hour. So, if April wants to earn the most money per hour, she should take the job as a computer programmer.

**Algebra and Up:***Answer:* 21 ^{1}⁄_{3 }π square inches*Solution: *Before any slices are eaten, the pizza takes up πr2 = 64π square inches. Since 4 out of 6 slices were eaten, that leaves 2 slices, so ^{1}⁄_{3 }of the pizza is left over. That means that the area taken up by the remaining two slices is ^{1}⁄_{3 }× 64π = 21 ^{1}⁄_{3 }π square inches.
