How many oranges!?!?!
Will Pamela continue to purchase 192 oranges in every math problem?
The answer is No! The new SAT will now…
“Ask students to solve problems grounded in science, social science, career scenarios, and other real-life contexts.” –College Board
So Pamela might buy 4 or 5 oranges at the grocery, but unless she is in the restaurant industry, she will probably not be purchasing 192 oranges.
