Problem

The lengths of some elephant footprints are shown below.
A line plot labeled Elephant footprint lengths (centimeters) shows, moving left to right, labeled tick marks at 42, 43, 44, 45, 45, 47, 48, 49, and 50. An unlabeled tick mark appears in the middle between each labeled tick mark. Dots are plotted as follows: 1 dot above 43, 3 dots above the unlabeled tick mark between 44 and 45, 2 dots above 45, 4 dots above the unlabeled tick mark between 45 and 46, 5 dots above the unlabeled tick mark between 46 and 47, 3 dots above 47, 2 dots above 48, 1 dot above the unlabeled tick mark between 48 and 49, and 2 dots above the unlabeled tick mark between 49 and 50.
How many footprints are longer than 4712 centimeters?
  • Your answer should be
  • an integer, like 6
  • an exact decimal, like 0.75
  • a simplified proper fraction, like 3/5
  • a simplified improper fraction, like 7/4
  • a mixed number, like 1 3/4
