One train traveled south at 60 mph. The other traveled east at 50 mph. How far apart were the trains after 3 hours?

Let's called the train that traveled south train A, and the train that traveled east train B

After 3 hours, train A is 180 miles South
and Train B is 150 miles East

Using Pythagoras, distance between is sqrt(180^2 + 150^2)
30 sqrt(6^2 + 5^2) = 30sqrt(36 + 25) = 30sqrt 61 = 234.307 miles

Convert 2 gallons to 10quarts

There are 4 quarts in one gallon, so converting 2 gallons to 10 quarts doesn't appear to be possible. 

However, converting 2.5 gallons to 10 quarts is. 

because there are 4 quarts in a gallon, two gallons is equal to 8 quarts. You don't need another full gallon because then you'd have 12 quarts, so in order to get 10 quarts, you'd have to only use half of the final gallon, giving you 10 quarts. 

I hope this helps you, have a nice day!

Given points A(4,5) and B(-4,11). Find the distance AB to the nearest tenth.

If A(x', y') & B(x",y") the the distance AB is given by the following formula:

AB =√[(x"-x')² + (y"-y')²]

Plug into the above with A(4,5) and B(-4,11).

AB =√[(-4-4)²+(11-5)²] =√(-8)²+(6)² = √(64) + (36) =√100 = 10

The lengths of three sides of a triangle are given. Determine whether each triangle is a right triangle. 1. 14 m, 5 m, 4 m 2. 3 in., 4 in., 5 in. Are these right triangles?

In a right triangle, the hypotenuse is always the longest side.  Plus, the hypotenuse squared has to equal the sum of the squares of the other 2 sides.  For the first "triangle" above: does 14 ^{2} =5 ^{2} +4 ^{2} ?  Let's check.  196 = 25 + 16 so does 196 = 41?  Obviously not.  So that is not a right triangle.  Let's check the second one the same way.  Does 5 ^{2} =3 ^{2} +4 ^{2} ?  25 = 9 + 16.  Does 25 = 25?  Of course it does!  So 1 is not a right triangle, but 2 is!

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 12:47 PM

A bag of coins contains 2 quarters, 5 dimes, 3 nickels, and 4 pennies. If 2 coins are randomly chosen from the bag, one after the other, and not replaced, and if the total value of the chosen coins is 26 cents, what is the probability that a third coin randomly chosen from the bag will be a penny?

Answer:

B

Step-by-step explanation:

The 2 coins that have a combined value of 26 cents are a quarter and a penny. That means that 1 quarter and 1 penny must have already been removed from the bag. For this reason, the bag now contains 1 quarter, 5 dimes, 3 nickels, and 3 pennies. Therefore, the probability that a third coin randomly chosen from the bag will be a penny is

1 + 5 +3 + 3
