I think its done like this:

300 minus 192 is 108

108 is twice your age

108 divided by 2 is 54

Answer is: 54 years old

The value of a car is inversely proportional to age. If a car is worth 8100 when it is 6 years old, how old will it be when it is worth 5400?

8100/6 = 5400/x
cross multiply
8100x = 32400
x = 32400/8100

Corinne has a job selling magazines. She earns $7.50 per hour plus 20% of the total amount of her sales. She also gets an allowance of $40 per week for gas. She knows her weekly earnings can be shown using the following expression: 7.50h + 0.20s + 40 Part A: Identify a coefficient, a variable, and a constant in this expression. (3 points) Part B: If Corinne works for 25 hours and sells $300 in magazines, how much does she earn for the week? Show your work to receive full credit. (4 points) Part C: If Corinne gets a raise and begins earning $9 per hour, would the coefficient, variable, or constant in the equation change?

A. variable is an unknown number substituted in by a letter, such as h or s
    coefficient is the number multiplied by the variable.....7n....coefficient is 7
    constant is just a number with no variables attached.
    7.50h + 0.20s + 40.....coefficient is 7.50 or 0.20....variable is h or         s....constant is 40

B. 7.50h + 0.20s + 40 = her pay for the week
     she works 25 hrs....so sub in 25 for h....she sells 300....so sub in 300 for      s. ---- 7.50(25) + 0.20(300) + 40 = 287.50 <== her weekly pay

C. if she made 9 per hr instead of 7.50, the coefficient would change.
     It would be 9.00h + 0.20s + 40

How does the volume of a cone change when the radius is quadrupled and the height id reduced to 1/5 of the original size?

The volume (V) of the cone is one-third of the product of its height (h) and area (A). 
                                    V = A x h = πr²h 
Now, if the radius is quadrupled and the height is reduced to 1/5, the equation will be,
                                  V2 = π(4r)²(1/5 h) = π(3.2)r²h
Thus, the second volume would be 3.2 time the first volume.

The sum of Sally and Beth's age is 60. Six years ago, Sally was 3 times as old as Beth. What are their present ages?

Answer: Present age of Beth is 24 years.

And Present age of Sally becomes 36 years.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the present age of Beth be 'x'.

Six years ago,

Age of Beth becomes (x-6) years

Age of Sally becomes

3(x-6)\ yrs

Sum of Sally and Beth's age = 60

According to question, it becomes

x-6+3(x-6)=60+6+6\\\\x-6+3x-18=72\\\\4x-24=72\\\\4x=72+24\\\\4x=96\\\\x=\frac{96}{4}=24\ yrs

So, Present age of Beth is 24 years.

And Present age of Sally becomes 60-24=36 years.

What is the common ratio for the geometric sequence below, written as a fraction? 768, 480, 300, 187.5, …

Let

 a1=768\\a2=480\\a3=300\\a4=187.5

Step  1

Find  \frac{a2}{a1}

 \frac{a2}{a1} =\frac{480}{768}

Divide by  96 numerator and denominator

 \frac{480}{768} =\frac{\frac{480}{96}}{\frac{768}{96}} \\   \\ \frac{480}{768}=\frac{5}{8}

 a2=a1*\frac{5}{8}

Step  2

Find  \frac{a3}{a2}

 \frac{a3}{a2} =\frac{300}{480}

Divide by  60 numerator and denominator

 \frac{300}{480} =\frac{\frac{300}{60}}{\frac{480}{60}} \\   \\  \frac{300}{480}=\frac{5}{8}

 a3=a2*\frac{5}{8}

Step  3

Find  \frac{a4}{a3}

 a4=187.5 \\ a4=187\frac{1}{2} \\ \\ a4=\frac{375}{2}

  \frac{a4}{a3} =\frac{\frac{375}{2}}{300}  \\ \\  \frac{a4}{a3} =\frac{375}{600}

Divide by  75 numerator and denominator

 \frac{375}{600} =\frac{\frac{375}{75}}{\frac{600}{75}} \\   \\ \frac{375}{600}=\frac{5}{8}

 a4=a3*\frac{5}{8}

In this problem

The geometric sequence formula is equal to

 a(n+1)=a(n)*\frac{5}{8}\\

For  n\geq 1

therefore

the answer is

the common ratio for the geometric sequence above is  \frac{5}{8}

A car traveling on a highway is 60 miles away from home after 1 hour, and is 300 miles away from home after 5 hours. What is the rate of change of the car’s distance over time?. a. 1/60 mph. b. 15/2 mph. c. 55mph. d. 60 mph

Answer:

d. 60 mph.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the number of hours and y be the distance covered in miles.

We have been given that a car traveling on a highway is 60 miles away from home after 1 hour, and is 300 miles away from home after 5 hours.

Since distance covered by car depends on number of hours, so distance will be dependent variable, y.

Now we will use average rate of change formula to solve our given problem.

\text{Average rate of change}=\frac{f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}

Substituting our given values in above formula we will get,

\text{Average rate of change}=\frac{300-60}{5-1}

\text{Average rate of change}=\frac{240}{4}

\text{Average rate of change}=60

Therefore, average rate of the car’s distance over time is 60 miles per hour and option 'd' is the correct choice.

The weight of male Americans between the ages of 18 and 25 is normally distributed, with a mean of 164.5 lb and a standard deviation of 26 lb. One definition of obesity states that a person is obese if the z-score of his or her weight is greater than 2. What is the obesity threshold weight for a young adult American male? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.

Answer:

X>216.5 pounds

Step-by-step explanation:

Let X represent the weight of male Americans between the ages of 18 and 25.

X is normally distributed, with a mean of 164.5 lb and a standard deviation of 26 lb.

A person is obese if the z-score of his or her weight is greater than 2

Let us find out corresponding X score for z=2X=2(std dev)+Mean=2(26)+164.5\\216.5

Thus  a person can be considered as obese if his weight exceeds 216.5 pounds.

Write an equation in function form to show the amount of trash removed each week. a. f(x) = - 4x + 60. b. f(x) = 4x + 60. c. f(x) = - 4x + 80. d. f(x) = 4x + 80

You are given two points,

(5, 60) and (10, 40)

in order to get the equation, let's use the form slope-intercept form

m = (y1 - y2) / (x1 - x2)

m = (60 - 40) / (5 - 10)

m = 20/-5

m = -4

Now, do the cube root of 12 to find each dimension, all dimensions will be equal as it is a cube.

B= about 2.29 (when doing on a calculator keep full answer and do not round)
