The sharadze family is planning a car trip to atlanta, georgia, which is 279 miles from their home. they plan to drive at an average speed of 62 miles per hour. they also plan to stop for lunch for 45 minutes. based on their plan, when should they leave in order to arrive in atlanta at 3:00 p.m.?

The Sharadaze family should leave at 10:45 am. 

279(miles)/62(miles)=4.5(min.)  4.5(min.)-45(min.)=4.15

10:45+4:15=2:60 which is 3:00

which proves that the Sharadaze family should leave at 10:45 am.

Nina mixed 16 ounces of olive oil with vinegar to make salad dressing. How many cups of oil did Nina use? (1 cup = 8 ounces) A. 128 cups B. 8 cups C. 2 cups D. 1 cup

Nina used 2 cups. The correct answer is B. Use this formula;
lets assume y is the amount of ounces she used. Lets assume x is the amount of cups she used.

y = x(8)
Replace y with 16.
16 = x(8)
Divide by 8.
2 = x
Thus, 2 cups.

Over the last 12 month, Petco has lost a total of $1824.00 due to shoplifting. Write and solve an equation that shows how much money Petco lost each month. ( Since they have lost the money, remember that you need to use negative integers to represent the situation correctly.)

Take y=mx+b  
let x=years and 
y=lost money

then divide 1824 by 12 = 152
and since it is a loss make it into -152
and insert it for m as the constant rate of loss per month
your answer should be y=-152x.
if the store has a starting amount of money plug that into b.

Nigel and Mia are searching for a treasure chest under water. The straight line distance between them is 100 meters. Given the angles in the diagram, who is closer to the treasure chest and why? a) Nigel is closer because his distance to the chest is opposite the larger angle. b) Mia is closer because her distance to the chest is opposite the smaller angle. c) Nigel is closer because his distance from the chest is 100 meters. d) Mia is closer because her distance from the chest is 100 meters.

The answer is b) Mia is closer because her distance to the chest is opposite the smaller angle.

In the relationship of triangle sides and its angles, the shortest side will always be opposite to the smallest interior angle. Furthermore, the largest side will always be opposite to the largest interior angle. Since Mia's distance to the treasure chest is opposite to the smaller angle 65
°, then she is much closer to the chest.

QUESTION POSTED AT 29/03/2020 - 06:35 PM

Write 76% as a decimal and also a reduced fraction. 2. Master Shifu tries to discourage Po from training. He teases Po about messing up 4 out of every 10 Kung Fu moves that he tries to do. What percent of Po's moves does he mess Up?

Write 76% as a decimal and as a reduced fraction.

Decimal : 0.76

Fraction : 76/100, which then simplifies to 38/50, because you divide the numerator & denominator by 2. Then, you divide them by 2 again, and get 19/25. 

Reduced Fraction : 19/25

2) Po messes up 4 out of every 10 moves. 

So, to make this slightly easier, we're going to turn that (above) into a fraction!

Fraction : 4/10

Then, we turn it into a decimal.

To turn it into a decimal, multiply 4/10 by 10/10, so that the denominator is 100. 

Fraction: 4/10 × 10/10 = 40/100

Decimal : Because the denominator is 100, all we have to do is add a decimal marking 2 places to the left of the last digit. (0.40)

Now, because we have our decimal, we simply say that the percentage is 40%.

Why? Because if the decimal is in the hundredths place, all you need to do is take the numbers on the right side of the decimal marking, and add a percentage sign to it.

At a rugby tournament, each player on the top two teams receive medals. If 66 medals are purchased for the tournament, and each team has the same number of players, write an equation and then solve for the total number of medals needed for each team.

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, it's a pretty simple equation. What math are you in? This is how I would do it.
66=2x
Divide each side by 2
66/2=2x/2
33=x    
 (So each team would need 33 medals so that every player would get one)
