If Ralph earned$189 on a job, how long did the job take?

Charge of Ralph:

Charge = $24 +$33 per hour

Let the time worked be = x.

For x hours, the cost = 33*x = 33x

Charge = 24 + 33x

24 + 33x = 189

33x = 189 - 24

33x = 165

x = 165/33

x = 5

The job took 5 hours.

### Circle A has a radius of 6 cm and arcs RC, CS, and SM are congruent. What is the length of arc RC? 30 60 120 180

Given that the 3 arcs are congruent, it means they have the same angle.
A circle measures 360 degrees, thus, let us divide it into three parts to get the arc length of the 3 arcs RC, CS, and SM which is in Circle A.
360 degrees / 3 = 120 degrees
Again, the three arcs are congruent so the length of arc RC is 120 degrees,  same with arcs CS and SM.
