At Bob's Burgers' grand opening, the owner gives each customer one spin on the spinner shown. All sections of the spinner are the same size. A.J. walks up to the spinner first. He hopes to win a free drink, a free dessert, or free fries. He says, “The probability that I get what I want is 1 out of 3, because there are 3 sections I want the arrow to land in.” Unfortunately, A.J. is incorrect. What is his actual probability of getting one of the three things he wants? What did he do wrong? How did you calculate the correct answer? Answer all three questions in complete sentences.

The actual probability of getting one of the three things he wants is 3/total number of sectios.
He thought it as since he needs to get 1 out of three items, so he did 1/3.
To get the correct answer, the number of items needed is divided with the total number of sections.

Commutative property of addition:

The word "commutative" comes from "commute" or "move around", so the Commutative Property is the one that refers to moving stuff around. For addition, the rule is "a + b = b + a"; in numbers, this means 2 + 3 = 3 + 2. For multiplication, the rule is "ab = ba"; in numbers, this means 2×3 = 3×2.


the opposite of a sum is the sum of its opposites:

When you add three real numbers, the grouping (or association) of the numbers does not change the result. A number and its opposite are called additive inverses of each other because their sum is zero. The opposite of a sum of real numbers is equal to the sum of the opposites.


associative property of addition:

The associative property states that you can add or multiply regardless of how the numbers are grouped. By 'grouped' we mean 'how you use parenthesis'. In other words, if you are adding or multiplying it does not matter where you put the parenthesis. Add some parenthesis anywhere you like!.

At a carnival game, you randomly throw two darts at the board and break two balloons out of 15. What is the probability that both the balloons you break are purple? Write your answer as a fraction or percent rounded to the nearest tenth. (3 red, 4 blue, 2 green, 2 yellow, 4 purple)

Add up the total number of balloons (15) there are 4 purples so the probably of you getting purple at all is 4/15. consider that after you hit the first purple, your odds decrease to 3/14.

Compute and compare the side lengths of the two figures. Does this support an argument claiming that they are congruent? What else must be true to say two polygons are congruent?

The side lengths of the two figures can be calculated with the distance formula:

 √ (x1 - x2)² + (y1 - y2)²        

AB = √13  

BC = √13      

CD = √13    

DA = √13  

A'B' = √13      

B'C' = √13      

C'D' = √13      

D'A' = √13

They are all the same lengths. This supports an argument claiming that they are congruent because if the sides are congruent, then the two polygons are congruent.

Something else that must be true to say that two polygons are congruent is that the angles have equal measures.

Hope this helps! :)

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

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

6x + 8y = 24

x intercept is the value when y =0 & y intercept is the value when x=0


for y=0 ==> 6x+0 =24 ==> x=4 for x=0==> 0+8y =24 ==> y=3
