         (45 gal/day) x (31 day/Dec) =

               (45 x 31) (gal/Dec) = 1395 gallons per December .

Choice-B is closer to that figure than Choice-A is,
but they're both poor estimates.

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/12/2019 - 10:51 PM

Yasmine bought 6 gallons of apple juice. After filling up 4 bottles of the same size with apple juice, she had 0.3 gallon of apple juice left.

1.425 gallons/bottle.

Further explanation

Given:

  • Yasmine bought 6 gallons of apple juice.
  • After filling up 4 bottles of the same juice, she had 0.3 gallons of apple juice left.

Question:

What is the amount of apple juice in each container (or bottle)?

The Process:

Let the amount of apple juice in each bottle as X.

The two steps for obtaining X are as follows:

Step-1: the total amount of apple juice is the initial gallon amount subtracted by the remaining gallon amount.

\boxed{ \ 6 \ gallons - 0.3 \ gallons = 5.7 \ gallons \ }

Step-2: the total amount of apple juice divided by the number of bottles is the amount of apple juice in each bottle.

\boxed{ \ X = 5.7 \ gallons \div 4 \ bottles = \boxed{ \ 1.425 \ gallons/bottle \ } \ }

Let's also consider the following quick steps.

Quick steps:

\boxed{ \ X = \frac{(6 - 0.3) \ gallons}{4 \ bottles} = \boxed{ \ 1.425 \ gallons/bottle \ } \ }

Therefore, the amount of apple juice in each container (or bottle) is 1.425 gallons.

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/12/2019 - 10:12 PM

Each week, Rosario drives to an ice skating rink that is 120 miles away. The round-trip takes 2.75 hours. If he averages 55 miles per hour on his way to the rink, which equation can be used to find x, the number of miles per hour he averages on his way home?

While going to the ice skating rink,
Rosario drives a distance of 55 miles in = 1 hour
Then
While going to the ice skating rink,
Rosario drives a distance of 120 miles in = (1/55) * 120                                                                                                          = 2.18 hours
The number of miles per hour Rosario averages while coming back home = x Total up and down time taken by Rosario = 2.75 hours
Then time taken by Rosario to come back
home from ice skating rink = (2.75 – 2.18) hours                                                      = 0.57 hours
Then we can write the equation as
 x = 120/0.57 miles/hour   
    = 210.53 miles/hour

So the average speed of Rosario while coming back home from ice skating rink is 210.53 miles per hour.

30. Given problem : You deposited 2 000 dollars, then you will earn 6% simple interest. Question: How long will it become 2 600 dollars. Well, you didn’t mention if it’s an annual interest or monthly interest. But let’s say that it’s a monthly interest, then let’s start solving: => 2000 Is the original amount + 6% interest first month = 2000 * .06 = 120 => 2000 + 120 = 2120 2nd month = 2120 *.06 = 127.2 => 2120 + 127.2 = 2247.2 3rd month = 2247.2 *.06 = 134.832 => 2247.2 + 134.832 = 2382.032 4th month = 2382.032 * .06 = 142.92192 => 2382.032 + 142.92192 = 2524.95392 5th month = 2524.95392 * .06 = 151.497 => 2524.95392 + 151.497 = 2676.45 Thus, on the fifth month she will earn this amount.

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/12/2019 - 05:42 PM

A hospital needs to dilute a 50% boric acid solution to a 10% solution. If it needs 25 liters of the 10% solution, how much of the 50% solution and how much water should be used?

You need one equation of this problem to balance the amount of a boric acid.

The amount of boric acid in 50% solution is expressed as 0.50*x

Next, the amount of water is taken from 25 liters and x (based on 50% solution), that is 25 - x. However, there is NO amount of BORIC ACID in water, and that is 0.

For the output solution, the amount of boric acid will be 0.10*2.5 = 2.5

Then, the balance equation is
0.50*x + 0*(25 - x) = 2.5
Solving for x,
0.50*x + 0 = 2.5
x = 2.5/0.5 = 5

Therefore the amount of liters in 50% solution is
5*0.50 = 2.5 liters
The amount of water is 25 - 5 = 20 liters

An above-ground swimming pool in the shape of a cylinder has a diameter of 18 feet and a height of 4.5 feet. If the pool is filled with water to 6 inches from the top of the pool, what is the volume, to the nearest cubic foot, of the water in the pool?⇆


The volume of a cylinder is

                                   (pi) (radius²) (height) .

Radius = 1/2 diameter.
Radius of this pool = (1/2) (18 ft) = 9 ft

The pool is a cylinder with height of 4.5 feet. 
The water in it is also a cylinder, but only 4 ft high.

Volume of the water =

             (pi) x (radius²) x (height)

         =  (pi)  x  (9 ft)²  x  (4 ft)

         =  (pi)  x  (81 ft²)  x  (4 ft)

         =  (pi)  x  (324 ft³)  =  1,017.9 ft³ .

QUESTION POSTED AT 15/12/2019 - 03:50 PM

One survey estimates that,on average, the retail value of a mid sized car decreases by8% annually.if the retail value of a car is v dollars today,which expression represents the car value 1year later?

Percentage by which the average value of mid sized car decreases each year = 8%
Retail value of a car today = v dollars
Amount of decrease in the value of the car after 1 year = (8/100) * v
                                                                                         = 2v/25 dollars
Then
The equation that represents the value of the car after 1 year = v - (2v/25) dollars
                                                                                                   = (25v - 2v)/25 dollars
                                                                                                   = 23v/25 dollars
So following this expression the value of the mid sized car can be easily determined after 1 year. I hope this is the answer you were looking for and the procedure is also clear to you.

A car travels 350 miles on 20 gallons of gasoline.how many gallons will be used to travel 875 miles under the same condition? Explain how you did it

A car can travel for a distance of 350 miles in = 20 gallons
The car can travel for a distance of 1 mile in = (20/350) gallons
                                                                        = 2/35 gallons
Then
The same car can travel for a distance of 875 miles in = (2/35) * 875 gallons
                                                                                        = 1750/35 gallons
                                                                                        = 50 gallons
So it can be seen that 50 gallons of gasoline is required to travel for a distance of 875 miles. I hope the procedure is clear enough for you to understand.

It is important to closely check all the data that are given in the question. Those data are important for finding the result.
Original = 45 
New after decrease = 30
Quantity of decrease = 45 - 30
                                   = 15
Percentage of decrease = (15/45) * 100
                                        = 100/3
                                        = 33.33%
So we get 33.33% as the percentage of decrease. I hope the procedure is clear enough for you to understand. This procedure will help you to solve this type of problems in future with absolute ease.
