What is 9/81 equal to


simplify it by dividing the numerator by 9 and the denominator by 9 too:

9 ÷ 9 = 1, so your numerator would be 1

81 ÷ 9 = 9, so the denominator would be 9


so your final answer would be;

9/81 = 1/9

Brian has a bag that contains 14 red marbles and 12 yellow marbles. He selects a marble at random, and then, without replacing the first one, selects another marble at random. What is the probability that Brian selects a red marble and then a yellow marble? Round your answer to the nearest percent.

Answer=25%

14 red marbles
12 yellow marbles
26 total marbles

To solve this, we need to first find out the probability of the individual events...

The odds of selecting a red marble is 14 out of 26 total marbles: 14/26

The odds of selecting a yellow marble after the first marble was NOT replaced is 12 out of 25. (25 since the first marble wasn't replaced: 26-1=25) 12/25

Now lets multiple both probabilities together to solve for the chance of both happening consecutively....

14/26*12/25= 168/650=84/325

84/325=0.25846153846= 25%

Erica has a 18% discount coupon for an electronics store. She sees a new television that she wants to buy. After the 18% discount was applied, Erica paid $492 for the television. What was the original price of the television? Please show how.

Answer=$600

If Erica used a 18% off coupon, then she bought the TV for 82% of it's original value.

100%-18%=82%

 $492      $x
_____=_____
 82%     100%


Cross Multiply
82x=49200
divide both sides by 82
x=600

The original price of the TV was $600.

***Lets check our work...

Evaluate the expression, using the given value of the variable. z ÷ 3 – 5z + 4(z – 2) when z = 12 A. –16 B. –96 C. –14 D. –98

First, you would substitute z with 12 since z = 12.
12 ÷ 3 - 5 (12) + 4 (12 - 2).
Then, you would follow the order of operations.
12 ÷ 3 - 60 + 40
4 - 60 + 40
-56 + 40
-16
So your answer is -16.

Twin brothers, Andy and Brian mow their grandparent's lawn together in 12 minutes. Brian could mow the lawn himself in 10 minutes more than it would take Andy. How long would it take each person to mow the lawn alone?

Let
x = time of Byran's work
x + 10 = time of Andy's work

Rate is usually expressed a reciprocal. The total rate will be 12 minutes.
1/x + 1/(x + 10) = 1/12
The value of x will be 20 minutes.

Therefore Byran can take 20 minutes while Andy can take 30 minutes.

QUESTION POSTED AT 14/12/2019 - 05:43 PM

Jeremy opens a chocolate shop in the city. He pays $1,500 a month for rent and maintenance of the shop. The price of raw materials and manufacturing the chocolates is $6,000 a month. He sells the chocolates individually and in boxes of a dozen. Jeremy understands that his business needs a little time to become a success and decides that he wants to build a customer base initially. He is happy to break even for the first year. If Jeremy sells 2,400 individual chocolates and 50 boxes a month, how should he price his chocolates to break even, given the costs? (Assume that the price of a box is the same as the price of 12 individual chocolates.)

Amount of money paid by Jeremy as rent and maintenance of shop per month = $1500
Cost of raw materials and manufacturing per month = $6000
Total cost that Jeremy has to spend per month = (1500 + 6000) dollars
                                                                            = 7500 dollars
Number of individual chocolates sold = 2400
Number of chocolates sold in boxes = 50 boxes
                                                           = (12 * 50) chocolates
                                                           = 600 chocolates
Then
Total number of chocolates sold by Jeremy = 2400 + 600
                                                                       = 3000
Now
Price of each chocolate = 7500/3000 dollars
                                       = 75/30 dollars
                                       = 5/2 dollars
                                       = 2.5 dollars
Price of 600 chocolates = 600 * (5/2) dollars
                                       = 300 * 5 dollars
                                       = 1500 dollars
Price of 12 chocolates = (1500/600) * 12
                                     = 15 * 2
                                     = 30 dollars
Then
We can say that each box of chocolate should be sold at $30. All the loose chocolates should be sold at $2.5 each.

13 pieces because 18 divided by one and one third is 13 and 1/2. Since you can have half a shelf, you have to take only the whole numbers.

Mr. Gengel wants to make a shelf with boards that are 1 1/3 feet long. If he has an 18 foot board, how many pieces can he cut from the big board?

Let us assume that the number of pieces that can be cut = x
Length of each shelf board = 1 1/3 feet
                                   = 4/3 feet
Total length of board available for making shelf = 18 foot
Then
4x/3 = 18
4x = 18 * 3
4x = 54
x = 54/4
   = 13 2/4
As we can see from the above deduction, 13 shelf's can be made from the 18 foot board. There will be about 2/4th of the board remaining, but that 2/4th part will be wasted as it cannot create a complete board.I hope the answer is to your satisfaction and the explanation is clear to you.
