Answered by admin AT 22/02/2020 - 11:05 PM

Answer:

14.58 miles.

Step-by-step explanation:

Matthew is training to participate in a half marathon.

The distance covered by Matthew on the first day is 12.5 miles.

The distance covered by Matthew on the second day is 13.5 miles.

The distance increased on the second day is, 13.5-12.5=1 mile.

The percentage will be,

=\dfrac{1}{12.5}\times 100\%

=0.08\times 100\%

=8\%

Hence, each day he runs 8% more. So the distance covered by him on day 3 will be,

=13.5+\left(13.5\times \dfrac{8}{100}\right)

=13.5+1.08

=14.58 miles

Help please will mark brainliest answer!!! ASAP!!! What is the final balance for an account starting with $3000 at 2.5% interest compounded annually for 4 years? A = P(1 + r)t

A = P(1+r)^t  where P is the principal (starting) amount, r is the rate of interest, and t is time. Knowing this, plug in your values:

A = 3,000(1+0.025)^4 < this is what your equation should look like. Once you enter this into a calculator, you should get an answer of $3,311.438672. Round, and you'll be finished.

Answer: The final balance on the account will be $3,311.44

Lets do this the elimination way. to do this, you multiply the bottom equation by three, and now you have
2x-3y=13
9x+3y=9

lets add these two equations together. you get
11x=22
x=2
now substitute 2 for x in the first equation.
2(2)-3y=13
4-3y=13
-3y=9
y=-3


y=-3, x=2

An angle measures 125 degree. Through what fraction of a circle does the angle turn?

Well a circle is 360 degrees and the angle turns 125 of that. a fraction can be considered a ratio of a part of the whole vs the whole and can be written as:
part/whole

So the part is 125 and the whole is 360 so
125/360

This can be reduced by 5
25/72

That is your answer

QUESTION POSTED AT 29/03/2020 - 06:31 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.

~Hope I helped!~

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

ANSWER FAST PLZZZ Which polygons are congruent? Select each correct answer. Two right scalene triangles labeled D E F and P Q R. Corresponding sides and vertices contain one, two, and three tick marks, respectively. Angles E and Q are right angles. Two triangles labeled T U V and W X Y. Side T U is labeled three, side U V is labeled six and five-tenths, and side V T is labeled seven. Side W X is labeled three, side X Y is labeled six and five-tenths, and side Y W is labeled seven. Corresponding vertices contain one, two, and three tick marks, respectively. Two triangles labeled A B C and F G H. Angles A and F are labeled eighty-three degrees. Angle B is labeled forty-eight degrees, angle C is labeled forty-nine degrees, angle G is labeled forty-five degrees, and angle H is labeled fifty-two degrees. Sides B C and G H each contain one tick mark. two right triangles. one with legs 4 and 7 units. the other one with legs 5 and 8 units.

Answer with explanation:

Two Triangles are Congruent by following Geometrical Axioms

1. SAS

2.SSS

3. AAS

4. ASA

1. In Δ DEF and Δ P QR

PQ=DE

∠DEF=∠PQR→→Each being 90°

EF=QR

Δ DEF ≅ Δ P QR→→[SAS Congruency]

2. As in Image 2, only one angle is common

we can't say that triangles are congruent.

3. In ΔT UV and Δ W X Y

WX=TU

UV=XY

TV=WY

∠TUV=∠WXY

∠UTV=∠XWY

ΔT UV ≅ΔW X Y→→[By SAS or AAS or SSS]

4.In ΔABC and ΔFGH

∠A=∠F=83°

we can't say that triangles are congruent,as neither the other two angles nor the other two sides are equal.

5. None of the sides nor of the angles are equal .So the triangles are not congruent.

→→So, Image 1, Image 3,  are congruent Polygons.
