### Candice spent 5 1/4 hours doing her homework. Her brother, Ronald, spent 1/2 that number of hours doing his homework. How many hours did Ronald spend on his homework?

Answer:  Ronald spent hours on his homework.

Step-by-step explanation: Given that Candice spent hours doing her homework. Her brother, Ronald, spent half of that number of hours doing his homework.

We are to find the number of hours that Ronald spent on his homework.

Since Ronald spent half of the time as his brother Candice, so the number of hours that Ronald spent on his homework is given by

Thus, Ronald spent hours on his homework.

### You are going on a field trip in a school bus. A special detector placed on one of the bus's tires counts the number of rotations completed by the tire during the journey. The tire's diameter is 1 meter, and it made 8000 rotations during the trip. How far did the bus travel? Give an exact answer.

The way tires on wheels work is that when the wheel turns one complete
turn, it moves (forward or backward) by a distance that's the circumference
of the tire.

Now, we know that the circumference of a circle is (π) times the diameter.
The diameter of the tire on this bus is 1 meter.  So its circumference is
(π · 1 meter), and every time it turns once, the bus moves 1 meter down
the road.

If the tire rotated 8,000 times, then the bus moved 8,000π meters,
or 8π kilometers.

THAT's the exact answer.  If you want to know how far that actually is,
then you take some number that's approximately π and multiply it by
8 km.  You can never get an exact answer like that, because you can
never write the exact value of π with digits.

In school, we often use  ' 3.14 ' for π .  If you do that, then the bus
traveled

(8 km) x (3.14)  =  25.1 kilometers .

When you do that, you have to remember that it's approximate.
If you want an exact answer, then you have to leave π in the answer.

### HELP! I'm stumped. A bag contains 100 marbles: 30 red, 30 blue, 30 green, plus a mix of 10 yellow and orange marbles. To be certain that you have 10 marbles of the same color, what is the minimum number you would need to remove (without looking) from the bag?

Well, consider the unluckiest case: In whatever order, you manage to remove nine of the red marbles, nine of the blue ones, nine of the green and all of the yellow and orange mix. So far, you've removed 37 of the marbles (9+9+9+10 = 37), yet you don't have 10 of any single color. If you remove just one more marble, it will be red, blue, or green, and you will have 10 of the same color. So the answer is 38 marbles.  :)

He sells x pairs of women’s shoes and y pairs of men’s shoes each week and earns a total income of $2,500. This situation can be represented by the equation 45x + 50y = 2,500 (45 + 50)xy = 2,500 . If Bill has no female customers during a particular week, he needs to sell 45 50 pairs of men’s shoes to earn his weekly income of$2,500. NextReset

Essentially, the question can be rephrased as "if Bill wants to make 2500 dollars, how many male shoes does he have to sell"?

we divide 2500 by the prize of a male pare of shoes, 50 dollars:

2500/50=50

so he has to sell 50 pairs of male shoes!

## Answer:

The number of miles Steve ran is:

4 miles.

## Step-by-step explanation:

Steve uses an app that shows him how many kilometers he has run to prepare for a marathon.

The app said he ran 6.436 kilometers.

Now, we will use the conversion to find the number of kilometers in miles.

The conversion is:

1 mile = 1.609 kilometers

i.e.   1 kilometers= 1/1.609 miles.

Hence,

6.436 kilometers= 6.436/1.609 miles

i.e.  6.436 kilometers= 4 miles.

### If side a measures 90 feet and side b measures 120 feet, how many feet of flowers will be planted along side c, the hypotenuse of the triangle? Show your work and explain your reasoning.

A^2 + b^2 = c^2...a and b are the legs and c is the hypotenuse
90^2 + 120^2 = c^2
8100 + 14400 = c^2
22500 = c^2.....take the sq rt of both sides...this gets rid of the ^2
sq rt 22500 = c
150 = c

so side a = 90 ft, side b = 120 ft, and side c = 150 ft

this is called the pythagorean theorem and it only works on right triangles

undistribute the coefieicne infont of x^2 term
y=-2(x^2-x)+2
take 1/2 of -1 and square it (-1/2 sqared=1/4)
add negative and positive inside
y=-2(x^2-x+1/4-1/4)+2
complete the square
y=-2((x-1/2)^2)-1/4)+2
y=-2(x-1/2)^2+1/2+2

in form
y=a(x-h)^2+k
vertex=(h,k)
y=-2(x-1/2)^2+2.5
vertex is (0.5,2.5)

for x=6

### What are the possible numbers of positive, negative, and complex zeros of f(x) = 3x4 − 5x3 − x2 − 8x + 4? Positive: 2; negative: 2; complex: 4 or 2 or 0 Positive: 1; negative: 3 or 1; complex: 2 or 0 Positive: 3 or 1; negative: 1; complex: 2 or 0 Positive: 2 or 0; negative: 2 or 0; complex: 4 or 2 or 0

Using Descartes' Rule of Signs, we observe whether each consecutive term has a + or - sign:
f(x) = 3x4 − 5x3 − x2 − 8x + 4

Signs are: + - - - +

There are 2 sign changes (from +3 to -5, then from -8 to +4). This means that there are either 2 or 0 positive roots. (We take the number of sign changes, which is 2, and subtract by 2s to get all possible numbers of positive roots.)

For negative roots, we first invert all the odd-powered terms in f(x):

3x4 + 5x3 − x2 + 8x + 4

Signs are: + + - + +
There are 2 sign changes, from +5 to -1, and from -1 to +8. Therefore, there are either 2 or 0 negative roots.
Since the overall degree of f(x) is 4, the total number of roots must sum up to 4. There are either 2 or 0 positive roots, and 2 or 0 negative roots, and everything that remains will be a complex root. The possibilities are:
2 positive, 2 negative, 0 complex
2 positive, 0 negative, 2 complex
0 positive, 2 negative, 2 complex
0 positive, 0 negative, 4 complex.
Therefore we can have either 0, 2, or 4 complex roots.

The correct answer is the last choice.
