# WHAT IS 55 IS 40% OF WHAT NUMBER

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

How?
You must change 40% into a decimal by multiplying 100. ⇒ 0.40
Next, divide it. 55 ÷ 0.40.

55 ÷ 0.40= 137.5

Hoped this helped.

### Abe has a bag of marbles and wants to divide them into sets. The first set will have 2 marbles; the second set, 5; the third set, 8; the fourth set, 11; and so on. How many sets will he have if he starts with 40 marbles?

Ok so the numbers are in a sequence of +3 so he would go 2,5,8,11,14. He could only have 5 groups of marbles because 2+5+8+11+14=40

### 1. To which set of numbers does the number belong? –55 (1 point) natural numbers / whole numbers/ integers / irrational numbers

The number –55 is an integer.

Step-by-step explanation:

Consider the provided information.

Whole numbers are the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,...

Natural numbers are the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,...

Integers are the whole numbers, but they include negative numbers ...-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5..

Irrational numbers are numbers which are not expressible as a ratio of two integers.

Now consider the provided number –55.

From the above definition the number –55 is neither whole number nor the natural number. Also –55 is not an irrational number because it can be expressible as a ratio of two integers.

Hence, the number –55 is an integer.

### The function f(x) = 0.11x + 43 relates how much Derek pays for phone service, f(x), to the number of minutes, x, used for international calls in a month. What is the value and meaning of f(320)? A. $78.20; this is the amount Derek pays for 320 months of service$78.20; / B.this is the amount Derek pays for 320 minutes of international calls $92.50; / C.this is the amount Derek pays for 320 months of service$92.50; / D. this is the amount Derek pays for 320 minutes of international calls

Given the function f(x) = 0.11x + 43, this shows the relationship between how much Derek has to pay for phone service for the amount of minutes he uses on international calls a month.

f(320) can be solved by substituting x = 320, and this is shown below:

f(x) = 0.11x + 43
f(320) = 0.11(320) + 43
f(320) = 78.2

This means that Derek has to pay $78.20 for the 320 minutes of calls. Among the choices, the correct answer is B.

If the wire makes an angle of 55° with the ground, approximate the length l of the wire. (Round your answer to the nearest tenth.) It is useful to start by drawing a picture to visualize this problem. In this case we are going to use the trigonometric function cosine, which is Cos(theta) = adjacent / hypotenuse. Cos(55) = 40 / x After simplifying we reach the equation: X = 40 / cos(55) which would then make the length of the wire 69.7 meters long.

In the third week they solved 60 percent of the problems they had solved during the first two weeks and, in the fourth week, they solved the remaining 320 problems. How many problems did the students solve during the month?

To solve the problem, let x be the number of monthly quota of problems. Below is the list of the problems solved each week,

1st week - 0.25x
2nd week - 1.10(0.25x)
3rd week - 0.6(0.25x + 1.10(0.25x))

D. The expression is . It takes 40 minutes to shape and fire 10 pots.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let the number of pots in a batch = p

Now, one pot takes 3 minutes to get in a shape.

Then, 'p' pots will take minutes to get in a shape.

Also, it takes 10 minutes to fire one batch of pots.

Thus, the expression for the time taken to form one batch of pots = So, when number of pots = 10 i.e. p= 10.

Time taken to fire the pots = = 30+10 = 40

That is, 'It takes 40 minutes to shape and fire 10 pots'.

Thus, option D is correct.
