1 1/8 - 3/4 = 
9/8 - 3/4 =
9/8 - 6/8 =
3/8...so she ran 3/8 miles per day

what u have is an arithmetic sequence with a common difference of 3/8.
And we are looking for the fifth term...

an = a1 + d(n - 1)
n = term we want to find = 5
a1 = first term = 3/4
d = common difference = 3/8
now we sub
a(5) = 3/4 + 3/8(5 - 1)
a(5) = 3/4 + 3/8(4)
a(5) = 3/4 + 12/8
a(5) = 6/8 + 12/8
a(5) = 18/8 reduces to 9/4 or 2 1/4 miles <== jogged on 5th day

Since there are 8 overall rungs on the ladder, this would mean that all 8 (8/8) would equal 1. He is standing on the fifth rung. Put 5 over 8. He is standing on 5/8th rung of the ladder.

It would be 5/8 because you count how much ladder steps there are then count how many he has climbed. I may be wrong but I'm sure this is correct

The sharadze family is planning a car trip to atlanta, georgia, which is 279 miles from their home. they plan to drive at an average speed of 62 miles per hour. they also plan to stop for lunch for 45 minutes. based on their plan, when should they leave in order to arrive in atlanta at 3:00 p.m.?

The Sharadaze family should leave at 10:45 am. 

279(miles)/62(miles)=4.5(min.)  4.5(min.)-45(min.)=4.15

10:45+4:15=2:60 which is 3:00

which proves that the Sharadaze family should leave at 10:45 am.

How can you quickly calculate 20 percent of any bill amount?

First, convert the percent into a decimal. To do this, simply more the % sign two places to the left and make it into a decimal point.

20% = 0.20

Then we will let x be our bill amount.

Then multiply 0.20 and x together to get your answer.

So, 0.20 * x is your answer.

Your cell phone company started a rewards club. For every three texts sent, you get 1515 points. You need 18001800 points for a prize. How many texts do you need to send to get that prize?

Answer:

35,648

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that

Points scored for sending three texts = 1515

Total points needed to win the prize = 18001800

We need to find

Text needed to be sent to win the prize = x= ?

As per given info

3 texts sent give points = 1515

1 text sent give points = 1515/3

1 text sent give points = 505

Now we can use the following formula to calculate the total number of texts that need to be sent to win 18001800

Total Number of texts = Total Points needed to win the prize/ Points scored by sending a text

x= 18001800/505

x = 35,647.12 texts

this can be approximated to 35,648 texts to win the prize

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.

Nigel and Mia are searching for a treasure chest under water. The straight line distance between them is 100 meters. Given the angles in the diagram, who is closer to the treasure chest and why? a) Nigel is closer because his distance to the chest is opposite the larger angle. b) Mia is closer because her distance to the chest is opposite the smaller angle. c) Nigel is closer because his distance from the chest is 100 meters. d) Mia is closer because her distance from the chest is 100 meters.

The answer is b) Mia is closer because her distance to the chest is opposite the smaller angle.

In the relationship of triangle sides and its angles, the shortest side will always be opposite to the smallest interior angle. Furthermore, the largest side will always be opposite to the largest interior angle. Since Mia's distance to the treasure chest is opposite to the smaller angle 65
°, then she is much closer to the chest.
