You're at a clothing store that dyes your clothes while you wait. You get to pick from 4 pieces of clothing (shirt, pants, socks, or hat) and 3 colors (purple, blue, or orange). If you randomly pick the piece of clothing and the color, what is the probability that you'll end up with an orange hat?

4 items of clothing x 3 colors = 12 possibilties

shirt (p, b, or o)
pants (p, b or o)
socks (p, b, or o)
hat (p, b, or o)     = 12 choices.
An orange hat is one of those 12 choices so the probability is 1/2 or 1 out of 12.

A typical small bag of colored candies has about 135 candies in it, 27 of which are blue.At this rate,how many blue candies would you expect in a pile of 1000 colored candies?

There are 135 colored candies in a small typical bag, in which in every 135 colored candies, there are 27 blue candies.
Now, if there are 1 000 pile of colored candies, how much is the total number of blue candies.
First, let’s identify how many 135 candies are there in 1 000 candies
=> 1 000 / 135
=> there are 7.407407…. repeating decimals.
Now, let’s multiply this by 27
=> 7.407… x 27
= 200, thus, there are 200 blue candies in 1000 pile of colored-candies.

The sparkling house cleaning company has cleaned 28 houses this week. If this number represents 40% of the total number of houses the company is contracted to clean, how many total houses wil the company clean by the end of the week?

28 number of Houses = 40% of the total houses the cleaning company needs to clean in a week.
Find the total number of houses do the cleaning company needs to clean in a week>
=> 28 number of houses / 40%
=> 28 / 0.4
=> 70
Thus, the total number of houses that a cleaning company needs to clean in the whole week is 70 houses.
Since they already cleaned 40% of it, which is 28, thus, they still need to clean 42 more.

A class rolled number cubes. Their results are shown in the table. What is the experimental probability of rolling each number? Number----Occurences 1-------------------------51 2-------------------------47 3-------------------------49 4-------------------------51 5-------------------------50 6--------------------45 The experimental probability of rolling a 1 is ____?

Answer:

The experimental probability of rolling a 1 is: \dfrac{51}{293}

The experimental probability of rolling a 2 is: \dfrac{47}{293}

The experimental probability of rolling a 3 is: \dfrac{49}{293}

The experimental probability of rolling a 4 is : \dfrac{51}{293}

The experimental probability of rolling a 5 is : \dfrac{50}{293}

The experimental probability of rolling a 6 is: \dfrac{45}{293}

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given the occurrence of numbers on rolling a number cube as:

         Number----Occurences

            1---------------51

           2--------------47

           3--------------49

           4--------------51

           5--------------50

           6--------------45

This means that the experimental probability of rolling a 1 is:

Ratio of number of times 1 come up and the total number of occurrence.

The total number of occurrence are: 51+47+49+51+50+45=293

This means that the experimental probability of rolling a 1 is:

=\dfrac{51}{293}

Similarly we can solve for others.

A store is selling sculptures. The first week, it prices 6 sculptures at $80 each. After each week, if a sculpture is not sold, it will be priced to sell for 0.85 times the previous week's price. The store needs to sell 6 sculptures for a total of at least $270 to make a profit. What is the last week in which all 6 sculptures could be sold so that the store makes a profit?

80 * 6 = 480 which is the total price for all of the 6 sculptures together if they were bought. You have to mulitply .85 to 480 because it represents how many weeks the price has gone down. 
.480 * .85 = 408 
You then mulitiply 40 with .85 because that's new weeks price. 
408 * .85 = 346.8
You keep doing that until you get to, are are close to $270 
346.8 * .85 = 294.78
294.78 * .85 = 250.56
So your answer would be the 3rd week

12 out of 30 people chose their favourite colour as blue calculate the angle you would use for blue on a pie chart

First, I'll calculate the percentage:

 \frac{12}{30} *100%= \frac{12*100}{30} = \frac{120}{3} =40

so it was 40 % of people that chose blue

And now we can calculate the angle;
 

the full chart would have 360 Degrees, and the "blue" portion of the chart would have 40 % od 360 or  \frac{40*360}{100} =4*36=120+24=144


so the angle would be 144 degrees!

If a pizza is divided into eights, that means that there are eight pieces of pizza. There are three people so if three people each eat one slice, that means there are five pieces of pizza left which is 5/8. 4/8 equals one half. So one more slice of pizza must be eaten for half of the pizza to remain.

A bag contains 56 marbles. each marble is either red, green, or yellow. a marble is randomly removed from the bag and then returned to the bag. the probability that this marble is red is 5/8. the probability that this marble is green is 1/7. how many yellow marbles are in the bag?


The first time I solved this problem, I did it in a way that I had to
mess with changing fractions to common denominators and all that. 
Suddenly, however, the clean and easy way to do it dawned on me. 
Here it is:

-- There are 56 marble in the bag.

-- The probability of pulling a red marble is 5/8, so
5/8 of the 56 marbles must be red.
5/8 of 56 = 35 red marbles.

-- The probability of pulling a green marble is 1/7,
so 1/7 of the 56 marbles must be green.
1/7 of 56 = 8 green marbles.

-- The red and green marbles make up (35 + 8) = 43
of the 56 marbles in the bag.

-- The rest of them are yellow.
   There are  (56 - 43) = 13 yellow marbles in the bag.

-- The probability of pulling a yellow marble is  13/56 .    (about 23.2%)

No messy fractions at all !
That's the way I like it !

If 3 pieces of candy cost $2.10, how much would four pieces cost

Answer

Find out the how much would four pieces cost .

To prove

As given

if 3 pieces of candy cost $2.10 .

Thus

Cost\ of\ one\ piece\ candy = \frac{2.10}{3}

Cost of one piece candy = 0.7

Cost for four pieces candy = 0.7 × 4

                                             = $2.8

Therefore the Cost for four pieces candy be $2.8 .

Jane, Andre and Maria Picked Apple.
Let Jane = J – picked 2 times as many pounds as Andre
Andre = A – picked 3x as many times as maria
And Maria = M – picked 3 lesser than Andre

J = 2(A) = 2 (252) =504
A = 3(m) = 252
M = A / 3 = 252 / 3 = 84
Total Weight = 840 pounds

=> J + A + M = 840 pounds
=>a + (a/ 3) + 2a = 840
=> 3a + a + 6a = 2 520, this is multiplied by 3.
=> 10a = 2 520
