The first thing to do is turn this into an equation:

2/3 ÷ 10

10 as a fraction is 10/1

2/3 ÷ 10/1 =

Fractional division is just fractional multiplication after switching the numerator and the denominator of the second fraction:

2/3 X 10/1

Fractional multiplication is simply multiplying the numerators by each other, and the denominators by each other:

2 X 10 = 20

3 X 1 = 3

20/3

Each piece of liquorice will be 20/3 or 6 2/3 of a yard long.

2/3 ÷ 10

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. :)

**Answer: Second option is correct.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Since we have given that

Let the width of corral be 'w'.

Let the length of corral be 'w+20'

Perimeter of corral = 130 m

As we know the formula for "**Perimeter**":

so, width of corral = 30 m

Length of corral = 30+20 = 50 m

**Hence, Second option is correct.**

**Answer:**

**the height of the lamppost is 2.7 meters.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Proportion states that two ratios or fractions are equal.

**As per the statement:**

A boy who is 1.8 meters tall stands 1 meter away from a lamppost and casts a shadow 2 meters long.

You can see the diagram as shown below.

**by definition of proportion we have;**

**From the diagram:**

height of the boy = 1.8 meter tall , shadow of the boy = 2 meter long, height of the lamppost = h meter and shadow of the lamppost = 1+2 = 3 meter

⇒

**Multiply both sides by 3 we have;**

2.7 = h

or

h = 2.7 meter

**Therefore, the height of the lamppost is 2.7 meters.**

**Answer:**

The graph of the circle and function g(x) intersects at the positive and negative x-coordinates as well as at the origin.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

The equation of circle is given as:

also the graph of the function g(x) is given by:

We are given a set of values in a table as:

x g(x)

−4 −4

−2 −2

2 2

Hence, the function g(x) could be computed with the help of slope intercept form of a equation as:

y=mx+c; where m denotes the slope of the line and c denotes the y intercept.

when x=-4 g(x)=y=-4

-4=-4m+c

also when x=-2 then y=g(x)=-2

-2=-2m+c

on solving the above two equations using elimination method we get,

m=1 and c=0

hence, y=g(x)=x

Now we are asked tgo find whether the graph of the circle and g(x) intersect each other or not.

**Clearly from the graph we could see that the graph of the circle and function g(x) intersects at the positive and negative x-coordinates as well as at the origin.**

**Answer: The length of the median from angle B is 8 units.**

**Step-by-step explanation: **As shown in the attached figure, A(-6, 7), B(4, -1) and C(-2, -9) are the vertices of ΔABC.

We are to find the **length of the median BD from angle B to side AC.**

Since BD is the median on side AC. **So, D will be the mid-point of side AC.**

**Therefore, the co-ordinates of the point 'D' are**

**Now, the length of median BD is equal to the distance between the vertex 'B' and the point 'D'.**

**Therefore, the length of median BD calculated using distance formula is**

**Thus, the length of the median from angle B is 8 units.**

The answer is 4x cm < h < 10x cm.

The third side of the triangle is greater than the difference of the lengths of the other two sides (h > 7x cm - 3x cm) and it is less than the sum of the lengths of the other two sides (h < 7x cm + 3x cm). Therefore:

h > 7x - 3x

h < 7x + 3x

This can be expressed as:

7x cm - 3x cm < h < 7x cm + 3x cm

⇒ 4x cm < h < 10x cm
