So 3/4
divide by 3
3/4 divided by 3=3/4 times 1/3=1/4 times 3/3=1/4 times 1

1/4 pound of pasta per bowl

Tom drives a truck. His regular trip is a distance of 280 km. He drives at an average speed of 80 km/h. For safety reasons Tom’s boss puts a speed limiter on his truck. This reduces Tom’s average speed by 10 km/h. How much longer will it take Tom to drive his regular trip?

Distance = 280 km

Average speed = 10 km/h

Time = Distance / Speed

Time = 280 km / 80 km/h

        = 3.5 hours.

If the driver's speed reduced by 10 km/h, speed = 80 - 10 = 70 km/h

Time = Distance / Speed

Time = 280 km / 70 km/h

        = 4 hours.

The time would be longer by :    4 - 3.5 = 0.5 hours.

0.5 * 60 = 30 minutes.

It would be longer by 0.5 hours or 30 minutes.

Lydia writes the equation below with a missing value. y=5x - __ She puts a value in the box and says that the equation represents a direct variation. Which explains whether the equation could represent a direct variation? A. If she puts 0 in the box she would have a direct variation. B. If she puts 5 in the box she would have a direct variation. C. The equation is not of the form y=kx, so it cannot represent a direct variation. D. The equation has a minus sign, so it cannot represent a direct variation.

Answer:

Option (a) is correct.

If she puts 0 in the box she would have a direct variation.

Step-by-step explanation:

 Given : Lydia writes the equation y = 5x - __ with a missing value.

She puts a value in the box and says that the equation represents a direct variation.

We have to choose the correct option from the given options that explain that  the equation could represent a direct variation.

When two variables are such that one is a constant multiple of other, we said they are in Direct variation.

That is in form of y = ax , here y and x are in direct variation.

Consider the given equation y = 5x  - __

For the equation to be in direct variation the value of missing term has to be 0.

then equation becomes,

y = 5x

Thus, If she puts 0 in the box she would have a direct variation.

Option (a) is correct.

QUESTION POSTED AT 24/01/2020 - 10:56 PM

The number of milligrams of a certain medicine a veterinarian gives to a dog varies directly with the weight of the dog. If the veterinarian gives a 30-pound dog 3/5 milligram of the medicine, which equation relates the weight, w, and the dosage, d? A. d=1/50w B. d=3/5w C. d=18w D. d=50w

Answer:

Option A is correct

d = \frac{1}{50}w

Step-by-step explanation:

Direct variation says that:

y \propto x then;

the equation is in the form of

y=kx, where k is the constant of variation

As per the statement:

The number of milligrams of a certain medicine a veterinarian gives to a dog varies directly with the weight of the dog.

Here, w represents the weight and d represents the dosage

then ,by definition of direct variation we have;

d =kw         .....[1]

It is also given that if the veterinarian gives a 30-pound dog 3/5 milligram of the medicine

⇒w = 30 pound and d = 3/5 milligram

Substitute in [1] we have;

\frac{3}{5} = 30k

Multiply both sides by 5 we have;

3 = 150k

Divide both sides by 150 we have;

\frac{3}{150}=k

Simplify:

k = \frac{1}{50}

d = \frac{1}{50}w

therefore, equation relates the weight, w, and the dosage, d is:

d = \frac{1}{50}w

QUESTION POSTED AT 24/01/2020 - 10:50 PM

Point O is the center of a circle passing through points A, B, and C. ∠B is a right angle. The center of the circumscribed circle lies on line segment, (options: AB,BC, or CA) and the longest side of the triangle is equal to the (options: radius, diameter, or circumference) of the circle. Please help me....

Answer:  The answers are CA and diameter.

Step-by-step explanation:  As given in the question, a circle with centre 'O' is passing through three A, B and C, where ∠B is a right angle.

In the circumscribed circle, we have the converse of the Thales' theorem, which states that -

if A, B, and C are distinct points on a circle where angle ∠ABC is a right-angle, then the line AC will be a diameter of the circle.

The given information is drawn in the attached figure.

Applying the converse of Thales' Theorem, we have AC will be a diameter of the circle.

We know that the diameter of a circle is a chord parring through the centre, so the centre will lie on the line segment CA.

Since the opposite side of the right-angle is the longest side (hypotenuse) in a right-angled triangle, so we have CA as the longest side of ΔABC.

Since CA is also a diameter of the circle, so the longest side of the triangle is equal to the diameter of the circle.

Thus, the centre will lie on the line segment CA and the longest side of the triangle is equal to the diameter of the circle.

Based on the data in the two-way table, what is the probability that a person weighs 120 pounds, given that he or she consumes 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day?

In the question "Based on the data in the two-way table, what is the probability that a person weighs 120 pounds, given that he or she consumes 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day?" The probability of an event, say A given another event, say B is given by n(A and B) / n(B). Thus the probability that a person weighs 120 pounds, given that he or she consumes 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day is given by number of persons that weigh 120 pounds and consume 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day / number of persons that consume 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day. From the table, the number of persons that weigh 120 pounds and consume 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day is 10 while the number of persons that consume 2,000 to 2,500 calories per day is 110. Therefore, the required probability is 10 / 110 = 1 / 11

He started with only 3. QUESTION BELOW Compare and contrast these four functions using complete sentences. Focus on the slope and y-intercept first, and then on any additional properties of each function

Let us first obtain the standard form of each equation:

f(x): | using points (1,1) and (2,5)

y - 1 = [(5-1)/(2-1)] (x - 1)
y - 1 = 4x - 4
y = 4x - 3

g(x) : | using points (-2,5) and (0,-3)

y - 5 = [(-3-5)/(0+2)] (x + 2)
y - 5 = -4x -8
y = -4x - 3

h(x) = -4x + 3

j(x) = 4x + 3

In summary:

f(x) = 4x - 3
g(x) = -4x - 3
h(x) = -4x + 3
j(x) = 4x + 3

f(x) and j(x) both have the same slope, but start on different y-ordinates. g(x) and h(x) have the same slope, which is the negative of the slope of f(x) and j(x).

QUESTION POSTED AT 24/01/2020 - 12:38 PM

Find all whole number solutions of each system using a table.. 9.) x+y<8. 3x less than or equal to y+6. . . PLEASE HELP

The correct answers are:

x ≤ 3 and y < 4.

Explanation:

We can isolate the variable y in the first inequality by subtracting x from each side:

x+y < 8

x+y-x < 8-x

y < 8-x

Now we can substitute this into the second inequality:

3x ≤ y + 6

3x ≤ 8-x+6

Combining like terms on the right, we have

3x ≤ 14-x

We will add x to each side so that we only have a variable on one side of the inequality:

3x+x ≤ 14-x+x

4x ≤ 14

Divide both sides by 4:

4x/4 ≤ 14/4

x ≤ 3.5

Now we substitute this into the first inequality:

3.5+y<8

Subtract 3.5 from each side:

3.5+y-3.5 < 8-3.5

y < 4.5

Our solutions are x ≤ 3.5 and y < 4.5.  However, we are asked to find the whole number solutions; this involves some rounding.  While 3.5 would round up to 4, it will not work in our inequality, since x is to be less than or equal to 3.5 and 4 is neither less than nor equal to this number.  Thus we say that x is less than or equal to 3.

4.5 would round up to 5; however, it will not work either, since y is to be less than 4.5 and 5 is not less than 4.5.  Thus we say that x is less than 4.

where A is a positive integer and B,C are integers.

Here we are given a equation as:

A sealed-tube manometer can be used to measure pressures below atmospheric pressure. The tube above the mercury is evacuated. When there is a vacuum in the flask, the mercury levels in both arms of the U-tube are equal. If a gaseous sample is introduced into the flask, the mercury levels are different. The difference 'h' is a measure of the pressure of the gas inside the flask. If 'h' is equal to 6.5cm, calculate the pressure in the flask in torr, pascals, and atmospheres. (I need help trying to figure out HOW to get the answer, not what the answer is.)

The correct answers are:

6.5 cm = 65.00001052 torr
6.5 cm = 8665.93 Pa
6.5 cm = 0.08552632119 atm

Explanation

The conversion rate from centimeters mercury (cm Hg) to torr is
1 torr = 0.099999983814461 cm.

We have 6.5 cm; this means to convert we divide:
6.5/0.099999983814461 = 65.00001052

The conversion rate from cm Hg to Pascals (Pa) is
1 cm = 1333.22 Pa

We have 6.5 cm; this means to convert we multiply:
6.5(1333.22) = 8665.93

The conversion rate from cm Hg to atmospheres (atm) is
1 atm = 75.999995199606 cm

We have 6.5 cm; this means to convert we divide:
6.5/75.999995199606 = 0.08552632119
