QUESTION POSTED AT 06/12/2019 - 02:57 PM

Answered by admin AT 06/12/2019 - 02:57 PM

Trevor paints 1/6 of the fence surrounding his farm each day. How many days will it take him to paint 3/4 of the fence? 1/6= 0.167 per day
0.1667 So in one day Trevor can paint almost 17% of the fence.

3/4 = 0.75 days=?
0.75 / 0.17 = 4.4

Hence Trevor can paint the surrounding fence of the farm in 4 days, 75% completion.

A painter takes 2 3/5 hours to paint a wall. How many hours will the painter take to paint 8 walls if she works at the same rate?

Answer:

20\frac{4}{5} hours.

Step-by-step explanation:

We have been given that a painter takes 2 3/5 hours to paint a wall. We are asked to find the time taken by painter to paint 8 walls.

To find time taken by painter to paint 8 walls, we will multiply time taken to paint one wall by 8 as:

\text{Time taken to paint 8 walls}=8\times 2\frac{3}{5}

First of all, we will convert our given mixed fraction into improper fraction as shown below:

2\frac{3}{5}=\frac{2\times 5+3}{5}=\frac{10+3}{5}=\frac{13}{5}

\text{Time taken to paint 8 walls}=8\times \frac{13}{5}

\text{Time taken to paint 8 walls}=\frac{8\times 13}{5}

\text{Time taken to paint 8 walls}=\frac{104}{5}

\text{Time taken to paint 8 walls}=\frac{20\times 5+4}{5}

\text{Time taken to paint 8 walls}=20\frac{4}{5}

Therefore, the painter will take 20\frac{4}{5} hours to paint 8 walls.

Kirsten built a rectangular corral with a fence on three sides.A side of the barn served as a short side od the corral.She used 130 m of fencing . The length of the corral was 20 m longer than the width . Find the dimensions of the corral. Choices for the width : 25, 30 , 35 EXPLAIN

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":

Perimeter=2l+w\\\\130=2(w+20)+w\\\\130=2w+40+w\\\\130=3w+40\\\\130-40=3w\\\\90=3w\\\\\dfrac{90}{3}=w\\\\w=30\ m

so, width of corral = 30 m

Length of corral = 30+20 = 50 m

Hence, Second option is correct.

Let's start with part B. if it was originally 10 cm tall and it goes up 0.5 cm. each day, then we know that to go up one cm it needs two days. With that information we can say that 8*2 = 16. So it needs 17 days to go up 8.5 cm which would make it 18.5 cm tall.

The dot plots below show the ages of students belonging to two groups of painting classes: a dot plot shows two divisions labeled group a and group b. the horizontal axis is labeled as age of painting students in years. group a shows 1 dot at 9, 7 dots at 10, 8 dots at 15, 8 dots at 17, and 6 dots at 19. group b shows 6 dots at 10, 5 dots at 14, 6 dots at 18, 5 dots at 25, 4 dots at 28, and 4 dots at 29. based on visual inspection, which group most likely has a lower mean age of painting students? explain your answer using two or three sentences. make sure to use facts to support your answer.

Group A:
1 dot at 9:     1 x    9 =     9
7 dots at 10: 7 x 10 =   70
8 dots at 15: 8 x 15 = 120
8 dots at 17: 8 x 17 = 136
6 dots at 19: 6 x 19 = 114

Mean: (9+70+120+136+114) / (1+7+8+8+6) = 449/30 = 14.97

Group B:
6 dots at 10: 6 x 10 = 60
5 dots at 14: 5 x 14 = 70
6 dots at 18: 6 x 18 = 108
5 dots at 25: 5 x 25 = 125
4 dots at 28: 4 x 28 = 112
4 dots at 29: 4 x 29 = 116

mean: (60+70+108+125+112+116) / (6+5+6+5+4+4) = 591 / 30 = 19.70

The group that has a lower mean age of painting students is Group A. Its mean is 14.97 or 15 years of age.

The opening balance of one of the 31-day billing cycles for suzy's credit card was $7400, but after 15 days suzy made a payment of $4900 to decrease her balance, and it stayed the same for the remainder of the billing cycle. if her credit card's apr is 22%, how much more in interest would she pay for the billing cycle with the previous balance method than with the adjusted balance method?

Given:
31 days = 7,400
15 days = payment of 4,900
16 days = 7,400 - 4,900 = 2,500

Method 1: 
7,400 * 22% * 31/365 = 138.27

Method 2: adjusted balance
7,400 * 22% * 15/365 =  66.90
2,500 * 22% * 16/365 =  24.11
66.90 + 24.11 =  90.21

138.27 - 90.21 = 48.06

She would pay 48.06 more with the previous balance method than with the adjusted balance method.

QUESTION POSTED AT 25/01/2020 - 03:31 PM

Johnson Canniver has a repair shop. He bought a used lawn mower for $35.00 from a customer. He spent $39.17 on parts to repair the mower. He also painted and polished the mower at a cost of $36.43. He was able to sell the refurbished lawn mower for $155.00. If it took 4.5 hours to do all the work, how much did he earn per hour to the nearest cent?

Answer:

He earned approximately $ 9.87 per hour.

Step-by-step explanation:

The given selling price of the lawn mower = $ 155.00

Since, His spending for the lawn = The cost price of the lawn + Spending in parts repair + Spending in polishing and paint

= $35.00 +$39.17 + $36.43

= $ 110.60

Thus, the profit he gain by selling = Selling price - His total spending

= 155.00 - 110.60

= $ 44.4

Since, the procedure took 4.5 hours,

His earning in 4.5 hours = $ 44.4

⇒ His earning in 1 hour = 9.86666666667 ≈ $ 9.87

Hence, he earned approximately $ 9.87 per hour.
