60% of the freshman ate pizza [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/community/x-apple-data-detectors://3']at lunch today[/URL]. If 180 freshman ate pizza, how many freshman are enrolled at our school?
60% of x = 180
We write this as 0.6x = 180
Divide each side by 0.6 to isolate x.
We get x = 300 freshman

(4x - 20)/8 = 9y for x

(4x - 20)/8 = 9y for x
Cross multiply:
4x - 20 = 8 * 9y
4x - 20 = 72y
Add 20 to each side to isolate x:
4x - 20 + 20 = 72y + 20
Cancel the 20 on the left side, we get:
4x = 72y + 20
Divide each side by 4:
4x/4 = (72y + 20)/4
Cancel the 4 on the left side:
x = [B](72y + 20)/4[/B]

-2 <= x +4 < 9

-2 <= x +4 < 9
Subtract 4 from each piece:
-2 - 4 <= x < 5
Simplify:
[B]-6 <= x < 5
[/B]
To find the interval notation, we set up our notation:
[LIST]
[*]The left side has a solid bracket, since we have an equal sign:
[*]The right side has an open parentheses, since we have no equal sign
[*][B][-6, 5)[/B]
[/LIST]

-3x<= -9 or 5+x<6

-3x<= -9 or 5+x<6
Take each piece:
-3x<= -9
Divide each side by -3:
x>=3

5 + x < 6
Subtract 5 from each side:
x < 1
Joining together the two inequalities, we have:
x<1 or x>=3

1 integer is 7 times another. If the product of the 2 integers is 448, then find the integers.

1 integer is 7 times another. If the product of the 2 integers is 448, then find the integers.
Let the first integer be x and the second integer be y. We have the following two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = 7y
[*]xy = 448
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2), we have:
(7y)y = 448
7y^2 = 448
Divide each side by 7
y^2 = 64
y = -8, 8
We use 8, since 8*7 = 56, and 56*8 =448. So the answer is [B](x, y) = (8, 56)[/B]

1/2a-10b=c solve for a

1/2a-10b=c solve for a
Multiply each side of the equation by 2:
2/2a - 2(10)b = 2c
Simplify:
a - 20b = 2c
Add 20b to each side:
a - 20b + 20b = 2c + 20b
Cancel the 20b on the left side:
[B]a = 2c + 20b
[/B]
You can also factor out a 2 on the left side for another version of this answer:
[B]a = 2(c + 10b)[/B]

1/a + 1/b = 1/2 for a

1/a + 1/b = 1/2 for a
Subtract 1/b from each side to solve this literal equation:
1/a + 1/b - 1/b = 1/2 - 1/b
Cancel the 1/b on the left side, we get:
1/a = 1/2 - 1/b
Rewrite the right side, using 2b as a common denominator:
1/a = (b - 2)/2b
Cross multiply:
a(b - 2) = 2b
Divide each side by (b - 2)
a = [B]2b/(b - 2)[/B]

10ac-x/11=3 for a

10ac-x/11=3 for a
Add x/11 to each side of the equation to isolate a:
10ac - x/11 + x/11 = 3 + x/11
Cancelling the x/11 on the left side, we get:
10ac = 3 + x/11
Divide each side by 10c to isolate a:
10ac/10c = 3 + x/11
Cancelling the 10c on the left side, we get:
a = [B]3/10c + x/110c[/B]

15 cats, 10 have stripes, 7 have stripes and green eyes, how many cats have just green eyes

Let G be green eyes and S be Stripes, and SG be Stripes and Green Eyes.
[U]Set up an equation[/U]
Total Cats = Green Eyes + Stripes - Green Eyes and Stripes
15 = G + 10 - 7
15 = G + 3
[U]Subtract 3 from each side:[/U]
[B]G = 12[/B]

15y + 13/c = m for y

15y + 13/c = m for y
Subtract 13/c from each side to isolate the y term:
15y + 13/c - 13/c = m - 13/c
Cancel the 13/c on the left side and we get
15y = m - 13/c
Now, divide each side by 15 to isolate y:
15y/15 = (m - 13/c)/15
Cancel the 15 on the left side, and we get:
y = [B](m - 13/c)/15[/B]

175 students separated into n classes is 25

175/n = 25

175 students separated into n classes is 25

175 students separated into n classes is 25
[U]Divide 175 by n[/U]
175/n
[U]The word [I]is[/I] means equal to, so set this expression equal to 25[/U]
175/n = 25
[U]Cross multiply[/U]
25n = 175
[U]Divide each side by 25[/U]
[B]n = 7[/B]

2 consecutive even integers that equal 118

Let x be the first even integer. That means the next consecutive even integer must be x + 2.
Set up our equation:
x + (x + 2) = 118
Group x terms
2x + 2 = 118
Subtract 2 from each side
2x = 116
Divide each side by 2
x = 58
Which means the next consecutive even integer is 58 + 2 = 60
So our two consecutive even integers are [B]58, 60[/B]
Check our work:
58 + 60 = 118

2 consecutive odd integers such that their product is 15 more than 3 times their sum

2 consecutive odd integers such that their product is 15 more than 3 times their sum.
Let the first integer be n. The next odd, consecutive integer is n + 2.
We are given the product is 15 more than 3 times their sum:
n(n + 2) = 3(n + n + 2) + 15
Simplify each side:
n^2 + 2n = 6n + 6 + 15
n^2 + 2n = 6n + 21
Subtract 6n from each side:
n^2 - 4n - 21 = 0
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=n%5E2-4n-21%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']Type this problem into our search engine[/URL], and we get:
n = (-3, 7)
If we use -3, then the next consecutive odd integer is -3 + 2 = -1. So we have [B](-3, -1)[/B]
If we use 7, then the next consecutive odd integer is 7 + 2 = 9. So we have [B](7, 9)[/B]

2 numbers that add up makes 5 but multiplied makes -36
Let the first number be x and the second number be y. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x + y = 5
[*]xy = -36
[/LIST]
Rearrange equation (1) by subtracting y from each side:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = 5 - y
[*]xy = -36
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) for x into equation (2):
(5 - y)y = -36
5y - y^2 = -36
Add 36 to each side:
-y^2 + 5y + 36 = 0
We have a quadratic equation. To solve this, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=-y%5E2%2B5y%2B36%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=0']type it in our search engine and solve[/URL] to get:

2 numbers that are equal have a sum of 60

2 numbers that are equal have a sum of 60
Let's choose 2 arbitrary variables for the 2 numbers
x, y
Were given 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = y <-- Because we have the phrase [I]that are equal[/I]
[*]x + y = 60
[/LIST]
Because x = y in equation (1), we can substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for x:
y + y = 60
Add like terms to get:
2y = 60
Divide each side by 2:
2y/2 = 60/2
Cancel the 2's and we get:
y = [B]30
[/B]
Since x = y, x = y = 30
x = [B]30[/B]

Divide each side by 36
x = 3/(8 * 36)
x = 1/(8*12)
x = [B]1/96 cm[/B]

3k^3 = rt for t

3k^3 = rt for t
This is a literal equation. Let's divide each side of the equation by r, to isolate t:
3k^3/r = rt/r
Cancel the r's on the right side, and we get:
t = [B]3k^3/r[/B]

4 rectangular strips of wood, each 30 cm long and 3 cm wide, are arranged to form the outer section

4 rectangular strips of wood, each 30 cm long and 3 cm wide, are arranged to form the outer section of a picture frame. Determine the area inside the wooden frame.
Area inside forms a square, with a length of 30 - 3 - 3 = 24. We subtract 3 twice, because we account for 2 rectangular strips with a width of 3.
Area of a square is side * side. So we have 24 * 24 = [B]576cm^2[/B]

5 -8| -2n|=-75

Subtract 5 from each side:
-8|-2n| = -80
Divide each side by -8
|-2n| = 10
Since this is an absolute value equation, we need to setup two equations:
-2n = 10
-2n = -10
Solving for the first one by dividing each side by -2, we get:
n = -5
Solving for the second one by dividing each side by -2, we get:
n = 5

5 books and 5 bags cost $175. What is the cost of 2 books and 2 bags

5 books and 5 bags cost $175. What is the cost of 2 books and 2 bags
Let the cost of each book be b and the cost of each bag be c. We're given
5b + 5c = 175
We can factor this as:
5(b + c) = 175
Divide each side of the equation by 5, we get:
(b + c) = 35
The problem asks for 2b + 2c
Factor out 2:
2(b + c)
we know from above that (b + c) = 35, so we substitute:
2(35)

508 people are there, the daily price is $1.25 for kids and $2.00 for adults. The receipts totaled $885.50. How many kids and how many adults were there?
Assumptions:
[LIST]
[*]Let the number of adults be a
[*]Let the number of kids be k
[/LIST]
Given with assumptions:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + k = 508
[*]2a + 1.25k = 885.50 (since cost = price * quantity)
[/LIST]
Rearrange equation (1) by subtracting c from each side to isolate a:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = 508 - k
[*]2a + 1.25k = 885.50
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2):
2(508 - k) + 1.25k = 885.50
Multiply through:
1016 - 2k + 1.25k = 885.50
1016 - 0.75k = 885.50
To solve for k, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=1016-0.75k%3D885.50&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
k = [B]174[/B]
Now, to solve for a, we substitute k = 174 into equation 1 above:
a = 508 - 174
a = [B]334[/B]

993 cold drinks bottles are to be placed in crates. Each crate can hold 9 bottles. How many crates would be needed and how many bottles will remain?
Let c equal the number of crates
9 bottles per crate * c = 993
9c = 993
Solve for [I]c[/I] in the equation 9c = 993
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Divide each side of the equation by 9[/B][/SIZE]
9c /9 = 993/9
c = 110.33333333333
Since we can't have fractional crates, we round up 1 to the next full crate
c = [B]111[/B]

a +?b +?c =?180 for b

a +?b +?c =?180 for b
We have a literal equation. Subtract (a + c) from each side of the equation to isolate b:
a + b + c - (a + c) = 180 - (a + c)
The (a + c) cancels on the left side, so we have:
[B]b = 180 - (a + c)[/B]
or, distributing the negative sign:
[B]b = 180 - a - c[/B]

a 12 sided die is rolled find the probability of rolling a number greater than 7

a 12 sided die is rolled find the probability of rolling a number greater than 7
We assume this is a fair die, not loaded.
This means each side 1-12 has an equal probability of 1/12 of being rolled.
The problem asks, P(Roll > 7)
Greater than 7 means our sample space is {8, 9, 10, 11, 12}
If each of these 5 faces have an equal probability of being rolled, then we have:
P(Roll > 7) = P(Roll = 8) + P(Roll = 9) + P(Roll = 10) + P(Roll = 11) + P(Roll = 12)
P(Roll > 7) = 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12
P(Roll > 7) =[B] 5/12[/B]

A 3 hour river cruise goes 15 km upstream and then back again. The river has a current of 2 km an hour. What is the boat's speed and how long was the upstream journey?
[U]Set up the relationship of still water speed and downstream speed[/U]
Speed down stream = Speed in still water + speed of the current
Speed down stream = x+2
Therefore:
Speed upstream =x - 2
Since distance = rate * time, we rearrange to get time = Distance/rate:
15/(x+ 2) + 15 /(x- 2) = 3
Multiply each side by 1/3 and we get:
5/(x + 2) + 5/(x - 2) = 1
Using a common denominator of (x + 2)(x - 2), we get:
5(x - 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2) + 5(x + 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2)
(5x - 10 + 5x + 10)/5(x - 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2)
10x = (x+2)(x-2)
We multiply through on the right side to get:
10x = x^2 - 4
Subtract 10x from each side:
x^2 - 10x - 4 = 0

A 50-foot pole and a 70-foot pole are 30 feet apart. If you were to run a line between the tops of the two poles, what is the minimum length of cord you would need?
The difference between the 70 foot and 50 foot pole is:
70 - 50 = 20 foot height difference.
So we have a right triangle, with a height of 20, base of 30. We want to know the hypotenuse.

A 6000 seat theater has tickets for sale at $24 and $40. How many tickets should be sold at each price for a sellout performance to generate a total revenue of $188,800?
Let x be the number of $24 tickets, and y be the number of $40 tickets. We have:
[LIST=1]
[*]24x + 40y = 188,800
[*]x + y = 6,000
[*]Rearrange (2) to solve for x: x = 6000 - y
[*]Plug in (3) to (1):
[/LIST]
24(6000 - y) + 40y = 188800
144,000 - 24y + 40y = 188,800
16y + 144,000 = 188,800
Subtract 144,000 from each side:
16y = 44,800
Divide each side by 16
y = 2,800 ($40 tickets)
Plug this into (2)
x + 2,800 = 6000
Subtract 2,800 from each side:
x = 3,200 ($24 tickets)

A bird was sitting 12 meters from the base of an oak tree and flew 15 meters to reach the top of the tree. How tall is the tree?
So we have a [U]right triangle[/U]. Hypotenuse is 15. Base is 12. We want the length of the leg.
The formula for a right triangle relation of sides is a^2 + b^2 = c^2 where c is the hypotenuse and a, b are the sides
Rearranging this equation to isolate a, we get a^2 = c^2 - b^2
Taking the square root of both sides, we get a = sqrt(c^2 - b^2)
a = sqrt(15^2 - 12^2)
a = sqrt(225 - 144)
a = sqrt(81)
a = [B]9 meters[/B]

a boat traveled 336 km downstream with the current. The trip downstream took 12 hours. write an equation to describe this relationship
We know the distance (d) equation in terms of rate (r) and time (t) as:
d = rt
We're given d = 336km and t = 12 hours, so we have:
[B]336 km = 12t [/B] <-- this is our equation
Divide each side by 12 to solve for t:
12t/12 = 336/12
t = [B]28 km / hour[/B]

A boy is 10 years older than his brother. In 4 years he will be twice as old as his brother. Find the present age of each?
Let the boy's age be b and his brother's age be c. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]b = c + 10
[*]b + 4 = 2(c + 4)
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2):
(c + 10) + 4 = 2(c + 4)
Simplify by multiplying the right side through and grouping like terms:
c + 14 = 2c + 8

A car is purchased for $24,000 . Each year it loses 30% of its value. After how many years will the car be worth $7300 or less? (Use the calculator provided if necessary.) Write the smallest possible whole number answer.
Set up the depreciation equation D(t) where t is the number of years in the life of the car:
D(t) = 24,000/(1.3)^t
The problem asks for D(t)<=7300
24,000/(1.3)^t = 7300
Cross multiply:
7300(1.3)^t = 24,000
Divide each side by 7300
1.3^t = 24000/7300
1.3^t = 3.2877
Take the natural log of both sides:
LN(1.3^t) = LN(3.2877)
Using the natural log identities, we have:
t * LN(1.3) = 1.1902
t * 0.2624 = 1.1902
Divide each side by 0.2624
t = 4.5356
[B]Rounding this up, we have t = 5[/B]

A cashier has 44 bills, all of which are $10 or $20 bills. The total value of the money is $730. How many of each type of bill does the cashier have?
Let a be the amount of $10 bills and b be the amount of $20 bills. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + b = 44
[*]10a + 20b = 730
[/LIST]
We rearrange equation 1 in terms of a. We subtract b from each side and we get:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = 44 - b
[*]10a + 20b = 730
[/LIST]
Now we substitute equation (1) for a into equation (2):
10(44 - b) + 20b = 730
Multiply through to remove the parentheses:
440 - 10b + 20b = 730
Group like terms:
440 + 10b = 730
Now, to solve for b, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=440%2B10b%3D730&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
b = [B]29
[/B]
To get a, we take b = 29 and substitute it into equation (1) above:
a = 44 - 29
a = [B]15
[/B]
So we have [B]15 ten-dollar bills[/B] and [B]29 twenty-dollar bills[/B]

A certain group of woman has a 0.69% rate of red/green color blindness. If a woman is randomly selected, what is the probability that she does not have red/green color blindness?
0.69% = 0.0069.
There exists a statistics theorem for an event A that states:
P(A) + P(A') = 1 where A' is the event not happening
In this case, A is the woman having red/green color blindness. So A' is the woman [U][B][I]not[/I][/B][/U][I] having red/green color blindness[/I]
So we have:
0.0069 + P(A') = 1
Subtract 0.0069 from each side, we get:
P(A') = 1 - 0.0069
P(A') = [B]0.9931[/B]

We want 300 per year for retirements, so let x equal how many years we need to get 2340 reductions.
300x = 2340
Divide each side by 300
x = 7.8 years.
If we want full years, we would do 8 full years

Substitute (1) into (2):
s + 10s = 8 & 1/4
11fs= 33/4 <-- 8 & 1/4 = 33/4
Cross multiply:
44s = 33
Divide each side by 44:
s= 33/44
Divide top and bottom by 11 and we get s [B]= 3/4 or 0.75[/B]
Now substitute this into (1):

A dad gave his 3 sons each the same amount of money in an envelope. He took $20 from one son for getting a D on a math test and he gave another son an extra $35 for doing extra chores. Combined, the sons had $81. Figure out how much each son had.
Let x, y, and z be the money each son received.
To begin, x = y = z.
But then, Dad took 20 from son X and gave it to son Y.
So now, x = y - 20
Next, he gave Son Z an extra $35 for chores
So z is now y + 35 since y and z used to be equal
Combined, they all have 81.
x + y + z = 181
But with the changes, it is:
(y - 20) + y + (y + 35)
Combine like terms:
3y - 20 + 35 = 81
3y + 15 = 81
Subtract 15 from each side:
3y = 66
Divide each side by 3 to isolate y
y = 22
Since x = y - 20, x = 2
Since z = y + 35, we have z = 57
Checking our work, 2 + 22 + 57 = 81.

A food truck sells salads for $6.50 each and drinks for $2.00 each. The food trucks revenue from selling a total of 209 salads and drinks in one day was $836.50. How many salads were sold that day?
Let the number of drinks be d. Let the number of salads be s. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]2d + 6.50s = 836.50
[*]d + s = 209
[/LIST]
We can use substitution to solve this system of equations quickly. The question asks for the number of salads (s). Therefore, we want all expressions in terms of s. Rearrange Equation 2 by subtracting s from both sides:
d + s - s = 209 - s
Cancel the s's, we get:
d = 209 - s
So we have the following system of equations:

A house costs 3.5 times as much as the lot. Together they sold for $135,000. Find the cost of each.
Let the house cost be h, and the lot cost be l. We have the following equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]h = 3.5l
[*]h + l = 135,000
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2)
3.5l + l = 135,000
Combine like terms:
4.5l = 135,000
Divide each side by 4.5 to isolate l
[B]l = 30,000[/B]
Substitute this back into equation (1)
h = 3.5(30,000)

A jet left Nairobi and flew east at an average speed of 231 mph. A passenger plane left four hours l

A jet left Nairobi and flew east at an average speed of 231 mph. A passenger plane left four hours later and flew in the same direction but with an average speed of 385 mph. How long did the jet fly before the passenger plane caught up?
Jet distance = 231t
Passenger plane distance = 385(t - 4)
385(t - 4) = 231t
385t - 1540 = 231t
Subtract 231t from each side
154t = 1540
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=154t%3D1540&pl=Solve']Type 154t = 1540[/URL] into the search engine, we get [B]t = 10.

Check our work:
Jet distance = 231(10) = 2,310
Passenger plane distance = 385(10 - 4) = 385 * 6 = 2,310

A local shop sold 499 hamburgers and cheese burgers. There were 51 fewer cheese burgers sold. How many hamburgers were sold?
Let h = number of hamburgers sold and c be the number of cheeseburgers sold.
We have two equations:
(1) c = h - 51
(2) c + h = 499
Substitute (1) into (2)
h - 51 + h = 499
Combine like terms
2h - 51 = 499
Add 51 to both sides
2h = 550
Divide each side by 2 to isolate h
[B]h = 275[/B]

A man purchased 20 tickets for a total of $225. The tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for children. What was the cost of each ticket?
Declare variables:
[LIST]
[*]Let a be the number of adult's tickets
[*]Let c be the number of children's tickets

Cost = Price * Quantity
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + c = 20
[*]15a + 10c = 225
[/LIST]
Rearrange equation (1) in terms of a:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = 20 - c
[*]15a + 10c = 225
[/LIST]
Now that I have equation (1) in terms of a, we can substitute into equation (2) for a:
15(20 - c) + 10c = 225
Solve for [I]c[/I] in the equation 15(20 - c) + 10c = 225
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses
Simplify 15(20 - c): Distribute the 15 to each term in (20-c)
15 * 20 = (15 * 20) = 300
15 * -c = (15 * -1)c = -15c
Our Total expanded term is 300-15c
Our updated term to work with is 300 - 15c + 10c = 225
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses
Our updated term to work with is 300 - 15c + 10c = 225
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group the c terms on the left hand side:[/B][/SIZE]
(-15 + 10)c = -5c
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Form modified equation[/B][/SIZE]
-5c + 300 = + 225
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 300 and 225. To do that, we subtract 300 from both sides
-5c + 300 - 300 = 225 - 300
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 300 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
-5c = -75
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by -5[/B][/SIZE]
-5c/-5 = -75/-5
c = [B]15[/B]
Recall from equation (1) that a = 20 - c. So we substitute c = 15 into this equation to solve for a:
a = 20 - 15
a = [B]5[/B]

A number multiplied by 6 and divided by 5 give four more than a number?
A number is represented by an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
Multiply by 6:
6x
Divide by 5
6x/5
The word "gives" means equals, so we set this equal to 4 more than a number, which is x + 4.
6x/5 = x + 4
Now, multiply each side of the equation by 5, to eliminate the fraction on the left hand side:
6x(5)/5 = 5(x + 4)
The 5's cancel on the left side, giving us:

A parking meter contains 27.05 in quarters and dimes. All together there are 146 coins. How many of each coin are there?
Let d = the number of dimes and q = the number of quarters. We have two equations:
(1) d + q = 146
(2) 0.1d + 0.25q = 27.05
Rearrange (1) into (3) solving for d
(3) d = 146 - q
Substitute (3) into (2)
0.1(146 - q) + 0.25q = 27.05
14.6 - 0.1q + 0.25q = 27.05
Combine q's
0.15q + 14.6 = 27.05
Subtract 14.6 from each side
0.15q = 12.45
Divide each side by 0.15
[B]q = 83[/B]
Plugging that into (3), we have:
d = 146 - 83

Group like terms:
(1/3 + 1)s + 2000 = 30000
Since 1 = 3/3, we have:
4/3s + 2000 = 30000
Subtract 2000 from each side:
4/3s + 2000 - 2000 = 30000 - 2000

A population grows at 6% per year. How many years does it take to triple in size?
With a starting population of P, and triple in size means 3 times the original, we want to know t for:
P(1.06)^t = 3P
Divide each side by P, and we have:
1.06^t = 3
Typing this equation into our search engine to solve for t, we get:

A private jet flies the same distance in 4 hours that a commercial jet flies in 2 hours. If the speed of the commercial jet was 154 mph less than 3 times the speed of the private jet, find the speed of each jet.
Let p = private jet speed and c = commercial jet speed. We have two equations:
(1) c = 3p - 154
(2) 4p =2c
Plug (1) into (2):
4p = 2(3p - 154)
4p = 6p - 308
Subtract 4p from each side:
2p - 308 = 0
Add 308 to each side:
2p = 308
Divide each side by 2:
[B]p = 154[/B]
Substitute this into (1)
c = 3(154) - 154
c = 462 - 154
[B]c = 308[/B]

A quarter of the learners in a class have blond hair and two thirds have brown hair. The rest of the learners in the class have black hair. How many learners in the class if 9 of them have blonde hair?
Total learners = Blond + Brown + Black
Total Learners = 1/4 + 2/3 + Black
Total Learners will be 1, the sum of all fractions
1/4 + 2/3 + Black = 1
Using common denominators of 12, we have:
3/12 + 8/12 + Black = 12/12
11/12 + Black = 12/12
Subtract 11/12 from each side:
Black = 1/12
Let t be the total number of people in class. We are given for blondes:
1/4t = 9
Multiply each side by 4
[B]t = 36[/B]
Brown Hair
2/3(36) = 24

A realtor makes an annual salary of $25000 plus a 3% commission on sales. If a realtor's salary is $67000, what was the amount of her sales?
Total post-salary pay = $67,000 - $25,000 = $42,000
Let Sales be s.
So 0.03s = $42,000
Divide each side by 0.03
s = $1,400,000

a recipe of 20 bread rolls requires 5 tablespoons of butter. How many tablespoons of butter are need

a recipe of 20 bread rolls requires 5 tablespoons of butter. How many tablespoons of butter are needed for 30 bread rolls?
Set up a proportion of bread rolls per tablespoons of butter where t is the amount of tablespoons of butter needed for 30 bread rolls:
20/5 = 30/t
Cross multiply our proportion:
Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2
20t = 30 * 5
20t = 150
Divide each side of the equation by 20:
20t/20 = 150/20
Cancel the 20's on the left side and we get:
t = [B]7.5[/B]

a rectangle has an area of 238 cm 2 and a perimeter of 62 cm. What are its dimensions?

a rectangle has an area of 238 cm 2 and a perimeter of 62 cm. What are its dimensions?
We know the rectangle has the following formulas:
Area = lw
Perimeter = 2l + 2w
Given an area of 238 and a perimeter of 62, we have:
[LIST=1]
[*]lw = 238
[*]2(l + w) = 62
[/LIST]
Divide each side of (1) by w:
l = 238/w
Substitute this into (2):
2(238/w + w) = 62
Divide each side by 2:
238/w + w = 31
Multiply each side by w:
238w/w + w^2 = 31w
Simplify:
238 + w^2 = 31w
Subtract 31w from each side:
w^2 - 31w + 238 = 0
We have a quadratic. So we run this through our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=w%5E2-31w%2B238%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']quadratic equation calculator[/URL] and we get:

A rectangular football pitch has its length equal to twice its width and a perimeter of 360m. Find i

A rectangular football pitch has its length equal to twice its width and a perimeter of 360m. Find its length and width.
The area of a rectangle (A) is:
A = lw --> where l is the length and w is the width
We're given l = 2w, so we substitute this into the Area equation:
A = (2w)w
A = 2w^2
We're given the area of the pitch is 360, so we set:
2w^2 = 360
We [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2w%5E2%3D360&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL], follow the links, and get:
w = [B]6*sqrt(5)
[/B]
Now we take this, and substitute it into this equation:
6*sqrt(5)l = 360
Dividing each side by 6*sqrt(5), we get:
l = [B]60/sqrt(5)[/B]

A rectangular garden is 5 ft longer than it is wide. Its area is 546 ft2. What are its dimensions?

A rectangular garden is 5 ft longer than it is wide. Its area is 546 ft2. What are its dimensions?
[LIST=1]
[*]Area of a rectangle is lw. lw = 546ft^2
[*]We know that l = w + 5.
[/LIST]
Substitute (2) into (1)
(w + 5)w = 546
w^2 + 5w = 546
Subtract 546 from each side
w^2 + 5w - 546 = 0
Using the positive root in our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=w%5E2%2B5w-546%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']quadratic calculator[/URL], we get [B]w = 21[/B].
This means l = 21 + 5.
[B]l = 26[/B]

A retired couple invested $8000 in bonds. At the end of one year, they received an interest payment

A retired couple invested $8000 in bonds. At the end of one year, they received an interest payment of $584. What was the simple interest rate of the bonds?
For simple interest, we have:
Balance * interest rate = Interest payment
8000i = 584
Divide each side of the equation by 8000 to isolate i:
8000i/8000 = 584/8000
Cancelling the 8000's on the left side, we get:
i = 0.073
Most times, interest rates are expressed as a percentage.
Percentage interest = Decimal interest * 100%
Percentage interest = 0.073 * 100%
Multiplying by 100 is the same as moving the decimal point two places right:
Percentage interest = [B]7.3%[/B]

A Salesperson receives a weekly salary of $100 plus a 5.5% commission on sales. Her salary last week

A Salesperson receives a weekly salary of $100 plus a 5.5% commission on sales. Her salary last week was $1090. What were her sales that week?
$1,090 - 100 = $990.
This is her commission.
Let s = Sales.
So 0.055s = $990
Divide each side by 0.055.
s = $18,000

A skier is trying to decide whether or not to buy a season ski pass. A daily pass costs $75. A season ski pass costs $350. The skier would have to rent skis with either pass for $20 per day. How many days would the skier have to go skiing in order to make the season pass less expensive than the daily passes?
Let d be the number of days:
Daily Plan cost: 75d + 20d = 95d
Season Pass: 350 + 20d
We want to find d such that
350 + 20d < 95d
Subtract 20d from each side
75d > 350
Divide each side by 75
d > 4.66667
[B]d = 5[/B]

a son is 1/4 of his fathers age. the difference in their ages is 30. what is the fathers age.
Declare variables:
[LIST]
[*]Let f be the father's age
[*]Let s be the son's age
[/LIST]
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]s = f/4
[*]f - s = 30. [I]The reason why we subtract s from f is the father is older[/I]
[/LIST]
Using substitution, we substitute equaiton (1) into equation (2) for s:
f - f/4 = 30
To remove the denominator/fraction, we multiply both sides of the equation by 4:
4f - 4f/4 = 30 *4
4f - f = 120
3f = 120
To solve for f, we divide each side of the equation by 3:
3f/3 = 120/3
Cancel the 3's on the left side and we get:
f = [B]40[/B]

A spherical water tank holds 11,500ft^3 of water. What is the diameter?

A spherical water tank holds 11,500ft^3 of water. What is the diameter?
The tank holding amount is volume. And the volume of a sphere is:
V = (4pir^3)/3
We know that radius is 1/2 of diameter:
r =d/2
So we rewrite our volume function:
V = 4/3(pi(d/2)^3)
We're given V = 11,500 so we have:
4/3(pi(d/2)^3) = 11500
Multiply each side by 3/4
4/3(3/4)(pi(d/2)^3) = 11,500*3/4
Simplify:
pi(d/2)^3 = 8625
Since pi = 3.1415926359, we divide each side by pi:
(d/2)^3 = 8625/3.1415926359
(d/2)^3 = 2745.42
Take the cube root of each side:
d/2 = 14.0224
Multiply through by 2:
[B]d = 28.005[/B]

A square of an integer is the integer. Find the integer.

A square of an integer is the integer. Find the integer.
Let the integer be n. The square means we raise n to the power of 2, so we have:
n^2 = n
Subtract n from each side:
n^2 - n = n - n
n^2 - n = 0
Factoring this, we get:
n(n - 1) = 0
So n is either [B]0 or 1[/B].

a stone mason builds 7 houses in 3 days. How many days does it take to build 11 houses?
The build rate of houses per days is proportional. Set up a proportion of [I]houses to days[/I] where d is the number of days it takes to build 11 houses:
7/3 = 11/d
Cross multiply:
Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2
7d = 11 * 3
7d = 33
Divide each side of the equation by 7:
7d/7 = 33/7
d = [B]4.7142857142857[/B]

A store owner bought 240 cartons of eggs. The owner sold 5/8 of the eggs and set aside 5 cartons. How many cartons of eggs did the owner have left to sale?
If the owner sold 5/8 of the eggs, they have 1 - 5/8 left.
1 = 8/8, so we have 8/8 - 5/8 = 3/8 left
3/8 (240 cartons) = 90 cartons remaining
The owner set aside 5 cartons.
We're left with 90 cartons - 5 cartons = [B]85 cartons[/B]

A sum of money doubles in 20 years on simple interest. It will get triple at the same rate in: a. 40 years b. 50 years c. 30 years d. 60 years e. 80 years
Simple interest formula if we start with 1 dollar and double to 2 dollars:
1(1 + i(20)) = 2
1 + 20i = 2
Subtract 1 from each side:
20i = 1
Divide each side by 20
i = 0.05
Now setup the same simple interest equation, but instead of 2, we use 3:
1(1 + 0.05(t)) = 3

Divide each side by 0.05
[B]t = 40 years[/B]

A super deadly strain of bacteria is causing the zombie population to double every day. Currently, t

A super deadly strain of bacteria is causing the zombie population to double every day. Currently, there are 25 zombies. After how many days will there be over 25,000 zombies?
We set up our exponential function where n is the number of days after today:
Z(n) = 25 * 2^n
We want to know n where Z(n) = 25,000.
25 * 2^n = 25,000
Divide each side of the equation by 25, to isolate 2^n:
25 * 2^n / 25 = 25,000 / 25
The 25's cancel on the left side, so we have:
2^n = 1,000
Take the natural log of each side to isolate n:
Ln(2^n) = Ln(1000)
There exists a logarithmic identity which states: Ln(a^n) = n * Ln(a). In this case, a = 2, so we have:
n * Ln(2) = Ln(1,000)
0.69315n = 6.9077

A taxi charges a flat rate of 1.75, plus an additional 0.65 per mile. If Erica has at most 10 to spend on the cab ride, how far could she travel?
Setup an equation where x is the number of miles traveled:
0.65x + 1.75 = 10
Subtract 1.75 from each side:
0.65x = 8.25
Divide each side by 0.65
[B]x = 12.69 miles[/B]
If we do full miles, we round down to 12.

a textbook store sold a combined total of 296 sociology and history text books in a week. the number

a textbook store sold a combined total of 296 sociology and history text books in a week. the number of history textbooks sold was 42 less than the number of sociology textbooks sold. how many text books of each type were sold?
Let h = history book and s = sociology books. We have 2 equations:
(1) h = s - 42
(2) h + s = 296
Substitute (1) to (2)
s - 42 + s = 296
Combine variables
2s - 42 = 296
Add 42 to each side
2s = 338
Divide each side by 2
s = 169
So h = 169 - 42 = 127

A tow truck charges a service fee of $50 and an additional fee of $1.75 per mile. What distance was

A tow truck charges a service fee of $50 and an additional fee of $1.75 per mile. What distance was Marcos car towed if he received a bill for $71
Set up a cost equation C(m) where m is the number of miles:
C(m) = Cost per mile * m + Service Fee
Plugging in the service fee of 50 and cost per mile of 1.75, we get:
C(m) = 1.75m + 50
The question asks for what m is C(m) = 71. So we set C(m) = 71 and solve for m:
1.75m + 50 = 71
Solve for [I]m[/I] in the equation 1.75m + 50 = 71
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 50 and 71. To do that, we subtract 50 from both sides
1.75m + 50 - 50 = 71 - 50
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel 50 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
1.75m = 21
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Divide each side of the equation by 1.75[/B][/SIZE]
1.75m/1.75 = 21/1.75
m = [B]12[/B]

A vendor sells h hot dogs and s sodas. If a hot dog costs twice as much as a soda, and if the vendor

A vendor sells h hot dogs and s sodas. If a hot dog costs twice as much as a soda, and if the vendor takes in a total of d dollars, how many cents does a soda cost?
Let the cost of the soda be p. So the cost of a hot dog is 2p.
The total cost of hot dogs:
2hp
The total cost of sodas:
ps
The total cost of both equals d. So we set the total cost of hots dogs plus sodas equal to d:
2hp + ps = d
We want to know the cost of a soda (p). So we have a literal equation. We factor out p from the left side:
p(2h + s) = d
Divide each side of the equation by (2h + s)
p(2h + s)/(2h + s) = d/(2h + s)
Cancel the (2h + s) on the left side, we get:
p = [B]d/(2h + s[/B])

A young dad, who was a star football player in college, set up a miniature football field for his five-year-old young daughter, who was already displaying an unusual talent for place-kicking. At each end of the mini-field, he set up goal posts so she could practice kicking extra points and field goals. He was very careful to ensure the goalposts were each straight up and down and that the crossbars were level. On each set, the crossbar was six feet long, and a string from the top of each goalpost to the midpoint between them on the ground measured five feet. How tall were the goalposts? How do you know this to be true?
The center of each crossbar is 3 feet from each goalpost. We get this by taking half of 6, since midpoint means halfway.
Imagine a third post midway between the two goal posts. It has the same height as the two goalposts.

Dividing each side by 2, we get;
m = 3a/2
Since m = 3j/4 from equation #1, we have:
3j/4 = 3a/2
Cross multiply:

Barney has $450 and spends $3 each week. Betty has $120 and saves $8 each week. How many weeks will

Barney has $450 and spends $3 each week. Betty has $120 and saves $8 each week. How many weeks will it take for them to have the same amount of money?
Let w be the number of weeks that go by for saving/spending.
Set up Barney's balance equation, B(w). Spending means we [U]subtract[/U]
B(w) = Initial Amount - spend per week * w weeks
B(w) = 450 - 3w
Set up Betty's balance equation, B(w). Saving means we [U]add[/U]
B(w) = Initial Amount + savings per week * w weeks
B(w) = 120 + 8w
The same amount of money means both of their balance equations B(w) are equal. So we set Barney's balance equal to Betty's balance and solve for w:
450 - 3w = 120 + 8w
Add 3w to each side to isolate w:
450 - 3w + 3w = 120 + 8w + 3w
Cancelling the 3w on the left side, we get:
450 = 120 + 11w
Rewrite to have constant on the right side:
11w + 120 = 450
Subtract 120 from each side:
11w + 120 - 120 = 450 - 120
Cancelling the 120's on the left side, we get:
11w = 330
To solve for w, we divide each side by 11
11w/11 = 330/11
Cancelling the 11's on the left side, we get:
w = [B]30

Consider the formula for the area of a trapezoid: A=12h(a+b) . Is it mathematically simpler to solve

Consider the formula for the area of a trapezoid: A=12h(a+b) . Is it mathematically simpler to solve for a, b, or h? Why? Solve for each of these variables to demonstrate.
The variable "h" is the easiest to solve for. Because you only have one step. Let's review:
Divide each side of the equation by 12(a + b)
h = 12(a + b)/A
Solving for "a", we two steps. Divide each side by 12h:
A/12h = a + b
Subtract b from each side
a = A/12h - b
Solving for "b" takes two steps as well. Divide each side by 12h:
A/12h = a + b
Subtract a from each side
b = A/12h - a

Deon opened his account starting with $650 and he is going to take out $40 per month. Mai opened up her account with a starting amount of $850 and is going to take out $65 per month. When would the two accounts have the same amount of money?
We set up a balance equation B(m) where m is the number of months.
[U]Set up Deon's Balance equation:[/U]
Withdrawals mean we subtract from our current balance
B(m) = Starting Balance - Withdrawal Amount * m
B(m) = 650 - 40m
[U]Set up Mai's Balance equation:[/U]
Withdrawals mean we subtract from our current balance
B(m) = Starting Balance - Withdrawal Amount * m
B(m) = 850 - 65m
When the two accounts have the same amount of money, we can set both balance equations equal to each other and solve for m:
650 - 40m = 850 - 65m
Solve for [I]m[/I] in the equation 650 - 40m = 850 - 65m
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group variables:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our variables -40m and -65m. To do that, we add 65m to both sides
-40m + 650 + 65m = -65m + 850 + 65m
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel -65m on the right side:[/B][/SIZE]
25m + 650 = 850
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 650 and 850. To do that, we subtract 650 from both sides
25m + 650 - 650 = 850 - 650
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 650 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
25m = 200
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by 25[/B][/SIZE]
25m/25 = 200/25

Emily is three years older than twice her sister Mary’s age. The sum of their ages is less than 30.

Emily is three years older than twice her sister Mary’s age. The sum of their ages is less than 30. What is the greatest age Mary could be?
Let e = Emily's age and m = Mary's age.
We have the equation e = 2m + 3 and the inequality e + m < 30
Substitute the equation for e into the inequality:
2m + 3 + m < 30
Add the m terms
3m + 3 < 30
Subtract 3 from each side of the inequality
3m < 27
Divide each side of the inequality by 3 to isolate m
m < 9
Therefore, the [B]greatest age[/B] Mary could be is 8, since less than 9 [U]does not include[/U] 9.

Explain the steps you would take to find an equation for the line perpendicular to 4x - 5y = 20 and

Explain the steps you would take to find an equation for the line perpendicular to 4x - 5y = 20 and sharing the same y-intercept
Get this in slope-intercept form by adding 5y to each side:
4x - 5y + 5y = 5y + 20
Cancel the 5y's on the left side and we get:
5y + 20 = 4x
Subtract 20 from each side
5y + 20 - 20 = 4x - 20
Cancel the 20's on the left side and we get:
5y = 4x - 20
Divide each side by 5:
5y/5 = 4x/5 - 4
y = 4x/5 - 4
So we have a slope of 4/5
to find our y-intercept, we set x = 0:
y = 4(0)/5 - 4
y = 0 - 4
y = -4
If we want a line perpendicular to the line above, our slope will be the negative reciprocal:
The reciprocal of 4/5 is found by flipping the fraction making the numerator the denominator and the denominator the numerator:
m = 5/4
Next, we multiply this by -1:
-5/4
So our slope-intercept of the perpendicular line with the same y-intercept is:
[B]y = -5x/4 - 4[/B]

ey/n + k = t for y

ey/n + k = t for y
Let's take this literal equation in pieces:
Subtract k from each side:
ey/n + k - k = t - k
Cancel the k's on the left side, we have:
ey/n = t - k
Now multiply each side by n:
ney/n = n(t - k)
Cancel the n's on the left side, we have:
ey = n(t - k)
Divide each side by e:
ey/e = n(t - k)/e
Cancel the e's on the left side, we have:
[B]y = n(t - k)/e[/B]

f - g = 1/4b for b

f - g = 1/4b for b
Multiply each side of the equation by 4 to remove the 1/4 and isolate b:
4(f - g) = 4/4b
4/4 = 1, so we have:
b = [B]4(f - g)[/B]
[I]the key to this problem was multiplying by the reciprocal of the constant[/I]

f(x)=a(b)^x and we know that f(3)=17 and f(7)=3156. what is the value of b

f(x)=a(b)^x and we know that f(3)=17 and f(7)=3156. what is the value of b
Set up both equations with values
When x = 3, f(3) = 17, so we have a(b)^3 = 17
When x = 7, f(7) = 3156, so we have a(b)^7 = 3156
Isolate a in each equation
a = 17/(b)^3
a = 3156/(b)^7
Now set them equal to each other
17/(b)^3 = 3156/(b)^7
Cross Multiply
17b^7 = 3156b^3
Divide each side by b^3
17b^4 = 3156
Divide each side by 17
b^4 = 185.6471
[B]b = 3.6912[/B]

f+g/e=r for g

Divide each side by -N
[B]L = -DF/BN[/B]

Farmer Yumi has too many plants in her garden. If she starts out with 150 plants and is losing them

Farmer Yumi has too many plants in her garden. If she starts out with 150 plants and is losing them at a rate of 4% each day, how long will it take for her to have 20 plants left? Round UP to the nearest day.
We set up the function P(d) where d is the number of days sine she started losing plants:
P(d) = Initial plants * (1 - Loss percent / 100)^d
Plugging in our numbers, we get:
20 = 150 * (1 - 4/100)^d
20 = 150 * (1 - 0.04)^d
Read left to right so it's easier to read:
150 * 0.96^d = 20
Divide each side by 150, and we get:
0.96^d = 0.13333333333
To solve this logarithmic equation for d, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/natlog.php?num=0.96%5Ed%3D0.13333333333&pl=Calculate']type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
d = 49.35
The problem tells us to round up, so we round up to [B]50 days[/B]

Find a linear function f, given f(16)=-2 and f(-12)=-9. Then find f(0)

Find a linear function f, given f(16)=-2 and f(-12)=-9. Then find f(0).
We've got 2 points:
(16, -2) and (-12, -9)
Calculate the slope (m) of this line using:
m = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)
m = (-9 - -2)/(-12 - 16)
m = -7/-28
m = 1/4
The line equation is denoted as:
y = mx + b
Let's use the first point (x, y) = (16, -2)
-2 = 1/4(16) + b
-2 = 4 + b
Subtract 4 from each side, and we get:
b = -6
So our equation of the line is:
y = 1/4x - 6
The questions asks for f(0):
y = 1/4(0) - 6
y = 0 - 6
[B]y = -6[/B]

find all sets of two consecutive positive odd integers whose sum is no greater than 18

So x + y <=18
y = x + 1
x + x + 1 <=18
2x + 1 <= 18

2x <= 17
x<=8.5 --> 8
So we have {(0,1),(1,2),(2,3),(3,4),(4,5),(5,6),(6,7),(7,8),(8,9)}

find the difference between a mountain with an altitude of 1,684 feet above sea level and a valley

find the difference between a mountain with an altitude of 1,684 feet above sea level and a valley 216 feet below sea level.
Below sea level is the same as being on the opposite side of zero on the number line. To get the difference, we do the following:
1,684 - (-216)
Since subtracting a negative is a positive, we have:
1,684 + 216
[B]1,900 feet[/B]

Find two consecutive integers if the sum of their squares is 1513

Find two consecutive integers if the sum of their squares is 1513
Let the first integer be n. The next consecutive integer is (n + 1).
The sum of their squares is:
n^2 + (n + 1)^2 = 1513
n^2 + n^2 + 2n + 1 = 1513
2n^2 + 2n + 1 = 1513
Subtract 1513 from each side:
2n^2 + 2n - 1512 = 0

Find two consecutive positive integers such that the sum of their squares is 25

Find two consecutive positive integers such that the sum of their squares is 25.
Let the first integer be x. The next consecutive positive integer is x + 1.
The sum of their squares equals 25. We write this as::
x^2 + (x + 1)^2
Expanding, we get:
x^2 + x^2 + 2x + 1 = 25
Group like terms:
2x^2 + 2x + 1 = 25
Subtract 25 from each side:
2x^2 + 2x - 24 = 0
Simplify by dividing each side by 2:
x^2 + x - 12 = 0
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=x%5E2%2Bx-12%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']quadratic calculator[/URL], we get x = 3 or x = -4. The problem asks for positive integers, so we discard -4, and use 3.
This means, our next positive integer is 3 + 1 = 4. So we have [B](3, 4) [/B]as our answers.
Let's check our work:
3^2 + 4^2 = 9 + 16 = 25

With m = 3, we have:
3 = (5 - y)/(4 - 1)
3 = (5 - y)/3
Cross multiply:
5 - y = 9
Subtract 5 from each side
-y = 4
Multiply each side by -1
[B]y = -4[/B]

I only own blue blankets and red blankets. 8 out of every 15 blankets I have are red.

I only own blue blankets and red blankets. 8 out of every 15 blankets I have are red. If have i 45 blankets, how many are blue?
If 8 out of 15 blankets are red, then 15 - 8 = 7 are blue
So 7 out of every 15 blankets are blue.
Set up a proportion of blue blankets to total blankets where b is the number of blue blankets in 45 blankets
7/15 = b/45
Cross multiply:
If 2 proportions are equal, then we can do the following:
Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2
15b = 45 * 7
15b = 315
To solve for b, divide each side of the equation by 15:

C) (a + b)/b = 10/7
D) (a - 2b)/b = -11/7
We can rewrite (a - b)/b as:
a/b - b/b = 3/7
Since b/b = 1, we have:
a/b - 1 = 3/7
Since -1 = -7/7, we have:
a/b - 7/7 = 3/7
Add 7/7 to each side:

If 2 is added to the numerator and denominator it becomes 9/10 and if 3 is subtracted from the numer

If 2 is added to the numerator and denominator it becomes 9/10 and if 3 is subtracted from the numerator and denominator it become 4/5. Find the fractions.
Convert 2 to a fraction with a denominator of 10:
20/2 = 10, so we multiply 2 by 10/10:
2*10/10 = 20/10
Add 2 to the numerator and denominator:
(n + 2)/(d + 2) = 9/10
Cross multiply and simplify:
10(n + 2) = 9(d + 2)
10n + 20 = 9d + 18
Move constants to right side by subtracting 20 from each side and subtracting 9d:
10n - 9d = -2
Subtract 3 from the numerator and denominator:
(n - 3)/(d - 3) = 4/5
Cross multiply and simplify:
5(n - 3) = 4(d - 3)
5n - 15 = 4d - 12
Move constants to right side by adding 15 to each side and subtracting 4d:
5n - 4d = 3
Build our system of equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]10n - 9d = -2
[*]5n - 4d = 3
[/LIST]
Multiply equation (2) by -2:
[LIST=1]
[*]10n - 9d = -2
[*]-10n + 8d = -6
[/LIST]
Now add equation (1) to equation (2)
(10 -10)n (-9 + 8)d = -2 - 6
The n's cancel, so we have:
-d = -8
Multiply through by -1:
d = 8
Now bring back our first equation from before, and plug in d = 8 into it to solve for n:
10n - 9d = -2
10n - 9(8) = -2
10n - 72 = -2
To solve for n, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=10n-72%3D-2&pl=Solve']plug this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
n = 7
So our fraction, n/d = [B]7/8[/B]

4x + 7 - xy = -6
Add 7 to each side:
4x - xy = -6 - 7
4x - xy = -13
Factor out x:
x(4 - y) = -13
Divide each side of the equation by (4 - y)
[B]x = -13/(4 - y)[/B]

If 800 feet of fencing is available, find the maximum area that can be enclosed.

If 800 feet of fencing is available, find the maximum area that can be enclosed.
Perimeter of a rectangle is:
2l + 2w = P
However, we're given one side (length) is bordered by the river and the fence length is 800, so we have:
So we have l + 2w = 800
Rearranging in terms of l, we have:
l = 800 - 2w
The Area of a rectangle is:
A = lw
Plug in the value for l in the perimeter into this:
A = (800 - 2w)w
A = 800w - 2w^2
Take the [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/dfii.php?term1=800w+-+2w%5E2&fpt=0&ptarget1=0&ptarget2=0&itarget=0%2C1&starget=0%2C1&nsimp=8&pl=1st+Derivative']first derivative[/URL]:
A' = 800 - 4w

4w = 800
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=4w%3D800&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get:
w = 200
Now plug this into our perimeter equation:
l = 800 - 2(200)
l = 800 - 400
l = 400
The maximum area to be enclosed is;
A = lw
A = 400(200)
A = [B]80,000 square feet[/B]

if a + b = 2 and a2 - b2 = -4, what is the value of a - b?

if a+b=2 and a2-b2=-4, what is the value of a-b?
a^2 - b^2 = -4
Factor this:
(a + b)(a - b) = -4
We know from above, (a +b) = 2, so substitute:
2(a - b) = -4
Divide each side by 2
[B](a - b) = -2[/B]

If EF = 9x - 17, FG = 17x - 14, and EG = 20x + 17, what is FG?

If EF = 9x - 17, FG = 17x - 14, and EG = 20x + 17, what is FG?
By segment addition, we know that:
EF + FG = EG
Substituting in our values for the 3 segments, we get:
9x - 17 + 17x - 14 = 20x + 17
Group like terms and simplify:
(9 + 17)x + (-17 - 14) = 20x - 17
26x - 31 = 20x - 17
Solve for [I]x[/I] in the equation 26x - 31 = 20x - 17
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group variables:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our variables 26x and 20x. To do that, we subtract 20x from both sides
26x - 31 - 20x = 20x - 17 - 20x
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel 20x on the right side:[/B][/SIZE]
6x - 31 = -17
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants -31 and -17. To do that, we add 31 to both sides
6x - 31 + 31 = -17 + 31
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 31 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
6x = 14

10 = 3x^2 + 6x + 1
[U]Subtract 10 from each side:[/U]
3x^2 + 6x - 9 = 0
Divide each side of the equation by 3
x^2 + 2x - 3 = 0
Factor, we have: (x + 3)(x - 1) = 0
So x is either [B]1 or -3[/B]

If f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c and f(0) = 1 and f(-1) = 3, what is a - b

If f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c and f(0) = 1 and f(-1) = 3, what is a - b
Evaluate f(0)
f(0) = a(0^2) + b(0) + c
f(0) = a(0) + b(0) + c
f(0) = c
Since f(0) = 1, we have
c = 1
Evaluate f(-1)
f(-1) = a(-1^2) + b(-1) + c
f(-1) = a(1) - b + c
f(-1) = a - b + c
Since f(-1) = 3, we have:
a - b + c = -3
We learned above that f(0) = 1, so c = 1. Plug c = 1 into f(-1)
a - b + 1 = -3
Subtract 1 from each side:
a - b + 1 - 1 = -3 - 1
Cancel the 1's on the left side and we get:
a - b = [B]-4[/B]

If the speed of an aeroplane is reduced by 40km/hr, it takes 20 minutes more to cover 1200m. Find th

If the speed of an aeroplane is reduced by 40km/hr, it takes 20 minutes more to cover 1200m. Find the time taken by aeroplane to cover 1200m initially.
We know from the distance formula (d) using rate (r) and time (t) that:
d = rt
Regular speed:
1200 = rt
Divide each side by t, we get:
r = 1200/t
Reduced speed. 20 minutes = 60/20 = 1/3 of an hour. So we multiply 1,200 by 3
3600 = (r - 40)(t + 1/3)
If we multiply 3 by (t + 1/3), we get:
3t + 1
So we have:
3600 = (r - 40)(3t + 1)
Substitute r = 1200/t into the reduced speed equation:
3600 = (1200/t - 40)(3t + 1)
Multiply through and we get:
3600 = 3600 - 120t + 1200/t - 40
Subtract 3,600 from each side
3600 - 3600 = 3600 - 3600 - 120t + 1200/t - 40
The 3600's cancel, so we get:
- 120t + 1200/t - 40 = 0
Multiply each side by t:
-120t^2 - 40t + 1200 = 0
We've got a quadratic equation. To solve for t, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=-120t%5E2-40t%2B1200%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type this in our search engine[/URL] and we get:

j - m/4 = 4k for m

j - m/4 = 4k for m
Multiply each side by 4:
4j - 4m/4 = 4(4k)
Simplify:
4j - m = 16k
Add m to each side:
4j - m + m = 16k + m
The m's cancel on the left side, so we have:
4j = 16k + m
Subtract 16k from each side:
4j - 16k = 16k - 16k + m
The 16k cancels on the right side, so we're left with:
[B]m = 4j - 16k or 4(j - 4k)[/B]

Jill made 122 muffins. She put them into 3 boxes and has two muffins left. How many are in each box if they all contain the same amount of muffins?
Let m equal the number of muffins per box.
We're told that we have 3 boxes and 2 muffins left after filling up all 3 boxes.
3m + 2 = 122
To solve for m, we subtract 2 from each side:
3m + 2 - 2 = 122 - 2
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get:
3m = 120
Divide each side by 3 to isolate m:
3m/3 = 120/3
Cancel the 3's on the left side and we get:

Set this equal to 99.2
2(x + 20) = 99.2
Divide each side by 2:
x + 20 = 49.6
Subtract 20 from each side:
x = [B]29.6[/B]

Jonathan earns a base salary of $1500 plus 10% of his sales each month. Raymond earns $1200 plus 15%

Jonathan earns a base salary of $1500 plus 10% of his sales each month. Raymond earns $1200 plus 15% of his sales each month. How much will Jonathan and Raymond have to sell in order to earn the same amount each month?
[U]Step 1: Set up Jonathan's sales equation S(m) where m is the amount of sales made each month:[/U]
S(m) = Commission percentage * m + Base Salary
10% written as a decimal is 0.1. We want decimals to solve equations easier.
S(m) = 0.1m + 1500
[U]Step 2: Set up Raymond's sales equation S(m) where m is the amount of sales made each month:[/U]
S(m) = Commission percentage * m + Base Salary
15% written as a decimal is 0.15. We want decimals to solve equations easier.
S(m) = 0.15m + 1200
[U]The question asks what is m when both S(m)'s equal each other[/U]:
The phrase [I]earn the same amount [/I]means we set Jonathan's and Raymond's sales equations equal to each other
0.1m + 1500 = 0.15m + 1200
We want to isolate m terms on one side of the equation.
Subtract 1200 from each side:
0.1m + 1500 - 1200 = 0.15m + 1200 - 1200
Cancel the 1200's on the right side and we get:
0.1m - 300 = 0.15m
Next, we subtract 0.1m from each side of the equation to isolate m
0.1m - 0.1m + 300 = 0.15m - 0.1m
Cancel the 0.1m terms on the left side and we get:
300 = 0.05m
Flip the statement since it's an equal sign to get the variable on the left side:
0.05m = 300
To solve for m, we divide each side of the equation by 0.05:
0.05m/0.05 = 300/0.05
Cancelling the 0.05 on the left side, we get:
m = [B]6000[/B]

900 + 256 = Hypotenuse^2
Hypotenuse^2 = 1156
Take the square root of each side:

Julia owes 18.20 for the month of November. Her plan costs 9.00 for the first 600 text messages and .10 cents for additional texts. How many texts did she send out?
Let m be the number of messages. We have a cost function of:
C(m) = 9 + 0.1(m - 600)
We are given C(m) = 18.20
18.20 = 9 + 0.1(m - 600)
18.20 = 9 + 0.1m - 60
Combine like terms:
18.20 = 0.1m - 51
Add 51 to each side
0.1m = 69.20
Divide each side by 0.1
[B]m = 692[/B]

We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]l = s + 12
[*]l + s = 74

Equation (1) already has l solved for. Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for l:
s + 12 + s = 74
Solve for [I]s[/I] in the equation s + 12 + s = 74
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group the s terms on the left hand side:[/B][/SIZE]

[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Form modified equation[/B][/SIZE]
2s + 12 = + 74
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 12 and 74. To do that, we subtract 12 from both sides
2s + 12 - 12 = 74 - 12
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 12 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
2s = 62

[/LIST]
We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]l = s + 4
[*]l + s = 40

To get this problem in terms of the larger number l, we rearrange equation (1) in terms of l.
Subtract 4 from each side in equation (1)
l - 4 = s + 4 - 4
Cancel the 4's and we get:
s = l - 4
Our given equations are now:

Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for s:
l + l - 4 = 40
Grouping like terms for l, we get:
2l - 4 = 40
Add 4 to each side:
2l - 4 + 4 = 40 + 4
Cancelling the 4's on the left side, we get
2l = 44
Divide each side of the equation by 2 to isolate l:
2l/2 = 44/2
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get:

Leslie has 8 pencils. She has 9 fewer pencils than Michelle. How many pencils does Michelle have?

Let m = the number of pencils Michelle has.
So, Leslie has m - 9 = 8.
Add 9 to both sides:
m = 17. So Michelle has 17 pencils, and Leslie has 8, which is 9 fewer than 17

Let P(n) and S(n) denote the product and the sum, respectively, of the digits of the integer n. For

Let P(n) and S(n) denote the product and the sum, respectively, of the digits of the integer n. For example, P(23) = 6 and S(23) = 5. Suppose N is a two-digit number such that N = P(N) + S(N). What could N be? Is there more than one answer?
For example, for 23 P(23) = 6 and S(23) = 5, but 23 could not be the N that we want since 23 <> 5 + 6
Let t = tens digit and o = ones digit
P(n) = to
S(n) = t + o
P(n) + S(n) = to + t + o
N = 10t + o
Set them equal to each other N = P(N) + S(N)
10t + o = to + t + o
o's cancel, so we have
10t = to + t
Subtract t from each side, we have
9t = to
Divide each side by t
o = 9
So any two-digit number with 9 as the ones digit will work:
[B]{19,29,39,49,59,69,79,89,99}[/B]

Liz harold has a jar in her office that contains 47 coins. Some are pennies and the rest are dimes. If the total value of the coins is 2.18, how many of each denomination does she have?
[U]Set up two equations where p is the number of pennies and d is the number of dimes:[/U]
(1) d + p = 47
(2) 0.1d + 0.01p = 2.18
[U]Rearrange (1) into (3) by solving for d[/U]
(3) d = 47 - p
[U]Substitute (3) into (2)[/U]
0.1(47 - p) + 0.01p = 2.18
4.7 - 0.1p + 0.01p = 2.18
[U]Group p terms[/U]
4.7 - 0.09p = 2.18
[U]Add 0.09p to both sides[/U]
0.09p + 2.18 = 4.7
[U]Subtract 2.18 from both sides[/U]
0.09p = 2.52
[U]Divide each side by 0.09[/U]
[B]p = 28[/B]
[U]Now substitute that back into (3)[/U]

M/n = p-6 for m

M/n = p-6 for m
Solve this literal equation by multiplying each side by n to isolate M:
Mn/n = n(p - 6)
Cancelling the n terms on the left side, we get:
[B]M = n(p - 6)[/B]

m/x = k-6 for m

m/x = k-6 for m
To solve this literal equation, multiply each side by x:
x(m/x) = x(k - 6)
The x's cancel on the left side, so we get:
m = [B]x(k - 6)[/B]

m=u/k-r/k for k

m=u/k-r/k for k
Multiply both sides by k to eliminate the k denominator:
km = uk/k - rk/k
Cancel the k's on the right side and we get
km = u - r
Divide each side by m:
km/m = (u - r)/m
Cancel the m on the left side:
[B]k = (u - r)/m[/B]

Marissa has 24 coins in quarters and nickels. She has 3 dollars. How many of the coins are quarters?

Let n be the number of nickels and q be the number of quarters.
We have two equations:
(1) n + q = 24
(2) 0.05n + 0.25q = 3
Rearrange (1) to solve for n in terms of q for another equation (3)
(3) n = 24 - q
Plug (3) into (2)
0.05(24 - q) + 0.25q = 3
Multiply through:
1.2 - 0.05q + 0.25q = 3
Combine q terms
0.2q + 1.2 = 3
Subtract 1.2 from each side:
0.2q = 1.8
Divide each side by 0.2
[B]q = 9[/B]

Michelle and Julie sold 65 cupcakes. If Julie sold 9 more cupcakes than Michelle, how many cupcakes

Michelle and Julie sold 65 cupcakes. If Julie sold 9 more cupcakes than Michelle, how many cupcakes did each of them sell?
Let m = Michelle's cupcakes and j = Julie's cupcakes.
We have two equations:
m + j = 65
j = m + 9
Substituting, we get:
m + (m + 9) = 65
Combine like terms, we get:
2m + 9 = 65
Subtract 9 from each side:
2m = 56
Divide each side by 2 to isolate m
m = 28
If m = 28, then j = 28 + 9 = 37
So (m, j) = (28, 37)

Notebooks cost $1.39 each. What are the possible numbers of notebooks that can be purchased with $10

Notebooks cost $1.39 each. What are the possible numbers of notebooks that can be purchased with $10?
Let n be the number of notebooks you can purchase. We have the following inequality:

p/q = f/q- f for f

p/q = f/q- f for f
Isolate f in this literal equation.
Factor out f on the right side:
p/q = f(1/q - 1)
Rewriting the term in parentheses, we get:
p/q = f(1 - q)/q
Cross multiply:
f = pq/q(1 - q)
Cancelling the q/q on the right side, we get:
f = [B]p/(1 - q)[/B]

p/q=f/q-f for f

p/q=f/q-f for f
To solve this literal equation for f, let's factor out f on the right side:
p/q=f(1/q-1)
Divide each side by (1/q - 1)
p/(q(1/q - 1)) = f(1/q-1)/(1/q - 1)
Cancelling the (1/q - 1) on the right side, we get:
f = p/(1/q - 1)
Rewriting this since (1/q -1) = (1 - q)/q since q/q = 1 we have:
f = [B]pq/(1 - q)[/B]

Perimeter of a rectangle is 372 yards. If the length is 99 yards, what is the width?

Perimeter of a rectangle is 372 yards. If the length is 99 yards, what is the width?
The perimeter P of a rectangle with length l and width w is:
2l + 2w = P
We're given P = 372 and l = 99, so we have:
2(99) + 2w = 372
2w + 198 = 372
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 198 and 372. To do that, we subtract 198 from both sides
2w + 198 - 198 = 372 - 198
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel 198 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
2w = 174

Q is a point on segment PR. If PQ = 2.7 and PR = 6.1, what is QR?

Q is a point on segment PR. If PQ = 2.7 and PR = 6.1, what is QR?
From segment addition, we know that:
PQ + QR = PR
Plugging our given numbers in, we get:
2.7 + QR = 6.1
Subtract 2.7 from each side, and we get:
2.7 - 2.7 + QR = 6.1 - 2.7
Cancelling the 2.7 on the left side, we get:
QR = [B]3.4[/B]

Shalini gave 0.4 of her plums to her brother and 20% to her sister. She kept 16 for herself. How many plums did she have first?
Let's convert everything to decimals. 20% = 0.2
So Shalini gave 0.4 + 0.2 = 0.6 of the plums away. Which means she has 1 = 0.6 = 0.4 or 40% left over.
40% represents 16 plums
So our equation is 0.4p = 16 where p is the number of plums to start with
Divide each side by 0.4

Cancelling the 11's on the left side, we get:
-1/2y = 6x - 8 <-- Since 3 - 11 = -8
Multiply both sides of the equation by -2 to remove the -1/2 on the left side:

1/2(2/5) = 1/5 since the 2's cancel
r^2/r^2 = 1
So we simplify, and get:
mgh=1/2mv^2+1/5(mv^2) for v
Divide each side by m, so m's cancel in each term on the left and right side:
gh = 1/2v^2 + 1/5(v^2)
Combine like terms for v^2 on the right side:
1/2 + 1/5 = 7/10 from our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1%2F2&frac2=1%2F5&pl=Add']fraction calculator[/URL]
So we have:
gh = 7v^2/10
Multiply each side by 10:
10gh = 7v^2
Now divide each side by 7
10gh/7 = v^2
Take the square root of each side:
[B]v = sqrt(10gh/7)[/B]

i. After how many seconds will Sophie catch Claire?
ii. If the race is 500 feet, who wins?
i.
Sophie's distance formula is given as D = 5s
Claire's distance formula is given as D = 3s + 100
Set them equal to each other
5s = 3s + 100
Subtract 3s from both sides:
2s = 100
Divide each side by 2
[B]s = 50[/B]
ii. [B]Sophie since after 50 seconds, she takes the lead and never gives it back.[/B]

Squares

Solve for Area of a square, Perimeter of a square, side of a square, diagonal of a square.

Squaring a number equals 5 times that number

Squaring a number equals 5 times that number.
The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
Squaring this number:
x^2
5 times this number means we multiply by 5:
5x
The phrase [I]equals[/I] means we set both expressions equal to each other:
[B]x^2 = 5x [/B] <-- This is our algebraic expression
If you want to solve for x, then we subtract 5x from each side:
x^2 - 5x = 5x - 5x
Cancel the 5x on the right side, leaving us with 0:
x^2 - 5x = 0
Factor out x:
x(x - 5)
So we get x = 0 or [B]x = 5[/B]

Stacy sells art prints for $12 each. Her expenses are $2.50 per print, plus $38 for equipment. How many prints must she sell for her revenue to equal her expenses?
Let the art prints be p
Cost function is 38 + 2p
Revenue function is 12p
Set cost equal to revenue
12p = 38 + 2p
Subtract 2p from each side
10p = 38
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=10p%3D38&pl=Solve']equation calculator[/URL] gives us [B]p = 3.8[/B]

Steven has some money. If he spends $9, then he will have 3/5 of the amount he started with.
Let the amount Steven started with be s. We're given:
s - 9 = 3s/5
Multiply each side through by 5 to eliminate the fraction:
5(s - 9) = 5(3s/5)
Cancel the 5's on the right side and we get:
5s - 45 = 3s
To solve for s, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=5s-45%3D3s&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
s = [B]22.5[/B]

Sum of a number and it's reciprocal is 6. What is the number?
Let the number be n.
The reciprocal is 1/n.
The word [I]is[/I] means an equation, so we set n + 1/n equal to 6
n + 1/n = 6
Multiply each side by n to remove the fraction:
n^2 + 1 = 6n
Subtract 6n from each side:
[B]n^2 - 6n + 1 = 0 [/B]<-- This is our algebraic expression
If the problem asks you to solve for n, then you [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=n%5E2-6n%2B1%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']type this quadratic equation into our search engine[/URL].

Super Snack, a convenience store, charges $4.35 for a large chicken sandwich and two large colas. For a large chicken sandwich and a large cola, they charge $4.00. How much are the Super Snack large chicken sandwiches?
The difference between the orders is $0.35 and 1 large cola. Therefore, 1 large cola = $0.35.
And if we use the first order of one large chicken sandwich and one large cola, we get:
Large Chicken Sandwich + 0.35 = 4.35
Subtract 0.35 from each side, and we get:
Large Chicken Sandwich = $[B]4.00[/B]

Suppose Briley has 10 coins in quarters and dimes and has a total of 1.45. How many of each coin doe

Suppose Briley has 10 coins in quarters and dimes and has a total of 1.45. How many of each coin does she have?
Set up two equations where d is the number of dimes and q is the number of quarters:
(1) d + q = 10
(2) 0.1d + 0.25q = 1.45
Rearrange (1) into (3) to solve for d
(3) d = 10 - q
Now plug (3) into (2)
0.1(10 - q) + 0.25q = 1.45
Multiply through:
1 - 0.1q + 0.25q = 1.45
Combine q terms
0.15q + 1 = 1.45
Subtract 1 from each side
0.15q = 0.45
Divide each side by 0.15
[B]q = 3[/B]
Plug our q = 3 value into (3)
d = 10 - 3
[B]d = 7[/B]

Suppose that the weight (in pounds) of an airplane is a linear function of the amount of fuel (in ga

Suppose that the weight (in pounds) of an airplane is a linear function of the amount of fuel (in gallons) in its tank. When carrying 20 gallons of fuel, the airplane weighs 2012 pounds. When carrying 55 gallons of fuel, it weighs 2208 pounds. How much does the airplane weigh if it is carrying 65 gallons of fuel?
Linear functions are written in the form of one dependent variable and one independent variable. Using g as the number of gallons and W(g) as the weight, we have:
W(g) = gx + c where c is a constant
We are given:
[LIST]
[*]W(20) = 2012
[*]W(55) = 2208
[/LIST]
We want to know W(65)
Using our givens, we have:
W(20) = 20x + c = 2012
W(55) = 55x + c = 2208
Rearranging both equations, we have:
c = 2012 - 20x
c = 2208 - 55x
Set them both equal to each other:
2012 - 20x = 2208 - 55x
Add 55x to each side:
35x + 2012 = 2208
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=35x%2B2012%3D2208&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we see that x is 5.6
Plugging x = 5.6 back into the first equation, we get:
c = 2012 - 20(5.6)
c = 2012 - 112
c = 2900
Now that we have all our pieces, find W(65)
W(65) = 65(5.6) + 2900
W(65) = 264 + 2900
W(65) = [B]3264[/B]

T = mg - mf for f

T = mg - mf for f
Subtract mg from each side:
T - mg = mg - mg - mf
Cancel the mg on the right side and we get:
T - mg = -mf
Multiply each side by -1:
-(T - mg) = -(-mf)
mg - T = mf
Now Divide each side by m to isolate f:
(mg - T)/m = mf/m
Cancel the m on the right side and we get:
f = [B](mg - T)/m[/B]

tammy earns $18000 salary with 4% comission on sales. How much should she sell to earn $55,000 total

tammy earns $18000 salary with 4% comission on sales. How much should she sell to earn $55,000 total
We have a commission equation below:
Sales * Commission percent = Salary
We're given 4% commission percent and 55,000 salary. With 4% as 0.04, we have:
Sales * 0.04 = 55,000
Divide each side of the equation by 0.04, and we get:
Sales = [B]1,375,000[/B]

The average of a number and double the number is 25.5

Let x equal "a number".
Double the number is 2x.
The average is (x + 2x)/2
Combine the terms in the numerator:
3x/2
The word [I]is[/I] means equal to, so we set 3x/2 equal to 25.5
3x/2 = 25.5
Cross multiply the 2:
3x = 51
Divide each side by 3
[B]x = 17[/B]

The base of a triangle with a height of 7 units is represented by the formula b=2/7A. The base of the triangle is less than 10 units. Write and solve an inequality that represents the possible area A of the triangle
We're given:
b=2/7A
We're also told that b is less than 10. So we have:
2/7A < 10
2A/7 < 10
Cross multiply:
2A < 7 * 10
2A < 70
Divide each side of the inequality by 2 to isolate A
2A/2 < 70/2
Cancel the 2's on the left side and we get:
A < [B]35[/B]

The club uses the function S(t) = -4,500t + 54,000 to determine the salvage S(t) of a fertilizer ble

The club uses the function S(t) = -4,500t + 54,000 to determine the salvage S(t) of a fertilizer blender t years after its purchase. How long will it take the blender to depreciate completely?
Complete depreciation means the salvage value is 0.
So S(t) = 0. We need to find t to make S(t) = 0
-4,500t + 54,000 = 0
Subtract 54,000 from each side
-4,500t = -54,000
Divide each side by -4,500
[B]t = 12[/B]

The cost of renting a rototiller is $19.50 for the first hour and $7.95 for each additional hour. How long can a person have the rototiller if the cost must be less than $95?
Setup the inequality:
$19.50 + $7.95x < $95
Subtract 19.50 from both sides:
7.95x < 75.50
Divide each side of the inequality by 7.95 to isolate x
x < 9.5
The next lowest integer is 9. So we take 9 + the first hour of renting to get [B]10 total hours[/B].
Check our work:
$7.95 * 9.5 + $19.50
$71.55 + $19.50 = $91.05

Add 48 to each side:
3x^2 = 48
Divide each side by 3:
x^2 = 16
Therefore, x = -4, 4
Test f(4)
f(4) = 4^3 - 48(4)
f(4) = 64 - 192
f(4) = [B]-128 <-- Local minimum[/B]
Test f(-4)
f(-4) = -4^3 - 48(-4)
f(-4) = -64 + 192

The function P(x) = -30x^2 + 360x + 785 models the profit, P(x), earned by a theatre owner on the basis of a ticket price, x. Both the profit and the ticket price are in dollars. What is the maximum profit, and how much should the tickets cost?
Take the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/dfii.php?term1=-30x%5E2+%2B+360x+%2B+785&fpt=0&ptarget1=0&ptarget2=0&itarget=0%2C1&starget=0%2C1&nsimp=8&pl=1st+Derivative']derivative of the profit function[/URL]:
P'(x) = -60x + 360
We find the maximum when we set the profit derivative equal to 0
-60x + 360 = 0
Subtract 360 from both sides:
-60x = -360
Divide each side by -60
[B]x = 6 <-- This is the ticket price to maximize profit[/B]
Substitute x = 6 into the profit equation:
P(6) = -30(6)^2 + 360(6) + 785
P(6) = -1080 + 2160 + 785
[B]P(6) = 1865[/B]

The graph of a polynomial f(x) = (2x - 3)(x - 4)(x + 3) has x-intercepts at 3 values. What are they?

The graph of a polynomial f(x) = (2x - 3)(x - 4)(x + 3) has x-intercepts at 3 values. What are they?
A few things to note:
[LIST]
[*]X-intercepts are found when y (or f(x)) is 0.
[*]On the right side, we have 3 monomials.
[*]Therefore, y or f(x) could be 0 when [U]any[/U] of these monomials is 0
[/LIST]
The 3 monomials are:
[LIST=1]
[*]2x - 3 = 0
[*]x - 4 = 0
[*]x + 3 = 0
[/LIST]
Find all 3 x-intercepts:
[LIST=1]
[*]2x - 3 = 0. [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2x-3%3D0&pl=Solve']Using our equation calculator[/URL], we see that x = [B]3/2 or 1.5[/B]
[*]x - 4 = 0 [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=x-4%3D0&pl=Solve']Using our equation calculator[/URL], we see that x = [B]4[/B]
[*]x + 3 = 0 [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=x%2B3%3D0&pl=Solve']Using our equation calculator[/URL], we see that x = [B]-3[/B]

So our 3 x-intercepts are:
x = [B]{-3, 3/2, 4}[/B]

The height of an object t seconds after it is dropped from a height of 300 meters is s(t)=-4.9t^2 +3

The height of an object t seconds after it is dropped from a height of 300 meters is s(t)=-4.9t^2 +300. Find the average velocity of the object during the first 3 seconds? (b) Use the Mean value Theorem to verify that at some time during the first 3 seconds of the fall the instantaneous velocity equals the average velocity. Find that time.
Average Velocity:
[ f(3) - f(0) ] / ( 3 - 0 )
Calculate f(3):
f(3) = -4.9(3^2) + 300
f(3) = -4.9(9) + 300
f(3) = -44.1 + 300
f(3) = 255.9
Calculate f(0):
f(0) = -4.9(0^2) + 300
f(0) = 0 + 300
f(0) = 300
So we have average velocity:
Average velocity = (255.9 - 300)/(3 - 0)
Average velocity = -44.1/3
Average velocity = -[B]14.7
[/B]
Velocity is the first derivative of position
s(t)=-4.9t^2 +300
s'(t) = -9.8t
So we set velocity equal to average velocity:
-9.8t = -14.7
Divide each side by -9.8 to solve for t, we get [B]t = 1.5[/B]

The length of a rectangular building is 6 feet less than 3 times the width. The perimeter is 120 fee

The length of a rectangular building is 6 feet less than 3 times the width. The perimeter is 120 feet. Find the width and length of the building.
P = 2l + 2w
Since P = 120, we have:
(1) 2l + 2w = 120
We are also given:
(2) l = 3w - 6
Substitute equation (2) into equation (1)
2(3w - 6) + 2w = 120
Multiply through:
6w - 12 + 2w = 120
Combine like terms:
8w - 12 = 120
Add 12 to each side:
8w = 132
Divide each side by 8 to isolate w:
w =16.5
Now substitute w into equation (2)
l = 3(16.5) - 6
l = 49.5 - 6
l = 43.5
So (l, w) = (43.5, 16.5)

The length of the flag is 2 cm less than 7 times the width. The perimeter is 60cm. Find the length a

The length of the flag is 2 cm less than 7 times the width. The perimeter is 60cm. Find the length and width.
A flag is a rectangle shape. So we have the following equations
Since P = 2l + 2w, we have 2l + 2w = 60
l = 7w - 2
Substitute Equation 1 into Equation 2:
2(7w -2) + 2w = 60
14w - 4 + 2w = 60
16w - 4 = 60
Add 4 to each side
16w = 64
Divide each side by 16 to isolate w
w = 4
Which means l = 7(4) - 2 = 28 - 2 = 26

The perimeter of a rectangle is 400 meters. The length is 15 meters less than 4 times the width. Fin

The perimeter of a rectangle is 400 meters. The length is 15 meters less than 4 times the width. Find the length and the width of the rectangle.
l = 4w - 15
Perimeter = 2l + 2w
Substitute, we get:
400 = 2(4w - 15) + 2w
400 = 8w - 30 + 2w
10w - 30 = 400
Add 30 to each side
10w = 370
Divide each side by 10 to isolate w
w = 37
Plug that back into our original equation to find l
l = 4(37) - 15
l = 148 - 15
l = 133
So we have (l, w) = (37, 133)

[LIST]
[*]h = b + 70
[*]A = 1/2bh = 3000
[/LIST]
Substitute the height equation into the area equation
1/2b(b + 70) = 3000
Multiply each side by 2
b^2 + 70b = 6000
Subtract 6000 from each side:
b^2 + 70b - 6000 = 0
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=b%5E2%2B70b-6000%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']quadratic calculator[/URL], we get:
b = 50 and b = -120
Since the base cannot be negative, we use b = 50.
If b = 50, then h = 50 + 70 = 120
The perimeter is b + h + hypotenuse
Using the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/righttriangle.php?angle_a=&a=70&angle_b=&b=50&c=&pl=Calculate+Right+Triangle']right-triangle calculator[/URL], we get hypotenuse = 86.02
Adding up all 3 for the perimeter: 50 + 70 + 86.02 = [B]206.02[/B]

4 = (r +24)/10
Cross multiply:
r + 24 = 40
Subtract 24 from each side:

3 = (r - 4)/3
Cross multiply:
r - 4 = 9
Add 4 to each side:
[B]r = 13[/B]

[U]Substitute (2) into (1)[/U]
(y - 4)y = 96
y^2 - 4y = 96
[U]Subtract 96 from both sides:[/U]
y^2 - 4y - 96 = 0
[U]Factoring using our quadratic calculator, we get:[/U]
(y - 12)(y + 8)
So y = 12 and y = -8. Since the problem states positive numbers, we use [B]y = 12[/B].

The sum of the ages of levi and renee is 89 years. 7 years ago levi's age was 4 times renees age. How old is Levi now?
Let Levi's current age be l. Let Renee's current age be r. Were given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]l + r = 89
[*]l - 7 = 4(r - 7)
[/LIST]
Simplify equation 2 by multiplying through:

Rearranging equation (1), we get:
x = 10 - y
Substitute this into simplified equation (2):
10(10 - y) = 14y + 4

The sum of the digits of a certain two-digit number is 16. Reversing its digits increases the number

The sum of the digits of a certain two-digit number is 16. Reversing its digits increases the number by 18. What is the number?
Let x and (16-x) represent the original ten and units digits respectively
Reversing its digits increases the number by 18
Set up the relational equation
[10x + (16-x)] + 18 = 10(16 - x) + x
Solving for x
9x + 34 = 160 - 9x
Combine like terms
18x = 126
Divide each side of the equation by 18
18x/18 = 126/18
x = 7
So 16 - x = 16 - 7 = 9
The first number is 79, the other number is 97. and 97 - 79 = 18 so we match up.

3x + 3 = 42
Subtract 3 from each side:
3x = 39
Divide each side of the equation by 3:
[B]x = 13
So y = x + 1 = 14
z = x + 2 = 15
(x,y,z) = (13,14,15)[/B]

The sum of twice an integer and 3 times the next consecutive integer is 48

2n
3 times the next consecutive integer means we multiply (n + 1) by 3
3(n + 1)
The sum of these is:
2n + 3(n + 1)
The word [I]is[/I] means equal to, so we set 2n + 3(n + 1) equal to 48:
2n + 3(n + 1) = 48
Solve for [I]n[/I] in the equation 2n + 3(n + 1) = 48
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses
Simplify 3(n + 1): Distribute the 3 to each term in (n+1)

The total age of three cousins is 48. Suresh is half as old as Hakima and 4 years older than Saad. h

The total age of three cousins is 48. Suresh is half as old as Hakima and 4 years older than Saad. How old are the cousins?
Let a be Suresh's age, h be Hakima's age, and c be Saad's age. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + h + c = 48
[*]a = 0.5h
[*]a = c + 4

[*]a + h + c = 48
[*]h = 2a
[*]c = a - 4
[/LIST]
Plug (2) and (3) into (1)
a + (2a) + (a - 4) = 48
Group like terms:
(1 + 2 + 1)a - 4 = 48
4a - 4 = 48

twice the difference of a number and 3 is equal to 3 times the sum of a number and 2

twice the difference of a number and 3 is equal to 3 times the sum of a number and 2.
We've got 2 algebraic expressions here. Let's take them in parts.
Left side algebraic expression: twice the difference of a number and 3
[LIST]
[*]The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
[*]The word [I]difference[/I] means we subtract 3 from the variable x
[*]x - 3
[*]Twice this difference means we multiply (x - 3) by 2
[*]2(x - 3)
[/LIST]
Right side algebraic expression: 3 times the sum of a number and 2
[LIST]
[*]The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
[*]The word [I]sum[/I] means we add 2 to the variable x
[*]x + 2
[*]3 times the sum means we multiply (x + 2) by 3
[*]3(x + 2)
[/LIST]
Now, we have both algebraic expressions, the problem says [I]is equal to[/I]
This means we have an equation, where we set the left side algebraic expression equal to the right side algebraic expression using the equal sign (=) to get our answer
[B]2(x - 3) = 3(x + 2)[/B]

twice the difference of a number and 55 is equal to 3 times the sum of a number and 8

twice the difference of a number and 55 is equal to 3 times the sum of a number and 8
Take this algebraic expression in pieces.
Left side: The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
x
The difference of this number and 55 means we subtract 55 from x
x - 55
Twice the difference means we multiply x - 55 by 2
2(x - 55)
Right side: The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
x
The sum of a number and 8 means we add 8 to x
x + 8
3 times the sum means we multiply x + 8 by 3
3(x + 8)
Now that we have the left and right side of the expressions, we see the phrase [I]is equal to[/I]. This means an equation, so we set the left side equal to the right side:
[B]2(x - 55) = 3(x + 8)[/B]

two mechanics worked on a car. the first mechanic worked for 10 hours, and the second mechanic worke

two mechanics worked on a car. the first mechanic worked for 10 hours, and the second mechanic worked for 5 hours. together they charged a total of 1225. what was the rate charged per hour by each mechanic if the sum of the two rates was 170 per hour?
Set up two equations:
(1) 10x + 5y = 1225
(2) x + y = 170
Rearrange (2)
x = 170 - y
Substitute that into (1)
10(170 - y) + 5y = 1225
1700 - 10y + 5y = 1225
1700 - 5y = 1225
Move 5y to the other side
5y + 1225 = 1700
Subtract 1225 from each side
5y =475
Divide each side by 5
[B]y = 95[/B]
Which means x = 170 - 95, [B]x = 75[/B]

[U]Substitute (3) into (1):[/U]
(17 + y) + y = 83
[U]Group y terms[/U]
2y + 17 = 83
[U]Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2y%2B17%3D83&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we get:[/U]
[B]y = 33

Video store movie rental plans. Plan A 25 membership fee plus 1.25 for movie. Plan B 40 for unlimited rentals. What number of movies rentals is plan B less than plan A?
Let x equal the number of movies rented and C the cost for rentals
Plan A: C = 1.25x + 25
Plan B: C = 40
Set up the inequality:

Divide each side of the inequality by 1.25
x > 12
So [B]13[/B] rentals or more make Plan B less than Plan A.

When 3 consecutive positive integers are multiplied, the product is 16 times the sum of the 3 integers. What is the difference of the product minus the sum?
Let the 3 consecutive positive integers be:
[LIST=1]
[*]x
[*]x + 1
[*]x + 2
[/LIST]
The product is:
x(x + 1)(x + 2)
The sum is:
x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 3x + 3
We're told the product is equivalent to:
x(x + 1)(x + 2) = 16(3x + 3)
x(x + 1)(x + 2) = 16 * 3(x + 1)
Divide each side by (x + 1)
x(x + 2) = 48
x^2 + 2x = 48
x^2 + 2x - 48 = 0
Now subtract the sum from the product:
x^2 + 2x - 48 - (3x + 3)
[B]x^2 - x - 51[/B]

When 4 times a number is increased by 40, the answer is the same as when 100 is decreased by the num

When 4 times a number is increased by 40, the answer is the same as when 100 is decreased by the number. Find the number
The phrase [I]a number, [/I]means an arbitrary variable, let's call it "x".
4 times a number, increased by 40, means we multiply 4 times x, and then add 40
4x + 40
100 decreased by the number means we subtract x from 100
100 - x
The problem tells us both of these expressions are the same, so we set them equal to each other:
4x + 40 = 100 - x
Add x to each side:
4x + x + 40 = 100 - x + x
The x's cancel on the right side, so we have:
5x + 40 = 100
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=5x%2B40%3D100&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get [B]x = 12[/B].

Which of the following equations represents a line that is parallel to the line with equation y = -3

Which of the following equations represents a line that is parallel to the line with equation y = -3x + 4?
A) 6x + 2y = 15
B) 3x - y = 7
C) 2x - 3y = 6
D) x + 3y = 1
Parallel lines have the same slope, so we're looking for a line with a slope of 3, in the form y = mx + b. For this case, we want a line with a slope of -3, like our given line.
If we rearrange A) by subtracting 6x from each side, we get:
2y = -6x + 15
Divide each side by 2, we get:
y = -3x + 15/2
This line is in the form y = mx + b, where m = -3. So our answer is [B]A[/B].

writing and solving equations

Your answer is correct.
Here is how I set up the profit equation where h is the hours worked and x is the supply cost:
P(h) = 15.35h + x
We know P(4) = 141.73
P(4) = 15.35(4) + x
141.73 = 15.35(4) + x
Simplify
141.73 = 61.4 + x
Subtract 61.4 from each side:
[B]x = 80.33[/B]

wy - ma = ay/n for y

wy - ma = ay/n for y
Subtract ay/n from each side:

wy - ay/n = ma
Factor out y:
y(w - a/n) = ma
Divide each side by (w - a/n)
y = [B]ma/(w - a/n)[/B]

x + 8y/4 = 9y for x

x + 8y/4 = 9y for x
Step 1: Isolate x by subtracting 8y/4 from each side:

x - 5y = 6 for x

x - 5y = 6 for x
Add 5y to each side to solve this literal equation for x.
x - 5y + 5y = 6 + 5y
Cancel the 5y on each side, we get:
x = [B]6 + 5y[/B]

x is a multiple of 6 and 1 ? x ? 16

x is a multiple of 6 and 1 ? x ? 16.
We want multiples of 6 between 1 and 16.
We start with 6.
Another multiple of 6 is 12
The next multiple of 6 is 18, which is out side the range of 1 ? x ? 16.
So our number set is [B]x = {6, 12}[/B]

X varies directly with the cube root of y when x=1 y=27. Calculate y when x=4

X varies directly with the cube root of y when x=1 y=27. Calculate y when x=4
Varies directly means there is a constant k such that:
x = ky^(1/3)
When x = 1 and y = 27, we have:
27^1/3(k) = 1
3k = 1
To solve for k, we[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3k%3D1&pl=Solve'] type in our equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
k = 1/3
Now, the problem asks for y when x = 4. We use our variation equation above with k = 1/3 and x = 4:
4 = y^(1/3)/3
Cross multiply:
y^(1/3) = 4 * 3
y^(1/3) =12
Cube each side:
y^(1/3)^3 = 12^3
y = [B]1728[/B]

X+y/3=5 for x

(X+y)/3=5 for x
Cross multiply:
x + y = 15
Subtract y from each side:
[B]x = 15 - y[/B]

x-m=n+p, for x

x-m=n+p, for x
Add m to each side:
x - m + m = n + p + m
Cancelling the m's on each side:
x = [B]n + p + m[/B]

x/3 - g = a for x

x/3 - g = a for x
Add g to each side so we can isolate the x term:
x/3 - g + g = a + g
Cancel the g terms on the left side and we get:
x/3 = a + g
Multiply each side by 3 to isolate x:
3(x/3) = 3(a + g)
Cancelling the 3's on the left side, we get:
x = [B]3(a + g)[/B]

x/5-7=2q for x

x/5-7=2q for x
Add 7 to each side:
x/5 -7 + 7 = 2q + 7
Cancel the 7's on the left side, we get:
x/5 = 2q + 7
Cross multiply the 5:
x = 5(2q + 7)
x = [B]10q + 35[/B]

x/r - h = 4 for x

x/r - h = 4 for x
Add h to each side:
x/r - h + h = h + 4
Cancel the h's on the left side, we get:
x/r = h + 4
Multiply each side by r to isolate x:
xr/r = r(h + 4)
Cancel the r's on the left side, we get:
x = [B]r(h + 4)[/B]

x/y + 9 = n for y

x/y + 9 = n for y
First, subtract 9 from each side to isolate the y term:
x/y + 9 - 9 = n - 9
Cancel the 9's on the left side, and we get:
x/y = n - 9
Cross multiply:
x = y(n - 9)
Divide each side by (n - 9):
x/(n - 9) = y(n - 9)/(n - 9)
Cancel the (n - 9) on the right side, and we get:
y = [B]x/(n - 9)[/B]

x/y = z - 8 for x

x/y = z - 8 for x
Multiply each side by y to isolate x:
y*(x/y) = y(z - 8)
The y's cancel out on the left side, so we have:
x = [B]y(z - 8)[/B]

x/y = z - 8 for x

x/y = z - 8 for x
We start by seeing that x is isolated.
To remove y from the left side, we multiply each side of the equation by y:
xy/y = y(z - 8)
Cancelling y on the left side, we get our answer of:
x = [B]y(z - 8)

You and a friend want to start a business and design t-shirts. You decide to sell your shirts for $1

You and a friend want to start a business and design t-shirts. You decide to sell your shirts for $15 each and you paid $6.50 a piece plus a $50 set-up fee and $25 for shipping. How many shirts do you have to sell to break even? Round to the nearest whole number.
[U]Step 1: Calculate Your Cost Function C(s) where s is the number of t-shirts[/U]
C(s) = Cost per Shirt * (s) Shirts + Set-up Fee + Shipping
C(s) = $6.50s + $50 + $25
C(s) = $6.50s + 75
[U]Step 2: Calculate Your Revenue Function R(s) where s is the number of t-shirts[/U]
R(s) = Price Per Shirt * (s) Shirts
R(s) = $15s
[U]Step 3: Calculate Break-Even Point[/U]
Break Even is where Cost = Revenue. Set C(s) = R(s)
$6.50s + 75 = $15s
[U]Step 4: Subtract 6.5s from each side[/U]

You and your friend are playing a number-guessing game. You ask your friend to think of a positive n

You and your friend are playing a number-guessing game. You ask your friend to think of a positive number, square the number, multiply the result by 2, and then add three. If your friend's final answer is 53, what was the original number chosen?
Let n be our original number.
Square the number means we raise n to the power of 2:
n^2
Multiply the result by 2:
2n^2
And then add three:
2n^2 + 3
If the friend's final answer is 53, this means we set 2n^2 + 3 equal to 53:
2n^2 + 3 = 53
To solve for n, we subtract 3 from each side, to isolate the n term:
2n^2 + 3 - 3 = 53 - 3
Cancel the 3's on the left side, and we get:
2n^2 = 50
Divide each side of the equation by 2:
2n^2/2 = 50/2
Cancel the 2's, we get:
n^2 = 25
Take the square root of 25
n = +-sqrt(25)
n = +-5
We are told the number is positive, so we discard the negative square root and get:
n = [B]5[/B]

[U]Let w be the number of weeks. Set up two equations where s is the starting amount:[/U]
(1) s + 75w =950
(2) s + 50w = 800
[U]Rearrange (1) into (3) to solve for s by subtracting 75w[/U]
(3) s = 950 - 75w
[U]Rearrange (2) into (4) to solve for s by subtracting 50w[/U]
(4) s = 800 - 50w
[U]Set (3) and (4) equal to each other so solve for w[/U]
950 - 75w = 800 - 50w
[U]Add 75w to each side, and subtract 950 from each side:[/U]
25w = 150
[U]Divide each side by w[/U]
[B]w = 6[/B]
Now plug w = 6 into (3)
s = 950 - 75(6)
s = 950 - 450
[B]s = 500[/B]

Your friends in class want you to make a run to the vending machine for the whole group. Everyone pitched in to make a total of $12.50 to buy snacks. The fruit drinks are $1.50 and the chips are $1.00. Your friends want you to buy a total of 10 items. How many drinks and how many chips were you able to purchase?
Let c be the number of chips. Let f be the number of fruit drinks. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]c + f = 10
[*]c + 1.5f = 12.50
[/LIST]
Rearrange equation 1 by subtracting f from both sides:
[LIST=1]
[*]c = 10 - f
[*]c + 1.5f = 12.50

z(1/w - 1/x) = x + y
Divide each side by (1/w - 1/x)
z = x + y/(1/w - 1/x)
To remove reciprocals in the denominator, we rewrite 1/w - 1/x with a common denominator xw
(x - w)/xw
Then multiply x + y by the reciprocal
z = [B](x + y)xw/(x - w)[/B]

z=m-x+y, for x

z=m-x+y, for x
This is a literal equation. Let's add subtract (m + y) from each side:
z - (m + y) = m - x + y - (m + y)
The m + y terms cancel on the right side, so we have:
z - m - y = -x
Multiply each side by -1 to isolate x:
-1(z - m - y) = -(-x)
x = [B]m + y - z[/B]

zy-dm=ky/t for y

zy-dm=ky/t for y
Isolate terms with y to solve this literal equation.
Subtract zy from each side:
zy - dm - zy = ky/t - zy
Cancel the zy terms on the left side, we get:
-dm = ky/t - zy
Factor out y:
y(k/t - z) = -dm
Divide each side by (k/t - z)
y = -dm/(k/t - z)
(k/t - z) can be rewritten as (k - tz)/t
We multiply -dm by the reciprocal of this quotient to get our simplified literal equation:
y = [B]-dmt/(k - tz)[/B]
