Question 994704: I just need my work checked please. Also sorry if this is the wrong place for the problem.
Bruce has a bottle that contains 60% of lemon juice and the rest water. The bottle has 1 liter of water.
Part A: Write an equation in one variable that can be used to find the total number of liters of lemon juice and water in the bottle. Define the variable used in the equation.
Part B: How many liters of lemon juice are present in the bottle? Show your work.
Here's my work:
0.60*1/0.40 = x
0.60/0.40 = x
1.5 = x

Bruce has a bottle that contains 60% of lemon juice and the rest water. The bottle has 1 liter of water.
Part A: Write an equation in one variable that can be used to find the total number of liters of lemon juice and water in the bottle. Define the variable used in the equation.
Part B: How many liters of lemon juice are present in the bottle? Show your work.
Here's my work:
0.60*1/0.40 = x
0.60/0.40 = x
1.5 = x
The equation you set up and the amount you got are for the amount of lemon juice in the bottle, but you need an equation for the total amount of lemon juice and water.
This is done as follows:
40% or .4 represents the amount of water in the bottle. Since that amount is 1 L, and with amount of lemon juice and water being T, we get:
 Crossmultiplying
You actually have the answer to Part B, as there is indeed 1.5 L of lemon juice in the bottle

Question 994517: The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is P=2l,+ 2w, where l is the length and w is the width. A rectangle has a perimeter of 24 inches. Find its dimensions of it length is 3 inches greater than its width.

You can put this solution on YOUR website! .
W=width; L=length=W+3in
.
P=2L+2W
P=2(L+W)
24in=2(L+W)
12in=L+W
12in=(W+3in)+W
12in=2W+3in
9in=2W
4.5in=W
ANSWER 1: The width is 4.5 inches.
.
L=W+3in=4.5in+3in=7.5in
ANSWER 2: The length is 7.5 inches.
.
CHECK:
P=2L+2W
24in=2(7.5in)+2(4.5in)
24in=15in+9in
24in=24in

Question 993888: Hi,
I don't know if this is the right category, but while gkimming through a question paper i found one question:
a+b+c=10, find the maximum value possible for (a*b*c)+(a*b)+(b*c)+(a*c).
Please help me solve this, as this is not just one of it's type in the question paper, there are 5 or 6 such ones.
Answer by Alan3354(47455) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! a+b+c=10, find the maximum value possible for (a*b*c)+(a*b)+(b*c)+(a*c).
==================
Using Excel, I confirmed my suspicion that the max is at a = b = c
Max = 69967/999
= 31*61/27
=====================
27 is obviously 3*3*3, but I don't know the significance of 31 or 61.
I don't yet have a proof, either.

You can put this solution on YOUR website! .
What are the subsets for the following questions, 12/18, 5, pi, square root of 2, square root of 13,  4/3, and square root of 61.

1. = . Do you know it?
2. Your set is { , 5, , , , , }.
It has 7 elements, in total.
The number of all subsets is = 128.
It is toooooo many to list them here.
You can do it yourself, or, it is better to say, you can understand how to do it, if you recall what a subset is.
This question is not to ask others.
It is for you to think about.

Question 991733: Find the probablity of not rolling multiples of 3 on pair of dice
Answer by Edwin McCravy(13211) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Here are all 36 ways a pair of dice can fall:
(1,1) (1,2) (1,3) (1,4) (1,5) (1,6)
(2,1) (2,2) (2,3) (2,4) (2,5) (2,6)
(3,1) (3,2) (3,3) (3,4) (3,5) (3,6)
(4,1) (4,2) (4,3) (4,4) (4,5) (4,6)
(5,1) (5,2) (5,3) (5,4) (5,5) (5,6)
(6,1) (6,2) (6,3) (6,4) (6,5) (6,6)
Add each pair and we get these numbers:
2 3 4 5 6 7
3 4 5 6 7 8
4 5 6 7 8 9
5 6 7 8 9 10
6 7 8 9 10 11
7 8 9 10 11 12
The multiples of 3 are 3,6,9, and 12.
We take those out, and we have:
2 4 5 7
4 5 7 8
4 5 7 8
5 7 8 10
7 8 10 11
7 8 10 11
Count those. There are 24 of them.
So the probability is 24 out of 36.
Or 24/36 which reduces to 2/3.

Question 991505: Give an example for non zero real numbers is not closed under subtraction r
Answer by MathLover1(11324) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! by definition, if the operation produces even one element outside of the set, the operation is closed
set of natural numbers is closed under subtraction
example: let and , then => is element of
is subset of the set of real numbers
note:
Real Numbers include:
Whole Numbers (like , , , , , etc)
Rational Numbers (like , , ..., , etc )
Irrational Numbers (like , sqrt(3), etc )
One subset of Real Numbers is counting (or natural) numbers. This subset includes all the numbers we count with starting with "" to infinity. The subset would look like this:
{ , ,, , ...}
Another subset is whole numbers. This subset is exactly like the subset of counting numbers, with the addition of one extra number. This extra number is "". The subset would look like this:
{ , , ,, , ...}
so, your answer is set or you can choose set of whole numbers

Question 990665: Hi,
I'm having trouble understanding this particular question about sets. Was wondering if someone could explain to me what it means.
{xx is represented by a digit in the decimal expansion of 178/185}
I don't know what is being asked.
Thanks
Answer by ikleyn(988) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! .
Hello,
do not be scared ! This phrase
{xx is represented by a digit in the decimal expansion of 178/185} "
means
"the set of those digits that participate in the decimal expansion of ".
The number is rational, SO its decimal expansion is either finite or periodic decimal fraction. Are you familiar with it?
Next, I performed long division of 178 by 185 for you.
It is the decimal fraction 0.9(621).
The three digits in parentheses are periodic part of the decimal expansion.
So, the digits that participate in this decimal expansion of the number are 1, 2 6 and 9.
Therefore, our set is the set consisting of four digits 1, 2 6 and 9.
Thus
{xx is represented by a digit in the decimal expansion of 178/185} = {1, 2, 6, 9}.
THAT IS ALL.

Question 989840: If the price of a cell phone, 10 years ago, was 4 times (300%) higher
than it is now, can we say that the same cell phone is 300% cheaper
now?
Answer by Alan3354(47455) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! If the price of a cell phone, 10 years ago, was 4 times (300%) higher
than it is now, can we say that the same cell phone is 300% cheaper
now?

4 times higher is 400% higher, not 300%.
1 time higher is a 100% increase
2 times higher is a 200% increase
3 times higher is a 300% increase
etc

Nothing can be 300% cheaper. If it's 100% cheaper, the price is zero (0).
