 Pythagorean-theorem/316018: find the length of the hypotenuse of the right triangle, side a=25, side b=121 solutions Answer 226062 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-06-20 19:08:23 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! We basically have this triangle set up: To find the unknown length, we need to use the Pythagorean Theorem. Remember, the Pythagorean Theorem is where "a" and "b" are the legs of a triangle and "c" is the hypotenuse. Since the legs are and this means that and Also, since the hypotenuse is , this means that . Start with the Pythagorean theorem. Plug in , , Square to get . Square to get . Combine like terms. Rearrange the equation. Take the square root of both sides. Note: only the positive square root is considered (since a negative length doesn't make sense). ================================================================ Answer: So the solution is which approximates to .
 Graphs/316017: You are selling cups of coffee at a sporting event. Your sales records show that when the coffee is priced at $3 per cup, you sell 650 cups. When the coffee is prices at$2.50, you sell 930 cups. Using that information, write a linear equation for the relationship between price (p) and quantity (q) sold. Your starting point is: q = mx + b, which is the slope intercept form of an equation, and using the two ordered pairs you find m and b. Make sure your answer here is an equation. 1 solutions Answer 226061 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2010-06-20 19:04:28 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Basically, we're looking for the equation that goes through the points and First let's find the slope of the line through the points and Note: is the first point .
