 Percentage-and-ratio-word-problems/295711: A shopkeeper gives two successive discounts of 8% and 12%. What is overall discount? plz hlp me ans is 33.33% 1 solutions Answer 213137 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2010-04-23 11:48:34 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let 'x' be the original price. If you apply an 8% discount, you're basically subtracting 8% of the original price from the original price. In other words, you're doing So after an 8% discount, the new price is dollars. Now apply the 12% discount using similar logic to get So after applying the 8% discount, then the 12% discount, the final sale price is . Subtract the coefficient from 1 to get and then multiply that result by 100 to get 19.04% So the overall discount is 19.04% --------------------------------------------- Example: Say an item originally costs \$100. Apply the 8% discount to get (note: think of it as subtracting \$8, 8% of \$100, from \$100). So after the first discount, the sale price is \$92. Now apply the 12% discount to the new price of \$92 to get . This means that after the two discounts, the final price is \$80.96 Instead of taking two steps to find the final discount, we can take a shortcut and simply apply the overall discount of 19.04% (we should get the same answer if we did things right). So applying the discount of 19.04% to the original price of \$100 gets us which is what got earlier. So this example helps support our answer. Try other values to confirm for yourself that this is the right discount. Try to incorporate real world values (ie prices you might see in the grocery store) to help you see that it works. As you can see, it's very useful to be able to combine multiple discounts into one to save time and avoid errors.
 Geometry_proofs/295709: what is used to support the steps of a geometric proof? evidence based on observation or experiment? measurement and observation of many cases? postulates, definitions, given statements, and proven theorems? or steps in a geometric proff do not require support?1 solutions Answer 213133 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2010-04-23 11:34:34 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Well first off, geometric proofs need support, so we can quickly cross off the last choice. If they didn't need support, then we could claim anything (whether it's true or not). For the first choice, geometry doesn't really deal with experiments. So we can ignore this choice. For the second, measurement is used in geometry, but not necessarily in proofs. So we can ignore this one as well. It turns out that the answer is the third choice as geometry is essentially built on other proven theorems, axioms, and definitions.
 Triangles/295703: the area of a triangle, altitude 5' base =26'1 solutions Answer 213132 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2010-04-23 11:15:57 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Area of triangle = (Base*Height)/2 = (26*5)/2 = 130/2 = 65 So the area of the triangle is 65 square feet.

 Miscellaneous_Word_Problems/295700: A company produced 2,265,400 tires in one year and made a profit of 15,720,000. What was the profit of each tire? 1 solutions Answer 213128 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2010-04-23 11:07:54 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Profit of 1 single tire = Total Profit/Number of tires = 15,720,000/2,265,400 = 6.93917189 So the profit per tire is about \$6.94 (to the nearest penny)
 Numeric_Fractions/295603: If 3/4 of a class is absent and 2/3 of those present leave the room. What fraction of the original class remains in the room?1 solutions Answer 213019 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2010-04-23 01:36:45 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!"If 3/4 of a class is absent", then of the class is present. Now since "2/3 of those present leave the room", this means that 1/3 of those present remain in the room. So simply multiply by to get the number of the people who remain the room. So So of the original class remains in the room. ----------------------------------------------------------- Here's a concrete example: Say there are 600 kids. Now if "If 3/4 of a class is absent", then kids are absent and are present (in the beginning) Now because "2/3 of those present leave the room", we know that kids leave the room. Because 150 kids showed up originally, this means that kids remain. Now just compute the ratio of the remaining 50 students to the total of 600 to get which is the fraction we originally found. So this example supports our answer.
 Numeric_Fractions/295607: 17 -8 1/2 = 1 solutions Answer 213018 by jim_thompson5910(28717)   on 2010-04-23 01:29:07 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Note: We can write 17 as since Using the note above, we can go from ``` 17 - 8 1/2 --------- ``` to ``` 16 2/2 - 8 1/2 --------- ``` Now just subtract the common parts. So and meaning that ``` 16 2/2 - 8 1/2 --------- 8 1/2 ``` So this also means that ``` 17 - 8 1/2 --------- 8 1/2 ```

Solved by pluggable solver: Factoring using the AC method (Factor by Grouping)
In order to factor , first multiply the leading coefficient 1 and the last term 9 to get 9. Now we need to ask ourselves: What two numbers multiply to 9 and add to -6? Lets find out by listing all of the possible factors of 9

Factors:

1,3,9,

-1,-3,-9, List the negative factors as well. This will allow us to find all possible combinations

These factors pair up to multiply to 9.

1*9=9

3*3=9

(-1)*(-9)=9

(-3)*(-3)=9

note: remember two negative numbers multiplied together make a positive number

Now which of these pairs add to -6? Lets make a table of all of the pairs of factors we multiplied and see which two numbers add to -6

||||
 First Number | Second Number | Sum 1 | 9 | 1+9=10 3 | 3 | 3+3=6 -1 | -9 | -1+(-9)=-10 -3 | -3 | -3+(-3)=-6

We can see from the table that -3 and -3 add to -6. So the two numbers that multiply to 9 and add to -6 are: -3 and -3

breaks down to this (just replace with the two numbers that multiply to 9 and add to -6, which are: -3 and -3)

Replace with

Group the first two terms together and the last two terms together like this:

Factor a 1x out of the first group and factor a -3 out of the second group.

Now since we have a common term we can combine the two terms.

Combine like terms.
==============================================================================

which can also be written as since the factors repeat themselves

Notice how foils back to our original problem . This verifies our answer.

 Solved by pluggable solver: Finding the Equation of a Line First lets find the slope through the points (,) and (,) Start with the slope formula (note: (,) is the first point (,) and (,) is the second point (,)) Plug in ,,, (these are the coordinates of given points) Subtract the terms in the numerator to get . Subtract the terms in the denominator to get So the slope is ------------------------------------------------ Now let's use the point-slope formula to find the equation of the line: ------Point-Slope Formula------ where is the slope, and (,) is one of the given points So lets use the Point-Slope Formula to find the equation of the line Plug in , , and (these values are given) Rewrite as Distribute Multiply and to get . Now reduce to get Subtract from both sides to isolate y Combine like terms and to get (note: if you need help with combining fractions, check out this solver) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Answer: So the equation of the line which goes through the points (,) and (,) is: The equation is now in form (which is slope-intercept form) where the slope is and the y-intercept is Notice if we graph the equation and plot the points (,) and (,), we get this: (note: if you need help with graphing, check out this solver) Graph of through the points (,) and (,) Notice how the two points lie on the line. This graphically verifies our answer.
