(: 1 solutions Answer 372986 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 17:10:31 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If the side length of an equilateral triangle is x units, then the height/altitude is (x/2)*sqrt(3) units. So the area is then A = (bh)/2 = (x*(x/2)*sqrt(3))/2 = ((x^2)/4)*sqrt(3) So in short, the area of the equilateral triangle with side length 'x' is ((x^2)/4)*sqrt(3) square units. So the triangle with sides 5 ft long has an area of ((5^2)/4)*sqrt(3) = (25/4)*sqrt(3) and the triangle with sides 7 feet long has an area of ((7^2)/4)*sqrt(3) = (49/4)*sqrt(3) Divide the two to get ( (25/4)*sqrt(3) )/( (49/4)*sqrt(3) ) = (25/4)(4/49) = 25/49 So the ratio between the two areas is 25:49

Trigonometry-basics/584928: 4xsquared+36x+35 i need two numbers that multiply to 56 but add to 36 (x+?)(x+?)
1 solutions

Answer 372984 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 17:03:40 (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!

Looking at the expression , we can see that the first coefficient is , the second coefficient is , and the last term is .

Now multiply the first coefficient by the last term to get .

Now the question is: what two whole numbers multiply to (the previous product) and add to the second coefficient ?

To find these two numbers, we need to list all of the factors of (the previous product).

Factors of :
1,2,4,5,7,10,14,20,28,35,70,140
-1,-2,-4,-5,-7,-10,-14,-20,-28,-35,-70,-140

Note: list the negative of each factor. This will allow us to find all possible combinations.

These factors pair up and multiply to .
1*140 = 140
2*70 = 140
4*35 = 140
5*28 = 140
7*20 = 140
10*14 = 140
(-1)*(-140) = 140
(-2)*(-70) = 140
(-4)*(-35) = 140
(-5)*(-28) = 140
(-7)*(-20) = 140
(-10)*(-14) = 140

Now let's add up each pair of factors to see if one pair adds to the middle coefficient :

First NumberSecond NumberSum
11401+140=141
2702+70=72
4354+35=39
5285+28=33
7207+20=27
101410+14=24
-1-140-1+(-140)=-141
-2-70-2+(-70)=-72
-4-35-4+(-35)=-39
-5-28-5+(-28)=-33
-7-20-7+(-20)=-27
-10-14-10+(-14)=-24

From the table, we can see that there are no pairs of numbers which add to . So cannot be factored.

===============================================================

So doesn't factor at all (over the rational numbers).

So is prime.

 Travel_Word_Problems/584927: While driving at 90km/hr, how far in meters can you travel in 1.0 seconds?1 solutions Answer 372981 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 16:33:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!d = rt d = 90*(1/3600) ... Note: 1 second = 1/(60*60) = 1/3600 hours d = 90/3600 d = 1/40 d = 0.025 Now convert to meters: 0.025*1000 = 25 So the answer is 25 meters.
 Travel_Word_Problems/584926: 3. Is the time it takes to drive to the ski resort a function of the speed you drive? Explain.1 solutions Answer 372979 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 16:30:46 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You can start with the formula d = rt and solve for t to get t = d/r If the distance is held constant and fixed, then the time will change as the speed changes. So the answer is yes.
 Probability-and-statistics/584924: If one vase contains 3 red, 4 pink and 5 white roses and another vase has 2 red, 2 pink and 2 white roses, what is probability that one rose chosen from each vase will be the same color? Please explain how to come to the answer. Thank you.1 solutions Answer 372977 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 16:16:17 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!There are 3 possible scenarios: Scenario 1) Both roses are red P(Both Red) = P(Red)*P(Red) = (3/12)*(2/6) = 6/72 = 1/12 ------------------------------------------------------- Scenario 2) Both roses are pink P(Both Pink) = P(Pink)*P(Pink) = (4/12)*(2/6) = 8/72 = 1/9 ------------------------------------------------------- Scenario 2) Both roses are white P(Both White) = P(White)*P(White) = (5/12)*(2/6) = 10/72 = 5/36 Now add up all the probabilities: 1/12 + 1/9 + 5/36 = 3/36 + 4/36 + 5/36 = (3+4+5)/36 = 12/36 = 1/3 So the probability that one rose chosen from each vase will be the same color is 1/3

 Probability-and-statistics/584876: Find the mean, variance,and binomial distribution with the given values of n and p. n=122,p=0.24 The mean is: _____ (round to the nearest tenth as needed) The variance is:_____(round to the nearest tenth as needed) The standard divination is: _____(round to the nearest tenth as needed)1 solutions Answer 372932 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 14:04:59 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Mean: mu = np = 122*0.24 = 29.28 So the mean is 29.3 (rounded to the nearest tenth) ------------------------------------------------------- Variance: sigma^2 = np(1-p) = 122*0.24(1-0.24) = 22.2528 So the variance is 22.3 (rounded to the nearest tenth) ------------------------------------------------------- Standard Deviation: sigma = sqrt(np(1-p)) = sqrt(122*0.24(1-0.24)) = 4.717287 So the standard deviation is 4.7 (rounded to the nearest tenth)
 Probability-and-statistics/584875: Use the confidence interval to find the margin of error and the sample mean: (0.256,0.380) a.The margin of error is: _____ b.The sample mea is: _____1 solutions Answer 372931 by jim_thompson5910(28476)   on 2012-03-09 14:02:13 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a) The margin of error is equal to the radius of the confidence interval or half the width of the confidence interval. Margin of Error: ME = (b-a)/2, where the confidence interval is (a,b) ME = (0.380-0.256)/2 ME = 0.062 So the margin of error is 0.062 ------------------------------------------------------- b) The sample mean is the center of the confidence interval. Note: this is assuming that this is a confidence interval for the true population mean. Sample Mean: xbar = (a+b)/2, for some confidence interval (a,b) xbar = (0.256 + 0.380)/2 xbar = 0.318 So the sample mean is 0.318
