 decimal-numbers/286559: Marie has three pieces of ribbon she wants to use to decorate a gift box.She measured the three pieces with a ruler and got 32.3cm, 41.19cm, and 57.8cm.She needs 200cm of ribbon for the box.How much is Marie over or under what she needs? Show work,1 solutions Answer 207865 by nyc_function(2733)   on 2010-03-29 17:19:18 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let A = piece 1 is 32.3cm Let B = piece 2 is 41.19cm Let C = piece 3 is 57.8cm The total needed is 200cm for the box. If we add A + B + C, the total ribbons is 131.29cm. How much is Marie over or under what she needs? Marie is definitely under in terms of cm. By how much is she under? Subtract 131.29cm from 200cm and you shall have the answer. Can you do it now?
 Linear-systems/286578: 2x+3y=13 y=x+1 in graphing method1 solutions Answer 207860 by nyc_function(2733)   on 2010-03-29 17:10:38 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Graph both equations.

 Circles/286572: a cake has three circular tires; each is 8 cm high. the tiers have diameters 60 cm, 48 cm, 36 cm. what is the surface area to be covered by frosting? there is no frosting between layers1 solutions Answer 207858 by nyc_function(2733)   on 2010-03-29 17:09:02 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The surface area of a circle is given by A = 4pi(r^2), where pi = 3.14. The cake with diameter 60cm has a radius of 30cm. The cake with diameter 48cm has a radius of 24cm. The cake with diameter 36cm has a radius of 18cm. What do you think can be done with this information to find the total surface area? You need to use the formula above 3 times (one for each cake tire). Total frosting on cake = 4(3.14)(30cm)^2 + 4(3.14)(24cm)^2 + 4(3.14)(18cm)^2 You can take it from here.
 Equations/286541: Given F(X)=x-3 and g(X)= X^2 over x-3 find g(f(x))1 solutions Answer 207855 by nyc_function(2733)   on 2010-03-29 16:58:20 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!g(f(x)) = plug value of f(x) into the value of g(x) and simplify. We know the value of f(x) is x - 3. Everywhere you see x for the function g(x), replace it with x - 3 and simplify. g(x - 3) = (x - 3)^2/(x - 3) - 3 g(x - 3) = (x - 3)(x - 3)/(x - 6) So, g(f(x)) = (x - 3)(x - 3)/(x - 6)

 Angles/285701: Find the measures of a positive angle and a negative angle that are coterminal with each given angle theta = -316 degrees1 solutions Answer 207141 by nyc_function(2733)   on 2010-03-26 20:19:56 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The angles must have the same terminal side. We use theta + 360, where theta is the given angle. -316 + 360 = 44....This is one of the angles. To find a negative coterminal angle, add -316 to -360 = -676. In other words, when you need to find negative coterminal angles, use theta + (-360).

 Linear-equations/285679: Write an equation of the line containing the given point and perpendicular to the given line. (8,-6); 3x+5y=8. The equation of the line is y=1 solutions Answer 207119 by nyc_function(2733)   on 2010-03-26 19:53:04 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The line we are looking for is perpendicular to the given equation, which means that its slope is the negative reciprocal of the slope of the given equation. 3x + 5y = 8 5y = -3x + 8 y = (-3/5)(x) + 8 The negative reciprocal of (-3/5) is (5/3) because (-3/5) times (5/3) = -1. We now plug (5/3) and your point (8, -6) into the point-slope formula and solve for y. y - (-6) = (5/3)(x - 8) y + 6 = (5/3)(x) - 40/3 y = (5/3)(x) - 40/3 - 6 y = (5/3)(x) - 22/3
