 Length-and-distance/322525: Can anyone help me with this problem? Given 2 similar figures, explain how to tell if there is a size transformation that transforms one of the figures onto the other? Would you use an algorithm to model a change for stretching? Any help would be appreciated!1 solutions Answer 230888 by solver91311(16897)   on 2010-07-14 19:53:41 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! It depends on what you mean by "similar." If you mean similar in the common vernacular, meaning "sorta, kinda the same," then there is no way to tell. On the other hand if you mean similar in the Euclidian Geometry sense, then the figures are similar if and only if there is a size transformation. And the algorithm would be to multiply the measurements of one by the proportion of similar parts of the two figures. John

 Probability-and-statistics/322463: A card is dealt from a deck of 52 playing cards (no jokers). Assuming Ace is high, find the probability of each of the following: a. Above a queen. b. Below a seven c. Both below a queen and above a seven. d. Above a queen or below a seven.1 solutions Answer 230862 by solver91311(16897)   on 2010-07-14 17:20:57 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! The probability of anything is the number of ways that something could happen that you consider to be a success divided by the total number of ways that it could happen. For all parts of this question, there are 52 cards, so there are 52 ways that one card can be drawn from the deck. Hence, 52 is the denominator of the probability fraction for all four parts of this question. For part a, draw one card above a queen. You can't count queens because a queen is not above a queen, it is the same size. Since Ace is high, there are two denominations higher than queen, namely king and ace. A standard deck of cards has 4 of each denomination, so there are 4 kings and 4 aces, making a total of 8 ways to be successful where success means drawing a card above a queen. You should be able to figure the rest of them -- just count the number of cards that fit the given criteria. John

The idea of solving a linear system by elimination is to multiply one or more of the given equations by a constant or constants so that the coefficients on one of the variables are additive inverses in two of the equations. For the example problem, this first step is unnecessary because you already have the coefficients on as additive inverses, namely 1 and -1. Now you need to add the equations, term by term: , , and , hence: Now that you know the value of , substitute it back into either of the original equations: And there you have it. The solution set is the ordered pair John

 Circles/322450: What is the diameter of a cirlce that has a 3" square inside?1 solutions Answer 230835 by solver91311(16897)   on 2010-07-14 14:54:55 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! If the circle is circumscribed on the square, meaning that the vertices of the square all lie on the circle, then the diameter of the circle is equal to the length of the diagonal of the square. Use Pythagoras on an isosceles right triangle with legs of 3 inches. If the square is simply inside of the circle such that one or more of the square's vertices do not lie on the circle, then all you can say is that the diameter of the circle is greater than the diagonal of the square.

The question is the length of a rectangle is 8 divided by x-9 while it width is 5 divided by x. Find the perimeter. I have tried everything and can't find the LCD,1 solutions Answer 230811 by solver91311(16897)   on 2010-07-14 12:58:36 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! First simplify things by multiplying each of the length and width expressions by 2 and then you only have to add two fractions. Your denominators are coprime, which is to say that they have no factors in common, therefore the LCD is simply the product of the two denominators, to wit . (It may be necessary, or simply aesthetic to multiply this out later on, but for now is a perfectly good representation of your LCD. Multiply the entire sum by 1 in the form of the LCD divided by the LCD: Which can also be expressed as: If you think that is prettier. John

 Travel_Word_Problems/322397: To deliver a package, a messenger must travel at a speed of 60 miles per hour on land and then use a motorboat whose speed is 20 miles per hour in still water. The messenger goes by land to a dock and then travels on a river against a current of 4 miles per hour. He reaches his destination in 4.5 hours and then returns to the starting point in 3.5 hours. How far did the messenger travel by land and how far by water?1 solutions Answer 230795 by solver91311(16897)   on 2010-07-14 12:06:15 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Everything in this problem is based on the distance equals rate times time formula. Let represent the distance traveled on land. Let represent the distance traveled on the water. Let represent the elapsed time traveling on land. We know the rate of speed on land because that is given as 60 mph. The rate of speed for the outbound trip on water is the rate in still water MINUS the rate of the current (because he was traveling AGAINST the current), so 20 mph minus 4 mph is 16 mph. Likewise, the rate of speed for the return trip on water is 24 mph. If the total outbound trip took 4.5 hours and the land part of the trip took hours, then the water part of the outbound trip must have taken hours. Similarly, the water part of the return trip must have taken hours. Let's put some of this together. We can describe the outbound trip over water by the relationship: And we can describe the return trip over water as: Having two things both equal to , we can set them equal to each other: From which we can solve for hours, the travel time on land. (Verification of this result is left as an exercise for the student). Then, knowing that , we can say that Further, says that the travel time for the outbound trip on water is , hence the distance over water for the outbound trip is miles. As a check, the distance over water for the return trip better be the same as for the outbound trip: And our answer checks. John
