## One month Henry rented 3 movies and 8 video games for a total of \$58 . The next month he rented 5 movies and 2 video games for a total of \$23 . Find the rental cost for each movie and each video game. Rental cost for eachmovie:\$___ Rental costfor each video game:\$____

Henry rented 3 movies and 8 video games for a total of \$58
3m + 8v= \$58
The next month he rented 5 movies and 2 video games for a total of \$23.
5m + 2v = \$23.

Grab an equation and solve it for one of the variables:
3m + 8v= \$58
3m=58-8v
m=19.333-2.6666v

Then sub that result in for the variable in the other equation:
5(19.333-2.666666v )+ 2v = \$23.
96.666 – 13.333v + 2v = \$23.
96.666 – 11.333v = \$23.
-11.333v = \$23-96.666
-11.333v = -73.666
v=6.50

Now sub back in v in one of the equations:
5m + 2v = \$23.
5m + 2(6.50) = \$23.
5m+13 = 23
5m=10
m=2

The video games cost \$6.50 and the Movies cost \$2.00.

3(\$2.00) + 8(\$6.50) = \$58
5(\$2.00) + 2(\$6.50) = \$23.

## Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Nonsense,” laughed Rainsford. “This hot weather is making you soft, Whitney. Be a realist. The world is made up of two classes—the hunters and the huntees. Luckily, you and I are the hunters. Do you think we’ve passed that island yet?” Read the excerpt of Zaroff speaking from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure. I am strong. Why should I not use my gift? If I wish to hunt, why should I not? I hunt the sc*m of the earth—sailors from tr*mp ships—lascars, blacks, Chinese, whites, mongrels—a thoroughbred horse or hound is worth more than a score of them.” How do these excerpts show the difference between Rainsford and Zaroff? a) Rainsford believes that animals are inferior to humans and therefore deserve to be hunted, while Zaroff feels this way about other humans. b) Rainsford has a deep feelings and sympathy for the prey he hunts, while Zaroff has no feelings or sympathy for his prey at all. c) Rainsford believes that it is acceptable to hunt all things as long as they are weaker, while Zaroff hunts only human beings. d) Rainsford hunts for pure amusement, while Zaroff believes he is performing a service by hunting the “sc*m of the earth.”

## A person in a casino decides to play blackjack until he loses a game, but he will not play more than 3 games. let l denote a loss and w denote a win. what is the sample space for this random experiment

The age of a rock is determined by the function:

…..[1]

where,

A(t) be the age of rock after t years

be the initial value of Isotope Q.

t be the number of years.

As per the statement:

A sample originally has 80 grams of Isotope Q, decays, and now has 20 grams of the isotope.

gram and A(t) = 20 grams

Substitute in [1] we have;

Divide both sides by 80 we have;

Taking ln with base e both sides we have;

Divide both sides by 0.000002 we have;

693147.18056  = t

or

t = 693147.18056  years

Therefore, the current age of the sample, in years to the nearest thousand years is, 6,93,147 year

## Jim enjoys playing basketball. he figures that he makes about 50% of the field goals he attempts during a game. in this situation, we’ll say success occurs when jim makes an attempted field goal. what is the value of p?

The following equation of parabola is given:

p(x)= – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

where p(x) = y

This is a standard form of the parabola. We need to
convert this into vertex form of equation. The equation must be in the form:

y – k = a (x – h)^2

Where h and k are the vertex of the parabola. Therefore,

y = – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495)

Completing the square:

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + _) – (-5)* _

Where the value in the blank _ is = -b/2

Since b = -48        therefore,

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + 81) + 405

y – 405 = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 576)

y – 405 = -5 (x – 24)^2

Therefore the vertex is at points (24, 405).

The company should make 24 tables per day to attain maximum
profit.

## You are in the hot seat on the who wants to be a millionaire? tv game show. the question is “who was the fourth president of the united states?” what form of memory are you using to answer this general knowledge question?

Rochelle’s erratic memory of her mediocre performance is most likely due to HINDSIGHT BIAS (Answer).

Hindsight bias refers to “an eye for predicting some events in life before they have even happened.” It is that leaning many people have to see events as more predictable than they are.

It is also common to listen to people saying that they knew or had the feeling about the outcome of an event. It is the same that happened with Rochelle, once she realized her real grades, she remembered how poorly she did in college; it says: ” She then started telling everyone she remembers being a pretty poor student”.

## The area of a square game board is 144 sq.in. what’s the length of the sides of the board

Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.

Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.

According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by

Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by

Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so

d = 10.

Therefore,

Thus, the correct statement is

10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.

Option (C) is correct.

## Read this paragraph from The Dark Game. It may seem surprising that no Confederate sympathizers took action against Van Lew, given her strong and public views on secession and slavery. Surely there were suspicions, especially among her upper-crust neighbors, but the matter never went beyond those suspicions. Historians have suggested that the secessionists were victims of their own cultural bias, believing that no aristocratic person, and certainly not a lady, would ever consider taking part in anything as impolite as spying. A true lady managed her servants, prepared parties and gatherings, and blindly supported her husband. Such attitudes worked in Van Lew’s favor, diverting suspicion from her. What central idea is implied in this paragraph? A-Elizabeth Van Lew did not follow the rules society set forth for ladies of her time and social class. B-Elizabeth Van Lew was a successful spy because society did not expect a lady to serve in that role. C-Elizabeth Van Lew was able to disguise her spying activities because she kept her views about the war to herself. D-Elizabeth Van Lew created for herself an untrue but believable cover story: she was a wealthy lady living in a fancy neighborhood.

## In a casino, the chance of winning a certain game is 14.5%. If you play the game 20 times, what’s your best estimate for the number of times you would win? Round off your answer to the nearest whole number.

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

= 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

## James is hosting a game show where a contestant has to draw a ball that is one of four colors from a pot. Each day, a ball of a particular color will win. To mix up the possibilities, James decides to keep unequal number of balls for each color. There will be as many black balls as red balls. Green balls and red balls should add up to 10. There should be 10 more blue balls than red balls. A math expert tells James that he should have at least 2,304 possible combinations to provide sufficient difficulty. Identify the values for the number of red balls the pot should have to ensure that James’ condition is met.

Here,

s represents the cost of soup and c represents the number of can,

Also, s varies directly with c,

⇒ s ∝ c

⇒ s = kc —–(1)

Where, k is the proportionality constant,

Given, when c = 4, s = 3,

From equation (1),

Again from equation (1),

Let x-axis represents the number of can and y-axis represents the cost of soup,

For graphing :

is a straight line

Where, s ≥ 0 and c ≥ 0 ( cost and number of cans can not be negative )

When, c = 0, s = 0,

When c = 4,

When c = 8,

When c = 16,

Thus, the line  is passing from the points (0,0), (4,3), (8,6) and (16,12).

## For the baseball game the coach bought four cases of water for \$64 what was the unit rate in cost per case

The volume of a rubber ball is 20.57 cm³ .

The cost of  producing one ball is \$ 0.093 .

The profit will it make on each ball is \$ 0.41 .

Step-by-step explanation:

Formula

Where r is the radius of the sphere .

First part

As given

A toy company produces rubber balls that have a radius of 1.7 cm.

r = 1.7 cm

Put all the values in the formula

Volume of a rubber ball = 20.57 cm³ (Approx)

Therefore the volume of a rubber ball is 20.57 cm³ .

Second part

As given

If the price of the rubber needed to produce a ball is \$0.0045/cm³.

Thus

Total cost of producing a rubber ball =  Volume of a rubber ball × Price of the rubber needed to produce a ball .

Put all the values in the above

Total cost of producing a rubber ball = 20.57 × 0.0045

= \$ 0.093 (Approx)

Therefore the cost of  producing one ball is \$ 0.093 .

Third part

If the company sells a ball for \$0.50 .

i.e

Selling price of a ball = \$0.50

The cost of  producing one ball is \$ 0.093 .

i.e

Cost price of a ball = \$0.093

Profit = Selling price – Cost price

Put all the values in the above

Profit = \$ 0.50 – \$ 0.093

= \$ 0.41 (Approx)

Therefore the profit will it make on each ball is \$ 0.41 .
