Li designed a survey to determine how comfortable students at her middle school are with fractions. There are 600 students in her middle school. The students are equally distributed among grade levels. She selected a sample of 28 students in her first-period class. Which best explains Li’s sample?

[ad_1]

The correct answer to this is:

Nonrandom and biased

 

The method of Li’s sampling has a
tendency that some elements or portion in the population has no chance of
selection. Further, it was not stated which portion of the population she
obtained the sample thus we cannot accurately determine the probability of
selection. This kind of sampling results in a bias. A biased sampling is a type
of nonrandom sampling.

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.

Which correlation should be used to measure the relationship between gender and grade point average for a group of college students?? a. ?point-biserial correlation b. ?pearson correlation c. ?phi-coefficient d. ?spearman correlation?

[ad_1]

Answer:

                The point that lie on the line is:

                        B.  (1,1)

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given that a line passes through the point (0,-1) and has a slope of 2.

We know that the equation of a line passing through (a,b) and having slope m is given by:

           y-b=m(x-a)

Here we have:  (a,b)=(0,-1) and m=2

This means that the equation of line is:

y-(-1)=2(x-0)\\y+1=2x\\y=2x-1

Now we will check which option is true.

A)

                (2,1)

when x=2

we have:

y=2times 2-1\\\y=4-1\\\y=3neq 1

Hence, option: A is incorrect.

B)

                     (1,1)

when x=1

we have:

y=2times 1-1\\\y=2-1\\\y=1

                Hence, option: B is correct.

C)

                      (0,1)

when x=0

we have:

y=2times 0-1\\\y=0-1\\\y=-1neq 1

Hence, option: C is incorrect.

[ad_1]

Answer:

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.

The basis to respond this question are:

1) Perpedicular lines form a 90° angle between them.

2) The product of the slopes of two any perpendicular lines is – 1.

So, from that basic knowledge you can analyze each option:

a.Lines s and t have slopes that are opposite reciprocals.

TRUE. Tha comes the number 2 basic condition for the perpendicular lines.

slope_1 * slope_2 = – 1 => slope_1 = – 1 / slope_2, which is what opposite reciprocals means.

b.Lines s and t have the same slope.

FALSE. We have already stated the the slopes are opposite reciprocals.

c.The product of the slopes of s and t is equal to -1

TRUE: that is one of the basic statements that you need to know and handle.

d.The lines have the same steepness.

FALSE: the slope is a measure of steepness, so they have different steepness.

e.The lines have different y intercepts.

FALSE: the y intercepts may be equal or different. For example y = x + 2 and y = -x + 2 are perpendicular and both have the same y intercept, 2.

f.The lines never intersect.

FALSE: perpendicular lines always intersept (in a 90° angle).

g.The intersection of s and t forms right angle.

TRUE: right angle = 90°.

h.If the slope of s is 6, the slope of t is -6

FALSE. – 6 is not the opposite reciprocal of 6. The opposite reciprocal of 6 is – 1/6.

So, the right choices are a, c and g.

Stock A:

Zachary bought 40 shares of stock A at $80 a share. So he paid 40*80 = 3200 dollars for the shares of stock A.

He then sells stock A at $83 a share, so 83*40 = 3320 is the amount he gets back. The net result is 3320-3200 = 120. Divide this over the initial cost to get 120/3200 = 0.0375

So the rate of return (ROR) for stock A is 3.75%

—————————————

Stock B:

total cost = (number of shares of stock B)*(cost per share of stock B)
total cost = 80*160
total cost = 12800

Then he sells stock B at $166 a share

80*166 = 13280

He nets 13280 – 12800 = 480 dollars from stock B

The ROR for stock B is 480/12800 = 0.0375 = 3.75%

So far, we see that the ROR for both stocks (A and B) are the same at 3.75%

—————————————

Bond:

par value = $1000
coupon = (0.0525)*(1000) = $52.50

ROR = (coupon)/(price) = 52.50/775 = 0.0677 = 6.77%

—————————————

In summary, we have

ROR for stock A = 3.75%
ROR for stock B = 3.75%
ROR for bond = 6.77%

Stock A and B have a tie for the lowest ROR

so that’s why the answer is choice 1) Stock A and Stock B

In a residential solar thermal system, called the Solar Heating System, the solar panels are of the Solar Thermal Collector type, which have the function of capturing the thermal energy of the solar radiation and transferring it to the water, heating it.
This water will be stored in a thermal reservoir, which will maintain its temperature until the moment of use.
The size of the reservoir and the area of solar thermal collectors (solar heating plates) required for the solar heating system vary according to the amount of hot water used in the residence.
This is simple to calculate after an interview with the residents, where the consumption profile will be studied according to the habits of bathing, washing utensils, clothes, etc.

In a residential solar photovoltaic generator system the solar panels are of the photovoltaic module type, consisting of photovoltaic solar cells that transform solar radiation into direct current electric energy.
For the operation of an on-grid photovoltaic solar system (connected to the grid) it is necessary to use a grid-tie inverter, which converts the energy generated into continuous currents by the photovoltaic solar panels into current electric energy Alternating.
The grid-tie inverter is then connected to the general picture of the residence, where it is in charge of mixing the solar energy (already in alternating current) with the power of the public network, allowing to use it in any apparatus or electrical equipment.

Kate took a test and she got a grade between 80% and 95%, inclusive. What is the greatest percent error she could have?

[ad_1]

Answer:

No, the events “brown hair” and “brown eyes” are not  independent.

Step-by-step explanation:

The table that represents the  hair and eye colors of thirty students of the fifth grade are given in table as:

                         Brown hair          Blonde hair              Total

Green eyes           9                       6                               15

Brown eyes          10                       5                              15

Total                     19                        11                             30

No, the events  “brown hair” and “brown eyes” are not independent.

Since, two events A and B are said to be independent if:

P(A∩B)=P(A)×P(B)

where P denotes the probability of an event.

Here we have:

A= students having brown hair.

B= students having brown eyes.

A∩B= students having both brown hair and brown eyes.

Now,

P(A)=19/30  (ratio of addition of first column to the total entries)

P(B)=15/30  ( ratio of addition of second row to the total entries)

Also,

P(A∩B)=10/30

Now as:

P(A∩B) ≠ P(A)×P(B)

Hence, the two events are not independent.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

Answer:

B )The amount of interest accrued on the second account is double the amount of interest accrued on the first account.

Step-by-step explanation:

A sum of money is invested at 4% for 3 years and accrues $168 in interest.

Lets find the principle.

The formula for simple interest is =

I=frac{ptimes rtimes t}{100}

p = ?

i = 168

r = 4%

t = 3

Now putting these values in the formula;

168=frac{ptimes4times3}{100}

16800=12p

p = $1400

The same sum of money is invested in a second account at 6% for 4 years.

So, interest will be =

I=frac{1400times6times4}{100}

I = $336

Difference between both interests = 336-168=168 dollars

We can see, that the second account gives double amount of $168.

Now, the true statement is :

B )The amount of interest accrued on the second account is double the amount of interest accrued on the first account.

AYSO has 18 8th grade boys teams this year, but this a 28% (rounded to the nearest whole number) decreased from the prior year. How many 8th graders teams were there last year?

[ad_1]

Let the unknown value be ‘x’

Consider the three consecutive multiples of 5 as ‘x’, ‘(x + 5)’ and ‘(x + 10)’

First number = x
Second number = (x + 5)
Third number = (x + 10)

Using the above statement, “The square of the third number, decreased by 5 times the second number = 25 more than twice the product of the first two numbers,” let us form an equation

(x + 10)² – 5(x + 5) = 25 + (2 (x) (x + 5) )
x² + 20x + 100 – 5x – 25 = 25 + 2x² + 10x
x² + 15x + 75 = 2x² + 10x + 25

Bringing everything to one side,

0 = 2x² + 10x + 25 -x² -15x -75
or
2x² + 10x + 25 -x² -15x -75 = 0
x² – 5x – 50 = 0

Factorising the above equation, 
(x – 10) (x + 5) = 0 ⇒ x = 10 or x = -5

If x = 10, then the three consecutive numbers are 10, 15, 20.

Let us check if it follows the above statement!

Square of the third number, decreased by 5 times the second number = 25 more than twice the product of the first two numbers
20² – (5 x 15) = 25 + (2 x (10 x 15))
400 – 75 = 25 + (2 x 150)
325 = 25 + 300
325 = 325

Now let us try with x = -5. The three consecutive numbers are -5, 0, 5

Let us check if it follows the above statement.

Square of the third number, decreased by 5 times the second number = 25 more than twice the product of the first two numbers
5² – (5 x 0) = 25 + (2 x (-5 x 0))
25 – 0 = 25 + (2 x 0)
25 = 25 + 0
25 = 25

Hence both x = 10 and x = -5 are correct

A school principal wants to observe how classroom area has an effect on classroom learning. The principal randomly chooses a group of students of the same age and grade, and places them in a classroom with an area of 400 square feet. The test scores of the class are recorded and analyzed at the end of the semester.

[ad_1]

Answer:

Diameter=22 inches

Step-by-step explanation:

It is given that The area of a circle is approximately 379.94 square inches, then using the formula for the area of the circle, we get

A={pi}r^2

Substituting the given values, we have

379.94={pi}r^2

379.94=3.14r^2

frac{379.94}{3.14}=r^2

r^2=121

r=11

Now, the diameter of the circle is given as:

D=2r

Putting the value of r, we have

D=2(11)

D=22 inches

Thus, the diameter of the circle is 22 inches.

Answer:

60 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

The area of the school is

165(300) = 49500 square feet.

The area of the parking lot with the school is

(165+75)(300+75) = 240(375) = 90000 square feet.  This means the area of just the parking lot is

90000-49500 = 40500 square feet.

The area of the new expanded lot will be doubled; this means it will be

2(40500) = 81000 square feet.  Adding back the area of the school, this means the total lot will be

81000+49500 = 130500 square feet.

The width will be 375+x and the length will be 240+x; this gives us

130500 = (375+x)(240+x)

Multiplying the binomials gives us

130500 = 90000+375x+240x+x²

130500 = 90000+615x+x²

To solve this, we first set it equal to 0.  We do this by subtracting 130500 from each side:

130500-130500 = 90000+615x+x²-130500

0 = x²+615x-40500

We will use the quadratic formula:

x=frac{-bpm sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}

Substituting our values for a, b and c,

x=frac{-615pm sqrt{615^2-4(1)(-40500)}}{2(1)}\\=frac{-615pm sqrt{378225--162000}}{2}\\=frac{-615pm sqrt{378225+162000}}{2}\\=frac{-615pm sqrt{540225}}{2}\\=frac{-615pm 735}{2}\\=frac{-615+735}{2}text{ or }frac{-615-735}{2}\\=frac{120}{2}text{ or }frac{-1350}{2}\\=60text{ or }-675

We do not use negative numbers for measurement, so x = 60.
