It takes 31 employees and \$7500 to build a car, and it takes 19 employees and \$4300 to build a motorcycle. Genghis Motors wants to spend more than \$84000 to build cars and motorbikes using at most 706 employees. Let C denote the number of cars they build and M the number of motorbikes they build. Write an inequality that represents the condition based on the number of employees.Write an inequality that represents the condition based on the number of dollars.

we know it takes 31 workers to do a car, and 19 to do a motorcycle… so hmmm to make “c” cars, it will then take 31*c workers, or 31c

to make “m” motorcycles, it will then take 19*c or 19c employees

whatever those amounts of workers needed to make both, must be an amount  that is 706 or less, thus

31c + 19m ⩽ 706

now…. it takes \$7500 to make a car and thus to make “c” cars it will then take 7500* c or 7500c

it takes \$4300 for a motorbike, thus to make “m” motorbikes, it will then take 4300*m, or 4300m

whatever those dollar amounts are, must be 84000 or more, since Genghis Motors wants to spend that OR more

7500c + 4300m > 84000

To decorate his bedroom, Jesse spent \$112.65 on new furniture, \$29.75 on paint, and \$48.33 on accessories. About how much did he spend to decorate his bedroom?

1. If 1 monster = 7.2 aliens and 1 monster = 15.5 oranges. So we can consider it as 7.2 aliens = 15.5 oranges. To find out how many oranges are equal to 1 alien we need to do this:
1 alien = 15.5 oranges/7.2;
1 alien = 2.15 oranges (approximately).

2. We have everything to solve this problem. So in a scaled drawing 1 mm = 150 m. => 1 m = 1/150 mm on the drawing. Then 1 m^2 = (1/150 mm)^2 =>
1 m^2 = 1/22500 mm^2.
So the answer is 1/22500 mm^2.

3. The formula of the length is S=V*t. where V – the speed and t = the time. We already know that V = 60 mph and t = 8 seconds. But the measure of the speed is miles per hour, so we need to convert 8 seconds to hours.
8 seconds = 8/60 minutes = (8/60)/60 hours;
Our solution looks like this:
1) S = 60 mph * (8/60)/60 hours;
2) S = 8/60 miles;
3) S = 0.13 miles;

4. First let’s find out how many gallons of gas she spent during her trip:
172.5/30 = 5.75 gal;
Now we can find price per gallon:
20,70/5.75 = 3.60\$ per gallon;
So the approximate cost of gas in dollars per gallon is 3.60\$ per gallon.

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 best describes why politicians spend millions of dollars on advertising during elections?

Americans will pay more for goods produced in Mexico in 2011.

Explanation:

This is a situation of devaluation of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso. If in 2009 the dollar was worth 16 pesos, but in 2011 it is 14, it means that the purchasing power of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso has decreased, although it is still high.

In that case, for an American to buy products produced in Mexico in 2011, he or she will spend a little more dollars than he or she would spend in 2009. This is common, since the currencies fluctuate according to the financial market . Thus, the dollar can be valued or devalued, as happened in this example.

If, for example, in 2015 the dollar will buy 20 pesos, it will mean that the dollar appreciated in relation to the peso, increasing the purchasing power of Americans for Mexican products.

A sun-sized star will spend most of its lifetime as a:

First, let’s talk about temperature. As I mentioned above, the color of a star comes from its surface temperature. A star that emits mostly red light will have a surface temperature of about 3,500 Kelvin. Just for comparison, the Sun’s surface temperature is about 6,000 Kelvin and emits yellow/white light.

Red Dwarf Stars

The first kind of red stars are red dwarfs. These are actually the most common stars in the Universe. The smallest red dwarf stars can be 7.5% the mass of our Sun, and be as large as about half the mass of the Sun. Even a star with this little mass has enough temperature and pressure at its core to carry out nuclear fusion. This is where atoms of hydrogen are fused into atoms of helium; this process releases lots and lots of heat.

Red dwarfs generate much less energy than a larger star like our Sun. In fact, a red dwarf emits 1/10,000th the energy. Even the largest red dwarf only has about 10% of the Sun’s luminosity. Red dwarfs use their hydrogen fuel slowly and so they last a very long time. It’s believed that a red dwarf star could survive for 10 trillion years.

Red Giant Stars

Stars like our Sun spend most of their lives as main sequence stars with a surface temperature that’s much hotter than a red star. But at the end of their lives, when they have used up all their hydrogen fuel, these medium-sized stars will puff out much bigger than their original size – these are red giants. When our Sun becomes a red giant, it will expand out to encompass the orbit of the Earth. After a few hundred million years, it will puff its outer layers and become a white dwarf star.

They start out as regular stars, but they grow to such an enormous size that their heat is spread out across a much larger surface area. This is why they appear very bright, but still have a red color.

Red Supergiant

The biggest stars in the Universe are the red supergiants. They’re not the most massive; Betelgeuse, for example, only has about 20 times the mass of the Sun. But the largest red supergiants can expand out to be more than 1500 times the size of the Sun. Imagine a star that engulfed the orbit of Saturn! Just like the red giants, red supergiants occur when a star has used up the hydrogen fuel in its core, and then expand out during their helium-burning phase. Red supergiants will have the mass to continue fusing elements in their cores, all the way up to iron.

Stars probably only exist as red supergiants for a few hundred thousand years; a million at most. At the end of this period, the star will have used up all the fuel it can in its core; most will detonate as Type II supernovae.

We have written many articles about stars here on Universe Today. Here’s an article about a planet surviving when its star became a red giant, and here’s a deathwatch on a red giant star.

Margie calculated that she would spend \$175 on school supplies this year. She actually spent \$97.50 on school supplies. What is Margie’s percent of error?

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.

Lou has 3 over 4 of an hour to do his math homework, play video games and help with dinner. If he splits his time equally between the three activities, how much time will he spend on each? _____ of an hour

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.

Television helped advertisers reach a wider market, and Americans were encouraged to buy the many products they saw in ads. all of the above

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America.

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner.

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony.

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world.

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too.

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way.

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again.

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it.

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies.

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists.

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out.

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

Americans will pay more for goods produced in Mexico in 2011.

Explanation:

This is a situation of devaluation of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso. If in 2009 the dollar was worth 16 pesos, but in 2011 it is 14, it means that the purchasing power of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso has decreased, although it is still high.

In that case, for an American to buy products produced in Mexico in 2011, he or she will spend a little more dollars than he or she would spend in 2009. This is common, since the currencies fluctuate according to the financial market . Thus, the dollar can be valued or devalued, as happened in this example.

If, for example, in 2015 the dollar will buy 20 pesos, it will mean that the dollar appreciated in relation to the peso, increasing the purchasing power of Americans for Mexican products.

How much should you spend on your best friend’s 18 birthday?

We could say that the letter of claim is not complete. A correct claim letter needs. For instances it would be of great importance if he could add: what the missing parts look like so they can send them and the model and serial numbers so they could track the product.

A complete and formal complaint letter should have the following information:

Claimant’s information: first and last names, ID number, address and contact telephone number.

Data of the company: you must identify with name and surname if you know the person to whom you are going to go, if not, the department to which you are going. If you do not know the department to which you should go, it is usually Customer Service

Body of the letter:

Facts or motivation of the complaint (this is exposed although important details could be added): here you must explain in detail what happened. Among the main recommendations for writing a letter of complaint, the most important is that you treat the recipient correctly even though you have great discontent. You can prove the above with attached documents

Request: you must say what you want to request. That is, the solution you propose.

Remedy deadline: you must specify the period of time you give them to be solved.

Acting otherwise: you must indicate what you will do if you do not receive a response or if the answer you are given has no solution. You can specify that you will resort to all existing ways to claim your rights as a consumer / citizen

Answer: The triangle ABC translated 2 units left and 5 units upward. Te translation rule is T-2,5(x,y).

Explanation:

It is given that Randy draws triangle ABC on the coordinate plane with vertices A(7, –4), B(10, 3), and C(6, 1). After translation the coordinates of the image are A′(5, 1), B′(8, 8), and C′(4, 6).

In the translation the position of a figure charges without making any in size and shape.

Let the triangle shifts by the rule Ta,b(x,y), where a is horizontal shift and b is vertical shift then,

Since A(7,-4) and A'(5,1), therefore,

Compare the coordinates.

a=-2

b=5

So the translation rule is T-2,5(x,y).

Fiona has \$18 to spend. She spent \$4.25, including tax, to buy a notebook. She needs to save \$9.75, but she wants to buy a snack. If crackers cost \$0.50 per package including tax, what inequality would show the maximum number of packages that Fiona can buy? Solve your inequality by showing your work and steps

It is better to bet on 7.

Step-by-step explanation:

It is given that,

We are rolling two 6-sided numbered cubes and placing bets on the ‘sum of the outcome’.

So, the pair of numbers will be the possible options for the outcome to be their sum.

Now, the possibility to have the sum of 3, 4, 7 and 11 are:

3 = 1+2 i.e. only one pair is the possibility

4 = 1+3 = 2+2 i.e there are two pairs as the possibility

7 =  1+6 = 2+5 = 3+4 i.e. there are three possible pairs

11 = 5+6 i.e. only one pair is the possibility

So, the maximum possibility of a sum to be the outcome is when the sum = 7 i.e. there are 3 possible pairs for the sum to be 7.

Hence, 7 has the highest possibility to become the outcome.

So, It is better to bet on 7.
