The lengths of two sides of a right triangle are 5 inches and 8 inches. What is the difference between the two possible lengths of the third side of the triangle? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.

If 5 in and 8 in are legs:hypotenuse = √(5²+8²) = √89 ≈ 9.4 in. If 5 in is the leg and 8 in is the hypotenuse:other leg = √(8²-5²) = √39 ≈ 6.2 in. The difference between the two possible lengths of the third side = 9.4 – 6.2 = 3.2 in.

Find P(Y|B) from the information in the table. | X | Y |Z | total a | 8 | 80 | 40 | 128 b | 6 | 34 | 45 | 85 c | 23 | 56 | 32 | 111 total | 37 | 170 | 117 | 324 To the nearest tenth, P(Y|B) =____

P(Y|B) reads ‘Probability of event Y happening given event B is happening’. This is a conditional probability and the formula is given as P(Y|B) = P(Y∩B) / P(B) From the table, P(Y∩B) = 34/324 and P(B) = 85/324 Hence,P(Y|B) = (34/324) ÷ (85/324) = 34/85

What is the molality of a solution containing 5.0 moles of solute in 3.2 kg of solvent? Round to the nearest tenth.

This problem is to apply Roult’s Law. Roult’s Law states that the vapor pressure, p, of a solution of a non-volatile solute is equal to the vapor pressure of the pure solvent, Po solv, times the mole fraction of the solvent, Xsolv p = Xsolv * Po sol X solv …
