If 1 bolt weighed 1/15 an ounce 15x16=240 and 240x3=720
so he bought 720 bolts

Question
A car is traveling at a speed of 75 km/h. Identify the correct conversion factor setup required to compute the speed of the car in m/s. A) 75km 1hr x 1000m 1km x 1hr 60min x 60s 1min B) 75km 1hr x 1000m 1km x 1hr 60min x 1min 60s C) 75km 1hr x 1000m 75km x 1hr 60min x 1min 60s D) 75km 1hr x 1000m 75km x 1hr 60min x 60s 1min
Solution 1

Therefore, the speed of the car in m/s is m/s i.e., option (B) is correct.

What is the equation?

The definition of an equation is a mathematical statement that shows that two mathematical expressions are equal.

Here given that,

A car is traveling at a speed of km/h.

As we know,

So,

km/h= m/s

Hence, the speed of the car in m/s is m/s i.e., option (B) is correct.

Question
Is 8 yd greater than 288 in.
Solution 1
3 feet is equal to 1 yard and 3 feet is 36 inches. 288 inches divided by 36 is 8 so 8 yards is equal to 288 inches.

Solution 2
I believe they are the same since one yard is 36 in, so 8x36 is 288. Hope i helped :)

Question
Simplify and factories 16g + 32h - 48g - 40h
Solution 1
For this question you can say:
16g - 48g = -32g
and 32h - 40h = -8h
so you will have:
-32g - 8h and you can factor -8 so you will have:
-8(4g + h) :)))

Question
The Mulraney's home has 2,550 square feet of living space. A contractor is building an addition to their home that will increase the square footage by 8%. What will be the square footage of their home with the addition?
Solution 1
First we have to find out how much the Mulraney's square footage increases with the addition.  To do this, we should multiply the percent of expansion, 8% (0.08) by their current square footage (2, 550)

0.08 * 2,550 = 204

This means that the addition is adding 204 square feet to the Mulraney's house.

To find the total number of square footage, we just add the original (2,550 feet) to the addition (204).

2,550 + 204 = 2754

Therefore, the square footage of the Mulraney's home with the addition is 2754 square feet.
Question
Write the worlds as an algebraic expression. the width plus twelve. how do i do it?
Solution 1

Reason/Explanation:
It's asking us to write the words as an algebraic expression. "The width plus twelve." For starters, we don't know what the width is, so we use a variable, X. Now we add 12. So we use X + 12. The width is X, plus twelve.

-DustinBR
Solution 2
X + 12 correct

You have to find x then add 13
