To find the total amount of floor covered add the amount of carpeting and tiling together. So 1/2 = 2/4, then 1/4 + 2/4 = (1 + 2) / 4 = 3/4. 3/4 of Captain Kirk's floor is covered.

A holding pen for cattle must be square and have a diagonal length of 84 84 meters. a. find the length of a side of the pen. b. find the area of the pen.
Solution 1
We know that
Applying the Pythagoras Theorem
cÂ²=aÂ²+bÂ²
in a square
a=b
c is the diagonal-----> 84 m
cÂ²=2aÂ²--------> aÂ²=cÂ²/2-----> aÂ²=84Â²/2-----> aÂ²=3528-----------> a=âˆš3528 m

âˆš3528 m or 59.40 m

the area of the pen is aÂ²------> 3528 mÂ²

3528 mÂ²

Question
Sara loves to go hiking. This week she hiked 3 miles on Monday, 4 miles on Tuesday, and 3 miles on Thursday. Last week Sara hiked 8 miles. How many more miles did Sara hike this week than last week?*
Solution 1
This week, the total = 3 + 4 + 3 = 10 miles

Last week = 8 miles.

The number more = 10 - 8 = 2 miles.

2 miles more.
Question
Use the intercept form to find the equation of the line with the given intercepts. the intercept form of the equation of a line with intercepts (a, 0) and (0, b.is
Solution 1
Assuming that the "given intercepts" are (a,0) and (0,b), the equation of the line thru these 2 pts. is easily found thru use of the point-slope formula:

Â  Â  Â  Â  Â b-0
m = -------- = -b/a
Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 0-a

Then y-0 = (-b/a)(x-a), or y = (-b/a)(x-a) (answer)
Question
donovan bought 5 1/2 pounds of flour for \$ 8.25. How much did the flour cost per pound? Give your answer in the correct dollar form.
Solution 1
Unit price per pound =Â Â \$ 8.25 / 5.5 = \$1.50

the flour cost \$ 1.50 per poundÂ
Solution 2
We want the unit rate:Â  cost of flour per pound.

\$8.25
--------- = \$1.50/lb
5.5 lb

Question
How to find an area of a circumbscribed hexagon using the diameter?
Solution 1
The formula for the area of a circumscribed hexagonÂ  = 1/2 * 6 * a * rÂ  Â  where a = side length and r = radius of the circleÂ  ( = 1/2 the diameter)Â  so in terms of the diameter and side length its 1/2 * 1/2 * 6 *d * aÂ  =Â  Â 1.5 ad.

You can calculate the value of aÂ  by using trigonometryÂ  You consider one of the 6 isosceles triangles that make up the hexagon. The vertex angle of these triangles = 60 degrees so:-

tan 30Â  =Â  1/2 a /Â  rÂ  =Â  1/2 a / 1/2 dÂ  = a/d

a =Â  d tan 30Â  = sqrt3 d / 3

Substituting for a :-Â

So theÂ  required formula for the area of the hexagon = 1.5 adÂ

= 1.5 * sqrt3 d * d / 3Â  =Â  1/2 sqrt3 d^2Â  Â Answer
Question
How much money must be deposited today to become â€‹\$1300 in 20 years at 7.5% compoundedâ€‹ continuously?
Solution 1
Use the formula for Amount for continuous compounding:

A = Pe^(rt)

Here A = \$1300, r = 0.075 and t = 20 yrs.Â  Thus,

1300 = P*e^(0.075*20), orÂ  Â  1300 = P (4.482).
Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â \$1300
Solving for P:Â  P = ----------------- = \$290.07Â  (answer)
Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â 4.482
Question
How to find all values of x where the tangent line is horizontal?
Solution 1
Your question is a rather general one.Â  However, it can be said that differentiating the given function of x with respect to x and setting the result = to 0, then solving for x, will produce all values of x where the t. l. is horizontal.
Question
If the discriminant is positive how many solutions are there
Solution 1

yields 2 real roots

Step-by-step explanation:

To find the number of real roots for a quadratic, we apply the discriminate. The discriminate is the inside portion of the square root from the quadratic formula.

â€¢ yields 2 real roots

â€¢ yields 1 real root

â€¢ [tx]b^2-4ac<0[/tex] yields no real roots

Example:

where a=4, b=-7, and c=2

.

It has 2 real roots
