Hello!

First you have to make the denominators the same

2/3 = 16/24

3/8 = 9/24

Now you subtract them

16/24 - 9/24 = 7/24

The answer is 7/24

Hope this helps!

Question
A miner descended 1200 feet into a mine. While in the mine, he then rose 450 feet and then descended 150 feet. What was the miner's net gain or loss in altitude? 1500 ft 600 ft –1500 ft –900 ft
Solution 1
The net loss is 1150
Solution 2
So, let's solve it!
If he rose 450:
1200 + 450 = 1650
If he descended 150:
1650-150 = 1500
1500 feet, his net gain is -300 feet, his loss is 300 feet

Question
Robin’s scores: 99, 108, 102, 107, 119 Evelyn’s scores: 125, 137, 138, 145, 145 Find and compare the medians of the data sets. Do the medians support your conclusion that Robin is winning the game?
Solution 1
To find the median, just sort the numbers from least to greatest and find the number in the center. 

Robin's scores: 99, 102, 107, 108, 119. Median is 107. 

Evelyn's scores: 125, 137, 138, 145, 145. Median is 138. 

The median from Evelyn's scores is greater than the median from Robin's. Therefore, the medians do NOT support the conclusion that Robin is winning the game. 
Solution 2

Answer:

The median score for Robin is 107. The Median Score of Evelyn is 138. The medians are the same as the means, so the same conclusion that Robin is winning will be drawn.

Question
2x-8 what is the answer
Solution 1
2x-8 if it means 2 times -8 then 2 times -8=2 time s8 times -1=16 times -16 if it is x is a placeholder then undistribute where ab+ac=a(b+c) so 2x-8 2(x)-2(4)=2(x-4) so the factored form is 2(x-4) there is no equation so we cannot solve for x 2x-8 could be equal to 3 or pi for all we know
Solution 2
The answer is x - 4.

You have to isolate the variable so you divide 2 from both sides leaving you with x - 4. Since you can't simplify it anymore, the answer will be x - 4. Hope I helped.
Question
From a barrel of colored marbles , you randomly select 5 blue , 2 yellow , 3 red , 4 green , and 2 purple marbles. Find the expreimetal probability of randomly selecting a marble that is NOT yellow . 1. 9 / 16 2. 7 / 8 3. 8 / 9 4. 3 / 4
Solution 1
I think it's 7/8 because there's 16 marbles and 14 aren't blue so you have a 14/16 chance of not getting a yellow marble which simplifies to 7/8
Solution 2

Answer:

4/5

Step-by-step explanation:

From your experiment of drawing 20 marbles you now have a proportion of non-yellow marbles to total marbles and from that you can come up with an experimental probability that you'll draw a non-yellow marble.  

P(not yellow) = 16/20  

But that can be reduced by dividing top and bottom by 4:  


Question
An ice cream cone has a diameter of 2 inches and a height of 5 inches. What is the volume of the ice cream cone? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth. (Use 3.14 for π.) 10.47 in.3 20.93 in.3 5.23 in.3 15.7 in.3
Solution 1
We know that
[volume of a cone]=(1/3)*pi*r²*h
for r=2/2---> 1 in
h=5 in

[volume of a cone]=(1/3)*pi*1²*5-----> 5.23 in³

the answer is
5.23 in.3
Solution 2
To find the volume of the cone, you will use the formula for the volume of a cone and replace the r(radius and the h(height) with the given values.

V = 1/3 x pi x r^2 x h
     1/3 x 3.14 x 1^2 x 5
V = 5.2281 

The volume is approximately 5.23 cubic inches.
Question
How many lines of symmetry does a regular polygon with 16 sides have
Solution 1

A regular polygon with 16 sides has a line of symmetry. It has 16 lines of symmetry as well.

What is apothem?

Apothem for a regular polygon is a line segment that originates from the center of the regular polygon and touches the mid of one of the sides of the regular polygon.

It is perpendicular to the regular polygon's side it touches.

Regular polygons have all sides the same and that apothem bisects the side in two parts, (provable by symmetry).

A regular polygon with 16 sides has a line of symmetry.

It has 16 lines of symmetry as well.

Arrange these numbers from least to greatest: 2/5 5/7 4/9 A. 2/5 5/7 4/9 B.2/5 4/9 5/7 C.5/7 4/9 2/5 D.4/9 2/5 5/7
Solution 1
It's B cuz you can divide each fraction for instance 2/5 divide 2 ➗ 5 it equals 0.4 but I turned it into 40% and that's how I found least to greatest
Question
-104=8x what is x ????
Solution 1
-104=8x \\ \\ - \frac{104}{8} = x \ / \ divide \ each \ side \ by \ 8 \\ \\ -13 = x \ / \ simplify \\ \\ x = -13 \ / \ switch \ solution \ around \\ \\

The final result is, x = -13.
Solution 2
-104 = 8x. The x is being multiplied by 8, so to undo the multiplication divide both sides of the equal sign by 8. 8x/8 = x and -104/8 = -13 so x = -13.
