The ratio of the areas of two similar polygons is 400:25. what is the ratio of their corresponding sides

Answers

Answer 1
Answer: The ratio of areas is given by:
 A1 / A2 = 400/25 = k ^ 2
 Therefore, the relationship of the sides is given by:
 L1 / L2 = k
 Clearing k we have:
 k = root (400/25)
 Rewriting we have:
 L1 / L2 = k = 20/5
 Answer:
 The ratio of their corresponding sides is:
 20: 5
Answer 2
Answer:

Answer: 16:1

simplify 400:25 by dividing 400 by 25, which is 16.

Mr Wallace took 600mg of medicine. This was 75% of the full dose. What was the full dose?

Answers

Set up a proportion.

75% = 0.75

600/0.75 = x/1

Cross multiply:

0.75x = 600

Divide 0.75 to both sides:

x = 800

So the full does is 800mg.
.25 x 600 = 150
150 + 600 = 750mg

The difference of 2x and 5 is greater than -3 and less than or equal to 11

Answers

Answer:

-3 < x ≤ 8

Step-by-step explanation:

First, write this statement with symbols:

2x - 5 > -3, but also:

2x - 5 ≤ 11

Adding 5 to both sides of the first inequality yields 2x > 2. pr x > 1.

Adding 5 to both sides of the second inequality results in 2x ≤ 16, or x ≤ 8.

Thus, -3 < x ≤ 8 is the shortest way in which to write the given information.

there were 180 people at a civic club fundraiser. members paid 4.50 per ticket, no members paid 8.25 per ticket. if the total receipts amounted to 1222.50 how many members and how many nonmembers attended the fundraiser

Answers

X= # of members
y= # of nonmembers

QUANTITY EQUATION
x + y= 180

COST EQUATION
$4.50x + $8.25y= $1222.50


STEP 1:
Use substitution or elimination to solve. I'm using elimination. Multiply quantity equation by -4.50 to eliminate the x term and solve for y.

-4.50(x + y)= -4.50(180)
-4.50x - 4.50y= -810


STEP 2:
Add the cost equation and the step 1 equation together. The x term is cancelled and we solve for y.

$4.50x + $8.25y= $1222.50
-4.50x - 4.50y= -810

3.75y= 412.50
divide both sides by 3.75

y= 110 nonmembers


STEP 3:
Substitute the y value into either original equation to solve for x.

x + y= 180

x + 110= 80
subtract both sides by 110

x= 70 members


CHECK:
use the opposite equation as chosen for step 3.

$4.50x + $8.25y= $1222.50
4.50(70) + 8.25(110)= 1222.50
315.00 + 907.50= 1222.50
1222.50= 1222.50 √


ANSWER: There were 70 members and 110 nonmembers attending.

Which of the binomials below is a factor of this trinomial? 4x2 + 20x - 24

A. x + 4
B. x + 1
C. x - 1
D. x - 4

Answers

Answer:  the correct option is (C) x - 1.

Step-by-step explanation:  We are given to select the correct binomial that is a factor of the following trinomial :

To select the factor, we need to factorize expression (i). To factorize, we need two integers with sum 20 and product -96.

From (i), we have

So, the factors of the given trinomial are 4, (x + 6) and (x - 1).

Since 4 and ( x + 6) are not in the options, so (x - 1),  is the correct binomial.

Thus, (C) is the correct option.

4x²+20x-24
Simplify by 4:
x²+5x-6
(x+6)(x-1)

The answer is x-1.

What is the absolute value of -8 and 8?

Answers

Step-by-step explanation: The absolute value of an integer is its distance from zero on a number line. Since -8 is 8 units from zero, the absolute value of -8 is +8. Notice that I put the "+" in front of 8 to show that it's positive.

On the other hand, 8 would also be 8 units from zero so the absolute value of 8 would also be +8.  

Because taking an absolute value of a number means making positive, then we can conclude that the absolute value of both numbers are 8.

|-8| = 8
|8| = 8
