The neck length was recorded for 5 different giraffes.each measurement has been rounded to the nearest 1/2 foot .measuments:5 4 1/2 6 5 6 1/2 . How much longer are the two longest necks than the two shortest necks?


Answer 1


Answer: Difference between two longest and two shortest necks is 3 foot.

Step-by-step explanation:

Five giraffes having five different neck lengths as

Giraffe (1) = 5 foot

Giraffe (2) = 4.5 foot

Giraffe (3) = 6 foot

Giraffe (4) = 5 foot

Giraffe (5) = 6.5 foot

Now in the given question difference between two longest necks and two shortest necks were asked.

So total length of tow necks are Giraffe(3)+Giraffe(5)= 6+6.5 = 12.5 foot

Now total length of two shortest necks are Giraffe(2)+Giraffe(1) or Giraffe(4)= 4.5+5 = 9.5 foot

Difference between two longest and two shortest necks will be = 12.5-9.5 =3 foot.

If you have lived for a million seconds, how many birthdays have you had?


A million seconds is not that long.  My next birthday is in  1,296,000  seconds
from now, and I have already lived more than  2.3 billion seconds !

(1,000,000 seconds) x (1 day / 86,400 seconds) =

                 11days 13hours 46minutes 40seconds .

It's possible that you might have one birthday within that length of time,
but it's not guaranteed.  It would have to be the RIGHT million seconds.

If that's been your whole life so far ... you are 1 million seconds old ..,
then you have not had your first birthday yet.

You will only be 11.57 days old. 
Arguably, however old we are, we only have one 'birthday' which is the day of our birth. What is referred to as our first birthday is actually the the first anniversary of our birth and subsequent ones are the relevant anniversaries our birth.

American photographer Edward Steichen purchased the sculpture Bird in Space while in Paris, France. What occurred when he tried to turn to the United States with the sculpture?
It helps to find a common denominator:
2/5 x 2/2 = 4/10
1/2 x 5/5 = 5/10

2/5 = 4/10
1/2 = 5/10

From this, we can see that 2/5 is less than 1/2.

2/5 < 1/2

Holly missed 7 of 180 days this year. Approximately what percent of school days was Holly in school?


Hi There!

Since there are 180 school days and Holly missed 7 then she attended  days.

So, to find out the percent of school days she attended school you have to divide  173/180, 173 represents school days she attended or numerator, and 180 represents total school days the denominator. Once you divide 173/180 you should get  0.96111111111, but if you round it, the answer will be 96%.


1. Divide 173/180= 0.96111111111

2. Round you're answer  0.96111111111

Final Answer- Holly attended 96% percent of school days.

Hope This Helps:)
