TO be on the 1-km race team, Celia must have a mean time less than 5 min 50 secs in 6 tryout games. Her times in 5 races are: 6 min 2 s, 5 min 53 s, 5 min 53 s, 5 min 45 s, 6 min, and 5 min 34 s. WHat itme should Celia aim for in her sixth race to make the team. Is this possible? Explain. HELP PLZ AND THANK U:)
plz help TIRREEEDDD NEED ASSISTANCE. sorry im a little pushy but NEED HELP!!
alright that's fine jus thelp everyone else out first. don't help me. :(
Her total time for 6 races must be under
6 x (5 5/6 min) = 35 min
Total time for the first five races is already ---. (Add them up). You seem to have made a mistake and listed six times, with 5 min 53 s appearing twice. Subtract the sum of her FIVE times from 35 minutes to find out how fast she must run the sizth race.
If the 5min 53 s time as supposed to appear only once, her total times so far add up to 27 min 134 s = 29 min 14 s. The last race must be run in under 5 min 46 s. That should be possible, since she has run that fast before.
thanks for the help...
really didn't need to do anything to figure this out...
