**check for typos**

length or height? How many feet is A ?

I already went through trying to draw a 60, 60, 60, 90 triangle with this student.

You are welcome :)
*May 1, 2016*

**Math**

whew, finally someone got one right !!! :)
*May 1, 2016*

**MATH**

NO, To make D you need three 60 degree angles and a 90 degree angle. Try to draw that.

**MATH**

An equilateral triangle has three 60 degree angles. That leaves no corner for a 90 degree angle.

Please check for typos !! If you used length, width and thickness you probably mean ft^3 not ft^2. That messed you up big time when you wrote 144 which is square inches per square foot. What you want is CUBIC feet per CUBIC yard which is 3^3 = 27 ft^3/yd^3 ( despite the fact ...

If it grows exponentially you mean 15,000 * 1.07^x in other words compounding not 1.07 x In that case C is correct 1.07^12 = 2.25 A rough estimate to remember is that 7 percent compounded for ten years is about a doubling.

You could just as easily lose 5 or more as win five or more. The triangle is symmetric about that middle point note C = 252 for point C10,5 then 210 to the left and 210 to the right. The middle point can go either way Too bad you had an even number of questions :) That is what...

**Ms Sue, not symmetric. Could get 5 wrong !**

Note my check comment

note that if I split the probability of getting 5 right in half I would get .123 less which would be .5 :) (good check)
