first pie cost 6 * 20 = 120 cents second pie cost 8 * 30 = 240 cents it doubled which is an increase of 100 % [ (240 -120)/120 ] * 100 = 100%

You need five if you have no typos. Draw it on a piece of paper. to use math: tile area = 1/6*1/6 = 1/36 rectangle area = 1/6 * 5/6 = 5/36 5/36 / 1/36 = 5

Maths
Unless you have a typo (which I suspect), five of them in a row would cover it.

There was another question in here that seems to have disappeared but my answer remained ?

physics
Heat out of steam= 20 {2260+4.2(100-T)} Heat into water = 80 (T-20) so 4(T-20) = 2260 + 4.2(100-T) 4 T - 80 = 2260 + 4200 - 4.2 T 8.2 T = 6540 T = 797 which is silly of course What it means is that 80 grams of water at 20 degrees simply can not condense 20 grams of steam. The ...

I posted two answers below the two you got. n^2 - 9 n + 81/4 = (n-9/2)^2 would be a perfect square n^2 - 6 n + 9 = (n-3)^2 would be a perfect square You can not factor n^2 - 9 n + 9

a^2-b^2 = (a-b)(a+b) y^2 - 25(x-1) unfortunately (x-1) is not a square of anything but (x-1)^.5 :) I suppose you could say [ y - 5 sqrt(x-1) ] [y + 5 sqrt(x-1) ] but that is really stretching it

Math
Now we could try completing the square n^2 - 9 n + 9 = y n^2 - 9 n = y -9 n^2 - 9 n + (9/2)^2 = y - 9 + 81/4 so n^2 - 9 n + 81/4 is a perfect square :) (n-9/2)(n-9/2)

well, what did you calculate for g moon? If it is not something like 9.81/6 it is wrong, but the 1/6 of earth gravity is a rough approximation.
