**Prob**

well lets figure out probability of all ones, then multiply by 6 1/6 * 1/6 * 1/6 = 1/6^3 now probability of three of any old number is 6/6^3 = 1/36 40/36 = $1.11111 but long term the house should come out ahead :) so $1.12

weight = 7 * 9.81 Newtons force down slope = weight * sin 30 = (1/2)weight force up slope = 381 N net force up slope = 381 -(1/2) weight = 347 N a = F/m = 347/7 = 49.5 m/s^2 v = 5 + a t v = 5 + 49.5 t distance = average speed * t 9 = (1/2)(v+5) t 18 = (10+49t) t 49 t^2 + 10 t...

power = work/time since the time is the same, the power ratio is the work ratio work in = kinetic energy out kinetic energy proportional to v^2 [ like (1/2)m v^2 ] v'^2/v^2 = 16
