Math!!!!!!HELP!!! :(
kilogram is a unit of mass while gallon is a unit of volume. you can relate them by using density of a particular substance (density is mass per unit volume or d = m/V) for example, if we consider water, which has a density of 1 g/mL or 1 kg/L, and recalling that 1 gallon is 3...

do you mean how many hours will it take for the feeder to give all of the food he/she is holding? if so, then we first convert 3 kg to grams: 1 kg = 1000 g ; thus 3 kg = 3000 g now we divide 3000 by 150 to get the time needed: 3000 / 150 = 20 hours hope this helps~ :)

to get the resultant or the total distance, we use distance formula: d = sqrt[ (x2-x1)^2 + (y2-y1)^2 ] where (x1,y1) is our reference/starting point, and (x2,y2) is the final point assuming our reference point is at the origin which is at (0,0) d = sqrt[ (x2)^2 + (y2)^2 ] ...

stoichiometry
first, make sure the equation is balanced,, to determine which is limiting, we calculate the amount of product produced by each given: for 6 mol N2: 6 mol N2 * (2 mol NH3 / 1 mol N2) = 12 mol NH3 for 12 mol H2: 12 mol H2 * (2 mol NH3 / 3 mol H2) = 8 mol NH3 (a) since H2 ...

Pre Calc
recall that tan(x) can be rewritten as tan (x) = sin (x) / cos (x) substituting: sin(x) / cos(x) = 5 sin(x) the sin(x) will be cancelled: 1/cos(x) = 5 cos(x) = 1/5 solving this, x = +/- 1.369 since it must be on interval -π < x < π x = - 1.369

math
6n^2-19n+15=0 to solve this we can either factor it (if it's factorable) or use quadratic formula,, here we just use quadratic formula: for a given quadratic equation, ax^2 + bx + c = 0, x = [-b +- sqrt(b^2 - 4*a*c)]/(2*a) note: +- is plus or minus where a = numerical ...

math
to get the fractional part of girls, we first subtract 35 from 80 to get the number of girls: 80 - 35 = 45 then we divide this by the total, which is 80: 45/80 reduce to lowest term by dividing both numerator and denominator by the GCF (greatest common factor) which is 5: 45/5...

geometry
recall that the volume of rectangular prism is given by V = L*W*H where L=length, W=width, H=height substituting the given: V = 2*3*5 V = 30 cubic cm recall that the surface area of rectangular prism is given by SA = 2LH + 2WH + 2LW substituting the values: SA = 2*2*5 + 2*3*5...

math
by observation, we see that a given value of x is 2 greater than its corresponding value of y,, since it's fixed (or the difference between the values is constant), we say that the relationship between them is linear. getting the equation, we first find the slope of the ...

math
y = x - 4 to get y, just plug in each given value of x,, if x = 4, y = 4 - 4 = 0 if x = 0, y = 0 - 4 = -4 if x = -4, y = -4 - 4 = -8 if x = -6, y = -6 - 4 = -10 hope this helps~ :)

chemistry
to find the mass percentage of one component, you divide the its mass to the total mass * 100 for example, if you have initially 20 grams of Na and 30 grams of Fe, total mass = 20 + 30 = 50 if we want to find mass percentage of Na: (20/50) * 100 = 40% for mass percent of Fe: (...

your answer, 48<32, is correct (i mean, yes it's false),, hmm i don't see another statement which is false~
