Speed is distance traveled over time, or v = d/t Let x = time needed for the next 60 km 120 km/hr (average) = [(speed1) + (speed2)] / 2 120 = (60 + (60/t)) / 2 240 = 60 + 60/t 60/t = 240 - 60 60/t = 180 km/hr (speed2) time needed to achieve this speed is t = 60/180 = 1/3 hr

Sorry. I see that r = 0.81 according to the problem, not 0.8. Well substituting again, d = 16 + (0.81)(32 / (1 - 0.81)) d = 152.4 ft.

This is an example of infinite geometric sequence. Formula for sum of infinite geom sequence: S = a1 / (1 - r) Total distance traveled: d = (distance ball dropped) + (1st bounce up) + (1st bounce down) + (2nd bounce up) + (2nd bounce down) + ... d = 16 + 16(0.8) + 16(0.8) + 16...

In an arithmetic sequence, an = a1 + (n-1)d where an = nth term a1 = first term n = number of terms d = common difference The sixth term is 20.6 so, 20.6 = a1 + (6-1)d 20.6 = a1 + 5d The ninth term is 30.2 so, 30.2 = a1 + (9-1)d 30.2 = a1 + 8d Now you have two equations, to ...

**Functions**

Even: Algebraically, we substitute x as -x and if it goes back to original function, then it's even. Thus, f(-x) = f(x). Visually, if this function is graphed and you see that it is symmetric to y-axis, then it's even. Odd: If f(-x) = -f(x). I will assume the function ...

**Math: Line Symmetry and Reflection**

1. Yes 2. It's D, since y-coordinate is increased by 3. 3. Yes 4. If a point is reflected over the x-axis, the y-coordinate of the point changes its sign to opposite. So the points become A'(2,5), B'(-3,-5) and C'(3,3).

In the word "Tallahassee", there is only one letter T out of 11 letters, so the probability of getting a T is 1/11. There are 2 letter E in the word, so probability of getting an E is 2/11. The probability of getting a letter T OR letter E is therefore 1/11 + 2/11 = ...

In the word "Tallahassee", there is only one letter T out of 11 letters, so the probability of getting a T is 1/11. There is no letter F in the word, so probability of getting an F is 0/11 or 0. The probability of getting a letter T OR letter F is therefore 1/11 + 0...

159 gallons are being burned per second, so if two seconds have passed, 159 x 2 = 318 gallons Thus, to get the total volume in gallons burned after some time, we just multiply the rate (159 gal/s) by the time passed (in seconds). So if three seconds have passed, 159 x 3 = 477 ...

Let x = food or meal Thus the share of each men is x/120. And the share of each children in x/200. It was said in the problem that 150 children took the meal, so the total meal taken by these children is number of children multiplied by the share of each: 150 * x/200 = 3x / 4...

Yes that's right. You have to equate the expressions for widths and for the lengths, since left and right widths (and lengths) have the same dimensions. You may rewrite the equation for y=3x+3÷6 as y = (3x + 3)/6 And now you have an expression for y, we can ...

Tangent is opposite / adjacent, so we can say that in tan (theta) = 1/2, the 1 and 2 are the sides of the right triangle and c^2 = a^2 + b^2 c^2 = 1^2 + 2^2 c = sqrt(5) is the hypotenuse. Cosine is adjecent / hypotenuse, so cos(theta) = 2 / sqrt(5) Method is the same for other...

Use the formula: h = vo*t - (1/2)gt^2 Since the rock experiences freefall, initial velocity (vo) is zero: h = -(1/2)gt^2 Substitute: h = -(1/2)(-9.8)(3.8^2) h = ?

Use the formula: h = vo*t - (1/2)gt^2 We know that vo = 41 g = 9.8 h = 0 (since it strikes the ground) 0 = 41t - (1/2)(9.8)t^2 Solve for t. One of the answers is t = 0, but this is the time before the release of the ball. Get the other value of t.
