original fraction : x/y new fraction : (.5x)/(.75y) = (2/3) (x/y) so the new fraction is 2/3 of the old one, thus it was decreased by 1/3

According to your wording: - you wanted the percentage increase , so my answer is correct 3.5/.432 = 8.102 so the new price is 810% of the old one, but the increase is 710% e.g. suppose the cost of a coat went from $100 to $120 so it increased by 120%, but the percentage ...

number of dozen in the bucket = 450/12 = 37.5 so cost price per dozen = 16.20/37.5 = .432 So they bought them at $ 0.432 per dozen and sold them at $3.50 per dozen percentage increase = 3.5/.432 - 1 = 7.102 or 710%

square both sides cos^2 x + 2sinxcosx + sin^2 x = 1 1 + 2sinxcosx = 1 sin (2x) = 0 2x = 0 or 2x = π or 2x = 2π x = 0, x = π/2, x = π the period of sin 2x is π, so adding multiples of π will yield more answers so in the domain 0 < x < 2π...

Remember that for each chord , a perpendicular from the centre will right-bisect the chord so if you let the height to the shorter chord be h1, and the height form the centre to the longer chord be h2 you have two right-angled triangles, the first one sides 6, h1, and ...

The mathematical probability of rolling a 5 on a die is 1/6 so the number of times you would get a 5 in 300 rolls = (1/6)(300) = 50 so your "experimental" probability had to be different from the mathematical one. And you didn't state the experiment, so I can'...

For days ???? since the x-intercepts of a function are the same as the roots of the corresponding equation x=7 ----> a factor of (x-7) x=-2 ---> a factor of (x+2) so f(x) = a(x-7)(x+2) we are told that (0,5) lies on it, so 5 = a(-7)(2) a = -5/14 f(x) = (-5/14)(x-7)(x+2) ...
