Statistics
A local fire station receives an average of 0.5 rescue calls per day. Find the probability that on a randomly selected day, the fire station will receive fewer than two calls. (Round your answer to the nearest thousandth.)

Geometry
11. What is the bearing of the plane? 12. What is the smallest angle of the triangle? 13. What is the largest angle of the triangle? 14. What is the remaining angle of the triangle? 15. What is the ground speed of the plane? I am lost on these

Math
C(5) would be the cost to make 5 sailboats, so substitute 5 for 'x' (2 * 5) + 20 10 + 20 = 30; since the question says the cost is in thousands of dollars, then C(5) is how much it costs the company to make 5 sailboats, which is \$30,000 or \$6,000 / sailboat.

To find the product of two fractions, you simply multiply across top & bottom. But first, you can see that 12 and 15 have a common factor of 3. So, (11 / 15) * (12 / 7) then becomes: (11 / 5) * (4 * 7) Multiplying straight across, you get: (11 * 4) / (5 * 7) = 44 / 35

I don't know where 'bobpursley' learned his math, or why he keeps answering math questions on this site incorrectly, but here's how it's actually done. There are 60 minutes in an hour, so 55 minutes can be expressed, very simply, as 55 / 60 To reduce this f...

20% = 0.2 If his sticker collection, at the moment, has 1400 stickers, then 0.2 * 1400 = 280 stickers.

To find the coordinates of the lamp, you have the find the midpoint of the path. The path has two endings: one at (-25, 20) one at (40, 36) For the x-coordinate, add up all x-coordinates and divide them by 2 -- [(-25 + 40) / 2] = (15 / 2) = 7.5 For the y-coordinate, add up all...

Algebra
There are 2 halves in the course: 1st half has 120 points 2nd half has 140 points -- for a grand total of 260 points If a student earns 81% of the points in the 1st half, she earns 0.81 * 120 points -- 0.81 * 120 = 97.2 points If there are 260 total points in the class, and th...

If you're talking about the median, then you're missing a number in your list. Your list is: 1400, 1550, 1700, 2500, 7000 which has 5 numbers. The median (the middle number) would be the 3rd, which in this case is 1700. If you want the median to be [(1700 + 2500) / 2] ...

If both terms are equal, that is: x / 60 = 9 / 5 Then, x is to 9, as 60 is to 5. 60 = 5 * 12 so, x = 9 * 12 thus, x = 108.
