Let n = cost of refreshments for 26 people. We can do ratio and proportion here. For every 18 people, the cost of refreshments is $45, while for every 26 people, the cost of refreshments is $ n. Thus, 18 / 45 = 26 / n We cross-multiply: 18n = 45 * 26 18n = 1170 Divide both ...

The pressure of a gas varies directly as its temperature: P = kT Note that the temperature must be absolute (in Kelvin units). To convert, just add 273 to the degree Celsius. Substituting the given, 200 lb/in^2 = k (65.5 + 273) k = 200 / 338.5 k = 0.5908 Now that we know the k...
