Draw 4 circles that make your venn diagram. Start in the middle and work your way out. That is place the 3 in the very center of the 4 connected circles : ) Remember that you will have the number 5 outside of the four circles but inside of your Universal set box : )

**maths**

Re-arrange for y=mx+b then look at the m value (the slope), re-write your equation with the new slope... which is 5/2 (when you re-arrange the equation). Then use y=(5/2)x + b and sub in your ordered pair (x,y) which is (4, -2)and solve for b : ) Then re-write the equation ...

**math**

It is in the real number system, as well as the rational number set (it is not irrational because it stops (terminates) at the 7.

**Math**

24*(1/4) = 6 So 24 - 6 = 18 18* (2/5) = then add that to the $6 he spent the first time : ) and you have your answer.

For #3 if you just count them... 1st oldest 2nd oldest 3 4 5 6 7 Niko (8th oldest, and 12th youngest) 11th youngest 10th 9th 8th 7th 6th 5th 4th 3rd 2nd first youngest... And count those lines you will see the number of students is not 21

**Math**

For #1 B is the correct answer :)

**math**

You could graph the circle and the line and SEE the point(s) of intersection. Or since the line is already re-arranged for y, sub that into the cirle equation and solve for x. And then solve for y : )

**Math**

Correct : ) Using the tangent ratio.

**Maths**

You could also look at it as a proportion.(cm/km) = (cm/km) (1cm/1km) = (3.4cm/x) Solve for x. Note: this would not be the most intuitive way... but it would get the question completed if you don't see an easier way.

**Science**

Do you recall your teacher saying something along the lines... "The velocity of an object is the rate of change of its position with respect to a frame of reference, and is a function of time. Velocity is equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion...

Did you use tan48 = x/4 ? and then solve for x.

**math**

60 +35+25+20 = 140 but your logic is good. And your answer of 60 for just Netflix is correct as well : )

**math**

One method is to use equivalent fractions until you find a difference of 36. For instance 4/10 = 8/20 and the difference between 20 and 8 is 12. 4/10=12/30 and the difference between 30 and 12 is 18. 4/10=16/40 and the difference is 24... etc

**math**

Make it into a proportion... percent is out of 100. So 56/x = 15.625/100 and solve for x

(2/5)x200=80 So the first charity got 80 200 - 80 = 120 which is left. 120x(1/3)=40 The second charity received 40 cans. so 120-40 = 80 cans left to give to the third home.
