A pot of soup, currently 66°C above room temperature, is left out to cool. If that temperature difference decreases by 10% per minute, then what will the difference be in 17 minutes?
We set up the temperature function T(m), where m is the number of minutes of cooling. With 10% = 0.1, we have:
T(m) = 66 * (1 - 0.10)^m
The problem asks for T(17) [U]and[/U] the difference temperature:
T(17) = 66 * 0.9^17
T(17) = 66 * 0.16677181699
T(17) = [B]11.01C[/B]
[B][/B]
[U]Calculate the difference in temperature[/U]
Difference = Starting Temperature - Ending Temperature
Difference = 66 - 11.01
Difference = 66 - 11.01 = [B]54.99 ~ 55[/B]

Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life, philosophical/religious facts,

Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )
can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??
if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?
that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
_______
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.
So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.
( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).
if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )
same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.
Why should you waste your time?
_______
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.

If I have a reading average of 2 hours 30 minutes 0 seconds per 93.25 pages, how long would it take me to read 58 pgs?
Set up a proportion, of reading time to pages where m is the number of minutes it takes you to read 58 pages.
2 hours and 30 minutes is:
60(2) + 30
120 + 30
150 minutes
Our proportion is:

If the speed of an aeroplane is reduced by 40km/hr, it takes 20 minutes more to cover 1200m. Find th

If the speed of an aeroplane is reduced by 40km/hr, it takes 20 minutes more to cover 1200m. Find the time taken by aeroplane to cover 1200m initially.
We know from the distance formula (d) using rate (r) and time (t) that:
d = rt
Regular speed:
1200 = rt
Divide each side by t, we get:
r = 1200/t
Reduced speed. 20 minutes = 60/20 = 1/3 of an hour. So we multiply 1,200 by 3
3600 = (r - 40)(t + 1/3)
If we multiply 3 by (t + 1/3), we get:
3t + 1
So we have:
3600 = (r - 40)(3t + 1)
Substitute r = 1200/t into the reduced speed equation:
3600 = (1200/t - 40)(3t + 1)
Multiply through and we get:
3600 = 3600 - 120t + 1200/t - 40
Subtract 3,600 from each side
3600 - 3600 = 3600 - 3600 - 120t + 1200/t - 40
The 3600's cancel, so we get:
- 120t + 1200/t - 40 = 0
Multiply each side by t:
-120t^2 - 40t + 1200 = 0
We've got a quadratic equation. To solve for t, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=-120t%5E2-40t%2B1200%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type this in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
t = -10/3 or t = 3. Since time [I]cannot[/I] be negative, our final answer is:

If you are running 6 miles per hour, then it takes you 10 minutes to run 1 mile. If you are running

If you are running 6 miles per hour, then it takes you 10 minutes to run 1 mile. If you are running 8 miles per hour, it takes you 7.5 minutes to run a mile. What does your speed have to be for your speed in miles per hour to be equal to your mile time in minutes?
From above, we have:
[LIST]
[*]6mph x 10 minutes = 1 mile
[*]8mph x 7.5 minutes = 1 mile
[/LIST]
Notice that mph x minutes = 60 since there are 60 minutes in 1 hour?
So we have x mph x y minutes = 60.
Since we want mph and y (minutes) = x (mph), we have
x^2 = 60
x = sqrt(60)
[B]x = 7.746 mph[/B]

In the year 1999, Hicham El Guerrouj of Morocco set a new world record when he ran a mile in 3 minutes 43.13 seconds. What was his speed in miles per hour? (Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.)
3 minutes = 60 seconds per minute = 180 seconds
180 seconds + 43.13 seconds = 223.13 seconds
223.13 seconds/3600 seconds per hour = 1 mile/n miles
Cross multiply:
223.13n = 3600
Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=223.13n%3D3600&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we get:

Isabel will run less than 36 minutes today. So far, she has run 22 minutes. What are the possible numbers of additional minutes she will run?
Set up our inequality. If she ran 22 minutes, we need to find an expression to find out the remaining minutes
x + 22 < 36
Subtract 22 from each side:
x < 14
Remember, she cannot run negative minutes, so our lower bound is 0, so we have:
[B]0 < x < 14

It takes 60 minutes for 7 people to paint 5 walls. How many minutes does it take 10 people to paint

It takes 60 minutes for 7 people to paint 5 walls. How many minutes does it take 10 people to paint 10 walls?
Rate * Time = Output
Let "Rate" (r) be the rate at which [B]one person[/B] works.
So we have:
7r * 60 = 5
Multiply through and simplify:
420r = 5
Divide each side by 5 to isolate r:
r = 1/84
So now we want to find out how many minutes it takes 10 people to paint 10 walls using this rate:
10rt = 10
With r = 1/84, we have:
10t/84 = 10
Cross multiply:
10t = 840
To solve for t, we t[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=10t%3D840&pl=Solve']ype this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:

It takes Spot 2 hours to paint a fence and Steven 4 hours to paint the same fence. If they work together, how long will it take them to paint the fence?
Spot paints 1/2 of a fence in an hour
Steven paints 1/4 of a fence in an hour
Together, in an hour, they paint 1/2 + 1/4 of a fence in an hour
1/2 = 2/4, so we have 2/4 + 1/4 = 3/4 of a fence in an hour
Meaning they take another 20 minutes to pain the last 1/4 of the fence
[B]1 hour + 20 minutes[/B] is the total time it takes

Math Written Assignment

Im sorta confused about this question?
He has decided to remove all the old sod (grass), bring in a new 4 inch layer of topsoil, install new in-ground sprinklers, and reseed the lawn. He seems to think that he'll be able to save money by hauling loads of topsoil from the store himself in his pickup truck, rather than paying for delivery, but I don't think he's right. You're going to help us settle this.
Here is (most of) the information you asked for:
[LIST]
[*]Is he redoing the whole yard or just the front?
He's redoing the whole yard
[*]How much topsoil does he need?
I'm not sure, you'll have to figure that out. Remember he's putting a new 4 inch layer down over all the area currently covered by grass in the overhead picture above.
[*]How big is the yard?
I'm not sure, but you can probably estimate it using the overhead picture.
[*]What kind of pickup truck does he drive?
A 2003 Ford F-150 XL.
[*]How much can the pickup carry?
The truck bed is 80 inches long, 69 inches wide, and 20 inches tall.
[*]How much is the delivery charge?
$30 per truckload on top of the soil cost. Each truckload can deliver up to 18 cubic yards.
[*]How much does the topsoil cost?
$18 per cubic yard (sold in 1/4 yard increments).
[*]How far is the soil store?
It is 9 miles away. It takes about 20 minutes to drive there.
[*]What gas mileage does the pickup truck get?
It averages 17 miles to the gallon.
[*]What is the current gas cost?
Assume it's $3.79/gallon.
[/LIST]
Using this information, figure out whether my neighbor will save money by picking up the soil himself. Use the results of your calculations to guide your decision: would you recommend that my neighbor pick up the soil himself, or pay for delivery?
Detail all your assumptions and calculations, and clearly write out your final conclusions.

Oscar makes a large purchase at Home Depot and plans to rent one of its trucks to take his supplies

Oscar makes a large purchase at Home Depot and plans to rent one of its trucks to take his supplies home. The most he wants to spend on the truck is $56.00. If Home Depot charges $17.00 for the first 75 minutes and $5.00 for each additional 15 min, for how long can Oscar keep the truck and remain within his budget?
Set up the cost equation C(m) where m is the number of minutes for rental:
C(m) = 17 * min(m, 75) + max(0, 5(m - 75))
If Oscar uses the first 75 minutes, he spends $17. So he's left with:
$56 - $17 = $38
$38 / $5 = 7 Remainder 3
We remove the remainder 3, since it's not a full 15 minute block. So Oscar can rent the truck for:
7 * 15 minute blocks = [B]105 minutes[/B]

Pat starts reading at 1pm. He reads 5 pages in 15 minutes. If pat reads until 2:45 PM how many pages has he read
From 1PM to 2:45 PM is 1 hour and 45 minutes. Since 1 hour is 60 minutes, Pat reads 105 minutes.
Calculate the 15 minute blocks:
Blocks = Total Minutes / 15
Blocks = 105/15
Blocks = 7
Pat reads 5 pages for every 15 minute block. So we have:
Total Pages Read = 5 pages * 7 blocks
Total Pages Read = [B]35[/B]

The world record for the mile in the year 1865 was held by Richard Webster of England when he completed a mile in 4 minutes and 36.5 seconds. The world record in 1999 was set by Hicham El Guerrouj when he ran a mile in 3 minutes and 43.13 seconds.
If both men ran the mile together, how many feet behind would Richard Webster be when Hichem El Guerrouj crossed the finish line?
Change times to seconds:
[LIST]
[*]4 minutes and 36.5 seconds = 4*60 + 36.5 = 240 + 36.5 = 276.5 seconds
[*]3 minute and 43.13 seconds = 3*60 + 43.13 = 180 + 43.13 = 223.13 seconds

Now, find the distance Richard Webster travelled in 3 minutes and 43.13 seconds which is when Hiram El Guerrouj crossed the finish line.
1 mile = 5280 feet:
Set up a proportion of distance in feet to seconds where n is the distance Richard Webster travelled
5280/276.5 = n/223.13

When a dog noticed a fox, they were 60 meters apart. The dog immediately started to chase the fox at a speed of 750 meters per minute. The fox started to run away at a speed of 720 meters per minute. How soon will the dog catch the fox?
The dog sits a position p.
Distance = Rate x Time
The dogs distance in minutes is D = 720t
The fox sits at position p + 60
Distance = Rate x Time
The fox's distance in minutes is D = 750t - 60 <-- Subtract 60 since the fox is already ahead 60 meters.
We want to know when their distance (location) is the same. So we set both distance equations equal to each other:
720t = 750t - 60

When the water is turned on, a bathtub will be filled in 12 minutes. When the drain is opened it takes 20 minutes for the tub to drain. If the water is turned on and the drain is left open, how long until the tub is filled?
In one hour, the faucet will fill 5 tubs since 12 * 5 = 60 minutes.
In one hour, the drain will empty 3 tubs since 20 * 3 = 60 minutes
