3 cases of fresh apples that cost $21.95 per case with 20% off and a 7.5% sales tax

3 cases of fresh apples that cost $21.95 per case with 20% off and a 7.5% sales tax
Figure out the total cost before the discount:
Total Cost before discount = Cases * Price per case
Total Cost before discount = 3 cases * $21.95 per case
Total Cost before discount = $65.85
Now, find the discounted value of the apples:
Discounted Apple Price = Total Cost before discount * (1 - discount percent)
Discounted ApplesPrice = $65.85 * (1 - 0.2) <-- 20% is the same as 0.2
Discounted ApplesPrice = $65.85 * 0.8
Discounted ApplesPrice = $52.68
Now, apply the sales tax to this discounted value to get the total bill:
Total Bill = Discounted Apple Price * (1 + tax rate)
Total Bill = $52.68 * (1 + .075) <-- 7.5% = 0.075
Total Bill = $52.68 * 1.075
Total Bill = [B]$56.63[/B]

20% tip:
19.50 * 1.2 = 23.4
3 friends each brought $8, so they have:
3 * 8 = $24
So the $24 [B]will cover both a 15% tip and a 20% tip[/B]

A 6000 seat theater has tickets for sale at $24 and $40. How many tickets should be sold at each price for a sellout performance to generate a total revenue of $188,800?
Let x be the number of $24 tickets, and y be the number of $40 tickets. We have:
[LIST=1]
[*]24x + 40y = 188,800
[*]x + y = 6,000
[*]Rearrange (2) to solve for x: x = 6000 - y
[*]Plug in (3) to (1):
[/LIST]
24(6000 - y) + 40y = 188800
144,000 - 24y + 40y = 188,800
16y + 144,000 = 188,800
Subtract 144,000 from each side:
16y = 44,800
Divide each side by 16
y = 2,800 ($40 tickets)
Plug this into (2)
x + 2,800 = 6000
Subtract 2,800 from each side:
x = 3,200 ($24 tickets)

A bag contains 19 balls numbered 1 through 19. What is the probability that a randomly selected ball

A bag contains 19 balls numbered 1 through 19. What is the probability that a randomly selected ball has an even number?
Even numbers in the bag are {2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18}
So we have 9 total even numbers.
Therefore, the probability of drawing an even number is [B]9/19[/B]

A bag contains 2 red marbles, 3 blue marbles, and 4 green marbles. What is the probability of choosi

A bag contains 2 red marbles, 3 blue marbles, and 4 green marbles. What is the probability of choosing a blue marble, replacing it, drawing a green marble, replacing it, and then drawing a red marble?
Calculate total marbles in the bag:
Total marbles in the bag = Red Marbles + Blue Marbles + Green Marbles
Total marbles in the bag = 2 + 3 + 4
Total marbles in the bag = 9
[U]First choice, blue marble[/U]
P(blue) = Total Blue Marbles / Total Marbles in the bag
P(blue) = 3/9
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=3%2F9&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']Using our fraction simplifier[/URL], we see:
P(blue) = 1/3
[U]Second choice, green marble with all the marbles back in the bag after replacement[/U]
P(green) = Total Green Marbles / Total Marbles in the bag
P(green) = 4/9
[U]Third choice, red marble with all the marbles back in the bag after replacement[/U]
P(red) = Total Red Marbles / Total Marbles in the bag
P(red) = 2/9
Since each event is independent, we multiply each probability:
P(blue, green, red) = P(blue) * P(green) * P(red)
P(blue, green, red) = 1/3 * 4/9 * 2/9
P(blue, green, red) = [B]8/243[/B]

A bag contains 3 black, 4 red, 3 yellow, and 2 green marbles. What is the probability of drawing a black and then a red marble out of the bag without replacing the black marble before drawing the red marble?
The phrase [U][B]without replacement[/B][/U] is a huge clue on this problem.
Take each draw and calculate the probability.
Draw 1: P(Drawing a red)
P(Drawing a red) = Total Red marbles n the jar / Total marbles in the jar
P(Drawing a red) = 4/12
4/12 simplifies to 1/3 using a common factor of 4:
P(Drawing a red) = 1/3
Draw 2: P(Drawing a black)
P(Drawing a black) = Total Black marbles in the jar / Total marbles in the jar
[I]We drew one red marble already. Without replacement means we do not put it back. Therefore, we have 12 - 1 = 11 marbles left in the jar.[/I]
P(Drawing a black) = 3/11
The question asks, what is the the following probability:
P(Drawing a Red, Drawing a Black)
Because each draw is [I][U]independent[/U], [/I]we multiply each draw probability together:
P(Drawing a Red, Black) = P(Drawing a Red) * P(Drawing a Black)
P(Drawing a Red, Black) = 1/3 * 3/11
P(Drawing a Red, Black) = [B]1/11[/B]

[*]The problem asks for the probability of (RR) [I]or[/I] (BB).
[*]It's worthy to note we are replacing the balls after each draw, which means we always have 7 to draw from
[/LIST]
Since each draw is independent, we take the product of each event for the total event probability.
P(RR) = 3/7 * 3/7 = 9/49
P(BB) = 4/7 * 4/7 = 16/49
We want to know P(RR) + P(BB)
P(RR) + P(BB) = 9/49 + 16/49 = 25/49

A bag contains 5 blue marbles, 6 red marbles, and 4 green marbles. You select one marble at random from the bag. What is P(blue)
P(blue) = Number of blue marbles / Total Marbles
P(blue) = 5 / (5 + 6 + 4)
P(blue) = 5/15

A bag contains 666 red balls, 444 green balls, and 333 blue balls. If we choose a ball, then another ball without putting the first one back in the bag, what is the probability that the first ball will be green and the second will be red?
[U]Calculate total number of balls to start:[/U]
Total Balls = Red Balls + Green Balls + Blue Balls
Total Balls = 666 + 444 + 333
Total Balls = 1,443
[U]Calculate the probability of drawing a green ball on the first pick:[/U]
P(Green) = Green Balls / Total Balls
P(Green) = 444/1443
P(Green) = 0.30769
[U]Calculate the probability of drawing a red ball on the second pick (without replacement):[/U]
Total Balls decrease by 1, since we do not replace. So Total Balls = 1,443 - 1 = 1,442
P(Red) = Red Balls / Total Balls
P(Red) = 666/1442
P(Red) = 0.46186
Now, we want the probability of Green, Red in that order.
Since each event is independent, we multiply the event probabilities
P(Green, Red) = P(Green) * P(Red)
P(Green, Red) = 0.30769 * 0.46186
P(Green, Red) = [B]0.14211[/B]

A bag contains tiles, 3 tiles are red. 6 tiles are green, and 3 tiles are blue. A tile will be randomly selected from the bag . What is the probability that the tile selected will be green
P(green) = Number of green tiles / Total Tiles
P(green) = 6 / (3 + 6 + 3)
P(green) = 6 / 12

P(Blue) = 5 / 10
We can [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/search.php?q=5%2F10&x=0&y=0']simplify this using our GCF calculator[/URL] and we get:

A carpet cleaner charges $75 to clean the first 180 sq ft of carpet. There is an additional charge

A carpet cleaner charges $75 to clean the first 180 sq ft of carpet. There is an additional charge of 25¢ per square foot for any footage that exceeds 180 sq ft and $1.30 per step for any carpeting on a staircase. A customers cleaning bill was $253.95. This included the cleaning of a staircase with 14 steps. In addition to the staircase, how many square feet of carpet did the customer have cleaned?
Calculate the cost of the staircase cleaning.
Staircase cost = $1.30 * steps
Staircase cost = $1.30 * 14
Staircase cost = $18.20
Subtract this from the cost of the total cleaning bill of $253.95. We do this to isolate the cost of the carpet.
Carpet cost = $253.95 - $18.20
Carpet cost = $235.75
Now, the remaining carpet cost can be written as:
75 + $0.25(s - 180) = $235.75 <-- were s is the total square foot of carpet cleaned
Multiply through and simplify:
75 + 0.25s - 45 = $235.75
Combine like terms:
0.25s + 30 = 235.75

A cashier has 44 bills, all of which are $10 or $20 bills. The total value of the money is $730. How many of each type of bill does the cashier have?
Let a be the amount of $10 bills and b be the amount of $20 bills. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + b = 44
[*]10a + 20b = 730
[/LIST]
We rearrange equation 1 in terms of a. We subtract b from each side and we get:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = 44 - b
[*]10a + 20b = 730
[/LIST]
Now we substitute equation (1) for a into equation (2):
10(44 - b) + 20b = 730
Multiply through to remove the parentheses:
440 - 10b + 20b = 730
Group like terms:
440 + 10b = 730
Now, to solve for b, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=440%2B10b%3D730&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
b = [B]29

To get a, we take b = 29 and substitute it into equation (1) above:
a = 44 - 29
a = [B]15
[/B]
So we have [B]15 ten-dollar bills[/B] and [B]29 twenty-dollar bills[/B]

a company has revenue given by R(x)=500x dollars and total cost given by C(x)=48,000 + 100x dollars, where x is the number of units produced and sold. How many units will give a profit
Profit P(x) is given by:
R(x) - C(x)
So we have:
P(x) = 500x - (100x + 48,000)
P(x) = 500x - 100x - 48,000
P(x) = 400x - 48,000
A profit is found when P(x) > 0, so we have:
400x - 48000 > 0

A company now has 4900 employees nationwide. It wishes to reduce the number of employees by 300 per year through retirements, until its total employment is 2560. How long will this take?
Figure out how many reductions are needed
4900 - 2560 = 2340
We want 300 per year for retirements, so let x equal how many years we need to get 2340 reductions.
300x = 2340
Divide each side by 300
x = 7.8 years.
If we want full years, we would do 8 full years

A daily pass costs $62. A season ski pass costs $450. The skier would have to rent skis with either pass for $30 per day. How many days would the skier have to go skiing in order to make the season pass less expensive than the daily passes?
Let d be the number of days the skier attends.
Calculate the daily cost:
Daily Total Cost = Daily Cost + Rental Cost
Daily Total Cost = 62d + 30d
Daily Total Cost = 92d
Calculate Season Cost:
Season Total Cost = Season Fee + Rental Cost
Season Total Cost = 450 + 30d
Set the daily total cost and season cost equal to each other:
450 + 30d = 92d
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=450%2B30d%3D92d&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get d = 7.258.
We round up to the next full day of [B]8[/B].
Now check our work:
Daily Total Cost for 8 days = 92(8) = 736
Season Cost for 8 days = 30(8) + 450 = 240 + 450 = 710.
Therefore, the skier needs to go at least [B]8 days[/B] to make the season cost less than the daily cot.

A desk drawer contains 10 blue pencils, 7 red pencils, and 8 green pencils. Without looking, you draw out a pencil and then draw out a second pencil without returning the first pencil. What is the probability that the first pencil and the second pencil are both green?
We are drawing without replacement. Take each draw probability:
[LIST=1]
[*]First draw, we have a total of 10 + 7 + 8 = 25 pencils to choose from. P(Green) = 8/25
[*]Next draw, we only have 24 total pencils, and 7 green pencils since we do not replace. Therefore, we have P(Green)= 7/24
[/LIST]
Since both events are independent, we have:
P(Green) * P(Green) = 8/25 * 7/24
P(Green) * P(Green) = 56/600
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/gcflcm.php?num1=56&num2=600&num3=&pl=GCF']GCF Calculator[/URL], we see the greatest common factor of 56 and 600 is 8. So we divide top and bottom of the fraction by 8.

We need to find the entrance fee per person. So subtract the cost of rides from the total spend:
Entrance Fees = Total Spend - Cost of Rides
Entrance Fees = 78 - 22
Entrance Fees = 56
[U]Now find the entrance fee per person:[/U]
Entrance Fee Per Person = Entrance Fees / Total People in the Family

We have:
[B]y = 21x + 5[/B]
Since the cost of each ticket is $21, we multiply this by x, the total number of people in the family.
We add 5 as the cost to park the car, which fits the entire family, and is a one time cost.

Convert all land portions to fractions or decimals. We will do fractions:
[LIST]
[*]1/3 for corn
[*][I]A quarter[/I] means 1/4 for lettuce
[*]12.5% is 12.5/100 or 1/8 for green beans

Now add all these up:
1/3 + 1/4 + 1/8
We need a common factor for 3, 4, and 8. Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/gcflcm.php?num1=3&num2=4&num3=8&pl=LCM']LCM Calculator[/URL], we get 24.
1/3 = 8/24
1/4 = 6/24
18 = 3/24
Add them all up:
(8 + 6 + 3)/24
17/24
This means 17/24 of the land is used for everything but wheat. Wheat occupies (24-17)/24 = 7/24 of the land.
We'll use a for the number of acres on the farm.

A first number plus twice a second number is 7. Twice the first number plus the second totals 23. Fi

A first number plus twice a second number is 7. Twice the first number plus the second totals 23. Find the numbers
Let the first number be a and the second number be b. We have:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + 2b = 7
[*]2a + b = 23
[/LIST]
Rearrange (1) into (3)
(3) a = 7 - 2b
Substitute (3) into (2):
2(7 - 2b) + b = 23
Multiply through:
14 - 4b + b = 23
Combine like terms:
14 - 3b = 23
Subtract 14 from each side:
-3b = 9
Divide each side by -3
[B]b = -3[/B]
Substitute this into (3)
a = 7 - 2b
a = 7 - 2(-3)
a = 7 + 6
[B]a = 13[/B]

A food truck sells salads for $6.50 each and drinks for $2.00 each. The food trucks revenue from selling a total of 209 salads and drinks in one day was $836.50. How many salads were sold that day?
Let the number of drinks be d. Let the number of salads be s. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]2d + 6.50s = 836.50
[*]d + s = 209
[/LIST]
We can use substitution to solve this system of equations quickly. The question asks for the number of salads (s). Therefore, we want all expressions in terms of s. Rearrange Equation 2 by subtracting s from both sides:
d + s - s = 209 - s
Cancel the s's, we get:
d = 209 - s
So we have the following system of equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]2d + 6.50s = 836.50
[*]d = 209 - s
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (2) into equation (1) for d:
2(209 - s) + 6.50s = 836.50
Multiply through to remove the parentheses:
418 - 2s + 6.50s = 836.50
To solve this equation for s, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=418-2s%2B6.50s%3D836.50&pl=Solve']type it into our search engine and we get[/URL]:

Rearrange equation (1) in terms of a:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = 20 - c
[*]15a + 10c = 225

Now that I have equation (1) in terms of a, we can substitute into equation (2) for a:
15(20 - c) + 10c = 225
Solve for [I]c[/I] in the equation 15(20 - c) + 10c = 225
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses
Simplify 15(20 - c): Distribute the 15 to each term in (20-c)
15 * 20 = (15 * 20) = 300
15 * -c = (15 * -1)c = -15c
Our Total expanded term is 300-15c
Our updated term to work with is 300 - 15c + 10c = 225
We first need to simplify the expression removing parentheses

[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 300 and 225. To do that, we subtract 300 from both sides
-5c + 300 - 300 = 225 - 300
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 300 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
-5c = -75

A mechanic charges $50 to inspect your heater, plus $80 per hour to work on it. You owe the mechanic a total of $310. Write and solve an equation to find the amount of time h (in hours) the mechanic works on your heater.
We calculate the cost function C(h) as:
C(h) = Hourly Rate * hours + Flat Fee Inspection
C(h) = 80h + 50 <-- this is our cost equation
Now, we want to solve for h when C(h) = 310
80h + 50 = 310
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=80h%2B50%3D310&pl=Solve']We type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:

A student and the marine biologist are together at t = 0. The student ascends more slowly than the m

A student and the marine biologist are together at t = 0. The student ascends more slowly than the marine biologist. Write an equation of a function that could represent the student's ascent. Please keep in mind the slope for the marine biologist is 12.
Slope means rise over run.
In this case, rise is the ascent distance and run is the time.
12 = 12/1, so for each second of time, the marine biologist ascends 12 units of distance
If the student ascends slower, than the total distance gets reduced by an unknown factor, let's call it c. So we have the student's ascent function as:

a textbook store sold a combined total of 296 sociology and history text books in a week. the number

a textbook store sold a combined total of 296 sociology and history text books in a week. the number of history textbooks sold was 42 less than the number of sociology textbooks sold. how many text books of each type were sold?
Let h = history book and s = sociology books. We have 2 equations:
(1) h = s - 42
(2) h + s = 296
Substitute (1) to (2)
s - 42 + s = 296
Combine variables
2s - 42 = 296
Add 42 to each side
2s = 338
Divide each side by 2
s = 169
So h = 169 - 42 = 127

A vendor sells h hot dogs and s sodas. If a hot dog costs twice as much as a soda, and if the vendor takes in a total of d dollars, how many cents does a soda cost?
Let the cost of the soda be p. So the cost of a hot dog is 2p.
The total cost of hot dogs:
2hp
The total cost of sodas:
ps
The total cost of both equals d. So we set the total cost of hots dogs plus sodas equal to d:
2hp + ps = d
We want to know the cost of a soda (p). So we have a literal equation. We factor out p from the left side:
p(2h + s) = d
Divide each side of the equation by (2h + s)
p(2h + s)/(2h + s) = d/(2h + s)
Cancel the (2h + s) on the left side, we get:
p = [B]d/(2h + s[/B])

A woman walked for 5 hours, first along a level road, then up a hill, and then she turned around and walked back to the starting point along the same path. She walks 4mph on level ground, 3 mph uphill, and 6 mph downhill. Find the distance she walked.
Hint: Think about d = rt, which means that t = d/r. Think about each section of her walk, what is the distance and the rate. You know that the total time is 5 hours, so you know the sum of the times from each section must be 5.
Let Level distance = L and hill distance = H. Add the times it took for each section of the walk:
L/4 + H /3 + H/6 + L/4 = 5

Aaron buys a bag of cookies that contains 8 chocolate chip cookies, 6 peanut butter cookies,7 sugar cookies and 6 oatmeal raisin cookies. What it’s the probability that Aaron randomly selects a peanut butter cookie from the bag, eats it,, then randomly selects another peanut butter cookie?
First draw out of the bag is a peanut butter cookie:
P(PB) = Total Peanut Butter Cookies / Total Cookies
P(PB) = 6/27
Second draw out of the bag is a peanut butter cookie, but we have one less since Aaron ate one:
P(PB) = Total Peanut Butter Cookies - 1 / Total Cookies - 1
P(PB) = (6 - 1)/(27 - 1)
P(PB) = 5/26
Now, since each event is independent, we multiply them to see the probability of choosing a peanut butter cookie, eating it, then reaching in and choosing another peanut butter cookie:
P(PB, PB) = 6/27 * 5/26

Adam has 20 sweets he eats a quarter of them how many does he have left?
A quarter means 1/4. There's 2 ways you can approach this problem.
[B][U]Approach #1:[/U][/B]
Adam eats a quarter, or 1/4 of the sweets. So he eats:
20 * 1/4 = 5
Remaining sweets = Total Apples - Eaten Apples
Remaining sweets = 0 - 5
Remaining sweets= 15
[U][B]Approach #2:[/B][/U]
If Adam eats 1/4 of the sweets, this means he has:
1 - 1/4 sweets remaining.
Since 1 equals 4/4, we have:
4/4 - 1/4 = 3/4
Therefore, he has 20 * 3/4 sweets remaining.
This is 60/4, or [B]15[/B]

Alice is a machinist in a shirt factory. For the first 180 shirts she is paid $2.20 and then $2.90 per garment thereafter. What are her gross wages for a week in which she produces 240 shirts?
Calculate commission on the first 180 shirts (Commission 1):
Commission 1 = Shirts (up to 180) * $2.20
Commission 1 = 180 * $2.20
Commission 1 = $396
Calculate commission on the rest of the shirts about 180 (Commission 2):
Commission 2 = Shirts Above 180 * $2.90
Commission 2 = (240 - 180) * $2.90
Commission 2 = 60 * $2.90

Amanda spent 2/5 of her time after school doing homework and ¼ of her remaining time riding her bike

Amanda spent 2/5 of her time after school doing homework and ¼ of her remaining time riding her bike. If she rode her bike for 45 minutes in a week, how much time did she devote to homework in the same week
If Amanda spent 2/5 of her time after school doing homework, she has 1 - 2/5 time left over.
We convert 1 to a fraction using a denominator of 5, we get:
5/5 - 2/5 = 3/5
And Amanda spent 1/4 of 3/5 of her time bike riding, which means she spent:
1(3)/4(5) = 3/20 of her time.
If the total time after school is t, we have:
3t/20 = 45

An elevator can hold less than 2700 pounds of extra weight. If an average person weighs 150 pounds, what is the maximum number of people (p) that can be on the elevator at one time?
Total weight = average weight per person * Number of people
Total weight = 150p
We know from the problem that:
150p < 2700
We want to solve this inequality for p. Divide each side of the inequality by 150:

An employee earns $7.00 an hour for the first 35 hours worked in a week and $10.50 for any hours over 35. One weeks paycheck (before deductions) was for $308.00. How many hours did the employee work?
Let's first check to see if the employee worked overtime:
Regular Hours: 35 * 7 = 245
Since the employee made $308, they worked overtime. Let's determine how much overtime money was made:
308 - 245 = 63
Now, to calculate the overtime hours, we divide overtime pay by overtime rate
63/10.50 = 6
Now figure out the total hours worked in the week:
Total Hours = Regular Pay Hours + Overtime Hours
Total Hours = 35 + 6
[B]Total Hours = 41[/B]

Ben has $4.50 in quarters(Q) and dimes(D). a)Write an equation expressing the total amount of money in terms of the number of quarters and dimes. b)Rearrange the equation to isolate for the number of dimes (D)
a) The equation is:
[B]0.1d + 0.25q = 4.5[/B]
b) Isolate the equation for d. We subtract 0.25q from each side of the equation:
0.1d + 0.25q - 0.25q = 4.5 - 0.25q
Cancel the 0.25q on the left side, and we get:
0.1d = 4.5 - 0.25q
Divide each side of the equation by 0.1 to isolate d:
0.1d/0.1 = (4.5 - 0.25q)/0.1

Clark wants to give some baseball cards to his friends. If he gives 6 cards to each of his friends, he will have 5 cards left. If he gives 8 cards to each of his friends, he will need 7 more cards. How many friends is the giving the cards to?
Let the number of friends Clark gives his cards to be f. Let the total amount of cards he gives out be n. We're given 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]6f + 5 = n
[*]8f - 7 = n
[/LIST]
Since both equations equal n, we set these equations equal to each other
6f + 5 = 8f - 7
To solve for f, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=6f%2B5%3D8f-7&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
f = [B]6

If the fries contain 15 grams of fat and the shake contains 9 grams of fat, how many burgers, at 17 grams of fat each, can Dan add to his fries and milkshake if he wants to keep the total fat content of his meal no greater than 69 grams?
His original meal is 1 fry and 1 shake. This contains 15 + 9 = 24 grams of fat.
To limit his meal to 69 grams of fat, he has 69 - 24 = 45 grams of fat left over.
Therefore, he can consume:
17b <= 45 where b is the number of burgers
Dividing by 17, we get b = 2.65. Since he does not want to go over 45, he can eat 2 burgers.

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.
im not talking these all things from my own.
___________
in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.
cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.
tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
___________________
if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )
5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, s.ex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

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.
im not talking these all things from my own.

How many dimes must be added to a bag of 200 nickels so that the average value of the coins in the bag is 8 cents?
200 nickels has a value of 200 * 0.05 = $10.
Average value of coins is $10/200 = 0.05
Set up our average equation, where we have total value divided by total coins:
(200 * 0.05 + 0.1d)/(200 + d) = 0.08
Cross multiply:
16 + 0.08d = 10 + 0.1d
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=16%2B0.08d%3D10%2B0.1d&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we get:

I invest $3000 at 5% interest a year. So far I have made $600 with simple interest. How many years have I been investing?
Simple interest is calculated using interest * principal.
We have 5% * 3000 = $150 interest per year
We take our $600 of total interest and divide it by our interest per year to get the total years:
$600 / $150 = [B]4 years[/B]

I only own blue blankets and red blankets. 8 out of every 15 blankets I have are red.

I only own blue blankets and red blankets. 8 out of every 15 blankets I have are red. If have i 45 blankets, how many are blue?
If 8 out of 15 blankets are red, then 15 - 8 = 7 are blue
So 7 out of every 15 blankets are blue.
Set up a proportion of blue blankets to total blankets where b is the number of blue blankets in 45 blankets
7/15 = b/45
Cross multiply:
If 2 proportions are equal, then we can do the following:
Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2
15b = 45 * 7
15b = 315
To solve for b, divide each side of the equation by 15:
15b/15 = 315/15
Cancel the 15's on the left side and we get:
b = [B]21[/B]

Lindsey took a total of 8 quizzes over the course of 2 weeks. After attending 5 weeks of school this quarter, how many quizzes will Lindsey have taken in total? Assume the relationship is directly proportional.
Since the relationship is directly proportional, set up a proportion of quizzes to weeks, where q is the number of quizzes Lindsey will take in 5 weeks:

Pleasantburg has a population growth model of P(t)=at2+bt+P0 where P0 is the initial population. Sup

Pleasantburg has a population growth model of P(t)=at^2+bt+P0 where P0 is the initial population. Suppose that the future population of Pleasantburg t years after January 1, 2012, is described by the quadratic model P(t)=0.7t^2+6t+15,000. In what month and year will the population reach 19,200?
Set P(t) = 19,200
0.7t^2+6t+15,000 = 19,200
Subtract 19,200 from each side:
0.7t^2+6t+4200 = 0
The Quadratic has irrational roots. So I set up a table below to run through the values. At t = 74, we pass 19,200. Which means we add 74 years to 2012: 2012 + 74 = [B]2086[/B]

a. What is the probability that you choose a red or even numbered ball?
b. What is the probability you choose a green ball or a ball numbered less than 5?
a. The phrase [I]or[/I] in probability means add. But we need to subtract even reds so we don't double count:
We have 18 total balls, so this is our denonminator for our fractions.
Red and Even balls are {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12}
Our probability is:
P(Red or Even) = P(Red) + P(Even) - P(Red and Even)
P(Red or Even) = 13/18 + 9/18 - 6/18

Savannah is a salesperson who sells computers at an electronics store. She makes a base pay of $90 e

Savannah is a salesperson who sells computers at an electronics store. She makes a base pay of $90 each day and is also paid a commission for each sale she makes. One day, Savannah sold 4 computers and was paid a total of $100. Write an equation for the function P(x), representing Savannah's total pay on a day on which she sells x computers.
If base pay is $90 per day, then the total commission Savannah made for selling 4 computers is:
Commission = Total Pay - Base Pay
Commission = 100 - 90
Commission = $10
Assuming the commission for each computer is equal, we need to find the commission per computer:
Commission per computer = Total Commission / Number of Computers Sold
Commission per computer = 10/4
Commission per computer = $2.50
Now, we build the Total pay function P(x):
Total Pay = Base Pay + Commission * Number of Computers sold
[B]P(x) = 90 + 2.5x[/B]

Blue Beads = 3(275)
Blue Beads = 825
Subtract off the beads Shanti used for the bracelet:
825 - 156 = [B]669[/B]

She bought 120 sodas for $1.25 each, 30 pizzas for $12.50 each and 120 packs of skittles for $2 each.
Total Cost = Soda Cost + Pizza Cost + Skittle Cost
Cost = Quantity * Price, so we have:
Total Cost = 120 * 1.25 + 20 * 12.50 + 120 * 2
Total Cost = 150 + 250 + 240
Total Cost = $[B]640[/B]

Six friends went out to dinner. Each person ordered the same dinner, which costs $15.85. The friends left a combined tip of $14. What was the total of the bill and tip?
When all six friends eat the same meal, we calculate the total meal bill before the tip:
Total meal bill = Cost per Meal * Number of Friends
Total meal bill = 15.85 * 6
Total meal bill = $95.10
Calculate the Total bill and Tip:
Total Bill and Tip = Total Meal Bill + Tip
Total Bill and Tip = $95.10 + $14

Suppose Briley has 10 coins in quarters and dimes and has a total of 1.45. How many of each coin doe

Suppose Briley has 10 coins in quarters and dimes and has a total of 1.45. How many of each coin does she have?
Set up two equations where d is the number of dimes and q is the number of quarters:
(1) d + q = 10
(2) 0.1d + 0.25q = 1.45
Rearrange (1) into (3) to solve for d
(3) d = 10 - q
Now plug (3) into (2)
0.1(10 - q) + 0.25q = 1.45
Multiply through:
1 - 0.1q + 0.25q = 1.45
Combine q terms
0.15q + 1 = 1.45
Subtract 1 from each side
0.15q = 0.45
Divide each side by 0.15
[B]q = 3[/B]
Plug our q = 3 value into (3)

The Lakewood library has $8,040 to buy science magazines. If each magazine costs $3, how many magazines will the library be able to buy?
Let number of magazines be m. We know that:
Cost per magazine * m = Total Cost
We're given Total Cost = 8040 and Cost per magazine = 3, so we have
3m = 8040
To solve this equation for m, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3m%3D8040&pl=Solve']type it in our math engine[/URL] and we get:

The mean age of 10 women in an office is 30 years old. The mean age of 10 men in an office is 29 yea

The mean age of 10 women in an office is 30 years old. The mean age of 10 men in an office is 29 years old. What is the mean age (nearest year) of all the people in the office?
Mean is another word for [U]average[/U].
Mean age of women = Sum of all ages women / number of women
We're told mean age of women is 30, so we have:
Sum of all ages women / 10 = 30
Cross multiply, and we get:
Sum of all ages of women = 30 * 10
Sum of all ages of women = 300
Mean age of men = Sum of all ages men / number of men
We're told mean age of men is 29, so we have:
Sum of all ages men / 10 = 29
Cross multiply, and we get:
Sum of all ages of men = 29 * 10
Sum of all ages of men = 290
[U]Calculate mean age (nearest year) of all the people in the office:[/U]
mean age of all the people in the office = Sum of all ages of people in the office (men and women) / Total number of people in the office
mean age of all the people in the office = (300 + 290) / (10 + 10)
mean age of all the people in the office = 590 / 20
mean age of all the people in the office = 29.5
The question asks for nearest year. Since this is a decimal, we round down to either 29 or up to 30.
Because the decimal is greater or equal to 0.5 (halfway), we round [U]up[/U] to [B]30[/B]

The mean age of 5 people in a room is 38 years. A person enters the room. The mean age is now 39. What is the age of the person who entered the room?
The mean formulas is denoted as:
Mean = Sum of Ages / Total People
We're given Mean = 38 and Total People = 5, so we plug in our numbers:
28 = Sum of Ages / 5
Cross multiply, and we get:
Sum of Ages = 28 * 5
Sum of Ages = 140
One more person enters the room. The mean age is now 39. Set up our Mean formula:
Mean = Sum of Ages / Total People
With a new Mean of 39 and (5 + 1) = 6 people, we have:
39 = Sum of Ages / 6
But the new sum of Ages is the old sum of ages for 5 people plus the new age (a):
Sum of Ages = 140 + a
So we have:
29 = (140 + a)/6
Cross multiply:
140 + a = 29 * 6
140 + a = 174
To solve for a, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=140%2Ba%3D174&pl=Solve']we type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
a = [B]34[/B]

The mean height of a class of 20 children is 1.27 the mean height of 12 boys in the class is 1.29 what is the mean height of the girls in the class?
The mean of sums is the sum of means. So we have:
Total Height / 20 = 1.27
Cross multiplying, we get:
Total Height = 20 * 1.27
Total Height = 25.4
Boys Height / 12 = 1.29
Cross multiplying, we get:
Boys Height = 12 * 1.29
Boys Height = 15.48
The Problem asks for mean height for girls. The formula is:
Girls Height / # of Girls = Mean of Girls Height
# of Girls = Total children - # of boys
# of Girls = 20 - 12
# of Girls = 8
Girls Height = Total Height - Boys Height
Girls Height = 25.4 - 15.48
Girls Height = 9.92
Plugging this into the Mean of girls height, we get:
9.92 /8 = [B]1.24[/B]

[*]Draw 2: 5/7
[*]Draw 3: 4/6
[*]Draw 4: 3/5
[*]Draw 5: 2/4

The Palafoxes make $3,840 a month. They spend $1,600 for rent. What fraction of their income goes to rent?
Rent Payment Fraction = Rent Payment / Total Income
Rent Payment Fraction = 1600 / 3840
Our greatest common factor of 1600 and 3840 is 320.
So if we divide 1600 and 3840 by 320, we get:
Rent Payment Fraction = [B]5/12

[U]Calculate the number of pieces in the 3rd container:[/U]
Pieces in container 3 = Total Puzzle Pieces - Pieces in container 2 - Pieces in container 1
Pieces in container 3 = 500 - 220 - 180
Pieces in container 3 = 100
Calculate the percentage of pieces in the 3rd container:
Percentage of pieces in container 3 = 100% * Pieces in container 3 / Total puzzle pieces
Percentage of pieces in container 3 = 100% * 100 / 500
Percentage of pieces in container 3 = 100% * 0.2
Percentage of pieces in container 3 = [B]20%[/B]

The sales tax rate in a city is 7.27%. How much sales tax is charged on a purchase of 5 headphones at $47.44 each? What is the total price?
[U]First, calculate the pre-tax price:[/U]
Pre-tax price = Price per headphone * Number of Headphones
Pre-tax price = $47.44 * 5
Pre-tax price = $237.20
Now calculate the tax amount:
Tax Amount = Pre-Tax Price * (Tax Rate / 100)
Tax Amount = $237.20 * 7.27/100
Tax Amount = $237.20 * 0.0727
Tax Amount = [B]$17.24
[/B]
Calculate the total price:
Total Price = Pre-Tax price + Tax Amount
Total Price = $237.20 + $17.24
Total Price = [B]$254.44[/B]

The volleyball team and the wrestling team at Clarksville High School are having a joint car wash t

The volleyball team and the wrestling team at Clarksville High School are having a joint car wash today, and they are splitting the revenues. The volleyball team gets $4 per car. In addition, they have already brought in $81 from past fundraisers. The wrestling team has raised $85 in the past, and they are making $2 per car today. After washing a certain number of cars together, each team will have raised the same amount in total. What will that total be? How many cars will that take?
Set up the earnings equation for the volleyball team where w is the number of cars washed:
E = Price per cars washed * w + past fundraisers
E = 4w + 81
Set up the earnings equation for the wrestling team where w is the number of cars washed:
E = Price per cars washed * w + past fundraisers
E = 2w + 85
If the raised the same amount in total, set both earnings equations equal to each other:
4w + 81 = 2w + 85
Solve for [I]w[/I] in the equation 4w + 81 = 2w + 85
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group variables:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our variables 4w and 2w. To do that, we subtract 2w from both sides
4w + 81 - 2w = 2w + 85 - 2w

2w + 81 = 85
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 81 and 85. To do that, we subtract 81 from both sides
2w + 81 - 81 = 85 - 81
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 81 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
2w = 4
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by 2[/B][/SIZE]

There is a bag filled with 5 blue, 6 red and 2 green marbles. A marble is taken at random from the bag, the colour is noted and then it is replaced. Another marble is taken at random. What is the probability of getting exactly 1 blue?
Find the total number of marbles in the bag:
Total marbles = 5 blue + 6 red + 2 green
Total marbles = 13
The problem asks for exactly one blue in 2 draws [I]with replacement[/I]. Which means you could draw as follows:
Blue, Not Blue
Not Blue, Blue
The probability of drawing a blue is 5/13, since we replace the marbles in the bag each time.
The probability of not drawing a blue is (6 + 2)/13 = 8/13
And since each of the 2 draws are independent of each other, we multiply the probability of each draw:
Blue, Not Blue = 5/13 * 8/13 =40/169
Not Blue, Blue = 8/13 * 5/13 = 40/169
We add both probabilities since they both count under our scenario:
40/169 + 40/169 = 80/169
Checking our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=80%2F169&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']fraction simplification calculator[/URL], we see you cannot simplify this fraction anymore.

There were 286,200 graphic designer jobs in a country in 2010. It has been projected that there will be 312,500 graphic designer jobs in 2020. (a) Using the data, find the number of graphic designer jobs as a linear function of the year.
[B][U]Figure out the linear change from 2010 to 2020[/U][/B]
Number of years = 2020 - 2010
Number of years = 10
[B][U]Figure out the number of graphic designer job increases:[/U][/B]
Number of graphic designer job increases = 312,500 - 286,200
Number of graphic designer job increases = 26,300
[B][U]Figure out the number of graphic designer jobs added per year[/U][/B]
Graphic designer jobs added per year = Total Number of Graphic Designer jobs added / Number of Years
Graphic designer jobs added per year = 26,300 / 10

Three people went to lunch and bought a large meal which they all split. The total cost, including tip, was $30. Each person paid $10 to the waitress and started to leave the restaurant. As they left, the waitress came running up to them with five dollars saying that she made a mistake and that the meal and tip should have cost only $25.
The waitress then gave each person one dollar, but didn't know how to split the remaining two dollars. They told her to keep the extra two dollars as an additional tip.
When the people started talking about what had just happened, they started getting confused. They had each paid $10 for the meal and received one dollar back, so they each really paid $9 for the meal for a total of $27. Add the two dollars of extra tip and the total is $29. Where did the extra one dollar go?
[B]The missing dollar is not really missing. The cost of the meal is really $27. The $25 plus the extra two dollar tip was given to the waitress -- $27
What we have is the cost ($27) plus the refund ($3) = $30.
The $30 that was originally paid is accounted for as follows:
Restaurant + regular waitress tip: $25
Three people: $3 (refund)
Waitress: $2 (extra tip)
$25 + $3 + $2 = $30[/B]

Tim caught 6 ladybugs.
Ali caught 7 and Jon caught 5.
The children put some of their ladybugs in a big jar.
The jar then had 8 ladybugs.
How many ladybugs were not placed in the jar?
Add up the total ladybugs caught:
Total ladybugs caught = Tim's ladybugs + Ali's ladybugs + Jon's ladybugs
Total ladybugs caught = 6 + 7 + 5
Total ladybugs caught = 18
If the jar has 8 ladybugs, then the amount not in the jar is:
Amount of ladybugs not in the jar = Total ladybugs caught - Amount of ladybugs in the jar
Amount of ladybugs not in the jar = 18 - 8
Amount of ladybugs not in the jar = [B]10[/B]

To be a member of world fitness gym, it costs $60 flat fee and $30 per month. Maria has paid a total of $210 for her gym membership so far. How long has Maria been a member to the gym?
The cost function C(m) where m is the number of months for the gym membership is:
C(m) = 30m + 60
We're given that C(m) = 210 for Maria. We want to know the number of months (m) that Maria has been a member.
With C(m) = 210, we have:

two mechanics worked on a car. the first mechanic worked for 10 hours, and the second mechanic worked for 5 hours. together they charged a total of 1225. what was the rate charged per hour by each mechanic if the sum of the two rates was 170 per hour?
Set up two equations:
(1) 10x + 5y = 1225
(2) x + y = 170
Rearrange (2)
x = 170 - y
Substitute that into (1)
10(170 - y) + 5y = 1225
1700 - 10y + 5y = 1225
1700 - 5y = 1225
Move 5y to the other side
5y + 1225 = 1700
Subtract 1225 from each side
5y =475
Divide each side by 5
[B]y = 95[/B]
Which means x = 170 - 95, [B]x = 75[/B]

[*]x + y = 44 <-- Total means a sum
[*]x - y = 6
[/LIST]
Add the two equations together:
(x + x) + (y - y) = 44 + 6
Cancelling the y terms, we have:
2x = 50
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2x%3D50&pl=Solve']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get:
[B]x = 25

Let the first number be x. Let the second number be y. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x + y = 12

[/LIST]
Since we have y coefficients of (-1 and 1) that cancel, we add the two equations together:
(x + x) + (y - y) = 12 + 20
The y terms cancel, so we have:
2x = 32
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=2x%3D32&pl=Solve']Type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
x = [B]16[/B]

Youre setting sales goals for next month. You base your goals on previous average sales. The actual sales for the same month for the last four years have been 24 units, 30 units, 23 units, and 27 units. What is the average number of units you can expect to sell next month?
Find the average sales for the last four years:
Average Sales = Total Sales / 4
Average Sales = (24 + 30 + 23 + 27) / 4
Average Sales = 104 / 4
Average Sales = [B]26 units[/B]

Zombies are doubling every 2 days. If two people are turned into zombies today, how long will it take for the population of about 600,000 to turn into zombies?
Let d = every 2 days. We set up the exponential equation
2 * 2^d = 600,000
Divide each side by 2:
2^d = 300000
To solve this equation for d, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/natlog.php?num=2%5Ed%3D300000&pl=Calculate']type it in our math engine[/URL] and we get
d = 18.19 (2 day periods)
18.19 * days per period = 36.38 total days
Most problems like this ask you to round to full days, so we round up to [B]37 days[/B].
