A number cube is rolled and a coin is tossed. The number cube and the coin are fair. What is the pro

A number cube is rolled and a coin is tossed. The number cube and the coin are fair. What is the probability that the number rolled is greater than 3 and the coin toss is heads? Write your answer as a fraction in simplest form
Let's review the vitals of this question:
[LIST]
[*]The probability of heads on a fair coin is 1/2.
[*]On a fair die, greater than 3 means either 4, 5, or 6. Any die roll face is a 1/6 probability.
[*]So we have a combination of outcomes below:
[/LIST]
Outcomes
[LIST=1]
[*]Heads and 4
[*]Heads and 5
[*]Heads and 6
[/LIST]
For each of the outcomes, we assign a probability. Since the coin flip and die roll are independent, we multiply the probabilities:
[LIST=1]
[*]P(Heads and 4) = 1/2 * 1/6 = 1/12
[*]P(Heads and 5) = 1/2 * 1/6 = 1/12
[*]P(Heads and 6) = 1/2 * 1/6 = 1/12
[/LIST]
Since we want any of those events, we add all three probabilities
1/12 + 1/12 + 1/12 = 3/12

A spherical water tank holds 11,500ft^3 of water. What is the diameter?

A spherical water tank holds 11,500ft^3 of water. What is the diameter?
The tank holding amount is volume. And the volume of a sphere is:
V = (4pir^3)/3
We know that radius is 1/2 of diameter:
r =d/2
So we rewrite our volume function:
V = 4/3(pi(d/2)^3)
We're given V = 11,500 so we have:
4/3(pi(d/2)^3) = 11500
Multiply each side by 3/4
4/3(3/4)(pi(d/2)^3) = 11,500*3/4
Simplify:
pi(d/2)^3 = 8625
Since pi = 3.1415926359, we divide each side by pi:
(d/2)^3 = 8625/3.1415926359
(d/2)^3 = 2745.42
Take the cube root of each side:
d/2 = 14.0224
Multiply through by 2:
[B]d = 28.005[/B]

Volume of cube = s^3
Volume of cylinder = pir^2h
Volume of cylinder = pi(s/2)^2s
Volume of cylinder = pis^3/2

Prove that the difference of two consecutive cubes is never divisible by 3

Take two consecutive integers:
n, n + 1
The difference of their cubes is:
(n + 1)^3 - n^3
n^3 + 3n^2 + 3n + 1 - n^3
Cancel the n^3
3n^2 + 3n + 1
Factor out a 3 from the first 2 terms:
3(n^2 + n) + 1
The first two terms are always divisible by 3 but then the + 1 makes this expression not divisible by 3:
3(n^2 + n) + 1 = 1 (mod 3)

[*]Varies jointly or directly means we multiply
[*]Varies inversely means divide
[*]The cube of w means we raise w to the 3rd power: w^3

X varies directly with the cube root of y when x=1 y=27. Calculate y when x=4

X varies directly with the cube root of y when x=1 y=27. Calculate y when x=4
Varies directly means there is a constant k such that:
x = ky^(1/3)
When x = 1 and y = 27, we have:
27^1/3(k) = 1
3k = 1
To solve for k, we[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3k%3D1&pl=Solve'] type in our equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
k = 1/3
Now, the problem asks for y when x = 4. We use our variation equation above with k = 1/3 and x = 4:
4 = y^(1/3)/3
Cross multiply:
y^(1/3) = 4 * 3
y^(1/3) =12
Cube each side:
y^(1/3)^3 = 12^3
y = [B]1728[/B]

z is jointly proportional to the square of x and the cube of y

z is jointly proportional to the square of x and the cube of y
The square of x means we raise x to the power of 2:
x^2
The cube of y means we raise y to the power of 3:
y^3
The phrase [I]jointly proportional[/I] means we have a constant k such that:
[B]z = kx^2y^3[/B]
