A roof drops 4 feet for every 12 feet forward. Determine the slope of the roof.
Slope = Rise or Drop / Run
Slope = 4/12
We can simplify this fraction. We [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=4%2F12&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']type 4/12 into our search engine[/URL] and get:
Slope. = [B]1/3[/B]

How many palindromes are between 700 and 800?

How many palindromes are between 700 and 800?
Numeric palindromes are numbers which read the same backwards and forwards. In this case, the number has to start and end with 7.

Kim, Jenny, and Wendy are basketball players. Each plays a different position (guard, forward, and center) and wears a different number (30, 32, and 35).Kim and number 30 are too small to play center. Number 35 is the center. Neither Kim nor Wendy is the forward. Who plays guard, and what uniform number does she wear?
[LIST]
[*]Kim does not play center
[*]Kim does not play forward
[*]Which means [B]Kim is the guard[/B]
[*]Since Kim is not number 30, and she cannot be number 35 since Number 35 is the center, the only number left is [B]Number 32[/B]
[/LIST]
[B]Kim is the guard with number 32[/B]

Lanette walked forward 9 steps, backward 15 steps, forward 7 steps, and backward 8 steps. How many s

Lanette walked forward 9 steps, backward 15 steps, forward 7 steps, and backward 8 steps. How many steps is lanette from where she started?
We use (+) for forward steps and (-) for backward steps
[LIST]
[*]Forward 9, backward 15 is: +9 - 15 = -6
[*]Forward 7 steps is: -6 + 7 = +1
[*]Backward 8 steps = +1 - 8 = -7
[/LIST]
Since negative is backward and positive is forward, we see Lanette is [B]7 steps backwards [/B]from her starting point.
