a carnival charges $6 admission and $2.50 per ride. You have $50 to spend at the carnival. Which of the following inequalities represents the situation if r is the number of rides?
We set up our inequality using less than or equal to, since our cash is capped at $50. We use S for our :
Cost per ride * r + Admission <= 50
Plugging in our numbers, we get:
2.50r + 6 <= 50

a class has 24 people and 1/6 of them have blue eues. what fraction of the class has blue eyes, using 24 as the denominator
Blue eyes = 1/6 * 24

A company has 12,600 employees. Of these, 1/4 drive alone to work, 1/6 car pool, 1/8 use public transportation, 1/9 cycle, and the remainder use other methods of transportation. How many employees use each method of transportation?
Find the remainder fraction:
Remainder = 1 - (1/4 + 1/6 + 1/8 + 1/9)
The least common multiple of 4, 6, 8, 9 is 72. So we divide 72 by each fraction denominator to get our multiplier:
1/4 = 18/72
1/6 = 12/72
1/8 = 9/72
1/9 = 8/72
Add those all up:
(18 + 12 + 9 + 8)/72
47/72
Now subtract the other methods out from 1 to get the remainder of who use other methods:
Remainder = 1 - 47/72
Since 1 = 72/72, we have:
(72 - 47)/72

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.

A fair die means all faces have an equal probability of 1/6
P(3) = 1/6
P(6) = 1/6
P(3 or 6) = P(3) + P(6)
P(3 or 6) = 1/6 + 1/6
P(3 or 6) = 2/6

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

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

A fraction has a value of 3/4. If 7 is added to the numerator, the resulting fraction is equal to the reciprocal of the original fraction. Find the original fraction.
Let the fraction be x/y. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x/y = 3/4
[*](x + 7)/y = 4/3. [I](The reciprocal of 3/4 is found by 1/(3/4)[/I]
[/LIST]
Cross multiply equation 1 and equation 2:
[LIST=1]
[*]4x = 3y
[*]3(x + 7) = 4y
[/LIST]
Simplifying, we get:
[LIST=1]
[*]4x = 3y
[*]3x + 21 = 4y
[/LIST]
If we divide equation 1 by 4, we get:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = 3y/4
[*]3x + 21 = 4y
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for x:
3(3y/4) + 21 = 4y
9y/4 + 21 = 4y
Multiply the equation by 4 on both sides to eliminate the denominator:
9y + 84 = 16y
To solve this equation for y, we type it in our math engine and we get:
y = [B]12
[/B]
We then substitute y = 12 into equation 1 above:
x = 3 * 12/4
x = 36/4
x = [B]9
[/B]
So our original fraction x/y = [B]9/12[/B]

A number multiplied by 6 and divided by 5 give four more than a number?

A number multiplied by 6 and divided by 5 give four more than a number?
A number is represented by an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
Multiply by 6:
6x
Divide by 5
6x/5
The word "gives" means equals, so we set this equal to 4 more than a number, which is x + 4.
6x/5 = x + 4
Now, multiply each side of the equation by 5, to eliminate the fraction on the left hand side:

Using substitution, we substitute equaiton (1) into equation (2) for s:
f - f/4 = 30
To remove the denominator/fraction, we multiply both sides of the equation by 4:

Arthur had $90. He spent $40 and gave $20 to his brother. What fraction of Arthur's money is left?
Arthur starts with $90.
He gives away $40, so now he has $90 - $40 = $50.
Next, he gives $20 to his brother, so now he has $50 - $20 = $30.
So Arthur has 30/90 left.

Assuming a standard 52-card deck, what's the probability of dealing three eights in a row when the cards are returned and the deck is shuffled between each draw?

At the end of the week, Francesca had a third of her babysitting money left after spending $14.65 on a movie and popcorn and another $1.35 on a pen. How much did she earn babysitting?
Let the original amount of money earned for babysitting be b. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]Start with b
[*]Spending 14.65 for a movie means we subtract 14.65 from b: b - 14.65
[*]Spending 1.35 on a pen means we subtract another 1.35 from step 2: b - 14.65 - 1.35
[*]Francesca has a third of her money left. So we set step 3 equal to 1/3 of b
[/LIST]
b - 14.65 - 1.35 = b/3
Multiply each side of the equation by 3 to remove the fraction
3(b - 14.65 - 1.35) = 3b/3
3b - 43.95 - 4.05 = b

Explain the steps you would take to find an equation for the line perpendicular to 4x - 5y = 20 and sharing the same y-intercept
Get this in slope-intercept form by adding 5y to each side:
4x - 5y + 5y = 5y + 20
Cancel the 5y's on the left side and we get:
5y + 20 = 4x
Subtract 20 from each side
5y + 20 - 20 = 4x - 20
Cancel the 20's on the left side and we get:
5y = 4x - 20
Divide each side by 5:
5y/5 = 4x/5 - 4
y = 4x/5 - 4
So we have a slope of 4/5
to find our y-intercept, we set x = 0:
y = 4(0)/5 - 4
y = 0 - 4
y = -4
If we want a line perpendicular to the line above, our slope will be the negative reciprocal:
The reciprocal of 4/5 is found by flipping the fraction making the numerator the denominator and the denominator the numerator:
m = 5/4
Next, we multiply this by -1:
-5/4
So our slope-intercept of the perpendicular line with the same y-intercept is:
[B]y = -5x/4 - 4[/B]

If 2 is added to the numerator and denominator it becomes 9/10 and if 3 is subtracted from the numer

If 2 is added to the numerator and denominator it becomes 9/10 and if 3 is subtracted from the numerator and denominator it become 4/5. Find the fractions.
Convert 2 to a fraction with a denominator of 10:
20/2 = 10, so we multiply 2 by 10/10:
2*10/10 = 20/10
Add 2 to the numerator and denominator:
(n + 2)/(d + 2) = 9/10
Cross multiply and simplify:
10(n + 2) = 9(d + 2)
10n + 20 = 9d + 18
Move constants to right side by subtracting 20 from each side and subtracting 9d:
10n - 9d = -2
Subtract 3 from the numerator and denominator:
(n - 3)/(d - 3) = 4/5
Cross multiply and simplify:
5(n - 3) = 4(d - 3)
5n - 15 = 4d - 12
Move constants to right side by adding 15 to each side and subtracting 4d:
5n - 4d = 3
Build our system of equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]10n - 9d = -2
[*]5n - 4d = 3
[/LIST]
Multiply equation (2) by -2:
[LIST=1]
[*]10n - 9d = -2
[*]-10n + 8d = -6
[/LIST]
Now add equation (1) to equation (2)
(10 -10)n (-9 + 8)d = -2 - 6
The n's cancel, so we have:
-d = -8
Multiply through by -1:
d = 8
Now bring back our first equation from before, and plug in d = 8 into it to solve for n:
10n - 9d = -2
10n - 9(8) = -2
10n - 72 = -2
To solve for n, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=10n-72%3D-2&pl=Solve']plug this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
n = 7
So our fraction, n/d = [B]7/8[/B]

Using another rule of exponents, we rewrite this fraction as:
2^(3x -y)
We're given 3x - y = 12, so we have:

Notebooks cost $1.39 each. What are the possible numbers of notebooks that can be purchased with $10

Notebooks cost $1.39 each. What are the possible numbers of notebooks that can be purchased with $10?
Let n be the number of notebooks you can purchase. We have the following inequality:
1.39n <= 10
Divide each side by 1.39
n <= 7.194
We want whole notebooks, we cannot buy fractions of notebooks, so we have:
n <= 7
The question asks for the possible numbers of notebooks we can buy. This implies we buy at least 1, but our inequality says not more than 7. So our number set is:

Let d be the denominator.
We're given 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]n = d - 5
[*](n + 1)/(d + 1) = 2/3
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for n:
(d - 5 + 1) / (d + 1) = 2/3
(d - 4) / (d + 1) = 2/3
Cross multiply:

Solve mgh=1/2mv^2+1/2(2/5)mr^2(v^2/r^2) for v

Solve mgh=1/2mv^2+1/2(2/5)mr^2(v^2/r^2) for v
1/2(2/5) = 1/5 since the 2's cancel
r^2/r^2 = 1
So we simplify, and get:
mgh=1/2mv^2+1/5(mv^2) for v
Divide each side by m, so m's cancel in each term on the left and right side:
gh = 1/2v^2 + 1/5(v^2)
Combine like terms for v^2 on the right side:
1/2 + 1/5 = 7/10 from our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1%2F2&frac2=1%2F5&pl=Add']fraction calculator[/URL]
So we have:
gh = 7v^2/10
Multiply each side by 10:
10gh = 7v^2
Now divide each side by 7
10gh/7 = v^2
Take the square root of each side:
[B]v = sqrt(10gh/7)[/B]

There are 5 orange books, 12 black books, and 8 tan books on Mr. Johnsons bookshelf. Calculate the probability of randomly selecting a black book and then a tan book without replacement. Write your answer as a percent.
P(black book first draw)
P(black book first draw) = 12 black / (5 orange + 12 black + 8 tan)
P(black book first draw) = 12 / 25
P(tan book second draw)
P(tan book second draw) = 8 tan / (5 orange + 11 black + 8 tan) <-- 11 black because we already drew one black
P(tan book second draw) = 8 / 24
Using our fraction reduction calculator, this simplifies to 1/3
Since each draw is independent, we multiply both probabilities:
P(black book first draw, tan book second draw) = 12/25 * 1/3
P(black book first draw, tan book second draw) = 12/75
P(black book first draw, tan book second draw) = [B]16%[/B]

There are 50 pairs of pants. One-half of the pants are black. One-fifth of the pants are tan. How many pairs of pants are not black or tan.
First, determine what fraction of pants are black and tan:
1/2 + 1/5
Using our [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1%2F2&frac2=1%2F5&pl=Add']fraction addition calculator[/URL], we get 7/10.
So the rest of the pants are 1 - 7/10.
1 can be written as 10/10.
So we have 10/10 - 7/10 = 3/10
3/10 * 50 = 150/10 = [B]15[/B]

There is a bag filled with 3 blue, 4 red and 5 green marbles. A marble is taken at random from the bag, the colour is noted and then it is not replaced. Another marble is taken at random. What is the probability of getting exactly 1 green?
Calculate Total marbles
Total marbles = Blue + Red + Green
Total marbles = 3 + 4 + 5
Total marbles = 12
Probability of a green = 5/12
Probability of not green = 1 - 5/12 = 7/12
To get exactly one green in two draws, we either get a green, not green, or a not green, green
[U]First Draw Green, Second Draw Not Green[/U]
[LIST]
[*]1st draw: Probability of a green = 5/12
[*]2nd draw: Probability of not green = 7/11 <-- 11 since we did not replace the first marble
[*]To get the probability of the event, since each draw is independent, we multiply both probabilities

[*]Probability of the event is (7/12) * (5/11) = 35/132
[/LIST]
To get the probability of exactly one green, we add both of the events:
First Draw Green, Second Draw Not Green + First Draw Not Green, Second Draw Not Green
35/132 + 35/132 = 70/132

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.
So our probability stated in terms of a fraction is 80/169

There were 500 balloons in 2 buckets. Rahul bursted 350 balloons of 1st bucket and Raghav bursted 4 by 5 of the balloons of 2nd bucket. Who bursted more balloons and how many did Raghav burst?
If Rahul bursted 350 balloons, then we have:
Remaining Balloons = 500 - 350
Remaining Balloons = 150
Raghav bursted [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=150&frac2=4/5&pl=Multiply']4/5 * 150[/URL] = [B]120[/B]

True or False
(a) The normal distribution curve is always symmetric to its mean.
(b) If the variance from a data set is zero, then all the observations in this data set are identical.
(c) P(A AND A^{c})=1, where A^{c} is the complement of A.
(d) In a hypothesis testing, if the p-value is less than the significance level ?, we do not have sufficient evidence to reject the null hypothesis.
(e) The volume of milk in a jug of milk is 128 oz. The value 128 is from a discrete data set.
[B](a) True, it's a bell curve symmetric about the mean
(b) True, variance measures how far a set of numbers is spread out. A variance of zero indicates that all the values are identical
(c) True. P(A) is the probability of an event and P(Ac) is the complement of the event, or any event that is not A. So either A happens or it does not. It covers all possible events in a sample space.
(d) False, we have sufficient evidence to reject H0.
(e) False. Volume can be a decimal or fractional. There are multiple values between 127 and 128. So it's continuous.[/B]

Write a fraction with a denominator of 9. The fraction should be less than 1/2
Let n be the numerator. We have:
n/9 < 1/2
multiply each side by 9:
9n/9 < 9/2
n < 9/2
Examples are 8/2, 7/2, 6/2, 5/2, 4/2, 3/2,

x/y + 9 = n for x

x/y + 9 = n for x
Subtract 9 from each side to isolate the x term:
x/y + 9 - 9 = n - 9
Cancel the 9's on the left side and we get:
x/y = n - 9
Because we have a fraction on the left side, we can cross multiply the denominator y by n - 9
