A 3 hour river cruise goes 15 km upstream and then back again. The river has a current of 2 km an hour. What is the boat's speed and how long was the upstream journey?
[U]Set up the relationship of still water speed and downstream speed[/U]
Speed down stream = Speed in still water + speed of the current
Speed down stream = x+2
Therefore:
Speed upstream =x - 2
Since distance = rate * time, we rearrange to get time = Distance/rate:
15/(x+ 2) + 15 /(x- 2) = 3
Multiply each side by 1/3 and we get:
5/(x + 2) + 5/(x - 2) = 1
Using a common denominator of (x + 2)(x - 2), we get:
5(x - 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2) + 5(x + 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2)
(5x - 10 + 5x + 10)/5(x - 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2)
10x = (x+2)(x-2)
We multiply through on the right side to get:
10x = x^2 - 4
Subtract 10x from each side:
x^2 - 10x - 4 = 0
This is a quadratic equation. To solve it, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=x%5E2-10x-4%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
Speed of the boat in still water =X=5 +- sq. Root of 29 kmph
We only want the positive solution:
x = 5 + sqrt(29)
x = 10.38
[U]Calculate time for upstream journey:[/U]
Time for upstream journey = 15/(10.38 - 2)
Time for upstream journey = 15/(8.38)
Time for upstream journey = [B]1.79[/B]
[U]Calculate time for downstream journey:[/U]
Time for downstream journey = 15/(10.38 + 2)
Time for downstream journey = 15/(12.38)

The bacteria cells double each hour in the example above.
From 3pm to 7pm, we have 4 hours, meaning 4 doubling periods. Which is 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 or 2^4.
So we have:
40 * 2^4
40 * 16 = [B]640 cells[/B]

11:55
Now we add 27 minutes to this time:
5 more minutes gets us to 12:00 PM

A light bulb consumes 17100 watt-hours in 4 days and 18 hours. How many watt-hours does it consume a day?
Since one day equals 24 hours, we have:
4 days and 18 hours equals:
4(24) + 18 hours
96 + 18 hours
114 hours
Therefore, we have a proportion, where w is the number of watt-hours in a 24-hour period.
17,100 watt-hours/114 hours = w/24

A shop tech earns a base PayPal $15.68 per hour, plus "time-and-a-half" for overtime (time exceeding 40 hours). If he work 44.5 hours during a particular week, what is his gross pay?
Gross pay = Regular Pay + Overtime Pay
Calculate regular pay:
Regular Pay = 40 hours * $15.68 = $627.20
Calculate overtime pay
Overtime pay = (44.5 - 40) * 1.5 * $15.68
Overtime Pay = 4.5 * 1.5 * $15.68
Overtime Pay = $105.84
Gross pay = $627.20 + $105.84
Gross pay = [B]$733.04[/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.

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.

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.

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:

From above, we have:
[LIST]
[*]6mph x 10 minutes = 1 mile
[*]8mph x 7.5 minutes = 1 mile

Jeff Bezos, who owns Amazon, has a net worth of approximately $143.1 billion (as of mid-2018). An employee in the Amazon distribution center earns about $13 an hour. The estimated lifespan of the employee is 71 years. If the employee worked 24 hours a day, every day of the year from the moment of his birth, how many lifespans would it take for him to earn wages equivalent to Jeff Bezos' net worth? Round the answer to the nearest whole number.
Calculate earnings per lifespan:
Earnings per lifespan = lifespan in years * Annual Earnings
Earnings per lifespan = 71 * 13 * 24 * 365 <-- (24 hours per day * 365 days per year)
Earnings per lifespan = 8,085,480
Calculate the number of lifespans needed to match Jeff Bezos earnings:
Number of lifespans = Jeff Bezos Net Worth / Earnings Per Lifespan
Number of lifespans = 143,100,000,000 / 8,085,480
Number of lifespans = [B]17,698.39 ~ 17,699[/B]

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

When the drain is closed, a swimming pool can be filled in 4 hours. When the drain is opened, it takes 5 hours to empty the pool. The pool is being filled, but the drain was accidentally left open. How long until the pool is completely filled?
Set up unit fill rates per hour:
[LIST]
[*]1/4 of the pool is filled each hour
[*]1/5 of the pool is drained away each hour
[/LIST]
The amount left over after an hour of filling minus draining is:
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=1%2F4&frac2=1%2F5&pl=Subtract']1/4 - 1/5[/URL] = 1/20
Therefore, it take [B]20 hours to fill the pool[/B]

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
The difference is 2 tubs filled per hour.
Therefore, we have 1 tub filled in [B]1/2 hour or 30 minutes[/B]

writing and solving equations

My daughter is having issues with a math problem for her homework. she tells me that I am doing it wrong but I am getting the correct answer... Can you please look at it and see if i am correct?
The problem is:
A painter charges $15.35 per hour, plus an additional amount for supplies. If he made $141.73 on a job where he worked 4 hours, how much did the supplies cost?
I have the equation as: $15.35 * 4 = $141.73 - x ... I got the answer of $80.33 for supplies
She is telling me that the teacher is wanting her to do the PEMDAS backwards but that is not working out for her and I am not understanding that at all. Any suggestions would help out
Thanks,
Tina

writing and solving equations

Your answer is correct.
Here is how I set up the profit equation where h is the hours worked and x is the supply cost:
P(h) = 15.35h + x
We know P(4) = 141.73
P(4) = 15.35(4) + x
141.73 = 15.35(4) + x
Simplify
141.73 = 61.4 + x
Subtract 61.4 from each side:
[B]x = 80.33[/B]

Yael worked out at a gym for 2 hours. Her workout consisted of stretching for 21 minutes,jogging for 45 minutes, and lifting weights for the remaining amount of time. What percentage of Yael’s workout was spent lifting weights?
Each hour is 60 minutes, so we have 2 * 60 = 120 minutes of workout time for Yael.
We subtract off the stretching and jogging time to get the time Yael lifted weights:
120 - 21 - 45 = 54 minutes

Yolanda wants to rent a boat and spend less than $41. The boat costs $8 per hour, and Yolanda has a discount coupon for $7 off. What are the possible numbers of hours Yolanda could rent the boat?
A few things to build this problem:
[LIST=1]
[*]Discount subtracts from our total
[*]Cost = Hourly rate * hours
[*]Less than means an inequality using the < sign
[/LIST]
Our inequality is:
8h - 7 < 41
To solve this inequality for h, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=8h-7%3C41&pl=Solve']type it in our math engine[/URL] and we get:

You can get 2 different moving companies to help you move. The first one charges $150 up front then $38 an hour. The second one charges $230 then $30 an hour, at what exact time will Both companies cost the same
[U]Company 1: We set up the cost equation C(h) where h is the number of hours[/U]
C(h) = Hourly Rate * h + up front charge
C(h) = 38h + 150
[U]Company 2: We set up the cost equation C(h) where h is the number of hours[/U]
C(h) = Hourly Rate * h + up front charge
C(h) = 30h + 230
The question asks for h when both cost equations C(h) are equal. So we set both C(h) equations equal to other:
38h + 150 = 30h + 230
To solve for h, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=38h%2B150%3D30h%2B230&pl=Solve']type this equation into our search engine [/URL]and we get:

You earned $141 last week babysitting and cleaning. You earned $5 per hour babysitting and $7 per hour cleaning. You worked 9 more hours babysitting than cleaning. How many hours did you work last week?
Let b be the hours of babysitting and c be the hours of cleaning. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]b = c + 9
[*]5b + 7c = 141
[/LIST]
Substitute equation (1) into (2):
5(c + 9) + 7c = 141
Multiply through:
5c + 45 + 7c = 141
Combine like terms:
