1 integer is 7 times another. If the product of the 2 integers is 448, then find the integers.

1 integer is 7 times another. If the product of the 2 integers is 448, then find the integers.
Let the first integer be x and the second integer be y. We have the following two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = 7y
[*]xy = 448
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2), we have:
(7y)y = 448
7y^2 = 448
Divide each side by 7
y^2 = 64
y = -8, 8
We use 8, since 8*7 = 56, and 56*8 =448. So the answer is [B](x, y) = (8, 56)[/B]

10 times the first of 2 consecutive even integers is 8 times the second. Find the integers

10 times the first of 2 consecutive even integers is 8 times the second. Find the integers.
Let the first integer be x. Let the second integer be y. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]10x = 8y
[*]We also know a consecutive even integer means we add 2 to x to get y. y = x + 2
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2):
10x = 8(x + 2)
Multiply through:
10x = 8x + 16
To solve for x, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=10x%3D8x%2B16&pl=Solve']we type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:
[B]x = 8[/B]
Since y = x + 2, we plug in x = 8 to get:
y = 8 + 2
[B]y = 10
[/B]
Now, let's check our work. Does x = 8 and y = 10 make equation 1 hold?
10(8) ? 8(10)
80 = 80 <-- Yes!

149 cars are waiting to take a ferry across the channel each ferry can only hold 18 cars how many trips will it take to get all the cars across
Number of trips = Total Cars / Cars Per ferry trip
Number of trips = 149/18
Number of trips = 8.28 trips
We round up to the next integer and we have [B]9 trips[/B]

2 consecutive even integers that equal 118

Let x be the first even integer. That means the next consecutive even integer must be x + 2.
Set up our equation:
x + (x + 2) = 118
Group x terms
2x + 2 = 118
Subtract 2 from each side
2x = 116
Divide each side by 2
x = 58
Which means the next consecutive even integer is 58 + 2 = 60
So our two consecutive even integers are [B]58, 60[/B]
Check our work:
58 + 60 = 118

2 consecutive odd integers such that their product is 15 more than 3 times their sum

2 consecutive odd integers such that their product is 15 more than 3 times their sum.
Let the first integer be n. The next odd, consecutive integer is n + 2.
We are given the product is 15 more than 3 times their sum:
n(n + 2) = 3(n + n + 2) + 15
Simplify each side:
n^2 + 2n = 6n + 6 + 15
n^2 + 2n = 6n + 21
Subtract 6n from each side:
n^2 - 4n - 21 = 0

2consecutiveevenintegerssuchthatthesmalleraddedto5timesthelargergivesasumof70

2 consecutive even integers such that the smaller added to 5 times the larger gives a sum of 70.
Let the first, smaller integer be x. And the second larger integer be y. Since they are both even, we have:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = y - 2 <-- Since they're consecutive even integers
[*]x + 5y = 70 <-- Smaller added to 5 times the larger gives a sum of 70
[/LIST]
Substitute (1) into (2):
(y - 2) + 5y = 70
Group like terms:
(1 + 5)y - 2 = 70
6y - 2 = 70
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=6y-2%3D70&pl=Solve']Typing 6y - 2 = 70 into our search engine[/URL], we get:
[B]y = 12 <-- Larger integer[/B]
Plugging this into Equation (1) we get:
x = 12 - 2
[B]x = 10 <-- Smaller Integer[/B]
So (x, y) = (10, 12)

[LIST]
[*]Let the first integer be n
[*]The next odd one (middle) is n + 2.
[*]The next odd one is n + 4
[/LIST]
We are given 3(n + 2) = n + n + 4 + 15.
Simplifying, we get:
3n + 6 = 2n + 19
[URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3n%2B6%3D2n%2B19&pl=Solve']Plugging that problem[/URL] into our search engine, we get n = 13.
So the next odd integer is 13 + 2 = 15
The next odd integer is 15 + 2 = 17

Let n be our first consecutive integer.
[LIST=1]
[*]n
[*]n + 1
[*]n + 2
[*]n + 3
[/LIST]
The sum of the first 3 integers is equal to the 4th:
n + n + 1 + n + 2 = n + 3
Simplify by grouping like terms:
(n + n + n) + (1 + 2) = n + 3
3n + 3 = n + 3
3n = n
n = 0
n = 0
n + 1 = 1
n + 2 = 2
n + 3 = 3
Check our work:
0 + 1 +2 ? 3
3 = 3
Our final answer is [B](0, 1, 2, 3}[/B]

7x^2 + 5x = 2
[U]This is a quadratic equation. To get it into standard form, we subtract 2 from each side:[/U]
7x^2 + 5x - 2 = 2 - 2
7x^2 + 5x - 2 = 0

if a and b are odd then a + b is even

if a and b are odd then a + b is even
Let a and b be positive odd integers of the form:
[LIST]
[*]a = 2n + 1
[*]b = 2m + 1
[/LIST]
a + b = 2n + 1 + 2m + 1
a + b = 2n + 2m + 1 + 1
Combing like terms, we get:
a + b = 2n + 2m + 2
a + b = 2(n + m) + 2
Let k = n + m
a + b = 2k + 2
[B]Therefore a + b is even[/B]

if a divides b, then a divides bc

if a divides b, then a divides bc
Suppose a divides b. Then there exists an integer q such that b = aq, so that bc = a(qc) and a divides bc.
Suppose that a divides c. Then there exists an integer k such that c = ak, so that bc = a(kb) and a divides bc.

If a is an even integer and b is an odd integer then prove a − b is an odd integer

If a is an even integer and b is an odd integer then prove a − b is an odd integer
Let a be our even integer
Let b be our odd integer
We can express a = 2x (Standard form for even numbers) for some integer x
We can express b = 2y + 1 (Standard form for odd numbers) for some integer y
a - b = 2x - (2y + 1)
a - b = 2x - 2y - 1
Factor our a 2 from the first two terms:
a - b = 2(x - y) - 1
Since x - y is an integer, 2(x- y) is always even. Subtracting 1 makes this an odd number.

If a, b, and c are positive integers such that a^b = x and c^b = y, then xy = ?

If a, b, and c are positive integers such that a^b = x and c^b = y, then xy = ?
A) ac^b
B) ac^2b
C) (ac)^b
D) (ac)^2b
E) (ac)^b^2
xy = a^b * c^b
We can use the Power of a Product Rule
a^b * c^b = (ac)^b
Therefore:
xy = [B](ac)^b - Answer C[/B]

If first integer is 5y, then the next two consecutive integers are

5y + 1 + 1 = [B]5y + 2[/B]

If n is odd, then 3n + 2 is odd

Look at the Contrapositive: If n is even, then 3n + 2 is even...
Suppose that the conclusion is false, i.e., that n is even.
Then n = 2k for some integer k.
Then we have:
3n + 2 = 3(2k) + 2
3n + 2 = 6k + 2
3n + 2 = 2(3k + 1).
Thus 3n + 2 is even, because it equals 2j for an integer j = 3k + 1.
So 3n + 2 is not odd.
We have shown that ¬(n is odd) → ¬(3n + 2 is odd),
therefore, the contrapositive (3n + 2 is odd) → (n is odd) is also true.

If n represents an odd integer what represents the previous smaller odd integer

If n represents an odd integer what represents the previous smaller odd integer
Each odd integer is 2 away from the last one, so the previous smaller odd integer is found by subtracting 2 from n:

If x represents the first, or the smaller, of two consecutive odd integers, express the sum of the two integers in terms of x
If x is the first of two consecutive odd integers, then we find the next consecutive odd integer by adding 2 to x:
x + 2
The sum of the two consecutive odd integers is expressed by
x + (x + 2)
Simplify by grouping like terms, we get:
[B]2x + 2[/B]

Let n be an integer. If n^2 is odd, then n is odd

Let n be an integer. If n^2 is odd, then n is odd
Proof by contraposition:
Suppose that n is even. Then we can write n = 2k
n^2 = (2k)^2 = 4k^2 = 2(2k) so it is even
[I]So an odd number can't be the square of an even number. So if an odd number is a square it must be the square of an odd number.[/I]

Let n be the middle number of three consecutive integers
This means:

Let P(n) and S(n) denote the product and the sum, respectively, of the digits of the integer n. For

Let P(n) and S(n) denote the product and the sum, respectively, of the digits of the integer n. For example, P(23) = 6 and S(23) = 5. Suppose N is a two-digit number such that N = P(N) + S(N). What could N be? Is there more than one answer?
For example, for 23 P(23) = 6 and S(23) = 5, but 23 could not be the N that we want since 23 <> 5 + 6
Let t = tens digit and o = ones digit
P(n) = to
S(n) = t + o
P(n) + S(n) = to + t + o
N = 10t + o
Set them equal to each other N = P(N) + S(N)
10t + o = to + t + o
o's cancel, so we have
10t = to + t
Subtract t from each side, we have
9t = to
Divide each side by t
o = 9
So any two-digit number with 9 as the ones digit will work:
[B]{19,29,39,49,59,69,79,89,99}[/B]

Let x be an integer. If x is odd, then x^2 is odd

Let x be an integer. If x is odd, then x^2 is odd
Proof: Let x be an odd number. This means that x = 2n + 1 where n is an integer.
[U]Squaring x, we get:[/U]
x^2 = (2n + 1)^2 = (2n + 1)(2n + 1)
x^2 = 4n^2 + 4n + 1
x^2 = 2(2n^2 + 2n) + 1
2(2n^2 + 2n) is an even number since 2 multiplied by any integer is even
So adding 1 is an odd number

Prove sqrt(2) is irrational

Use proof by contradiction. Assume sqrt(2) is rational.
This means that sqrt(2) = p/q for some integers p and q, with q <>0.
We assume p and q are in lowest terms.
Square both side and we get:
2 = p^2/q^2
p^2 = 2q^2
This means p^2 must be an even number which means p is also even since the square of an odd number is odd.
So we have p = 2k for some integer k. From this, it follows that:
2q^2 = p^2 = (2k)^2 = 4k^2
2q^2 = 4k^2
q^2 = 2k^2
q^2 is also even, therefore q must be even.
So both p and q are even.
This contradicts are assumption that p and q were in lowest terms.
So sqrt(2) [B]cannot be rational.

Take an integer n. The next alternate consecutive integer is n + 2

Prove the sum of any two rational numbers is rational

Take two integers, r and s.
We can write r as a/b for integers a and b since a rational number can be written as a quotient of integers
We can write s as c/d for integers c and d since a rational number can be written as a quotient of integers
Add r and s:
r + s = a/b + c/d
With a common denominator bd, we have:
r + s = (ad + bc)/bd
Because a, b, c, and d are integers, ad + bc is an integer since rational numbers are closed under addition and multiplication.
Since b and d are non-zero integers, bd is a non-zero integer.
Since we have the quotient of 2 integers, r + s is a rational number.

2m = 2n + 1
Subtract 2n from each side:
2m - 2n = 1
Factor out a 2 on the left side:
2(m - n) = 1
By definition of divisibility, this means that 2 divides 1.
But we know that the only two numbers which divide 1 are 1 and -1.
Therefore, our original assumption that x was both even and odd must be false.

The sum of 3 consecutive odd numbers equals 117. What are the 3 odd numbers?
1) Set up an equation where our [I]odd numbers[/I] are n, n + 2, n + 4
2) We increment by 2 for each number since we have [I]odd numbers[/I].
3) We set this sum of consecutive [I]odd numbers[/I] equal to 117
n + (n + 2) + (n + 4) = 117
[SIZE=5][B]Simplify this equation by grouping variables and constants together:[/B][/SIZE]
(n + n + n) + 2 + 4 = 117
3n + 6 = 117
[SIZE=5][B]Subtract 6 from each side to isolate 3n:[/B][/SIZE]
3n + 6 - 6 = 117 - 6
[SIZE=5][B]Cancel the 6 on the left side and we get:[/B][/SIZE]
3n + [S]6[/S] - [S]6[/S] = 117 - 6
3n = 111
[SIZE=5][B]Divide each side of the equation by 3 to isolate n:[/B][/SIZE]
3n/3 = 111/3
[SIZE=5][B]Cancel the 3 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
[S]3[/S]n/[S]3 [/S]= 111/3
n = 37
Call this n1, so we find our other 2 numbers
n2 = n1 + 2
n2 = 37 + 2
n2 = 39
n3 = n2 + 2
n3 = 39 + 2
n3 = 41

[*]A number which can be written in the form of 2 m where m is an integer, is called an even integer.
[*]A number which can be written in the form of 2 m + 1 where m is an integer, is called an odd integer.
[/LIST]
Take two consecutive integers, one even, and one odd:
2n and 2n + 1
Now add them
2n + (2n+ 1) = 4n + 1 = 2(2 n) + 1
The sum is of the form 2n + 1 (2n is an integer because the product of two integers is an integer)
Therefore, the sum of two consecutive integers is an odd number.

The cost of renting a rototiller is $19.50 for the first hour and $7.95 for each additional hour. Ho

The cost of renting a rototiller is $19.50 for the first hour and $7.95 for each additional hour. How long can a person have the rototiller if the cost must be less than $95?
Setup the inequality:
$19.50 + $7.95x < $95
Subtract 19.50 from both sides:
7.95x < 75.50
Divide each side of the inequality by 7.95 to isolate x
x < 9.5
The next lowest integer is 9. So we take 9 + the first hour of renting to get [B]10 total hours[/B].
Check our work:
$7.95 * 9.5 + $19.50
$71.55 + $19.50 = $91.05

The domain of a relation is all even negative integers greater than -9. The range y of the relation

The domain of a relation is all even negative integers greater than -9. The range y of the relation is the set formed by adding 4 to the numbers in the domain. Write the relation as a table of values and as an equation.
The domain is even negative integers greater than -9:
{-8, -6, -4, -2}
Add 4 to each x for the range:
{-8 + 4 = -4, -6 + 4 = -2. -4 + 4 = 0, -2 + 4 = 2}
For ordered pairs, we have:
(-8, -4)
(-6, -2)
(-4, 0)
(-2, 2)
The equation can be written:
y = x + 4 on the domain (x | x is an even number where -8 <= x <= -2)

The expression (5x - 2)/(x + 3) is equivalent to which of the following?

Let's start with an integer x = 2. Plug that into our original expression, and we get:
(5(2) - 2)(2 + 3)
(10 - 2)/5
8/5
So what we do next is, take x = 2, and plug it into answer choices A-D, and see which one results in 8/5
A) 3/3 = 1 <-- Nope
B) Since 5 is 15/3, we have 15/3 - 2/3 = 13/3 which is over 4, so Nope
C) 5 - (2/(2 + 3)) = 5 - (2/5). Since 5 is 25/5, we have 25/5 - 2/5 = 23/5. <-- Nope
D) 5 - (17/(2 + 3)) = 5 - 17/5. Since 5 is 25/5, we have 25/5 - 17/5 = 8/5 <-- YES
Since 8/5 = 8/5, our answer is [B]D) 5 - (17/(x + 3))[/B]

Let j be the number of jeans. Let s be the number of shirts. We are given:
[LIST]
[*]Mom told you to buy one pair of jeans. So we have $80 to start with - $29 for 1 pair of jeans = $51 left over
[/LIST]
Now, since shirts cost $12 each, and our total number of shirts we can buy is s, our inequality is [B]12s <= 51[/B].
We want to find the s that makes this inequality true.
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/interval-notation-calculator.php?num=12s%3C%3D51&pl=Show+Interval+Notation']Run this statement through our calculator[/URL], and we get s <= 4.25. But, we need s to be an integer, so we have s <= 4.

You have to pay 29 a month until you reach 850 how many months will that take

You have to pay 29 a month until you reach 850 how many months will that take.
Let m be the number of months. We set up the inequality:
29m > = 850 <-- We want to know when we meet or exceed 850, so we use greater than or equal to
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/interval-notation-calculator.php?num=29m%3E%3D850&pl=Show+Interval+Notation']Type this inequality into our search engine[/URL], and we get:
m >= 29.31
We round up to the next integer month, to get [B]m = 30[/B].
