A giant tortoise can live 175 years in captivity. The gastrotrich, which is a small aquatic animal, has a life-span of only 3 days (72 hours). If a gastrotrich died after 36 hours, a giant tortoise that lived 87.5 yeas would live proportionally the same because they both would have died halfway through their life-span.
How long would a giant tortoise live if it lived proportionally the same as a gastrotrich that died after 50 hours?

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:

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

One positive number is one-fifth of another number. The difference between the two numbers is 192, f

One positive number is one-fifth of another number. The difference between the two numbers is 192, find the numbers.
Let the first number be x and the second number be y. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]x = y/5
[*]x + y = 192
[/LIST]
Substitute equation 1 into equation 2:
y/5 + y = 192
Since 1 equals 5/5, we rewrite our equation like this:
y/5 = 5y/5 = 192
We have fractions with like denominators, so we add the numerators:
(1 + 5)y/5 = 192
6y/5 = 192

Tina's mom made brownies. When tinas friend came over they ate 1/3 of the brownies. Her sister ate 2 and her dad ate 4. If there are 26 brownies left. How many did her mom make
Let b denote the number of brownies Tina's mom made. We're given:
b - 1/3b - 2 - 4 = 26
Combining like terms, we have:
2b/3 - 6 = 26
Add 6 to each side, we get:
2b/3 = 32
To solve this equation for b, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/prop.php?num1=2b&num2=32&den1=3&den2=1&propsign=%3D&pl=Calculate+missing+proportion+value']type it in our math engine[/URL] and we get:

what integer is tripled when 9 is added to 3 fourths of it?

what integer is tripled when 9 is added to 3 fourths of it?
Let the integer be n. Tripling an integer means multiplying it by 3. We're given:
3n = 3n/4 + 9
Since 3 = 12/4, we have:
12n/4 = 3n/4 + 9
Subtract 3n/4 from each side:
9n/4 = 9
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/prop.php?num1=9n&num2=9&den1=4&den2=1&propsign=%3D&pl=Calculate+missing+proportion+value']Typing this equation into the search engine[/URL], we get:

Write an equation that relates the quantities. G varies jointly with t and q and inversely with the cube of w . The constant of proportionality is 8.25 .
[LIST]
[*]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

Using k = 8.25 as our constant of proportionality, we have:
[B]g = 8.25qt/w^3[/B]

You are purchasing carpeting for an office building. The space to be carpeted is 30 feet by 50 feet.

You are purchasing carpeting for an office building. The space to be carpeted is 30 feet by 50 feet. Company A charges $2.99 per square foot plus a $200 installation charge. Company B charges $19.99 per square yard plus a $500 installation charge. What is the best deal?
Did you notice the word snuck in on this problem? Company B is given in square [I][B]yards[/B][/I], not feet. Let's convert their price to square feet to match company A.
[U]Company B conversion:[/U]
Since we have 1 square yard = 3 feet * 3 feet = 9 square feet, we need to solve the following proportion:
$19.99/square yard * 1 square yard/9 feet = $19.99 square yard / 9 feet = $2.22 / square foot.
Now, let's set up the cost equations C(s) for each Company in square feet (s)
[LIST]
[*]Company A: C(s) = 200 + 2.99s
[*]Company B: C(s) = 500 + 2.22s
[/LIST]
The problem asks for s = 30 feet * 50 feet = 1500 square feet. So we want to calculate C(1500)
[U]Company A:[/U]
C(1500) = 200 + 2.99(1500)
C(1500) = 200 + 4485
C(1500) = 4685
[U]Company B:[/U]
C(1500) = 500 + 2.22(1500)
C(1500) = 500 + 3330
C(1500) = 3830
Since [B]Company B[/B] has the lower cost per square foot, they are the better buy.

You prepare 18 scoops of dog food for 6 dogs, and prepare 24 scoops of dog food for 8 dogs. What is the constant of proportionality for the amount of dog food to the number of dogs? How many scoops of dog food should you prepare for 9 dogs?
18/6 = 24/8 = 3 as the constant of proportionality for the amount of dog food to the number of dogs.
What this means is for every dog, we give them 3 scoops of food.
So for 9 dogs, we give 9 dogs * 3 scoops of food per dog = 27 scoops
