$1,100 per month for 10 years, if the account earns 2% per year

$1,100 per month for 10 years, if the account earns 2% per year
What the student or parent is asking is: If they deposit $1,100 per month in a savings/investment account every month for 10 years, and they earn 2% per year, how much will the account be worth after 10 years?
Deposits are monthly. But interest crediting is annual. What we want is to match the two based on interest crediting time, which is annual or yearly.
1100 per month. * 12 months in a year = 13,200 per year in deposit
Since we matched interest crediting period with deposits, we now want to know:
If they deposit $13,200 per year in a savings/investment account every year for 10 years, and they earn 2% per year, how much will the account be worth after 10 years?
This is an annuity, which is a constant stream of payments with interest crediting at a certain period.

-65 times the difference between a number and 79 is equal to the number plus 98

-65 times the difference between a number and 79 is equal to the number plus 98
The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable. Let's call it x.
The first expression, [I]the difference between a number and 79[/I] means we subtract 79 from our arbitrary variable of x:
x - 79
Next, -65 times the difference between a number and 79 means we multiply our result above by -65:
-65(x - 79)
The phrase [I]the number[/I] refers to the arbitrary variable x earlier. The number plus 98 means we add 98 to x:
x + 98
Now, let's bring it all together. The phrase [I]is equal to[/I] means an equation. So we set -65(x - 79) equal to x + [B]98:
-65(x - 79) = x + 98[/B] <-- This is our algebraic expression

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]

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

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)
Time for downstream journey = [B]1.21[/B]

A ball was dropped from a height of 6 feet and began bouncing. The height of each bounce was three-fourths the height of the previous bounce. Find the total vertical distance travelled by the all in ten bounces.
The height of each number bounce (n) is shown as:
h(n) = 6(0.75)^n
We want to find h(10)
h(n) = 6(0.75)^n
Time Height

8 0.6006774902
9 0.4505081177
10 0.3378810883
Adding up each bounce from 1-10, we get:
16.98635674
Since vertical distance means both [B]up and down[/B], we multiply this number by 2 to get:
16.98635674 * 2 = 33.97271347
Then we add in the initial bounce of 6 to get:
33.97271347 + 6 = [B]39.97271347 feet[/B]

A baseball card that was valued at $100 in 1970 has increased in value by 8% each year. Write a function to model the situation the value of the card in 2020.Let x be number of years since 1970
The formula for accumulated value of something with a percentage growth p and years x is:
V(x) = Initial Value * (1 + p/100)^x
Set up our growth equation where 8% = 0.08 and V(y) for the value at time x and x = 2020 - 1970 = 50, we have:
V(x) = 100 * (1 + 8/100)^50
V(x) = 100 * (1.08)^50
V(x) = 100 * 46.9016125132

A car is purchased for $19000. After each year, the resale value decreases by 30% . What will the resale value be after 4 years?
Set up a book value function B(t) where t is the number of years after purchase date. If an asset decreases by 30%, we subtract it from the original 100% of the starting value at time t:
B(t) = 19,000(1-0.3)^t
Simplifying this, we get:
B(t) = 19,000(0.7)^t <-- I[I]f an asset decreases by 30%, it keeps 70% of it's value from the prior period[/I]
The problem asks for B(4):
B(4) = 19,000(0.7)^4
B(4) = 19,000(0.2401)
B(4) = [B]4,561.90[/B]

If it decreases by 20%, it holds 100% - 20% = 80% of the value each year. So we have an equation R(t) where t is the time after purchase:
R(t) = 27,000 * (0.8)^t
The problem asks for R(3):
R(3) = 27,000 * (0.8)^3
R(3) = 27,000 * 0.512
R(3) = [B]13.824[/B]

A colony of 995 bacteria doubles in size every 206 minutes. What will the population be 618 minutes

A colony of 995 bacteria doubles in size every 206 minutes. What will the population be 618 minutes from now?
Calculate the doubling time periods:
Doubling Time Periods = Total Minutes From Now / Doubling Period in Minutes
Doubling Time Periods = 618/206
Doubling Time Periods = 3
Calculate the new population using the doubling time formula below where t is the number of doubling periods:
Population = Initial Population * 2^2
Population = 995 * 2^3

A cookie recipe uses 10 times as much flour as sugar. If the total amount of these ingredients is 8 1/4 cups, how much flour and how much sugar would it be?
Let f be the number of cups of sugar. And let f be the number of cups of flour. We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]f = 10s
[*]s + f = 8 & 1/4

A credit plan charges interest rate of 36% compounded monthly. Find the effective rate.

A credit plan charges interest rate of 36% compounded monthly. Find the effective rate.
[U]Calculate Monthly Nominal Rate:[/U]
Monthly Nominal Rate = Annual Rate / 12 months per year
Monthly Nominal Rate = 36%/12
Monthly Nominal Rate = 3%
[U]Since there are 12 months in a year, we compound 12 times to get the effective rate below:[/U]
Effective Rate = (1 + Monthly Nominal Rate as a Decimal)^12 - 1
Since 3% = 0.03, we have:
Effective Rate = 100% * ((1 + 0.03)^12 - 1)
Effective Rate = 100% * ((1.03)^12 - 1)
Effective Rate = 100% * (1.42576088685 - 1)
Effective Rate = 100% * (0.42576088685)

Every month, the baby gains 2/3 of a pound. So we have:

A new car worth $24,000 is depreciating in value by $3,000 per year , how many years till the cars value will be $9,000
We have a flat rate depreciation each year. Set up the function D(t) where t is the number of years of depreciation:
D(t) = 24000 - 3000t
The problem asks for the time (t) when D(t) = 9000. So we set D(t) = 9000

Step 1, the question asks for Book Value. Let y be the number of years since purchase.
We setup an equation B(y) which is the Book Value at time y.
B(y) = Sale Price - Depreciation Amount * y
We're given Sale price = $30,000, depreciation amount = 3,000, and B(y) = 9000

A restaurant chain sells 15,000 pizzas each month, and 70% of the pizzas are topped with pepperoni.

A restaurant chain sells 15,000 pizzas each month, and 70% of the pizzas are topped with pepperoni. Of these, 2/3 also have peppers. How many pizzas have pepperoni and peppers?
We multiply the pizzas sold by the percentage of pepperoni times the fraction of peppers. Since 70% is 7/10, we have:
Pizzas with pepperoni and peppers = 15,000 * 7/10 * 2/3
7/10 * 2/3 = 14/30. [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=14%2F30&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']Using our fraction simplifier calculator[/URL], we can reduce this to 7/15

A retired couple invested $8000 in bonds. At the end of one year, they received an interest payment

A retired couple invested $8000 in bonds. At the end of one year, they received an interest payment of $584. What was the simple interest rate of the bonds?
For simple interest, we have:
Balance * interest rate = Interest payment
8000i = 584
Divide each side of the equation by 8000 to isolate i:
8000i/8000 = 584/8000
Cancelling the 8000's on the left side, we get:
i = 0.073
Most times, interest rates are expressed as a percentage.
Percentage interest = Decimal interest * 100%
Percentage interest = 0.073 * 100%
Multiplying by 100 is the same as moving the decimal point two places right:
Percentage interest = [B]7.3%[/B]

A scuba diver is 30 feet below the surface of the water 10 seconds after he entered the water and 100 feet below the surface after 40 seconds later. At what rate is the scuba diver going deeper down in the water
If we take these as coordinates on a graph, where y is the depth and x is the time, we calculate our slope or rate of change where (x1, y1) = (10, 30) and (x2, y2) = (40, 100)
Rate of change = (y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)
Rate of change = (100 - 30)/(40 - 10)
Rate of change = 70/30
Rate of change =[B] 2.333 feet per second[/B]

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]

A student and the marine biologist are together at t = 0. The student ascends more slowly than the m

A student and the marine biologist are together at t = 0. The student ascends more slowly than the marine biologist. Write an equation of a function that could represent the student's ascent. Please keep in mind the slope for the marine biologist is 12.
Slope means rise over run.
In this case, rise is the ascent distance and run is the time.
12 = 12/1, so for each second of time, the marine biologist ascends 12 units of distance
If the student ascends slower, than the total distance gets reduced by an unknown factor, let's call it c. So we have the student's ascent function as:
[B]y(t) = 12t - c[/B]

A tortoise is walking in the desert. It walks at a speed of 5 meters per minute for 12.5 meters. For how many minutes does it walk?
Distance formula (d) for a rate (r) and time (t) is:
d = rt
We're given d = 12.5 and r = 5
12.5 = 5t
5t = 12.5

A town has a population of 12000 and grows at 5% every year. What will be the population after 12 years, to the nearest whole number?
We calculate the population of the town as P(t) where t is the time in years since now.
P(t) = 12000(1.05)^t
The problem asks for P(12)
P(12) = 12000(1.05)^12

A town has a population of 50,000. Its rate increases 8% every 6 months. Find the population after 4 years.
Every 6 months means twice a year. So we have 4 years * twice a year increase = 8 compounding periods.
Our formula for compounding an initial population P at time t is P(t) at a compounding percentage i:
P(t) = P * (1 + i)^t
Since 8% is 0.08 as a decimal and t = 4 *2 = 8, we have:
P(8) = 50000 * (1.08)^8
P(8) = 50000 * 1.85093
P(8) = 92,546.51
Since we can't have a partial person, we round down to [B]92,545[/B]

According to the American Bureau of Labor Statistics, you will devote 32 years to sleeping and eatin

According to the American Bureau of Labor Statistics, you will devote 32 years to sleeping and eating. The number of years sleeping will exceed the number of years eating by 24. Over your lifetime, how many years will you spend on each of these activities?
Assumptions:
[LIST]
[*]Let years eating be e
[*]Let years sleeping be s
[/LIST]
We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]s = e + 24
[*]e + s = 32

Amanda spent 2/5 of her time after school doing homework and ¼ of her remaining time riding her bike

Amanda spent 2/5 of her time after school doing homework and ¼ of her remaining time riding her bike. If she rode her bike for 45 minutes in a week, how much time did she devote to homework in the same week
If Amanda spent 2/5 of her time after school doing homework, she has 1 - 2/5 time left over.
We convert 1 to a fraction using a denominator of 5, we get:
5/5 - 2/5 = 3/5
And Amanda spent 1/4 of 3/5 of her time bike riding, which means she spent:
1(3)/4(5) = 3/20 of her time.
If the total time after school is t, we have:
3t/20 = 45

An eccentric millionaire decided to give away $1,000,000 if Janelle took one die and rolled a "4". He wanted Janelle to have a better than 1 in 6 chance of winning, so before she rolled the die he told her that she could roll the die 3 times. If any roll was a "4", she would win the million dollars. What are Janelle's chances of winning the million dollars?
Chance of winning each roll is 1/6. Which means the chances of losing each roll are 1 - 1/6 = 5/6
Calculate the probability of 3 straight losing rolls:
P(Lose) = P(Loser) * P(Loser) * P(Loser) = 5/6 * 5/6 * 5/6 = 125/216
P(Win) = 1 - P(Lose)
P(Win) = 1 - 125/216
P(Win) = 216/216 -125/216

An elevator can hold less than 2700 pounds of extra weight. If an average person weighs 150 pounds,

An elevator can hold less than 2700 pounds of extra weight. If an average person weighs 150 pounds, what is the maximum number of people (p) that can be on the elevator at one time?
Total weight = average weight per person * Number of people
Total weight = 150p
We know from the problem that:
150p < 2700
We want to solve this inequality for p. Divide each side of the inequality by 150:
150p/150 < 2700/150
Cancel the 150's on the left side and we get:

An employee earns $7.00 an hour for the first 35 hours worked in a week and $10.50 for any hours ove

An employee earns $7.00 an hour for the first 35 hours worked in a week and $10.50 for any hours over 35. One weeks paycheck (before deductions) was for $308.00. How many hours did the employee work?
Let's first check to see if the employee worked overtime:
Regular Hours: 35 * 7 = 245
Since the employee made $308, they worked overtime. Let's determine how much overtime money was made:
308 - 245 = 63
Now, to calculate the overtime hours, we divide overtime pay by overtime rate
63/10.50 = 6
Now figure out the total hours worked in the week:
Total Hours = Regular Pay Hours + Overtime Hours
Total Hours = 35 + 6
[B]Total Hours = 41[/B]

Anna is collecting boxes of cereal to deliver in a food bank. The volume of each cereal box is 324 cubic inches. The picture shows the cereal boxes she has collected so far. A large delivery box holds three times as many boxes as Anna collected.
About what is the volume of the delivery box?
The picture has 12 cereal boxes. Since the delivery box holds three times as many cereal boxes as Anna collected, the delivery box holds 12 * 3 = 36 cereal boxes.
With each cereal box having a volume of 324 cubic inches, we have the total volume as:
V = 324 cubic inches * 36 cereal boxes
V = [B]11,664 cubic inches[/B]

David has b dollars in his bank account; Claire has three times as much money as David. The sum of their money is $240. How much money does Claire have?
David has b
Claire has 3b since three times as much means we multiply b by 3
The sum of their money is found by adding David's bank balance to Claire's bank balance to get the equation:
3b + b = 240
To solve for b, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3b%2Bb%3D240&pl=Solve']we type this equation into our search engine[/URL] and we get:

Ethan has $9079 in his retirement account, and Kurt has $9259 in his. Ethan is adding $19per day, whereas Kurt is contributing $1 per day. Eventually, the two accounts will contain the same amount. What balance will each account have? How long will that take?
Set up account equations A(d) where d is the number of days since time 0 for each account.
Ethan A(d): 9079 + 19d
Kurt A(d): 9259 + d
The problems asks for when they are equal, and how much money they have in them. So set each account equation equal to each other:
9079 + 19d = 9259 + d

So in 10 days, both accounts will have equal amounts in them.
Now, pick one of the account equations, either Ethan or Kurt, and plug in d = 10. Let's choose Kurt's since we have a simpler equation:
A(10) = 9259 + 10
A(10) = $[B]9,269

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.
( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).
if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )
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.
Why should you waste your time?
_______
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.
___________
in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.
cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.
tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
___________________
if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )
5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )
and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
_______________________________
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit s.ex, no g.ambling, no d.rugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.
Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.
if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
____________
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
_________________________
Source(s):

if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( triple w ( d . o . t ) asitis ( d . o . t ) c . o . m {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, s.ex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

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.
( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).
if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )
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.
Why should you waste your time?
_______
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.
___________
in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.
cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.
tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.
___________________
if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit s.ex, No g.ambling, No d.rugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )
5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )
and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
_______________________________
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit s.ex, no g.ambling, no d.rugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.
Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.
if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
____________
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.

The phrase a number means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
Three times a number:
3x
And 18 means we add 18
3x + 18
The word is means equal to, so we set 3x + 18 equal to -39
3x + 18 = -39
This is your algebraic expression. If you want to solve for x, plug it into the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3x%2B18%3D-39&pl=Solve']search engine[/URL] and you get x = -19

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:

If you are running 6 miles per hour, then it takes you 10 minutes to run 1 mile. If you are running

If you are running 6 miles per hour, then it takes you 10 minutes to run 1 mile. If you are running 8 miles per hour, it takes you 7.5 minutes to run a mile. What does your speed have to be for your speed in miles per hour to be equal to your mile time in minutes?
From above, we have:

Kelly took clothes to the cleaners 3 times last month. First, she brought 4 shirts and 1 pair of slacks and paid11.45. Then she brought 5 shirts, 3 pairs of slacks, and 1 sports coat and paid 27.41. Finally, she brought 5 shirts and 1 sports coat and paid 16.94. How much was she charged for each shirt, each pair of slacks, and each sports coat?
Let s be the cost of shirts, p be the cost of slacks, and c be the cost of sports coats. We're given:
[LIST=1]
[*]4s + p = 11.45
[*]5s + 3p + c = 27.41
[*]5s + c = 16.94
[/LIST]
Rearrange (1) by subtracting 4s from each side:
p = 11.45 - 4s
Rearrange (3)by subtracting 5s from each side:
c = 16.94 - 5s
Take those rearranged equations, and plug them into (2):
5s + 3(11.45 - 4s) + (16.94 - 5s) = 27.41
Multiply through:
5s + 34.35 - 12s + 16.94 - 5s = 27.41

Plug s = 1.99 into modified equation (1):
p = 11.45 - 4(1.99)
p = 11.45 - 7.96
[B]p = 3.49[/B] <-- Slacks Cost
Plug s = 1.99 into modified equation (3):
c = 16.94 - 5(1.99)
c = 16.94 - 9.95
[B]c = 6.99[/B] <-- Sports Coat cost

Kevin is 4 times old as Daniel and is also 6 years older than Daniel

Kevin is 4 times old as Daniel and is also 6 years older than Daniel.
Let k be Kevin's age and d be Daniel's age. We have 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]k = 4d
[*]k = d + 6
[/LIST]
Plug (1) into (2):
4d = d + 6
Subtract d from each side:
4d - d = d - d + 6
Cancel the d terms on the right side and simplify:
3d = 6
Divide each side by 3:
3d/3 = 6/3
Cancel the 3 on the left side:
d = 2
Plug this back into equation (1):
k = 4(2)
k = 8
So Daniel is 2 years old and Kevin is 8 years old

Kiko is now 6 times as old as his sister. In 6 years, he will be 3 times as old as his sister. What

Kiko is now 6 times as old as his sister. In 6 years, he will be 3 times as old as his sister. What is their present age?

We're given two equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]k = 6s
[*]k + 6 = 3(s + 6)

kim and jason just had business cards made. kim’s printing company charged a one time setup fee of $8 and then $20 per box of cards. jason,meanwhile ordered his online. they cost $8 per box. there was no setup fee, but he had to pay $20 to have his order shipped to his house. by coincidence, kim and jason ended up spending the same amount on their business cards. how many boxes did each buy? how much did each spend?
Set up Kim's cost function C(b) where b is the number of boxes:
C(b) = Cost per box * number of cards + Setup Fee + Shipping Fee
C(b) = 20c + 8 + 0
Set up Jason's cost function C(b) where b is the number of boxes:
C(b) = Cost per box * number of cards + Setup Fee + Shipping Fee
C(b) = 8c + 0 + 20
Since Kim and Jason spent the same amount, set both cost equations equal to each other:
20c + 8 = 8c + 20

C(1) = 20(1) + 8
C(1) = 20 + 8
C(1) = [B]28

Nia is trying to decide between two possible jobs. Job A pays $2000 a month with a 2% annual raise.

Nia is trying to decide between two possible jobs. Job A pays $2000 a month with a 2% annual raise. Job B pays 24,000 a year with a $500 annual raise. Write a function to represent the annual salary for Job A after x years. Write a function to represent the annual salary for Job B after x years. After how many years would Nia have a greater salary at Job A?
Nia Job A salary at time t: S(t)
$2,000 per month equals $24,000 per year.
So we have S(t) = 24,000(1.o2)^t
Nia Job B salary at time t: S(t)
$24,000 per year.
So we have S(t) = 24,000 + 500t
We want to know t when Job A salary is greater than Job B Salary:

Sonia visited a park in California that had redwood trees. When Sonia asked how tall a certain large redwood tree was, the ranger said that he wouldn't tell its height, but would give Sonia a clue. How tall is the redwood tree Sonia asked about?
Sonia said the tree is 64 times my height. The tree is also 112 feet taller than the tree next to it. The two trees plus my height total 597.5 feet.
[LIST]
[*]Rangers's height = n
[*]Tree height = 64n
[*]Smaller tree height = 64n - 112
[*]Total height = 64n - 112 + 64n = 597.5

Solve for [I]n[/I] in the equation 64n - 112 + 64n = 597.5
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group the n terms on the left hand side:[/B][/SIZE]
(64 + 64)n = 128n
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Form modified equation[/B][/SIZE]
128n - 112 = + 597.5
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants -112 and 597.5. To do that, we add 112 to both sides
128n - 112 + 112 = 597.5 + 112
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 112 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]

Squaring a number equals 5 times that number

Squaring a number equals 5 times that number.
The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
Squaring this number:
x^2
5 times this number means we multiply by 5:
5x
The phrase [I]equals[/I] means we set both expressions equal to each other:
[B]x^2 = 5x [/B] <-- This is our algebraic expression
If you want to solve for x, then we subtract 5x from each side:
x^2 - 5x = 5x - 5x
Cancel the 5x on the right side, leaving us with 0:
x^2 - 5x = 0
Factor out x:
x(x - 5)
So we get x = 0 or [B]x = 5[/B]

the grass in jamie’s yard grew 16 centimeters in 10 days. how many days did it take for the grass to grow 1 centimeter
We set up a proportion of centimeters to days where d is the number of days it takes for the grass to grow 1 centimeter:
16/10 = 1/d
To solve this proportion for d, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/prop.php?num1=16&num2=1&den1=10&den2=d&propsign=%3D&pl=Calculate+missing+proportion+value']we type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:

The height of an object t seconds after it is dropped from a height of 300 meters is s(t)=-4.9t^2 +3

The height of an object t seconds after it is dropped from a height of 300 meters is s(t)=-4.9t^2 +300. Find the average velocity of the object during the first 3 seconds? (b) Use the Mean value Theorem to verify that at some time during the first 3 seconds of the fall the instantaneous velocity equals the average velocity. Find that time.
Average Velocity:
[ f(3) - f(0) ] / ( 3 - 0 )
Calculate f(3):
f(3) = -4.9(3^2) + 300
f(3) = -4.9(9) + 300
f(3) = -44.1 + 300
f(3) = 255.9
Calculate f(0):
f(0) = -4.9(0^2) + 300
f(0) = 0 + 300
f(0) = 300
So we have average velocity:
Average velocity = (255.9 - 300)/(3 - 0)
Average velocity = -44.1/3
Average velocity = -[B]14.7
[/B]
Velocity is the first derivative of position
s(t)=-4.9t^2 +300
s'(t) = -9.8t
So we set velocity equal to average velocity:
-9.8t = -14.7
Divide each side by -9.8 to solve for t, we get [B]t = 1.5[/B]

The length of a rectangular building is 6 feet less than 3 times the width. The perimeter is 120 fee

The length of a rectangular building is 6 feet less than 3 times the width. The perimeter is 120 feet. Find the width and length of the building.
P = 2l + 2w
Since P = 120, we have:
(1) 2l + 2w = 120
We are also given:
(2) l = 3w - 6
Substitute equation (2) into equation (1)
2(3w - 6) + 2w = 120
Multiply through:
6w - 12 + 2w = 120
Combine like terms:
8w - 12 = 120
Add 12 to each side:
8w = 132
Divide each side by 8 to isolate w:
w =16.5
Now substitute w into equation (2)
l = 3(16.5) - 6
l = 49.5 - 6
l = 43.5
So (l, w) = (43.5, 16.5)

We substitute equation (1) into equation (2) for l:
2(3w + 4) + 2w = 72
Multiply through and simplify:
6w + 8 + 2w = 72
(6 +2)w + 8 = 72
8w + 8 = 72

The length of Sally’s garden is 4 meters greater than 3 times the width. The perimeter of her garden is 72 meters
A garden is a rectangle, which has perimeter P of:
P = 2l + 2w
With P = 72, we have:
2l + 2w = 72
We're also given:
l = 3w + 4
We substitute this into the perimeter equation for l:
2(3w + 4) + 2w = 72
6w + 8 + 2w = 72

The length of the flag is 2 cm less than 7 times the width. The perimeter is 60cm. Find the length and width.
A flag is a rectangle shape. So we have the following equations
Since P = 2l + 2w, we have 2l + 2w = 60
l = 7w - 2
Substitute Equation 1 into Equation 2:
2(7w -2) + 2w = 60
14w - 4 + 2w = 60
16w - 4 = 60
Add 4 to each side
16w = 64
Divide each side by 16 to isolate w
w = 4
Which means l = 7(4) - 2 = 28 - 2 = 26

The perimeter of a rectangle is 400 meters. The length is 15 meters less than 4 times the width. Find the length and the width of the rectangle.
l = 4w - 15
Perimeter = 2l + 2w
Substitute, we get:
400 = 2(4w - 15) + 2w
400 = 8w - 30 + 2w
10w - 30 = 400
Add 30 to each side
10w = 370
Divide each side by 10 to isolate w
w = 37
Plug that back into our original equation to find l
l = 4(37) - 15
l = 148 - 15
l = 133
So we have (l, w) = (37, 133)

There are two numbers. The sum of 4 times the first number and 3 times the second number is 24. The difference between 2 times the first number and 3 times the second number is 24. Find the two numbers.
Let the first number be x and the second number be y. We have 2 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]4x + 3y = 24
[*]2x - 3y = 24
[/LIST]
Without doing anything else, we can add the 2 equations together to eliminate the y term:

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.

What pair of consecutive integers gives the following: 7 times the smaller is less than 6 times the larger?
Let x and y be consecutive integers, where y = x + 1

Substituting x, y = x + 1, we have:
7x < 6(x + 1)
7x < 6x + 6
Subtracting x from each side, we have:
x < 6, so y = 6 + 1 = 7
(x, y) = (6, 7)

When 4 times a number is increased by 40, the answer is the same as when 100 is decreased by the number. Find the number
The phrase [I]a number, [/I]means an arbitrary variable, let's call it "x".
4 times a number, increased by 40, means we multiply 4 times x, and then add 40
4x + 40
100 decreased by the number means we subtract x from 100
100 - x
The problem tells us both of these expressions are the same, so we set them equal to each other:

When 4 times a number is increased by 40, the answer is the same as when 100 is decreased by the number
The phrase [I]a number[/I] means an arbitrary variable, let's call it x.
x
4 times a number means we multiply x by 4:
4x
Increased by 40 means we add 40 to 4x:
4x + 40
100 decreased by the number means we subtract x from 100:
100 - x
The phrase [I]is the same as[/I] means equal to, so we set 4x + 40 equal to 100 - x
4x + 40 = 100 - x
Solve for [I]x[/I] in the equation 4x + 40 = 100 - x
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group variables:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our variables 4x and -x. To do that, we add x to both sides
4x + 40 + x = -x + 100 + x
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel -x on the right side:[/B][/SIZE]
5x + 40 = 100
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 40 and 100. To do that, we subtract 40 from both sides
5x + 40 - 40 = 100 - 40
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 40 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
5x = 60
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by 5[/B][/SIZE]
5x/5 = 60/5
x = [B]12[/B]
Check our work for x = 12:
4(12) + 40 ? 100 - 12
48 + 40 ? 100 - 12
88 = 88

When 54 is subtracted from the square of a number, the result is 3 times the number.

When a dog noticed a fox, they were 60 meters apart. The dog immediately started to chase the fox at

When a dog noticed a fox, they were 60 meters apart. The dog immediately started to chase the fox at a speed of 750 meters per minute. The fox started to run away at a speed of 720 meters per minute. How soon will the dog catch the fox?
The dog sits a position p.
Distance = Rate x Time
The dogs distance in minutes is D = 720t
The fox sits at position p + 60
Distance = Rate x Time
The fox's distance in minutes is D = 750t - 60 <-- Subtract 60 since the fox is already ahead 60 meters.
We want to know when their distance (location) is the same. So we set both distance equations equal to each other:
720t = 750t - 60
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=720t%3D750t-60&pl=Solve']Using our equation calculator[/URL], we get [B]t = 2[/B].
Let's check our work:
Dog's distance is 720(2) = 1440
Fox's distance is 750(2) - 60 = 1,440

Winnie earns an annual salary of $55,117. If she pays $3,715 a year in taxes and receives a paycheck

Winnie earns an annual salary of $55,117. If she pays $3,715 a year in taxes and receives a paycheck every other week, how much does Winnie receive from each paycheck?
Subtract the taxes to get Winnie's Total net pay:
Total Net Pay = Annual Salary - Annual Taxes
Total Net Pay =$55,117 - $3,715
Total Net Pay = $51,402
Now, if Winnie gets paid every other week, and there are 52 weeks in a year, then she gets paid 26 times.
Calculate single paycheck amount
Single Paycheck Amount = Total Net Pay / 26 payments
Single Paycheck Amount = $51,402 / 26
Single Paycheck Amount = [B]$1,977[/B]

You and your friend are saving for a vacation. You start with the same amount and save for the same

You and your friend are saving for a vacation. You start with the same amount and save for the same number of weeks. You save 75 per week, and your friend saves 50 per week. When vacation time comes, you have 950, and your friend has 800. How much did you start with, and for how many weeks did you save?
[U]Let w be the number of weeks. Set up two equations where s is the starting amount:[/U]
(1) s + 75w =950
(2) s + 50w = 800
[U]Rearrange (1) into (3) to solve for s by subtracting 75w[/U]
(3) s = 950 - 75w
[U]Rearrange (2) into (4) to solve for s by subtracting 50w[/U]
(4) s = 800 - 50w
[U]Set (3) and (4) equal to each other so solve for w[/U]
950 - 75w = 800 - 50w
[U]Add 75w to each side, and subtract 950 from each side:[/U]
25w = 150
[U]Divide each side by w[/U]
[B]w = 6[/B]
Now plug w = 6 into (3)
s = 950 - 75(6)
s = 950 - 450
[B]s = 500[/B]

You can get 2 different moving companies to help you move. The first one charges $150 up front then

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 have $250,000 in an IRA (Individual Retirement Account) at the time you retire. You have the option of investing this money in two funds: Fund A pays 5.4% annually and Fund B pays 7.9% annually. How should you divide your money between fund Fund A and Fund B to produce an annual interest income of $14,750?
You should invest $______in Fund A and $___________in Fund B.
Equation is x(.079) + (250,000 - x).054 = 14,750
.025x + 13,500 = 14,750
.025x = 1,250
[B]x = 50,000 for Fund A[/B]
So at 5.4%, we have 250,000 - 50,000 = [B]200,000[/B] for the other fund B.

You have saved $50 over the last two weeks and decide to treat yourself by buying some new clothes.

You have saved $50 over the last two weeks and decide to treat yourself by buying some new clothes. You go to the store and find two shirts and three pairs of jeans you like. The two shirts are buy-one-get-one half off, at $22.35 each. The three pairs of jeans are buy-two-get-one-free, at $23.70.
Tax Rate for Harmonized Sales Tax is 13%
a. What would be the total for the two shirts (don’t forget to include taxes)?
b. What would be the total for the three pairs of jeans (don’t forget to include taxes)?
c. Which would you buy and why?
a. Half of 22.35 is 11.18
So two shirts cost:
22.35 + 11.18 = 33.53
Cost with Tax of 13% is:
33.53 * 1.13 = [B]37.89
[/B]
b. Three pairs of jeans are calculated by cost of 1 pair times 2 jeans and you get the third one free:
23.70 * 2 = 47.40
Cost with Tax of 13% is:
47.40 * 1.13 = [B]53.56
[/B]
c. Calculate unit cost, which is cost per item
Unit cost of Shirts = 37.89 / 2 = [B]18.95[/B]
Unit cost of Jeans = 53.56 / 3 = [B]17.85
Buy the jeans since they have a lower unit cost[/B]

You purchase a new car for $35,000. The value of the car depreciates at a rate of 8.5% per year. If

You purchase a new car for $35,000. The value of the car depreciates at a rate of 8.5% per year. If the rate of decrease continues, what is the value of your car in 5 years?
Set up the depreciation function D(t), where t is the time in years from purchase. We have:
D(t) = 35,000(1 - 0.085)^t
Simplified, a decrease of 8.5% means it retains 91.5% of it's value each year, so we have:
D(t) = 35,000(0.915)^t
The problem asks for D(5)
D(5) = 35,000(0.915)^5
D(5) = 35,000(0.64136531607)
D(5) = $[B]22,447.79[/B]

You put $5500 in a bond fund which has an annual yield of 4.8%. How much interest will be earned in 23 years?
Build the accumulation of principal. We multiply 5,500 times 1.048 raised to the 23rd power.
Future Value = 5,500 (1.048)^23
Future Value =5,500(2.93974392046)
Future Value = 16,168.59
The question asks for interest earned, so we find this below:
Interest Earned = Future Value - Principal
Interest Earned = 16,168.59 - 5,500
Interest Earned = [B]10,668.59[/B]
