A Middleweight UFC fighter weighs between 170 lbs and 185 lbs.

A Middleweight UFC fighter weighs between 170 lbs and 185 lbs.
Let w be the UFC fighter's weight:
We have a compound inequality.
Right side includes 185 lbs. because between means includes 185lbs.
Left side includes 170 lbs. because between means includes 17lb0s
[B]170 <= w <= 185[/B]

A mother gives birth to a 10 pound baby. Every 2 months, the baby gains 5 pounds. If x is the age of the baby in months, then y is the weight of the baby in pounds. Find an equation of a line in the form y = mx + b that describes the baby's weight.
If the baby gains 5 pounds every 2 months, then they gain 5/2 = 2.5 pounds per month. Let x be the number of months old for the baby, we have:
The baby starts at 10 pounds. And every month (x), the baby's weight increases 2.5 pounds. Our equation is:
[B]y = 2.5x + 10[/B]

A mother gives birth to a 6 pound baby. Every 4 months, the baby gains 4 pounds. If x is the age of

A mother gives birth to a 6 pound baby. Every 4 months, the baby gains 4 pounds. If x is the age of the baby in months, then y is the weight of the baby in pounds. Find an equation of a line in the form y = mx b that describes the baby's weight.
The baby gains 4 pounds every month, where x is the number of months since birth. The baby boy starts life (time 0) at 6 pounds. So we have
[B]y = 4x + 6[/B]

A mother gives birth to a 7 pound baby. Every 3 months, the baby gains 2 pounds. If x is the age of

A mother gives birth to a 7 pound baby. Every 3 months, the baby gains 2 pounds. If x is the age of the baby in months, then y is the weight of the baby in pounds. Find an equation of a line in the form y = mx + b that describes the baby's weight.
Every month, the baby gains 2/3 of a pound. So we have:
[B]y = 2/3x + 7
[/B]
The baby starts off with 7 pounds. So we add 7 pounds + 2/3 times the number of months passed since birth.

A package that is heavier than 11 lbs and 8 oz will have a label that says HEAVY on it. Gloria packe

A package that is heavier than 11 lbs and 8 oz will have a label that says HEAVY on it. Gloria packed 6 flowerpots to send to her customers. Each of the flowerpots weighs 1 lb and 12 oz. The packing material weighs 5 oz. Will her package be labeled as HEAVY?
Calculate weight of flowerpots:
Flowerpot weight = Weight per flowerpot * number of flowerpots
Flowerpot weight = 1 lb 12 oz * 6
Flowerpot weight = 6 lb and 72 oz
Since 72oz = 72/16 = 4 lbs and 8 oz, we have:
Flowerpot weight = 6 lb 8 oz + 4 lbs and 8 oz = 12 lb 16 oz
Since 16oz = 1 lb, we have:
13lb
Add in the 5 oz of packing material, we have:
13lb 5 oz
Since this is greater than 11lb 8oz, the package [B]will be labeled as HEAVY[/B]

A typical human adult weighs 150 pounds, while a human newborn weighs approximately 7 pounds. An adult female Western Grey Kangaroo weighs about 30 kilograms and gives birth to babies who are approximately one gram. If human babies were proportionally the same weight as adults as Western Grey Kangaroos babies, how much would a human newborn weigh?
Set up a proportion of adult weight to baby weight where n is the weight of a human baby:

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:
p < [B]18[/B]

An elevator can safely lift at most 4400 1bs. A concrete block has an average weight of 41 lbs. What is the maximum number of concrete blocks that the elevator can lift?
Total blocks liftable = Lift Max / Weight per block
Total blocks liftable = 4400 / 41
Total blocks liftable = 107.31
We round down to whole blocks and we get [B]107[/B]

An elevator has a maximum weight of 3000 pounds. How many 150-pound people can safely ride the elevator? (Use "p" to represent the number of people)
Maximum means less than or equal to. We have the inequality:
150p <= 3000
To solve this inequality for p, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/interval-notation-calculator.php?num=150p%3C%3D3000&pl=Show+Interval+Notation']type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:

At Priscilla's school, the final grade for her Calculus course is weighted as follows: Tests: 50% Quizzes: 30% Homework: 20% Priscilla has an average of 87% on her tests, 100% on her quizzes, and 20% on her homework. What is Priscilla's weighted average?
Weighted Average gives weights to each percent of the average as follows:
Weighted Average = Average * weighting percent
Weighted Average = Test Average * Test Weighting + Quiz Average. * Quiz Weighting + Homework Average * Homework Weighting
Weighted Average = 87% * 50% + 100% * 30% + 20% * 20%
Weighted Average = 43.5% + 30% + 4%
Weighted Average = [B]77.5%[/B]

Rose weighs 140 pounds and gains 10%. What percent of her new weight must she lose to get back to 14

Rose weighs 140 pounds and gains 10%. What percent of her new weight must she lose to get back to 140 pounds?
Find her new weight after the 10% gain:
New Weight = Starting Weight * (1 + 10%)
Since 10% is 0.1, we have:
New Weight = Starting Weight * (1 + 0.1)
New Weight = Starting Weight * (1.1)
Plug in our numbers:
New Weight = 140 * (1.1)
New Weight = 154
To get back to 140, Rose must lose 154 - 140 = 14 pounds.
As a percentage of her new weight, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/perc.php?num=14&den=154&pcheck=1&num1=16&pct1=80&pct2=70&den1=80&idpct1=10&hltype=1&idpct2=90&pct=82&decimal=+65.236&astart=12&aend=20&wp1=20&wp2=30&pl=Calculate']we type 14/154 into our search engine[/URL], and get:

[I]We read this as, Rose must lose 9.09% of her current body weight of 154 pounds to get back to her starting weight of 140 pounds.[/I]

Stella buys one carton of juice. The carton holds 130 fl oz. She fills 5 glasses with juice from the carton. Each glass holds 8 fl oz. How much fl oz is left in the carton?
First, we find out how much juice was poured into glasses from the carton:
Poured Juice Weight = Glasses of Juice * Ounces per glass
Poured JuiceWeight = 5 * 8
Poured JuiceWeight = 40
Next, we subtract the poured out juice weight from the full carton weight to find out the leftover amount:
Leftover Juice = Carton Weight when full - Poured Juice Weight
Leftover Juice = 130 - 40
Leftover Juice = [B]90 oz[/B]

Suppose that the weight (in pounds) of an airplane is a linear function of the amount of fuel (in ga

Suppose that the weight (in pounds) of an airplane is a linear function of the amount of fuel (in gallons) in its tank. When carrying 20 gallons of fuel, the airplane weighs 2012 pounds. When carrying 55 gallons of fuel, it weighs 2208 pounds. How much does the airplane weigh if it is carrying 65 gallons of fuel?
Linear functions are written in the form of one dependent variable and one independent variable. Using g as the number of gallons and W(g) as the weight, we have:
W(g) = gx + c where c is a constant
We are given:
[LIST]
[*]W(20) = 2012
[*]W(55) = 2208
[/LIST]
We want to know W(65)
Using our givens, we have:
W(20) = 20x + c = 2012
W(55) = 55x + c = 2208
Rearranging both equations, we have:
c = 2012 - 20x
c = 2208 - 55x
Set them both equal to each other:
2012 - 20x = 2208 - 55x
Add 55x to each side:
35x + 2012 = 2208
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=35x%2B2012%3D2208&pl=Solve']equation solver[/URL], we see that x is 5.6
Plugging x = 5.6 back into the first equation, we get:
c = 2012 - 20(5.6)
c = 2012 - 112
c = 2900
Now that we have all our pieces, find W(65)
W(65) = 65(5.6) + 2900
W(65) = 264 + 2900
W(65) = [B]3264[/B]

The weight of water is approximately 2 pounds 3 ounces per litre. How much will 8 litres of water we

The weight of water is approximately 2 pounds 3 ounces per litre. How much will 8 litres of water weigh?
First, convert 2 pounds 3 ounces to ounces.
16 ounces to a pound, so we have:
2(16) + 3
32 + 3
35 ounces for one liter
For 8 litres, we have:
35 * 8 = 280 ounces
Now, convert that back to pounds
280/16 = [B]17.5 pounds, or 17 pounds, 8 ounces.[/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
