# In Miami the number of highway accidents increased by 20% over a four year period. How many accidents were there in 2013 if there were 5,120 in 2009?

x/5120=1/5
5120/5=1024
1024+5120=6144
6144 is the answer.

Hector waters his lawn if it does not rain at least 1 1/2 inches each week. It has already rained 3/8 inch this week. Which inequality represents the number of inches of rain, r, still needed so Hector does not have to water his lawn this week?A. r ≥ 1 7/8

B. r > 1 7/8

C. r ≥ 1 1/8

D. r > 1 1/8

(The fractions are mixed numbers!!!!)

the answer is C

Step-by-step explanation:

this is because he needs at least 1 1/2, it's already rained 3/8 inches, so to simplify the equation change 1 1/2 to 1 4/8 which is still equivalent to 1 1/2, then subtract 3/8 from 1 4/8 which will give you 1 1/8. now here is where it gets kind of tricky, both C and D seem to have 1 1/2, but the difference between them is the symbols > and ≥ are CRUCIAL!!!! (">" means that the number at the left is greater than the number at the right while "≥" means that the number at the left is greater than OR EQUAL TO the number at the right) so as you can see you also need to pay attention to what the text says, because it is mention quote on quote "Hector waters his lawn if it does not rain at least 1 1/2 inches each week," this means that if it's not at least (in other words the same as or more) 1 1/2 inches of rain a week, he will water his plants

Solve for x: x^2 + 14x + 49

Step-by-step explanation:

This is a question on root of quadratic equation. The interpretation of the question

x² 14x + 49 is

x² + 14x + 49 = 0.meaning that we are to find two possible values for x that will make the expression equal 0.

We can use any of the methods earlier taught. For the purpose of this class, I am using factorization methods

x² + 14x + 49 = 0

Now, find the product of the first and the last terms, is

x² × 49 = 49×²

Now find two terms such that their productbis 49x² and their sum equals 14x, the one in the middle.

We have several factors of 49x² but only one will give sum of 14x. Because of the time, I will only go straight to the required factors .

49x² = 7x × 7x and the sum gives 14x the middle terms..

Now we now replace the middle one by the factors and then factorize by grouping.

x² + 14x + 49 = 0

x² + 7x + 7x + 49 = 0

x(x + 7) + 7(x + 7) = 0

(x + 7)(x + 7). = 0

Now to find this value of x,

x + 7 = 0

x. = -7twice.

The root of the equation = -7twice.

Which homophone best completes the sentence? Though I prefer to eat fruit, I enjoy vegetables ________. your you’re too two

Though I prefer to eat fruit, I enjoy vegetables too.

A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same as another word but differs in meaning.

### What are some examples of homophones?

Homophones may consist of two or more words, although pairs are more common than three or more words that sound the same. Examples of homophones that have three words are to, too, and two, and their, there, and they're.

here, we have,

Too rhymes with fruit. Two wouldn’t make sense because that’s a number. Your and you’re just do not make sense.

Suppose that 30% of all students who have to buy a text for a particular course want a new copy (the successes!), whereas the other 70% want a used copy. Consider randomly selecting 15 purchasers.The bookstore has 10 new copies and 10 used copies in stock.
If 15 people come in one by one to purchase this text, what is the probability that all 15 will get the type of book they want from current stock?

The probability that all 15 will get the type of book they want from current stock is 0.4838.

Step-by-step explanation:

Denote the random variable Xas the number of students who want to buy new copy.

The probability of a student wanting to buy a new copy is, P (X) = p = 0.30.

A random sample of n = 15 students is selected.

The random variable X follows a Binomial distribution.

The probability function of a Binomial distribution is:

It is provided that the bookstore has 10 new copies and 10 used copies in stock.

All the 15 students get their desired copy, then this can happen if at most 10 want to buy new copy and at least 5 wants to buy used copy.

Compute the probability of (5 ≤ X ≤ 10) as follows:

P (5 ≤ X ≤ 10) = P (X = 5) + P (X = 6) + P (X = 7) + P (X = 8) + P (X = 9) + P (X = 10)

Thus, the probability that all 15 will get the type of book they want from current stock is 0.4838.
