If three out of every fourteen trick-or-treaters that came to your house last Halloween were dressed as pirates, what proportion of trick-or-treaters were not dressed as pirates?


Answer 1



Given that three out of every fourteen trick-or-treaters were dressed as pirates

The proportion of the tick-or-treaters that were not dressed as pirates is the subtraction of the proportion of the people d

Dressed as pirates = 3/14

Not dressed as pirates = 14/14 - 3/14

= 11/14

AC2  =  AB2 + BC2     --->     AC2  =  122 + 52     --->   AC  =  13

AD / AB  =  AB / AC     --->     AD / 12  =  12 / 13     --->     AD  =  144/13

DC  =  AC - AD     --->   DC  =  13 - 144/13     --->     DC  =  25/13

AD / DB  =  DB / DC     --->   DB2  =  AD · DC     --->     DB2  =  (144/13) · (25/13)  --->     DB  =  60/13

DB is the geometric mean of AD and DC.

Find the probability for choosing a letter at random from the word: Probability P(not P) A.) 1/11 B.) 2/11 C.) 5/11 D.) 10/11​



D.) 10/11

Step-by-step explanation:

Here the given word Probability has 11 letters in it. And we have to calculate the Probability of not selecting a letter P from the above word.

So the formula for calculating any probability is Total Favorable outcomes / Total number of outcomes.

Here total number of outcomes are 11 as word Probability has 11 letters.

So the probability of selecting letter P from word Probability =  (1)/(11)

Now the P(not P) = 1 - P(selecting letter P)

                            = 1 - (1)/(11) = (10)/(11)

Un recipiente cilíndrico tiene un diámetro de 160cm. y la misma altura. ¿Cuánto litros de agua puede caber?



3215360 cm³

Explicación paso a paso:

Dado que :

Radio = 160/2 = 80 cm

Altura, h = 160 cm

Volumen de un cilindro = πr²h

Volumen del cilindro = π * 80² * 160

Volumen = 3215360 cm³
