# The sum of the squares of two consecutive odd positive integers is 74. Find the integers.

Answer: Let first odd number be x

Then that would be . We need to solve for x.

But we need positive integers so we would have , so then our integers would be x, x+2 = 5, 7

Check work:

5² + 7² = 25 + 49 = 74.

So our integers would be 5 and 7.

Hope this helps.
Answer: Let’s use a sample set.
Let’s use 5 and 7.
5•5=25
7•7=49
49+25=74
The integers are 5 and 7. The way I found this was by thinking of 9 and 11 at first. I knew that it would be entirely way too much, but 3 and 1 would be too little. 5 and 7 fit in the middle of those two samples.

C. $7.00 Step-by-step explanation: 8 times 7 is 56 + 5 = 61 Jimmy purchased a government bond which has maturity value of$2500 after 9 months at 11 % simple interest. How much should he pay for this bond?

Answer: he should pay $23095 for this bond. Step-by-step explanation: We would apply the formula for determining simple interest which is expressed as I = PRT/100 Where I represents interest paid on the bond purchased. P represents the principal or amount of bond purchased. R represents interest rate T represents the duration of the bond in years. From the given information, R = 11% T = 9 months = 9/12 = 0.75 I = 25000 - P Therefore 25000 - P = (P × 11 × 0.75)/100 25000 - P = 8.25P/100 = 0.0825P P + 0.0825P = 25000 1.0825P = 25000 P = 25000/1.0825 P =$23095

Answer:$2706.25 Step-by-step explanation: Principal(t)=$2500

Time(t)=9months=9/12=0.75year

Rate(r)=11%

Simple interest(si)=?

Si=(pxrxt)/100

Si=(2500x11x0.75)/100

Si=20625/100

Si=$206.25 Total amount=p + si Total amount=2500+206.25 Total amount=$2706.25

A shipment to a warehouse consists of 500 PS4. The manager chooses a random sample of 50 PS4 and finds that 3 are defective. How many PS4 in the shipment are likely to be defective?

30 PS4 in the shipment are likely to be defective

Step-by-step explanation:

We take the estimate from the sample and estimate to all the PS4 in store. This means that we can solve this question using a rule of 3.

From the sample of 50 PS4, 3 are defective. How many are expected to be defective out of 500?

50PS4 - 3 defective

500 PS4 - x defective

30 PS4 in the shipment are likely to be defective
