**Answer 1**

An order of magnitude is the class of scale of any amount in which each class contains values of a fixed ratio to the class preceding it. Usually, the amount scaled is 10, and the scale is the exponent applied to this amount.

**Question 5**

The weight of each car is 3,000 pounds. There are 5 cars in total. Therefore, the total weight is given to be:

[tex]\Rightarrow3000\times5=15000\text{ pounds}[/tex]

Writing the calculated weight in standard form, scaling to 10, we have:

[tex]15000=1.5\times10^4[/tex]

**Therefore, ****the order of magnitude is 4****.**

**Question 6**

The number of people that voted per county is 20,000. There are 7 counties in total. Therefore, the total number of people that voted is:

[tex]\Rightarrow20000\times7=140000[/tex]

Writing the calculated number in standard form, scaling to 10, we have:

[tex]140000=1.4\times10^5[/tex]

**Therefore, ****the order of magnitude is 5****.**

State the restrictions and then simplify:(16x^2+ 8x + 1)/(4x+ 1)²

### Answers

We are given the following expression:

[tex]\frac{16x^2+8x+1}{(4x+1)^2}[/tex]

We are asked to find the restrictions for this expression. The restrictions for a fractional expression is that the denominator must be different to zero, that is mathematically like this:

[tex](4x+1)^2\ne0[/tex]

Now we solve for "x", first by taking square root on both sides:

[tex](4x+1)\ne0[/tex]

Now we subtract 1 on both sides:

[tex]\begin{gathered} 4x+1-1\ne-1 \\ 4x\ne-1 \end{gathered}[/tex]

Now we divide both sides by 4:

[tex]\begin{gathered} \frac{4x}{4}\ne-\frac{1}{4} \\ x\ne-\frac{1}{4} \end{gathered}[/tex]

This means that the domain of the expression is restricted to values of "x" different from -1/4. Now we will simplify the expression by factoring the numerator

We factor the numerator using the perfect square trinomial method. We take the square root to the first and third terms of the denominator, and rewrite it like this:

[tex]16x^2+8x+1=(4x+1)^2[/tex]

Replacing this in the expression we get:

[tex]\frac{16x^2+8x+1}{(4x+1)^2}=\frac{(4x+1)^2}{(4x+1)^2}=1[/tex]

Therefore the expression is equivalent to 1.

If each side of an equilateral triangle is 2 inches long, then what is the area of the triangle?

### Answers

** Solution**:

The image below represents the equilateral triangle of 2 inches long

From the triangle above, the given values include

[tex]\begin{gathered} a=2in \\ b=2in \\ c=2in \end{gathered}[/tex]

**Concept**:

To calculate the area of the triangle, we will use **Heron's formula** below

[tex]\begin{gathered} A=\sqrt[]{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)} \\ \text{where,s = semi perimter} \\ s=\frac{a+b+c}{2} \end{gathered}[/tex]

**Step 1**:

Calculate the **semi perimeter s**

[tex]\begin{gathered} s=\frac{a+b+c}{2} \\ s=\frac{2in+2in+2in}{2} \\ s=\frac{6in}{2} \\ s=3in \end{gathered}[/tex]

**Step 2**:

Substitute the value of s,a,b,c in the heron's formula

[tex]\begin{gathered} A=\sqrt[]{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)} \\ A=\sqrt[]{3(3-2)(3-2)(3-2)} \\ A=\sqrt[]{3\times1\times1\times1} \\ A=\sqrt[]{3} \\ A=1.73in^2 \end{gathered}[/tex]

**Hence,**

**The area of the triangle = 1.73 squared inches**

Part 1Carson is g year old Haley is 2 yrs younger than Carson. find the sum of their ages in terms of gPart 2Find some of their ages in "g" years time, in terms of g

### Answers

**Part 1**

Carson is "g" years old.

Haley is 2 years younger than Carson, you can express her age as "g-2"

To sum their ages you have to add both expressions:

[tex]\begin{gathered} \text{AgeCarson}+\text{AgeHaley} \\ g+(g-2) \end{gathered}[/tex]

To simplify the expression, you have to erase the parentheses and add the like terms, i.e., add both "g-terms"

[tex]\begin{gathered} g+g-2 \\ 2g-2 \end{gathered}[/tex]

The sum of their ages in terms of g is: **Age(g)=2g-2**

**Part 2**

You need to find some of their ages, this means that you have to choose any value for "g" and determine the age of Carson and Haley

For example:

*For g=10 years:*

Carson's age: g= 10 years-old

Haley's age: g-2=10-2= 8 years-old

The sum of their ages is: 2g-2=(2*10)-2= 20-2= 18 years

*For g=15 years:*

Carson's age: g= 15 years-old

Haley's age: g-2= 15-2= 13 years-old

The sum of their ages is: 2g-2= (2*15)-2= 30-2= 28 years

Barry spent 1/5 of his monthly salary for rent and 1/7 of his monthly salary for his utility bill. If $1012 was left, what was his monthly salary?

### Answers

**Given:**

1/5 of Barry's salary was going for his rent.

1/7 of Barry's salary was going for his utility bill.

1012 dollars was left after all the payments.

**Required:**

What was his monthly salary?

**Explanation:**

Let us assume that Barry's monthly salary is 'x'

So the sum of his payments and the balance amount will give us his total salary.

[tex]total\text{ }salary=rent\text{ }payment+utility\text{ }payment+money\text{ }left[/tex]

Now Barry uses 1/5 of his salary in rent, that is

[tex]\begin{gathered} rent\text{ }payment=\frac{1}{5}\times his\text{ }total\text{ }salary \\ \\ rent\text{ }payment=\frac{1}{5}\times x \end{gathered}[/tex]

Barry uses 1/7 of his salary in utility bill, that is

[tex]\begin{gathered} utility\text{ }bill=\frac{1}{7}\times his\text{ }total\text{ }salary \\ \\ utility\text{ }bill=\frac{1}{7}\times x \end{gathered}[/tex]

And after all the payments the money he is left with is 1012 dollars.

[tex]money\text{ }left=1012[/tex]

Now let's calculate his total salary

[tex]\begin{gathered} total\text{ }salary=rent\text{ }payment+utility\text{ }bill+money\text{ }left \\ \\ x=\frac{1}{5}\times x+\frac{1}{7}\times x+1012 \\ \\ x=\frac{x}{5}+\frac{x}{7}+1012 \\ \\ x=\frac{7x+5x}{35}+1012 \end{gathered}[/tex]

Simplifying it further we get

[tex]\begin{gathered} x=\frac{12x}{35}+1012 \\ \\ x-\frac{12x}{35}=1012 \\ \\ \frac{35x-12x}{35}=1012 \\ \\ \frac{23x}{35}=1012 \end{gathered}[/tex][tex]\begin{gathered} 23x=1012\times35 \\ \\ 23x=35420 \\ \\ x=\frac{35420}{23} \\ \\ x=1540 \end{gathered}[/tex]

x = 1540 dollars

**Final Answer:**

Barry's monthly salary is 1540 dollars.

Given:Circle B with tangent AD and tangent DC. Arc AC has a measure of 85. What is the relationship between m

### Answers

**Answer:**

**They are supplementary**

**Explanation:**

If AD is tangent to circle B, then the measure of ∠BAD is 90°. In the same way, if DC is tangent to circle B, the measure of ∠DCB is 90°.

So, we can complete the graph as:

Then, the sum of the interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°, so we can calculate the m∠ADC as:

m∠ADC = 360 - 90 - 90 - 85

m∠ADC = 95°

Now, the sum of m∠ABC and m∠ADC is equal to:

m∠ABC + m∠ADC = 85 + 95 =180

Since the sum is 180, we can say that ∠ABC and ∠ADC are supplementary angles.

you are pouring canned soda into a cylinder cylinder that is 12 cm tall and a diameter of 6.5 cm The picture is 36 cm tall and has a diameter of 20 cm how many cans of soda will the picture hold

### Answers

We are going to assume that the picture of 36 tall and has a diameter of 20 cm is also a cylinder.

To answer this question, we need to know *the formula to find the volume of a cylinde*r:

[tex]V_{\text{cylinder}}=\pi\cdot r^2\cdot h[/tex]

Where

• r is the radius of the base of the cylinder.

,

• h is the height of the cylinder.

,

• pi = 3.14159265358979...

From the question, we have:

The dimensions of the first cylinder are:

h = 12cm

D = 6.5cm.

*Since the radius of a circle is half of its diameter, then, we have that the radius of this cylinder is 6.5cm/2 = 3.25cm.*

Then, r = 3.25cm.

Then, the volume of this cylinder is:

[tex]V_{\text{cylinder}}=\pi\cdot(3.25\operatorname{cm})^2\cdot12\operatorname{cm}=\pi\cdot10.5625\operatorname{cm}\cdot12\operatorname{cm}=126.75\pi cm^3[/tex]

Now, *we need to find the volume of the cylinder of the picture following the same procedure:*

h = 36cm

D = 20cm ---> r = D/2 ---> r = 20cm/2 ---> r = 10cm

[tex]V_{\text{cylinderpicture}}=\pi\cdot(10\operatorname{cm})^2\cdot36\operatorname{cm}=\pi\cdot100\operatorname{cm}^2\cdot36\operatorname{cm}[/tex]

Then, we have that the volume of the cylinder of the picture is:

[tex]V_{\text{cylinderpicture}}=3600\pi cm^3[/tex]

Thus, *we have that we poured a canned soda into a cylinder of 147pi cm^3. How many cans of soda will hold the cylinder of the picture? We need to divide the total volume of the cylinder of the picture by the volume of the first cylinder (the one which contains the canned soda).* Then, we have:

[tex]N_{\text{cannedsoda}}=\frac{V_{\text{cylinderpicture}}}{V_{\text{cylinder}}}=\frac{3600\pi cm^3}{126.75\pi cm^3}\Rightarrow N_{cannedsoda}=28.402367[/tex]

Therefore, **the cylinder of the picture will hold about 28.40 canned sodas.**

8 G Find the area of the shaded area. Round your answer to the nearest tenth

### Answers

**Answer: **

47.1 units^2

**Explanation: **

The area of the shaded region is equal to the area of the bigger circle minus the area of the smaller circle.

Now, the area of a circle is given by

[tex]A=\pi r^2[/tex]

where r is the radius of the circle.

The radius of the bigger circle is r = 8; thereofre, the area is

[tex]\begin{gathered} A=\pi(8)^2 \\ A=64\pi \end{gathered}[/tex]

And the radius of the smaller circle is r = 7; therefore, the area is

[tex]A=\pi(7)^2[/tex][tex]A=49\pi[/tex]

The area of the shaded region is the difference between the two areas above:

[tex]Area=64\pi-49\pi[/tex][tex]\text{Area}=15\pi[/tex]

[tex]\text{Area}=15(3.1415)[/tex]

Rounded to the nearest tenth the answer is
