Wouldn't you divide? If so, 5/9 = 0.6

Solution 2

The ratio would be 1:1.8 (1 to 1.8).

This can be found by dividing 5 by 5 ( making the ratio say 1 to...) and dividing 9 by 5 giving you 1.8. Thus makin* the ratio 1:1.8 or 1 to 1.8.

I hope this helps!

Question
I NEED HELP STAT PLZ PLZ PLZ Betty has between $40$ and $50$ pennies that she wants to arrange in a rectangular array. She notices she can arrange the pennies in three different ways without any gaps or spaces. However, if Betty adds two more pennies to her collection, she can only arrange the pennies in one way without any gaps or spaces: a straight line. How many pennies does Betty have?
Solution 1
If she adds two pennies, she can only arrange the pennies in a straight line.
A straight line is one penny wide. If she adds two pennies she ends up with a prime number of pennies.

Since she has between 40 and 50 pennies, she can have 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47 ,48, or 49  pennies.

41 + 2 = 43 prime
42 + 2 = 44 not prime
43 + 2 = 45 not prime
44 + 2 = 46 not prime
45 + 2 = 47 prime
46 + 2 = 48 not prime
47 + 2 = 49 not prime
48 + 2 = 50 not prime
49 + 2 = 51 not prime

Only 43 and 47 are prime.
That means she has 41 or 45 pennies.
41 is prime, so it cannot be arranged in any other way than a straight line 1 by 41.
Let's look at 45.

45 = 3 * 3 * 5

45 = 9 * 5 = 3 * 15 = 45 * 1

She has 45 pennies.

Question
A cone with radius 2 feet and height 8 feet is shown.
Solution 1
The correct question is
What is the volume of a cone (in cubic feet) with a radius of 2 feet and a height of 8 feet?
Use 3.14 for π. Round your answer to the nearest hundredth

we know that
volume of a cone=(1/3)*pi*r
²*h
r=2 ft
h=8 ft
volume of a cone=(1/3)*pi*2²*8-----> 33.49 ft³

the answer is
33.49 ft³

Question
ANNA AND ALICE SHARE A RECTANGLE BEDROOM THAT IS 18 FEET LONG AND 14 FEET WIDE. THEY SPLIT THE ROOM INTO TWO HALVES BY PLACING A PIECE OF TAPE FROM THE NORTHWEST CORNWR OF THE ROOM TO THE SOUTHEAST CORNWR OF THE ROOM. WHT IS THE AREA OF EACH GIRLS HALF OF THE ROOM
Solution 1
First, you have to find the area of the WHOLE bedroom.
Equation: 18 × 14 = 252.

The total area of the bedroom is 252^2 feet.

Finally, divide.

252 ÷ 2 =  126.

The area of each of the sections is 126.

Question
the original value of an investment is $1,800. if the value has increased by 7% each year, write an exponential to model the situation. then, find the value of the investment after 15 years
Solution 1
For this case we have an equation of the form:
 y = A (b) ^ t
 Where,
 A: initial amount
 b: growth rate
 t: time
 Substituting values we have:
 y = 1800 * (1.07) ^ t
 For 15 years we have:
 y = 1800 * (1.07) ^ 15
 y = 4966.256773 $
 Answer:
 
An exponential to model of the situation is:
 
y = 1800 * (1.07) ^ t
 
the value of the investment after 15 years is:
 
y = 4966.256773 $
Question
Solve the equation <(a-5)-5=3
Solution 1
The first step for solving the equation (a - 5) - 5 = 3 is to remove the parenthesis.
a - 5 - 5 = 3
Calculate the difference between -5 and 5.
a - 10 = 3
Now move the constant to the right side of the equation and change its sign.
a = 3 + 10
Add the numbers on the right side together to get your final answer.
a = 13
