PJ's Goal was to bike 120 1/4 miles. At the end of the week he found that he actually biked 120 miles. Which athlete was closer to making their goal? Explain

MINH:
subtract what was actually biked from his goal

= 125 1/2 - 125 1/6
convert to like denominators

= 125 3/6 - 125 1/6

= 2/6
simplify

= 1/3 or 0.3333333

PJ:
= 120 1/4 - 120

= 1/4 or 0.25

ANSWER: PJ came closer to his goal because 1/4 (or 0.25) is closer to zero which makes it a smaller number than 1/3 (or 0.33).

Hope this helps!  :)

Question
7r. r represents a fraction which value of r makes the expression equal a number less than 7? 4/4 or 4/3 or 4/5 or 4/1
Solution 1
Multiply 7 by each of the fractions to find the solution that is less than 7

= 7 * 4/4
= (7*4)/4
= 28/4
= 7

= 7 * 4/3
= (7*4)/3
= 28/3
= 9 1/3

= 7 * 4/5
= (7*4)/5
= 28/5
= 5 3/5

= 7 * 4/1
= (7*4)/1
= 28/1
= 28

ANSWER: The fraction that gives a solution less than 7 is 4/5. 4/5 multiplied by 7 is 5 3/5.

Question
Elaina ran 2.52 miles on Monday, 4.53 miles on Wednesday, and 3.45 miles on Saturday. What percent of the total miles did Elaina run on Monday?
Solution 1
2.52+4.53+3.45=10.5 miles

(Monday/total miles)*100%
=(2.52/10.2)= 24%
Question
Find 2r2 + 3s3 − r2 + 4t2 − r2 if r = −2, s = −3, and t = 5.
Solution 1
2 x -2 x 2 = -8
+ 3 x -3 x 3 = -9
- (-2) x 2 = -4
+ 4 x 5 x 2 = 40
- (-2) x 2 = -4

So then -8 + (-9) - (-4) + 40 - (-4) = 31

Solution 2

Question
A remote-control airplane descends at a rate of 2 feet per second. After 3 seconds it is 67 feet above the ground. Write the equation in point-slope form that models the situation. Then, find the height of the plane after 8 seconds.
Solution 1
A] A remote-control airplane descends at a rate of 2 feet per second. After 3 seconds it is 67 feet above the ground.
the point slope equation will be given as follows:
y-y1=m(x-x1)
where:
slope,m=2 ft/sec
(x1,y1)=(3,67)
thus plugging in the values in the formula, we obtain the point slope equation as follow:
y-67=2(x-3)

y-67=2(x-3)

b]The height of the plane after 8 seconds will be:
x=8 sec
but:
y-67=2(x-3)
substituting x=8 we get:
y-67=2(8-3)
y-67=2(5)
y=10+67
y=77
thus the height after 8 seconds is 77 ft
Question
there are 200 end of the school year dance tickets available students who have perfect attendance are able to personage them in advance if 18 tickets were purchased in advance then what percent of the tickets were purchased in advance
Solution 1

The percentage of the tickets for the dance that were purchased in advance is 9%.

### What is the percentage of the tickets that were bought in advance?

Percentage is the fraction of an amount that is expressed as a number out of hundred. The sign used to represent percentage is %.

Percent of advance tickets bought = (number of advance tickets / total number of tickets) x 100

(18 / 200) x 100 = 9%

Solution 2
9 percent because 18 divided by 200 is 0.09 or 9 percent.
