Question
In a car how many miles do you go per day? How many days until you hit 10,000 miles?
Solution 1
I drive 25 miles per day

divide the number of miles per day by the total miles to find how long it will take:

10,000 miles / 25 miles per day = 400 days

Solution 2
The Average American Driver drives 33.3 Miles per day. so take that statistic and divide it by 10,000 youll get 300 so like 10 months. but it depends on how much you drive a day, some people drive up to 88 miles a day
Question
A group consists of five men and seven women. four people are selected to attend a conference. a. in how many ways can four people be selected from this group of twelve​? b. in how many ways can four women be selected from the seven ​women? c. find the probability that the selected group will consist of all women.0
Solution 1
A.  That would be 12C4    = (12*11*10*9) / (4*3*2*1)  =   495 ways

b.   This is 7C4 = 7C3  = (7*6*5) / 6  = 35 ways

c.  This would come to 7C4 / 12C4  =  35/495 =  7/99
Question
Two cars leave towns 360 kilometers apart at the same time and travel toward each other. One car's rate is 12 kilometers per hour less than the other's. If they meet in 2 hours, what is the rate of the slower car?
Solution 1
Let x = speed of the first car

the second car is 12 km slower so the seconds car speed is x-12

they each drove 2 hours so 1st car = 2x
2nd car = 2(x-12)

they drove 360 km
so you have 2x + 2(x-12) = 360
solve for x

2x+2(x-12) = 360

2x + 2x-24 = 360

4x-24 = 360

4x = 384
x = 384/4
x = 96

1st car drove at 96 km per hour

slower car drove at 96-12 = 84 km per hour

Question
The volume of a cylinder is given by the formula v=pi r^2h, where r is the radius of the cylinder and h is the height. Which expression represents the volume of this cylinder? h=2x+7, r=x-3.
Solution 1
Substituting for r and h:-

volume = pi (x - 3)^2 *  (2x + 7)

=   pi* (2x + 7)(x^2 - 6x + 9)
= pi *  (2x^3 - 12x^2 + 18x + 7x^2 - 42x + 63)
= (2x^3 - 5x^2 - 24x + 63) pi  answer
Solution 2

The person above is correct

Question
Pratap Puri rowed 14 miles down a river in 2 ​hours, but the return trip took him 3 and one half hours. Find the rate Pratap can row in still water and find the rate of the current. Let x equals rate Pratap can row in still water and y equals rate of the current. What is the rate that Pratap rows in still​ water?
Solution 1
Let the rate in still water be x and rate of the current be y.
speed down the river is:
speed=distance/time
speed=14/2=7 mi/h

speed up the river is:
speed=(14)/(3.5)=4 mi/hr
thus total speed downstream and upstream will be:
x+y=7...i
x-y=4.......ii
adding the above equations i and ii we get:
2x=11
x=5.5 mi/hr
thus
y=5-5.5=1.5 mi/r
thus the speed in still waters is 5.5 mi/hr
speed of current is 1.5 mi/hr

Question
Find an explicit formula for the sequence 30\,,\,150\,,\,750\,,\,3750,...30,150,750,3750,...30, space, comma, space, 150, space, comma, space, 750, space, comma, space, 3750, comma, point, point, point.
Solution 1
The series shown is an geometric series and the explicit formula is given by:
an=ar^(n-1)
where
a=first term
n=number of terms
r=common ratio
from the sequence:
a=30
r=5
thus the explicit formula will be:
an=30(5)^(n-1)
an=30(5)^(n-1)
