Given Bernard weighs 7.5 pounds at birth.The question is asking us to assume that  Bernard development proceeds normally.We need to find Bernard birth after a year.

It is observed that birth of a child triples or is thrice (3 times ) the weight at birth.As Bernard is weighing 7.5 pounds so he will triple or be 3times of this weight.

Bernard weight after a year= 3x7.5=22.5 pounds.

If the perimeter of a rectangle is 52 cm and the area is 165 square cm, then what are the dimensions of the rectangle?
Solution 1


  11 cm by 15 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

The perimeter is double the sum of length and width, so that sum is 26 cm. The area is the product of length and width, so you want to find two numbers whose product is 165 and whose sum is 26.

  165 = 1·165 = 3·55 = 5·33 = 11·15

The numbers in the last factor pair total 26. These are the dimensions.

The dimensions are 11 cm by 15 cm.

Assuming boys and girls are equally​ likely, find the probability of a couple having a baby boy boy when their fourth fourth child is​ born, given that the first three three children were all boys all boys.
Solution 1
I am assuming the gender of each child is independent of the other.

Then the information about the first three children is irrelevant.

So then the probability of fourth child being boy is 1/2, since 
boys and girls are equally​ likely.

Hope this helps.
A tank initially contains 40 ounces of salt mixed in 100 gallons of water. a solution containing 4 oz of salt per gallon is then pumped into the tank at a rate of 5 gal/min. the stirred mixture flows out of the tank at the same rate. how much salt is in the tank after 20 minutes ?
Solution 1

The amount of salt that is in the tank after 20 minutes is;

A(20) = 267.56 Oz

  • We are given;

Initial amount of salt in tank; A(0) = 40 Ounces

A solution containing 4 oz salt per gallon is pumped into the tank at a rate of 5 gal/min.

This means rate in oz/min = 4/1 × 5/1 = 20 oz/min

  • Now, the rate at which the initial amount in the tank changes will be;

A'(t) = 20 - [(A(t)/(100)) × 5/1]

A'(t) = 20 - A(t)/20

Rearranging gives;

A'(t) + A(t)/20 = 20

  • Since this is a linear equation, the integrating factor will be; e^{t/20}

Multiplying through by the integrating factor gives;

A'(t) e^{t/20} + (A(t)/20) e^{t/20} = 20e^{t/20}

  • Thus, the solution will be;

A(t) e^{t/20} = 400e^{t/20}  + C

Divide through by e^{t/20} to get;

A(t) = 400 + C e^{-t/20}

At initial condition of A(0) = 40, we have;

40 = 400 + C

C = -360

Thus; at time (t), the amount of salt left is given by;

A(t) = 400 - 360 e^{-t/20}

  • After 20 minutes;

A(20) = 400 - 360 e^{-20/20}

A(20) = 400 - 132.44

A(20) = 267.56 Oz

Read more at;

Solution 2
Let A(t) be the amount of salt in the tank at time t. We're given that A(0)=40. The rate at which this amount changes is given by

A'(t)=\dfrac{5\text{ gal}}{1\text{ min}}\cdot\dfrac{4\text{ oz}}{1\text{ gal}}-\dfrac{5\text{ gal}}{1\text{ min}}\cdot\dfrac{A(t)\text{ oz}}{100+(5-5)t\text{ gal}}






Since A(0)=40, we get

40=400+C\implies C=-360

so that the amount of salt at time t is


After 20 minutes, the tank contains

A(20)=400-360e^{-20/20}\approx267.56\text{ oz}
The life of a certain brand of battery is normally distributed, with mean 128 hours and standard deviation 16 hours. what is the probability that a battery you buy lasts at most 100 hours? standardize the variable. x = 100 is equivalent to z =
Solution 1

We have been given that

mean, \mu = 128

standard deviation \sigma = 16


Let us evaluate the z score using the below mentioned formula


On substituting the given values, we get

z=\frac{100-128}{16} \\

Thus, the value of z is -1.75.

Now, we find the probability that a battery you buy lasts at most 100 hours.

We will find the value for z= -1.75 using the z score table.

P(z=-1.75)= .04006

Hence, the required probability is 0.04006

Solution 2
-1.75 is the answer.
The population standard deviation of the numbers 3, 8, 12, 17, and 25 is 7.563 correct to 3 decimal places. what happens if each of the five numbers is multiplied by 3
Solution 1
Let's figure this out as though we have no idea what the answer would be.

Step One
Find the new five numbers.
3*3, 8*3, 12*3, 17*3, 25*3
9 , 24 , 36, 51, 75

Step 2
Find the average
(9 + 24 + 36 + 51 + 75)/5 = 195/5 = 39

Step 3
Subtract the individual numbers from the average
(39 - 9) = 30
(39 -24) = 15
(39 - 36) = 3
(39 - 51) = - 12
(39 - 75) = -36

Step 4 
Square the results from Step 3
30^2 = 900
15^2 = 225
3^2 = 9
(-12)^2 = 144
(-36)^2 = 1296

Step 5
Take the average of the results from step 4
(900 + 225 + 9 + 144 + 1296)/5
2574 / 5 = 514.8

Step 6
Take the square root of the result from step 5
deviation = sqrt(514.8)
deviation = 22.689

Step seven 
Compare the two standard deviations.
s2/s1 = 22.689 / 7.563 = 3

If you are given 1 set of numbers to find a population standard deviation and you multiply each member by a, then the result will be a * the standard population deviation of the first set of numbers.

Your calculator will do this as well, but you have to know how to enter the data into your calculator. That requires that you follow the directions carefully.

Suppose that the demand equation for a certain item is 1p+1x2−160=0. evaluate the elasticity at 65:
Solution 1

The required value of elasticity at x = 65 is -0.007.

Given that,

The demand equation for a certain item is 1p + 1x^{2} -160 = 0.

We have to determine,

The value of elasticity at 65.

According to the question,

The price elasticity of demand is calculated as the percentage change in quantity divided by the percentage change in price.


Price of elasticity = \frac{dp}{dx}

Calculate change by differentiation with respect to p:

\dfrac{d(p+x^{2} -160)}{dx}\\\\1 + 2x\frac{dp}{dx} = 0\\


E(x) = \frac{dp}{dx} = \frac{-1}{2x}

Therefore, The elasticity at x = 65 is ,

E(65) = \frac{-1}{2(65)} = -0.007

Hence, The required value of elasticity at x = 65 is -0.007.

For more information about Elasticity click the link given below.

Solution 2
Price elasticity is defined as \frac{\Delta(quantity)}{\Delta(price)}.

Here, the question has omitted to define variables, so we will ASSUME
and we're given

We calculate
\delta{x}/\delta{p} by implicit differentiation with respect to p:
1+2x (dx/dp)=0

Therefore the price elasticity at x=65 is
E(65)=1/(2*65) =-1/130 (approximately -0.00769)

Number of per month__number of moviegoers more than 7____________96 5-7_______________ ___180 2-4__________________219 less than 2____________205 total _________________700 Use the frequency table. Find the probability that a person goes to the movies at least 2 times a month. Round to the nearest thousandth. A. 0.138 B. 0.707 C. 0.137 D. 0.394 sorry for the poor graph up top,,,,:/
Solution 1


B. 0.707

Step-by-step explanation:

The frequency table is given by,

Number of months                         Number of movie goers

     More than 7                                                96                  

           5 - 7                                                      180

           2 - 4                                                      219

      Less than 2                                               205

           Total                                                     700

Since, Probability of an event is the ratio of favorable events to the total number of events.

As, the number of people going to movies atleast 2 times a month = 96 + 180 + 219 = 495

The probability that a person goes to the movies atleast 2 times a month = \frac{495}{700}=0.707.

Thus, option B is correct.

Solution 2
Leave out those who went less than twice to get those who went at least twice 
pr = (700 - 205)/700 = 0.7071 <-------

So answer is B

Solve for y in terms of x. 2/3y - 4 = x Please help . Time is critical for me in school rn
Solution 1



Step-by-step explanation:

We are given


Since, we have to solve for y

so, we will isolate y on anyone side

Firstly, we add both sides by 4



Multiply both sides by 3

3\times \frac{2}{3}y=3\times(x+4)


now, we can divide both sides by 2

and we get
