How many arrangements are possible using the letters in the word fuzzy if each letter "z" is distinctly different than the other? how many arrangements are possible if the letter "z" is interchangeable with the other? explain your reasoning?
Solution 1

Case 1: If the letter z is distinctly different

If we have the letter z which is distinctly different than the other "z", then we have five letters in the word F U Z Z Y and the number of arrangements would be = 5*4*3*2*1 =5! = 120 different arrangements

Case 2: If the letter Z is interchangeable

If the letter "Z" is interchangeable with the other "z" then we have 2 letters which cancel out each other that would be represented by 2*1 = 2! = 2

So, the number of arrangements in this case would be 5!/2! = 5*4*3*2*1/2*1 = 60 arrangements

Solution 2
120, 60
First answer is 5!, second answer is 5!/2 because swapping two z's does not generate a new permutation.
Question
The​ U-Drive Rent-A-Truck company plans to spend ​$15 million on 310 new vehicles. Each commercial van will cost ​$35 comma 000 ​, each small truck ​$70 comma 000 ​, and each large truck ​$60 comma 000 . Past experience shows that they need twice as many vans as small trucks. How many of each type of vehicle can they​ buy?
Solution 1
Let x, y, and z be number of vans, small trucks and large trucks respectively. Therefore,
x+y+z = 310 ----- (1)

But, the company will spend \$15 million. Then,
35000x+ 70000y +60000z = 15,000,000
35x + 70y + 60z = 15000 ---- (2)

Additionally, twice as many van as small trucks will be required. Then,
x = 2y ---- (3).

Substituting for x in (1) and (2);
2y +y +z = 310 => 3y +z =310 ---- (4)
35(2y) + 70y + 60z = 15000 => 70y+70y+60z = 15000 => 140y + 60z = 15000 ---- (5)

Solving (4) and (5)
From (4), z = 310 -3y
Then, using (5)
140y +60(310-3y) = 15000
140y + 18600 - 180y = 15000
-40y = -3600
y = 3600/40= 90
Then, z= 310 -3y = 310 -3(90) = 310 -270 = 40
And, x = 2y = 2(90) = 180

Therefore, the number will be:
Vans (x) = 180
Small trucks (y) = 90
Large  trucks (z) = 40

Question
A 10ft pole is to be erected and held in the ground by four wires attached at the top. The guy wires are attached to the ground at a distance of 15 ft from the base poke. What is the exact length of each guy wire? how much wire should be purchased if it cannot be purchased in franctions of foot
Solution 1
The pole, guy wire and ground forms a right angled triangle with the guy wire being the hypotenuse.
Legs = 10 ft and 15 ft.

The length of guys wire = Sqrt (10^2+15^2) = ≈18.03 ft

A total of 4 guy wires.
Te total length required = 4* ≈ 72.11 ft.

Since wire cannot be bought in fractions of foot, the length is rounded to the next whole number. That is,

Length required = 73 ft.
Question
James has 16 balloons.1/4 of his balloons are red.How many red balloons does he have?
Solution 1
Hello!

First you have to convert the fraction to a decimal

1/4 = 0.25

Multiply the amount of balloons by the amount that are red

16 * 0.25 = 4

Hope this helps!
