## PLEASE HURRYIn the diagram of circle O, what is the measure of ∠ABC?I WILL GIVE BRAINLIEST

The measure of angle ABC is 34°

Step-by-step explanation:

we know that

The measurement of the outer angle is the semi-difference of the arcs it encompasses.

so

∠ABC=(1/2)[major arc AC-minor arc AC]

∠ABC=(1/2)[major arc AC-146°]

Find the measure of major arc AC

major arc AC=360°-146°=214°

substitute

∠ABC=(1/2)[214°-146°]=34°

## In the equation x=y^3 - 10, is y a function of x?

No

Step-by-step explanation:

If y is a function of x, then the equation would be written as a "y =" equation, not an "x = " equation.  This example is one where x is a function of y.

## Quadrilateral EFGH was dilated by a scale factor of 2 from the center (1, 0) to create E'F'G'H'. Which characteristic of dilations compares segment E'F' to segment EF? A segment that passes through the center of dilation in the pre-image continues to pass through the center of dilation in the image. A segment in the image has the same length as its corresponding segment in the pre-image. A segment that passes through the center of dilation in the pre-image does not pass through the center of dilation in the image. A segment in the image is proportionally longer or shorter than its corresponding segment in the pre-image.

Answer: A segment in the image is proportionally longer or shorter than its corresponding segment in the pre-image.

Step-by-step explanation:

• A dilation is a transformation that maps an image that is the similar to the actual shape .

i.e. It creates images of same shape but of different size.

A dilation stretches or shrinks a shape by using the scale factor and about the fixed center of the dilation.

Given : Quadrilateral EFGH was dilated by a scale factor of 2 from the center (1, 0) to create E'F'G'H'.

Then Quadrilateral EFGH must be similar to E'F'G'H'.

It means sides of Quadrilateral EFGH must be proportional to sides of Quadrilateral E'F'G'H'.

Hence, the correct characteristic of dilation compares segment E'F' to segment EF is :

A segment in the image is proportionally longer or shorter than its corresponding segment in the pre-image.

## Using the linear combaination method what is the solution to the system of linear equations 7x-2y=-20and9x+4y=-6

x=-2  y=3

Step-by-step explanation:

7x-2y=-20

9x+4y=-6

Multiply the first equation by 2

2(7x-2y) = 2 * -20

14x - 4y = -20

Add this to the second equation

14x - 4y = -40

9x+4y=-6

--------------------------

23x = -46

Divide by 23

23x/23 = -46/23

x = -2

Now we solve for y

9x+4y=-6

9(-2) +4y = -6

-18 + 4y = -6

-18+18 +4y = -6+18

4y = 12

Divide by 4

4y/4 = 12/4

y=3

## 1) Emily wants to create snack bags for a trip she is going on. She has 6 granola bars and 10 pieces of dried fruit. If the snack bags should be identical without any food left over, what is the greatest number of snack bags Emily can make? Write answer in sentence form.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : The number of granola bars = 6

The number of pieces of dried fruit = 10

If the snack bags should be identical without any food left over, then the greatest number of snack bags Emily can make is the greatest common factor (GCF) of 6 and 10.

Since , factors of 6 = 1, 2, 3, 6

Factors of 10 = 1, 2, 5, 10

Hence, the greatest common factor of 6 and 10 = 2

Thus, the greatest number of snack bags Emily can make = 2.

## Richard wants to buy a LCD flat panel monitor measuring 14 inches by 16 inches. What is the measure of the diagonal of the monitor? (JUSTIFY)

21.26 inches.

Step-by-step explanation:

It can be inferred that the shape of the monitor is a rectangle, in which the length of the monitor is 16 inches and the height of the monitor is 14 inches. The diagonals of the rectangle cut it into two congruent right-angled triangles. Therefore, to find the length of the diagonal of the monitor, use the Pythagoras Theorem. Since the base (b) is 16 inches and the perpendicular (p) is 14 inches, the distance of the hypotenuse (i.e. the diagonal, denoted by h) can be found by the following formula:

Plugging in the values:

Simplifying gives:

Taking square root on both sides gives:

h = 21.26 inches (to the nearest 2 decimal places)

Therefore, the measure of the diagonal is 21.26 inches!!!

## Determine if the graph is symmetric about the x-axis, the y-axis, or the origin. r = 4 - 4 cos θ

to run a symmetry test on a polar, we can simply do a few ( r , θ ) replacements, if the equation resulting from the replacements, resembles the original, then it has that symmetry type, now, let's recall the symmetry trigonometry identity, cos(-θ) = cos(θ).

## Brianna is graphing the function f(x)=x^2+6x+5. what x intercepts should brianna use to graph f(x)

x = - 5, x = - 1

Step-by-step explanation:

To find the x- intercepts let f(x) = 0, that is

x² + 6x + 5 = 0 ← in standard form

Consider the factors of the constant term (+ 5) which sum to give the coefficient of the x- term ( + 6)

The factors are + 5 and + 1, since

5 × 1 = 5 and 5 + 1 = + 6, hence

(x + 5)(x + 1) = 0 ← in factored form

Equate each factor to zero and solve for x

x + 5 = 0 ⇒ x = - 5 ⇒ (- 5, 0 )

x + 1 = 0 ⇒ x = - 1 ⇒ (- 1, 0)

## A simple random sample of 60 is drawn from a normally distributed population, and the mean is found to be 28, with a standard deviation of 5. Which of the following values is within the 95% confidence interval (z-score = 1.96) for the population mean? Remember, the margin of error, ME, can be determined using the formula ME=z*s/square root n. The value of 26, because it’s not greater than 26.7 and less than 29.3. The value of 27, because it’s greater than 26.7 and less than 29.3. The value of 32, because it’s greater than 23 and less than 33. The value of 34, because it’s not greater than 23 and less than 33.

The value of 27, because it’s greater than 26.7 and less than 29.3.

Step-by-step explanation:

You should find the confidence Interval at 95%

The formula to apply is;

C.I= x±z*δ/√n

where C.I is the confidence interval, x is the mean of the sample, z is the z* value from the standard normal distribution for 95% confidence interval, δ is the standard deviation and n is the sample size

Substitute values in the formula

Find δ/√n

Calculate z*δ/√n

C.I= 28±1.2652

Upper limit is = 28+1.2652=29.2625

Lower limit is =28-1.2652=26.7348

Solution

The value 27 is within 95% confidence interval because it is greater than 26.7 and less than 29.3

## A white tailed deer can sprint at speeds up to 30 miles per hour. American bison can run at speeds up to 3,520 feet per minute. Which animal is faster and by how many per hour? There are 5,280 feet in one mile

American Bison

Step-by-step explanation:

First find out how many feet the bison runs in an hour.

To find that out you have to multiply 3520 by 60 minutes because there are 60 minutes in an hour.

So 3520*60 = 211,200 feet

Then you have to convert 211,200 feet into miles and since there are 5,280 feet in an a mile you have to divide.

So 211,200 divided by 5,280 = 40

So the American Bison runs 40 miles per hour which is faster than the White Tailed Deer who only runs 30 miles per hour.

So the answer is the American Bison.

## Assignment Active Finding the Total Cost of a Purchase Clothing price (100%) $26.50 Added tax (5%) Darrien purchases some clothes for a total of$26.50, before tax. Sales tax in his state is 5 percent. What is the total price he has to pay for the clothes? Step 1: (Original Price)(Tax Percent) = Amount of Tax Total cost Step 2: Original Price + Amount of Tax = $1) Intro Mathematics 24/02/2020 04:41 AM answersmine Answer:$27.83

Step-by-step explanation:

(Original Price)(Tax Percent) = Amount

Remember to turn the percent into decimal form first!

(26.50)(0.05) = 1.325

Do not round the results until you are done solving the problem!

(Original Price) + (Amount Tax) = $(26.50) + (1.325) = 27.825 Round the results now!$27.83

## I don’t get this question

This is a right triangle and to solve this you must use Pythagorean theorem:

a and b are the legs (the sides that form a perpendicular/right angle)

c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)

In this case...

a = 60

b = x

c = 65

^^^Plug these numbers into the theorem

simplify

3600 + = 4225

Now bring 3600 to the right side by subtracting 3600 to both sides (what you do on one side you must do to the other). Since 3600 is being added on the left side, subtraction (the opposite of addition) will cancel it out (make it zero) from the left side and bring it over to the right side.

3600 - 3600 + = 4225 - 3600

0 + = 625

= 625

To remove the square from x take the square root of both sides to get you...

x = √625

x = 25

(option C)

Hope this helped!
