QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 04:17 AM

Andres uses mental mrh and his knowledge of multiplication to solve 167 ÷ 8. Andre knows that 8 x 20=160. Andre then subtracts 167 - 160=7. How can Andre use this information to find the quotient?

Andre can use this information because 7 cannot go into 8 evenly, and 8 can go into 167 20 times, because 20 x 8 = 160

Therefore, 167/8 is 20 remainder 7

QUESTION POSTED AT 23/09/2019 - 04:15 AM

Can somebody help me solve this quadratic equation? 12x^2+14x=0 Solve for x

The equation you want to use is

x = (-b +/- sqrt( b^2 - 4ac))/2a

So, ax^2 + bx + c = 0

x = (-14 +/- sqrt((14^2) - 4(12)(0)))/2(12)

x = (-14 +/- sqrt((196 - 0)))/24

x = (-14 +/- sqrt(196))/24

x = -14/24 +/- (sqrt(196)/24)

x = -14/24 +/- 14/24

-x/8<-1/2 solve each inqequality

-x/8<-1/2. Use the reverse order of operations to solve this. So, as both sides are negative, multiply them by -1 to get you to x/8>1/2, as multiplying by a negative flips the symbol. Solve that by multiplying 1/2 to 8/1. Multiply the numerators and denominators, to give you 8/2. Simplified, x>4

divide each side by 115
x=19
there are 19 club members going on the trip.
