QUESTION POSTED AT 10/10/2019 - 09:38 AM

Increase by 28% means original+28% of original

28% of original is 0.28 times original

so

original+0.28 times original=1 times original+0.28 times original

undistribute original

original(1+0.28)

original(1.28)

so multiply it by 1.28 to incrase by 28%

28% of original is 0.28 times original

so

original+0.28 times original=1 times original+0.28 times original

undistribute original

original(1+0.28)

original(1.28)

so multiply it by 1.28 to incrase by 28%

c. This budget can be modified by reducing the amount spent on food and clothes, thereby reducing overall expenses to have the maximum amount of money for fixed expenses and maintaining a positive actual net income.

You can't reduce fixed expenses. These are expenses that are constant every month like rent expense, utility payments, and cell phone plan. The only expenses you can reduce are food and clothes. These expenses are called variable expenses meaning the amount of these expenses varies. Thus, it can be manipulated.

Tip = 12% × bill

$28 = tip + bill

$28 = bill + 12% × bill

$28 = bill (1 + 12%)

bill = $28÷(1+12%) = $25

$28 = tip + bill

$28 = bill + 12% × bill

$28 = bill (1 + 12%)

bill = $28÷(1+12%) = $25

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/10/2019 - 08:05 AM

This is the concept of algebra, to solve the expression we proceed as follow;

m-=2+m

this can be written as:

-m=2+m

-m-m=2

-2m=2

multiply both sides by -1/2

-1/2(-2m)=2*(-1/2)

m=-1

the answer will therefore be m=-1

m-=2+m

this can be written as:

-m=2+m

-m-m=2

-2m=2

multiply both sides by -1/2

-1/2(-2m)=2*(-1/2)

m=-1

the answer will therefore be m=-1

**Answer: The required percent increase is 5.3%. **

**Step-by-step explanation: **We are given to find the **percent increase if your salary went from $95 to $100 per week.**

The percent increase will be equal to **the increment in the salary divide by the old salary multiplied by 100%.**

The **increment in the salary** is given by

**Therefore, the percent increase is given by**

Rounding to **nearest tenth, we get**

**Percent increase = 5.3%.**

**Thus, the required percent increase is 5.3%. **

Using the Theorem of Pythagoras (a² + b² = c²)

Put in the values:

12² + 12² = 28²

Is it correct? (solve)

**Nope**! Because 12² + 12² = 288, and the square root of 288 is about 17, not 28.

The answer is**no, 12cm, 12cm, 28cm cannot form a triangle.**

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/10/2019 - 07:07 AM

The first step is to find the CHANGE. This is done by subtracting the two values and taking the absolute value. Next step is to find the ratio of the change to the original and multiplying by 100% to make it a percentage.

So;

a) change = Ι60 - 25Ι = 35.

ratio of change to original = 35:25,

multiplying by 100% will give 35/25 × 100% = **140%.**

** **Hence it is a **140%** INCREASE.

b) change = | 30 - 66 | = 36

the ratio is 36:66

multiplying by 100% = 36/66 × 100% = 0.545454... ×100% ≈ **54.5%**

** ** Hence it is a **54.5% **DECREASE.

Well from the equation $45.50 represents y (in this case) and now you're finding x.

y = 7x

45.50 = 7x Divide both sides of the equation by 7 to find x.

45.50/7 = 7x/7

**6.50** = x

**Hence **she worked 6.5 hours (or 6 hours 30 minutes.)
