15,236 2q in

Step-by-step explanation:

step 1

1/2 bh = 1/2 (44 in)(64 in)

= 1/2 (2,816 sq in)

= 1,408 sq in.

2 x 1,408 sq in = 2,816 sq in.

step 2

end rectangle area

lw = (68 in)(69 in)

= 4,692 sq in

2 x 4,692 sq in = 9,384 sq in

Now find the area of the middle rectangle

lw - (69 in) (44 in) = 3,039 sq in.

then add all the areas together

A light bulb consumes 1440 watt hours per day. How many watt hours does it consume in 3 days and 12 hours?

Answer: it consumes 5040 watt hour in 3 days and 12 hours

Step-by-step explanation:

light bulb consumes 1440 watt hours per day. The number of hours in a day is 24. This means that the consumption of the light bulb per hour would be

1440/24 = 60 watt hour.

The consumption for 12 hours would be

60 × 12 = 720 watt hour.

The consumption for 3 days would be

3 × 1440 = 4320 watt hour

The total consumption in 3 days and 12 hours would be

4320 + 720 = 5040 watt hour

5040 watts i think

Step-by-step explanation:

1440 X 3  = 4320        24 / 12 = 2

1440 /  2 = 720

4320 + 720 = 5040

In a jar there are 3 yellow candies, 3 blue candies, and 2 orange candies. What percent of the jar is filled with orange candies?​

Answer: 25 percent of the jar is filled with orange candies

Step-by-step explanation:

In the jar, there are 3 yellow candies, 3 blue candies, and 2 orange candies. This means that the total number of candies inside the jar would be the sum of the yellow, blue and orange candies. It becomes

3 + 3 + 2 = 8 candies.

The percent of the jar filled with orange candies would be expressed as

number of orange candies/total number of candies × 100

It becomes

2/8 × 100 = 25%

A factory bought a new machine. It is not configured well yet, so the probability of defects is 0.05. Estimate the probability that there are at most 2 spoiled details in the random sample of 20.

Pr(at most 2 are defective) = 0.38

Step-by-step explanation:

probability of defective = 0.05

probability of not  defective =1- 0.05 = 0.95

Pr(at most 2 are defective) = pr (0 defective) +  pr (1 defective) + pr (2defective)

pr (0 defective) = (0.05^0) * (0.95^20) = 0.36

pr (1 defective) =  (0.05^1) * (0.95^19) = 0.019

pr (2 defective) =  (0.05^2) * (0.95^18) = 0.0025 * 0.397 = 0.00099

Pr(at most 2 are defective) =  0.36 +  0.019 +  0.00099

Pr(at most 2 are defective) = 0.37999 = 0.38

A family has j children with probability pj , where p1 = .1, p2 = .25, p3 = .35, p4 = .3. A child from this family is randomly chosen. Given that the child is the eldest child in the family, find the conditional probability that the family has

A) the conditional probability that the has only 1 child = 0.24

B) The conditional probability that the family has only 4 children = 0.18

Step-by-step explanation:

To answer the questions, we first start with defining each event. Let E be the event that the child selected is the oldest and let Fj be the event that the family has j children.

From this, we can deduce that the probability that the child is the oldest, given that there is j children is ; P(E | Fj ) = 1/j.

In addition, we know P(Fj ) = pj as given in the problem. In answering the 2 questions, we seek the probability P(Fj | E). Thus, by the Bayes’s formula;

P(Fj | E) = P(EFj )/P(E) which gives;

P(Fj | E) = {P(E | Fj )P(Fj )} / {Σ(4,i=1)P(E | Fj )P(Fj )}

= (1/j)/ Σ(4,i=1)(1/j)pj

= ((pj)/j) / {p1 + (p2)/2 + (p3)/3 +(p4)/4}

Therefore, the conditional probability that the family has only 1 child; P(F1 | E) = p1 / {p1 + (p2)/2 + (p3)/3 +(p4)/4} = 0.1/ (0.1 + (0.25/2) +(0.35/3) + (0.3/4) = 0.1/0.4167 = 0.24

The conditional probability that the family has only 4 children =

{(p4)/4} / {p1 + (p2)/2 + (p3)/3 +(p4)/4} = (0.3/4)/ (0.1 + (0.25/2) +(0.35/3) + (0.3/4) = 0.075/0.4167 = 0.18

An environmental group at a local college is conducting independent tests to determine the distance a particular make of automobile will travel while consuming only 1 gallon of gas. They test a sample of five cars and obtain a mean of 28.2 miles. Assuming that the standard deviation is 2.7 miles, find the 95 percent confidence interval for the mean distance traveled by all such cars using 1 gallon of gas.

Step-by-step explanation:

Confidence Interval

When the population standard deviation is known, the formula for a confidence interval for a population mean is:

Where n is the sample size and z is the corresponding z-value from the standard normal distribution for the selected confidence level. The value of z for a 95% confidence interval is z=1.96. The rest of the values are

Or, equivalently

Can y = sin(t2) be a solution on an interval containing t = 0 of an equation y + p(t) y + q(t) y = 0 with continuous coefficients? Explain your answer.

Step-by-step explanation:

y = sin(t^2)

y' = 2tcos(t^2)

y'' = 2cos(t^2) - 4t^2sin(t^2)

so the equation become

2cos(t^2) - 4t^2sin(t^2) + p(t)(2tcos(t^2)) + q(t)sin(t^2) = 0

when t=0, above eqution is 2. That is, there does not exist the solution. so y can not be a solution on I containing t=0.

387 in base 10 to base 5

Answer: 387 in base 10 to base 5 is 3022

Step-by-step explanation:

To convert 387 in base 10 to base 5, we would take the following steps

Firstly , we would divide the number to be converted by 5. The remainder forms the last digit of the number in base 5 while the quotient is divided again to get a new quotient and remainder. The new remainder forms the next digit to the left of the last digit. It continues till it gets to zero. Therefore,

387/5 = 77 remainder 2(last digit)

77/5 = 15 remainder 2(next digit to the left of the last).

15/5 = 3 remainder 0(next digit to the left)

3/5 = 0 remainder 3(next and final digit to the left)

Therefore, 387 in base 10 to base 5 is 3022

3022

Step-by-step explanation:

To convert a number from base 10 to base 5, divide the number repeatedly by 5, keeping track of each remainder, until you get a quotient that is equal to zero

Next, write all the remainders in reverse order.

387₁₀ = 3022₅

Check:

387 = 3×5³ + 0×5² + 2×5¹ + 2×5⁰

387 = 3×125 + 0×25 + 2×5 + 2×1

387 = 375 + 0 + 10 + 2

387 = 387

OK.

Find the probability that a randomly selected multiple birth for women​ 15-54 years old involved a mother who was at least 40 years old. ​P(at least ​40

Age Number of Multiple Births

15–19 100

20–24 467

25–29 1620

30–34 2262

35–39 1545

40–44 328

45–54 105

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

Total. 6427

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

Probability of selecting a mother who is at least 40 years old is 0.067.

That means there are 6.7% of the the total mothers who are at least 40 years old.

Step-by-step explanation:

The question is looking for probability of a mother at least 40 years.

It means 40 years and above.

From the table, the number of mothers who fall into this category = 328 +105 = 433

So, the probability would be = 433/6427 = 0.067

Therefore, converting to percentage, we have 6.7%

Step-by-step explanation:

Total number of women with ages from 15 to 54years (15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,51,52,53,54)= 40

Total number of women with age 40 years and above = 15

Probability of picking a mother of age greater than 40 = 15/40 which is equal to 3/8.

Find a possible exponential function in y = a · bx (y=a(b)^x) form that represents the situation described below. Has an initial value of 2 and passes through the point (3, 128).

y = 2 · 4ˣ

Step-by-step explanation:

Initial value of 2 means that a = 2.

y = 2 · bˣ

It passes through the point (3, 128), so:

128 = 2 · b³

64 = b³

b = 4

y = 2 · 4ˣ

Karen, 28 years old and a single taxpayer, has a salary of \$33,000 and rental income of \$33,000 for the 2019 calendar tax year. Karen is covered by a pension through her employer. AGI phase-out range for traditional IRA contributions for a single taxpayer who is an active plan participant is \$64,000 – \$74,000. a. What is the maximum amount that Karen may deduct for contributions to her traditional IRA for 2019?

\$4,800

Step-by-step explanation:

The maximum contribution for traditional IRA in 2019 = \$6000

Given that;

karen has a salary of \$33,000 and rental income of \$33,000; then total income = \$66,000

AGI phase-out range for traditional IRA contributions for a single taxpayer who is an active plan participant is \$64,000 – \$74,000.

PhaseOut can be calculated as:

=

= 0.2 * 6000

= 1200

Therefore, the  maximum amount that Karen may deduct for contributions to her traditional IRA for 2019 = The maximum contribution for traditional IRA in 2019 - PhaseOut

= \$6000 - \$1,200

= \$4,800

Let's say you take an exam worth 240 points and your score marked the 78th percentile of all the exam scores. Based on this you can conclude that ______% of exam takers had scores equal to or better than yours.

Here, we are required to determine what percentage of exam takers had scores equal to or better than mine.

The correct answer is therefore, 22%

First, a percentile is a statistical term used to represent each of the 100 equal groups into which a population can be divided according to the distribution of values of a particular variable, (in this case the scores).

Therefore, according to the definition above, Since my score marked the 78th percentile, we can conclude that only (100 - 78)% of the exam takers had scores equal to or better than mine.
