1 1/2 feet or 1.5 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

Dave cuts a 12-foot-long streamer into 8 pieces of equal length. How long is each piece

From the question:

8 pieces = 12 feet

1 piece = x feet

Cross Multiply

8 pieces × x feet = 1 piece × 12 feet

x feet = 1 piece × 12 feet/8 pieces

x feet = 3/2 feet

x feet = 1 1/2 feet or 1.5 feet

Therefore, the length of each feet =

1 1/2 feet or 1.5 feet

None of the expressions in the options above is equivalent to −12(3−25).

Step-by-step explanation:

Which expression is equivalent to −12(3−25)?

We are given the expression:

-12(3 - 25)

= -36 + 300

None of the expressions in the options above is equivalent to −12(3−25).

The correct equivalent is -36 + 300

Question
What is the equation of a line that has a slope of 0 and goes through the point (4, 10)?
Solution 1

y =10

Step-by-step explanation:

The equation of a line in point slope form is expressed as;

y - y0 = m(x-x0)

m is the slope

(x0, y0) is the point on the line

Given

m = 0 and (x0, y0) = (4, 10)

On substituting;

y - 10 = 0(x-4)

y - 10 = 0

y = 0+10

y = 10

Hence the required equation of the line is y =10

Question
Find the missing number: 2016 · 199 = 2016·? +2016 · 98 Pls tell how you did it as well
Solution 1

101

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the expression:

2016 · 199 = 2016·? +2016 · 98

We could rewrite the expression such that the missing value equals x

2016 * 199 = 2016 * x + 2016 * 98

Using BODMAS:

401184 = 2016x + 197568

401184 - 197568 = 2016x

203616 = 2016x

Divide both sides by 2016

203616 / 2016 = 2016x / 2016

101 = x

Hence, missing value is 101

Question
Mika has 2 counters Sophia had 36 counters Sophia how many times as many counters as mila
Solution 1

Step-by-step explanation:

Mika has 2 counters.

Sophia has 36 counters.

To find out how many times the number of counters Mika is holding that Sophia has, divide Sophia's counters by Mika's counters:

= 36 / 2

= 18 times

Sophia has 18 times the number of counters that Mika has which is why when you multiply the number of Mika counters by 18, you will get the number of counters that Sophia has.

Question
If the simple interest on ​\$4,000 for 7 years is ​\$​2,250, then what is the interest​ rate?
Solution 1

8.03%

Step-by-step explanation:

If the simple interest on ​\$4,000 for 7 years is ​\$​2,250, then what is the interest​ rate?

Step one:

given data

SI= ​\$​2,250

time = 7 years

principal= ​\$4,000

Required

The rate r

Step two:

We know that

simple interest= PRT/100

substitute

2250= 4000*R*7/100

cross multiply

4000*7*R= 2250*100

28000R=225000

divide both sides by  28000

R=225000/28000

R=8.03%
