If side a = 3 and b = 4 what is the length of leg c in a right triangle using the
pythagorean theorem?


Answer 1

Answer: 5

Step-by-step explanation: Leg A + Leg B= Leg C

9+16=25 the square of 25 is 5

Answer 2


5 = c

Step-by-step explanation:

pythagorean theorem is simply a^2 + b^2 = c^2

so a=3 and b=4 so we plug them in

3^2 + 4^2 = c^2

which is

9 + 16 = c^2


25 = c^2

then we take the square root for the answer!!

sqrt(25) = sqrt(c^2)

5 = c

A state lottery randomly chooses 8 balls numbered from 1 through 37 without replacement. You choose 8 numbers and purchase a lottery ticket. The random variable represents the number of matches on your ticket to the numbers drawn in the lottery. Determine whether this experiment is binomial. If​ so, identify a​ success, specify the values​ n, p, and q and list the possible values of the random variable x.


Answer: No, the experiment is not binomial

Step-by-step explanation:

From the formula for a binomial distribution :

nCx * p^k * q^(n - x)

n = number of trials (fixed)

x = number of success on trial

p = probability of success (which is the same for each trial).

q = (1 - p) = probability of failure (same for each trial)

Binomial experiment have binary outcome ; Either Success or Failure

The experiment described above :

Number of trials is satisfied (8 picks)

Binary outcome (matches on ticket or match does not exist).

Car a travels 15 miles while car b travels 26 miles what is the ratio of car a to car b


Answer: 15:26

Step-by-step explanation:

Given: Car a travels 15 miles while car b travels 26 miles.

Now, the ratio of the distance traveled by car a to car b is given by :-

[tex]\dfrac{\text{15 miles}}{\text{26 miles}}=\dfrac{15}{26}[/tex] , which is the fraction in the simplest as highest common factor of 15 and 26 =1.

So, the the ratio of the distance traveled by car a to car b = 15:26

Hence, the ratio of car a to car b = 15:26

Remember that a line segment is the portion of a straight line that directly connects two given points. Unlike a line, it does not extend off to infinity in both directions. To find the length, we just use the distance formula between the two points provided.


Find the distance between (-2,8) and (-7,-5). Said another way, find the length of the line segment between points (-2,8) and (-7,-5).

First, find the distance between the x-coordinates. To do this, subtract one number from the other and then take its absolute value.

We have: |-2-(-7)| = |5| = 5.

Then repeat with the y-coordinates.

We have: |8-(-5)| = |13| = 13.

NOTE: It does NOT matter which way you subtract the numbers because the absolute value of the answer would be the same anyway.

Finally, to compete the length (or distance), square BOTH values, add them, and take the square root. Here's the first part:

[tex]5^{2}[/tex]  +  [tex]13^{2}[/tex]  = 25  +  169  =  194

Taking the square root of 194 and rounding to TWO decimal places, we get a distance of 13.93:

[tex]\sqrt(194)[/tex]  =  13.93

By the way, what you are actually doing is using the Pythagorean Theorem on an imaginary right triangle with the line joining the two lines being the hypotenuse.

The general formula for distance between two points is the following:  [tex]\sqrt{x^2+y^{2}[/tex]  , where x and y are the change in x and y between the two points.

-13 = r/9 + 8

r =

r equals what




Step-by-step explanation:

you're just trying to get the r alone. so you have to subtract the 8 and multiply the nine. you're just reversing the problem.

Triangle ABC will be dilated according to the rule

[tex]D_{F, 0.25} (x,y)[/tex], where point F is the center of dilation.

What will be the coordinates of vertex A' of the image?

a. (-8,-4)

b. (-2,-1)

c. (0, 0)

d. (1, 0)

The answer is (1,0), but could someone explain how you get it, please?


Usually dilations have a center of dilation at the origin (0,0). When this occurs all we need to do is multiply each coordinate by the dilation scale. Unfortunately things get a little more complicated when the center of dilation is not at the origin.

In this case the center of dilation is located at F: (3,1)

The first step we must take is to find how many units point F is from vertex A.

In this case, F is 4 unit up and 8 units right of vertex A. (Reference the first image below to see how I found this)

Now we must multiply these dimensions (4 units and 8 units) by the factor of dilation (0.25)

4 * 0.25 = 1

8 * 0.25 = 2

This shows us how many dimensions away point [tex]A^{1}[/tex] is from point F:

1 unit vertically

2 units horizontally

Now how do we know if [tex]A^{1}[/tex] is above or below, left or right from point F? Easy! There has been no translations so the directions will be the same as the original:

Point F: (3, 1) ---> (3-2, 1-1) ---> (1, 0)

Reference the second image to see this

Hopefully this helps and makes sense. Let me know if you need further explanation or clarification.

Jason and Henry go to the movie theater and purchase refreshments for their friends. Jason spends a total of $66.75 on 12 drinks and 1 bag of popcorn. Henry spends a total of $82.50 on 3 drinks and 10 bags of popcorn. Write a system of equations that can be used to find the price of one drink and the price of one bag of popcorn. Using these equations, determine and state the price of popcorn, to the nearest cent.



The cost of one drink is $5

Step-by-step explanation:





A department store purchases screen-printed t-shirts at a cost of $5 per shirt. They mark up the price 150% (making the selling price 250% of the store's purchase price) and put them on the sales floor. Every month that a t-shirt doesn't sell, the store reduces the selling price by 25%.Which expression shows the selling price after one monthly price reduction?



Kindly check explanation

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Cost price = $5 per T - shirt

Markup = 150% or cost price

Every month which shirt doesn't sell, selling price drops by 25%

Selling price of Tshirt = (150% * $5) = $7.5

Price after 1 month = (100% - 25%) * $7.5 = $5.625

Hence, the equation could be expressed as :

Price after one month:

(1.5 * $5) - 0.75 * (1.5 * $5)

7.5 - 0.75(7.5)


($5)(2.50) – ($5)(2.50)(0.25)

Charlene Langhorst's gross weekly salary is $680. Her federal withholding is $101.62. Her employer takes out the standard rates for FICA (Social Security/Medicare). The state tax is 1.5% of gross pay. Each week she pays $32.40 for medical insurance. What are Charlene's total weekly deductions? *



Total deductions =  $196.24

Step-by-step explanation:

Gross weekly salary = $680

federal holding = $101.62

FICA standard rate = 7.65% of gross earnings

= 7.65% of $680 = 0.0765 × 680 = $52.02

∴ FICA deductions = $52.02

state tax = 1.5% of gross pay = 1.5% of $680

state tax = 0.015 × 680 = $10.2

∴ state tax = $10.2

Medical insurance = $32.40

Total Deductions = 101.62 + 52.02 + 10.2 + 32.40 = $196.24

I cannot figure out how to solve this, we did not cover it in class today and it is on tonights homework.



x = 32.5

y = 65

Step-by-step explanation:

y = 65 degrees

65 and y are the base angles in an isosceles triangle ( single lines)  so they are equal

y+z = 180 since they form a straight line

65+z = 180

z = 180-65

z = 115

The second triangle is also an isosceles triangle so the base angles are the same as shown by x

180 = x+x+z

180 =2x+ 115

65 = 2x

Divide by 2

x = 32.5
