You are buying potato chips at the grocery store. You have a manufacturers coupon for a $1.00 off and the store is offering 20% off if you buy 2 bags. You decide to buy 2 bags of potato chips. How do you compute your final cost? A. Subtract $1.00 off each bag and then multiply by .20 B. Multiply each bag by .20, subtract $1.00 off of each bag, and then add them together. C. Add the two bags together, multiply by .80, and then subtract $1.00. D. Subtract $1.00 from the first bag, then add them together, and then multiply by .80.

Answer:

The correct option is:   C.  Add the two bags together, multiply by .80, and then subtract $1.00.

Step-by-step explanation:

First you need to add the prices of two bags for getting the total sales price.

Now, the store is offering 20% off, that means you need to pay 80% of the total sales price. For finding the amount, we need to multiply the total sales price by 0.80

Then, you have a manufacturers coupon for a $1.00 off. So, for fining the final price, you need to subtract that $1.00 from the last result.

Thus, the correct option will be......

C. Add the two bags together, multiply by .80, and then subtract $1.00.

If a polynomial is divided by (x-a) and the remainder equals zero then (x -a) is a factor of the polynomial. true or false

The Factor theorem states that  for any polynomial f(x) if f(c)=0 then x-c is a factor of the polynomial f(x).

If any polynomial f(x) is divided by x-a and remainder is 0 that means f(a)= 0 .In other words we can say x-a is a factor of the polynomial f(x).So the statement :If a polynomial is divided by (x-a) and the remainder equals zero then (x -a) is a factor of the polynomial is True.

Anastasia uses the equation p = 0.7(rh + b) to estimate the amount of take-home pay, p, for h hours worked at a rate of r dollars per hour and any bonus received, b. What is an equivalent equation solved for h? h = (– b)÷ r h = – b ÷ r h = ÷ r – b h = ÷ r

For the answer to the question above, first we must enlist the given

p = take home pay
r = rate of dollars per hour
h = number of hours worked
b = bonus

So now we can find h and let us start with the formula.

p = 0.7(rh + b)

p = 0.7*r*h + 0.7b

p - 0.7b = 0.7rh

So the answer for this problem is

h = (p-0.7b)/0.7r

Jasmine wants to use her savings of $1,128 to buy video games and music CDs. The total price of the music CDs she bought was $72. The video games cost $43 each. What is the maximum number of video games that Jasmine can buy with her savings? 24 25 26 27

For the answer to the question above, she can buy 24 video games

Because she bought a CD on her savings, we must deduce the cost of the CD from her 1,128 savings 
1128 - 72=1056

Then just divide the difference to how much each videogame cost
1056 / 43 = 24

So the answer is she can buy 24 videogames.

A triangle has side lengths measuring 3x cm, 7x cm, and h cm. Which expression describes the possible values of h, in cm? 4x < h < 10x 10x < h < 4x h = 4x h = 10x

Answer with explanation:

In a triangle sum of two sides , should always be greater than the third side.

Sides of the given triangle are, 3 x cm, 7 x cm and h cm.

1.

3 x + 7 x > h

→ 10 x > h

2.

3 x+ h > 7 x

→h > 7 x -3 x

→h> 4 x

3.

7 x + h > 3 x, which will be always true.

Combining 1, 2 and 3 we get

→4 x < h < 10 x

Option A

What step in the construction of copying a line segment ensures that the new line segment has the same length as the original line segment?

Mmk sweetie, if you have a compass and straightedge, you can totally do this! I'm going to try to talk you through this, it's not too hard: 

1. Take your straightedge (like a ruler or the side of a folder or notebook) and draw five lines on a piece of paper, just make sure none of them aren't the exact same size (not too hard.) 

2. Now you want to make segments the same length as your original lines. This is great, because you have a compass, and compasses are great at keeping the length of things! Open your compass and put the pointy end at one side of your first segment. Now open it until the pencil end is at the other end--you now have the length of your first segment (lock your compass, or be really careful with it to make sure it doesn't change how far open it is.) Next, on your new paper, where you're putting the congruent segments, draw a point. Put the pointy end of your compass on the point, then make a small, curved mark with the pencil side. Take your straight edge, and connect your point to any point on that small, curved line. Do this for all 5 of your lines. 

3. Remember that your compass keeps track of how long something is, so in order to figure out which ones are least (shortest) to greatest (longest) just look at how far you had to open your compass. The one where you had to open it very little is your least, and the one where you opened it very widely is your greatest, the others fall in between. 

4. Okay, this part sounds tricky but really is not. Choose what segment you want to double. Once more, put the pointy end at one point on the compass and open it so that the pencil part goes to the other end, lock your compass. Just like you did before, draw a point, put your pointy end of the compass on that point, now instead of making a small mark like you did before, swing your pencil all the way around your point, you will have created a circle with a radius of your original line. Now, take your straightedge and draw a line connecting one side of the circle to the other side, going through your original point--congratulations! You've just doubled your line segment. 

5. Again, this one sounds harder than it is, and there's probably a lot of ways to do it. Here's how I suggest--First, make a copy of your longest segment in the way described in #3, but draw your line lightly. Second, open your compass to the length of your smallest segment. Now instead of drawing a new line, put the pointy end on ONE point of your COPY of your longest segment, and swing to make a mark on the line you just created. Now, connect your mark from your short segment, to the other end of your longest segment, and voila! You've now created a segment equal to the difference between the two. Hope this helped!

The sum of the angle measures of any triangle is 180 degrees. Suppose that one angle in a triangle has a degree measure of 7x+3 and another has a degree measure of 3x-6 . Write an expression for the degree measure of the third angle in the triangle.

The sum of the angle measures of any triangle is 180 degrees. It should be that a + b + c = 180. For this problem, we are given the two angles which we assume to be a and b so,

180 = 
7x+3 + 3x-6 + c
c = 180 - (
7x+3 + 3x-6) 
c = 180 - (10x - 3)
c = 177 - 10x

Hope this answers the question. Have a nice day.

Which terms could be used as the first term of the expression below to create a polynomial written in standard form? Check all that apply. + 8r2s4 – 3r3s3 s5 3r4s5 –r4s6 –6rs5

Answer:

Option 2,3 and 4 are correct.

Step-by-step explanation:

To find : Which terms could be used as the first term of the expression below to create a polynomial written in standard form? Check all that apply.

?+8r^2s^4-3r^3s^3

Solution :

The polynomials in standard form is written from higher degree to lower degree i.e. in descending order.

The given polynomial has degree 6: ?+8r^2s^4-3r^3s^3, and it can be ordered respect any of the two variables either r or s.

Adding a new term as first term needs to have degree equal or greater than 6.

1) s^5 cannot use as first term because its degree is less than 6.

2) 3r^4s^5 it can be use as degree is 9.

3r^4s^5+8r^2s^4-3r^3s^3 is the standard form.

3) -r^4s^6 it can be use as degree is 10.

-r^4s^6+8r^2s^4-3r^3s^3 is the standard form.

4) -6rs^5 it can be use as degree is 6.

-6rs^5+8r^2s^4-3r^3s^3 is the standard form.

Therefore, Option 2,3 and 4 are correct.
