Which expression can be used to check the quotient $$\displaystyle{646}÷{3}?$$
$$\displaystyle{A}{\left({251}×{3}\right)}+{1}$$
$$\displaystyle{B}{\left({215}×{3}\right)}+{2}$$

1. First, we find the quotient:
$$\displaystyle{215}\cdot{3}$$
2.So to check, multiply 215 by 3 then add the remainder of 1. So, the correct answer is choice C.

Airlines schedule about 5.5 hours of flying time for an A320 Airbus to fly from Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles International Airport. Airlines schedule about 4.5 hours of flying time for the reverse direction. The distance between these airports is about 2,300 miles. They allow about 0.4 hour for takeoff and landing.
a. From this information, estimate (to the nearest 5 mph) the average wind speed the airlines assume in making their schedule.
b. What average airplane speed (to the nearest 5 mph) do the airlines assume in making their schedule?
Celine, Devon, and another friend want to purchase some snacks that cost a total of $7.50. They will share the cost of the snacks. Which of these statements is true? A. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is x+3=7.5. The solution to the equation is 4.5, so each person will pay$4.50.
B. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is x+3=7.5. The solution to the equation is 10.5, so each person will pay $10.50. C. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is x⋅3=7.5. The solution to the equation is 2.5, so each person will pay$2.50.
D. B. An equation that can be used to find x, the amount of money each person will pay is x⋅3=7.5. The solution to the equation is 22.5, so each person will pay $22.50. asked 2021-01-17 American automobiles produced in 2012 and classified as “large” had a mean fuel economy of 19.6 miles per gallon with a standard deviation of 3.36 miles per gallon. A particular model on this list was rated at 23 miles per gallon, giving it a z-score of about 1.01. Which statement is true based on this information? A) Because the standard deviation is small compared to the mean, a Normal model is appropriate and we can say that about 84.4% of “large” automobiles have a fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon or less. B) Because a z-score was calculated, it is appropriate to use a Normal model to say that about 84.4% of “large” automobiles have a fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon or less. C) Because 23 miles per gallon is greater than the mean of 19.6 miles per gallon, the distribution is skewed to the right. This means the z-score cannot be used to calculate a proportion.D) Because no information was given about the shape of the distribution, it is not appropriate to use the z-score to calculate the proportion of automobiles with a fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon or less. E) Because no information was given about the shape of the distribution, it is not appropriate to calculate a z-score, so the z-score has no meaning in this situation. asked 2021-01-02 A computer repair technician charges$50 per visit plus \$30/h for house calls.

The table below shows the number of people for three different race groups who were shot by police that were either armed or unarmed. These values are very close to the exact numbers. They have been changed slightly for each student to get a unique problem.
Suspect was Armed:
Black - 543
White - 1176
Hispanic - 378
Total - 2097
Suspect was unarmed:
Black - 60
White - 67
Hispanic - 38
Total - 165
Total:
Black - 603
White - 1243
Hispanic - 416
Total - 2262
Give your answer as a decimal to at least three decimal places.
a) What percent are Black?
b) What percent are Unarmed?
c) In order for two variables to be Independent of each other, the P $$(A and B) = P(A) \cdot P(B) P(A and B) = P(A) \cdot P(B).$$
This just means that the percentage of times that both things happen equals the individual percentages multiplied together (Only if they are Independent of each other).
Therefore, if a person's race is independent of whether they were killed being unarmed then the percentage of black people that are killed while being unarmed should equal the percentage of blacks times the percentage of Unarmed. Let's check this. Multiply your answer to part a (percentage of blacks) by your answer to part b (percentage of unarmed).
Remember, the previous answer is only correct if the variables are Independent.
d) Now let's get the real percent that are Black and Unarmed by using the table?
If answer c is "significantly different" than answer d, then that means that there could be a different percentage of unarmed people being shot based on race. We will check this out later in the course.
Let's compare the percentage of unarmed shot for each race.
e) What percent are White and Unarmed?
f) What percent are Hispanic and Unarmed?
If you compare answers d, e and f it shows the highest percentage of unarmed people being shot is most likely white.
Why is that?
This is because there are more white people in the United States than any other race and therefore there are likely to be more white people in the table. Since there are more white people in the table, there most likely would be more white and unarmed people shot by police than any other race. This pulls the percentage of white and unarmed up. In addition, there most likely would be more white and armed shot by police. All the percentages for white people would be higher, because there are more white people. For example, the table contains very few Hispanic people, and the percentage of people in the table that were Hispanic and unarmed is the lowest percentage.
Think of it this way. If you went to a college that was 90% female and 10% male, then females would most likely have the highest percentage of A grades. They would also most likely have the highest percentage of B, C, D and F grades
The correct way to compare is "conditional probability". Conditional probability is getting the probability of something happening, given we are dealing with just the people in a particular group.
g) What percent of blacks shot and killed by police were unarmed?
h) What percent of whites shot and killed by police were unarmed?
i) What percent of Hispanics shot and killed by police were unarmed?
You can see by the answers to part g and h, that the percentage of blacks that were unarmed and killed by police is approximately twice that of whites that were unarmed and killed by police.
j) Why do you believe this is happening?
Do a search on the internet for reasons why blacks are more likely to be killed by police. Read a few articles on the topic. Write your response using the articles as references. Give the websites used in your response. Your answer should be several sentences long with at least one website listed. This part of this problem will be graded after the due date.
