explain what steps you would use to simplify \(2+3 (9 - 5)\)

Answers (1)


The first step would be to solve everything in the brackets. \(\displaystyle{2}+{3}{\left({9}-{5}\right)}={2}+{3}\times{4}\)
After that you solve the multiplication. \(2+12\)
And then you solve the addition. \(2+12=14\)

An eighth-grade class rolls a number cube with faces labeled 1 through 6.

The results of 50 rolls are recorded in the table below.

Find the relative frequency that a number less than 4 is rolled.

\(\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \text{Outcome} & 11 & 22 & 33 & 44 & 55 & 66 \\ \hline \text{Frequency} & 66 & 44 & 88 & 1212 & 1010 & 1010 \\ \hline \end{array}\)

A number less than 4 was rolled \(\times ?\).

The number cube was rolled \(\times ?\).

The relative frequency of rolling a number less than 4 is \(?\%\).

As depicted in the applet, Albertine finds herself in a very odd contraption. She sits in a reclining chair, in front of a large, compressed spring. The spring is compressed 5.00 m from its equilibrium position, and a glass sits 19.8m from her outstretched foot.
a)Assuming that Albertine's mass is 60.0kg , what is \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), the coefficient of kinetic friction between the chair and the waxed floor? Use \(\displaystyle{g}={9.80}\frac{{m}}{{s}^{{2}}}\) for the magnitude of the acceleration due to gravity. Assume that the value of k found in Part A has three significant figures. Note that if you did not assume that k has three significant figures, it would be impossible to get three significant figures for \(\displaystyle\mu_{{k}}\), since the length scale along the bottom of the applet does not allow you to measure distances to that accuracy with different values of k.

Lightning produces a maximum air temperature on the order of \(\displaystyle{9.3}\times{10}^{{{3}}}{K}\), whereas a nuclear explosion produces a temperature on the order of \(\displaystyle{9.2}\times{10}^{{{6}}}{K}\). Use Wien's displacement law to calculate the wavelength of the thermally-produced photons radiated with greatest intensity by each of these sources. Select the part of the electromagnetic spectrum where you would expect each to radiate most strongly.
(a) lightning
b) nuclear explosion
