What is the slope of EF if E is (0,-2) and F is (3, 2.5)

## Answers (1) 2021-02-12
Hi there, we can tackle this problem by using the slope formula, or (y2 - y1)/ (x2 - x1), between two coordinates, and these are ordered as (x1, y1), or E = (0, -2), and (x2, y2), or that F = (3, 2.5). We can then substitute 2.5 for y2, -2 for y1, and then solve the numerator to give us 4.5 since -2 is multiplied by a negative sign, and so, it is a positive number. Now, we can substitute 3 for x2, and 0 for x1, and then we can solve the denominator to give us 3. Finally, we can divide the numerator (4.5), by the denominator (3), and we get our result: the slope is 1.5 for EF. Hope this helps.

The bulk density of soil is defined as the mass of dry solidsper unit bulk volume. A high bulk density implies a compact soilwith few pores. Bulk density is an important factor in influencing root development, seedling emergence, and aeration. Let X denotethe bulk density of Pima clay loam. Studies show that X is normally distributed with $$\displaystyle\mu={1.5}$$ and $$\displaystyle\sigma={0.2}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}$$.
(a) What is thedensity for X? Sketch a graph of the density function. Indicate onthis graph the probability that X lies between 1.1 and 1.9. Findthis probability.
(b) Find the probability that arandomly selected sample of Pima clay loam will have bulk densityless than $$\displaystyle{0.9}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}$$.
(c) Would you be surprised if a randomly selected sample of this type of soil has a bulkdensity in excess of $$\displaystyle{2.0}\frac{{g}}{{c}}{m}^{{3}}$$? Explain, based on theprobability of this occurring.
(d) What point has the property that only 10% of the soil samples have bulk density this high orhigher?
