# Mia 77 pieces of gum playing hoops at her school's game night. later she gave three to each of her friends. she only has five remaining. how many friends does she have?

77 - 3x = 5

subtract 77 from both sides : -3x = -72

divide by -3 on both sides to get x by itself : x = 24

The answer is that Mia has 24 friends (x = 24)

What are the slope and the y-intercept of the linear function that is represented by the equation y=-10x+1

The slope is and the y-intercept is .

### Explanation:

This function is written in slope-intercept form, which is .  In this form, is the slope and is the y-intercept.

In this case, and , so those are the answers to this problem.

For this case we have that by definition, the equation of a line of the slope-intersection form is given by:

Where:

m: It's the slope

b: It is the cutoff point with the y axis

We have the following equation:

So we have to:

Write the equation of a line that goes through the point (5,10) and is perpendicular to the lineY = -1/5x + 3

Step-by-step explanation: If a line is perpendicular, then take the negative reciprocal of the slope. After that, use the point slope formula to write the equation

y-10=-1/5(x-5)

Step-by-step explanation:

y-y1=m(x-x1)

m=slope

Two fractions have the same denominator.which is the greater fraction with the greater numerator or the lesser numerator

The answer is-The fraction with greater numerator.

Let's understand this by an example.
Take denominator as 4.
And two numerators as 2 and 3 respectively.

Now, the numbers are 2/4 and 3/4
2/4 = 0.5
3/4 = 0.75

Which one is greater ?3/4
Therefore, 3/4 > 2/4

So, the fraction with greater numerator is greater

What is the numerical value of 8b when b=0.5

Step-by-step explanation:

You multiply 8 times .5 because the b is connected to the 8, so you just do 8*5 then move the decimal point over.

So you do 8x0.5, which is 4

Suppose that g (x) varies inversely with x and g (x)=0.2 when x = 0.1.What is g (x) when x = 1.6?

0.0125
0.032
0.02
0.06

Suppose that g (x) varies inversely with x and g (x)=0.2 when x = 0.1.

If x varies inversely with y then y=k/x

Where k is constant of proportionality

g (x) varies inversely with x , so

g (x)=0.2 when x = 0.1

Plug in the values and solve for k

Multiply 0.1 on both sides

0.02 = k

so

Now we need to find g(x) when x= 1.6

Plug in 1.6 for x  and find out g(x) in the above equation

g(x)= 0.0125

A. 0.0125

Step-by-step explanation:

0.2*0.1= 0.02

.02/1.6 = 0.0125
