# Troy is making a flag shaped like a square. Each side measure 12 inches. He wants to add ribbon along the edges. He has 36 inches of ribbon. Does he have enough ribbon? Explain.

The ribbon required to be combined is 48 inches but he had only 36 inches. so, he does not have enough ribbons.

Given that,

Troy is making a flag-shaped like a square.

Each side measure 12 inches.

He wants to add a ribbon along the edges. He has 36 inches of ribbon.

We have to determine,

Does he have enoughribbon?

According to the question,

A square has 4 sides, and all sides have the same length.

If one side measures 12 inches, then the total length of all sides is,

= 4 × 12 inches = 48 inches

All edges combined are a total of 48 inches.

He only has 36 inches of ribbon, so he does not have enough ribbon.

Hence, The ribbon required to be combined is 48 inches but he had only 36 inches. so, he does not have enough ribbons.

Answer: Since each side is 12 inches, then multiply 12 by 4 since it's a square and has 4 sides which makes 48.
48 is bigger than 36, so therefore, Troy does not have enough ribbon.

An owner of a small store knows that in the last week 54 customers paid with cash, 42 paid with a debit card, and 153 paid with a credit card. Based on the number of customers from last week, which fraction is closest to the probability that the next customer will pay with cash?

Based on the number of customers from last week, the fraction is closest to the probability that the next customer will pay with cash is 54/249

### How to get population mean?

Suppose population is wide and you cannot evaluate all the population at once. Then you do sampling of large enough size randomly. The mean of that sample will be then the estimate for the mean that population will pertain.

### What is experimental probability?

Experimental probability calculates the probability of some event from the results of experiments.

For an event E, we get the experimental probability of that event

where, is denoting experimental probability of occurrence of E.

Here, the customers are not all known to us, they are population.

But we have some data of the previous customer. Taking them as the sample, we have:

Experimental probability of an event from sample = Predicted probability for that event in population.

For this case, from the previous data, we have:

• 54 customers paid with cash
• 42 customers paid with debit card
• 153 customers paid with a credit card.

Total customers who paid = 153 + 42 + 54 = 249

Total customers who paid with cash = 54

Thus, if we take:

E = event that a customer pays with cash, then:

This is the probability deduced from the previous data that the next customer will pay with cash.

Thus, based on the number of customers from last week, the fraction is closest to the probability that the next customer will pay with cash is 54/249

﻿You would add 54+42+153=249 to find the total amount of customers from the previous week. Then you would divide 54/249= 0.2168 to find the amount of customers that used cash to total customers. The closest fraction would be about 1/5.

AB = 17.3 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

We require to find the measure of ∠A then use the cosine ratio to calculate AB

sum the parts of the ratio 3 + 2 = 5 parts, then

90° ÷ 5 = 18° ← value of 1 part of ratio

∠A = 2 × 18° = 36°, thus

cos36° = =

Multiply both sides by AB

AB × cos36° = 14 ( divide both sides by cos36° )

AB = ≈ 17.3 cm

What is 2 3/4 minus 1 5/16?

Hey there, 2 3/4=11/4 and 1 5/16=21/16, 11*16-21*4/4*16=176-84/64=92/64, 92/64 simplified is 23/16, 23/16 as a mixed number is 1 7/16. Therefore, 2 3/4 minus 1 5/16 = 1 7/16
2 3/4= 11/4 which can be multiplied by 4 to be 44/16. 44-22 equals 22, therefore the answer is 22/16, which can be simplified to 11/8 or 1 3/8.
