You are making sets of pens and pencils to sell. You want each set to contain the same combination of pens and pencils. You have 28 pens and 80 pencils, and you want to use them all. What is the greatest number of these sets you can make

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

4 sets.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are asked to find the greatest number of sets you can make using 28 pens and 80 pencils.

To solve our given problem, we will find greatest common factor of 28 and 80.

Factors of 28: 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 28.

Factors of 80: 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 40, 80.

We can see that the greatest common factor of 28 and 80 is 4, therefore, you can make at-most 4 sets each having same number of pens and pencils.

\sf2x+3y=-9

Convert to slope-intercept form, y = mx + b.

\sf2x+3y=-9

Subtract 2x to both sides:

\sf3y=-2x-9

Divide 3 to both sides:

\sf~y=-(2)/(3)x-3

Now it's in slope intercept form, y = mx + b where 'm' is the slope. So the slope here is -2/3, which is Negative.

\sf~y=3x-6

This is already in slope intercept form. So the slope here is 3, which is Positive.

For #3 and #4, take any two points from the table and plug them into the slope formula.

\sf~m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)

Let's take (0, 7) and (1, 5).
               x1 y1       x2 y2

\sf~m=(5-7)/(1-0)

Subtract:

\sf~m=(-2)/(1)

Divide:

\sf~m=-2

So the slope is negative.

For #4, let's take (2, -8) and (3, -7)
                         x1  y1       x2  y2

\sf~m=(-7-(-8))/(3-2)

Subtract:

\sf~m=(1)/(1)

Divide:

\sf~m=1

So the slope is positive.

Set A: {38, 12, 23, 48, 55, 16, 18}

Set B:{44, 13, 24, 12, 56}

has a greater spread because

Answers

Answer: B has greater spread than A.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since we have given that

Set A: {38, 12, 23, 48, 55, 16, 18}

Range of A = Highest - Lowest

Range of A =  55  -  12

Range of A = 43

Set B:{44, 13, 24, 12, 56}

Range of B = Highest - Lowest

Range of B =    56      -     12

Range of B =       44

Since Range of B is more than range of A.

Hence, B has greater spread than A.
