# A turkey costs $1.05 per pound. There are going to be fifteen people at Thanksgiving dinner. Plan for each person to eat two, 3/8 pound servings of turkey. How many pounds of turkey will you need to buy? ## Answers Answer 1 Answer: Answer: I will need to buy 22.5 pounds of turkey and pay$23.63

Step-by-step explanation:

Proportions

Each person is planned to eat 2 x 3/8 pound servings of turkey for thanksgiving dinner. This means each person will eat

pounds of turkey.

There are going to be 15 people at the dinner, thus the total turkey needed is:

The turkey costs $1.05 per pound, thus the total cost is 22.5*$1.05 = $23.63 I will need to buy 22.5 pounds of turkey and pay$23.63

### What is inequality?

Inequality is defined as an equation that does not contain an equal sign. Inequality is a term that describes a statement's relative size and can be used to compare these two claims.

You have 137.26 dollars in your bank account. If you do not have at least $50 in your account, you will be charged a fee. Let x be the amount of can be taken from the account without being charged. x + 50 ≤ 137.26 Simplify the inequality, then the value of 'x' will be x + 50 ≤ 137.26 x ≤ 137.26 - 50 x ≤$87.26

The inequality represents the amount you can check for without being charged is x + 50 ≤ 137.26 and its solution is x ≤ \$87.26.

Step-by-step explanation:

137.26-x=50

x=87.26

you can withdraw 87.26 or less, so the inequality is: x ≤ 87.26

Mary runs 7 miles in 60 minutes. At the same rate, how many miles would she run in 24 minutes?

7 miles / 60 minutes = x miles / 24 minutes

cross multiply and simplify to get 2.8 miles.

So, Mary can run 2.8 miles in 24 minutes at the same rate.

If X=2 Y=3 then, xy^2

The value of the given expression for the given value is 18.

Given that, x=2 and y=3.

We need to find the value of xy².

### How to find the value of the expression?

To evaluate an expression, we substitute the given number for the variable in the expression and then simplify the expression using the order of operations.

Now, xy²=2×3²

=18

Therefore, the value of the given expression for the given value is 18.
