a baseball team has won 15 games and lost 12 games. Based on the results, which is the best prediction for the number of wins the team will have if they play162 games


Answer 1
Answer: 90
15 is 5/9 of 27... 90 is 5/9 of 162
Answer 2
Answer: games lost : games played --> games lost/games played

12/15 =?/162
 cross multiply and divide. --> 12 x 162/15 =129.6 
that means, they will lose about 130 games out of 162. therefore they will win about 32 games.

1. What could happen to the reproductive process of mosses during a drought?A)Mitosis in the sporophyte would cease and the reproductive cycle would stop.
B)Meiosis in the sporophyte would cease and the reproductive cycle would stop.
C)The flagellated sperm would not be able to swim to the eggs for fertilization.
D) The flagellated sperm and eggs would go dormant until water was available.

2. Which of the following is true of conifers?
A)The sporophytes grow directly from the gametophyte B)The gametophytes grow directly from the sporophyte C) The spores release from the male cones D)The spores release from the gametophyte


For the first question, the answer would be B, that the meiosis in the sporophyte would cease and the reproductive cycle would stop in a drought. This is because many die off in a drought so reproducing is not as common.
Secondly, the next answer would be D, that the spores release from the gametophyte. This is because only females reproduce in these cases.

3. x = 5

4. -5 1/25

Step-by-step explanation:


Subtract the 5 from both sides...

-3x = -15

Divide by -3

x = 5

For 4, it's just multiplying.

-2 4/5 in improper form is -14/5

1 4/5 in improper form is 9/5

-14/5 x 9/5 is -126/25

-126/25 can be -5.04 or -5 1/25.


3. a (x=5)

4. -126/25

Step-by-step explanation:

3. -3x+5=-10




4.  -(-2 4/5) x 1 4/5

(-14/5) x 9/5

= -126/25
