The label on a 1 and 1/2 -pound bag of wildflower seeds states that it will cover an area of 375 square feet. Based on this information, what is the number of square feet that1 pound of wildflower seeds will cover?

a) 1/250 b) 250 c) 562.5 d)750 SHOW WORK


Answer 1

Answer: b) 250 square feet.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given: Area covered by 1(1)/(2) pounds of wildflower seeds =375 square feet

First we convert 1(1)/(2) into improper fraction i.e. 1(1)/(2)=(3)/(2), then multiply 375 with the reciprocal of (3)/(2).

Now,  Area covered by 1 pounds of wildflower seeds =375*(2)/(3) square feet

Thus , Area covered by 1 pounds of wildflower seeds =250 square feet.

Answer 2
Answer: so a 1 and 1/2 bag will cover 375

1 and 1/2=2/2 and 1/2=3/2

so 3/2 pound covers 375
2/2 pounds covers x
multiply both sides by 2 to get rid of the fraciton
divide both sides by 3
1pound=250 square feet so the answer is c. 250 square feet

Yoshi and Rana serve muffins. There are three muffins with nuts. I/6 of the muffins have nuts. What fraction of the muffins do not have nuts?


So 6/6 subtract 1/6 is 5/6 and that's the answer
Think about it if you have 3 muffins answer 1/6 of them subtract 6 with 1 then put it over 6. So the answer would be 5/6.

Philip is going on a 4000-kilometer road trip with three friends. The car consumes 6 liters of gas per 100 kilometers, and gas costs $1.50 per liter.If Philip and his friends want to split the cost of gas evenly, how much should they each pay?


Each person should pay an amount of $90 towards the cost of gas for the road trip.

What are Arithmetic operations?

Arithmetic operations can also be specified by subtracting, dividing, and multiplying built-in functions.

First, you need to calculate the total amount of gas that the car will consume on the road trip. To do this, divide the total distance of the trip by 100 kilometers per liter to get the number of liters of gas that the car will consume:

4000 km / 100 km/ 6 liter = = 40 x 6 = 240 liters.

Then, multiply the number of liters of gas by the cost per liter to find the total cost of gas for the trip:

240 liters x $1.50/liter = $360

Finally, divide the total cost of gas by the number of people in the car to find how much each person should pay:

$360 / 4 people = $90/person.

Therefore, each person should pay 90 dollars.

Learn more about Arithmetic operations here:


Each person should pay $90.4000km x 6L/100km = 240L x $1.50 = $360/3 = $120 per person

First you must determine how many liters of gas will be required for this 4000 kilometer trip:

4000km x 6liters/100km = 40 x 6 = 240 liters.

Each liter costs $1.50, so now find the total cost of the gas:

240liters x $.150/liter = $360

This cost is being shared by 3 people, so:

$360 ÷ 4 = $90

Answer is $90

How do I justify my steps when simplifying?


You justify a step the same way you decided to go through with it:
Remember a rule, axiom, postulate, theorem, or corollary you learned
that says it's a legal thing to do.

Like if you thought of erasing one of the terms in an equation because
that would make the rest of the equation easier to work with, you would
not do that, because no book or teacher ever said that it was legal.

Or if you thought of adding 42 to both sides of an equation, you could
do that, because you learned that "If equals are added to equals, then
the results are equal".  Then later, if anybody ever asked you why you
could do that, or asked you to justify your step, you'd tell them the same

Approximately 32,400 citizens of a country died in automobile accidents in 2015 express this toll in deaths per day round to the nearest whole number as​ needed


The year 2015 is a common year, with 365 days in total.
and deaths per day would be using death per year divide by 365 days. thus, we can get 32,400/365=88.767
