1. 12 bags for total cost of 119.88

2. Yes. You'll make $180.12 for your labor.

3. Other tools, transportation, weather delay etc.

4. $28.02

5. Yes

Step-by-step explanation:

Begin by finding the area of the field. The field is a rectangle and measures 360 by 160. The area is A = l*w = 360*160 = 57,600 square feet. One bag of fertilizer will cover 5000 square feet. Divide 57,600 by 5000 to find the number of bags needed. You'll need 11.52 bags or rounded 12 bags.

Since each bag costs $9.99, multiply 12 by $9.99 to get the total cost for the fertilizer. The cost is $119.88. If the athletic department pays you $300. You'll make 300 - 119.88 = 180.12 for your labor. This is a good profit.

If you have to purchase another tool for $40, then the cost increases to 159.88. This decreases your profit to 180.12 - 40 = 140.12. Divide your profit 140.12 by the 5 hours you work to find how much you earn per hour. You earn $28.02 per hour.

Yes, I would take the job, since $28.02 is well above minimum wage.

Which of the images above represents a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem? Explain your choice, and than explain how the figure proves the Pythagorean Theorem.


The triangle inside the three squares shows the proof of the Pythagorean Theorem

Area of one triangle is 25 sq units, so one side  = 5

Area of second triangle is 144 sq units, so the side  = 12

Area of third triangle is 169sq units, so one side  = 13

Therefore three side of the triangle are, 5, 12 and 13

proof of the Pythagorean Theorem

Base = 12

Height = 5

Hypotenuse = 13

5^2 + 12^2  = 25 +169 =13^2

The Pythagorean Theorem states that in a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

In the triangle inside the three squares, the hypotenuse is the longest side, which is 13 units long.

The other two sides are 5 units and 12 units long.

We can see that the square with side length 13 has an area of 169 square units.

The square with side length 5 has an area of 25 square units, and the square with side length 12 has an area of 144 square units.

The sum of the areas of the two smaller squares is 25 + 144 = 169 square units.

This is equal to the area of the square with side length 13, which is the hypotenuse of the triangle.

Therefore, the Pythagorean Theorem is proved.

Here is a diagram of the proof:

right triangle inside three squares. The hypotenuse of the triangle is the side of the largest square. The other two sides of the triangle are the sides of the two smaller squares.

The hypotenuse of the triangle is the side of the largest square. The other two sides of the triangle are the sides of the two smaller squares.

marc bought a new video game for $50. After beating the game he sold.it for 20% less than the orginal price. How much did he sell the game for?


the answer would be $40.
100-20 = 80
50$*80 = 4000
4000 divided by 100 = 40$
