There are 15 balls in a box: 8 balls are green, 4 are blue and 3 are white. Then 1 green and 1 blue balls are taken from the box and put away. What is the probability that a blue ball is selected at random from the box?

SolutionIf 1 green and 1 blue ball are taken from the box, then there are 7 green, 3 blue and 3 white balls, a total of 13 balls. If one ball is selected at random, the probability that it is blue is given by

3 / 13

The length of a rectangle is 3 times its width. If the width of the rectangle is 5 inches, what is the rectangle's area, in square inches?

Area Formula = L x W

3(w) in

5 in

SolutionIf the width is 5 in and the length is 3 times the width, then the length is 3 * 5 = 15 in; The area is given by 5 * 15 = 75 in2 .

For all x >2,

(2x2 + 2x - 12) / (x - 2)

simplifies to ?

Solution1st) factor: 2x2 + 2x – 12

2nd) GCF: 2(x2 + x - 6)

3rd) factor: (x2 + x - 6) (don’t forget to carry 2 along)

2(x + 3)(x - 2)

4th) Simplify: [ 2(x + 3)(x - 2) ] / (x - 2) =

2(x + 3)

SolutionTo find the point of intersection of two lines, we need to solve the system of equations made up of the equations of the lines. We need to solve the following system of equations. 2x + 3y = 5 and x = - 2 Substitute x by -2 in the equation 2x + 3y = 5 and solve for y. 2(-2) + 3y = 5 3y = 9 y = 3 The two lines intersect at (-2 , 3).

SolutionWe first convert the speed into miles per minute. 66 / 60 = 1.2 miles per minute We now use the speed and the time to find the distance. 1.2 (miles/minute) * 99 minutes = 108.9 miles
