Kendra makes $8 per hour mowing lawns in the summer. Gas for the mowercosts $16 and will last all summer. How many hours must she mow to earn at
least $200?


Answer 1


27 hours

Step-by-step explanation:

So t is going to represent time. $8t is equivalent to how much she makes for t amount of time. Being she is already down $16 for the gas, we have to take that into consideration that she must earn that back. Set up:

$8t - $16 = $200

Add like terms to get:

$8t = $216

Now solve for t by dividing both sides by $8.

t = 27 hours

Two sides of a triangle have lengths 9 and 15. What must be true about the length of the third side? less than 6 less than 15 less than 9 less than 24



D. 6<x<24.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the length of third side of our triangle.

We have been given that two sides of a triangle have lengths 9 and 15.

To find the possible length for 3rd side of our triangle we will use triangle inequality theorem.

Triangle inequality theorem states that the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle should be greater than the length of the third side.

Using triangle inequality theorem we will get:





Therefore, the third side of triangle must be greater than 6 and less than 24 and option D is the correct choice.

A​ town's population increases in one year from 50,000 to 62,000. If the population is growing​ linearly, at a steady​ rate, then what will the population be at the end of a second​ year?

subtracted 62,000 -50,000

difference is 12,000 add it to 62,000 then you get ur answer sorry if I'm wrong

Is (5,1) a solution of the system?



{x = 1/7,y = 1

Step-by-step explanation:

Solve the following system:

{-5 y = -5 | (equation 1)

{7 x + 6 y = 7 | (equation 2)

Swap equation 1 with equation 2:

{7 x + 6 y = 7 | (equation 1)

{0 x - 5 y = -5 | (equation 2)

Divide equation 2 by -5:

{7 x + 6 y = 7 | (equation 1)

{0 x+y = 1 | (equation 2)

Subtract 6 × (equation 2) from equation 1:

{7 x+0 y = 1 | (equation 1)

{0 x+y = 1 | (equation 2)

Divide equation 1 by 7:

{x+0 y = 1/7 | (equation 1)

{0 x+y = 1 | (equation 2)

Collect results:    Answer:    {x = 1/7,y = 1
