# Three consecutive integers have a sum of 48. Find the integers.

Answer: Three consecutive integers, n, n+1, n+2, sum to 48.

n+n+1+n+2=48 combine like terms on left side

3n+3=48  subtract 3 from both sides

3n=45  divide both sides by 3

n=15, so the three integers are:

15, 16, and 17

Sales at a certain department store follow the model y=85-13.254x where y is the total sales in thousands of dollars and x is the number of years after 2001. What was the first year that sales fell below \$50,000?

2004

Step-by-step explanation:

Given :

Sales at a certain department store follow the model where y is the total sales in thousands of dollars and x is the number of years after 2001.

To Find: What was the first year that sales fell below \$50,000?

Solution:

We are supposed to find the first year that sales fell below \$50,000

Since y = total sales in thousands of dollars

So, Substitute y = 50

x≈ 3

The first year that sales fell below 50,000= 2001+3

= 2004

Hence the first year that sales fell below \$50,000 was 2004.

50 = 85 - 13.254x...... solve for x

x = 2.64071 round up to 3

hence 2001 + 3 = 2004

If 4y = 20 then 2y - 1 equals what number

4y = 20
y = 20 / 4
y = 5

2y - 1 = ?
2(5) - 1 = ?
10 - 1 = 9

The sum of two number is 47.The greater number is 9 more than the smaller number.Which equation can be used to solve for the smaller number? X+(x+9)=47 X-(x+9)=47
X(x+9)=47
X(x-9)=47

Let x and y be two numbers
⇒  x + y = 47

let y be the greater of the two numbers
⇒  x + (x +9) = 47

∴ the first option would be the correct answer.

6ft to 4yd as a fraction in simplest form

4 yards = 48 feet so it would be 6/48, simplified would be 1/8
. 1 yard is 3 feet. So, 4 yards = 4 * 3 feet = 12 feet. Now, the ratio 6 ft to 4yd is: 6 ft / 4 yd = 6 ft / 12 ft = 6 / 12

One pound of chicken cost \$3.00. Jim buys 8 2/3 pounds of chicken. How much does Jim pay for the chicken?

It would cost 26 dollars because 3 multiplied by 8 is 24 plus 2/3 of 3 is 26 and that is the result of 2/3 of 3 being 2 dollars
