Sarah described the following situation: When one patient with a common cold takes a medicine and the other patient does not take any medicine, the person who takes medicine recovers faster than the person who does not take medicine.
Which of the following best describes the situation?

This is an example of correlation because one patient is sick and the other is not.
This is an example of causation because both patients need medicine.
This is an example of correlation because both patients are sick at the same time.
This is an example of causation because the patient that took the medication recovered quicker than the patient that did not.

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

This is an example of causation because the patient that took the medication recovered quicker than the patient that did not.

Step-by-step explanation:

Correlation is a statistical technique that shows that a relation exists between 2 variables but does not give any explanation about the relationship

Example: Correlation between Air Conditioner sales and sunglasses sold.

As the sales of the air conditioner is increasing so do the sales of sunglasses.

Causation is a statistical technique that shows a relation ship between 2 variable. It emphasizes the fact that  any change in the value of one variable will cause a change in the value of another variable.

Answer 2
Answer:

Answer:

Option D.

Step-by-step explanation:

D. This is an example of causation because the patient that took the medication recovered quicker than the patient that did not.

The combined height of one oak tree and one pine tree is 21 meters. The height of 4 oak trees stacked on top of each other is 24 meters taller than one pine tree. How tall is the oak tree and the pine tree

Answers

Answer:

Height of an oak tree= 9 meters

Height of a pine tree = 12 meters

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

The combined height of 1 oak tree and 1 pine tree = 21 meters

Height of 4 oak trees = 24 meters more than 1 pine tree

To find the height of 1 pine tree and height of one oak tree.

Solution:

Let the height of one oak tree be = meters.

Let height of one pine tree = meters.

Combined height can be given as :

-------------[1]

Height of 4 oak trees = 24 meters more than 1 pine tree

The above statement can be given as :

------------[2]

Rearranging equation [2] by subtracting both sides by .

-------------[2]

Adding rearranged equation [2] to [1].

+--------------------

Dividing both sides by 5.

Plugging in   in equation [1]

Subtracting both sides by 9.

Height of an oak tree= 9 meters

Height of a pine tree = 12 meters

rectangle A measured by 3 inches. Rectangle B is a scaled copy of rectangle A. Select all of the measures pairs that could be the dimensions of rectangle B. A. 4.5 inches by 1.5 B. 8 inches by 2 inches D. 13.5 inches by 4.5 inches E. 90 inches by 30 inches

Answers

In the given rectangle, rectangle A, the length is 9 inches, and the width is 3 inches.
The length is 3 times the width.

Any rectangle in which the length is 3 times the width is similar to rectangle A.
Take each option and multiply the width by 3. If that is the length they tell you, then that rectangle is similar to rectangle A.

Option A.
1.5 in. * 3 = 4.5 in.
You are given length = 4.5 in.
It is similar.

Option B.
Width = 2 in.
2 in. * 3 = 6 in.
Given length is 8 in.
Not similar.

Option D.
Width = 4.5 in.
3 * 4.5 in. = 13.5 in.
Given length = 13.5 in.
Similar

Option E.
Width = 30 in.
3 * 30 in. = 90 in.
Given length = 90 in.
Similar.

HIGH SCHOOL

The formula F=9/5(k-273.15)+32 converts a temperature from kelvin K to degrees Fahrenheit F. a.solve the formula for k
b. convert 180 degrees Fahrenheit(F) into kelvin(K). round your answer to the near test hundredth.

Answers

Step One

Subtract 32 from both sides.

F - 32 = 9/5(k - 273.15)  

Step Two

Multiply by 5/9 on both sides.

5/9*(F - 32) = 5/9 * 9/5 (k - 273.15)

5/9*(F - 32) = k - 273.15

Step Three.

Add 273.15 to both sides.

5/9*(F - 32) + 273.15 = k

Problem B

F = 180

Solve

5/9*(F - 32) + 273.15 = k

5/9*(180 -32) + 273.15 = k

5/9*148 + 273.15 = k

82.2222 + 273.15 = k

355.37 = k

k = 355.4  

Answer :

(a)

(b) The temperature in Kelvin is 355.37 K

Step by step explanation :

The conversion used for the temperature from degree Fahrenheit to Kelvin is:

where,

= temperature in Fahrenheit

= temperature in Kelvin

(a) The formula for kelvin (K) will be:

Thus, the formula will be:

(b) Now convert into Kelvin (K).

Thus, the temperature in Kelvin is 355.37 K
