Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if 100 samples > 0.01 lbs then 1000 samples > x? cross multiply and solve for x ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0100x=0.01. Therefore, x=0.01/100=0.0001 so x * 1000 = 0.1lb

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says the weight of 1000 samples is one pound. to find the weight of 1 sample we divide 1 by 1000. > weight of 1 sample = 1 divided by 1000= 0.0001 The weight of 10 samples is 10 times this amount. weight of 10 samples = 10xweight of one sample ___> 10x0.0001=0.01 pound.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do it the same way I solved the previous question: if 1000 drops >10fl 10 drops > x? cross multiply and solve for x ^_^ try

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like 1000/10 X 10/x ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol no, cross multiply and you'll get: 1000x = 10(10) x = 100/1000 x = 0.1 ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0draw an X between them and you'll get 10(10) = (1000)x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but im not sure why u divide 100/1000

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to solve for x, you have : 1000x = 100 right? now get x alone and we do that by dividing both sides by 1000 x = 100/1000 :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The weight of 1000 identical samples of a substance is 0.01 pound. What is the weight of 10,000 samples? ok i had this... 1000x/ 1000 = 10/1000 x= 0.01 and it said it was wrong.
