i would like to tell you a fast approach... ratio in equation can be written like this: let x -> employees 5x = men 3x = women 5x+3x = 104 8x = 104 x = 104/8 x = 13 women = 3x women = 3(13) women = 39 if you do not understand this thing, i would suggest the one suggested above :DDD

could you find the x ?

pythag theory there. a^2 + b^2 = c^2. thus, c (being the hypotenuse) = 20
anonymous
  • anonymous
and i made a = 12 and b = 16. then i added (12)^2 + (16)^ 2 = 400 which, if you square root, you will get 20 :)

same thing, except your b is now x so you got (12)^2 - (9)^2 = 63 which if you squre root... hmm, you get 7.937
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's wrong :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
aww :( lemme check my work
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's a 12 and a 9?
anonymous
  • anonymous
nop 13 and 9
anonymous
  • anonymous
soorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, ok. then is teh answer 15.811?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just switched 13 (instead of 12)into teh equation i gave above.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it's still wrong it's not 15.811
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think u have to round the answer to the nearest tenth
anonymous
  • anonymous
what did they give u as the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, nvm. it's actually (13)^2 - (9)^2 = 88. then you square root the 88 to get 9.4
anonymous

Gosh, sorry was not thinking it through earlier.

lol sorry ;p

i can't see the other #. I only see a 12 and x. It's alright :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
And that's not a right triangle, correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
12 and 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
the numbers are 12 and 10
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that a right triangle?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup right traingle
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\sqrt{12^2 + 10^2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
15.62 (i am using my comp calc now)
anonymous
  • anonymous
did u round the answer to the nearest tenth ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
is 15.6 the answer you got?
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol yup it's right sorry :(
anonymous

where r u from ?

(w+1)^2-63=0
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1333346898562:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry, so at the right, it says w+1 = square root of 63. Then, you just subtract 1 from each side, so it would be w = (square root of 63) - 1 the answer then would be 6.9

thanx :)

yw and good luck with the rest of the set! :)
