So that means company B sells it for a $1 per cubic foot, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think com b will save more...because of cubic yards but idk how much u will save
anonymous
  • anonymous
right
anonymous
  • anonymous
it will take more for com a..just to get cubic yrds
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
Well... if there are three feet in a yard, you'd multiply the cost of company A by 3, correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
tht would give me 9
anonymous
  • anonymous
nvm i lookd at the wrong one
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
So what would you get, then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
33
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
Okay, so that's in terms of cents. Also, the answers are in terms of cents, so you'll want to convert company B to cents. So, company A is 33 cents per yard, while company B is 300 cents. Do you know what to do from there?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No. im completely clueless.. i know it may be easy but math isnt my best buddy
anonymous
  • anonymous
im struggling and if i dont complete this id hv to retake the class.
anonymous
  • anonymous
its a whole bunch of mathical problems i must do..this is only the half of it
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
I know, same here here >< I just happen to get this question. Well, what do you think you should do?
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm... let me think

The more you think about how to do it, the more you'll memorize and it can become easier

With practice, it'll become better. Latin is my best subject, but I used to have to study A LOT for it. When I didn't study in my Freshman year, I got like 75s, maybe 80s if I was lucky. I got into the habit of studying, which improved my memory a lot. This year, Junior year, I don't even study anymore and I get around a 99 on everything. It just became second nature to me. Other topics, however... not as easy :P

For this question, you might be overthinking it. Don't stress, try thinking about it logically :)

Sorry my tech was talkn 2 me
anonymous
  • anonymous
your right

  • brinazarski
It's okay :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol i added sub multpied and divided 30 and 300
anonymous
  • anonymous
multiplied

got nothing

Hmm... apparently, from Googling, a cubic yard is 27 cubic feet. I'm trying to solve it and not getting anything, so that's probably why. The math has to be reworked a bit, then. It's 300 cents for 27 cubic feet, and 11 cents for one cubic foot. If you wanted 27 cubic feet, or a yard, from company A, it would be 297 cents. The reason being, is that... let me draw it out, unless you understand why it's 297 cents?
anonymous
  • anonymous
u may draw it out
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
I think the reason a cubic yard is 27 feet is because it's cubic... yes, there are three feet in a yard, but you have to cube that. So, 3^3 = 27.

oh ok

  • anonymous
i may have to go in a few but ill try to get back on in my nxt class

  • anonymous
cross multiply?
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
For now, the answer is Company A, save 60 cents, since you might not have this question. And yes, cross multiply :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
seems easier when i look at it tht way :\
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
I can try explaining while you're still here, if you want!

And you're welcome! So, we figured out that company A sold 27 cubic feet, or a cubic yard, for 297 cents. Meanwhile, company B sold the same amount for 300 cents. So, you multiply them by 20, since you want 20 yards of gravel. Then you subtract the answers. So, 20(300) - 20(297) = 60. That's all! Understand?

Yes i get it.
anonymous

cool :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
but just in case i may still ask u to guide me.
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
Like I might've mentioned earlier, I generally suck at math, so I can't guarantee I'll get you the right answer for your next questions >_<;; It's your choice. And okay! I'll be on for a bit
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh thank you anyway for at least tryn. :D
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
You're welcome :)

Hmm, so if you get back on, are you just going to message me or something? And how long should I wait before getting off?
anonymous

not long my art class isnt far
brinazarski

I came on here because I have an SAT II Math level I test tomorrow...I actually took the day off to study ><;;
anonymous
  • anonymous
unless my teacher says i cant get on
anonymous
  • anonymous
bye. takes me like 3 mins to get there. or 4
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
So, about 20 mins, let's say?
brinazarski
  • brinazarski
Ah, you left >< After 20 mins, I 'll just assume your teacher said no. If they say yes before that time, I'll be here
