SOMEONE PLZZZ HELP!!!!! Sheila observes the Bermuda Triangle on two maps of different sizes. The triangles are similar and have dimensions, in centimeters, as shown in the figure below. The larger one has the upper left length 6 and the base of 3x the smaller triangle has the upper left length 5 and the base of x+3 What is the value, in centimeters, of x?

1st sq..the fraction...so its becomes 64q^4/q^17 64q^4-17=64q^-13 i think its the ans

Trevor is tiling his bathroom floor, which has an area that is represented as 175r^5 square inches. Each tile has an area of √64r^17The total number of tiles used can be represented by the expression below. 175r^5/√64r^17 Simplify the expression for the total number of tiles used. Show your work
dan815
  • dan815
do u understand it simplfied to that
dan815
  • dan815
go one question at a time... do u get how it simplfied to this
dan815
  • dan815
|dw:1371143456837:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i understand how to simplify that
dan815
  • dan815
ok then do this 175r^5/√64r^17
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol i dont know how to simplify all of that
dan815
  • dan815
start with the exponents what happens to that part
anonymous
  • anonymous
they factor out
dan815
  • dan815
XD
dan815
  • dan815
okay can u do this question first for me
dan815
  • dan815
|dw:1371143776054:dw|

lol i have no fkin clue how to do this XD
anonymous

x^6?
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol
dan815
  • dan815
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
thyen its x^5
dan815
  • dan815
x^2 means x*x x^3 means x*x*x so x^2*x^3=x*x*x*x*x= ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
cause when the exponent s are multiplied u just add them
dan815
  • dan815
forget all that BS just understand what exponent means first of all
dan815
  • dan815
math is very simple once you know the basic rules
dan815
  • dan815
you need to know addition,subtraction , multiplication and division
dan815
  • dan815
adding same number over and over is multiplication multiplying same over and over = exponents
dan815
  • dan815
r u getting this stuff

come on MAANNN...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok i got that part
dan815
  • dan815
so???
dan815
  • dan815
how can u represent that as an exponent
dan815
  • dan815
|dw:1371144124847:dw|
dan815
  • dan815
cant u see its X multipled by itself 5 times
dan815
  • dan815
that is what we call x^5
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok i see so the first question u gave me for the exponents would be 175/64r^12
dan815
  • dan815
yeah
dan815
  • dan815
|dw:1371144257286:dw|
dan815
  • dan815
see like this they cancel out because of this exponent property
dan815
  • dan815
we use short form, and just subtract the exponents
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok wb the numbers then
dan815
  • dan815
nothing, they cant be reduced any further
anonymous
  • anonymous
so my answer would be 175/√64r^12
dan815
  • dan815
ya
anonymous
  • anonymous
are you sure i dont think that is right?
dan815
  • dan815
u tell me.. u shud be sure, of your answer
dan815
  • dan815
if you are not sure then you dont understand what u are doing
dan815
  • dan815
you need understand till you are sure, this is the goal buddy
anonymous
  • anonymous
i understand how i got that but there asking for the total number of tiles he used not the simplified expression
anonymous
  • anonymous

dan815
  • dan815
okay look the total area = 175r^5 and each tile has an area of 64r^17
dan815
  • dan815
so to see how many tiles fit in this big area we must divided Total Area/Area of each tile = number of tiles
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes which is the expression 175r^5/√64r^17
dan815
  • dan815
yes
dan815
  • dan815
if ur still confused think about these easier questions simplify think about easier numbers and see what u wud do
dan815
  • dan815
say a basket can fit 50 bananas and you have 500 bananas how many baskets do you need?
anonymous
  • anonymous
10
dan815
  • dan815
theyre asking you same thing here with harder numbers
dan815
  • dan815
say a basket can fit 64r^17 bananas and you have 175r^5 bananas how many baskets do you need?
anonymous
  • anonymous
thats what im trying to figure out! first i dont understand what the √ affects in my results second if i do this ill prob get a decmil and they dont want that so i am going t have to put the an expression down
dan815
  • dan815
basically instead of bananas they are telling you that is area units and instead of basket we are putting it in a tile
dan815
  • dan815
say a tile can fit 64r^17 area and you have 175r^5 area how many tiles do you need?
dan815
  • dan815
forget that tedious stuff understand this basic math concepts this is what is really important
dan815
  • dan815
this is what will really improve your math
dan815
  • dan815
you dont need to worry about the answer value.. just know how you can do it
anonymous
  • anonymous
like 2.73 tiles
dan815
  • dan815
no i dont want the answer dude.. i just want the way you do it
dan815
  • dan815
say a basket can fit 50 bananas and you have 350 bananas how many baskets do you need?
dan815
  • dan815
do this just give me what u are going to do to get answer i dont want answer
dan815
  • dan815
just an expression
anonymous
  • anonymous
50/350=7
dan815
  • dan815
wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
uuuuuuuuuuuugggggggghhhhhh
dan815

its 350/50....

sIGH
dan815

you are letting the numbers confuse you
anonymous
  • anonymous
i typed it backwards again my bad
dan815
  • dan815
just stop thinking about the numbers please think about the concept
dan815
  • dan815
i dont know if i can believe that ur making these mistakes by accident...
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1371145415725:dw|i understand the concpt :
dan815
  • dan815
my advice to you is... dont think too much, if you dont understand something, just ask your teacher till you understand
dan815
  • dan815
yes ok good draw pictures in your mind
anonymous
  • anonymous
i get it how many little tiles go in the big one
dan815
  • dan815
this is all i ask of you
dan815
  • dan815
u get a medal for visualizing correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait i still need help finding the answer its the last question i have on the test PPPPPPLLLLZZZZ
dan815
  • dan815
now solve this for me|dw:1371145566708:dw|
dan815
  • dan815
oh this is a test... sorry i cant help u anymore
anonymous
  • anonymous
its a practice test
dan815
  • dan815
take a screen shot and show me its a practice test
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do i do that
dan815
  • dan815
ctrl+printscreen button on keyboard
dan815
  • dan815
then open pain and paste it there pressing ctrl+v and save it and send on here
anonymous
  • anonymous
i dont see a print screen button
dan815
  • dan815
ok i cant help u then sry
anonymous
  • anonymous
dude how am i going to finish this :(
dan815
  • dan815
if its a practice test, how come the answers arent given to you
anonymous
  • anonymous
they are on 1-18 the last 2 questions are written
dan815
  • dan815
anyway what more help u need?? u understand what we did so far right
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i just need to figure out the steps to simplifieing that expression to its simpliest for
