Do you know what a term is?

- anonymous

Not really

- anonymous

A term (speaking mathematically) is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together.

So with this question, a term would be each bushel of apples?

- anonymous

that was just an example

- anonymous

I mean the amount of money earned from selling a bushel of apples

- anonymous

Yes. You would have two terms: The cost per bushel of apples and the cost per basket of pears.

- anonymous

You would know because the two terms are separated by an addition symbol.

Are you able to figure out C or should I stick around?

- anonymous

I think I got it now

- anonymous

Thanks!

- anonymous

You're very welcome. If you come across any more hiccups, I'll be here! :)

- anonymous

I've got one more

- anonymous

OK

Courtney reads around 110 words per minute. She procrastinated and now has less than a week to finish her reading assignment. If the book she needs to finish has another 820 pages left and each page has around 350 words, how many hours should she set aside to complete her assignment? Show your work to receive full credit.

This is a pretty long one so hang in there with me...

- anonymous

Okay

- anonymous

First you need to find how many words she needs to read. If the book has 820 pages and they all have 350 words, you need to multiply 850 and 350 together.

- anonymous

I got 297500 words.

- anonymous

I got the same thing

- anonymous

Cool. Next, you need to find how many minutes it takes Courtney to read 297500 words. So take 297500 and divide it by 110 (the number of words she reads per minute).

- anonymous

I rounded my answer to 2705 minutes of reading.

- anonymous

I got it too

- anonymous

But the question tries to trip you up by saying, "how many HOURS should she set aside to complete her assignment?"

- anonymous

So I'd divide it by 60?

- anonymous

That means you need to divide 2705 by 60 (the number of minutes in an hour)

- anonymous

yes!

- anonymous

I got 45

- anonymous

That's correct! Don't forget your label though! ;) 45 hours

- anonymous

Okay. Thanks again!

- anonymous

You're welcome! I love to help! :)
