I need help with B & C Elsa knows that for every bushel of apples she sells she earns $9 and for every basket of pears she earns $11. She uses the expression 9a + 11p to keep track of her earnings. Part A: Identify the coefficients and variables in the expression. (3 points) Part B: How many terms are in the expression, what are they, and how do you know? (4 points) Part C: Which term in the expression shows the total earned from selling baskets of pears? (3 points)

    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?

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

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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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).

    I rounded my answer to 2705 minutes of reading.

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

    So I'd divide it by 60?

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