Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Craig wants to use an elevator to carry identical packages having the same weight. Each package weighs 4 pounds and Craig weighs 90 pounds. If the elevator can carry a maximum of 330 pounds at a time, which inequality shows the maximum number of packages, n, that Craig can carry with himself in the elevator if he is the only passenger? n ≥ 60 n ≤ 60 n ≤ 236 n ≥ 236

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hello! The elevator can't carry more then 330 pounds. Since he already weighs 90 pounds, The packages can't exceed 33090.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but why 330 to (90)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You then take that number 33090, and divide by 4, to see how many packages he can carry. It's 330 to 90 because, we need to subtract his weight from the total amount the elevator can carry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since Craig weighs 90 pounds we have to subtract 90 from the maximum capacity of the elevator: 330. That's 240 pounds. Then we decide 240 by 4 to find out how many packages he can carry so 240m divided by 4 is 60. This means that Craig can carry no more than 60 packages with him on the elevator so the answer is the second inequality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you take 330  90, divide it by 4. Then you'll know the "maximum" that he can carry. The n stands for the number of packages.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. When you do the math you get b as your answer. Since n can't exceed the number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The sum of three consecutive numbers is 72. What is the largest of these numbers? 23 25 26 28 what is the three consecutive numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x2)+(x1)+x = 72 3x  3 = 72 3x = 72+3 3x = 75 x = 75/3 x = 25 So the largest of the three consecutive numbers is 25.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Consecutive means in a row, like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait so is the question asking the next 3 numbers after the choices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In other words you are finding 3 numbers in a row that add to 72. You can use the formula (x+2)+(x+1) +x = 72 or think about what 3 numbers can add up to 72.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question is asking what are 3 numbers in a row that can add to 72. Then you have to find the largest of those 3 numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but i can only pick 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, so once you find the 3 numbers that add to 72, you pick the largest one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.023 25 26 28 are the numbers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The "formulaic way" to solve it, is by using what @Janu16 said, but since that might be advanced for you, just think of 3 numbers in a row that add to 72. Then take the largest number from the 3. Than's how you get your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 Consecutive numbers that add to 9 is 2 + 3 + 4. The largest of those numbers is 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right, all you have to do is find 3 numbers that add to 72, and find the largest one. You have to think. Yes, it's b.
