Which equation has a graph parallel to the graph of 7x=14y-8 A y=-2x-7
B y=-1/2x+4
C y=1/2x+1
D y=2x+9

C

Step-by-step explanation:

Parallel graphs have the same slope. To find the slope of 7x=14y-8 convert it to y=mx+b.

7x=14y-8

7x+8=14y

7/14 x + 8/14 = y

1/2 x +4/7 = y

The slope here is 1/2. And C has the same slope of 1/2. They are parallel.

what are irrational numbers/

To put it simply, irrational numbers are numbers that cannot be expressed as a fraction. In other words, irrational numbers are numbers that cannot be terminated(stop repeating) or continuously repeated as a single repeating number(.666 or .333 for example). So pi is a irrational number since it repeats but with different numbers repeating each time.

What is one-tenth of 12.5?

First write 1/10 in decimal form using your knowledge of place value.

.1

then multiply by 12.5

12.5 × .1 = 1.25 or 1 1/4

Anais bought 2 1/2 yards of ribbon. She had 1 foot 6 inches of ribbon left after trimming some curtains. How many inches of ribbon did Anais use to trim the curtains?

2 1/2 yards = 7.5 ft
7.5-1.5= 6
6 ft = 72 in
Anais used 72 inches of ribbon to trim the curtains.

6 (r - 4) + r + 30 - 7r

6r-24+r+30-7r (the we divide the regular numbers on one side and the others on the other side)Like this:
(6r+r-7r)+(-24+30)
(7r-7r)+6
And the final answer is 6

The work of a student to find the dimensions of a rectangle of area 8 + 12x and width 4 is shown below: Step 1: 8 + 12x

Step 2: 4(2) 4x2)

Step 3: 4(4 + 8x)

Step 4: Dimensions of the rectangle are 4 and 4 + 8x
In which step did the student first make an error and what is the correct step?

Step 2: 4(2) + 4x(2)

Step 2: 4(2) + 4(3x)

Step 3: 4 + (4+8x)

Step 3: 4 + (4• 8x)

Step 2: 4(2) + 4(3x)

Step-by-step explanation:

By definition, the area of a rectangle is given by:

Area = Length × Width

In this case, we know that:

Area = 8 + 12x

Width = 4

Therefore:

Step 1: 8 + 12x

Step 2: 4(2) + (4)(3x)

Step 3: 4(2 + 3x)

Therefore, the dimensions of the rectangle are 4 and 2 + 3x.

The mistake was made in STEP 2. Instead of 4(2) + 4(x2) it should be  4(2) + 4(3x). Which is the second option.
