# What is decomposing fractions

Explanation:

"Decomposing fractions" means breaking them into a sum of fractions, often unit fractions (fractions with a numerator of 1). Here are a few examples:

3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8

5/6 = 1/2 + 1/3

3/4 = 1/2 + 1/4

The question. 6.   A store is offering a 20% discount on all sales over \$50. If you purchase a shirt and a pair of jeans for \$62.50, what is the amount of the discount you would receive?

A. \$15.63   B. \$10.00   C. \$12.50   D. \$50.00

The solution to this problem can be found by taking 20% of \$62.50:

0.2(62.5) = 12.5

The way the question is worded is confusing, but I think it's asking how much of a discount you would get.  You would receive a \$12.50 discount.

What is 2 1//2 divided by 5/12?

2 1/2 divided by 5/12 is 6.

Step-by-step explanation:

First, you convert 2 1/2 into an improper fraction which is 5/2. You then flip 5/12 into 12/5 because when you're doing fraction division, you always flip the divisor to it's reciprocal. You then multiply 5/2 x 12/5. You then get 60/10 which can be simplified to 6. Hope this helps!

A spherical scoop of ice cream with a diameter of 8 cm rests on top of a sugar cone that is 12 cm deep and has a diameter of 8 cm. What percent of the ice cream must be eaten to insure it does not overflow the cone when it melts?

Answer: 25% of the ice cream must be eaten to insure it does not overflow the cone when it melts.

Step-by-step explanation:

1. You must calculate the area of spherical scoop of ice cream  with the following formula for calculate the volume of  a sphere:

2. Now, you need to calculate the volume of the sugar cone with the following formula:

Where is the radius () and is the height ():

3. When the ice cream melt, the percent of the cone that will be filled is:

%

4. Therefore, the percent of the ice cream that must be eaten to insure it does not overflow the cone when it melts, is:

Write two operations in order that you would use to solve the equation 3x - 2=7 then solve the equation

Here’s how to solve it:
3x = 7 + 2
3x = 9
x = 9/3
x = 3

3x-2=7

You first subtract 2 from both sides, so 2-2=0 & 7-2=5

3x=5

Then you divide 3 from both sides to get “X” alone, 3x/3= 1x (but the the one is invisible so it equal “X”) and then 5/3= 1.66666..

So the answer to this problem is

X=1.6

toby works at new visions eyeglass company. he makes 7\$ an hour and piecework pay of 8 cents for every pair of eyeglasses he assembles. in one week, toby works 39 1/2 hours and puts together 203 pairs of glasses. what is tobys total pay for the week?​

Hello! So if Toby makes 7\$ an hour and every piece work he makes they pay him 8 cents. And he worked a total of 39 1/2 hours and assembles 203 pairs of sunglasses, First find the anwser to how much money he made in 39 1/2 hours, you multiply 7 by 39 1/2 and you get = 276.50\$ dollars. Then 8x203 equals to = 1,624, Lastly you add them up together and you get = 1,900.5\$ dollars.

\$292.74

Step-by-step explanation:

- For every hour, Toby makes \$7. That said, in that specific week, he worked 39.5 (or 39 and 1/2 hours), which is \$276.50. You get this by multiplying his salary by the total hours worked. This can also be seen through dimensional analysis:

× = \$276.50

(The hours get cancelled; if this is confusing, just stick with understanding my first explanation)

- The other part of the problem requires another calculation such like this. For every pair of eyeglasses Toby makes, he makes 8 cents, or \$0.08. In the specific week, he made 203 pairs of glasses. Through the same method, by multiplying 203 by 0.08, you get \$16.24. This can also be seen through dimensional analysis:

× = \$16.24

(The pairs get cancelled; if this is confusing, also stick with understanding my first explanation)

Now with ALL of this said, all you have to do is add \$276.50 with \$16.24 because the question is asking for the total pay, and the answer comes to \$292.74.
