Ok

first find how far they have traveled so we will know how much more they need to cover

remmeber distance=speed times time


after 8 mins (from 10 to 10:08) or 8/60 or 4/30 or 2/15 or 1/7  hours

train a traveled 124.7 times 1/7=124.7/7 miles aprox 16.62666666666 miles

train b traveld 253.5 times 1/7=253.5/7 miles aprox 36.2142857143 miles

so subtract that from total distance
252.5-16.626666666-36.2142857143= about 202 miles
use fractions
3031.1/15 miles apart
how long till they pass

means that how long will they together make up that distance
it is 't' time
distance=speed time time

total distance=d1+d2
d1=124.7 times t
d2=235.5 times t
total distance=3031.1/15
3031.1/15=124.7t+253.5t
3031.1/15=378.2t
times both sides by 15
3031.1=5673t
divide both sides by 5673
0.534302838=t
about 32.05817028 mins

Derive the equation of the parabola with a focus at (6,2) and a directrix of y=1

Answers

Answer:

 equation of parabola

Step-by-step explanation:

Focus is (h,k+p)=(6,2)

And directrix y=k-p=1

When comparing the values we get

h=6 and  

k+p=2    (a)

k-p=1      (b)

For  solving (a) and (b) we  substitute k=2-p in (b) we get:

Hence, put in k=2-p we get:

Now, we have general equation as:

On substituting the values in general equation we get:

Distance from focus to vertex=distance from vertex to directix

from (6,2) to y=1, the distance is 1
the focus is 1/2 higher than the vertex
vertex=(6,1.5)

for
(x-h)^2=4p(y-k)
vertex=(h,k)
p=distance from vertex to directix

vertex=(6,1.5)
ditance=0.5

(x-6)^2=4(0.5)(y-1.5)
(x-6)^2=2(y-1.5) is the equation
or
y=0.5x^2-6x+19.5 or
y=0.5(x-6)^2+1.5

Find the value of x if GH and JH are both 13 units long. Justify your answer. (7x + 5)º
(x+ 47)º​

This is Geometry
Angles of a triangle.

Answers

Answer:

Step-by-step explanation:

we have the triangle GHJ

If the segment side GH is equal to the segment JH

then

The triangle GHJ is an isosceles triangle

Remember that

An isosceles triangle has two equal interior angles and two equal sides

so

m∠G=m∠J

we have

m∠G=(7x+5)°

m∠J=(x+47)°

equate the equations

(7x+5)°=(x+47)°

Solve for x

El caracol de granja se desplaza a una velocidad media de 5,8 m/h, mientras que el caracol común de jardín lo hace a 13,9 mm/s. ¿Cuál de los dos es más rápido?

Answers

Answer:

The common garden snail is faster than the farm snail

Step-by-step explanation:

The question in English is

The farm snail moves at an average speed of 5.8 m/h, while the common garden snail moves at 13.9 mm/sec. Which of the two is faster?

we have  

The farm snail moves at an average speed of 5.8 m/h

The common garden snail moves at an average speed of 13.9 mm/sec

Remember that

Convert m/h to mm/sec

Compare the values

1.61\frac{mm}{sec}" alt="13.9\frac{mm}{sec} > 1.61\frac{mm}{sec}" align="absmiddle" class="latex-formula">

therefore

The common garden snail is faster than the farm snail

In a mixture of​ concrete, there are four lb of cement mix for each pound of gravel. if the mixture contains a total of 115 lb of these two​ ingredients, how many pounds of gravel are​ there

Answers

For this case, the first thing we must do is define variables:
 x: pounds of gravel
 y: pounds of cement
 We now write the system of equations:
 x + y = 115
 y = 4x
 Solving the system of equations we have:
 x = 23
 y = 92
 Answer:
 there are 23 pounds of gravel

Read the passage and answer the question that follows: Despite our best efforts as parents, we will always make mistakes in raising our children. It's inevitable. There are so many decisions to be made in any given day, week, month, or year. It's an inhuman task to make all of these decisions correctly. Who would even want to try for perfection? We shouldn't worry too much, though, because it is precisely our mistakes that teach our children the most about life. Life is full of mistakes, obstacles, and trouble. Shielding our children from these by striving for perfection in our own parenting does them no favors. Given this, a parent might be tempted to give up trying to make good decisions and simply let the chips fall where they may. Admittedly, that attitude is not without its benefits, but it goes too far in the other direction. Children are much more observant than we think, but often draw the wrong conclusions from what they observe. If we give up trying to make the right decisions, they might get the message that we don't care about their future. We can take comfort in this much: we teach our children even when we're not trying to. That doesn't mean we should stop trying to do our best, to make the right decisions whenever possible. It just means that we shouldn't beat ourselves up when we make mistakes. Either it won't matter because it's something small, or it just might build some character in our children, a commodity that will serve them well. Which of these sentences from the passage most directly expresses the author's claim? (5 points) We shouldn't worry too much, though, because it is precisely our mistakes that teach our children the most about life. If we give up trying to make the right decisions, they might get the message that we don't care about their future.
