# The ratio of chaperones to students on a field trip to New York city is 2to11.If there are 297 students on the trip how many Chaperones are there

54 chaperones

Step-by-step explanation:

The basic idea behind this kind of question is that you want to keep the proportions equal. When there are 11 students, there are 2 chaperones. If there are now 297 students, how many chaperones must there be keep the proportions equal?

When answering this sort of question, you should construct an equation in which the basic ratio is equal to the proportions you're interested in. In this case:

2 chaperones / 11 students = X chaperones / 297 students

To find the value of X, you then cross-multiply and solve for X.

Cross-multiplying means that you multiply the numerator (top) on one side by the denominator (bottom) on the other, and vice versa.

Here,

2 chaperones x 297 students = 11 students x X chaperones

You then solve for X.

First, multiply the left side:

594 = 11X

Now, divide 594 / 11 to solve for X.

X = 54.

Because X stood for the number of chaperones, the answer is 54 chaperones.

Determine the x- and y- intercepts for the graph defined by the given equation. y = x + 8

a. x-intercept is (0, 8)
y-intercept is ( -8, 0)

c. x-intercept is ( -8, 0)
y-intercept is (0, 8)

b. x-intercept is (0, -8)
y-intercept is ( 8, 0)

d. x-intercept is ( 8, 0)
y-intercept is (0, -8)

The x-intercept is a point where a line touches or crosses the x-axis thus the x-intercept and y-intercept for y = x + 8 will be (-8,0) and (0,8) respectively thus option (B) is correct.

What is a graph?

A graph is a diametrical representation of any function between the dependent and independent variables.

For example y = x² form a parabola now by looking at only the graph we can predict that it has only a positive value irrespective of the interval of x.

As per the given function,

y = x + 8

At x = 0

y = 8 so (0,8) will be the y-intercept.

At y = 0

0 = x + 8

x = -8 so (-8,0) will be the x-intercept.

Hence "The x-intercept is a point where a line touches or crosses the x-axis thus the x-intercept and y-intercept for y = x + 8 will be (-8,0) and (0,8).

Give the length and width of another rectangular field that has the same perimeter but a smaller area.

First, let's get the perimeter of the rectangle:

Then, let's get the area of the bigger one:

Then let's try using a rectangle with a smaller ratio:

Then:

If you used a square:

There you have it. A rectangle with a smaller area with the same perimeter.
What does it show? The smaller the difference you get from width and length, the larger the area is.
Well the L and the W could be 75 and 95
Because 75 + 75 + 95 + 95= 340
And 75 x 95= 7125
Same Perimeter, different Area

If LN=54 and LM=31, find MN

The value of the segment MN is 23

LN = 54

LM = 31

MN =?

LN = LM + MN

54 = 31 + MN

Subtract 31 from both sides

54 - 31 = 31 + MN - 31

23 = MN

THE value of the segment MN is 23.

In this item, it is unfortunate that a figure, drawing, or illustration is not given. To be able to answer this, it is assumed that these segments are collinear. Points L, M, and N are collinear, and that L lies between MN.

The length of the whole segment MN is the sum of the length of the subsegments, LN and LM. This can be mathematically expressed,
LN + LM = MN

We are given with the lengths of the smalller segments and substituting the known values,
MN = 54 + 31
MN = 85
