show one way to count from $82 to $512 without subtraction or multiplication, but on a number line? This is me tryin to understand my second graders math homework and I am feeling horribly stupid about it. Please any answers to this specific question?


Okay, so we start at '$82'


let's add $100


lets add another 100


lets add another $100


lets add another $100


Now we can't add another $100, since that will take us to $582, and we need to get to $512, so lets add $20....


Okay, we're getting really close! Let's add $10.


(If you were to show your work on a number line, you would simply keep moving up by $100 until you couldn't anymore, and then move up by $20, and finally by $10, until we get to $512)
a simpler way to solve this...

Okay, so we start at '$82'


let's add $400


now lets add $30


**Hope this helps....
To do this we will just use the DISTRIBUTIVE property to answer it. 

We will add 100 5 times and then 12 in the end.

We will start with $82.

82 + 100 = 182

182 + 100 = 282

282 + 100 = 382

382 + 100 = 482

482 + 100 = 582

OK, so we have done $500.   

Now we will add 12. 

582 + 12 = 594

So, Our answer is $594.

There are 20 alligators in the swamp. Each year, the number of alligators increases by 25%. There are 25 crocodiles in the swamp. Each year, 10 new crocodiles join the swamp. Part B: How many alligators are in the swamp after 4 years? How many crocodiles are in the swamp after the same number of years?
Part C: After approximately how many years is the number of alligators and crocodiles the same? Justify your answer mathematically.






A(4)=20(1.25^4)≈48.82≈49 alligators to nearest whole alligator

C(4)=25+10(4)=65 crocodiles.





A typist takes 8 minutes to type 360 words. How many minutes will he take to type 225 words?
A. 5 minutes
B. 4 minutes
C. 3 minutes
D. 13 minutes



A. 5 minutes

Step-by-step explanation:

We can solve this question using proportions

Let x be the number of minutes needed to type 225 words.

8 minutes = 360 words

     x          = 225 words


360 × x  =  225× 8

360 x = 1800

Divide both-side of the equation by 360


(On the left-hand side of the equation, 360 at the numerator  will cancel-out 360 at the denominator, while on the right-hand side of the equation 1800 will be divided by 360)

x= 5 minutes

Therefore, it will take 5 minutes to type 225 words

Well, it cant be option B because then it wuld be half the time (180 mins.)

It cant be option D becasue then it would be over 360 mins, seeing that it only took 8 mins to type 360

And it cant be option C beacuse it would be too small, if 4 mins is to small then 3 mins is worse

Your answer would be A 5 minutes it's just a little bit above 4 mins(half)


Christopher is 20 years younger than Ishaan. Ishaan and Christopher first met two years ago. Fourteen years ago, Ishaan was 3 times as old as Christopher. How old is Christopher now?


Present: Ishaan = Christopher + 20       - Equation 11 years back: Ishaan-14 = 3(Christopher-14)    - Equation 2 Solve above equations: I = 3c-42+14I = 3c-24I = c+20 2c-44 = 0 Christopher = 22  then from Equation 1Ishaan = 22 + 20 = 42
Two years ago, Ishaan was 42 and Christopher was 22.


16 = –d + 6

A. 10
B. –10
C. –9
D. –15


16 = -d + 6 |-6

10 = -d |change signs

d = -10

Answer: B. -10


Solve: -16x^2 + 56x + 72 = 0


-16x^2 + 56x + 72 = 0
