# Paula’s salad dressing recipe calls for 8 ounces of oil for every 3 ounces of vinegar. Carlo’s recipe has 1 ounce of vinegar for every 4 ounces of oil. Whose recipe has a smaller ratio of vinegar to oil? Paula’s dressing ratio of vinegar to oil written as a fraction is ____. Carlo’s dressing ratio of vinegar to oil written as a fraction is ____. A common denominator for these fractions is ____. Whose recipe has a smaller ratio of vinegar to oil? ____.

a) Paula’s recipe calls for 8 ounces of oil for every 3 ounces of vinegar
ratio of vinegar to oil-----> 3 ounces/8 ounces-----> 0.375

b) Carlo’s recipe has 1 ounce of vinegar for every 4 ounces of oil
ratio of vinegar to oil-----> 1 ounces/4 ounces---> 0.25

1) Whose recipe has a smaller ratio of vinegar to oil?
0.25< 0.375
so
Carlo’s recipe < Paula’s recipe

Carlo’s recipe has a smaller ratio of vinegar to oil--- > 0.25

Part 2) Paula’s dressing ratio of vinegar to oil written as a fraction is 3/8

Part 3)Carlo’s dressing ratio of vinegar to oil written as a fraction is 1/4  (is equal to 2/8)

Part 4) A common denominator for these fractions is 8

How do you evaluate cube roots and square roots

Cube Roots:

To find the cube root of a number, you want to find some number that when multiplied by itself twice gives you the original number. In other words, to find the cube root of 8, you want to find the number that when multiplied by itself twice gives you 8. The cube root of 8, then, is 2, because 2 × 2 × 2 = 8.

Square Roots:

When the square root of a number is squared, the result is the original number. Since 4^2 = 16, the square root of 16 is 4. The square root function is the inverse of the squaring function just as subtraction is the inverse of addition. To undo squaring, we take the square root.

Both Cube Roots and Square Roots:

Use square root and cube root symbols to represent solutions to equations of the form x^2 = p and x^3 = p, where p is a positive rational number. Evaluate square roots of small perfect squares and cube roots of small perfect cubes. Know that the square root of 2 is irrational.

How to solve 9x+5=28
-3x-10y=-26 by Elimination

So elimination
I assume that you meant to write
9x+5y=28 and not 9x+5=28
so

elimination is basically eliminating values

9x+5y=28
-3x-10y=-26
we can either cancel out the x terms or the y terms, I will cancel out the y terms

9x+5y=28
multipy both sides by 2
18x+10y=56

18x+10y=56
-3x-10y=-26  +
15x+0y=30
15x=30
divide both sides by 15
x=2

subsitute

9x+5y=28
9(2)+5y=28
18+5y=28
subtract 10 from both sides
5y=10
divide both sides by 5
y=2

x=2
y=2

9x + 5 = 28
- 5   - 5
9x = 23
9      9
x = 2⁵/₉

-3(2⁵/₉) - 10y = -26
-7²/₃ - 10y = -26
+ 7²/₃             + 7²/₃
-10y = -18¹/₃
-10      -10
y = 1⁵/₆
(x, y) = (2⁵/₉, 1⁵/₆)
