# A sightseeing boat charges \$5 for children and \$8 for adults. on its first trop of the day, it collected \$439 for 71 paying passengers. how many children and how many adults were there?

if 71 paying passengers are all children, they should pay 5* 71= \$355 in total.

\$439 is paid so adults pay \$439-\$355 = \$84 more than money paid by same number of children.

each adult pays \$8-\$5=\$3 more than each child

and 71-28= 43 children

What is ratio?

Ratio is a quantitative relation between two amounts showing the number of times one value contains or is contained within the other. Mathematically, we can express ratio as - a : b. Similar ratio in the form of fraction can be written as - a/b.

Given is Mega middle school valentine dance in which four fifths of the students plus 7 teachers took part. There were total 495 people at the dance.

The ratio of students at the valentine dance = 4 : 5. In fractional form, we can write it as - 4/5. Assume that the number of students who attend the school were [x]. Then -

4x/5 + 7 = 495

4x/5 = 488

x = (488 x 5)/4

x = 144 x 5

x = 720

Therefore, a total of 720 people attended the mega middle school on the valentine dance.

A ball is thrown upward. What is its initial vertical speed? The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s^2 and maximum height is 4.3 m. Neglect air resistance.. Answer in units of m/s.

H = v o · t  - g t² / 2
v = v 0 - g t
0 = v o - 9.8 t
v o = 9.8 t
4.3 =  9.8 t · t - 9.8 t² / 2
4.3 = 9.8 t² - 4.9 t²
4.3 = 4.9 t²
t² = 4.3 : 4.9
t² = 0.87755
t = √ 0.87755
t = 0.93678 s
v o = 9.8 · 0.93678
v o = 9.18 m/s
