A ship has 1400 people on board. There are 200 more adults than children. How many children are on the ship? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

So,

1400 people in total. Though, subtract 200 for the amount of extra adults. This makes 1200. Divide that by two. You get 600

You need to add 200 to the 600 to get the amount of adults. The amount of adults on board is 800.

The amount of children on board is 600.

600 plus 800 equals 1400, it makes sense. :P

Bruce jogs from his house to the library and back again to tutor students. The distance from his house to the library is 0.28 mile. If Bruce tutored at the library 328 days last year, about how many miles did he jog?

Answers

Answer:

Bruce joged 183.68 miles in 328 days.

Step-by-step explanation:

The distance from Bruce's house to the library is 0.28 miles. Then every time Bruce jogs from his house to the library you travel 0.28 miles. And when he returns again he travels 0.28 miles again. Then on ONE DAY Bruces jogs:

2*0.28 miles= 0.56 miles

The rule of three or is a way of solving problems of proportionality between three known values and an unknown value, establishing a relationship of proportionality between all of them. That is, what is intended with it is to find the fourth term of a proportion knowing the other three. Remember that proportionality is a constant relationship or ratio between different magnitudes.

If the relationship between the magnitudes is direct, that is, when one magnitude increases, so does the other, the direct rule of three must be applied. To solve a direct rule of three, the following formula must be followed:

a ⇒ b

c ⇒ x

So,

So, to determine the amount of miles trotted by Bruce for 328 days, a rule of three applies as follows: if Bruce jogged 0.56 miles in one day, how many miles did he jog in 328 days?

amount of miles= 183.68

So, Bruce joged 183.68 miles in 328 days.

0.28*2 is 0.56 and 328 times 0.56 is 183.68 mile

the answer is 183.68
