# Jeff has a box containing 26 tiles, each with a different letter of the alphabet. he randomly draws 4 letters, one at a time without replacement. what is the probability that he will choose the letters n, w, b, t?

Answer: The probability to choose letter n is . After drawing letter n there left 25 letters and the probability to choose the letter w is . After drawing two letters n and w there left 24 letters and then the probability to choose letter b is . After drawing three letters n, w and b there left 23 letters, so the probability to choose letter t is .
Using the product rule for probabilities, you can obtain that .

I just need help for 3 questions! Write an expression for the perimeter of the triangle shown below:

A triangle is shown with side lengths labeled 2.3x plus 14, 2x, and negative 0.2x plus 15.

4.1x + 29
4.1x − 29
4.5x + 29
4.5x − 29

Which expression is equivalent to 1/5m − 20?

1/5(m − 4)
1/5(m − 100)
5(m − 4)
5(m − 100)

Write an expression that is equivalent to 3/5 (3y + 15).

three over fivey + 9
three over five y + 15
nine over fivey + 9
nine over fivey + 15

1. a) 4.1x + 29
2. b) 1/5(m – 100)
3. c) nine over five y + 9 (9/5y + 9)

Explanations:
1. The formula for perimeter of a triangle is P = side a + side b + side c, so with these values it is:
2.3x + 14 + 2x – .2x + 15
Combine like terms:
4.1x + 29
2. Test the options to see which ones work out to the answer. You know that 1/5 of 100 = 20, so you need one with a 100 and a 1/5 in it. The only possible answer is:
1/5(m – 100)
3. Distribute the 3/5:
3/5 • 3y + 3/5 • 15 = 9/5y + 45/5 = 9/5y + 15

1. a) 4.1x + 29

2. b) 1/5(m – 100)

3. c) nine over five y + 9 (9/5y + 9)

Explanations:

1. The formula for perimeter of a triangle is P = side a + side b + side c, so with these values it is:

2.3x + 14 + 2x – .2x + 15

Combine like terms:

4.1x + 29

2. Test the options to see which ones work out to the answer. You know that 1/5 of 100 = 20, so you need one with a 100 and a 1/5 in it. The only possible answer is:

1/5(m – 100)

3. Distribute the 3/5:

3/5 • 3y + 3/5 • 15 = 9/5y + 45/5 = 9/5y + 15

Step-by-step explanation:

What is the solution to the inequality? - 9x – 15<3
x > 2
x <-2
x < 2
x >-2

x > -2

Step-by-step explanation:

First: - 9x – 15 < 3, you would want to take the 15 and add from each side.

Now it looks like: - 9x < 18

Second: You want to take the -9 and divide it from 18

Now it looks like: x < -2

Third: Chnage the less than sign into a greather than sign because we are dealing with a negative #

Now it looks like: x > -2

Evaluate the discriminant of each equation. Tell how many solutions each equation has and whether the solutions are real or imaginary x^2 + 4x + 5 = 0

x^2 - 4x - 5 = 0

4x^2 + 20x + 25 = 0

All these equations are in the form of ax^2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b, and c are some numbers. the discriminants of equations like this are equal to b^2 - 4ac. if the discriminant is negative, there are two imaginary solutions. if the discriminant is positive, there are two real solutions. if the discriminant is 0, there is one real solution.

x^2 + 4x + 5 = 0
b^2 - 4ac
4^2 - 4(1)(5)
16-20
-4, two imaginary solutions.

x^2 - 4x - 5 = 0
b^2 - 4ac
(-4)^2 - 4(1)(-5)
16 + 20
36, two real solutions.

4x^2 + 20x + 25 = 0
b^2 - 4ac
20^2 - 4(4)(25)
400 - 400
0, one real solution.
