# On a math test the highest grade was 38 points higher than the lowest grade . the sum pf the highest and lowest grade was 142. what is the highest grade on the math test

## Answers

Answer 1
Answer: 90.

142 - 38 = 104
104 ÷ 2 = 52

52 = lowest grade
90 = highest grade

This is correct because 90 is 38 higher than 52, and the sum of 90 + 52 = 142.

First lets do the math...
-72 / -9 = 8

the reciprocal of a number is just flipping the number.
example : the reciprocal of 2/3 = 3/2.....the reciprocal of 6/7 = 7/6...and when u have a whole number, put it over 1...

so the reciprocal of 8, or 8/1 is gonna be 1/8

the distance traveled by a swinging pendulum decreases after each swing. The first wings distance was 625 mm, The second was 500 mm the third, 400. What was the swing distance be for the seventh swing?

### Answers

Answer:

The swing distances form a geometric sequence with first term 625 and common ratio 500/625 = 0.8. The formula for the general term of such a sequence is ...

an = a1×r^(n-1)

Then the 7th term of the sequence will be ...

a7 = 625×0.8^(7-1) ≈ 163.84 . . . mm

Step-by-step explanation:
