    Some questions!

    1) Make p The subject of the formula below

    q= 1/5p=2
    (Thats 1 over 5)

    2) v = fw

    Calculate the value of v when
    f=4x10 to the par of 4
    w=5.7x10 to the par -7

    Answer in standard form.

    3) Calculate the value of f when

    v = 2.8x10 to the par of 8
    w = 5.7x10 to the par -7


    4) Mrs brown paid 115.20 for parts and 38.40 for labour

    What % of the cost was for labour?

    5) Solve the following inequality where X can take any value
    -12 < (Or equal to) 3X < 9

    6a) Round the following numbers to 1 signifiant figure your answer will be an approximation

    11.8 x 3.41
    -----------
    5.52

    6b)

    0.0029 x 0.041 squared

    7) Solve the simultaneous equations

    7x - 4y = 37
    6x + 3y = 51

    8) Not sure if you can do this on a forum but o well worth a try

    On the grid below, leave unshaded the region satisfying the inequalities

    -2 < ( or equal to) X < (or equal to) 2
    0 <(or equal to) Y < (or equal to) 3

    graph goes from the x axis -4 to 4
    Y axis is -4 to 4

    Thanks in advance guys!

    3) Calculate the value of f when

    v = 2.8x10 to the par of 8
    w = 5.7x10 to the par -7
    1) Which do you want?
    q = \frac{1}{5}p \implies p = 5q
    or
    \frac{1}{5}p = 2 \implies p = 2 \cdot 5 = 10

    2) (Chuckles) What is "par?" The British accent version of "power?"
    v = fw = (4 \times 10^{4})(5.7 \times 10^{-7})

    Rearrange things a bit...
    v = (4 \cdot 5.7) \times (10^4 \cdot 10^{-7})

    v = 22.8 \times 10^{4 - 7} = 22.8 \times 10^{-3}

    Now shift the decimal:
    v = 2.28 \cdot 10^1 \times 10^{-3}

    v = 2.28 \times 10^{1 - 3}

    v = 2.28 \times 10^{-2}

    3. This is the same method as the above. Try it. For comparison I get 1.596 \times 10^2.

    -----------
    5.52

    6b)

    0.0029 x 0.041 squared
    4) Percent cost of labour is going to be:
    \frac{\text{cost of labour}}{\text{total cost}} \times 100 \%

    5)
    -12 \leq 3X < 9

    Split this into two inequalities. (You can also do this stuff all at once, but since you are fairly new to this I'll try to keep it simple.)
    The first half:
    -12 \leq 3X

    \frac{-12}{3} \leq X

    -4 \leq X

    The second half:
    3X < 9

    X < \frac{9}{3}

    X < 3

    Putting the two pieces back together:
    -4 \leq X < 3

    6a) \frac{11.8 \times 3.41}{5.5} = 7.316

    To one significant figure we round to the ones place. Thus the answer is 7.

    6b) 0.0029 \times (0.041)^2 = 0.0000048749

    Probably the first thing you will want to do here is convert this to scientific notation, so we need 4.8749 \times 10^{-6}. Again, we need to round to the ones place (in the scientific notation, of course!) so we get 5 \times 10^{-6}. If you insist, we can write this as 0.000005. (Notice that none of the 0's in front of the 5 are significant. They are merely place-holders.)

    There are a whole bunch of ways to solve something like this. I'm going to use the substitution method.

    Solve the top equation for, say, y.
    7x - 4y = 37

    -4y = -7x + 37

    y = \frac{-7x}{-4} + \frac{37}{-4}

    y = \frac{7x}{4} - \frac{37}{4}

    Now insert this value of y into the second equation:
    6x + 3y = 51

    6x + 3 \left ( \frac{7x}{4} - \frac{37}{4} \right ) = 51

    6x + \frac{21x}{4} - \frac{111}{4} = 51

    Let's get rid of those fractions and multiply both sides by 4:
    24x + 21x - 111 = 204

    45x = 204 + 111 = 315

    x = 7

    Now put this value of x into the y equation (or either of the original equations):
    y = \frac{7 \cdot 7}{4} - \frac{37}{4} = 3

    So the solution is (x, y) = (7, 3).

    Just 2 more question
    What fraction must be written in the box to make the statement true

    7/16 + 1/4 = BOX! x 3/4

    2)45000= 90x500
    Express 4500 as a product of its prime factors


    And thanks ALOT!

    Well, call the unknown value in the box something like y:
    \frac{7}{16} + \frac{1}{4} = y \times \frac{3}{4}

    \frac{7}{16} + \frac{4}{16} = y \times \frac{3}{4}

    \frac{11}{16} = y \times \frac{3}{4}

    y \times \frac{3}{4} = \frac{11}{16} (Just turning it around.)

    y \times \frac{3}{4} \times \frac{4}{3} = \frac{11}{16} \times \frac{4}{3}

    y = \frac{11}{12}
