#algebra answers



The solution here is not a number, because it will depend on the value of b. This is a type of “literal” equation, which is very common in algebra.

Example 3. The whole is equal to the sum of the parts.

The sum of two numbers is 84, and one of them is 12 more than the other. What are the two numbers?

Solution. In this problem, we are asked to find two numbers. Therefore, we must let x be one of them. Let x. then, be the first number.

We are told that the other number is 12 more, x + 12.

The problem states that their sum is 84:

The line over x + 12 is a grouping symbol called a vinculum. It saves us writing parentheses.

This is the first number. Therefore the other number is

x + 12 = 36 + 12 = 48.

The sum of 36 + 48 is 84.

Example 4. The sum of two consecutive numbers is 37. What are they?

Solution. Two consecutive numbers are like 8 and 9, or 51 and 52.

Let x. then, be the first number. Then the number after it is x + 1.

The problem states that their sum is 37:

The two numbers are 18 and 19.

Example 5. One number is 10 more than another. The sum of twice the smaller plus three times the larger, is 55. What are the two numbers?

Solution. Let x be the smaller number.

Then the larger number is 10 more: x + 10.

The problem states:

55 30 = 25.

That’s the smaller number. The larger number is 10 more: 15.

Example 6. Divide $80 among three people so that the second will have twice as much as the first, and the third will have $5 less than the second.

Solution. Again, we are asked to find more than one number. We must begin by letting x be how much the first person gets.

Then the second gets twice as much, 2x .

And the third gets $5 less than that, 2x 5.

Their sum is $80:

The sum of 17, 34, and 29 is in fact 80.

Example 7. Odd numbers. The sum of two consecutive odd numbers is 52. What are the two odd numbers?

Solution. First, an even number is a multiple of 2: 2, 4, 6, 8, and so on. It is conventional in algebra to represent an even number as 2n. where, by calling the variable ‘n ,’ it is understood that n will take whole number values: n = 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on.

An odd number is 1 more (or 1 less) than an even number. And so we represent an odd number as 2n + 1.

Let 2n + 1, then, be the first odd number. Then the next one will be 2 more — it will be 2n + 3. The problem states that their sum is 52:

Therefore the first odd number is 2 12 + 1 = 25. And so the next one is 27. Their sum is 52.

Problem 1. Julie has $50, which is eight dollars more than twice what John has. How much has John? (Compare Example 1.)

First, what will you let x represent?

To see the answer, pass your mouse over the colored area.
To cover the answer again, click “Refresh” (“Reload”).
Do the problem yourself first!

The unknown number — which is how much that John has.

What is the equation?

Here is the solution:

Problem 2. Carlotta spent $35 at the market. This was seven dollars less than three times what she spent at the bookstore; how much did she spend there?

Here is the equation.

Here is the solution:

Problem 3. There are b black marbles. This is four more than twice the number of red marbles. How many red marbles are there? (Compare Example 2.)

Here is the equation.

Here is the solution:

Here is the solution:

Problem 10. Divide $79 among three people so that the second will have three times more than the first, and the third will have two dollars more than the second. (Compare Example 6.)

Here is the equation.

Here is the solution:

Problem 11. Divide $15.20 among three people so that the second will have one dollar more than the first, and the third will have $2.70 more than the second.

Here is the equation.

Here is the solution:

Problem 12. Two consecutive odd numbers are such that three times the first is 5 more than twice the second. What are those two odd numbers?

(See Example 7. where we represent an odd number as 2n + 1.)

Solution. Let the first odd number be 2n + 1.

Then the next one is 2n + 3 — because it will be 2 more.

The problem states, that is, the equation is:

SAT Scores: Average SAT Scores for Colleges #sat, #scholastic #assessment #test, #sat


Average SAT Scores for Colleges

Score reports for the SAT I exams are cumulative. This means that each score report sent to a college or used for a scholarship will include information from the Student Descriptive Questionnaire as well as the scores of up to six SAT I and six SAT II exams. Separate scores for the mathematical and verbal sections cannot be sent. All testing results on the SAT I and SAT II (once released) are part of the same record and will be reported together.

As Colleges and Universities become more and more competitive and impacted the average SAT Score to get into schools has risen. The SAT was supposed to give students an equal opportunity chance into the Colleges as any other students despite family backgrounds, inconsistent grading systems, and curriculum standards in the nations high schools (www.collegeboard.com). Though now days these ideals may have been looked over. The SAT is a test that has nothing to do with the knowledge acquired in schooling. Furthermore, it does help if you come from a good background, because they can get a student the necessary tools to do good on the SAT. Though, regardless of all the negative implications on the SAT s I believe the SAT s still serve their purpose of providing colleges with a consistent and reasonable way to admit students into their college.

Rushing Scores: The College Board provides a score rushing service. There is an additional service charge for this fee. Rushing scores will usually speed up delivery of scores by up to a week or a week and a half. Rush reporting does not mean rush marking. Check the SAT I or SAT II bulletin for the fee schedule and other information.

Court Reporting & Stenographer Schools – Online Court Reporter Training #court #reporting,


Fast Start Your Court Reporting Career

Court reporting is one of the most unique and rewarding careers available in the job market today. When comparing the potential income to the relatively minimal amount of training time that is required, it becomes a highly desirable field to consider. However, not everyone can be, or should be, a stenographer. It is a skill that requires extreme dedication to succeed. If you have the personal drive to become a court reporter, we can help you take that first step.

Choosing a Court Reporting School or Training Program
Proper education and training is an absolute necessity for becoming a good court reporter. Our extensive list of schools throughout the United States allows the potential student to compare a variety of training providers. Research NCRA-approved and regionally accredited programs offered at educational institutions in traditional campus environments or through home-based distance learning. Students can easily find information on the certificate and degree programs available in your area from some of the top court reporting and stenographer schools in the country by using our find schools and requirements by state page or by checking out the various featured online schools located throughout our website.

Types of Jobs Available
Many people do not realize that less than one third of court reporters actually work in a courtroom. These individuals are called “official court reporters,” and they generally work in the same courtroom on a daily basis. The majority of reporters are referred to as “freelance court reporters,” and they work with different attorneys or agencies every day. And there are also digital court reporters, which primarily set up and maintain the necessary equipment to create an accurate record of a proceeding.

Judicial court reporting is not the only field that requires these versatile skills. Stenographers can transition into different and higher-paying positions, such as providing real-time reporting for webcasts and broadcast captioning or Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) services for the deaf and hard of hearing. With such a variety of options, employment opportunities for people with court reporter training and skills are almost always available.

For a student to be successful in performing stenography through machine shorthand or a stenomask, proper training is also necessary. Students are typically taught the principles and the applicable theory of stenography, as well as additional subject matter such as court reporting software applications, business law, and legal and medical terminology.

Informational Articles.

Education Requirements for Court Reporters

Finding a Job as a Court Reporter
A career in stenography can be challenging but very rewarding as well. This article maps out the basic path and offers suggestions to someone who wants to land that court reporter job.

Digital Versus Traditional Court Reporting
In this article you’ll find the pros and cons of both traditional and digital reporting, as well as details on a number of the newer technologies used by modern-day stenographers.

Recording speech using shortcuts or symbols is what a stenographer do during their careers. Today with technological advances, stenography is done primarily using a stenotype machine accompanied by wired and wireless laptops.
