On three 150-point geography tests, you earned grades of 88%, 94%, and 90%. The final test is worth 250 points. What percent do you need on the final to earn 93% of the total points on all tests? - Medians in right triangle

It is given a right triangle, angle C is 90 degrees. I know it medians t1 = 8 cm and median t2 = 12 cm. .. How to calculate the length of the sides? - Faces diagonals

If the diagonals of a cuboid are x, y, and z (wall diagonals or three faces) respectively than find the volume of a cuboid. Solve for x=1.3, y=1, z=1.2 - Voltmeter range

We have a voltmeter which in the original set measures voltage to 10V. Calculate the size of the ballast resistor for this voltmeter, if we want to measure the voltage up to 50V. Voltmeter's internal resistance is 2 kiloohm/Volt. - Tetrahedral pyramid

A regular tetrahedral pyramid is given. Base edge length a = 6.5 cm, side edge s = 7.5 cm. Calculate the volume and the area of its face (side area). - Two chords

Calculate the length of chord AB and perpendicular chord BC to circle if AB is 4 cm from the center of the circle and BC 8 cm from the center of the circle. - An equilateral triangle

The perimeter of an equilateral triangle is 33cm. How long is each side? - Radius of the circle

Calculate the radius of the circle whose length is 107 cm larger than its diameter - Reciprocal value

How do I calculate a number x that is 9 greater than its reciprocal (1/x)? - The Eiffel Tower

The top of the Eiffel Tower is seen from a distance of 600 meters at an angle of 30 degrees. Find the tower height. - The tractor

The tractor sows an average of 1.5 ha per hour. In how many hours does it sows a rectangular trapezoid field with the bases of 635m and 554m and a longer arm 207m? - Depth angles

At the top of the mountain stands a castle, which has a tower 30 meters high. We see the crossroad in the valley from the top of the tower and heel at depth angles of 32° 50 'and 30° 10'. How high is the top of the mountain above the crossroad - Between two bus stops

Wanda lives between two bus stops at three-eighths of their distance. He started the house today and found that whether he was running to one or the other stop, he would have arrived at the bus stop. The average bus speed is 60 km/h. What is the average - Wooden container

The cube-shaped wooden container should be covered with a metal sheet inside. The outer edge of the container is 54cm. The wall thickness is 25 mm. The container has no lid. Calculate. How many sheets will be needed to cover it? - Geometric progressiob

If the sum of four consective terms of geometric progression is 80 and arithmetic mean of second and fourth term is 30 then find terms? - Base of prism

The base of the perpendicular prism is a rectangular triangle whose legs length are at a 3: 4 ratio. The height of the prism is 2cm smaller than the larger base leg. Determine the volume of the prism if its surface is 468 cm^{2}. - Average speed

The truck drove 1/2 of the way on the highway at 80km/h. The other half of the way 20km/h. Calculate the average speed
