Two cities along the river are 100 km apart. The powerboat downstream runs for 4 hours, upstream for 10 hours. Determines the river's current speed. - The pool

The pool contains 220 m^{3}of water. The pool can be emptied either: a) 10 hours of pipe B and 8 hours of pipe A, or b) 10 hours of pipe A and 7 hours of pipe B. How many cubic meters of water will flow in 1 hour from pipe A and how many from pipe B? - Three pumps

We are filling the pool. The first pump would be filled in 12 hours, the second pump in 15 hours. If all three pumps were running at the same time, it would fill the pool for 4 hours. How long would the pool fill only with the third pump? - Working together

One worker performs work in 3 days, the second in 5 days. How much do they work together? - Standard deviation

International express train drove from Kosice to Teplice. In the first 279 km, the track was repaired, and therefore it was moving at a speed of 10km/h less than it was scheduled to drive. The rest of the 465 km trip has increased the speed by 8 km/h than - The factory

The factory z can complete an order in 12 days, factory p in 18 days. For how many days does an order completed when the first two days work only the factory z and then both factories? - Water reservoir

One drain hole emptied the water from the tank for 20 hours, with the second drain for 30 hours. How long will the water drain from this tank if we open two drains simultaneously? - Std-deviation

Calculate standard deviation for file: 63,65,68,69,69,72,75,76,77,79,79,80,82,83,84,88,90 - Harvesters

The first harvester will harvest the grain from the field in 20 hours, the second, the more powerful in 10 hours. How long will take harvest this field by both harvesters, if the second harvester has to be set up first and this takes 2 hours? The first ha - A report

If the midpoint of a segment is (6,3) and the other end point is (8,-4) what are thw coordinate of the other end? - Coordinates of midpoint

If the midpoint of the segment is (6,3) and the other end is (8,4) what are the coordinate of the other end? - Precious metals

In 2006-2009, the value of precious metals changed rapidly. The data in the following table represent the total rate of return (in percentage) for platinum, gold, an silver from 2006 through 2009: Year Platinum Gold Silver 2009 62.7 25.0 56.8 2008 -41.3 - Right isosceles triangle

Right isosceles triangle has an altitude x drawn from the right angle to the hypotenuse dividing it into 2 equal segments. The length of one segment is 5 cm. What is the area of the triangle? - Center of line segment
