The diamond has sides of 35 cm and the diagonals are in a ratio of 1: 2. Calculate the lengths of the diagonals. - Exponential warm

Suppose that a body with temperature T1 is placed in surroundings with temperature T0 different from that of T1. The body will either cool or warm to temperature T(t) after time t, in minutes, where T(t)=T0 + (T1-T0)e^(-kt) . If jello salad with 30 degree - Diagonal to area

Calculate the area of a rectangle in which the length of the diagonal is 10 cm. - Radioactive material

A radioactive material loses 10% of its mass each year. What proportion will be left there after n=6 years? - Two chords

In a circle with a radius of 8.5 cm, two parallel chords are constructed, the lengths of which are 9 cm and 12 cm. Find the distance of the chords in a circle. - Equilateral triangle

A square is inscribed into an equilateral triangle with a side of 10 cm. Calculate the length of the square side. - Ruler and compass

Use a ruler and compass to construct a triangle ABC with AB 5cm BAC 60° and ACB 45°. - Bitoo and Reena

Bitoo ate 3/5 part of an apple and the remaining part was eaten by his sister Reena. How much part of an apple did Renna eat? Who had the larger share? By how much? - Tallest and shortest

Jenn is the tallest on the team. He is 1 1/2 times as tall as the shortest girl whom is 4 1/4 feet tall. How tall is Jebb? - Twelve

There are 200 draws in the raffle, but only 20 of them win. What is the probability of at least 4 winnings for a group of people who have bought 5 tickets together? - Rectangle area

The length of a rectangle of x units is increased by 10%, and its width of y units is increased by 15%. What is the ratio of the area of the old rectangle to the area of the new rectangle? - Cylindrical container

An open-topped cylindrical container has a volume of V = 3140 cm³. Find the cylinder dimensions (radius of base r, height v) so that the least material is needed to form the container. - Scouts 4

4/7 of the students in a school are boys. If 3/8 of the boys are scouts, how many scouts are there in a school of 1878 students? - Two forces

The two forces F1 = 580N and F2 = 630N, have an angle of 59 degrees. Calculate their resultant force, F. - Borrowing
