X to Y to Z
Y is three more than twice the square of X, and Z is the square of Y, decreased by twice Y. If four times the square of X is multiplied by 2 more than the square of X, and the result is subtracted from Z, what will the final result be?
SolutionIn order to make it feasible for teachers to use these problems in their classwork, no solutions are publicly visible, so students cannot simply look up the answers. If you would like to view the solutions to these problems, you must have a Virtual Classroom subscription.
The shortest side of a triangle has length 16 inches. The perimeter of the triangle is nineteen less than three times the longest side.The remaining side is eight inches shorter than the longest side. What are the side lengths of the triangle?
Manny is climbing to the top of skyscraper, starting from the ground floor (Floor #1). There are 12 steps between each floor. When he reaches the landing for the nth floor, the number of floors he has left to climb is equal to a quarter of the number of steps he's already climbed. When he reaches the landing for the kth floor, the number of floors he has left to climb is equal to one sixth the number of steps he's already climbed.
When Manny has climbed halfway to the top of the skyscraper, the number of steps he has climbed is a three digit number, with the digits in descending order from left to right.
If the skyscraper has at least 40 floors, and no more than 110 floors, how many stairs does Manny climb in all?
The sum of two numbers is eleven less than four times the smaller number. The difference between the numbers is five more than the smaller number. What is the larger number?
Mr. T wants each of his math students to shake hands with each of his other math students exactly once. He also wants each of his math students to shake Mr. H's hand twice. Mr. T shakes Mr. H's hand once. If there were 78 handshakes in all, how many math students does Mr. T have?
The difference between two numbers is twice the smaller number. The smaller number is 10 less than the larger number. Find the smaller number.
The sum of two numbers is six more than twice the smaller number, and if the larger number is multiplied by three, the result is ten less than seven times the smaller number. What is the larger number?
The sum of two pairs of consecutive integers is 100. the difference between the largest and the smallest of these four integers is 9 less than the average of the four integers.
Find all four integers.
In my house there are both ants and spiders. Together there are 240 legs. If there were half as many spiders, and twice as many ants, there would be 336 legs. How many ants do I have in my house?
The price of an antique table varies directly with age of the antique (in years) and with the surface area (in square feet). The price varies inversely with the number of scratches on the surface. A table which is 120 years old, is 3 feet x 8 feet , and has n scratches on the surface, costs $4,320. A table which is 140 years old, is 4 feet x 8 feet, and has n - 1 scratches on the surface, costs $7,680. If a table 150 years old, which is 4 feet x 6 feet , costs $10,800, how many scratches are on the surface?
