replace x with g(x)
now we need to find out what we plug in for g(x) to get x+3 under the radical
g(x) +2 is under the radical. we need x+3 , so we replace g(x) with x+`
so g(x)+2 becomes x+1+2 is x+3
hence g(x) is x+1
1. x = 67
2. we know that vertical angles are equal so the angle opposite it is equal to 67. call that angle y. we also that that corresponding angles are equal if the lines are parallel. angle y and angle x are corresponding angles. that means x is equal to y. since 67 = y and y =x we know that 67=x
each person will get or approximately 0.23 pounds of chicken.
this is a word problem involving fractions. using key words and phrases from the problem, we can decide which operation we need to use to solve. since jamie is splitting the chicken equally between three people, she would need to divide the amount of chicken she has by 3:
since we can't divide fractions, we need to use the 'keep-change-flip' rule to keep the first fraction, change the operation to multiplication and flip the second fraction:
we can convert the fraction into a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator: 7÷30≈0.23 pounds per person.
